Think you are right about the hair and I would have preferred todayís updo myself. Canít see the earrings. Perfect princess flattering dress

I'm waiting for a better look at those earrings too. And the dress is very very nice.

The dress looks so pretty on Catherine. It's wide neckline, I think, looks better with flowing hair and could have been improved with jewellery at the neck.

Last time Catherine wore the dress with a shawl and an updo and her earrings were visible and bright.

Belle, Elsa/Anna, Snow white, Jasmine, Mulan, Cinderella...Ö. Really the only ones known for flowing hair except Rapunzel (and even hers is tied back at times) are Pochahontas and Sleeping Beauty, oh and Ariel.

Kate wore her hair down with the gown because she wanted to. Just like she does a lot of the time with beautiful gowns that need a good updo.

She was once told 'I thought princesses wore tiaras'. If she really wanted to give the girls a 'princess experience' she'd have worn some hair jewels.

It's beautiful. I am assuming she didn't want to look too formal with an updo.

She is in a glittery ball gown. Not sure an updo would make it more formal then it already is.



The major downside to her hair down is you cant see the earrings. I always find the dresses she has either the best earrings, or an amazing neckline, or both which you'd want to show off, she hides with her hair down. Which is a shame.

So happy that she has worn this gown again. A beautiful colour and material which must look stunning to see for real.

Yes - Kate repeated a dress that I have long hoped we would see again as its beautiful. She looked amazing, the blue is stunning on her

Was not a fan of this gown the first time she wore it. Great color but I don't care for the style.

Beautiful dress; if she needs someone to donate it to, I'd be happy to receive it.

The color is divine, the cut if the dress is simple but lovely... The Duchess looks nice
