I wonder if anybody (including the woman wearing them) even realized what the image on the leggings is from. The Daily Mail is hailing them as a show of patriotism, so I'm thinking no...

Which woman? Are you talking about the women wearing the Monarch butterfly outfits?

ETA, having now read wbenson's post, it seems there is another woman with noteworthy leggings. *off to hunt for woman in controversial leggings*

Who met Prince William wearing beige leggings with an image of The Queen in black with "God Save The Queen" written over the images mouth and eyes.

Oh dear!

Perhaps she thinks they're patriotic!

I much prefer the women in the Monarch butterfly outfits which you can find at about :38 seconds into the video linked in Dman's post.

Okay, okay, I give up! Shoot me now, but the only 'whatever possessed her' I can think of is Catherine and her skinny jeans/jeggings. The others were merely amusing, those are not. If another teenaged relly tells me how great her "thigh gap" is I am going to scream!

Not quite sure what the guy in the background is, not even sure I'd like to know, but he sure is novel.

Can I say that I disliked this dress? Too "old" and baggy for her and IMO it didn't suit her... I haven't seen great dresses so far :-(

Well turns out the 'dress' is a coat..and she had a spring like dress underneath it. I have really liked her style of dressing for this tour...better than previously.

I believe he's supposed to be the Mad Hatter. The little tea party inside had an Alice In Wonderland theme.

He's the Mad Hatter - Alice in Wonderland theme - but scary! The whole thing was a little over the top - theme wise (not content wise). Entrance to the Wonderland; https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Bk-19o1CcAAnzT_.jpg

Thanks AdmirerUS & cinrit

I must confess I've never seen Alice in Wonderland, so the majority of the figures are unknown to me.

So sad ... Catherine has returned to wearing her hair all over her face. Why? She looked so elegant and neat the other day. :(

I do not know who else agrees but he looks very much like his Dad. Especially in the eyes.

The Duke

Wow, that's quite the mad Hatter! Love that picture of Kate with the kids though. The mad Hatter looked to be one of the children dressed up, and I think one of the reasons he looked so intimidating was his disability. He couldn't help it or mean to of course. But I've worked with children like that. And often times when nonverbal children get excited, they look like that, and can be somewhat intimidating.
Yep, they went all out. But, I say when you got a duchess visiting, go big or go home!
William impersonating Stan Laurel - whoever Stan Laurel is was hilarious.

Absolutely. No doubt who dad is.

Another day, another dazzling designer outfit for the Duchess of Cambridge.
But Saturday's $3,000 wool-crepe Allie coat by Turkish-English label Erdem wasn't Prince William's cup of tea.
The Duchess told Hamilton local Evie Hayes, 68, who admired her outfit: 'I like it but William thinks it is a bit bright.'

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were greeted by some of the biggest crowds of their tour to New Zealand today.
More than 15,000 people turned out to greet the royal couple in Cambridge - a town where the entire population is just 18,000.
And while all were dazzled by the Duchess, who was wearing a stunning green Erdem coat, she admitted that her own husband wasn't a fan.

Moderators, if you feel that the first article is more suited to Catherine's fashion thread, then please feel free to move.

George looks like Kate and even her dad. He also has dark eyes like her. The fact that his mom is 5'10 and his dad over 6 ft is probably why he seems so big.
