I love the material, I love the jacket/bodice ...but I am not at all a fan of that short skirt on her. It throws her porportions all off.

I like her choice of shoe better this time around as well...at least from this one angle it looks like a different shoe!

I prefer the shorter skirts to that mid-length she is so fond of.

I enjoy when she wears something a bit more kicky and fun. I get it that she has decided to dress like a future queen, but she's not that age or station yet. This frankly made me smile because it is updated. I need smiles these days. It may be unfair of me to rely on royalty to amuse me, but it is PART of the reason I bother to follow. A small lift is a boon. JMO.

I like this suit, and I like the shorter skirt in this case. However, I think we are also seeing why shorter, flippy skirts are not necessarily a wise decision, and why perhaps Catherine wears them so seldom. She had a close call, handled it perfectly, but there is a reason why we don't see them often, and my guess is today was a perfect demonstration of that.

No, but that is three years of clothing that she won't wear much or at all, so really it is fewer than 9 years of clothing. And even those first couple years they did limited engagements while William was still full time military in Anglesey.

There can be a happy medium. Her skirt lengths look best at the knee or mid calf IMO

Even so that is still at least about 4 to 5 years total of daytime looks that we have seen and who knows what we haven't seen that was worn on private engagements.

I don't mind it when she wears new items...I just like to see the older ones from several years ago too. Although I do get bored with coat dresses.

I like the jacket and design just wish the skirt was a little longer.

I like this suit and agree it has a younger spirit to it. The shape of the skirt suits the length . I think it would have looked a little dowdy if it had been lengthened.

I don't care for the fringe on the skirt and the jacket. I also think it is a shame that after 9 years she hasn't learned not to wear a full skirt on a windy day.

I love this on Catherine & the length is fine for her age & figure - glad she's wearing it again but it needs a weighted hem :)

Catherine looks great. The length is fine and looks better with tights (though she wouldn't be able to wear the dress without tights in the cold weather London is having at the moment!).

I agree with knee length or just above, but mid calf no. I find her lengths below the knee always hit at an awkward point and are not flattering.


I love this suit. Dolce and Gabana but at least getting a few uses. A bit more modern then many of her day looks. Could use the pieces apart as well, to get more use. Like the buttons and fabric.

The shoes are her Rossi pumps she often wears. Jewelry are repeats too.

I like the colour of the coat, but I always like to see a coat fastened to get a real sense of the fit and style.

I'd wear that coat & I'm her mother's age. My daughter would wear it too. It's a classic cut, suitable for anyone & the teal colour is lovely. I'm seriously coveting that coat!
