    Where’s the belly????!!!!!!!!!

    • Gemini08 says:

      She’s so thin that she’s barely showing.

    • Heather H says:

      At 5’10″ she won’t really show for a while yet. I am only 5’8″ and didn’t look pregnant until 6 months with my first.

    • Belle says:

      I think she is showing a fair bit… but not enough to be seen through the coats she has been wearing in the last couple batches of photos we’ve seen.

    • Alexandra Bananarama says:

      No 2 people carry the same. Even with similar body types women carry completely differently.

      She’s skin, dense, but thin muscle, and bone with a very long torso. This is also her 1st pregnancy so things haven’t stretched out yet. On top of all of this she has a very strict diet. I suspect she will only look as big as a very thin woman whose strapped a soccer ball to her stomach and told her friends she’s pregnant.

      This woman is hyper aware of her appearance. She’s burning every calorie she takes in.

  2. Apsutter says:

    Very cute…like the shoes

  3. Eleonor says:

    I like those boots.

  4. marie says:

    I want her job.. I like her boots.

  5. vava says:

    This coat isn’t doing anything for her, IMO. It would look much better with a pair of pants, and quite honestly it’s too small for her at this time. She should put it back in the closet for later.

  6. sharylmj says:

    she’s so pretty and looks very happy and healthy to me. I LOVE her boots!!

  7. Brown says:


  8. V4Real says:

    I am loving her fashion style here. She can rock a short dress and make it look presentable.

    • berry says:

      I agree for once she actually looks young and not matronly. Although I wish she would ease up on how she applies her blush.

      • V4Real says:

        OMG you’re right; the blush matches her coat.

      • L says:

        It’s snowing so I think those are just her cheeks turning red in the cold. There are other pics of her in the box, and it’s not nearly as red or bright.

    • m says:

      It could be presentable if she wasnt a pregnant royal. The proportions are all wrong. Girl has really short legs so one has to wonder how far away she is from a crotch shot considering how short the mini dress is.

      • V4Real says:

        Oh come on M I don’t particularly care for Kate and she’s dressed age appropriate and she looks good.

  9. Joanna says:

    Wow, I read that as “HUGE ANUS”!

  10. The Original Mia says:

    She can make the time to spend hours at the racetrack, but not at her charities. Wow.

    Her dress has be to be mid-thigh. Way too short.

    • Alexandra Bananarama says:

      I was wondering if the race track was somehow one of her charities or had an event for any of her charities. Couldn’t find anything.

      I wish she’d show this much enthusiasm and smiling when visiting her charities. I’d also like for her to visit her charities.

      Maybe i’m just modest, but yea. The hem is much too short. Good thing she’s standing a lot.

    • DGO says:

      Duchess Do-little. I think she looks tacky. Couldn’t they find a coat that fit?

    • Paddy says:

      HG has miraculously disappeared , she’s done jack other than two v small appearances in between a variety of holidays and shopping sprees. He’s a disgrace to his RAF uniform. These two are lazy and are being found out by the public for hiding behind “HG” & “search & rescue co-pilot”. A sense of entitlement without the public duty. Shame on them both.

      • Bodhi says:

        I’m not defending her or anything, but HG can dissipate as a pregnancy progresses. Just because she is better now doesn’t mean that she wasn’t ill in the beginning.

      • Mona says:

        You’ve never been pregnant have you? HG and morning sickness normally disappear later, its usually only present at the start of a pregnancy, it doesn’t last all through you know. Maybe you should read more before spewing (pardon the pun) absurd rubbish.

      • Kitten Mittens says:


        Having been pregnant before doesn’t make you right on this. HG is severe morning sickness. Morning sickness does go away. HG when properly diagnosed only gets worse with pregnancy.
        It’s sadly misdiagnosed a lot so insurance will pay for better meds. Her “HG” was a diagnosis from the palace. Not from a doctor. Her HG also went away very quickly. within a week.

