    1. I agree. I do not mean to criticize, but the skirt looks old fashioned and her hairstyle makes her look old.

  2. Sie hält sich mit diesem Outfit eben dezent im Hintergrund. Finde ich gut.

    1. Sehe ich auch so.Passend zum Anlass.
      Außerdem ist das englische Protokoll sehr sehr konservativ.
      Frisur und Hut finde ich klasse!

    1. She was at a memorial service for a war - she was dressed appropriately.

    2. No kidding! I'm an over-60 grandma and even I wouldn't dress like Kate usually does, especially on this occasion.

    3. Mathilde? Who have always looked 20 years older than she is. And no matter what you old ladys think this is high fashion.

  5. Vous êtes sévères , Kate s'habille différemment quand elle est en représentation avec la reine et quand elle est seule .Elle ne peut pas attirer l'attention sur elle si la reine est présente.Aujourd'hui c'était une cérémonie religieuse,elle a une tenue sobre .Il y aura bientôt une sortie avec une tenue flamboyante.

  6. This ensemble makes her look old and color not good on her. Skirt too long and looks out of fashion. Her hairstyle is an old ladies' hairdo.

    1. Black is terrible color to Catherine when used near face, it takes all her own colors away and makes her look very tired.

      But in other hand this situation was not a place to look cheerful and take attention from the Queen. So in that aspect Catherine had very proper clothes.

  7. Oh, nein, die komplette Middleton-Familie!!! Als ob sie auch ins Königshaus eingezogen wären. So was von Medienverliebt. Keine andere Familie sieht man so oft. Wann haben wir zuletzt Maximas Verwandtschaft gesehen oder die von Daniel?

    1. Ich verstehe das auch nicht, warum Mommy Dearest so oft auf der royalen Bildfläche erscheint? Das ist einfach nervig. Vielleicht "part of the game"?

      OR ... maybe they were there because they were invited! By the Queen.

  8. QEII is elegant as usual. Kate looks very good for this occasion and also elegant.
    By the way, why are the Middletons there?

    2. The Middleton were there because the Church is open to the public and they were not there with the Royal Family.

  9. Ach ja, und William hat ganz schön viel Haar verloren in den letzten Wochen/Monaten. Auf den Bilder sieht man das jetzt gut.

    The Queen has invited the whole family.Wisdom is a gift of age. She is the first high noble, who has understood that honesty also means respect for all, who are the family. Hats off.

  11. Prince William and Kate Middleton make an unexpected appearance at a ceremony marking 100 years since the end of the Gallipoli campaign. The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh, who is patron of the Gallipoli Association, stood still as the Last Post was played by a bugler and a minute's silence was observed. Then, with solemnity and quiet dignity, the Queen and Duke each placed a wreath at the war memorial dedicated to local men who fought in the Great War and paid the ultimate sacrifice.

  12. I thought she cut her hair? her hair down would be just fine in this occasion. I have said this before and will again, that the pencil skirt would look just fine on her, why did she feel like she should flare it is beyond me.

  13. and another thing, why is middleton family in this?

  14. I really, really like Kate's ensemble. I think the skirt is lovely it shows off her very slim figure beautifully. I am also pleased she has done something with her hair. She has lovely hair, but usually she seems to spend most of the time pushing it away from her face.

    I don't believe it is the outfit that is aging Kate, personally I believe it is her makeup. While she is still a relatively young woman (and I know if this comment is published I will get a backlash) she isn't aging well (too much time in the sun perhaps?), also less is more as a woman ages. I think she needs to take a lighter hand withe her makeup. Less black and more softer, subtle colours.

    As for the Middleton Family I would imagine they were in attendance because the Queen invited them. Kate and William are obviously close to Kate's family and after everything Diana went through the Queen may well be doing everything she can to make sure Kate feels welcome and supported and that may mean including and welcoming Kate's family to some events/functions. The are a future Royal Heirs Grandparents!

    2. Dressing much more older than her age is not class, it's poor fashion taste espzcially when you have the money and people you pay to look good.

  17. I don't like the skirt , the hair style and the hat are ok . Kate looks a bit old because of the grempy face , so keep smilling to look fresh

    On parle toujours de la tenue des dames mais je trouve que William porte des pantalons trop courts et il est aussi chauve que son grand-père.Plus trop sexi .

  22. ...old fashion...she needs a stylist NOW!!!

  23. Carole looks younger than Kate... Sorry:(

  24. The poor duchess, always criticism. Her suite is the latest fashion. It is winter and very cold. Its the Duchess choice what she wants to wear. She is not a carbon copy from other Royal Houses ladies of Europe and elsewhere. It was her birthday and like any normal family will do and you are blessed to still have your parents, they visited the Duchess for her birthday. Do study the history of Gallipoli. The Duchess dressed for the occasion. A bright colour outfit would not have been appropriated for the ceremony. Duchess will always be beautiful and a stylish icon.

    2. I don't agree,there are a lot of positive comments-Personally I don't think they are a normal family,they are Royals and represent the Nation.
      I don't like her fashion style,but I respect the other opinions.Please,let's be more tolerant:)

      This is the prob with suede boots, but of course you CAN clean them and proof them with a spray afterwards. Kate's suede boots/shoes etc. always look worn and old which destroys the whole look.

  25. Kate tries not to look "eternally young" as Mary, Letizia and Rania (mid-40s) !!!
    A very classic Princess.

    1. But Kate looks in her mid 40 perhaps she should do as the rest Maxima and Mathilde have skin peels and botox and they all look younger than her.

    2. No, she shouldn't do that. I think it's not easy to be the Duchess of Cambridge. It's stress no matter how much advantage this title brings as for lifestyle and wealth. It's a demanding job despite all her 24/7 staff. I think she looks ok, she has never been a beauty. She's ok.

      Delete
    3. I agree, Anonymous 22:43. I have never understood why the Duchess is so poorly styled and groomed. She has never seemed to me to be holding up well to her lifestyle - often appearing tired, thin, weak, listless and disinterested. She has not seemed to take advantage of her opportunities for personal growth or setting a positive tone in leadership for the public. She still seems to be an outsider in the royal family for whatever reason, wishing to hold fast to her Middleton identity instead. Obviously she will be criticized, it's part of public life (and any life, frankly), but she doesn't seem interested in taking charge of her public image. Showing some warmth and sincerity would go a long way in her favor.

  27. Her outfit is beautiful but her bad posture ruins everything !!

      That's true and I wonder why? I think her heels are way too high, with a certain height it is almost impossible to walk gracefully. This and the way she holds her clutch while walking. It's so unnatural to carry a clutch this way and maybe this all together causes a bad posture and prevents normal movements.
