Anyone else of that opinion?

Perhaps she thought if she wore a simple classic coat in B&W at an engagement happening around the same time as William's speech, there wouldn't be as much attention on the clothes and instead where it should be? It was the first thing that I thought of when I finally saw the pictures last night. (I was gone this weekend and staying at a cousin's that doesn't have a computer, so...)

Just putting that out there.

Nice Gown The Duchess is wearing tonight.

US Weekly said on twitter hey wish she wouldn't dress so "Prim and Proper"

Yeah I guess She should dress like Kim Kardashian.... Give me a break U.S Weekly!

An updo and major bling on her ears and wrist! More than compensates for a re-run dress (which is beautiful, by the way!)

She looked beautiful tonight.
Best of Tour- the pink ensemble in my opinion.

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.

Catherine has definitely dressed to please herself this tour and my only thoughts as to the pink coat at the 9/11 Memorial is that it was longer and could therefore be considered more sedate. To be honest, I think she would have been better in a more subdued colour because like it or not she is visiting a Memorial on behalf of HM and her government. Had it been a personal visit then the pink would have been spot on.

How I wish she had worn the pink for the children and lots of colour for every other engagement of this visit although I have to admit that I loved seeing her wearing her ink blue Jenny Packham gown and with such stunning jewellery. Her really elegant updo was a welcome bonus.

The Duchess of Cambridge's Maternity Fashion: December 2012 -

Here's the Queen visiting ground zero in 2010. She is dressed in a bright floral outfit. Not really somber in color.

Here's Camilla at Ground Zero wearing a pink suit.

I've noticed that even when the Queen is visiting memorials, she'll often wear bright colors. So I doubt she had a problem with Kate's pink coat.

The duchess owned her look and appeared to own the room tonight! Talk about having a look in which you hold court. Consider my socks knocked off.

And she can keep re wearing that navy gown. It's regal. She's regal in it.

I just have to say it: I think this coat is very nice, but in that kind of cold it's meant to have a pair of dress pants at least, or something to complement it on the legs (beyond tights). It just is. (Would this have looked better with boots and a skirt meeting those boot tops?)

EDIT: I have changed my mind about the coat. I think Al_bina said it: not well designed. I agree on closer inspection. The back (what is it) belt? makes no sense. So a double strike: too short for the weather and place and meh when it comes to the styling.

Tights don't keep one warm enough in those kind of temperatures. So for me it's not a question of whether the coat is too short. Rather, she is not dressed normally for the weather, and that makes it look odd. She is being ill-advised, I think, or is not thinking through what she's wearing in another country under very different temperatures. Just some thoughts.

The pink coat at the memorial is an excellent length to keep warm in imo. She doesn't look so out-of-place with that coat's length either.

The Daily Mail had an article about tonight's dress showing the earlier outings at KP and at the NPG. Both previous times, Kate's hair was down and this time is up and makes a world of difference.

The recycled jenny Packham dress looks so much better on this time round with hair pulled up and breathtaking earrings that can be seen properly. This dress sure suits a pregnant women.

Close up ** Back view ** Full view 1 ** Full view 2

The 9/11 memorial coat is very pretty.

Hair looks stunning up! But I know recycling is the "in" thing with royals but would it harm them to show up something new?! I'm desperate for a new dress here.

The pink mulberry is expensive for a coat, Mulberry whilst being a british brand has hiked it's prices up an enormous amount and most of their stuff is totally unafforadable without a bank loan!

The Duchess of Cambridge's Maternity Fashion: December 2012 -

Maybe because a maternity gown maybe just a one time wear, she didn't want to spend the money on it since this one still fit. The coats can be worn again. I don't remember a true evening gown being worn in the later half of her carrying George. Anybody recall one? I remember a baby blue cocktail one to the NHM or NPG.
