I do, he looks like an average guy going to a basketball game with his date/wife, normal and a rare chance for him to be like that. I like what I see in him on this trip....lots of self-confidence and maturity.

That bright pink is divine and she rocks it!
My only ? - why didn't she wear the pink ensemble yesterday, and the black today? Would have been more event - appropriate , IMO.
Yes, yr so right Roseroyal, I was hoping that she would brighten her looks for all this black and grey was boring on her, the pink would of been so much better for the school for that is a happy color for children, and the black coat would of been more for the memorial which is a somber place...anyhow I love the pink coat and the hair out of the face for a change. Now for tonight....

I've liked all 3 of Catherine's "coats" worn during this trip. However, I'm a bit surprised that she didn't wear the bright pink coat yesterday to visit w/the children and the black coat today to the 9-11 Memorial.


Anyone else of that opinion?

Totally agree with you, I think the event today demanded sombre colours out of respect for the victims and the bright pink would have been much more jolly for visiting children. It seems obvious but obviously not for Kate.

Yes I think the pink coat might have been a better choice for the previous engagement, but at least we get to see a brighter colour on this trip. This is my favourite of her outfits so far.

Honestly I am taken aback by these choices... All new and not particularly striking outfits IMO... I don't know why she chosed to ewear such a bright color for the memorial while she dressed in black for more cheerful events... Can't undertstand that at all

She looked good in pink today. Does she ever take off her coats? Must have been boiling hot at the NBA last night, and today in the close quarters of the dance exhibition.

I really liked the pink coat. The coat she wore to the NBA was nice, but I would have liked to see what top she was wearing.

She may have been taking a page from the Queen and Camilla. Both wore bright colors when they visited Ground Zero. The Queen wore a blue floral dress and Camilla wore a bright pink one.

You do not measure "respect for victims" by the colour of people's clothes. Millions of people come to this memorial and they wear colour - no one thinks less of them.

I've noticed that even family members of the victims don't wear black when they visit. Life goes on after tragedy.

You took the words right out of my mouth. I've visited many memorials. I've never set out to wear dark colors for the occasion. I've never seen anyone else do that either.

Catherine's pink coat today was lovely and beautifully made - I think she looks good in these bright colours, perhaps more so than darker shades sometimes.

Love the color of the coat and a much more decent length as well. If she'd of had a black collar on the coat it would of matched her gloves...ala Jackie.

I LOVE the pink coat. I'm a big fan of the color pink, and that shade looks fantastic on her. (I've also always been a fan of black and bright pink color combos, so I was quite excited to see her in this coat).

That's a good point. I didn't mind that she wore black to visit the children, or that she wore pink at the 9/11 Memorial, but having having it the other way around would have seemed a bit more natural. However, the choice may have been made because of the shape and cut of the coats. This morning's weather was quite nasty in New York, and William and Kate knew they'd be outside to lay flowers at the memorial, and the pink coat seems like it provides a bit more coverage.

It was a rain coat. And in that color the public could pick her from afar. And even for funerals much less at memorials, black is seen less and less. For example, the Duke wore Blue

Actually, I am not sure the pink coat is a rain coat. The company says it is a wool and silk blend but doesn't say anything about any waterproofing. It was however, the only appropriate length she has worn the whole trip. The black and white was supposed to be a jacket worn with trousers but she had an extra piece sewn to the bottom to make it longer - just not long enough. But you are right about seeing less black at funerals. A couple came to my mother's funeral last year in shorts.

OK, People! Let's chill on the color controversy that I seem to have inadvertently caused. Let me put it this way ... would have been nice for the kids if the Duchess had worn a bright and festive color to greet them too. Does that work better for you?

Love the pink coat and I think it is thoughtful so that people,can spot her in a crowd of black, like hm. Also, pink is the color of hope. Her hair looked really cute and love the earrings.
She really has a lot of coats! Does anyone have a count? I'm thinking she could recycle some of the maternity coats she wore with George.

yes, I just love this dress. I'd love to see her wear it for a tiara night one day, just to see what it looks like.

Her earrings look amazing, from what I can see.

That's the ink blue gown from the Women in Hedge fund dinner at KP right after George's christening.

I think her hair has been spot on for this tour.
