I think the gown definitely looks better in the colour green.
The black version is nice but somewhat boring.

My mother and I both gasped when Kate walked onto the stage. A beautiful gown and Kate is looking wonderful, despite her recent hospital stay.

Counting down to the inevitable 'she should've worn her hair up' complaints...

She looks like a happy mother-to-be.

Well worth the wait for me! Catherine looks beautiful and happy and I think green is a nice colour for a dress
My little brother crushes on her big time so he was smiling from ear to ear.

She looked so beautiful, it's a lovely shade of green and I too prefer it in green rather than in black.

OK - I'll be the one to say - the patch pockets looked OK on the McQueen website - not great mind you, but I understand the reason they were on the dress. They echoed the bell of the sleeve.

In life and in green the patch pockets looked like... patch pockets.

The rest of the dress and the color and her hair and her sparkly eyes - all looked lovely. The pockets might have even been hoped to be bump concealers.

And with Catherine next to Jessica Ennis in red - they looked a Christmas treat!

Prefer the gown on the mannequin than Catherine, the colour is okay but I'm not a fan. She looks lovely in the face considering.

I didn't thinl they were patch pockets, I thought iit was a plain peplum - by which I mean flat, not gathered. I think we need better pics

So glad to see her out. Love the dress and the color is lovely on Catherine, wish she would have worn it with the belt, but I do understand why she didn't. Hopefully we will see this one again, with a belt.

I love the color of the dress with Catherine's coloring, and her hair is also a compliment to the dress. Saying that, I don't love the dress' sleeves and the cuts. Still, she looks fantastic given the morning sicknesss. Lovely.

I love the dress, but I have to say Catherine should wear more dramatic jewelry.
Her necklace is ok, but something more eye-catching would look better with such an understated dress, imo.

Catherine looked absolutely stunning. That shade of green is simply gorgeous on her.

Yes, I would have liked to see more jewelry, although she looked lovely, I think some sparkle would be great.

Really liking the dress, it was a pretty color and fit her nicely. I think the slit is was made it for me.

Another Little House on the Prairie look. The hair is awful. Glad to see Kate is well enough to be on duty again.(..)

Lovely color of dress and the style suits her but I think she cant pull off the slit too well.

If that dress was Little House on the Prairie, I'd still be watching. Her hair looked great-healthy and lush and she looks more comfortable in the bangs.(...)
