surprised Kate wore such a similar outfit to last year - but maybe this is going to be her Ascot thing. (I still keep waiting for the potato chip hat from Zara's wedding to make a reappearance - I figure Ascot is the only shot at a reappearance - but I digress)

I do like this years white lace Ascot ensemble (I guess that is going to be a thing now) - but I especially love the detail on the hat - the flowers creeping over with the contrast to her brunette hair - a very elegant look.

It is nice such a strong family presence today - the queen has all of her children and 5/8 grandchildren.

A beautiful dress but I felt like I had a bit of dèja vu. It's so similar to a dress she wore before

I completely agree. She looks wonderful but the dress looks too much like the one that she wore last year.

I think that they're HM's pearl and diamond earrings that were gifts from Bahrain.

I like this dress though she wore a similar white lace dress last year (longer with a peplum skirt).

I did think at first glance that it was the dress from last year. I like the shorter version, but like others it's a sense of deja vu. Something different would have been nice.

Here's the 2016 Lace White Dolce and Gabbanna outfit: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com...bb99913dcd.jpg

I like both versions but don't get the need to buy 2 so similar very expensive outfits.

I agree the tops look the same could it be the same dress remade if not what a waste of money

I do prefer the 2017 white lace dress too. It has the perfect ''puffiness'' (for lack of a better word) of the skirt. Not too flat, not too big. Plus her breasts sit better in this dress. It simply has a better fit.

However, a hairnet?

This is one of my all time favourite looks on Catherine. Head to toe perfection. When she nails it, she's absolutely stunning.

...for most people, perhaps; for me, sure; but for Catherine - she has enough occaisions and opportunities to wear as many lace dresses (white, black, and every other color) and blue coats as she likes. As long as she is a working princess - she can always use one more.

In my world, I equate it to my extensive collection of black shoes - to my boyfriend, he cant understand the need - but to me... they all serve a different purpose and occaision.

The 2017 one is the better of the 2 for sure. It is more flattering.
