  1. The dress is lovely, but she must stop with forever having the 'clutch crutch' pose. Her posture is not good for this and it really shows an insecurity. Not elegant.

    1. I agree about the posture. She really needs to work on that and her walking. She is always stooped over sort of like she is trying to fold into herself.

    2. Just about all of them do this with the purse. It's keeps them balanced particularly in heels. And it keeps your arms from swinging around or hanging doing nothing.

      She looks lovely. Beautiful color

    3. Queen Letizia doesn't do it. She always has proper posture. Her back is straight, her shoulders are back, and she walks properly not stooped over.

    4. Karen Letizia us not so tall and so tiny in her frame. I think she purposely is ramrod stiff posture to make herself appear taller. She is the oven who really wears the tall heels always. It's funny how tall wants to be short and short wants to be tall Lol

  2. Stand up straight, Catherine! Take lessons from Queen Letizia of Spain. Goodness those round shoulders ruin her look!

  3. I agree with Contessa about the pose, makes me sick. But anyways...., the dress is lovely, great colour, only i do not like the zipp, i do not like zipps in designer dresses, makes it look cheap.

    1. I agree I don't like the visible zippers either, adds nothing to the design.

  4. I think she might stoop because she's trying to meet eye level with others, she's 5'10, with heels she probably clears 6'0 feet. In pictures she doesn't usually stoop with William or Harry. She could learn to correct it, but Pippa is almost half a foot shorter and so is her mother, maybe old habits die hard.

    1. I agree and was going to comment but you did it so yay! Yes she is tall add 4-5 inch heels and she is really towering over most. I also think that because she is so slender that it is more noticeable.

    2. I also wrote a similar comment few weeks ago. She is tall and in order to improve her posture she shouldn't choose such heels. 6,7 cm heel would be enough to look elegant.

  6. You girls do realise that when you have heels on you back automatically stretches into the right position . So the "fault" you see maybe she can't do anything about? The purse..one question to the gals: why doesn't anyone complaine when we see the men of the Windsor goes like this or Sophie, Anne? This is a Windsor trade they all hold their hands in front of them like this, but strangely enough these comments only comes when we take about Kate. Who I must say look smashing, great blue color on her and I like the zip gives the dress a cool factor.

    1. The majority of the comments on this site shows how much they despise the British Royal Family, everything&everyone are perfect & amazing when it comes to other European families but when it's Kate they have a mission to bash her and critisize her in a very cruel way

      Delete
    2. Agreed. This site is very anti BRF. Jealousy runs deep here. It's not attractive. All of these families bring something to the table that we can all like. I do not understand the extreme dislike of Kate. It's clearly out of jealousy. Look it's not her fault that she married into the most widely known royal family. They are front and center. Don't blame them personally. If you take a picture of Kate and a picture of Maxima, Mathilde, Victoria, etc etc and show it to the masses Kate will overwhelming be the one they know. It's the nature of the media in Britain and the US. I was talking about Letizia here at work last week and no one knew who she was. Mind you we are all doctors, nurses and Lawyers. Worldly people but they had no idea. Now Kate? They all know. But again it's not her fault and no amount of bashing and ugly remarks is going to change that fact and make your favorite the one that everyone talks about.

      I am here because I want to know about all of them. But I don't think we should ever bash any of them.

      Class is a simple thing folks.

    3. Indeed, this is not bashing the British Royal family nor jealously - they are a wonderful family. These are small comments about Kate and her posture and clutch pose, Prince William has the identical hands in front pose. It is becoming rather a 'tired' and closed look. They are clearly trained to do this. Other Royal houses of Europe don't really do this often. Walking is done with arms by the side. Pictures with arms by the side. One does not need to be stiff or tall, heals or not, to walk in an open, elegant manner. Kate is doing an exceptional job, the rest will come with time.

    4. Well said Diane. Catherine is not any professional model who need to fill out all posture requests people may have. These ladies do all the same purse thing and Catherine is the very only one who gets critique every single time.


      I like Scandinavian royal most because I am Scandinavian, Finnish, myself. But I do not understand at all this critique Catherine gets every time we see her pictures. It is just so unfair when she does her best and really nothing wrong. Posture makes people "sick" or gets "creeps", really? You must all look out like super models yourself. LOL

      About her dress; I like it other ways but not the zipper thing, although I know it is fashionable.

    1. Nancy when you post nasty and uncalled for comments, it makes me think, you need 'time out on the naughty step' !

    2. Nancy you are such a troll. You give me the creeps each time I see your name. Let's see what you look like? Go on then... how are you aging?

      Kate is in better shape that 99%of the public so stick that in your ugly hat.

      We should just ignore this person Annabel

      Delete
    3. If you should ignore Annabel, why don't you do that? It's really hard to ignore opinions opposite to yours, isn't it?
      Be careful with your childish insults, there's no point being so rude to people you don't even know.
      In many countries, especially mine, people worship Kate. She has good style, but in my opinion, she lacks warmth and character that some royals have. Her posture IS bad and she IS skinny, as many people say, but I think she ages well.

  8. Love the colour ! And the dress has a 'sassy' look to it ! I think the clutching of the bag, maybe a confidence thing, but as she gains confidence, and feels more comfortable in her role, that'll pass !

  9. Duchess Catherine is not 5'10 she is 5'7, Queen Mathilde is 5'10, Queen Maxima is 5'10.Michelle Obama is 6'0, Princess Charlene is 5'10. All theses women are taller than the Duchess, they normally wear shorter heels and they have great posture. But even when they do wear higher heels, they stand up straight. She just has horrible posture.

    1. Duchess Kate is 175 cm tall.

    2. Mary is 1.75 so is Mathilde, Mette-Marit is 1.80 and they all have just as high shoes.

      Delete
    3. She is 5'10" ... Google it or pick up a book . She is very tall

      Delete
    4. Google it all you want she is not 1.78cm she is 1.70cm! You will be disappointed when you see her live. If she is 5'10 why is she considerably shorter than Michelle Obama? The most recent picture when the Obamas were round for dinner, you could see Kate is a shorter. Uma Thurman towered over Kate when they met, google it! This is not bashing Kate she is not very tall, she just has bad posture! Even Charlotte on the Duchess Kate Blog confirmed that she is not 5'10.

    5. So 5'9 that is still tall.

      I read 20 different sites and it was split down the middle between the two. So only Kate knows Lol

      She is tall.

  10. I just smile reading all the bashing comments aimed at the Duchess of Cambridge. All the negative and bashing comments is just hypocrites. All the other royal ladies do exactly the same thing. They are praised, but the Duchess of Cambridge is always wrong. The Duchess looked beautiful, stylish and the dress as well as the colour fits her to the T. Nothing wrong with her posture. She stands straight when required and bent forward showing respect and interest to people she is talking too. Even the Danish and Swedish Royal ladies are doing it.

  11. A friend of mine, a psychiatrist, said after their wedding in 2011 :Did you see the kiss on the balcony? P William had his hands in a front pose while kissing Kate.
    Typical shrinks,they have to analyze everything.
    But this is a sort of polite pose that royalties often have, I said. He didn't believe that..
