Yes - that's the dress! I think the material dulls the colour down too much, thus we are uncertain as to its true colour!!

I have a set of RHS Colour Charts. For what it's worth, based on the colour that dress appears on my monitor, it is in the Violet-Blue Group, not the Purple Group or Red-Purple group where "plum" colours reside.

Max Foster announced the arrival coat is Seraphine. Looks to be aubegine/burgundy boucle with metallic flecks. Dark (black, it seems) bands down across the front in a cross. Not in the current line. Duke in blue tie with THE blue suit.

ETA: She can camouflage a baby bump really well.

She looks terrific, especially after a transatlantic flight. It looks like she is able to sleep on planes, something I can never do. Both looks are flattering. The second baby bump grows faster. The abdominal muscles know what is coming and decide not to fight it.

Kate always looks nice, but to be honest, I am getting very tired of black lace!

The arrival outfit was lovely especially the coat, the dress was a bit too short for me.

The evening dress is nothing special, the lace used is not pretty and the overall style is boring. It's a pity that she wears lovely long earrings but hidden under her hair.

I am going to say something that is probably going to make people mad but I have to get this off my chest. For Catherine to go outside in NYC without a coat in 30+ degree weather while she is pregnant and in the middle of flu season just so she can show us yet another black lace dress seems to me to be insanity. Does it not occur to her that she could get sick and seriously affect the health of her baby or does she not care? Is showing off another boring black lace dress more important than the health of her baby? I do not understand her.

Mirabel, I am not just sick of black lace, I am sick of lace period!

Ok, I am sorry - my rant is now done.

It may be a rant and it may be done but, it was a point well worth making. More importantly, you have managed to make a fair and valid observation clearly and with no hidden agenda.

°30F = °-1.1C That is very cold. What on earth was she thinking?

I think that's a tad harsh considering she must have been outside for less than a couple of minutes.

I think she has chosen what she comfortable with. And she looked great.

I've seen some clear pix of the earrings and they a different from her usual style but added a touch of glamour.

Not bad but I much prefer the coat - that was special

The outfits are ok but nothing special. As usual, hair up would have made a massive difference to the better.

A lot of pregnant women have raised body temps when pregnant. I was heavily pregnant in winter and it was the norm for me to go out in cold weather without a coat.

Also, she was going from a warm car to warm indoors. Hardly a walk around NYC.
