I agree. The truth is, simple (and uncluttered) is best. Makes the camera happy.

BTW I was chatting to me hubby about the concerns over yet another coat (he leaned in as he was passing by, asking me what was engrossing me today). His view is that with the erratic weather to come with Climate Change, Catherine will need all those coats over the years because Britain will be seeing colder and longer winters. Thank you, dear heart, you may now move along.

The truth is that British women can never have TOO many coats or cardigans.. the changeable nature of our weather [sometimes 3 seasons in a single day] makes it so...

Interesting... Thank you Marika! I like a lot the looks of today, especially because Kate gave up her usual heavy and unflattering make-up! She looks much better without too much kajal! I love the dress!

She looks fantastic and the polka dots are fun for an engagement with children.

I don't see a significant difference in the kohl liner. I think it's more to do with her fuller face and more rosy complexion

It's a nice look, simple yet comfy. I really liked her hair style today, it was soft loose curls which is nice.

You might be right but I see a less harsh make-up

Very nice look for today's engage,met. Catherine looks comfortable, and I love the minimalist approach. It's best when interacting with children.

I also love this look! One simply cannot go wrong with black and white... usually. :)

I initially thought that but the shamrock looked fabulous on her coat, which more than covered the "green" requirement.

This ensemble really ticked all the right boxes:

Terrific updo = Check.

Perfect hat for said updo = Check.

Elegant Coat = Check.

Brooch = Check.

Catherine really pulled out all the stops here. Her updo was the perfect base for her beautiful chocolate brown hat. I think the felt bow on the side just lifted the whole "look".

I love the cut and style of her coat, with it's beautiful loose cut and elegant collar, it looked wonderful with her hat. Her coat actually surprised me in that it was black, which is hard to segue with chocolate brown, but she did it. Best of all was the length, elegant and actually emphasising her long legs and finishing with brown suede shoes to amazing height.

But the pièce de résistance was the beautiful shamrock brooch which, with the addition of the real green shamrock, looked absolutely perfect.

And in this I would have to agree.

Love the black/white polka dots...just a bit short but otherwise love the shape/style of it. She looks very good/relaxed today.

Catherine looks radiantly relaxed here. Top flight dress and make-up.

The fuller face makes her look younger and fresh imo. Very nice.

Gosh, she's lovely. Her ankles are tres magnifique! My own ankles, displayed in high heels, were swell- not swollen-until two weeks before my due date!

Oh dear, back to the great hair fiddling, high street sell-out dress and a black coat that is just using her as a coat hanger because it is certainly doesn't appear large enough to go round her.

It's comforting to know I'm not the only one looking at her ankles for signs of water retention/discomfort. She is amazing and in amazing shape.
I mean that she is giving that child the very best start in terms of health and birth weight rather than that she remains a very attractive "clothes hanger."

> What is wrong with the high street sell-out dress?
> It was a bright spring day, not particularly cold. What is wrong with wearing a coat that was not (or could not) be buttoned up? She was never going to spend much time outdoors?
