Drapes or upholstery was the first thought that came to me, as well. Typical look for the Duchess.

Love the French blue a bit floral for my taste but I think it is perfect for the occasion

I loved it. One of my fav coats of the Queen's is that Wedgewood blue number with the white floral embroidery at hem, waist and arms (also on the hat). This coat of Kate's reminded me of that! Blue with white floral is just so romantic and summery.

At first I thought the dress was a bit frumpy, but after having looked at it again I decided that I like it. Blue and white is a fantastic colour combination - one you can't go wrong with IMO - and Catherine herself looks great. I'm not so sure about her hat though, it reminds me a little of a flying saucer.

I like the coat, dress but loathe the hat - I think it looks silly especially at that angle.

Love the coat, I dislike fascinators on most people especially ones that looked "plonked".

I like the blue background color of her coat dress however, the floral looks like something the Queen would wear under a solid color coat. Her hat looks like she is wearing a certain American brand of thick white paper plates on her head.

I really dislike the hat - it's perched at a ridiculous angle. I'm not a fan of the print or the fabric of the dress, but she looks okay.

Have to agree with you regarding the hat and paper plates. The color looked very good on her today.

The only think I liked is her hat which I know many people hated. The coat looks like recycled curtains. The buttons are too big and the collar shape is not attractive. An almost total fail for me.

I agree unattractive outfit and hat, her hair was the only thing that looked good; Camilla looked much better.

I'm not a fan of the hat but I never like huge hats. Camilla's was even worse.
To me they just look scream look at me and with so many people close together it looked comical

Well, Kate's dress/coat yesterday was truly awful.... That "granny's curtain" print did nothing for her but making her look like a matron... The rest was fine.

June 14: Catherine rocking casual wear whilst watching William play in a polo match in Tetbury with her son George:

Full view ~ Close up

The top is by Me+Em and the shoes are from Sebago.

Well, she certainly doesn't look matronly here!

The outfit for Tooping was okay. I thought the color and style were nice, but didn't care for the flower print. As others have said, it looked liked upholstery. I did like the hat, but thought the placement was a little awkward. All in all, this was my least favorite Trooping outfit.

I love her Polo outfit. I've said it before, but Kate looks great when she's dressed down.

Catherine looks great pin her casual outfit. I love the top. She's one of those lucky enough to be able to pull off wearing stripes.

The outfit was lovely,the only part I didn't like was the hat which looked a bit silly!
