She was also at William and Harry's polo match this afternoon. She wore basically the same outfit, she just changed into a different jacket.

I really like both of her outfits today. She does casual very well.

I also don't see the big deal about the price of her shoes. She seems to wear them quite often, so it's best to buy high quality so that they last longer.

I think Catherine does casual wear very well. I like both outfits; they're appropriate and comfortable. The price of the shoes doesn't bother me. When it comes to the comfort of one's feet, no price is too great, because if you get cheap shoes that hurt your feet, you'll be spending even more money, trying to find good shoes for a cheap price.

No royal looks as good as Kate in casual/leisure wear - would that she had adopted this neater hairstyle yesterday for the Trooping of the Colour.

Terrible Trooping outfit. The hat could have worked if it was on correctly. The dress color did not suit her. Love shawl collars in general, but not with long hair.

Kate looked ABSOLUTELY exquisite at the Trooping of the Colour. From the brighter shades we have seen her in lately, this soft silver grey was such a bold statement. Loved the design of her dress and the hat was a perfect and complimentary match. In a nutshell, Kate looked stunning.

The Duchess of Cambridge chose cream McQueen for today's Order of the Garter ceremony.
She combined it with cream fascinator, gold clutch and nude heels.

Was this not the outfit that Kate wore to the Trooping last year with a black hat?

It is indeed the outfit from the last year's Trooping the Colour on June 11, 2011.

Scrumptuous! The only issue I have with this outfit being worn to the Garter ceremony is the length of the skirt. I, personally, find above the knee a tad inappropriate for the Garter Service.

Appreciate your point, but its hardly a mini-skirt.

You're welcome, muriel.
I absolutely love this outfit; it has both classic and modern edge to it, and compliments Kate's figure.
I have got no problems with its length either - and I'm a prude when it comes to such important events.

I think she wore the Reiss white peacock dress underneath the McQueen coat to give it that full skirt look (the dress she wore to Epsom Derby last year ). I think she looks just stunning and happy. fabulous hat too!


UPDATED: It’s Another Reiss Dress for Kate at the Epsom Derby + LK Bennett Accessories » What Kate Wore

I agree, the ensemble works very well for Kate, and for the occassions it has been used. Credit to McQueen!

Funny, I loved this outfit at last year's Trooping the Colour. I'm not loving it here. I think the relatively simple lines of Camilla and Sophie's outfits make Kate's look fussy or the proportion is off somehow.. Also, I'm no fan of these quirkily perched hats.

Come now, no need to exaggerate my point It's a beautiful outfit, I'd wear it myself, but for a most noble occasion, I think something at knee length would have been better suited.

Kate looks great! I really like the cream and nude combination.

It's nice but I think the sunny day makes it appear more than it is ... I do like those little hats she must have alot but I don't like fascinators.

Love the hat but for me the skirt is too short & too voluminous.

Last year in the carriage at Trooping the colour i like the double brested nature of the top of the coat dress - seeing it full length this year at the Order of Garter i really dislike the outfit now. I dont like the extra frills at the hips and back which is a feature of McQueen designs (it was an aspect of the bustle that i disliked about Kate's wedding dress) I dont like the length - yes Kate is 30 and can wear shorter outfits than Sophie of Camilla but this i find is short and too voluminous as Duke of Marmalade pointed out. She had to get in and out of a carriage and this i think wouldn't work right for that. I find the silly hat on the top of her head silly - Kate owns too many of these now.
Kate has alot nicer outfits than this - Red Catherine Walker outfit i need to see you appear again. This is expensive and unsuitable and just silly looking. Bad day for the Duchess time to bin this one i think
