Yes it's a Mcqueen coat. See on the VOGUE UK with shorts sleeves. I absolutly love the coat and the brooch (is it the right spelling?), the Irish symbol. Great class.

I think I could easily see Charlene wear the same outfit. Both like simple outfits without too much fuss and colour. Love the clutch (it's Mc Queen as well without the dead head witch is on every clutch).

Love love every details of the new outfit.

I' m happy because I hated so much the blue embroiled coat she wore at Prince Philip Birthday Mass.

Hmmmm.... I'm not sure if I like this or not. I may have to give it some time to grow on me, but I don't off the bat love it. Although regardless of how I feel about the outfit it is very flattering on her and she looks fantastic in it.

Edit- according to the Kate Middleton style blog the brooch was the Queen Mums and Princess Anne gave it to Kate for today-

Kate’s Shamrock Brooch:
The gold and emerald shamrock brooch worn by Kate used to belong to the late Queen Mother. It was handed to Kate specially for today by the Princess Royal, the previous colonel to the regiment. (Thanks to @TheRoyalEditor for the information.)

Great outfit! Is it a coat or a dress?
Military style outfit for a military event: I like it!
She's very thin but I think that it goes well with this kind of dress/coat.

I"m only seeing gold. Any good close picture with only the brooch?

I love the choice of clothing, but with a dark reed shoe would've make a better ensemble.

Considering that before handing down the medals, William and Catherine met with widow of soldiers the dark navy blue of the coat is perfect selection.

Nice outfit, she looks good in navy. Looks like Kate got a charm bracelet, hope to see her add charms as she fills out her duties and travels!

I like the military style, very british, looks great. I have to say that Kate looks very masculine and almost haggard, defo older than her age.

I love the Duchess style. She's always well turned out. She & William look great.

Wow, she looks amazing in the tailored coat. Incredible. I admire her discipline in staying very slim. But, am I going out on a limb to say that a bit less glamour might have been more appropriate for soldiers coming back from war? She looks practically giddy in some of the photos. As I'm not a veteran, I don't know but perhaps looking a little more stoic might have worked better?

I like this coat, color and cut, suitable for the occasion. Nice accessories. This brooch is lovely addition.

I'm thinking a lovely smile and chat may work much better for young men coming back from service than stoicism. I think she looks very lovely and love the way she relates to children. Having something to say to each person is quite a task.

Most soldiers coming back from war are absolutely thrilled to be home and be reunited with their families. It's a joyous, gleeful occasion for them, and I'm sure they liked being greeted with smiles and welcomes.

I'm also sure the atmosphere was more supportive and somber when they met privately with the families of soldiers killed in action. We just won't see those photos, which is as it should be.

I love this coatdress and used to own one very similar, except that the buttons were navy, too. It was quite versatile. Since the gold buttons make it look very military, if she wants to recycle it, she might consider replacing the buttons.

The little hat is terrific.

That military outfit was great and appropriate for the ocasion.
But I think bigger hats suit her more than those little ones AND I would have added a piece with some colour - like red shoes or a red clutch or something like that.
