Are we looking at the same pictures? Kate's wearing a conservative dress in a very subdued colour. Her dress didn't have a deep v-neck that you were complaining about and she left the wedges that so offended you yesterday in her suitcase. What did you want her to wear?

I fail to see how anyone could take issue with a woman carrying a small, simple parasol to protect themselves from the strength of the sun in an incredibly hot and humid climate to which they are not accustomed. There is very little in the way of shade or cover in the cemetery. Would you have preferred that Kate fainted in the middle of viewing the graves? Or not viewed the graves at all and stayed under cover in her air-conditioned car perhaps?

I've seen some incredible posts on this forum, but to criticise someone for holding a parasol really takes the biscuit.

As the visit to Malaysia is to another monarchy,
discussion of the visit is in the appropriate thread in the
Royal Families of Malaysia
subforum.

I also wonder if someone gave her the parasol and she used it because it was a gift.

Lovely pictures, PrincessDianafan, thanks so much for sharing them with us.

It would seem on the parasol issue, that some would prefer that she wore a big sun hat to protect herself. The difficulty with those big hats is that it makes the face of the person wearing them difficult for others to see. Kate and William are on tour and want the people who have made the effort to come out and see them to be able to get a good view and some pictures etc. The parasol protected Kate from the sun and allowed everyone to get a good look at her. The perfect choice.

i get the impression the closer pictures have kind of ruined the day for them. they are not quite as cheerful as at the start of the trip.
hopefully tomorrow things will be better...

Gee, you think? If some paparazzi pervert got pictures of me while I was on a private estate, alone with my husband, doing nothing more scandalous than sunbathing topless, I'd be a little miffed too.

Technically, I think they are still in Malaysia .....but these are great pictures. Kate looks so amazing in that first picture. Hard to imagine she is going through the drama she is. Wow!
