I really like the dress she wore to sign the condolence book. It was beautiful, interesting and appropriate.

I like the coat dress. Kate wears cream well. The texture, fit and style are nice. I'm really impressed by how often she's putting her hair in up dos these days. She looks good both ways, but I do like the variety.

The fascinator would be fine if it was positioned differently, like on the side. I've yet to see a fascinator that looks good positioned dead center on the forehead sticking up like that. Reminds me of Autumn's turtle one from the thanksgiving service.

I like the brocade coat. The hat should be burned.

while I like the brocade coat in and of itself - I prefer a more noticeable (vivid) color for Garden parties so that she can be seen in a crowd.

Also I was hoping for a reappearance of the potato chip hat at ascot (where it truly belongs) and i don't see her doing back to back beige.

but props to the larger bling earrings .... and of course the clover brooch.

Today's garden party outfit is nice, but I'm not fond of the the hat and I think the color is a little dull. Her hair looked lovely though.

I really liked all of her outfits for the Queen's birthday celebrations. The Trooping outfit was my favorite (the color combo was perfect and the hat and hairstyle looked great).

But the stand out was the red outfit from the Order ceremony. She looked stunning. It's been one of my favorites since she wore it in Canada, so I'm glad she pulled it out of her closet again.

An exquisite and refined coat. I love the color.

Well, no one can say the hat was not taking a bit of a risk.

The coat is a little busy for my taste, but looks perfectly acceptable for the event.

BTW - Mrs. Tindall is also wore whopper citrines. yesterday.

Oh dear: Kate's hat looked more like a cinnamon roll than a rose. lol. That's a pity because I've always liked that cream coat, but paired with an awful hat and very strange earrings it was totally overshadowed imo.

I thought Kate looked nice in the morning, at the embassy for the condolence book, even though I was a bit surprised to see her wear such an informal frock for a solemn "event", if it can be called like that.

I'm not a great fan of lace, too scratchy, and I'm not sure about the length, so I'll pass on her white lace dress, but I love, love, love Kate's hat! It's just an stunning design and the shape and trimming is very elegant.

I think the Queen looked absolutely gorgeous as well. I adore soft colours on her. She wears them so well.

The dress, besides the bottom, is really beautifully done. You can tell D&G are masters at lace. The hat is good too. Much better than that horrible thing she wore last.

Lovely. Might this be the dress she wore to the pageant at Windsor a few weeks ago?

The dress is really pretty when moving. It's a bit meh when she's standing still, but it's so swoopy when it moves!! And the hat is great!

Just stunning. Ascot has its own fashion rules and barometer and Catherine played it beautifully. Smashing debut

I love the hat and at first I didn't mind her dress but then I saw what CP Mary was wearing to Ascot and she nailed it. I think where Catherine misses the mark sometimes is that when you wear one colour from head to toe it can be ageing and when you add to that with longer hemlines and sleeves it makes her look frumpy and older than she is.
