I'm not so sure that HM suggested anything. Catherine's clothes on their tour of Canada were generally longer. However it came about, Catherine looks far more elegant and self possessed in longer skirts. She has the height and the legs, to create a whole new look for herself and fashion statement for everyone else.

On a different note, I liked the cut and colour of her blue coat and royal blue/navy clutch and shoes. I loved her hairstyle. Clean-cut elegance that allowed everyone to admire her earrings and forget the picture of George eating a handful of her hair. Although I must admit I missed her wearing a hat at the laying of the wreath. She didn't seem qute dressed there.

I like the coat and the shoes, the Duchess look very elegant. But I like it more on the Countess of Wessex (maybe because the color, im not really a fan of this kind of blue). On the other hand I love her hair! Its very appropriate and convenient with that weather!

It strikes me that the DoC is leaning to the very elegant/classy style of dress commonly seen in the past..40's thru the 60's. There's a hint of the vintage in what I'm seeing the past couple days during the daytime look. I think it's fantastic!

Ana - That blue was a perfect match for the portrait of the Queen unveiled at the reception in the evening. I always wonder it Kate plans down to that level of detail.

Yes, maybe it was planned to match the portrait. Im sure this visit was planned until the last detail (and I love this)...we will see many interesting details until the end .
Besides its a color trend here in Portugal this season (and maybe in the UK too). But I dont like it very much anyway...its not one of my favorite colours.

The blue color is also near the blue color of Raf uniforms.

But did she see the portrait before the unveiling?

I like the coat but the colour is not my cup of tea. Kuddos for lowering the hems, finally.

I totally agree, and looking back over the last three years one can detect a vintage edge from time to time - the hats and neatly fitted suits are a reminder of that era and the elegant long evening gowns could quite easily have been worn back then. The black dress with silver fern on the shoulder seems straight out of a post-war black and white movie!

I really like the dress she wore at the PlayGroup. I like the cut and the design.

As for the blue outfit, I thought she looked lovely. It's a great color and style. Simply elegant. So far, I am loving all of Catherine's outfits of the tour.

It's quite a boring casual look for me. The jacket doesn't work for me with this look.
It seemed perfect for the races but not while visiting the families at the earlier event.

I like the outfit, the choice of top underneath should have been different but overall she looks okay. One thing I envy is that she can pull of wedges and I can't!

Did Kate wear those wedges onto the sailing boat or did she change into something more appropriate?

Kate normally rocks casual, but this is her typical walk in the park with George attire. I agree she should have raised her game slightly. Out of interest, have we ever seen Kate in any trousers other than skinny jeans( more akin to what Charlene wears)? She would look great in a different style.

Maybe those are her lucky jeans and shirt and she always beats William at Scrabble when she wears them.

I just think that her casual outfit (stripes, blazer and wedges) are just like her uniform for all sporting appearances...
