Maybe so...seems like all we've seen in the past month or so (outside the evening events) is the short little girl dresses and black tights.

Her coat is right above the knees...is that really considered short?

I really like this outfit. The coat is very festive.

She has such a long torso that when she wears things above the knee it just makes them look shorter too I think. The porportion is off when she wears these short dresses/coats.

Her coat is right above the knee. Doesn't seem too short to me at all. She looks wonderful and I love the coat.

My eyes are still riveted to that humongous hat.��

I like her overall look well enough and enjoy the pieces by themselves, but something is just a bit off proportion-wise. I think this hat would have called for a longer coat or perhaps if we wear to have seen the hemline of a black velvet dress peeking out. The combination just seems a bit unbalanced.
Overall, I have to say that I am enjoying her maternity fashion this time around. ���� (moreso than I did with George and Charlotte)

I love me some plaid but the coat combined with the hat is slightly too costume-y and stuffy for my taste. She looks happy in it though!

Like this a lot - love the colours and shape of the coat.

I'm a fan of proper hats and I like this one.

But the best accessories were the smile and William!

And people say they dislike Meghan's hat. Not liking anything about Kate's look except her smile.

I love Kate's coat! The plaid and festive colors, the velvet collar.

And in the colder months, I like black tights although boots would have been okay too.

I don't think her coat is short, it is only a little above the knee and with the black tights is fine. A few of her dresses recently have been mid thigh- that's short.

Is the hat a replay of one of the hats that that her Mom wears/owns?
I adore this coat choice - not for general appearances, but for this day it is wonderful.

If you look back at Christmas church appearances, the family often seems to set broad themes for dressing that the ladies follow and so don't either match or clash with Her Majesty. It also helps Royal watchers spot Royals in the large crowd of family.

Personally, I think they have always worked that out amongst themselves. They learn the color HM will wear and then choose a palette that works around that color and will photograph nicely.

So we have had years where parts of the family were in blues and reds, years where there were neutrals or paler tones. This year I enjoyed Sophie and Catherine in patterns. I was easily able to pick them out.

Kate's coat just screamed festive to me - and I like that a lot for Christmas.

If the tartan was a coat shawl and the coat color was one from the tartan pattern I would have be cool with it. I like the hat but not the wedge shoes and black tights.

Usually would agree, would prefer tartan as a scarf but here no.

I actually really love this coat. Except for the gold buttons on it. It is festive for the holiday, and warm. Not too short at all.

But I hate the black tights with it. And the thing on her head has to go.

Sorry but this coat is awful as styled to me. With jeans or something it would look better perhaps.

A very dated look.

While I appreciate the festive nature of her coat, it is a dated look... but I think anything plaid on Christmas would feel dated to me? Kinda 80s, Christmas family middle america portrait?

But Kate has a very, very, very traditional style - so this look works for her.

The style is perfect for her baby bump too.

Not sure about the hat - I can't even parse out what kind of hat it is?

Kate looks good, except for that horrible hat. That was a mistake. But she is rosy and beaming, so I guess who cares, right?
