The tartan coat looks very nice on Kate, I can see both sides of the "ill fitting" issue, I would attribute it more to the McQueen styling; pocket flaps, and the skirt beginning higher in the back than the sides, and Kate's poor posture for the appearance of poor fitting.
At least the plaids match! She can wear the dark colors, and does have the height to pull off the large skirt, thankfully it is just long enough, would be even nicer with a few extra inches.
Skirt doesn't look longer in front at all, unless you count the shots where she's in mid-stride or bending over, in which case, yes, I completely agree, the skirt is indeed ill-fitting and badly made.
Seriously, to each his own, but IMO there is nothing wrong with the construction, workmanship or technique of this outfit.
