And anyways, I think she steals the spotlights everywhere she goes

Black is fine to wear to a wedding now. Rules about wedding attire have changed and relaxed over the years.

I think she looks nice. I like the dress and the addition of the pashmina.

Yes, lots of women now wear black at weddings.
(Even the bridesmaids!)

She looks pretty; if she bought new dresses for every event, she'd be criticized for that.

Nah she grabbed this at the Royal Mews. I saw bits of hay sticking to the fabric. They'll just need to sneak it back in before sunrise.

I understand that it's an evening wedding and a private event where Catherine didn't expect to be photographed, though I do agree that this is a little strange for a wedding. Even though we can wear any colour we want to a wedding, I do think Catherine should've worn something a bit more cheerful (like red or something), and agree with Blue_ that it looks like she's attending a funeral. I love her scarf however, and to be fair it does add a touch of colour to the outfit.

I like keeping with traditions so I'm probably biased, but I think we should wear brighter colours to weddings as it is a celebration, whereas we should wear more darker colours to funerals as it is a solemn event. Having said that, nowadays I think funerals in the UK are viewed more as a celebration of the deceased's life rather than a somber occasion (though if the deceased person died in a more tragic circumstance or at a very young age I guess it wouldn't really be referred to as such), or at least this is what we called my great-aunt and great-uncle's funerals when they died. People wore bold shades of blue and pink to their funerals (though I opted for a more traditional outfit) as it was more of a celebration of their life and remembering the happy times we had with them.

(Apologies as I've realised I've gone rather off-topic.)

I loved the dress the first time, but I don't like it with the wrap, and more color for a wedding. Wills looks fine.

Funniy enough, but I think Kate looks great in hoodies and jumpers! She looks younger! Question: does this sweather belongs to the Scout association?

I would imagine that it is an item of clothing designed especially for Scouting but can be purchased by anyone. Years ago Girl Scout leaders in the US could buy a bright yellow sweatshirt with green lettering that says "When the hand goes up, the mouth goes shut". I have a picture of me in it somewhere.

Nice appropriate outfit! But won't her hair be in the way of the frosting and such? Just curious.

Catherine looks great in casual clothing. Her attire choice for the engagement with the scouts was just right.

I loved the first outing of this gown, however this time out it seems to have had some alterations with positively voluminous skirts. Covering that with a large throw instead of a wrap and having her hair hanging down over that makes for a bulky and shapeless "look". Even having her hair up would have helped, if only a little.

I am against black at weddings, I don't care what anyone says, I think it's bad luck.

The Duke quips about Kate's hair day: Kate Middleton and Prince William attend the Queen's Christmas lunch without Prince George - hellomagazine.com
I just checked and its 12 degrees and 100% humidity right now.

The Duchess will get her own back on him, I am sure.

Maybe it was his payback from Australia with the "wool toupee" remark.
