What's so startlingly revealing about her outfit?

As for her stomach being exposed, how come male royals aren't held to the same standard? I've seen William and Harry's stomach during sporting activities and I don't recall anyone batting an eye.

One of the reporters noted that her participation in the volleyball game (which only lasted about 90 seconds), wasn't planned - it was an impromptu thing. She was there to just meet and talk to the kids involved, so I can see why she didn't wear a body-suit, trainers, different jeans, etc. She even remarked that the next time she comes, she'd be sure to bring her trainers.

No is wasnt a bit of waist line is nothing compared to the cleavage on display by some of the most senior royals of Europe. This is a nonsense statement IMO. y

Thank you!! The way some are going on about this, you'd think one of those ding a ling Kardashians had yet again had another "accidental" Fashion Malfunction. Or that Charlene had worn another questionable ensemble while on duty as Princess Consort of Monaco.

We saw a quick flash of Kate's tummy while playing an unplanned game of Volleyball. Nothing more. No big deal.

And I bet it was really fun for the kids that she jumped in and played with them for a bit and really got involved. We like our royals warm and spontaneous- so why criticize when they act that way?

I agree - people are acting ridiculous

I agree! She looked terrific, but should have worn different shoes

This is just getting ridiculous, you saw a flash of her belly for cryin out loud! You didn't see her butt or breast. I wouldnt be surprised if the people complaining about her stomach also have a problem with her ankle showing. Oh it's so risqué.
Apart from the ridiculous bruha about her stomach, I think the outfit is nice but nothing much. She was clearly going for casual but not too casual.

I hate the skinny jeans, I hate the wedges with them. It's such a cheap look. But Kate herself looks lovely and happy, and her hair is gorgeous. I just wish she would slightly looser pants and lower heels.

What saddens me about all this fuss in the media about Kate's apparent inappropriate outfit ( see the various pics of her exposed flesh) is that she may begin to have second thoughts about joining in with activities or to wear something that makes it impractical to do so if this is the only way such events are reported. The most important aspect of the visit is that she was what she brought to the visit in terms of spontaneity and warmth.

I don't find anything scandalous about this casual outfit. She looked cool, IMO.

It was a sporting charity and scheme she was attending and thus her casual outfit was appropriate. The only thing that was out of place was her wedges - she should have worn flat shoes as im sure she was aware that joining in some activities might happen. Personally I would have preferred to see her hair caught back - since the birth it hasn't quite looked right. Other than a smart causal choice for a young royal

I think it's a case of it looks different to some observers. For post- pregnancy women it can take a while for things to return to how things were before. Sometimes they never do. I have friends who's hair became thinner, duller, even fell out! Just because her body seems to be back to how it was, doesn't mean everything is.

I remember that Sarah Duchess of York had so much trouble with her hair after Princess Eugenie was born she cut more than a foot off of it at the suggestion of her hairdresser. (She reportedly later regretted it.) Most people don't realize that your hair enters a "resting" period when you're pregnant and fewer hairs are shed. After the baby is born, most of the hairs that were supposed to fall out over the several months of the pregnancy start to fall out all at once. It's perfectly natural but can take many women by surprise.

Yes, her hair looks really bad. She needs a much shorter cut.

Can you expound on what you think looks so terrible? I don't get this at all.

I would like to know that as well.

I have noticed a weird tendency in this Forum: if any royal woman has hair longer than the shoulder length, there will be majority voices saying "she needs a cut", "her hair is awful", "her hair is way too long", etc..

What is so wrong with long hair?

I, personally, hope Kate will not cut her hair any shorter as she looks amazing with her long hair.