        She even attended an award show and stood next to David Beckham and his cologne didn’t set off her nausea. If she had morning sickness or HG bad enough to cancel the next month of work, but attend an award show even with her heightened sense of smell pregnant women tend to get makes people question it.

        I’m sure you think you know someone who had HG, but got over it quickly within a month. That was possibly a case of a misdiagnosis for reasons stated above.
        The theory has been tossed out that William was away partying with old male friends and their friends *cough*escorts*cough*. Kate was staying with her mother at the time. She gets sick. She’s dropped off alone in front of the hospital and walks herself in alone. Possibly as an attempt to lure/guilt William back home where he should be.

        All in all the HG was never diagnosed by a doctor. Ever. She never had it. It was an excuse to cancel on charities.

      • Paddy says:

        Thank you Kitten Mittens for putting previous poster “right”. I didn’t think people on ths board went in for personal invective, it shows immaturity & stunted intellect ,shame.

      • Sarcasmo says:

        I spent two pregnancies on bed-rest, nauseous & voming until at least 7 months along, and lost weight, not gained it.

        That kind of sick doesn’t just go away.

  11. i'm french don't kill me says:

    nothing on Daniel Craig yelling(and grabing the cellphoneof ) a fan who tried to take pic of Craig and Rachel Weisz in a supermarket? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/15/daniel-craig-fan-phone_n_2883120.html

  12. bluhare says:

    WAY too short. And I mean way too short.

    • Esti says:

      I think it just rode up when she got out of the car. There are other pics on the Mail’s site of her in the stands, and you can see the bottom hem of the dress is longer than the coat.

      • bluhare says:

        I just went and looked. That coat is a good 3 to 4 inches above her kneee. Even I, who have no issue with short skirts, think its much too short.

    • GoodCapon says:


      Does she really need to flaunt her legs everytime with too short coats and dresses?

      It’s a rare occasion when she manages to look like she has the polish of a royal. Most of the time she simply looks like a typical rich girl with an unlimited access to money. TACKY.

      • bluhare says:

        Thanks Good Capon. I think an above the knee hemline is fine, but this one is mini, and (puts on pearls to clutch) not appropriate for the mother of an heir to the throne.

  13. Reece says:

    Those colors remind me of when my friend was pregnant and EVERYTHING in the baby store was blush pink and brown. I mean EVERYTHING! So much so that even if she wasn’t pregnant I’d think she was pregnant wearing those colors. haha Yeah, work or not that is way short.

    Dear God why did I click the Lil Kim link! I can’t unsee that!

  14. skuddles says:

    I love her coat and boots! Coat color really works nicely with her skin tone.

  15. melmel says:

    Does William ever work? Or does any pilot in his position get lots of time off?

  16. Belle says:

    I’m far from a prude… and would actually love to see the dress without the coat, BUT, for a pregnant royal the dress seems pretty damn short! LOL

    I love the coat and boots as well… but I don’t think the coat works with the too-short dress. Makes it look like she isn’t wearing anything under the coat. ;)

    • Emma says:

      Her dress looks silky so it could have easily ridden up while she was in the car. It could be clinging to her coat making it look shorter than it is.
      Even if it isnt…. its not like she is flashing her vag. She looks lovely!

  17. Hyuga says:

    The earrings clash with the coat and look terrible with her engagement ring.
    And someone should have told her to wear a dress.

  18. Elly says:

    my first thought was: nice coat… but then i´ve seen more pictures. The coat looks cheap in detail.

    Her make up is terrible (as always)


    • vava says:

      That photo you posted makes it look as if she had the buttons moved over….

      • Azurea says:

        I see that! And it still looks too small in the chest!
        Talk about tacky. Surely she had another coat to wear…

  19. Paloma says:

    I think she is a lovely girl with great taste in clothes.

    • bluhare says:

      I agree she’s lovely and has good taste in clothes (especially coats and boots), and I like this coat and boot combo too but it’s too short.

