It looks a bit too 'British Airways' for me. If she'd worn one of her green coats instead of the navy, she'd have been in the Welsh colours of red, green & white - the locals would like that.

Were any of the designers from Wales?

Zara dress
Beaulah scarf
Hobbs coat
Mulberry clutch
Asprey Oak Leaf Earrings
Daniella Draper pendant necklace

No. Besides Zara, they are all English brands not Welsh.

Rarely a fan of her double breasted coats and agree this one looks to be pulling on her. I love scarves but I don’t think this one goes at all with the coat. I agree with the comment she looks like a flight attendant.

Wish she had worn one of her other blue coats as this one is not flattering.

That's it! I couldn't put my finger on what it reminded me of, but you've hit the nail on the head. I disagree on the flag thing, there are certain events it works for and certain ones it doesn't.

Why specify Welsh designers? All designers except for Zara are British based companies. Laura Ashley would be on the only one possible to wear an outfit from, David Emmanuel would definitely be a no go.

Yes, this made me smile. I am not a fan of the scarf, but so pleased to see that she is wearing one at all. I like the navy coat. It seems a very practical and comfy choice, perhaps something she has worn outside the public gaze.

She'd have also looked like a Christmas tree.

The navy and red & white have a little bit of a Union Jack vibe.

The coat and scarf are perfectly fine for an outdoor engagement on an early February's day the scarf adds a nice splash of colour.

I agree with the poster who said Catherine's outfit with the coat looks a little like a cabin crew's outfit, but I do rather like the pieces separately; especially the dress. That colour is great on her.

I just wondered if there were any known Welsh designers....curious more than anything. I don't know where most of those designers were from.

I really like her red scarf with the hearts on it. Nice pop of color and festive. The red dress is lovely.

Very nice outfit.love the scarf and wish sh would wear more. And hooray for the normal sized heel on the boot.she is tall and doesn’t need more height. Also seems more balanced with the longer coat. Perfect hair and earrings for her role and the occasion

There certainly are other welsh designers beyond Emmanuel and Laura Ashley. But no Kate isn’t wearing any.

The fact someone actually said there are only two Welsh designers to choose from is more reason would be nice to see in future.

To add to the largely positive comments about yesterday’s appearance, this was an extremely well judged outfit and hairstyle. The day was exceptionally windy and the varied engagements made several demands on how the Duchess would look. A trawl through the many photos and videos indicate just how polished and accomplished appearance this was.

Some other Welsh fashion designers-
Xander Kostroma does accessories-a definite possibility
Julien Macdonald is too high fashion for everyday wear
Timothy Everest does men’s clothing
Mary Quant no longer designs clothing
Lucy Jones designs for the disabled community-that could be interesting, but she’s based in NYC
Jeff Banks does menswear and home goods these days

I don't like that.
Reminds me of one of the Salvation Army costumes from GUYS AND DOLLS.
