I like the yellow dress but I was hoping to see a new dress though.

The purple outfit is so pretty! It was so nice of her to dress like the women in Bhutan, but with a nice western touch. The cape is beautiful, look at that print, so pretty!
But I agree it's not her style, she had a bit trouble walking with that skirt, but it's not something negative, but understandable. At the sports, she looked more confortable and having fun. What a great tour!

I love both of the outfits for the first day in Bhutan. The light gold outfit is very appropriate as it matches the light gold of the clothes we sometime see the King and Queen of Bhutan wear.
As for the second outfit.....well, I have always been a fan of capes and the caped top is beautiful and a very unusual style for Catherine to wear. I had hoped she would wear one of the long, Bhutanese skirts and was not disappointed. It is a sort of fusion fashion, cleverly thought out!

I for one am happy she wore an old dress (the gold). There was no need for a completely new wardrobe for the trip. The gold dress (and the dress she wore to board the airplane) were pretty minor. They were just arrival/departure. She wasn't in the gold very long and it would be a shame to have a new dress for such a short entrance.

The first outfit from today, the yellow coat was disappointing. It was dull and I dont like the fact you can see the button stitch from the front view, either have a button or a flap to cover it.

The second outfit, amazing! I loved the colors and the combination of the cape and skirt.

I love the yellow dress. The color and style work for Catherine. The outfit that was chosen for the arrival to Bhutan is a nice nod to the host country. I really love the color of the skirt, but not too crazy about the top.

The yellow dress is very lovely. I love the color.

The top is exquisite but I dislike the skirt.

Second outfit of the day is my favorite. I loved the color and the combination of the cape and skirt. I agree would love to see more purple on Catherine.

I don't like it but I think for the engagement it is appropriate but it is an odd matching of colours Queen Jetsun looks gorgeous

The Queen of Bhutan is gorgeous no matter what she wears. Her husband isn't too bad on the eyes either.

Is there a 'room' here that follows them?

For whatever reason, a female royal can emulate the dress of another country she's visiting quite easily - as Catherine did, for example, by mixing materials and pieces from the host country and her home country, creating an individual, yet tribute-full, outfit.
Oh, I agree! I was just speculating for my own amusement.

William did get funky when he was solo in Japan with a kimono during dinner with the PM. However, other than wearing a military uniform, he can't really go for the traditional dress without it looking totally like dress up time.

I'm not bothered about the arrival outfit - it was fine but similar to things she often wears, although I do like the buttery gold colour - I though the belt slightly "off" maybe because she has quite a high waist.

Loved the outfit paying tribute to Bhutan's traditional dress, particularly the skirt.

I was a bit put out by the pale yellow dress Kate chose for the arrival in Bhutan, but I thought the more traditional dress she sported while meeting the King and Queen looked lovely on her!

The purple skirt is beautiful and so is the cape, somehow I just don't like them together. I think I just don't like the belt on the cape.

I just don't think the cape and skirt went together either, though individually they were fine. Perhaps William could have worn something a bit different to his faithful blue suit, something light coloured and more tropical, similar to the suit Harry took on his tour to the Caribbean. I do think both brothers cling to the same old, same old in suits, and yes, neither wear the kilt, which is a shame.

It's only in the mid 60 degrees F in Thimpu tomorrow and today was super windy so not really tropical Caribbean conditions in Bhutan.

But a light coloured suit would be something different, at least.

I didn't like them together neither. I haven't liked none of the clothes she has worn on this tour to be honest.

Thought it was just me that really didn't like anything much. Nice to know I'm not alone

I liked the outfits on the tour but was thoroughly tired of her attempt at 'indian prints' after the first few. If she wanted to honor India, she should have used Indian designers, not British/American designers using Indian inspiration.

I loved the purple skirt but the cape was a miss. But this is the one place where the real attempt to go native seemed genuine (though the top wasn't) and respecting the fact that all women dress that way there.
