  1. At a first glance the white ensemble looked a bit pyjama-like, but after having seen it at full length I think it is absolutely stunning, and the match with the sporty shoes gives it a nice twist. The green ensemble is feminine and we know that green fits Katherine so well. Actually, I would like to dress this way myself, it looks chic and comfortable.

    2. Can the stylist of Kate come to the Netherlands to give some advice to our lovely Queen? I think all the clothes of Kate in Pakistan are superb. So chique and royal.

  5. Cant beat this. Both outfits are beautiful and Kate looks absolutely stunning in both.
    The white one looks so clean and fresh and comfortable I wouldn't be surprised if she got more use of it again in part or in whole, publicly or privately. And the design, structure and drapery of the second is perfection itself for how that particular traditional outfit should look and be worn. The shawl, after its primary religious purpose, serves to frame Kates beautiful face extraordinarily. Well done!

  6. I love both outfits. D. Catherine radiates confidence these days and that’s wonderful to see. I think even her posture is improving. (V.M.)

  7. I am so dissapointed in Kate's clothing this tour. Kate is a British woman and she is representing Britain so why is she every day dresses as a Pakistani woman? I am absolutely fine with making a gesture to your host in traditional clothing but you can do that one time, after that go back to your roots. I realy do not understand why it is nessceary what Kate is doing. She can dress in a modified way according to the country's rules but that's it.

      Agree, but I have to say that Kate looks wonderful in these clothes.

    2. Agree completely

    3. Iris,je vous approuve .On n’a jamais vu un Royal se déguiser ainsi .

    4. Iris, I was wondering too, why she looked like a Pakistani woman every single day. That's a tad too much for my liking. Frieda

    5. I kind of get what you mean

    6. i'm agree with you

    7. Well, that's your opinion, I as the rest of the commenters, am amazed at the beauty she had display. Elegant, good colors and fitting for her fugue and very respectful to the culture she is visiting.
      I'm not a royal, however I also "do the same" change my wardrobe to the destination I'm visiting. Alas never so exquisitely as she had done it, but doesn't mean I loos my roots

    8. The british government asked the royals to go there to make the relationship between the countries better. I guess, that's the reason for identifying a lot with the countries traditions and style.

    9. I agree. One or two could be a nice nod, but this is too much. - Siri

    10. Le respect des coutumes du Pakistan.
      On se doit deja en tant que touriste de respecter le Pays que l'ont visite.
      Normal qu'elle soit vêtu comme si depuis le début de cette tournée royal.

    11. I agree with you. And why isn't William wearing traditional clothes as well?

      Delete
    12. At long last someone has been brave enough to say it! Respecting local customs and beliefs doesn't mean that foreign heads of state or their repesentatives must wear kimono when visiting Japan, djellaba when visiting Morocco or sarong when visiting Indonesia. The two times that Queen EII visited Pakistan se dressed herself all the time as the Queen of the United Kingdom, not as a Pakistani lady. An official visit is not a costume party.

      Can't say I subscribe to your thinking Iris. As you will know if you have travelled to modern Britain, after more than 50 years of accelerated globalization and migration, you will see plenty of female British citizens dressed in these styles today. They also represent Britain.

    14. Yes she is Bitish but demonstrates that she can beautifully adapt to other styles and particularly oriental one. Such a pleasure for the eyes. There are plenty of occasions where we can see her "British like".

      Delete
    15. can I add: the Qn and Catherine cannot be compared, sorry. Other times, other objectives : the Queen always represented traditions, while they want to appear closer to local people, display adaptability, be future oriented etc... Well done Cath & William.

    16. The people of Pakistan have appreciated her nod to their style. Pakistanis know she is British. That is obvious, but her choice of clothing has been respectful, beautiful, and appreciated. It is their opinion that matters.

  8. Kate's outfits are perfect for the occasion, and she and William are the epitome of grace.

  9. However, i liked the green sequined dress.

  10. Great to see how much fun Kate has when she plays cricket. I hope she played in a team against William and I hope, she won xD :-D

    The outfit for the mosque is wonderful, that green-turquoise with gold is very beautiful and suit her perfect

  11. Two beautiful outfits, she looks so beautiful and serene in the pictures with the scarve.

  12. Einfach perfekt!

    Kate sieht in dem weißen Outfit dem Anlass entsprechend wunderbar aus, aber noch schöner find ich ihre Garderobe auf den unteren Fotos.
    Bilder für die Ewigkeit.
    Der Herzog und die Herzogin machen ihre Sache super und Gott sei Dank tragen sie die traditionelle Tracht des Landes.
    Ich bin froh, dass die beiden das Gastgeberland dadurch ehren.
    Ein Kleid oder Kostüm welches Kate in England tragen würde wäre hier nicht die richtige Wahl.

  13. Gorgeous outfits. Not normally a fan of white (except for brides) but this is lovely. The turquoise is superb. I have to disagree with you, Iris. Apart from the necessarily serviceable clothes yesterday, I have just loved every outfit on this tour.

  14. I am not sure how exactly the royals decide how to dress on these tours. I do know that a lot of background work is done as far as customs, meals, meetings, security, transportation, activities, as well as extensive background on all places and people that they will meet. Both William and Catherine will attend these meetings and then some meetings are probably done between staffers. But I am sure that clothing is a part of all of this. What to wear where. Basically, if Catherine is wearing clothes that are particular to a certain country and custom, it was planned. Either by British designers or designers from the country they are visiting. And some of it might be out of respect also. I am enjoying her different looks. And I haven't seen a bad one yet. William is also doing well with his wardrobe. They are a fabulous couple!!! Jean

  15. I would say she nailed it. These outfits are great and so is she. She represents the UK well.The only thing I would say Prince William should have worn a blazer, he looks a little to casual?.

  16. Ridículo, vestirse continuamente al estilo de ese país. Todo la sienta muy bien porque es joven y guapa. Tanto querer quedar bien empalaga.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I think she looks drop dead gorgeous,and I do like when people show respect and admiration to other cultures, I however agree somewhat with Iris, I am thinking that maybe it's a little too much... I also wonder if any other Royal would have chosen to do the same, if it would have been received with such enthusiasm.. not being negative, I just get a feeling of too much staging.

  18. Ok people are entitled to their opinions but if Kate wore her regular style that she usually wears in the UK in Pakistan many of you on here would've criticized her for not trying local designers. Also Princess Diana and many other royal ladies have worn local designers while they were on their royal visits to different countries. Looks like some of you just love drama and make up fake controversies.

  19. Iris, does she really dress "every day like a Pakistan woman"? What about the more casual outfit on oct 16th and that wonderful green evening-gown on oct 15th? Is that so "Pakistan"? (I am not critizing you, Iris, everybody is entitled to their opinion, I just ask questions.)

    1. I was just about to say that. Also the green coat by Catherine Walker with white trousers is kind of a mix of both Pakistani and British style both.

  20. Dejé un comentario comentando que no me parecía bien que vistiera todo el tiempo con esos trajes , me parece demasiado. No sé porque no me lo aprobaron. Ella está guapa con cualquier cosa pero la están usando descaradamente para atraer la atención y ganarse el personal.
    Todas las royals hacen un guiño al país que visitan pero no todo el tiempo.

  21. The embroidery on the white outfit is glorious. The outfit she wore to the mosque was stunning against the backdrop of her surroundings the colour of her outfit really worked in well. The gold trim detailing was stunning.
