In general terms, it's not really what I would describe as a maternity outfit. It's unusual for a pregnant woman to be drawing attention to her waist, which that belt does.
I sort of feel that the belt WAS actually meant to unite the skirt and top more already, but less in terms of colour and more in terms of fabric. That said, I still feel it missed the mark. As someone else posted, I'm thinking that perhaps the she didn't fit in the original top meant to go with the skirt - as all of us who are/have been pregnant have experienced. Perhaps this is the top they chose as a stand-in.

I thought she looked terrific, except the belt could have been better as many have suggested. Watching the video, she looked comfortable and totally engaged with what she was doing, as hostess. But, she is so engaged that her posture suffers, IMO, terribly. A belt and peplum at this stage is a great ploy, I do remember doing it myself right before the tent stage, but slouching doesn't help at any time. Love the earrings, hairdo, and her glow of health, she must finally be feeling all better.

I think what impresses me the most about Kate (no matter what she is wearing) is that she comes across as being totally real and totally interested and involved in what she is doing and who she is with. There isn't a shred of phoniness about her. She has a certain joie de vivre that just makes everyone around her feel at ease. Especially children.

You hit the nail right and totally on the head Osipi! I love to see Kate in a new evening dress, and commenting on her fashion choices as much as anybody- but what I really love is to see Kate being Kate- with all the qualities you mentioned. That's what's important, that's how I measure a good day vs. a bad one. And so far by that standard, she has never had a bad day. So what if this was a miss- which in my opinion, it wasn't, or the dress she wore by Temperly to the AA event was a epic fail- in my opinion it was- her only one in that sense really? Kate was Kate. That I love and admire about her more than any outfit she puts on. I come on here because of her- not her clothes. And yes, other Royals too. But you get my point.

I am with those who think this outfit doesnt work together at all. The belt is totally out of place, I am no fan of the top either, it reminds me of a soap of the 80s.

I love both pieces but not together and IMO the earrings are not great far more too casual for the engagement. I think the belt is odd really just not styled well the whole look.

It's a nice look but ruined with a daytime belt. I don't mind a belt with this look as it needs one but something more evening look would've worked better.

I agree with you, to me, the outfit does not work at all.

Ladies, you're right on the money. While looking good is important, and this being a fashion thread, I think that Kate being Kate is what makes her beautiful. She can wear a potato sack, but her demeanor when interacting with people, especially children will overshadow that fact any day. Her smile is the first thing that I saw while looking at pictures from last night. Now, with that being said, I think her outfit was lovely, even with the belt and a skirt that some say don't go together with the top. Would a skirt in let's black, or maroon have looked better? Perhaps, but with her genuine demeanor, who the heck cares. Keep rocking it, Your Highness!

Kate's Hobbs top is completely sold out and sadly not available at any other UK retailer online. :(

Do like the hair and being able to see the earrings.

Agreed on all counts. But it wasn't a terrible outfit.

The top was fabulous (as were the hair and earrings). The skirt and belt, not so much.

Catherine herself looks lovely, though like others here, I'm not a fan of the overall look. The colours suit her and work well together, however Catherine's outfit reminds me of a costume a character from Hansel and Gretel might wear (it's the belt and top that give it that look to me).

It's wonderful to see that she's starting to be much more active now.

I agree with most of the posts, the top and bottom do not work well together. I think she should have worn the same top that was on the runway with this skirt (that top has blue and black tones that was more elegant and suited for this event). The belt doesn't fit at all with whole outfit. The hair looks nice though.

I love the skirt, I want buy a similar skirt like that. The blouse is pretty and cute, but not something that amazing. I really dislike the belt and it's weird to see a pregnant women wearing it.

Overall she looked great and I like her hair like that.

This time I absolutely love her look... simple, sweet, appropriate... But I think it's the ponytail that brings points to this look IMO
