Well, could be personal taste + the Queen being brought up that women wear skirts and dresses. I myself am an anomali in my generation because I can barely stand any pants that are not sweatpants, and go year around in my skirts :P So it could be personal preference + Kate has not worked in any buissness kind of enviroment which is the place women usually are introduced to slacks since most younger women wear jeans or shorts etc.

If you don't believe me,there is nothing that I can say apart from she's had her moment along with a lot of other royals.

The difference between the DoC and the other Royal women is that Kate has had more than her "moment". No one would comment or care that that much if it was something that had happened once or twice.

But none of the other Royal females on your list have had these kinds of multiple public embarrassments. And it's true that with the exception of the late Princess of Wales none of the others have been as relentlessly watched by photogs, the very realization that she IS so closely scrutinized would make most people more careful, jmo.

You don't even see the women on staff such as Rebecca Deacon wearing dress slacks.

Also the NZ lady who knitted the shawl for George had a face to face meeting with the Cambridges when in NZ. She said the details were she had to wear a dress.

It's seems like there is some of edict against dress pants.

Catherine has been careful and she carries herself with a great deal of class as a senior member of the royal family. Again, she will have those tough wardrobe moments. That's just life. What's classless is the media printing those pictures and people online feeding the media's interest in capturing such photos.

The only one I can find is a little flip up at front of her dress.
Anyway I'm not bothered about trying to find what your referring too
As I have said before if she wasn't holding her dress down and flipping her hair out of her face I'm sure she could relax and do her job JMO

I believe part of it may be the long courtship. Just an idea.

H.M was photographed once in trousers after surgery and then a private photograph from Brittiania turned up from I believe the 1970's of her also wearing trousers. The latter was so curious The very well respected Times ran it as a front page cover.

What did surprise me and has done in the past is that more has not been made by certain sections of the media for DOC wearing non-British designers. Just an observation.

The color of the coat was great! I've always liked cobalt blue/electic blue.. and all the bright shades of blue...The line is very elegant... maybe too much for a sport event! I also think that she shouldn't have bought another new coat... She has plenty of them! If she wanted to sport the color of the rugby team, why not wearing her Armani red coat? That is really beautiful. Still not liking her hair.

Exactly! She mostly wear British designs, rather more than alot of princesses wear their contrymens designs. I see no problem with her not dressing all day every day in brittish designs.

I don't think she could have worn Red because it would have been seen as her rooting on England, and her husband is patron of the Welsh team.

I thought I read somewhere that red and blue were the colors... I must have been mistaken...

The colors of the Wales and England teams are the colors of their flags - the St George's Cross and The Red Dragon.

The uniforms the English wore the other day where the away uniforms, home uniforms are all white, Wales wears a red shirt with white accents and white shorts at home and black with red and gold away.

Actually, scrolling through Getty - I did see one of the Queen's oops wind moments captured by the press - back in the days when she wore stylish full skirts in warm climes.

We have (and I would guess will continue) to see Kate on vacation in swimsuits, so much of the exposure is old news. But it clearly irritates a lot of RF members.

I'm suggesting sports compression shorts for Kate. You know - the sort female players wear under field hockey or cheerleader skirts? She could coordinate the color the same way the queen coordinates her umbrella with outfits.
Either that or buy large rubber bands and use them around the hem when stepping out into a wind. She could keep several in the glove box for unexpected gusts.

Actually I think there's been a couple times that it appears she has worn them or something like them under her dresses...we've seen them because well the wind blew the skirts around.

I don't believe Kate has many of those moments now.
Really, I feel too much has been made of that slit in the dress. It didn't show more leg than Letizia did in that flapper dress she donned recently in Miami.

I can't recall any Royal lady who hasn't had a wardrobe malfunction at some point.

As for Kate having more embarrassing moments than other Royals, I think it is due to the fact that she is photographed so much more! The cameras never stop ( and the press is hoping to find something-anything- to create a controversy).

Ah, might be! I just assumed that the Welsh and English teams had different colours.. But I know nothing of rugby so you might be right :)
