Duchess Kate wore green Catherine Walker to meet Crown Princess Victoria

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visit Stockholm

Prince William’s scarf made me think, for one brief moment, that he was wearing a turtleneck, and that he was going all-in with the Sketchy Bald European look. Alas, it’s just his scarf. These are more photos of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in Stockholm, where they met up with Crown Princess Victoria and her husband Prince Daniel. You can read more about their activities here.

I do not begrudge Kate’s big, Russian-style fur (faux fur?) hat. Apparently it’s cold as hell in Stockholm for this trip and she looks bundled up and warm in her buttony coat. I do feel sorry for William though – it’s probably some kind of Windsor rule that he shouldn’t wear a hat for this kind of photo-op. I bet his dome was ice-cold. As for Kate’s ensemble, from what I’m seeing, she wore a matchy-matchy hunter green dress and coat from Catherine Walker & Co. I like the simplicity of the dress and I loathe the dated look of the coat. The coat makes me think she’s trying to channel Jackie Kennedy all of a sudden.

    weird vibes off victoria and daniel here (and the king & queen) – they don’t look pleased with having to spend time with the cambridges.

  2. Cher says:

    Kate’s coat does look dated.

  3. Starryfish says:

    I really like Victoria’s coat.

  4. OriginalLala says:

    those posed photos after the luncheon look awkward as hell

  5. Ib says:

    The coat looks VERY Camilla to me. Which is fine for Camilla -she looks great in this cut. I loathe it on Kate though…but I am willing to be sympathetic in this instance that I 1) have never been pregnant 2) have never had to figure out arctic, formal maternity daywear. [That said, my walk to work in DC/VA was the exact same (standard January) temperature this morning and I managed fine ($100 ted baker camel wrap coat from eBay, 9yo stylish Icelandic sweater, $25 white/navy dotted button down from BR outlet, $10 HM black jeans, $30 HM black booties)]

    • Ib says:

      Victoria looks OUTSTANDING btw -I love her styling that pairs the maroon suede accessories (and patterned neck wrap?) with the coat. If I wore the coat, and wore it minus her accessories, I am afraid I would look slightly steampunk given the greenish khaki shade. Otherwise I would be setting an eBay alert for it…
      The only change I would make with victoria’s outfit would be adding tights or ideally making the boots instead of boot dies! Proportion ever so slightly off…

      • Ib says:

        Also one more comment to give Kate credit (again acknowledging that I respect her maternity style as long as it is occasion appropriate; pregnancy seems hard enough and I am not trying to pile on excessively) —Kate’s green dress is really nice. I also hope this shade (which is my favorite color that I am glad to finally see in stores!!) means that she will be doing her st Patrick’s commitment this year and recycling this outfit.

      • Imqrious2 says:

        The bow/collar of Victoria’s dress is peeking out from her coat. Looks cute.

  6. yanni says:

    It’s so dated. She totes stole it from Camilla’s closet!

  7. Nancy says:

    I don’t think she is trying to channel anyone, especially Jackie O. She looks lovely, has a pretty face. I like the color of the coat, but don’t like the way it flares out at the bottom. But, she is carrying a baby under all that material!

  8. Matilda says:

    NGL, posts on her clothing as she’s moving along in her pregnancy are a bit tiring. Standards should be different when you’re pregnant. If she’s not wearing something inappropriate like cutoffs or a tube top, give her a pass. For many pregnancy sucks from the beginning to the end. You’re in a constant state of discomfort either with nausea, hemorrhoids, back pain, leaky bladder or all of the above. The coat may not be the mos stylish, but what if she’s comfortable in it?

  9. Sullivan says:

    Kate always looks good in jewel tones.

  10. spidee!! says:

    Well her dress certainly looks better than Victoria’s which is like someone’s sofa. And the coat is fine too. But then I suppose I am not looking to find fault with her all the time.

  11. perplexed says:

    I would never be able to tell Kate is pregnant (unless maybe I went up to her real close).

  12. Kitty says:

    What’s the point of this tour? Doesn’t seem like it will do anything for Brexit. They really need to stop this whole Brexit charm defensive thing. It hasn’t worked at all. Also the crowd show up looks small for the Cambridge’s.

  13. HK9 says:

    I actually like Kate’s look here, it speaks to my inner granny. :-)

  14. manta says:

    Was she really wearing matchy-matchy green coat and dress?
    Looking at the pictures with the coat she doesn’t seem to wear a dress (pants maybe?), and the shoes are different from those on the pictures with the dress.
    It seems she changed outfits once indoor.

  15. another kate says:

    (Small voice)…I like the coat a lot…better than the dress actually!

  16. aquarius64 says:

    Did Kate curtsy to Victoria? Kate will be a queen consort but Victoria will be a queen regnant.

    • MissM says:

      She should have. Victoria outranks William as she is the heir. Williams peer is Princess Estelle.
      I’m actually excited for the Norwegian bit of the tour because Williams Norwegian counterpart, 14 year old Princess Ingrid Alexandra, will be taking part and showing them around.

  17. Anastasia says:

    IS there a rule that Will can’t wear a hat on these things? And why would that be? Kate is wearing a hat.

    William would look about 100 times better with a hat, AND he looks silly without one. I don’t mean because his face doesn’t carry a bald head well (it doesn’t), I mean because he’s so damn bundled up from head to toe, but then a hatless, bald head. It looks strange. At least Daniel has hair, so it doesn’t look as odd.

  18. minx says:

    I actually like Kate’s fur hat, but the whole outfit looks off to me.

  19. Sequinedheart says:

    I was cracking up laughing over the purse, when I saw it this morning on @KensingtonRoyal instagram account. Suddenly workhorses and taking tips, not from pips, but the newbie! If this becomes a team aniston/ team jolie style faceoff over the years, I am defs Team Sparkle.
    Something about Kate’s lack of interest in being an active Royal comes through too strong for me and other than enjoying the highs and lows of her fashion, she’s doesn’t have the x-factor for me. Meg Sparkle does. (Just my personal opinion)

  20. sus says:

    I’m curious to hear what you guys think of Silvia being so ‘toxed and tweaked she can barely move her face anymore?

  21. Becks says:

    I actually like the green coat, buttons and all (at least they blend!) I don’t like that hat but I never like those hats on her, so no surprise there. I also really like the boots with the coat.

    Her inside outfit is fine but a bit blah. I would have liked to have seen a necklace with it.

    I do like that shade of green on her in general though.

  22. Sage says:

    Kate looks great in green. That’s her colour.

  23. FredsMother says:

    She looks nice in green.

    But she is wearing the most Godawful Erdem dress over at the Fail. Not good at all.

  24. Pandora says:

    Kate, outbuttoned? Impossible!

  25. notasugarhere says:

    @Sixer, we miss you. I’m hoping you’ve secretly said to hell with it, packed up, and moved your family to Galway.

  26. Scarlett says:

    Ugh, the Cambs with their usual guarding their privates pose. Pathetic how unregal this pair look.

  27. LannisterForever says:

    Haha I live in Stockholm and it was NOT freezing here today. Maybe to people not from Scandinavia, but I din’t even wear a hat today :D

  28. Kaz says:

    Can’t wait for the next post on the formal dinner. All these outfits fade into insignificance beside the screaming mustard Erdem mess that Kate is wearing, I saw the pictures over at the fail.

  29. KicktheSticks says:

    Damn, Will and Kate utterly dwarf the Swedes. They look so tall next to them. I like Victoria but she’s really starting to resemble her mother more and more and not in a good way.

  30. Petty Riperton says:

    Kate channeling her Russian mob wife with this look. Willy looks cute with his scarf.
