Catherine's choice of red jacket with a white dress, colourwise is a quite stunning choice although her beautiful updo looks a little matronly with the neckline of the jacket. The dress is beautiful but I cannot gauge how it looks on Catherine as almost all of it is hidden from view.

The red jacket is beautiful but it was never designed for an occasion such as this nor to be worn with a lace dress. If just looks decidedly odd and the style is certainly not one that I can imagine paired with that dress.

I agree- I like both pieces individually but the styling is off here. Not her best look.

I think the red jacket isn't a good choice it's very attention grabbing. It should have been a colour that blended in with the others

The Duchess of Cambridge's Eveningwear Part 7: April 2016 -

The red jacket isn't a good choice for this occasion , I don't mind that it is a strong colour but it doesn't work with the dress IMO . It would be lovely to see the dress properly and the jacket teamed with a different outfit. I really like her hairstyle.

I don't usually post about Catherine's outfits, but I just don't get this look - a lacey dress teamed with a car coat - and then to carry a shawl as well, as some photos showed.

If you need a coat and a shawl - wear a warmer dress or a longer coat.

And yes, lots of photos online now, and the "p" word indeed.

I too, think the outfit a fail. The pieces are good, but the sum... As she is just there out of love, it's fine, because it really is all about the Queen.

But I refuse to kvetch about the hair. In general people whine about it being worn down. Now in the evening, she wears it up and there are complaints. Nits IMHO!

I keep trying to think of what p word you both mean and can't come up with it :)

Sorry HRHHermione - "p" = another set of tiny feet on their way.

Trying not to draw a reprimand from anyone about speculation, but several photos of the Duchess standing - taken from several angles - that is the first thought I had.

And I've seen several sites, twitter accounts etc., also thinking the same - pregnant?

Surely if Kate comprehended that it really is all about the Queen, she wouldn't have worn that attention-seeking red coat.

I think it was meant to match the 'attention seeking' jackets of Philip, William and Harry

The boarder beneeth them were red, the men wore red on their suit coats, I think the nit-pick parade seem to have been an unannounced feature in this celebration...
