Hopefully, there'll be better pictures soon.
This is a fantastic dress - i love it

I agree, lovely dress and jacket. Very good to see Kate get good use out of her newly acquired "princess gear".

I think the Gvenchy sunglasses Kate has been using are quite old, and I seem to recollect having seen her wear them to Cheltenham in 2007, shortly before William and she split up. Anybody concur?

Kate owns a similar pair of sunglasses that she wore throughout 2007 (before and after the split), including:
- Cheltenham Horse Racing day 1 (with William)
- Cheltenham Horse Races on March 16
- Badminton Horse Trials on May 04

Those are definitely not the same glasses she wore today.
You might mean another pair though.

The sunglasses worn in 2007 are Chanel! The logo is pictured quite clearly. They are definitely not the same ones.

This is a great and very appropriate ensemble. Catherine looks very classy and sophisticated. Blue is definitely one of her colors.

Today Kate is wearing the same trousers and her wedges. Usually Im absolutely agreeing that royals recycle their clothes. But now it is a little bit to much. The same trousers every day? Its becoming boring

I think she is probably trying to keep her clothes as low-key as possible. I'm sure she has more than 1 pair of the trousers/jeans. But the last thing she wants is to pull the focus from the athletes on to her. I would assume she is embarassed by the hugging pictures with William yesterday being so much of the story.

Exactly, I don't think she picks her Olympic wardrobe in order to entertain fashionistas. It should be practical and low key. As nice as it is for the Cambridges and other family members to turn out to support and cheer Team GB, the Games are about the athletes and not about them and they know it.

Maybe she has two pairs of the same pants?

Agree with both of you. The Olympics are about the sports and the athletes, and not the attire of the royals in attendance. I'm glad Catherine is keeping things simple. I think she wants to blend in as much as possible, and I think it's working very, very well in this instance.

I sometimes think she does it very much on purpose, to dress in regular clothing and recycles clothing often...in order to keep the press from focusing on her as they did Diana.

Spot on . It's one of the things that I really like about Catherine; she wants the focus to be on what's going on, and not on her. She does this for her public engagements as well, and I, personally praise her for it. It doesn't mean that the press will recognize her efforts (they'll criticize her for it actually), but the gesture in and of itself says a great deal about the Duchess; she wants to raise awareness of the causes she's supporting, and not her wardrobe, its' designer, price or quality.

ITA Diana made it a point to wear recycles to weddings just for that reason.kate seems to have learned a thing or two.
Must add that I love her in the ponytail.

The outfit is ordinary IMO and yes she maybe dressing lowkey and I guess that this a good thing recycling and so on I as have said cannot stand Stella McCartney so the dress doesn't thrill me the blazer is a navy blazer that's it mine's as nice IMO

I didnt say she should wear more formal or draw attention to her.The press focuses on her clothes even now. I like her look every time,Im just surprised she uses the same clothes every day. Even I dont wear the same clothes every day. A jeans would be nice

I agree. I think there is a very good possibility that she may not be happy about all the attention that the media diverted from the Team GB and ParalympicsGB athlete portraits in July simply because she was wearing a Stella McCartney dress and a Cartier necklace.

Kate looks good when her hair is in a ponytail. I like her sporty outfits and I like her red jacket matched with the polka dot top.

I think she looks so young and beautiful in the sporty outfits with the pony tail. I think that's probably who she really is and how she's the most comfortable.

Yep, being casual seems to be most natural to her.

She looks most at ease in that type of attire, which is understandable, and when one is comfortable, it shows. Her hair looks great in a pony-tail. She looks young and carefree.
