Missoni says Kate's garment is not theirs. Kate Middleton Missoni Coat Dress | Styleite

The article is not a reflection of my personal opinion.

It may be photo effect, the the shoes are waaaay off, colorwise.

I think the ensemble today is well-suited to the occasion. Yes, the coat is straight in the front but the lines in the back make it look more modern, as well as the length being slightly shorter than DoC or HM. The daffodils are a bit of needed color. I love seeing how special days are marked by royal ladies with a little accessory which also happens to jazz up an outfit. I also like the grey shoes -- the exact blue of the coat would have been hard to match IMO and black would've been too dark. Overall, well done!

The point it, when Kate's with the Queen at an official royal engagement, it's not all about her. When Kate wears something that people really, really love (like the McQueen dress at the Millies, or the Jesire at the PNG), it dominates the press attention.

This is exactly the kind of coat that's pretty, appropriate and yet ensures (as far as possible) that the visit itself gets the attention it deserves. In short, no-one's going to try and out-dress HMQ during family events for her special year.

I like it! She looks very nice in the color and it's certainly appropriate for the occasion.

I think the shade of blue is wonderful and the heels are fierce. I don't love the coat but its not as bad as some are making it out to be. She definitely looks the best out of the 3 ladies. I do wonder if Kate shouldn't have worn heels, she already towers over them and it is exagerrated in those heels.

I like the outfit, and the shoes are a nice contrast as it's not all the same shade of blue all over her. (the shoes are gray, right???). I know matchy-matchy is kinda fashionable again, but I can't get on board with it!!

I like the coat, and I like that the color of the shoes is not an exact match with it (the shoes look more like a light blue than a gray, to me). Too much of the same shade of blue could result in her ending up looking like a blueberry.

I think this coat is lovely, and apart from looking good, it doesn't give me the cheap-vibe. I also like her hair and shoes!

The style isn't too bad, although I agree that the coat could have had more shape to it. But it does showcase Kate's slim figure and that's a good length. If the back seams were on the front, it would have really looked beautiful. The color, tweed fabric and the braided look on the coat are stunning, but I'd have liked to have seen shoes in a totally different color. They're beautiful, but I don't think the color went very well with the coat. A complementary tone would have looked better.

ETA - I seen more photos of the shoes and they look like a gray suede, but with a blueish tone to them.

my sentiments exactly! love the lines of the coat and I think the shorter hemline adds a youthful quality.

I think the gradation of brooch adornment is worth commenting on btwn the 3 women.
Queen - large diamond daffodil brooch,
Camilla - small diamond leek pin,
Kate - fresh daffodils.

very much a goldilocks quality.

I agree with you, this coat is gorgeous, lovely trim and cut and looks like you want to touch it!
A little too short for me, especially as she has to bend over and accept gifts from children.
Would have been nicer if it was open, showing creamy silk dress underneath.
Love the bluish-grey shoes,very elegant and think they match the coat trim
Nice earrings and hair back a lot of the time.
