I don't much care for the dress, although I like the color.

However, I think Kate would have looked out of place in jeans when most of the women present were wearing (designer) dresses. (One commented that her dress had been made by Alice Temperley).

Also, the event had lots of celebrities, it's not like she was going to stand around in a muddy field all alone. Kate often wears jeans, so obviously she did not think them appropriate for what was really an afternoon party.

Right.
I've noticed that in these poloi games, people of a certain social circle, are always dressed-up, never casually. (Remember also the film Pretty woman, and how Julia Roberts is dressed, silk dress and hat)
So it is normal for Kate to choose this outfit. We may like or not like this particular dress, but the style was appropriate. Choosing to wear jeans and wellies, it had been very wrong.

Am I missing a trick here, or if you wear something with sleeves, it must be cold enough to wear a jumper?

Good point! I actually feel less stable in wedges than normal high heels, not sure why. Could just be that I don't really like wedges, although the navy ones Kate has worn from Zara with the peep toe are pretty nice.

I'm like you, I can stay with 10cm stilettos, but wedges, after 6 cm I badly fall.
I think it is because wedges have a compacted volume, and they do not absorve shoks!

I'm always imperssed by the height of heels Kate is wearing, especially as she is so tall, she does not need them so high.

But tastes are tastes.

Catherine is wearing Emilia Wickstead for today's lunch.

UPDATE: wearing a pink alice coat dress.

Catherine's dress is made to measure and cost £1,300.

I look at her heels high and most of them where 4.5" and some where shorter which surprised me. The only that was taller was the black pump she wore which was 5" (I don't know about the LKBennet). Those heels range are about the same height that the other Princess wear.



Kate and Charlene

I actually twisted my ankle on ballet flats. Beat that.
Wedges are easier to walk in when on grass. I haate it when I wear heels and they sink down into the grass.


I'm so curious to see the pink dress. Looks like both women decided on pastels.

This is fairly typical princess 'uniform'. When you're attending a celebration lunch for your grandmother in law, joined by monarchs from around the world (including the very conservative Middle East), choosing something simple and subdued is the right call.

I agree, Catherine looks very much in Princess attire. Some pearls or a brooch would have been a nice addition though.

I don't think she owns any pearls or many brooches in all honesty. She was given a diamond polar bear brooch in Canada, but not sure how appropriate that would've been.

Kate is not the star today, and her choice of attire suggests she very much understands that.

Once again, Catherine looks fabulous. She understands some important rules:

1.) Less is always more
2.) Her husband is the heir to the heir ... you don't dress like you're the #1 person in the room (or the realm, for that matter)
3.) It's not necessary to compete with the Queen ... dress for who you are!

I can't tell because of the watermark.... But is there Something on Kate's right shoulder that may look like a brooch?