  20. Meg says:

    the bottom buttons on the coat are pulling b/c it doesn’t fit anymore. and it’s too damn short for the occasion. bored with that hat, it’s been repeated too many times. her face looks much better fuller though, wish she’d ease up on the makeup!

    • Justme says:

      The buttons on the coat have been moved over to give her more room. So it throws the coat “off”. I guess she figures she won’t need a winter coat soon, so why get a new one?

      • MinnFinn says:

        Good eye!

        In Huffington Post pics you can even see indentations where the buttons used to be.

  21. lucy2 says:

    I like the coat.

    Good for Sen. Portman. It may have taken a personal connection to realize everyone should have equal rights, but at least he got there. Hopefully more will follow.

  22. RHONYC says:

    Kim need to spend some of that plastic surgery $$ on them crusty, dusty hands.

    womp. :-(

  23. Mew says:

    Omg, Lil Kim looks like an asian person these days. o.O

  24. LAK says:

    I like the colour of the coat. Works really well with her skin tone.

    I can’t rag on her for skirt length since this is a private outing. Girl needs to keep big willy interested and if a short skirt will do it, so be it ;)

    • bluhare says:

      I’m ragging! And if she wants to keep Big Willy’s interest, may I suggest a French maid outfit while she’s making her jam or stuffing her sausages.

  25. Eileen says:

    I like Kate so much but all I can think is how many charity events and official appearances Diana, Princess of Wales put in early on in her marriage,sigh-what a work ethic she had, as well as Charles, Prince of Wales

    • badrockandroll says:

      Kate is married to the person who is second in line to the throne. Diana never was. I really can’t remember the name of the last person who was married to the person second in line to the throne – One of Victoria’s kids? And early in their marriage, I don’t think that Charles was perceived as the poster boy for work ethic.

      • Suze says:

        That would have been Elizabeth, later in life known as the Queen Mother. During his father’s reign, her husband was third in line for the throne, after his father and brother.

        That situation was a bit different, though.

        I’m not sure where you’re getting the idea that Charles was slacking on his duties. He’s always been consistently working, although often without notice or while being mocked.

  26. KellyinSeattle says:

    I like Kate and don’t mind if she doesn’t work when she’s pregnant.

    • Ragamuffin says:

      Oh Kelly! And when she has the baby she won’t have to work because she has a child. Never mind the nannies. She’s never worked and never had the drive to do anything past having a man pay for everything. People need to stop making excuses for this woman.
      All positive comments are about her appearance or clothes. Nothing of substance. The only time she looks like she wants to be anywhere is when she’s shopping, looking adoringly at a husband that never spends time with her, or out socially.
      She’s tacky and common and i’m done ranting.

      • aimee says:

        Well said. Judging from most of the Kate comments on this site, you are in good company.

    • Suze says:

      Kelly, I do admire your consistent admiration of Kate in the face of the criticism she receives on this site.

      You do not waver!

  27. mimi says:

    Her coat and boots are absolutely gorgeous.

    I would love to have her entire wardrobe.

    She seems extremely thin, but she has been super thin ever since she lost weight before her wedding.

    She does not work, which is fine, if tax-payers are not paying for her lavish life-style.

    • aimee says:

      You’d like her wardrobe? How old are you, 55? Notwithstanding the need to be “conservative”, she looks rather matronly in a lot of the outfits we see (except maybe for skirt length in this particular instance). Ma Middleton and Pippa dress much better for goodness sake!

      • bluhare says:

        It’s called Ladylike Chic, and some women ought to give it a try. If it’s something for 55 year olds, then give me that any day of the week from the crack showing boob hanging out crap.

      • aimee says:

        Not advocating “crack showing boob hanging out crap” as you so eloquently put it, but I think there are more age-appropriate ways she could dress and still be “lady like”. Sophie Wessex as well as Princess Anne’s daughter and daughter in law come to mind. Heck, even Pippa and Mama Middleton dress better than Kate!

