  1. How nice!
    Her hair, the beautifull suit and her attitude towards the children: everything impressive.

    2. Kate is everything and more Princess Diana could have wanted. Kate makes every child portrait look so great.

  2. She should hold her hair back more often, she looks very beautiful 💙
    The tweed jacket looks great but the skirt hand it down to Charlotte.

    2. Agreed! So much better without hair taking away from her pretty face. Also agreed on the skirt situation. Not that it was an unknown factor, there was wind in the forecast for several days. Time to grow up.

    4. While I felt the skirt was a little short by a couple of inches to my eye- she looks beautiful and can certainly pull it off, but I liked the length of the Paris tweed in front of the Eiffel Tower from before. I just feel this length skirt and the skinny jeans seem a bit young- but never do I ever see her and think grow up?!?! Too often lately people have felt she is dressing too old (midi, pussy now). Late thirties are a bit tricky that way re:fashion but there are many option out there.

    5. Pussy bow!! Oh dear that is the second time my post has been quite ridiculous due to an unhelpful spelling aide. Sorry about that:). I will really triple check my posts.

  3. Ce blazer en tweed au joli boutonnage est porté à merveille par Kate ; par contre, je suis moins fan de la jupe... J'adore ses boucles d'oreilles de "Mappin & Webb" portées assez souvent ; il me semble voir un médaillon du même style !

  4. I'm loving how animated she is these days. Love the half up style, great for this active, fantastic engagement. One of my favorite pairs of earrings. I also like the opaque tights with the suit.

  6. I love this Dolce and Gabbana outfit. I would have worn this type suit when I was her age.

  7. The skirt is too short.

  8. It’s a nice suit, but the skirt or dress underneath is too short. (V.M.)

  10. Very elegant look from Kate. Playful yet serene at the same time. She’s at her best when surrounded by children. Also her hair is amazing here.

  11. everything about this visit is perfection (and I don't even like short skirts!). The Duchess looks very animated and engaged. I like how her hair is pulled back. It makes me smile to see her interacting with the children - especially in the first picture. She seems to be very much coming into her own as a member of the Royal Family and I look forward to seeing what is next.

  13. She looks great, not quite suitable for playgroup, I thought, something less formal might be a bit more natural in that kind of environment.

  14. This was a successful and great visit by the Duchess. She was so engaging with the children, and genuinely seemed to enjoy her visit. Her gentle and soft nature shines through. The subtle pieces of jewellery were the perfect choice. I love the jacket but not so keen on the skirt, a little longer would be more elegant.

  15. Loved this suit first time out and though I don't think short skirts are especially flattering on anyone over about 25, the opaque tights mean that this is a great outfit on her. The short skirt is also perfect for the event where she is bending down to child level so much. Love the photos of her with the wee cutie who presented the bouquet

  16. I think she looks just lovely. I am always amazed when she is criticized for wearing short skirts, she is only 37! I see young women everywhere wearing short skirts. If not when you are 37, then when? Her late mother-in-law in the last year of her life wore many short skirts and we all thought she looked gorgeous! I think she looks much better this week. I felt she looked extremely stressed last week. It is a beautiful suit and what a great visit to these children! Good for her.

    1. She’s not any 37 year old. She represents her majesty. Totally inappropriate. /LH

    2. Btw,Kate is 38. Agreed with the other comments around the inappropriate length for a person in an official capacity. It’s not that she doesn’t have the legs for it. It’s that we don’t need to be distracted by the fact she chose to display them on this particular occasion. If she were off duty, sure, whatever. But this is representing the royal family. MM

  19. Love the outfit; I think they must have upped her wardrobe budget. The hair is beautiful;colour great. Earings look lovely.There is a time and place for casual;it goes like this, when you are invited to something that is an occasion you dress up;there is an expectation.

    1. You dont have to like her, you can find her "false" because she performs her duties by smiling and appearing to enjoy what she does but there is no proof that William has been unfaithful. You should choose your information sources with a bit more judgement.

  24. On peut aimer quelqu’un mais il faut être franc aussi avec nos idéaux je suis désolée elle se fait tromper à tout bout de champ elle dit toujours rien c’est toujours des sourires regardez bien quand vous la voyez hors objectif ou hors caméra elle fait la tête pas possible j’ai pour ça que je me permets de dire qu’elle est fausse ....

    1. What utter, utter nonsense! She does not "fait la tête pas possible" - if she does it when the cameras aren't on her how do you know?

      Seriously she smiles too much so she's "fausse" and then isn't smiling so "elle fait la tête"?

      Three messages all saying the same thing - bit obsessed aren't you?

    2. je donne mon avis comme vous donner le vôtres. D’ailleurs c’est la seule famille royale dont je n’aime pas cette roturière ça me regarde c’est mon opinion personnelle je n’ai rien à dire sur la Suède je n’ai rien à dire sur la Norvège je n’ai rien à dire sur l’Espagne j’ai rien à dire sur le Danemark je pense que c’est mon avis et je ne changerai pas d’avis obsédé non simplement une opinion....!!!!

    3. I don't know how you can form an opinion based on nothing. Where is your proof that "elle fait la tête pas possible"? Your argument is illogical - how do you know if there are no photos?

      And accusing someone of something for which you have no proof ie. adultery, is libellous
