You can google image it and its the same dress.

Kate is supposed to be boring for this event. You have people in fancy capes and giant feathery hats. You can't really bust out the pink cheetah print dress.
Thanks. My mistake.

I agree. The color is very appropriate to the occasion. I am also not a fan of the hat's shape but it does compliment the outfit. This look is timeless and will pass the test of time. In 50 years, people will look at these pictures and say she looks terrific.

This is one of those occasions when she must look polished and perfect and she pulled it off just fine. I like the tailoring of the outfit, it fit her nicely and the color, wonder if the color blue is her favorite? The hat is okay, modern touch, not my style yet perfect for her. A big 10 for her today.

Nobody celebrates their heritage like England, darn how wonderful to see this year after year........love seeing the Queen out and all the troops with her.

This is a very elegant, and 'Catherine' look, which I love. The outfit is tailored to her figure, and is very flattering. The color is great too. Overall, a nice, and appropriate choice.

The coat looks really supple (as in the fabric), and the tailoring is perfect. I don't even mind the heavy eye because it contrasts with the light color of the outfit.

Perfect fit and color and sheen on the coat. Terrible hat

While it is summer and pastels are a winner Catherine seems to choose the watery ice version.

Yesterday's sivler/blue and todays icy blue are neither flattering nor complimentaty colours. They give her no warmth which has the effect of making her makeup look harsher than it actually is. As for her perchers, they are all of a piece and that is boring. She has the same silhouette in almost all her formal wear.

She has been wearing the sapphire earrings a lot lately. I've always liked this outfit and it seems the greeters do too!

I didn't like that dress then, and I still don't like it.

Its a blouse and skirt. The buttons on the skirt reflect the old style buttons that used to be on sailors trousers.

I like it, its appropriate and suits her shape. Cant ask for more.

I guess she has been wearing quite a lot of blue and grey, all of which match the earrings.

I agree with you, am not a fan of this. Perhaps if she wore the skirt separately with a different top or jumper, and the top with jeans, it might work better.

I actually really like this outfit. It's been one of my favorites since the first time she wore it.

I didn't particularly care for the Trooping outfit. I thought the color was pretty, but I didn't like the style. The Garter outfit was lovely though.

Don't like the McQueen Catherine wore at Bletchley Park. Didn't like it the first time she wore it and it hasn't improved during it's stay in her closet.

It's a very busy outfit which most people couldn't get away with, but she can :)

I don't like this outfit. The top reminds me of an army uniform worn during the beginning of Piotr I's rule in Russia.

It's one of those outfits that people can get away with because they seem to match their personality. I would look ridiculous wearing it but it works for her. It's like Queen Maxima's outfits, only she can get away with wearing them.

I was never a fan of that particular outfit, but it's nice to see her recycling her clothes.
