She is on an official tour of a country her husband is the future king of. She is here on Canadian money representing us. So I have no problem saying that yes I expect to see her at least making an attempt at wearing Canadian designers.
I find this funny. .... Kate needs to wear Canadian designers in Canada, but nothing in any of the other countries in the Commonwealth. I don't mind this idea if it's applied equally, but it's not.

And still an incredibly silly and pointless conversation in the middle of a tour. (and boy do I hate to compare women, but nobody ever complains about Sophie not wearing Canadian designers in Canada, etc. This is ridiculous.)

I agree. I just have to say one thing (and this is in no way a putdown on Sophie, she's great). She's literally a patron of british fashion organizations and to an event showcasing british fashion she wore Valentino.

Well, in my earlier post I pointed out that as the Commonwealth is very important to the BRF it is always good PR for senior Royal females to wear some clothes and accessories from designers in the country they are touring.

And that doesn't just mean Canada, but New Zealand, Australia, countries in the Pacific and the Caribbean that are in the Commonwealth. It's not compulsory of course, but it generates good will.

..
Maybe the strength of the Commonwealth connections can be overlooked by some. However, as an Australian the Commonwealth is important to me. Anything that binds Britain and British representatives to this organisation, and the countries within it, however small the gesture, helps IMO.

It's pointless because it's the middle of the tour. And look, she wore Canadian designers today. I just think we should wait until the end of the tour before she's raked over the coals for not being good enough, that's all.

I don't think anyone's 'raking Kate over the coals'. What started this conversation off was a Canadian poster remarking that as she's a senior Royal on tour in an important Commonwealth country, it would be good to see Kate wearing some Canadian designer clothing. And I agree. It's a goodwill gesture if nothing else.

Seeing as how Kate has actually worn clothing by Canadian designers then why are people still carrying on about it?

Can't believe the Carolina Herrera coats buttons would be positioned that way, it must have been that they were altered as another suggested. Wish she had worn the scarf too. Love the shoes, I had the same pair in the seventies I'm sure!
The periwinkle blue belted sweater is a real winner. It is perfect for kate as the fabric and the belt add weight but I'm afraid we mortals would look like roly poly in it.

Catherines change for the second outfit was really nice.

I really don't like the combination, the coat is lovely and also very elegante /too polite to be wearing has a casual coat, those boots are awful and doesn't get along with the beautiful coat...

I think the sweater coat was casual and went well with the rest of the outfit.

I really like the coat, but the brown boots aren't good with it; why not black boots?

I love the coat, but I totally disliked that kind of jacket/bathcloth Kate wore afterwards.

Today's red coat is great. She looks amazing today.

It seems that you particularly enjoy having a go at posters who you dislike. This has nothing to do with Kate.

I've have loved alomst all of Kate's outfit so far, but imo she should stick with Canadian or British designers. At least, she should make that effort while on tour.

i am somehow not very impressed with today's looks. they are okay but nothing amazing IMO. the first days of the tour were more interesting from a fashion standpoint. she really rocked that blue outfit for her arrival and the red gala dress!

I quite like the dress...I'm pretending I don't see her shoes.

So far I liked everything she wore on this trip. She looks wonderful and very relaxed.
