I was just thinking that same thing. Pants would have been a better choice with this coat. It looks as if there is a dress under the coat, but all in all the coat is too short in my opinion.

Is it fashion at the moment or why did Catherine wear longer coats and skirts wehn she was not yet pregnant? I like such short coats personally but IMHO she should be combining them with trousers - and if these are too tight by now she should wear longer coats.

I know the Sixties are coming back in fashion but she is a pregnant Royal and not in a competition with anybody. IMHO, of course.

Presumably she has decided that being pregnant is no reason to dress matronly. or wear sacks like Victoria of Sweden did.

Here's Tom and Lorenzo's take on today's outfit:

I'm with them; I think she looks really cute.

Could I suggest/request that we not comment on Catherine's pregnancy shape? Those of us who have been pregnant know that we have no real control over how big our 'bump' or our bottom-or our bust- gets. Enlargement during pregnancy is unavoidable and natural. IMO it is tasteless to critique a pregnant woman's figure. Truly, it is what it is-and it is what it needs to be.

But it's no reason to dress like a girl either

What a dull frock and far too short to be worn without pants or a skirt underneath. And those everlasting boots ... another appearance to forget about quickly.

I do believe she was well prepared for the wind and had something underneath her dress.

My take: either pair the coat with slacks if worn at that length or drop the hem on the coat if worn with a dress.

I am too- I love the shape of the coat. I also think it makes total sense to wear your favorite comfy boots when you're six months pregnant and it's cold.

Her hair is all over the place today, but it looks windy so that's understandable.

All in all, a cute look, and the endless hemline debate is so far past boring at this point. *yawn*

Is Kate scheduled to appear at any evening engagements over the next few months? It would be lovely to see an evening gown while she is pregnant.

No evening events scheduled unless she attends the UAE state dinner on the 30th April.

I am in agreeing with your opinion. The coat was just too short if worn on its own, although paired with trousers, it could have looked great.

IKR? There is nothing wrong with the length

Victoria sacks were about the same length or shorter than what Kate is wearing now

She should do like Letizia and wear length (shorter) https://securecdn.disqus.com/uploads...2/original.jpg https://securecdn.disqus.com/uploads...3/original.jpg people will complain either way

I really don't care for the coat she wore today; it seems clunky and awkward to me. Not at all flattering.

Today's look isn't one of my favourites from Catherine, and I don't particularly like the buttons on her sleeves. However, I do like her boots and the tartan is nice, but I think that the colour of it is a bit dark (although I suppose that brighter colours would look a bit out of place in the cold weather).

I found a couple of galleries on Getty Images about their visit to Scotland:

I like the style but I don't like the print of the coat.

Catherine has the figure for this particular length, and she's utilizing it. The coat looks really cute on her, and the boots are probably comfortable and keep her warm. Not a bad choice at all.

I like the tartan itself. Wearing tartan to engagements in Scotland is customary for the British royals ... apparently.
