Lady Marlboro, I suspect that the coat detailing was indeed one of those odd fashion trends, (perhaps the next trend fashion designers will go for is for laundry label to be sewn on the outside!) but it didn't detract from the over all look.
It might not detract for some people but it stuck out like two headlights to me. It was the first thing I noticed. I guess I just don't understand some of today's trends.

I like the coat and the dress. Catherine looks elegant and comfortable. She gets bonus points for those heels too. I know I won't have been able to tolerate them in any situation, let alone while heavily pregnant.

I love the dress she wore today. Loved the cut. Cute print. One of her better maternity choices if not the best. The coat was nice. Would have looked better had she left it open to show off the dress/contrast. It's also nice to see the appropriate length on her. Not too short like in the past, and not too long to be matronly.

She looked wonderful. Love the tiny bit of weight which shows the dimples.mthe hair is way too orange for my taste. The coat is gorgeous, agree that however another could have been recycled. She still loos very small for a second time mother

For example, on a man's double breasted suit jacket, you don't see where the button is that holds the under fabric in place. So, is this just the manufacturer is too lazy or cheap to do it properly or is this another one of those weird fashion trends like zippers on the outside of garments?

I think the coat was actually for warmth over a light dress. Wearing coats undone is a bit counter-productive in winter.

As to the marks, I think they are actually pulls where the double breasted buttons are on the inside, as shown by both Catherine and Eugenie. Probably a new "trend" as Jack suggested!

And this has to be my pet hate of Catherine wearing a larger size ordinary coat rather than maternity coat. It hitches up in the front and just plain looks odd!

A lot of those coats, including the green Mulberry one for the scouts parade at Windsor, were for much warmer weather. It is very cold in the UK, and you need a proper winter coat at the moment. Most coats from the first pregnancy would be unsuitable.

The summer she had George was hot... The clothes from her last trimester were pretty lightweight. Perhaps her pink Alex McQ coat from trooping the color in 2013 could be her Easter coat this year ....I expect that will be her last appearance

William and Kate have never done Easter with the Queen at Windsor. Last year they were in Australia, the year before privately in Wales, earlier time at Buckleberry.

St Patrick's Day with the Irish Guards may be a better bet for last public appearance.

So I presume we should expect yet another maternity coat in green for St Patricks's Day. That said, I hope she uses her crème coat from yesterday, with a green hat.

I think the white/cream coat yesterday with the corsage of shamrocks would look stunning for St Patrick's Day!

That would definitely be a lovely combination, but I don't think she'll wear the white coat. All green seems to be her signature look for St Patrick's Day.

Plus, I doubt the coat would fit nicely by then....

Nope, it hasn't. And since it's rather late in the pregnancy it's up in the air, at least to me. Could go either way.

Catherine looks great. I like her dress as well, it fits nicely with the coat. Is the dress a repeat from her visit to the Harry Potter World when she was pregnant with George? I recognise it, but then again I could be imagining things.

No, that was a white dress with black polka dots and this is a black dress with small sailboats.

Yep, the collar looks McQueen to me but I could be wrong. I love that she is repeating the Seraphine dress she wore in Kensington. It's so beautiful!

Kate wore a dusky blue wool coat and her favourite £395 navy blue suede Jimmy Choo court shoes
Beneath the coat was a £95 floral dress by maternity label Séraphine - worn for Kensington engagement last month
