i've always liked that dress and that jacket, so i am glad she recycled them :)

however, she was kind of brave using a skirt when she knew she had to bend over to take care of george, with cameras all around her. i would have opted for trousers myself!

I agree with you 100 percent on this. Same with the yellow dress at the tennis. It simply emphasis the thinness.

I think pants and tennis shoes would have been better, but she looks great!

Oh I think she looked pretty silly with her slip dress and heels but there was certainly nothing immodest about her ensemble merely inappropriate. She would have looked great in smart linen pants and an elegant but casual top, flat shoes and a ponytail.

I think she looked nice nothing over done and lady like. The Queen wouldn't have worn pants. I think people have seen thigh before I would hope no one died of shock.

I don't think Kate's outfit was inappropriate. It's a dress with a blazer...hardly scandalous. Her outfit was no different than what some of the other women were wearing.

As for pants, Kate usually only wears them during sporting or outdoorsy events. Plus since she is the Patron of the Air Cadets, she may have felt pants were a little too casual (and a dress was more fitting) when meeting the cadets.

If she'd worn linen, someone would have said she looked messy due to the wrinkles. Anyway, Kate only wears pants at certain types of outdoor/sporty events.

I thought she looked nice in her heels and dress. She didn't look silly or inappropriate to me.

William isn't super casual either. He isn't in jeans with his sleeves rolled up. He is in a jacket with dress pants. They are there in an official capacity not attending as private citizens. George was the only one that got in a fighter jet. They go up and down airplane steps and get in/out of helicopters in dresses/heels and suits all the time. Kate walked down airplane steps in a gale in NZ holding a squirmy 9 month old George.

Duchess of Cambridge wears a floral-print McQueen dress to cheer on Andy Murray at the Wimbledon final | Daily Mail Online

An expensive and some what surprising choice to me for the tennis today. I expected a tour repeat

I like the dress, lovely summer outfit. But it is expensive for what it is.

I suspect we will see it again soon on a high profile visit or tour to stop any criticism of the cost, it does seem a bit OTT for a visit to watch tennis.

Catherine always repeats every outfit, multiple times. But there has to be a first outing, and it's a lovely dress for the tennis.

I agree. It actually looks like something she may have originally purchased for the India tour and did not wear. It is a lovely summer dress

Beautiful dress. McQueen is rarely a fail.

I do see her sporting a lot of expensive new dresses lately. Which I would do too, but I wonder if it's a smart choice to do that.

How much did people spend on outfits for watching horses at Ascot? She is in the center of the Royal box for one of Britain's most high profile sporting events which is being watched by millions. What did Sophie or Camilla's outfits to Wimbledon cost? It's only Kate that gets a price tag. William's tie could cost £200 but that is never reported.
