This one doesnt seem to fit too well. Not liking the color either.
Hey Kate give hubby some of the umbrella action.

Have to say i like this Jenny Packham dress - the duck egg colour was appropiate for an evento to the war graves. I like this style on Kate and the top with delicate inserts of lace is lovely.

I assumed that this type of event would be an event for a hat.

I dont mind her using the parasol as i recall Camilla using them on numerous tours

im not a fan of this dress, its to bland to my taste and it doesnt match Catherine. but on the other hand, it was appropriate for the War Memorial Graveyard event, it was suitable!

She seems to favour slightly high-waisted dresses which is, IMO, a little strange. The addition of a parasol is quite practical in the tropics but I would question whether it was "engagement appropriate".

I adore the parasol; it's so classic and pretty while performing an important function. Parasols have always been popular among British royal women and I'm glad to see Kate carrying on the tradition.

The dress is elegant and appropriate for a very sombre event. Had she worn a bold colour to the cemetery she would've been crucified for disrespecting the dead. She wears a sombre duck egg blue and gets criticised for wearing a boring colour. She can't win. She's obviously choosing very light fabrics given the climate that won't show any embarrassing sweat patches.

Another success IMO. She is dressing elegantly and sensibly given the climate and the nature of her engagements. I don't consider this boring at all.

Better to use the parasol than to faint from the heat!

At least Kate can choose lightweight fabrics and short sleeves; William must really be suffering in those suits.

I think it's a lovely dress that is suitable for the event. I like the pleats of the skirt and the color is nice. Kate looks very lovely.

In later indoor shots, the blue of the dress was more pronounced. The sun washed out the color quite a bit.

It was a nice choice for a memorial and a hospice visit IMO.

I do notice on this tour she has gone with fuller skirts that lend themselves nicely when kneeling down to children.

Not only the sun, but the contrast with the cream parasol and bright sky. When I first saw the pictures I thought her dress was gray!

But on further look, I think the dress was probably the best possible choice for these engagements.

I don't have a problem with the dress and the parasol (I love the touch of elegance that little accessory provides), and it was appropriate for visiting a memorial.

The rest of these dresses are not memorable. I hate to compare her to Diana, but Diana took risks...even in foreign countries. Her clothes were fabulous and memorable and maybe that was because she was memorable without exception. I just see so very little to be excited about.
You are not alone. I often feel like it's the emperors new clothes with the DOC. The insistance on the curtain of hair, and in this case, no hat and a parasol in a graveyard, it just doesn't seem right for a 30 year old married woman.

Okay, will someone please explain to me why people are so insulted that she carried a parasol? Is it some kind of national embarrassment or faux pas? Has it become the epitome of tacky to want to shield your head from the sun now?

Parasols are okay only if HM or Camilla are using them!

September 14, 2012 - Kate in a dress by Beulah London.

I like Kates look today. The color is lovely, the dress fits well and I like the sheer sleeves. Her hair-do is quite nice as well as her make up, she looks quite fresh.

Full view ** Close up ** Hair-do

While visiting the mosque, Kate wore a matching head scarf
