Like this look very much. And for someone who has sat on a plane for nearly 5 hours, she looks amazing!

A nice look, but needs a necklace. The charm necklace would be perfect.

The outfit was smart casual for the event but I thought the duchess puled it off well.

Loving both of her outfits over the last couple of days! They both looked wonderfully appropriate, fit beautifully, and were really well done. I do agree that she could have used a long necklace with today's outfit...perhaps the one with the rings that we saw with the blue dress around the time of the Olympics? Overall, though, beautifully done both days.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the red tartan outfit, earrings and all. 10/10. And I rarely say that with Catherine's clothes.

Liked the green jacket, and the trousers.

Catherine in red tartan looked perfect for the event.
However, I felt the cardigan was a smidge too short - in the body and the sleeve.
(Unless the dress code was Kitsch Christmas.)
I was nervous, expecting to see her belly button when she stretched!! hahahe

Loved the snow. It looked fun for the kids.

I adore this pants look with olive blazer and white tee for a day with active duty troops and families. Spot on for tone and fitting in. Sometimes you want to be part of the gang - and I think this was what she/they were going for. Brava!

I also think the hair was an excellent choice as there was no touching/fussing as the day wore on.

I like how this couple are doing their job.

Lovely to see the Smythe Duchess Blazer again. Yes, this outfit isn't one we've come to expect from Kate, but that's why I love it. It's good to experiment from time to time and I think she hit it out of the park with this one.

I'm not an accessories person either, so I don't mind the lack thereof.

The dress is fine. Is it my monitor or are the bag/shoes olive? If so, I am not a fan. If they are just photographing not brown, then Wills wore bathing brown suede shoes, I think.

And, no engagement ring? Just the wedding band? If so, I am on record as saying this is just fine. JMO, of course, but a woman should not have to wear a heavy sapphire every time she appears in public.

Oh I quite like that dress...the last time she went to a hospital (maybe this one) she did not wear her rings...it was said at the time this was due to infection etc.

I like the dress, (although it seems very high waisted-empire?) I always like L.K. Bennett on Kate.
The purse and shoes appear to be the same olive ones she wore in Cyprus. Maybe in person they look better with the dress, they clash in photographs. IMO, the greens do not compliment each other.

I think I see her enagagement ring, it seems turned on her finger.
ETA: I’ve seen other photos now, the Duchess is wearing her engagement ring.

I think the dress, although appropriate, is just blah.
But I do like to see Kate wearing clothing from the High Street.

That dress is one I'd love to have for myself. Its one of those daytime dresses that would appropriate to wear just about anywhere.

It's a pretty dress, and the contrasting shoes and clutch don't bother me--it all kind of blends. It's nothing special, but it's appropriate for the engagement, which sometimes is a good thing in and of itself. The focus stays on the patronage rather than what the Duchess wore, so a win all around.
