This has to be one of her ugliest outfits ever. The coat doesn't match with her hair and the dress at all. She would have looked much better with a simple, elegant shawl or as others suggested, a warmer dress.

This is such a pity because her white lace dress is really pretty and I'm sure she looked great in it. Too bad she hid it under the ugly jacket who doesn't match anything she wore at that night.

I love the color of the jacket, even the style is nice. Doesn't go with the dress (what I can see of it)...but I'm guessing she went with wanting to be warm as opposed to any attempt to hide anything being speculated about. Besides we all know due to her past illnesses associated with this condition, it can't be hidden very long. We'll know about it before it's even visible.

I really do not understand this outfit. A hidden lace dress and a jacket. Of course it might be chilly outside, but in this case, the red jacket could be accepted with something else inside. Both items are non matching. Catherine is a woman which appears with a strapless gown in December, or 3/4 sleep sleeves in February even for a while, it is cold.

It was chilly outside and she probably picked up a jacket at the last minute.
I think she looked totally fine.

Curious choice; lace sleeves protruding from the coat and all; very mixed effect.

I think a faux fur white stole would have been lovely.

I think so too; def looked last minute adjustment. would love to see pictures from the reception and see the full dress. Then she probably expected to just use the shawl during the show and it was too cold.

I'm sure it'll look good with another outfit, but it's not for this one.

I like the jacket, alot. I like the dress. I don't like it together. It's not "offensively bad" per se, just doesn't look pulled together enough :) Oh well, if this is the worst she does she has pretty high standards!!

I think no on will choose a last minute jacket for this event...the red coat doesn't match the whole outfit indeed but it is a very brillant coat because of the colour...but it is very uggly with that kind of dress...

After watching the video of the celebration, which I highly recommend, it seems pretty obvious to me that she was going for a nod to the Windsor suits that her husband and bil wearing

I agree with some that the jacket was a nod to the Windsor's but I disagree it was last minute. It was a good nod to them and since it was an outdoor event, the jacket seems to be one of the first to be chosen for such an event to stay warm.

Unfortunately it was not the right choice for that dress.

Catherine is in red and white.
Camilla is in cream.

This is the month of May and Camilla is now wearing her spring clothes. They are nearly all cream colored. (She does not have much color section in her clothes.)
