I love the coat. Beautiful colors that is great for the occasion. I don't like her hat however.

I love the hat and I do think we may have seen it before (or something like it) on Carole Middleton. I was delighted by the tartan coat with the terrific pleating in the back.

And yes---she is wearing black tights a lot with the same footwear. She is pregnant with her third child. I am giving her unlimited passes on warm and safe legwear/footwear this winter because she looks so healthy and happy.

Though....it will be nice to see those fab legs again at Harry's wedding!

The hat looks like one of the faux fur numbers from Lock.
She has worn a similar hat in grey alpaca.

I think the black accessories are fine, they tone down the vibrant colors of the coat.

It's a miss from me. The coat, hat and accessories are mismatched. The coat reminds me of a girls winter school skirt uniform.

She is glowing and looks almost relieved not to be centre of attention

Absolutely adorable and festive look. Her mother and sister have versions of the hat I think. A longer skirt would help balance out the big hat, that is what looks off, she is tall enough to do it

Have to say, personally, I don't like it. It just looks very old fashioned, like something the Queen or Anne dug out the wardrobe for her from the 70s.

TBF on the model it looks good, so I really thing its the styling. Jeans & boots maybe make it look better or as others say, a shawl type jacket.

A very dated look.
Even with jeans it wouldn't work imo. For me the coat will only look good on the floor waiting to be put in the trash.

I thought Catherine looked just fabulous there, the very best of all of them except for HM who sparkled in orange, what a color on HM, stunning. One thing about Catherine's coat, it was impeccably made, there was not a plaid out of step in the making of that coat from all views that I saw. They matched up perfectly. Talk about custom made, this was it to the T! Catherine looked festive and was blooming with health today, and just oozed happiness and love all over the place.

Thanks! And it was Mom's brown hat styled like this that I was thinking of.

I normally don't have much to say about Kate's fashion, as I'm not much of a fan of her style. But I must say, I thought she looked lovely today, the best I've seen her look in awhile. I would agree that the coat and the hat together looks a bit dated or more suitable for an older woman but somehow, she still made it work (which is a first for her, quite frankly).

Kate has worn brown fur hat as well.All three ladies of the Middleton clan have rocked a similar one.

Kate's brown one was a big larger in style though

And of course her gray

Did Kate find her Christmas Day outfit in Princess Margaret’s old closet at KP? Really dowdy and frumpy and not at all flattering. We’ve seen much better on Kate.

The fur hats look like something you'd wear on a bad hair day.
