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.
I think if Catherine was going to be outside for a lengthy period, she would be careful enough to wrap up warm. Flu/colds can be caught whether it is warm or cold - in fact the warmer the environment, the more likely germs and nasties can be caught as they multiply more quickly. Fresh cold air outside is probably safer! I shouldn't imagine a cold or the flu will be caught in the two minutes between a car and a building, more likely inside the building where many people have congregated and are all coughing with nerves!

I think Catherine looked very nice in both outfits, although black tights, black boots and black lace have saturated the fashion world everywhere and will no doubt be seen and worn for a very long tim to come!

Is that a new suit and tie William is wearing?! Oh....no it isn't ;-(

Oh, how sad, never mind . . . at least his suit and tie will be back in fashion in 20 years or so . . .

She looks well wrapped up and very nice in the arrival outfit, but I tend to agree about the black lace number - an interesting/ contrasting stole would have solved the problem.

I expected a new dress and a recycled one to be honest... The aubiergine coat by Seraphine is really ugly IMO and I thought she would have repeated one of her many coats... The black one suited her very much and was very beautiful... Even if it is similar to other black lace dresses she has... I find her skin terrific and her hair was glowing too...

Just thinking we perhaps need a new thread devoted to black lace dresses worn by royals 😄

Here's a quote from the DM:

"Wills made quite the fashion statement among black suits in a deep blue number."

Were they being snarky?

Wills normally wears a blue suit. The darker one he wore going to hotel is more of a fashion shock than the evening one.

Regarding the lack of coats, they are outside for about 30 seconds as the walk from the car to the door.

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

Is it me or she is wearing a white bra under the black lace dress?

I thought Kate's lace dress was quite pretty, As regards her getting a cold or flu from not having a coat on.....colds and flus are caused by viruses not by being in the cold or even feeling cold, those are just old wives tales.Now if she shakes hands with someone who has a cold once she enters the warmth of the building then she might indeed get one, just like we all would.

I think its the basic little black dress with a variation that you can't go wrong with for evening wear.

I really liked the coat she was wearing. I thought it was super cute. Not feeling the black lace dress though.

Thank you for saying it. Kate will not catch a cold or flu by going without a coat for a few minutes. Her biggest risk for getting sick would be shaking hands/coming into contact with someone that is sick. That's why washing your hands is so important during the cold/flu season.

I love the coat but, the color and the details. The black dress seemed extremely. Boring and would have been much improved with hair up. Lovely to see her dimples back with just a tiny bit more weight on, wish she kept it as she really looks so pretty, not drawn looking.
As far as outside, yes it was very cold in ny last night but going from a heated open entryway as most upscale ny hotels have, to a waiting car, maybe ten steps, doesn't really count as being outside. I remember when they auctioned off grand dame Brooke Astor's clothes, she had no overcoats as she lived this life.

It's quite short indeed, but I think it's still very beautiful. And she's young, she can wear short things...

Overall, Catherine's outfits in New York have been great so far. That shade of purple on her Seraphine coat looks lovely on her. I'm not a fan of the black lines though.

I don't think Catherine's latest coat is too short at all. It seems to be just the right length for me.

More black...

Some complain the coatdress is too short, I complain that it's TOO DARK. She's young, she's visiting children, it's winter. Is a spot of color too much to ask for?

No not all, how about a nice deep red coat and a scarf with a NY design of red, black and white with black gloves to match..