    • LAK says:

      unfortunately tax payers are already paying for her and William so their none existant work ethic is a problem.

  28. Mary says:

    These people are figureheads, royalty. Their lives are all about doing nothing but being. Why don’t you pile on the Obamas, the biggest mooches to ever live in the White House? Who gives a **** what they do over there anyway?

    • Suze says:

      Are you seriously claiming that Barack Obama doesn’t work hard? That he’s lazy? That he and his family are mooching off the country and not earning their keep?

      Good grief.

      I may not be a fan of all our presidents but I don’t consider a single, solitary one to be a “mooch”. They all work hard as H*LL for the country.

      • DreamyK says:

        @Suze..Rupert Mudroch owns a slew of media outlets that is run by Roger Ailes. Tim Dickinson of Rolling Stone magazine did a stunning look at how the media is manipulated by Roger Ailes making talking points or catch phrases/words mimicked throughout the day on all of Murdoch’s media holdings. Great article, very insightful. The purpose is to blanket enough internet, newspaper, radio, magazine media so it SEEMS like it’s true because it is being heard on media outlets that cater to a certain demographic of this country that listen or watch the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Fox News etc

        That’s why you hear people parroting keywords like “lazy” regarding Obama. Murdoch and Ailes have no problem saying slanderous things about President Obama, and particularly things that are racial stereotypes, and are quite pleased to have their readers/listeners quote the talking points as if they were facts instead of what the actually are: opinions.

      • Jessica says:

        Totally agree with you. I have issues with our government and the speed our government takes to get bills approved.

        But replace Obama with anyone else and you won’t see progress move any faster. He is no slouch. Given our economy and the current situation he’s doing as good of a job as any president in history.

      • Louise says:

        He is a total mooch. More golf games, more vacations than about 10 presidents put together. He is working very hard only to pass blame for wrecking this country. The Obamas are grifters, con artists. Open your eyes.

    • bluhare says:

      You’re turning a link about Kate’s coat into a diatribe against the Obamas? Good lord. May I suggest Huffington Post. Lots of company over there.

  29. Alexandra Bananarama says:


    You should educate yourself before posting The Obamas are 1 of the most frugal families to live in the White House. All new furnishings and changes to the WH for purely superficial purposes to suit them were paid for from their private accounts. As opposed to past presidents adding pools, bowling alleys, and such who had the tax payers pick up the tab. They also Contribute much of their private money to charities and do not write off as much as they could. So, please tell me what they’ve wasted money on? And if it’s a link to FOX News I swear….. anyways…

    The posters here who oppose W&K either live in the UK, Once lived there and moved out, or have friends or family there. They have every right to complain about about how their tax money is spent. The royals (as I understand it) can keep the peace by choosing not to live off of expenses supplemented by taxes or wholly paid for by tax payer funds or do charity work and be a public servant and get some funds from the tax money. They could of course use their own money, but why spend that when someone else will pick up the tab.

    The trouble with Will & Kate is she has a college degree, but chooses to not work, live off tax payers in a struggling nation without remorse and he is equally lazy.

    Personal feelings aside this woman has accomplished nothing and is a drain on society. And please do not drag the Obamas into a conversation that justifies laziness. You will be made a fool every time. Lastly W&K are not full time royals because both are dragging their feet. Yet they demand the full time benefits and often stand up their charities and what little schedules they have are often cancelled or blown off for tax payer vacations.

    Couldn’t post as a Reply so here it is.

    • Angela says:

      Wow, Alexander you have summed things up brilliantly.
      As a British citizen not a subject, we do have every right to call lazy royals out. William and kate so obviously only want to do the fun celebrity type of activity, and that is all. I have never seen william so happy as when he was Skiing last week and here at the races.
      Its sad but true

    • greta says:

      Excellent comment! Instead of focusing on the superficial (things like her clothes, hair, veneers, whatever) you stated simple, incontestable facts – bravo!! I’ve noticed that Kate defenders on this site and others are at a loss to fawn over any accomplishments (there are none) or they speculate inaccurately about them and go on and on about how she looks –never seeming to notice how fake she is (the extensions, fake tan, teeth, pillow bra, etc.) Thanks!

