I love Catherine's coat. It suits her well. I'm not so sure about the hat however, I'm still trying to work out what those decorations are on the back of it!

***
Catherine's outfit for the ANZAC Day Dawn Service. It looks nice and warm, but there's something about the coat that I'm not too keen on:

Apologies for any reposts, and the quality of the photos.

Here's a sea of ladies' hats at the Kentucky Derby in the U.S.

Don't like the coat, and hat is awful.
Favorite outfit of the tour- Mcqueen pink dress.

Catherine is really beginning to look tired, it's a good thing the tour is winding up.

The hat spoilt a bit to me.... Even if I am not a fan of the tweed the dress was simple and looked lovely on her... The hat er seemed to be worn upside down and those "hornes" made her look like Snowhite's witch :-D No offence

She looked absolutely divine. I loved the whole look including the hat but then again, I just love those hats. If I could wear them more often, I would.

This last outfit was very good. I like it a lot. But my favorite of the tour remains being the white dress with blue flowers :)

But overall, I think this trip had very good outfits :) Kate was always very beautiful, elegant and suitable in different occasions! Well Done :)

PS: For all of us hanging out for a brooch . . . she is wearing one and it is not small.

Unfortunately it is mostly obscured by her hair.

I loved the hat and the coat, the complementary brooch color made the outfit. She was not the center of attention at Anzac day and she and William looked very dignified and proper as they should.

Thanks, but those are mostly just church-lady type hats. I'm looking for the fascinator crowd!

Hmm, I don't think fascinators are worn as much in the U.S. as they are over the pond.....

So you're telling me if I want to look ridiculous wearing one, I've got to go to the UK? I actually look ridiculous in most hats, cuz I've got a big head and big hair, too!

I think you'd find fascinators here in the U.S.; I'll bet most specialty millinery shops and boutiques sell them. I'm not a fan of fascinators myself; I like the garden-variety type of chapeau personally.

The hat she wore on the last day was hideous, the two things sticking out of the back could go for a costume party hat IMO. I loved the coat, it was very pretty and very elegant. The color, fabric and cut worked very well for her.

I absolutely love the tweed coat-dress (and the idea of a coat-dress). Catherine looks elegant in it. I'm not crazy about the small hat, but it doesn't bother me all that much. After a few photos, one gets used to it.

I have seen them in smaller shops and boutiques here but not in the larger stores.
