      England won 20-10, their first win in Cardiff in 6 years. Love the coat (complete with her English Rose rugby brooch) and the coordination with William’s tie. The alterations from her wearing it in Sweden (2018 when pregnant with Louis) are flawless and I like her black contrast better here than the burgundy in her previous wear. Not a fan of the bright white purse, I think black would have been better. Otherwise a great look for their meetings before the game (especially their reception time with injured players), and opening the center and stadium.

    2. Both William and Catherine are dressed quite formal, I guess there were reasons for that. I like the coat, would however not want to see it too often. I had a blaser in similar pattern and color. Yes back to classic style, a reuse.

      Take example of the down to earth and lovely swedish royals or danish royals. They are also crown prince/princess, able to dressed chic and casual. Their children don’t go to the matches dressed as the stockbrokers in the city of London …

      How is it too formal for a rugby match? You dress up to show respect and they're "on show", same as e.g. the Mayor sitting behind them who is wearing a suit, or the coaches, or the players themselves when they're not in kit.

      William and Catherine also had an official reception before the game with the Welsh Rugby Union, previously injured players, and their families, after which they officially opened a new suite named after Sir Tasker Watkins (an amazing welshman) for those players (who have been given lifetime game attendance opportunities) and their guests at the Stadium. So not just out to watch a sporting event. There are tons of photos of them at sports events dressed down as well as those of other royals (even the Scandinavian ones) dressed more professionally. The difference is if they (or other nations’ royals) have other official duties while there.
      Fun fact: there are photos of Sir Tasker Watkins receiving the Victoria Cross from George VI for amazing actions at Normandy during WW2 and later sitting with Princess Diana and a young Prince William watching Welsh Rugby.

      So does it mean that all the nordics royals (swedish, danish, norwegian) are not showing respect when they are dressing casual to go watching a sport match?

      Most of the time Prince George would go to a match dressed up like a stockbroker with his tie and all, well no surprise given the parents are ‘showing respect’ πŸ˜‚ while other royals kids can be casual.

    I love the Princess’ coat when she first wore it in Sweden and I love it today with her short booties. They both look elegant and well-coordinated. I hope their team will be successful.

  14. Cute coat, but a bit difficult to wear. I don´t think that this combination with black is entirely successful. I think the coat needs white or red complements. The fit is flawless though, and it´s also a great choice for the occasion.

    I don't like the thick black tights nor the white handbag with this coat. Black or red handbag and black shoes with tights in a natural color would have been better.

    1. It all ties in with the general colour scheme red, white, and black. Red/white are the colours of England anyway. The black tights and boots are probably to brave the cold. Do try and sit in an open stadium in Wales in February for yourself. You'll be freezing to death quickly. I think it was done for practical reasons.

    2. I think she’s wearing leggings. A dress with hose would be too formal. I’m guessing here but I think a dress would be too formal, and if she doesn’t take her coat off who would know,

      If it is that cold she should have dressed differently. f.ex. A red or black warm parka and black or red trousers. A white and red scarf. She has all these colors and clothes in her dressing room. It is just a question of coordination.

    Pattern of the coat is strong , but kind of outdated and too much geometry, the Mulberry bag could be a success, but in black color, not white, even red was still better, appropriate shoes selection could be a better option

    I loved this coat first time round. But much prefer this look. The black is a nice contrast to the coat. I would have gone with a black bag, but I’m guessing she went with the England colours. (White&red)
    I was hoping she’d have cut her hair. Too long now. When she had it at shoulder length it really suited her. No one did a bouncy blow out like Catherine!

    I think this outfit is cheerful and above all! - is in the colors of the English team, of which she is the patron. I would recommend high black suede boots for this outfit.

    I don't particularly like the coat; had it been a short cropped jacket it might have looked nicer, with a skirt.The little white bag doesn't look so nice either,a black bag would have been better. or a red bag.It might have been good if George was there.William looks fine (Tara)
