Princess Mary of Denmark wore a large saphirre brooch given to her on the occasion of her first born's christening. The child wasn't interested in the jewelry, as I recall from the video

Beautiful dress, beautiful hat, lovely hairstyle....perfection. I feel like she got the length of the skirt just right for once (usually her skirts are just a bit too short). I really love the cream colour and she looks good in it, but I think a darker shade would have worked better for photos.

Still, she looks glowing and gorgeous and elegant.

I loved the dress but not a big fan of the hat. The dress was perfect and I liked that she stated with a designer she knows makes her look good.

Kate obviously loves this style hat as she wears them frequently but I always think they look like they are falling off.

Ive looked at pictures from the previous christenings you mention and I haven't a clue what you mean. It all looks absolutely fine and not immodest.

I'm not so keen on the hat and at first I wasn't so sure about the frills on her coat, but now I think they're OK. In general, Catherine looks lovely.

The Duchess looks absolutely lovely - a typical Catherine outfit and silhouette for a special event with her trademark style hat. The design is very clever and the ruffle on the jacket reflects the design of the christening gown too !

Really not my fave. Sorry! I do like the color and the style of the outfit, the hair is just awful to me as is the hat.

I think the outfit is very elegant. I wasn't keen on the ruffle in the front, but it grew on me. Catherine looks so very happy.

She looked beautiful! Very elegant!
Absence is, in my opinion, important to find out whether something in your life is meaningful and important! It may be difficult to endure, but the end result is always revealing.

I think it was the perfect choice, chosen to complement George's Christening robe.
They'll make a lovely picture.

I think everyone will, since most of the participants were wearing blue or cream.

Kate looked great but I have never liked the frou frou and at anybody's neck however Kate will be the exception.
I agree on the length which should come down now and has. Fabulous!

I think Kate looked very pretty and elegant. I love the hat and the skirt and I think it's a nice touch that it matches what the baby is wearing. Especially love how she wore her hair.

Not really a fan of ruffles and peplums, but she was glowing and the color was pretty. I'm not crazy about her hat, but it is her style. A very happy occasion!

Catherine is quite slim and not "hippy" therefore she wears the peplum style quite well. I thought she looked lovely. I am looking forward to see the pictures.

IMO Kate looked wonderful at her son's christening, a very Kate look. I like the jacket and skirt, the colour, her hat and her hairstyle (not everything is hanging in front, yay)
Just not a fan of her shoes, but I can't remember if I ever saw her in shoes that I like (don't like platforms).

The McQueen was pure perfection and the hat was OK. Overall she looked very good, despite those LK Bennett pumps I hate...

I loved what Kate wore to the christening. The colour suited her well, and the style of the dress looked great on her. She surely has the body to wear peplum.
Her appearance was elegant, with style and class.

Also loved the hat, those small hats look great on Kate and suit her well.

But what is truth? Not easy to define. We both have truths, are yours the same as mine?
