  1. Pretty if a bit autumnal - but then it is a bit autumnal at the moment. I like the colours and print of the fabric.

    1. Agree.
      The do not look like "The Team" they used to be.
      Cathrine is not in the midposition.
      Good luck Harry !!

  3. Wow, this is a stunning look: walking straight and tall, hair trimmed or thinned so it isn't hiding her face, and her dress is just perfect in color, pattern, length and fit. Impressive and a good lesson for some prominent women featured in this blog.

  4. Beautiful pictures! As if they were taken from an english movie, especially with the rain... ;-)
    A wonderful Dress for Catherine!

  5. I don´t like her look at all. Ages her tremendously. This is not a dress for a young woman in 2017. Looks more like what a 65 year old lady would wear in the 70s. The colours and the print do nothing for her.
    I´m officially over neck-bows, long sleeve dresses in summer, dated-looking floral frocks, midi-length skirts or dresses. Please, ladies (Kate & Victoria in particular), stop wearing stuff that looks like straight from a second-hand shop.

    1. Well Vanessa it takes all sorts! Isn't it lucky that we all have individual opinions; it makes for a far more interesting world.... I simply LOVE her look here.

    2. Agreed, if she was trying to look retro, she succeeded. This outfit looks like something out of my mother's closet.

    4. I agree! Catherine in herself looks quite nice in these photos, however, I don't believe her dress is age appropriate. I feel this dress would have suited my Grandmother when she was alive, over twenty years ago.

      It would be nice to see Catherine take a leaf out of Letizia or Mary's book and wear something youthful and less stuffy, but still elegant.

    5. Yet she's bang up to date with this look - these types of dresses keep appearing in all the magazines here. Just goes to show that everything comes back into fashion at some point - nothing is original. :-)

    6. "Everything comes back into Fashion at some point" - so true, Franny! So if your cellar is big enough, store your things, your daughter might be thankful one day ;-)

  6. It is an appropriate dress for the sad occasion. It was raining and chilly in London, hence the long sleeves. And what is wrong with not trying to look younger, as Mrs Macron attempts to do? She is a good role model for women.

  7. What a beautifully romantic dress for a walk in a rainy garden. I love the long sleeves and waist detail. The colors are also perfect for Catherine--green and warmer coral tones. The only thing I could have done without are the nude heels again.

  8. This should not be a fashion comment on a dress. This is the remembrance of the Princess of People. The Duchess to my opinion is appropriate dress for the occasion. She did not want the spotlight on her, but on the memory of her mother-in-law. The dress match beautiful the wonderful white garden in the memory of Princess Diana.

  11. Oh non! Je n'aime pas ce look beaucoup trop vieillot pour elle.

  12. Come on, people, she is not 22 but 35. So she is not a 'young woman' any more. Sometimes commenters sound like they aren't aware of her age. At her age many of us were finishing raising young children and were working many hard hours in advanced careers. Princess Diana was 36 when she died and her children were mid-teenagers.

    1. Couldn't agree more. This dress is very appropriate from several perspectives (occasion and age included). 35 is young but not the same as 25. And even at 25, tightly fit outfits, or short hemlines aren't necessarily appropriate (unless one makes a living from modelling, but even those 25 year olds know better these days).

      Having said that, I don't particularly fancy this outfit. It's very appropriate, but I am completely indifferent to it. It could have worked equally well on a 55 year old, and actually come to think of it, possibly Carole Middleton wouldn't wear it at age 60...

  13. Just reading the following about the Duchess dress. Poppy flower print means PEACE IN DEATH. Duchess show respect to her husband, brother-in-law and Princess Diana.

  14. Será Prada, pero es un vestido de abuela, ñoño hasta decir basta. Pudo haberlo usado Diana en sus primeros días de Princesa. Meh.
