Parting Hair

Not everyone can change the part in her hair. My hair will not part anywhere but dead center on my head; after a while it begins to work its way back. Catherine is a beautiful woman with lovely hair; that center part frames her face in a symmetrical fashion.

Catherine looked great today and I liked how she had red accessories as a nod to the Polish flag.

I am no fan of the middle parting but the choice of suit is great!

I've been wondering why the Duchess has looked more like Pippa lately, then I clicked, she's been parting her hair in the middle. And I see people before me have also noticed by the postings above. I like it. Her face looks slightly rounder too though that may be an optical illusion.

Nothing exciting, her usual style. But she looks lovely.

I prefer her Wimbledon look. Again nothing new in style but the lovely summer pattern gives it a new flavour.

Garnets tend to have a slightly darker, more brown hue to them. To me, these are very much rubies.

Erdem today, and midi-length!
She looks nice but I can't quite warm to Erdem; just something about the designs that I don't care for.

Another floral print, too. Well, it's seasonal, but this one reminds me of wallpaper.

Why should she change?

I thought perhaps she chose that dress because it would work at a variety of events, like the street market, the Shakespeare play, the shipyard, etc.

In my opinion wearing florals to a former concentration camp isnt very appropriate. Darker colours or all white wouldve been a better choice.

I'm very surprised she wore a floral print to the Concentration Camp. Not that I don't like it; I very much like the two pieces as a fresh variation on one of Catherine's preferred silhouettes. And I think the floral is pretty enough without being highly multicolor.

I just had assumed she would wear a solid to this venue. A sedate solid for a somber visit. Not funeral sedate, but sedate. So I just am very surprised.

It is a slight improvement over the bright pink she wore to the 9/11 memorial but that is all.

She needs to learn that when visiting sombre places like this she needs to wear more muted colours - even if she has to change later - or she could have worn an appropriate coloured summer coat over this dress and then taken the coat off for later engagements.

She can't claim being 'young' anymore as she is in her mid-30s and is old enough to know better so I can only assume she is uneducated about the events of these places or is rather stupid. I will never blame her advisers for clothes choice as that is her decision and hers alone. Given the behaviour I have seen, firsthand, at places like this of German, French and British teenagers I am leaning towards the 'don't care' attitude (the German kids taking selfies in front of the overs at Dachau and the French playing 'football' with the wreaths at Theipval - while their teachers took photos and laughed - says it all for me about what the young people in Europe are being taught about respecting what these places mean). I won't go into what the British kids were doing at the German war cemetery in Belgium while their teachers stood by smoking at the buses.

There was a woman there in a pink jacket. I presume you think that's not suitable either.

From the experiences I have been able to hear of from others that have been to visit the sites of concentration camps from WWII, I don't think what Kate wore makes a bit of difference. As they explore the area and visit the different exhibits, what is going to happen is that they will be hit full in the face with the atrocities and the horrors and the full extent of man's inhumanity to man that these camps are stark reminders of. Then, with meeting with survivors, and listening to their stories and recollections, one can only hope that they leave with a firm conviction to work so that something like this never, ever happens again.

On the other hand, wearing a somewhat cheery, floral outfit would probably make a world of difference in meeting the survivors. They've had enough drab, gloomy and somber memories to live with and a cheerful looking Kate just may make their day.
