  2. J'aime bien la forme et la longueur de cette robe mais son imprimé floral ressemble beaucoup à du papier peint ; je suis fan des espadrilles compensées très tendance chez toutes ces dames en cette période estivale !!

  4. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge work well together, and always seem genuinely involved with the people they visit and the causes they support. I love this dress on Catherine. It fits perfectly and the colors are the colors of summer. I like her the blond highlights to her hair for a change. William looks very nice too. His jacket is nicely tailored and goes well with his blue shirt and pants.

  5. I prefer William dressed more business casual like this than a suit and tie. It seems younger and more approachable. Great rewear from Kate. I love this floral fabric. I wish her mask better coordinated with her dress.

  6. I cannot get on board with this print. Very Laura Ashley/your nan's curtains. The structure of the dress is fine and the shoes are lovely though.

    1. I also feel as you do and also have a personal bias. I think the dress is really nice and fit Kate well. I like the style and the way it fall. It looks comfortable and summery. Unfortunately, growing up as a child we had a room in our house with wallpaper 90% exactly as the print of the fabric, down to the pattern and colours. When I saw this dress the first time Kate wore it, that was the first thing that struck my eye, and it still does. 7 years of seeing that wallpaper everyday cannot erase the memory for me.
      But I do like the dress very much.

    2. This Laura Ashley-Thing is exactly what I love about this dress! Catherine looks adorable as always.

  7. Lovely to see the two of them at work together. They always look happy in each others company. This dress is not my favourite, though difficult to say why---it may be that the pattern reminds me of wallpaper in my Granny's house when I was small!

  8. Kate's hair looks good and the dress is pretty.Such a lovely couple who couldn't want to wish them well.

  9. These two look great and do so well together. I love Catherine’s summer highlights and tan. The cut and fit look great while the gold jewelry and wedges give it a fun casual vibe. Like others have shared, for me this print was too curtains/nightgownish.

  10. Agree with Anna, can't get over the comforter look of the print, although I like the cut and length, and love the shoes. That being said, even with a bad print she still looks adorable.

  11. Lovely to see them both out and about, they make a marvellous team. William looks great, I love how he is dressed. I am not a fan of the Duchess's dress, it is a rare miss for me, the print of the dress reminds me of curtains my mom use to have.

  12. A discording voice from me, for once, about Kate's dress. I don't like the dress, neither the print nor the style. And nor the new hair color, it doesn't fit her so well. I have read often here and there about some dresses.. it makes her look older.
    I definitely prefer shorter dresses for her, she has no reasons to abandon them. But I like the shoes for summer occasions!

  13. One more Miss Marple - outfit on Kate. Her style is really very boring, this one I could descripe almost ugly because e of the print and material. I like the shoes though. - Siri

  14. I also don't like the print, not for the first time and not for the second. Maybe if the material was kind of flowing it would look better for me? and/or maybe if the base color was not baby blue? I don't know. I simply don't like it. Maybe on a pillow case, but even then, I am not sure :-) . But of course, Catherine is her lovely self in every other respect (even if I prefer her hair up or back or in a ponytail). (-Ann.)
