One thing that has puzzled me is that evening wear can be *anything* you wear in the evening? This does not strike me as evening wear, given that, this is a very nice dress coat and hat. Catherine looks really great in this color from what I see here. I like the cut of the outfit and it seems to fit very well on her. I like that she is wearing her hair up a bit more these days also. And a beautiful hat perched on her head makes a perfect outfit for the day/evening.
One thing, suede shoes in the summer, a nice patent leather would of looked better IMO.

Is this not the suit she wore to Charlotte's christening?

yes - the coatdress is from charlottes christening, the hat is from trooping the colour 2015 and the pearl brooch is from trooping the colour 2014.

this must have been a difficult event to dress for - on the cusp of evening: to 'day' or not to 'day'. white and pearls are always appropriate

It suits the event and Catherine, it's not spectacular but it doesn't need to be.

Again, love the chignon.

Kate looks lovely.
Very appropriate for the occasion. The white really shows up the poppy.

Exactly. Very elegant, fully finished, pretty and respectful. Great choice of new combination of repeats as well.

Catherine's outfit was beautiful at Charlotte's christening and is beautiful now. Perfect for the occasion.

Isn't that what the poppy is for?

I think it is high time we all used our common sense and posted events with daywear such as this in the correct thread just as I can't get over the absurdity of posting afternoon-evening weddings with tiaras and evening gowns in the daywear thread. It just daft!

Difficult as it might appear, I am sure you will eventually get over the upset!

For most, the presence of the poppies achieve that objective. What might you be expecting?

It would be rather inappropriate to be bedazzled in jewelry at this type of event...understated is a good way to go.
