I like the hat as well. It's warm and suitable for church. HM and other royal ladies have been seen in them for winter church services for years.

She really can't win with the heels. She was criticized by some for wearing a 'granny heel' at Christmas.

I like the coat but not the fur hat.

I think Pippa looks best.

See now I didn't care for what Pippa was wearing..the color just blended into her whole look...maybe if she'd worn a pop of color.

I thought everyone looked lovely. I especially loved Katherine's hat, really great for a cold day. I would have loved Pippa's choices IF they had been a different color.

Having said that I don't like furs, Kate looked just fine.

That is too cool... Alpaca is like touching a cloud it is so soft and luxurious.

I have a friend who raises them and uses their hair for textiles.

The green coat is very elegant. It's a great color.

Someone got paid fir that

One it is alpaca hair/fibre not fur.

Two all alpaca fibre is green. You are not skinning an animal like a fur coat. Comparing her hat to like say the Indian leather trade where they use cows who died naturally is wrong. Alpacas are sheared like a sheep, and are alive when done. It's done in the spring, so they stay cool in the summer and have wool back by the time winter comes.

I do wonder at what age she will tire of the whole elevated waist look? Because I am bored. Maybe never, the Queen certainly has a silhouette she sticks to like glue.

I like the dress, and it seems this style has become Kate's get-go for events that involve children.

I love the color...but I don't like the weird seam that comes across the arms and down the the bust.

Love the shoes!

Sigh...yet another coat dress that doesn't fit right. Her natural waist is about two inches below where the belt is hitting. It just looks poorly tailored the way it fits her.

Yeah it's inexplicable to me why she (and a few other royals) keep having this issue with clothing when they all have access to good quality tailoring not to mention the means to have it done.
