She will figure it out that a looser more comfortable dress, etc will
make her more at ease in her royal duties. She loves to bend down
and talk to children, so a tight short suit skirt would be so uncomfortable.

I think the issue is that most of her "official" clothes aren't made specifically for her and for her engagements. As others have said, she's a very tall young lady wearing skirts that are made for the average woman. Also, I find that clothes over the last few years have been made more "body-conscious". Therefore, until Catherine starts wearing things that have been custom-made for her, she's going to be running into issues of skirt lengths and tight fit. With the recession in Britain, it wouldn't be wise for her to go to designers and have luxurious things tailor-made--unless she wants to wear the same things over and over again. Once she's a full-time working royal and/or with the funds of the Duchy of Cornwall at her disposal, I think she'll dress befitting her station.

Catherine is not a model, she is a lovely woman who is trying to represent her country. Her latest attempt was a miss, IMO. Her too short skirt Gwen she sat down, her inability to pull her legs to one side when sitting down, are early mistakes. Her hair is better, her hat is finally a real hat, she wants to emphasize her waist and legs at all times and that is her fashion emphasis. I am so happy about the earrings but would love more brooches. Like most young wives, confidencece comes after children.

The suit was aprropriate for the ocassion and lovely, she has a wonderful figure so why not short skirts? She isn't showing that mucht and she is young and has a wonderful figure she doesn't need to cover herself! I do love her and the way she dresses although I think it is very British...

Having a different opinion isn't prudish; thinking an above the knee skirt is "too short" is what's prudish. As I've said before other royal ladies where shorter skirts and they look fine. Kate has just brought into their mentality that an above the knee skirt is just fine for royal duties; and dressing like their elderly monarchs isn't what they want.

I feel like Cathrine could help the situation by buying her clothing 1 size larger which would give her an extra inch in the hips and reduce the ride up. Also, let down the hems. You might have to do a facing to do that, but that is really a small task. The biggest problem would be getting the crease out.

Anyway, I am going to stop debating the topic of her skirts length; it is ruining my happiness of her wearing such a fantastic outfit. I haven't seen her look this good in a daytime outfit since Canada. Taking into consideration the height or her heels when she is with the Queen I feel safe in assuming that Catherine doesn't feel the need to not draw attention between the fact that she towers over both the Queen and her future Queen.
Also does anyone want to talk about how great Kate's hair looked?

I do not think that heels or not heels is the factor which might draw the attention from the Queen! The 3 woman have each one her own part of the attention. The Queen of England has the full attention because she is who she is, her surrounding could be naked or dressed as a nun! It does not change the love and the respect of her people!
The Duchess of Cormw has her part of attention because is the wife of the heir and because of all the prehistory we all kmow. The pro-diana and the against-diana continue to scrutine her!
And finally Catherine is the young and the beautiful, and the future!
It is a very well established balance, and is not a pair of heels which may change this balance.

There's an old saying..."play to your audience." That's what Kate is doing. Frankly, I wouldn't wear what she is wearing to the grocery. But that's just me.

The gymnastic stretch pants were clearly worn because she knew she would be doing some exercise - so I'm with her on that - a good choice. The color was too flashy - too 'look at me' in the wrong way. (She doesn't need to do that - and when she does, I wince). I could see black or a nice chocolate brown for the pants. I have no problem with the high heels - I have never understood people's aversion to this kind of pairing. High heels give a very good line to the leg, I think. Very sharp. Red color was the only mis-step imo.

Rather garish outfit. I don't like the pants, the jacket and certainly not the heels.
Now, I understand she wanted to wear something that wouldn't look out of place during the official part (with heels on) and the fun part (playing hockey); however, I'm afraid she failed in both tasks. What I dislike most though is the makeup; it's just too heavy for this sort of event, especially the thick eye-liner and ample amounts of eye-shadow.

Her outfit is really fun. She's there to play a bit of hockey for goodness sake, it's not a state occasion. Vibrant coloured trousers are so in at the moment, a good friend of mine wears a pair of skinny jeans that are bright red and they look amazing. Of course you wouldn't wear them to a job interview, but for light hearted sporting occasions they're absolutely fine.

Some people here need to lighten up.

What do you wear to play field hockey? Prada?
She switched to runners when playing.
