I think Kate will wear this new dress for the Diplomatic Reception. It’s in a couple of weeks, so should still fit and she’s always worm repeats for this event. She also tends to do conservative looks for it, so this fits.

She hasn’t worn any evening gowns in her third trimester, so depending on when they go to Scandinavia AND if there is a black tie event I think we’ll see something new. She does have a number of great cocktail dresses and maternity coats I’m hoping she’ll repeat.

I wouldn't think she would wear this dress (Royal Variety Show) just 2 weeks or so later at another public event. Now she could use that over-lay ontop of a different under-dress (cream?).

I'm expecting something new or recycled from previous pregnancies.

I would have liked this dress more in a jewel tone or Gold. I find pastels wash Kate out a great deal. I also found the neckline to be very patronly. However, the dress moves beautifully.

I dont think she cares about that so much, we only get car photos anyway. And she actually wore the same dress two years in a row for the Diplomatic Reception, which I found quite weird. I dont expect a new dress for this and she really doesnt have that much appropriate repeats that would fit her now. She wore the black lace dress twice already this month. I guess the dark blue dress from New York might work.

Depending on the structure and fabric there might be some gowns from the past she is able to alter for early pregnancy.

Probably, and since most of her gowns are bespoke Im sure the designers would gladly alter them if possible.

Ive been in a repeat phase lately, so am actually more interested in what she repeats this time around than another new dress.

I would be surprised if she wore the 'Royal Variety' gown because as this is a tiara event, I think the combination of several Royal jewels and the sparkly dress would be too much bling for the Duchess. Plus quite uncomfortable too!

It would be great to see her wear the navy blue gown from 2014 again for the Diplomatic reception. She could wear it sith the Nizam necklace abd the Lovers Knot tiara.

Alternatively, she could wear the dress from the Variety Show again with the Lovers Knot tiara and no necklace.

I think it would look nice with the lotus tiara and smaller diamond earrings and her hair in an updo. Guess well know soon enough.

Love the dress, shoes and clutch. Just a bit matronly for me

I love this look and the pop of color with the shoes. Plus, I love Kate Spade and I liked the other Kate Spade dress she wore as well. I would wear either one. I dont see anything dowdy or matronly about it and Im a whole decade younger than Kate but thats just my opinion.

I think it is a nod to the retro look we are seeing now days and I love it.

It has a 70s 'vibe' to it [as so much fashion does atm]. It can look dowdy and dated to those who've 'seen it all before', but looks fresh to those that haven't had that misfortune.
I only like the shoes and clutch, myself.

All fashion comes around...I think it's a nod to farther back myself. Either way it suits her.

A lot of Kates clothing reminds me of the 40s which I love personally. Could be wrong but its fun.
