Thank you for the video. Always a pleasure to see the royals interacting on film as it tells more about the event than still photos.

There is a lot of passion in her letter and I'm sure her charities appreciate the work she do on their behalf.

That's an amazing dress, but she just needs a diamond necklace or saphire necklace or some other necklaces, the dress just screams for a necklace!

Kate does seem to be minimalistic when it comes to wearing jewelry and perhaps that is just her choice. She does have some beautiful pieces though.

Sometime I wonder if perhaps that sometimes when she is attending a function such as the Hedge Funds one she just did, she consciously chooses to leave the bling behind. Most of the other women in that room most likely do not have the means of owning such pieces and Kate feels that wearing something totally glittering and dripping "posh" would serve to create a status line between the other attendees and herself.

I'm sure there will be plenty enough occasions in the future such as state dinners where she can glimmer, sparkle and dazzle in an atmosphere were it is to be expected.

Just some random thoughts.

You know I never thought of that, but I bet you are right.

Somehow I doubt the patrons of an event that costs thousands to attend lack the means to buy jewelry. The whole crowd tonight is probably pretty posh.

My worry is that if she doesn't get into the habit of wearing 'serious jewels' soonish.. she NEVER will.. and the spectacular jewelry heritage of the British Royal Family will remain unworn in the vaults...

I pay my taxes, and i expect the Royal women to wear 'what comes with the job' !

Catherine looks terrific but I, too, think the look calls for a necklace. I don't think a necklace would require her to wear her hair up, although it would probably look better with that dress. She is so beautiful she can get away with it though.
