Commonwealth Day Service & Reception caption: LONDON, ENGLAND - MARCH 12: (L-R) Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge attend the 2018 Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey on March 12, 2018 in London, England.

VERY pregnant looking, and still so regal and put together. I wish I wore maternity this well!

YES, @hel I think you're correct, the hat is a repeat, just not with this particular ensemble.

I don’t think anyone does pregnancy fashion better than Catherine.

I actually was expecting this navy outfit as a repeat today at the service. Its good to see her dig it out from the last pregnancy.

Lovely navy outfit for Kate. The hat is great with this outfit and the brooch is a nice touch.

Kate looks great today. I liked this outfit the first time she wore it, so I’m really glad that she pulled it out again.

She looks wonderful.

(The hats she seems to favor are generally from either Jane Taylor or from Lock & Co.
I usually like the Lock hats better).

The dress is very pretty but the 2nd hat is horrible in my opinion. I don't know why she has 2 hats but she should have stuck to the side one. The other one looks like she is wearing a lamp shade.
The color is very beautiful btw.

I like this outfit, would have preferred the older version with the hair up to make an appearance. I don't like the hat with this ensemble or flowing hair, as it makes her look childish.

After HM, who looks spectacular btw, Catherine is best dressed. She looks beautifully pregnant, which suits her (I think it will be a boy!) and her hat and jewelry are perfect.
Why does everyone expect this coat? When did she wear it before, she has SO many!
I only long for gloves.

She may have a lot of coat dresses, but very few that are suitable for the occasion, time of year, AND her advanced pregnancy.

There was clearly a bit of co-ordination between the senior Windsor ladies to wear navy blue. They all came out with slightly different takes on the theme, but it all seemed to work quite well, IMO.

.

The discussion about the brooch the Duchess of Cambridge has worn today, has been deleted, as we have an extra thread for her jewels and as the same discussion has already been led at that thread. Thank you for your understanding!

Loved both ensembles but I think I understand that today it was all about comfort and the coat and dress fit and last year's hat makes her features look finer at a time when she doesn't really want the undiluted glare of the cameras on her face.

Really lovely coat. Nice to see again. Love she added a brooch

As much as I love a proper hat, I am not a fan of this one. It seems too big on her. I didn't like it the first time. Sad, because I usually go crazy for real hats.


Along with the memorial she wore the hat to, she has also worn it in private it seems. On the way to church near Balmoral.

I think she looked fabulous. The hat was tricky but she pulled it off! Lovely.

Her last engagement it seems will be St Patricks day parade - I'm half expecting to see a repeat (fingers crossed) of the outfit she wore to it when pregnant with Charlotte. It was a Catherine Walker brown coat and hat. Seems prudent at this stage of her pregnancy - she is about the same distance along

I agree either that brown Catherine Walker (which was my back up guess for the Commonwealth service) or if she can still fit into it - the green Catherine Walker coat she wore the first day in Sweden.

I think she is a little further along than before - I expect this baby to appear in about 30 days.

Perhaps one of her white coats, with green accessories?

(I think you are right about the birth; it probably will be closer to the beginning of April than at the end of the month).
