Yes I too am curious why a headband is childish or wrong for the occasion. It seems a very practical way to keep your hair back from your face. Itís not as if it is covered with bows or ornamentation, just a simple headband .

I think, worn correctly, a headband can work very well on a mature woman. In the case of the DoC the band is set high and back on the crown of her head, not in the flat more foreward way schoolgirls tend to wear them.

Kate makes hers both regal and elegant. JMHO.

ETA: I agree with Zaira that the headband actually elevates the entire look. I don't find the dress remarkable at all.

Couldnít have put it better myself.

I wasnít aware you couldnít wear headbands past your younger years.

The dress is simple and elegant. Love the bateau on her.

Looks like her and Meghan swapped styles for the evening.


Sorry I am on the boat with the 'way too juvenile' headband. Its a Zara piece that any teenager would buy for the dance. They belong on teen and below, or adults going to costume parties.

Any ID on her designer?

The Duchess of Cambridge's Eveningwear Part 9: November 2018 -

I love the headband. It really completes the look. Adds something special. The dress is simple, classic, elegant, lovely neckline. The black belt accents the dress nicely.

I like the headband ...but the dress is meh. She looks fine of course just a bland dress.

She's had trouble with her hair in the past two events IMO. It's not working at all. The dress does what it's meant to do so that's good.

Not feeling that headband either. Or the dress. Not liking any of the dresses to be honest.

Hmm-I thought her hair at Thursdayís event was fabulous and I had serious hair envy.

Maybe Charlotte picked out the headband for her mum and Kate felt compelled to wear it for some "special" occasion like tonight. It's pretty and gives a bit of glitter to the whole look.

I'm with others, the headband looks fine but the dress is very underwhelming with it.

perfect. kate just doesn't disappoint. that dress is a dream, and i also love the headband.

is the dress blue? or black? what does protocol state on wearing blue to remembrance day events? i am sure she wouldn't have wore it if not appropriate, but i think i had not seen anyone else in blue.

i hope not - I just bought one to use through the holidays. I thought the headband was a very elegant way to elevate the look for a evening night out - the same way you would use velvet, satin and beading
