If one has decided that only shorter hair will do for a working princess, then nothing will be satisfactory.
Since I presume she knew this was going to be a more active engagement, IMO she should have had her hair tied back the entire time. Much more professional than the up and down, and quite frankly makes more sense to me.

Of course someone working in a royal capacity does not need to have short hair to be professional. Sophie Wessex, Victoria & Madeleine of Sweden, Stephanie of Luxembourg, Maxima of The Netherlands are just a few royals with long hair who look polished and professional. Cutting several inches off would look much better; not necessarily a short style. Sorry that I was not clear.

Thank you for the clarification. However, my point stands. I would guess by the way she dressed that she knew she would be doing drills with the cadets, so IMO her hair should have been back from the start.

true. I did not see a live video of the whole event, but from the pictures, at least once in the grass and once on the pavement

but besides the pants, a nice outfit. I liked the little bows on her gloves

I hope she doesn't pattern her look after the Swedish royals!

I think the colour of Catherine's jacket is gorgeous and a nice nod to Valentine's Day! (I don't know if that was her intention or not, but it's still a sweet gesture). I like the trousers as an individual item but I don't think they go with the jacket. I'd prefer a black dress or skirt with the jacket but this was quite a practical/hands on event so I understand the reasons as to why Catherine wore trousers instead.

Great double breasted jacket in Valentine's Day red. The longer length almost makes the pants ok. Too tight and thin for her position, imo.

Love her jacket. Beautiful color, well tailored piece.

I was a bit shocked by her hour but only because I saw the first pic first, where it is flying every where. But I realize that was when doing exercise. It looked quite elegant in the next picture when pulled back. A style I would be happy to see repeated.

The pants....well I will focus on the waist up.

.

The ongoing discussion about other royal ladies than the Duchess of Cambridge has been deleted as off-topic! Thank you for your understanding!

Uhm, not sure if the boots work well with the suit and I don't like the skirt. (too teenagish for my tastes) but the jacket is appropriate.

I never liked this suit - the skirt and jacket are totally wrong for each other. And the combination today in flat boots is not great. A fashion miss for Kate

The nappa leather version of those SW Reserve boots would have looked less casual, more put together, I suppose.

I think Kate should retire this one.
But I do think it is a good color for her.

I think the suit is fine, the issue is the boots which ate really not very elegant. If she had worn normal court shoes, the whole look, IMO, would have been far more elegant.
