I vote for mulled wine.
How about adding "plum" to that list?

You just hit the nail on the head, and you've been too kind... This hat is so comical and let's not talk about its quality. Reminds me of the hats I've seen during Carnivals in Italy and Cyprus, to be honest. ()
Catherine herself looks pretty though.

Why on earth would Kate pair a cranberry hat and eggplant coat? Not saying she wasn't appropriately attired, but WHY? She looks extremely tired and aging fast.

I actually liked her hat quite a bit- I didn't like that style on her at Remembrance Day at first, but I eventually came around to it, and I liked this one right away. The style looks less severe in that color, and I think it was appropriately festive.

I actually thought this was a pretty successful outing for her, fashion wise

Is it just me or do I get the impression that when it comes to hats, the style of the BRF is a bit too much???
Maybe they got to much Ascot on their mind

But I liked the rest of the Catherine's outfit especially the colour!

I didn't notice any of the women wearing matchy-matchy hats, except, of course, HM. Catherine has decades of wearing HM-like fashion ahead of her, so she will probably continue to mix and match for a bit.

US magazine has called the color both plum and magenta! And KittyAtlanta has used eggplant and cranberry to describe. Who knew there were so many ways to describe what my grandpa would have called 'purple'?

I got your point on the colors but I did not see the cranberry hat and eggplant coat odd together, so I think they complemented each other well even though they are not identical colors. If you notice the hat has the out line color is in between after all I did not see it weird

I like the coat but not the length of it

The hat and coat may not match identically, but they're in the same color palette so I thought they complemented each other well.

I liked the coat as the color and cut flattered her. Not a big fan of the hat though.

I agree, they are not matchy matchy, but in the same tone so I'm thinking they look very nice together and just different enough not to be boring.

I loved the outfit. The coat in particular. It wasn't short (as in the case with some of the women) but showed off her legs nicely and the color was wonderful on the Duchess. The opaque stockings with the shoes were nice as well. And the earrings were lovely.

Casual Catherine, watching her husband play football on Christmas Eve (during the day of course). I like her the look (though I think the boots would have looked better if in a darker color).

Catherine Elizabeth Middleton — Kate watching Will play football on Christmas...

Thank you for the link, Daria. Kate and Harry look like they're wearing the same type of boots; probably wellies for a muddy field maybe. I think that's the appropriate outfit for a casual sporting event; I like the Western hat and jacket, too. She looks very happy and relaxed.

You're welcome. Glad you liked the pictures. I wasn't sure what kind of boots they were, because the images were so blurry. I thought they were leather for some reason . I agree though. Her attire was appropriate for watching a casual game of football on a most likely muddy field. I think she wore that hat before, but I may be wrong.

I've seen Kate wear that hat before as well, so you're correct.

Don't know why the Mail claims Kate committed a fashion faux pas just because she and Harry wore identical boots. Now if they wore identical dresswear to the same event, that might be a reason for raised eyebrows!
