Is Kate going to auction that "hat?" Time to abandon "cute"...she's not a teenager any more.

Like her white dress, but it needed something. Too "blood and bandages."

The afternoon celebrations are over and the couple are off, after greeting the performers and the public

Thank goodness you're in the minority then, as most saw it for what it was. A very nice way to tying in what she was wearing to what the day was. Most think it was a lovely tribute to Canada.

Then again, I shouldn't be surprised some see it as a way to attack Kate. She'll never be able to do anything right in certain peoples eyes. I wish they'd keep their comments to themselves is all. Why such nastiness I'll never know.

She is dressed in the colors of the Canadian flag, appropriate and a nice gesture I say. I think she looks fabulous up to now!

I liked Kate's hat. I thought it was a lovely and fun tribute to today's celebrations.

I thought she looked stunning! She is good at striking a balance between sexy and classy. She sure knows how to put things together. Great way to pay tribute to Canada on Canada Day.

Are your lives so wretched that you either can't keep quiet or want to spoil it for us who are interested.

You folks are like thorns on a rose.
Kitty, as you noted in the thread about Albert and Charlene's wedding...

Agree, lovely gesture on Kate's part. I'm used to seeing various royals in red and white during their visits to Canada and I love all their outfits.

All I want is a pic of William in those Canadian flag glasses. I was wearing the SAME ones as I watching on tv. I jumped up and screamed when he put them on. All that came out of my mouth was " OMG HE'S WEARING MY GLASSES WELL NOT MINE BUT GET WHAT I MEAN HE'S WEARING THE SAME KIND" My mom's face was just priceless

I love Kate's dress, hat, etc... I must say-I usually only post about royal wedding related stuff- but I must say- the "Kate Mania" as the press has deemed it- just keeps growing and growing. I can't stop following it since the wedding. She really is a super star. And the love and chemistry between them just lights up the entire place- where ever they go.

Every outfit is amazing- and she is beautiful. I can't wait until they get to the US

She is the epitome of class and elegance. She is like old Hollywood Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, etc.. She just has that "star quality"

At the risk of running afoul of the censorship police, I didn't care for her day outfit today either. I personally don't like these fascinators that masquerade as hats, which seem to be a big trend among the upper classes in Europe these days, though I do appreciate the maple leaf in her hat. I also appreciated that she wore the Queen Mother's diamond maple leaf broach, but I think it's time the royals got a new one (maybe in rubies so it shows up on white) as we see this piece of jewelry every time the Queen makes a visit to Canada (and now Kate).

I believe it is indeed that dress.

They both look fantastic and I'm so glad that they're getting such a warm welcome in Canada. I love the fact that William made the effort to speak some French as well. Unlike some, he at least took the time to learn a language of one of the commonwealth countries he's going to be King of some day.
