Yes liking this blue/white dress. Very neat that they sat together in front of it...I wasn't sure they would do that or not.

The last two outfit are, for me, the best of the tour.

The white dress with broidery-anglaise style detailing whilst leaving Bhutan was beautiful and elegant and the blue and white dress for the Taj Mahal visit is a lovely fit, fresh and crisp in the heat.

I do prefer straight skirts on Catherine, just looks neater to my mind.

The last two outfits are perfect looks.

The McQueen skirt suit is so fresh even if its just white. Its simple yet elegant.

The Naeem Khan dress I love! I wish she wore at least an evening dress from the designer as well on this trip. This dress suits Catherine and I wish she wears more of this fresh, young style. She played it very safe with her pumps but it was boring IMO, she could've worn sandal heels in a blue color or in nude.

I like the style of the white dress (McQueen) and texture but the color is a bit blah. It looks good on her as far as style/fit.

The Taj Mahal dress is one of her better picks.

I agree at last outfits that I really like. The white dress looked lovely and the Taj Mahal one is perfect

The white and blue Naeem Khan dress is Kate's best outfit on the whole tour IMO. The cut is very flattering on her and the colours work well with her complexion and hair colour (and the backdrop!).

She should wear more dresses in this style.

People are entitled to their own opinions. Stop taking it as some personal attack on Kate.

I don't think that's what Pranter was doing - you expressed and opinion, she countered with her own.

Exactly...I was giving my opinion of things. I wasn't 'defending' Kate.

This is perfect, the design reflects the shape of the temple, I'll always remember it as Kate's 'Taj' dress

It's a shame we won't see most of these dresses again...although she is known for recycling...but even she probably has a ton of clothes as it is that already get re-worn.

I don't care much for the white outfit for the departure, neither liked neither disliked it.

However, the blue&white dress at the Taj Mahal is amazing!!! I like the cut, it suits her so much! This type of dresses are Catherine's best friends, she looks divine in them.

I remenber seeing 2 dresses of this type that I loved on her:

Love the blue and white leaf? Flower? dress ...but not the color of the yellow..it's just too bright.

Style is perfect!

I wish she could have worn lower heels. The high heals means that her legs had to be put in a very sharp angle for the photo on the bench. I think it would have been better with lower heels/legs more forward.

The dess? An okay choice, but nothing to remember.

I love the white outfit chose for the departure from Bhutan. Very simple but still elegant. The blue and white dress is OK, but I'm not crazy about it. I think it's definitely appropriate for the occasion.

Was never a massive fan of the McQueen white (asian tour) outfit but it needed out of the closet for another outing albeit brief - i like to see recycling especially when it is expensive couture like McQueen pieces.

I LOVE the final white and blue shift dress for the Taj visit - the shape is typical of working Kate in on her UK engagements - and i love the fact she choose an Indian designer for a visit to one of the most iconic sites. The pattern is lovely and the colour is so striking with the blue and stands out well in the pictures. She looks amazing and a highlight of the whole tour.
