I don't like this outfit at all. First of all, I always hate her boots and these ones are no exception. The coat itself is cute and she wears the colour well, IMO. But it's way too short, it was clearly much better when she wore it a few years ago with jeans. This coat is not to wear with only tights and boots, IMO. Specially when you're pregnant and you're belly tends to make it even "shorter" in the front. And the buttons being moved is way too clear, I would never leave home with my coat like that.

Looks like I misunderstood your initial post, I thought you may have looked at a different picture. To me bare menas no tights thus my input.

I like the coat and the hat and I get the idea of moving the buttons to make it fit. She may want to use it later and move the buttons back. I like the boots and the tights as well.

I can't believe I'm spending my Saturday night trying to figure out if moving the buttons on the coat was a big deal or not.

Check out the Cheltenham video at this website (current as of this date); at 2:35 into it, Kate points out the buttons on her coat to another woman, gesturing to show that they were moved. I don't think it's a big deal but, as a result, the coat did not overlap enough and looked ill-fitted. I do applaud her for being thrifty but there may have been other, better options in her closet.

She could have spilled coffee or something on the well fitted coat she meant to wear, and then had to do this in a hurry. She was wearing the hat from Switzerland, perhaps she meant to wear that coat as well.

She may have just realized that what fit last week won't fit now. Pregnancy sure has a way of reminding you that your body is no longer your own.

All the coats I have seen her wearing, are fitted so tight, that I should wonder, if there is much more growing possible - and no wonder, they seem illfitted, when the buttons are moved; because that is just what happens.

I buy my coats to fit much loser - and find that more comfortable, as you can add a jumper or blazer unterneath, if need be.

Perhaps some sort of cape would be a better option, like the one she wore in the earliest stage of her pregnancy.

^^^A cape was exactly what I was thinking, like the one she wore several weeks ago in London.

Although I appreciate the need to wrap up warm,I think it would have been better if Kate had worn a lighter colour under that coat to relieve the dull looking neckline, or a colourful scarf/shawl. The dark tights didn't help - but it is very cold here at the moment for the middle of March.

Compare the coat last year to this. She is still in great shape - but look where the V neck hits last year and this. I give a lot of credit to whomever is helping with the alterations.

and http://cache1.asset-cache.net/gp/141...jNTDbKzhtG0twA

Did anyone find a good close up of the hair? That was what shocked me most. It was almost empire period in it's complexity - yet to my eye, it did not look like it had been done in a salon (it looked more casually put together).

I dont say it often but today Kate looked very good. Love the hat/hair combo. The coat is very fitting for the occasion.

I loved the look last year, and my views have not changed. The green suits Catherine, and I love the hair style.

I totally get the recycling thing. But wearing the same thing over and over again???? Something brighter would've been nice.

This is the 2nd time she has worn this coat. That isn't "over and over again".
