I like the coat dress. The tartan was very appropriate for the occasion. Generally, I think heels might work better, but given the temperature, I think boots were a smart choice and still worked. I like these boots better than the other pair.

It could have been nice, but unfortunately it is badly fitted for such an expensive piece, looks saggy & dull.
I dont mind boots but those look old and worn.

I do like that Kate wore her black knee length boots - they were right for the outdoor element of the event.

I just think Kate has alot nicer pieces in her wardrobe than this. Maybe i find the tartan too much - a tartan skirt and plain jacket would have been nicer IMO

Nice coat and nothing wrong with the boots, except maybe a good brushing. I think she looks good today.

i think she looks lovely - like all good royal women, she needs some tartan in her wardrobe and this is a very flattering choice for her. Im sure we will see this next summer at Balmoral. and I like the boots with it - it is a very feminine boot with a pretty heel.

We're going to have to disagree about the fit, which you another poster see. I simply can't find any evidence of bad workmanship in this coat.

I'm surprised how well she was able to play in high heeled boots today.

I love today's look. The coat is elegant and sophisticated, and the boots, while not the best choice of footwear, do go nicely with it. I also love how nicely her hair looked. Overall, very, very delightful.

Do I not know the meaning of ill fitted? Because that coat looks tailored to perfection and I thought 'ill fitting' meant that it didn't fit at all?

The coat is beautifully tailored and I love the tartan fabric! I don't know where people are getting 'ill-fitted' from. This is one of my favorite looks of hers to date. I even love the boots which is unusual for me as I'm not a fan of boots.

I thought peplum too at first but I've checked lots of pix and there is no peplum, but there are pocket flaps.

I loved this look - I'm a real fan of black watch tartan - which is a weave, not a print. She has the height to carry the "swing" of the full skirt. Overall - very elegant.

I like the tartan. The cut and overall look is so so.

I love the tartan. I would have liked to see a different pair of shoes than the boots. Otherwise, I thought Kate looked great.

I think Catherine looked really lovely in the tartan coat dress. It suited her colouring and flattered her with it's fitted bodice and flared skirt. Not too sure about the accessories . . . the suede boots looked a little too well worn, the earrings being a little too "evening" or "summer".

As to her hair . . .

The coat itself might not be badly tailored, to me, this just doesnt look well fitted to Kate's body.

I agree with those who said its too much tartan, either or combination with black would have looked better.

I like the look, if she had worn just one part tartan it would have been a bit too much like the schooluniform.

Was looking at how she sits with crossed ankles taking to the kindergarden children, she did not do that when she was his girlfriend. Perhaps the palace thinks things like that are necessary. In Holland Maxima would not bother about that, I can not remember which princesses do nowadays.

It's a one-piece coat. You can see the front opening in this picture:

No such thing as 'too much' tartan on St Andrews Day. Its the one day to go all out.
