While both the Queen and Duchess of Cornwall were rocking it with some great outfits, imo Kate failed to make much of an impression. I realise fashion isn't what the day was about, but I was hoping for a more summery look - it was lovely weather in the southern part of the UK today - I think she must have been very hot. As for the fascinator....

Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge, looked alright. Her hat is whimsical.

I really like the coat, the color is very pretty on her. Now that thing on her head..........rghhhh do not like at all. Yes these are in fashion, and they still look silly sitting on the edge of her fore head.

The only lady, who elegantly wears a hat on the edge of the forehead is Empress Michiko of Japan ... in my person opinion.

Sorry if I upset you, I am just not a fan of those hats that sit on the very edge of a forehead and cover the eyes, they always look like they are going to fall off! They look very uncomfortable to me and seem a bit like playing dress up in mom's clothes!

I don't mind Catherine's outfit and I do like her little coquettish hats, which she seems to be fond of. But I do agree, Empress Michiko carries off these little hats very beautifully indeed!

No, your post did not upset me at all. This kind of hat is very difficult to pull off. The Duchess of Cambridge seems to favour this style of hats. Sometimes she looks alright in them. Empress Michiko too happens to like this style of hats and does a wonderful job wearing them.

I thought that Kate looked decent enough, the hat is not great but I've seen worse.

Yes I know Temperatures both where she commenced and ended her journey were warm and sunny so I still consider she was very wrapped up.

Yes, but the Queen and Camilla both had on coats over dresses as well.

I think she looked fine; I think she was deliberately playing things down, using a coat she'd worn before with black accessories.
Not too bright, not too eye-catching, so she couldn't be accused of taking attention away from the Queen. Not too somber, because it was a victory celebration.

She did quite well, imo.

Agree I think she looks nice. Not a fan of the hat either but it didn't ruin the whole look.e

Very nice and understated look. Not a big fan of the hat, but it's not awful.

I, myself, liked the hat. I even think she looked prettier with the black accessories than she looked the first time she wore the coat.

When placing a hat at that angle, it needs hair to support it otherwise it has the Michiko effect of a satellite nailed to her forehead. Bottom line . . . the hat needs hair to balance it. When Catherine is first seen, her hair is pulled back at the sides and the rest hangs down her back but, unfortunately the hat appears to stick up almost perpendicular angle in the centre of head. Basically Catherine is wearing her hat like a fascinator and it's too big for that.

As to the colour of the hat, the black is almost lost in a sea of dark brown hair and were it not for the bit sticking up at the back would have hardly have been noticeable.

I agree. I think Kate looked quite nice.

I actually really like her hat, but then I prefer smaller type hat/fascinators.

In France for D-Day70, a repeated coat from the Australasia tour and fascinator.
I love the colour of this coat! Not so crazy about the fascinator though.

I thought Catherine's coat looked familiar. I remember not liking the pockets and top half the first time, but second time round I like it. Not a huge fan of her hat, however. It looks a little awkward and doesn't seem to go with her coat.
