Love the dress! It fits her well and the style looks very good on her along with the color...very classy!

Love the coat, LOVE the dress! Much better than the green coat at the Scouts engagement the other day. Two thumbs up.

LOL! Oh, the different meanings to the word depending on what side of the pond you are on!

I meant pants as in trousers. Not panties....

Same here! Love it with the coat.

I think it's the same coat she wore to the wedding in Switzerland.

The print almost looks like a batik pattern...maybe inspired by her trip to Malaysia late last year

Some gathers or a few wide pleats under the bust would have done wonders.
The more I look at this dress, the more I dislike it, pregnant or not.

Th dress only looked good from the side, the random random red down the front and back just looked awkward. The fit and style is not but the red is not.

The dress is lovely IMO and I like the color combination but not so much the print. Nevertheless she wore it well. Not a fan of the cream coat matched with the dress but its a nice coat.

Not sure I like the coat due to the way the shoulder part is designed.

I remain undecided about yesterdays Erdem dress on Kate - obviously not specifically designed maternity wear i find the fit awkward in places. I also wonder that its quite an expenisve piece and she likes to modify outfits for reuse - will we see this modified for post pregnancy use?

I agree with you and I think the price tag is high for a maternity dress unless she got it for free for publicied!

How likely is it that Catherine would compromise her position and accept a freebie, unlike her sister?

Never happen. This is all part of not "owing" favours to anyone, something that Diana got caught up in.

How likely is it that we would ever know if something like that occured?

Think she looks lovely, particularly her hair and the colour of the frock. I even like the style. But the material is wrong, it shouldn't be that stiff and sticking out. And as usual with Wick stead, it isn't well made, It looks like something I made, and I'm pretty bad at dressmaking.

I was hoping I wouldn't be the only one who thought that! It looks awful, as if it was done this morning. The colour is beautiful though.

Because they made it clear before the wedding that freebies wouldn't be accepted and there is no way, IMO, that they would go back on that as the fallout would be enormous.
