    3. I think she looked beautiful. I don't like the collar on the dress but the rest is tres chic. She was obviously going for a vintage look. Yesterday at the sunset service she tossed in the pillbox hat....another vintage look. I like how she often adds a detail for the event. I love the hat too. She looked very beautiful.

  3. Your first paragraph makes referece to Prince Charles' presence. To my knowledge, Prince Charles was not present at this solemn ceremony, but back home in the UK.

  6. I normally don't like to leave negative comments, however Kate's ensemble is one of the worst I have ever seen her wear. It is horrid!

    Camilla is dress in a much more appropriate style and colour.

  7. Wearing all those medals in civilian clothes look kind of funny. I am sure it is permissible but still I prefer medals on uniforms.

  8. Tenue de Kate qui n'est pas laide en soi mais qui est trop longue et lui donne inutilement et précocement un air trop vieux!

  9. Its me and sue. Once again stupid comments. The duchess was dressed for the occasion, suitable to fit in with what happen 100 years ago. Do you know what happen? The Duchess is the best dress lady ever. But when you have two brain cells it is difficult to give recognition to a beautiful lady.

  10. IF you wish to make Katherine a Princess, please do it correctly! She would be addressed as Princess William of Cambridge.

    Re:her dress. It is beautiful, but she will never be a style icon like Diana, Princess Of Wales was. She tends to play it safe, except when she should. This was the rare exception. Nice to see her in a longer, fitted skirt and not giving everyone an eyeful.
