Blue really suits the duchess but was surprised not to see her wearing an over coat given the bitterly cold weather in London!

She took it off prior to the event. Here's an arrival photo where she can be seen wearing a dark coat inside the car

OK really... she's inside, when people are inside they tend to take off the coats they wore outside.

I don't know why but her coat in yesterday gave me some "Camilla's vibe", it is like something Camilla will wear......I don't know why. And the buttons match her pendant . She really looks great in blue.

The Duchess quite often leaves her coat on inside, especially her light and mid weight coats.

The color looks nice but when Kate sits it looks like her bust line sits right on top of her belly. I know she's pregnant but this looks unfortunate.

It looks that way because at this point it does She's about 8 months along now and the baby is growing like crazy.

Well, yes, at some stage in a pregnancy, there really is no room anymore...The bust line sits on top the belly naturally, I'm afraid!

Have you ever been pregnant? There comes a point where unless you are standing all the time this is going to happen. I mean really is it necessary to be this nitpicky on a woman who is 8 months pregnant?

Really ! This is what a pregnant woman looks like it isn’t “unfortunate “

Madame Verseau, don't get offended if we've all had such reaction, I think it's all from women who have felt slightly uncomfortable in their 8th months of pregnancies!! Let's just say that maybe what you meant was that you've seen the Duchess in more flattering outfits

But then people would complain she's not pulling her weight when they're officially "full time royals" now. And sadly, most pregnant women work right up to their due dates as full time professionals. I'm guessing St. Patrick's Day will be her final engagement, but maybe she'll work further out given their now full time status.

It's sad that there is so much commentary on her work ethic, especially when you talk to her patronages and they have such wonderful things to say about the work she's done for them!

I don't think she looks tired though! She's looked great these last few weeks! I love all the blue, she wears it well. But I especially like the cornflower color! And the bust and cut of this Seraphine dress is perfect for this stage in pregnancy! It doesn't look like it's pulling and it looks so comfy and quite warm!

Maybe I'm just remembering how I felt at that stage of my pregnancies and see her tired!

I agree with all you said. Especially the love for the cornflower blue!

I don't think she's "bare-legged" as the Daily Mail is stating.

A couple of posts that were no longer discussing the Duchess of Cambridge's fashion choices have been removed as off-topic! Thanks you for your understanding!

I love that she's taking some risks in her evening wear, and I think this one works. But I don't think it would work if she wasn't pregnant, does that make sense? The cut and pattern work well with her belly, she isn't swallowed by it, but worn non-maternity, I think it would just wear her. I like it. It's different, and a fashion risk for her.

And dear Lord, thank you for not going to Erdem again!