    • bluhare says:

      (Bowing down to the First Lady of the Royal Celebitches)

      • Alexandra Bananarama says:

        Rise Baroness Bluhare

        Just doing my part to keep women from thinking this woman is someone to be idolized for finding financial security on the backs of the poor.

    • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

      Must agree. No comparison between this president (or any), who is comparatively frugal and the m-IDLE-tons.

  30. Aurelia says:

    There is always something off with waitey’s get ups. She always has to spolil what might have otherwise been a passable look. This is no exception.

    Coat looks cheap and is too short. No home training this girl. Tacky look for a preggie royal with short dress and long boots. Maybe if she was going out to a night club and she wasn’t a faux royal? Otherwise – big fail.

    • karen says:

      …the weird thing was, there was another woman in their box dressed exactly like her ie very short coat with long boots…so maybe its an unofficial uniform for race-going toffs.

  31. Rae says:

    I really wish people would stop using the word ‘tacky’ for anything they just do not happen to like. Her outfit is not close to being tacky.

    Some say she looks 55 and others say her dress is too modern and short. Which one is it or are you just trying to find anything to throw at her?

    I am not a massive fan of Kate but even I can’t help but notice the level of spite that is coming off some of these posts.

    • Suze says:

      I agree. Things you personally don’t like are just things you personally don’t like. Not necessarily tacky.

      It’s like calling everyone you don’t like or understand a douche.

      There is really nothing tacky about Kate’s ensemble. It is a little short, but what the heck, she’s not on an official event so who cares?

      • Inconceivable! says:

        I think it’s tacky that she moved the buttons over and it can be so blatantly seen. Just my opinion. (There is a link above with the photos).

      • Kitten Mittens says:

        Tacky is cheap and inappropriate. Like carrying the future heir to the throne and wearing a dress so short if she bent over slightly you could see everything. It is an opinion, but if you break it down enough all things you want to disagree with are opinion based. Is there anything this woman’s fan can compliment her on that isn’t superficial? Clothes, hair and make up is all she has. Nothing between the ears.

      • Suze says:

        You might see inappropriate but I don’t. And I highly doubt any part of that outfit is cheap.

        And I’m not a Kate fan. Far from it.

    • Rae says:

      It’s tacky to tailor an outfit to fit you better with a growing bump by having buttons moved? Was that tongue in cheek because that is really stretching.

      As to the others’ use of tacky; her dress is not that short when it is full length down, her coat well covers her modesty and she looks fashionable. It is a look that a lot go for at Cheltenham, but because she is pregnant she must wrap herself up in her grandma’s dresses instead? What century do you live in?

      She does not look cheap at all, but you are right it is an opinion but they easily change when you want to find a fault.

  32. Mona says:

    Is she even wearing a skirt or dress? It looks like she has no pants on or skirt on at all and if she took of the coat you’d see her underwear.

  33. Nan says:

    Typical. Her “bust schedule” is worth discussing but Prince William’s presence is not even mentioned.

  34. Sara says:

    I think she looks beautiful amd I love the coat!

  35. karen says:

    …maybe the headline should be ‘Duke Wills takes time out from his so-called job as a search and rescue pilot to go to the races’….thats the elephant in the corner.

  36. Shoe_Lover says:

    I dont get your Megan Draper hate. I like that she isnt a doormat like Betty and actually has a personality and life of her own and doesnt let Don treat her like cr#p.

  37. Mario says:

    The royals are worthless, every last one of them, they don’t have busy schedules all they do is spend money they didn’t earn and don’t deserve.
