I like the style/shape...but the pattern hurts my eyes!

The whole country is in mourning today, she should have worn black.

I agree and I have always loved red check patterns so it's a good choice IMO.

Me either. Not sure I'd wear black to a mental health function. If they had declared an official day of mourning for the country then maybe so. I don't think canceling was an option either.

The Duchess of Cambridge looked lovely today just wasn't mad about the large black buttons.

Maybe black is not necessary, but IMO a more subdued look is called for today. It reminds me of when she wore a bright pink coat to the 9/11 memorial in NYC in (I think) 2015. Inappropriate IMO.

I strongly disagree. Britain suffered one of the worst terror attacks in it's history yesterday with many dead and wounded. She's a senior member of the British royal family so it was totally appropriate that she reflect this in her choice of clothing today. If not black then dark blue, gray or purple are among the colours she could have chosen.

that's silly. It was a visit to a memorial, not a memorial service. Not to mention, she was wearing a black dress underneath.

She used her speech today to mention the event, which was appropriate. Until the government calls for a time of mourning, there is no reason for Kate, at a event that is to lift people, should be dressing like she's personally mourning a friend. I think we should go about as usual, but also be mindful of what's happened. You can do so and still wear colors.

I think she's fine today, though I'm not a huge fan of the outfit.

I agree, a visit to a memorial does not warrant black.

Exactly. London in general seems to have taken the view that carrying on right now is the best to do. People had fun at the pub, the city is open! I doubt mourning or half-mourning clothing would be seen as appropriate.

Disagree with that too. Our Prime Minister has been in black since yesterday and our royal ladies should be too IMO.

No, black is not necessary, but neither is bright pink appropriate.

If not black, then at least more somber colors. I honestly expected more from the countess.

Quite right. We pay our respects, and we move on.

It's a beautiful spring day. I don't see many people on the streets of central London either in black or other sombre course. Let's not try and impose a false sense of sobriety on our royals.
