I agree. She looks perfect for the event.

She has her usual nautical theme for nautical event going but over dressed.

It's disappointing. Her formal looks are hit and miss for me, often matronly. I usually love her casual clothes as she manages to look appropriate while still her age. Some of her top looks on tours are her casual looks. Unfortunately back home, she seems to think she needs to be formal even for casual events.

The top and blazer are great. I hope we see them again

But that said they are too tailored and business like for casual sailing day. I'd love to see with a nice printed a line skirt and accessories for a more formal day event. Would look great with a skirt with a pop of color and chunky necklace.

The pants would be great but are too tight. If they were skinny jeans it would be one thing. Not a fan of skinny jeans but she has the body to wear them. skinny jeans are made to fit, so if you have the body for them, they are like leggings and you don't look squeezed in. These are clam diggers, they aren't designed to be skinny jeans, why lower legs are loose. These would be fantastic if size bigger.

Shoes are nice but totally wrong. Nude doesn't go with look. And again doesn't fit casual event.

Would love pants a size bigger. And something like the striped top she wore in Australia for a similar boating event. And either a cute pair of boat shoes or even converse. Would look great with ponytail, to show off earrings.

I don't know why we are surprised that the trousers are a bit too snug, that is how she prefers her trousers.

Actually, I think everything could have done with being half or a full size bigger. As for the shoes? They are a total mystery. The colour matches or compliments nothing else she is wearing, the heels are odd, and really a nice pair of deck shoes would have done nicely.

To those who think her tour wardrobe does classy casual better than her home wardrobe, I would have to agree. In spades!

Her famous striped top, seen private and on tour

And her boat shoes we saw in Canada

With these pants a size bigger . Would have been much better IMO.

I love Catherine appearance today. This has been an appearance I have been waiting for for a while. The color is smashing on her, the design and fit is perfect and the hat is great! Ive always wanted to see Catherine in such a color of outfit and hat.

Love the 'crushed Raspberry' Colour, but dislike the pleated neckline and [especially] the Hat

I love the colour, vibrant pink. The hat is very pretty, also. I think the colour suits Kate.

Great bubblegum pink color on her. The hat looks good too, really like the different shades in it. Best updo ever, shows the earrings, neckline and is flattering to her face. A winner!

I love this dress. The bright pink really suits her. The pleats at the top make the dress more interesting.

Her hair is just beautiful.

Perfect IMO! She looked absolutely great today. I love the colour of the dress, and I agree, it really suits her. I also like her hairstyle. Would like to see the shoes or rather a picture of the complete outfit.
