I both like this coat/dress and don't at the same time! Ha. I'm so confused. I love the "formality", and this kind of outfit makes Catherine look so chic. The fascinator, I don't mind would LOVE a proper green hat.

Can't wait for Paris.

beautiful! i wonder if this is what she will wear in paris or whether she will change before landing. it would make sense to wear this in paris - it is elegant and doubles up for both kinds of events.

The coat is fine, the hair not so much.(..)

The advantage to the fascinator is that she is not stuck dealing with any hat head for the rest of the day. I'm over teeny hats too, but there are times where they are just the practical choice.

Maybe it is the positioning To me it looks big on her. Kind of reminds me of her playing dress up with grown up clothes.

I love her in a hat, a real brimmed hat. I love the gray ine at commonwealth last year, looks fantastic. This just doesn't do it.
Funny, l like "real hats" better than fascinators, too, but this hat didn't seem to fit for me either. I think it may be because it didn't match the outfit. The Queen's hats always look nice because they are very well matched to the rest of her ensemble.

The St. Patrick's Day fascinator, OTOH (if that's considered a fascinator) l like. It fits well with the coat dress.

I agree. Does she have another version of this hat in black? Its shape is very familiar.

It looks a lot like her hat from Christmas Day 2015, but when you look at the shape, it seems to be different. The Christmas hat is a bit pointy on the front, this hat is completely round. However, the colour and the flower on the back are the same.

If one takes a look at the photographs the velvet detail on the coat looks black in some and dark green in others. The fascinator also looks different shades of green in different photographs. It is also rather cold and breezy in England right now. Perhaps this type of headpiece is easier to secure with long hair than a more formal hat? Just a thought.

Catherine in Paris wearing the same outfit as earlier but without the facinsator and with open hair.

Full view ** Full view 2


I like the coat and the color, it's a classic coat and the velvet detailing is interesting. I don't care much for the buttons. In Paris, I would've liked to see her hair half pulled back.

Earlier look with the fascinator, it was nice and appropriate for the event.

I dont think she needed to. IMO, she was elegantly and appropriately dressed for both events.

Oh it's perfectly appropriate. I just remember when the Queen made her state visit back in 2014, she changed her outfit 4 times between London and the official meeting with the President.

Even though the outfit was appropriate for both events I'd have expected her to change because it's very different events. There is no need to greet the French president wearing something that has lasted through the day already.

I like the coat, especially the design with the buttons, very elegant.

She's already going to need to wear three different outfits today. Four seems excessive when one was appropriate for both events.

I'm disappointed she didn't change into something more fitting for Paris I was hoping for a show stopper

Her cocktail dress and evening dress (and new jewelry) made up for the lack of change earlier.

I think Catherine's coat was gorgeous and I particularly like the velvet detail on her sleeves and pockets.
