I don't think it jealousy (for some of them maybe), but they have decide they won't ever like what she wears (don't like Kate) no matter what.

Respectfully, I don't think criticising Kate or what she wears equals jealousy.
I like her and usually am a keen follower of her fashion; however, that doesn't mean I must fawn over every single outfit she wears. I dislike this ensemble and stated so. There is a big difference between "haters" and criticism.

It tends to be those who are big fans of other royal ladies who take issue with everything Kate wears. That's where I think jealousy comes into it - Kate gets more press attention than probably all other female royals combined at the moment.

I'm not loving the outfit, but it is appropriate for the event, especially since she was taking part in playing some hockey. I do like the look of the hoodie, red jeans and sneakers better than the heels and blazer look though. It made her look younger, and more carefree.

I dont really care for her outfit, she looks casual, sporty and able to move around while playing hockey. The only downside is why the open hair? She could've easily put it in a bun.

Kate wore a lovely grey dress for the visit to The Prince's Foundation for Children and The Arts at Dulwich Picture Gallery with Prince Charles and Camilla.
I love this dress! It's really elegant with interesting details (the neckline). The shoes and bag go nicely with the look as well.
Now THIS was a fashion win for me.

Oh, I do love the grey dress. Totally makes up for the outfit earlier in the day. Very, very elegant and classy, but simple too.

Maybe, I've seen some criticize Kate and yet praise other royal ladies for wearing similar style, length and colors of outfits and the same heels or other high heels

Beautiful dress, perfection IMO.

I think some people who come to these threads should actually be in fan only Catherine sites. This is a fashion thread people don't have love everything she wears. Everyone has their own tastes; that's the beauty of discussion forum such as these. I really think Catherine is lovely and dresses well but that doesn't mean
I like everything she wears. This is fashion thread; it's totally not that serious a discussion to be so bent out of shape over criticism.

I LOVE the dress! It would've been stunning in a jewel tone color. Just my thought.

I fully agree with you. I have nothing personal against Kate; why should I since I don't even know her? Whatever opinions I have are objective and based on fashion and that alone; critiquing her outfits, makeup, hairstyle etc. doesn't mean I'm jealous or a hater. I have the same attitude that most of posters here have which is to comment on her look, and I never do it in a rude or derogatory manner.

Be that as it may, I liked both of today's looks. Maybe the heels weren't compatible with the sporty jeans and blazer when she first appeared and flats would have looked better, but when she changed into her sweatshirt and sneakers for the hockey session she blended right in with the event. And I liked the red jeans; it was a fun event and other players were wearing bright red shorts so she fit in. Of course, pulling her hair back in a ponytail would have really been more appropriate for the occasion.

The gray outfit is elegant, fresh and chic with nice detail at the neckline, and I like the full skirt. Pulling her hair back would have showcased the neckline better. Here, her hemline looks fine since it's a loose skirt and she'd have ease of movement with bending and sitting, and it wouldn't raise up too high. I like her black clutch and shoes, and am so glad she wore flesh-toned hosiery instead of opaque tights (that's if she was wearing hosiery at all). A great look today; she seems to favor gray, though, and I want to see her more in bright jewel tones.

Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, joins British Olympic team for game of hockey | Mail Online


See, I thought Charlene looked odd playing volleyball in that over-sized coat.
No you're not alone - I thought it was great. Colourful and suitable for the occasion. Really pleased that she met up with the hockey teams because over herre it is a minority sport that gets little recognition and struggles for sponsorship.

She looked great here throughout the event. I like her red jeans, but damn is it hard to find really nice ones.

I love the grey dress, the black flower application saves it from being boring. Too bad the hair almost covers everything up, a bun would have been much nicer!

Very elegant! As a matter of fact I think it is one of my favourites so far.

The dress is attractive (reminds me of the green one she has); however, I'd prefer a different color.
I'm not a huge fan of gray, although both Kate and Sophie seem to love it.
