I was just about to say the same thing Baroness, how is that a faux pas? It wouldn't surprise me if the family buys a stash of wellies in one go for when they're in the country.

I'm surprised they don't wear Hunter wellies, they have a royal warrant from the Queen. (I also own a pair and can highly recommend them!).

Maybe a coincidence or maybe not but I guess a muddy field required those shoes that they just happen to have a pair of?

Well pretty much everyone in the countryside has at least one pair of wellies, and most are green, so I would think it was not unusul that Kate and Harry would too,

Harry's a "Royal Lady"?

Yes, I'm laughing too - and I think that's why this story garnered so much press attention. Lady Harry...

Just to demonstrate how schizophrenic the Daily Mail is, having accused Kate of a fashion faux pas just yesterday for wearing the same wellies as Prince Harry, today they state she hasn't put a foot wrong in the fashion stakes this year:

This is one of my favorite casual looks on Kate and I love the hat!

Her outfit is okay and appropriate for the event. She looks very skinny in the jeans, though. I mean, she surely has great legs that look good in tight jeans, but she's really very very skinny it seems and I thought she had finally gained a bit more weight in the last weeks.

I have not the slightest problem with Harry and Kate wearing the same wellies - how silly articles can get... They really run out of ideas, don't they?

I think the writer has forgotten about unisex boots/items. Who cares if they are in same or similar boots. Such boots can't be so much different for women and men. Anything just to write an article.

Really love this look on Catherine, especially the hat. She has the legs of an athlete/dancer, lots of muscle there. She really is a cutie.

Yep, just smack her down on one hand and raise her up with the other. Just a tad inconsistent.

I'm sorry, but there's no reason to pay such amount of money for rubber rain boots. I haven't bought a pair of this type of boots because I find them absolutely hideous (though may need to out of necessity). A relatively decently priced pair from Macy*s will do fine for me.

Not for me . I'm sorry, but they are just rather ugly.

Wellies are pretty standard wear in the English countryside. They last for years and do not go out of style.

I like wellies myself and got a pair from L.L. Bean last year with boot warmers after getting tired of having moisture leak into my winter boots while shoveling snow. Of course, they're not leather-lined, but they serve the purpose without the expense. And if I ever make it to England to walk across the Yorkshire moors and Lake District, I'll certainly need my wellies!

I'm not sure if this is the right thread for this, so forgive me, mods.

I was looking at pics of Catherine when she was food shopping in Wales right after the wedding. Her hair was pin straight, and not waved at the ends. I liked that look on her and I would like to see her at an event with that kind of hair. Maybe a daytime would do.

Of course, the press would go nuts if the Duchess shows up with straight hair and not the waves
