Duchess Kate wore ARoss Girl x Soler to the Aga Khan Centre in London

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visit

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stepped out today at the Aga Khan Centre in London. This was an event specifically chosen in advance of William and Kate’s Pakistan tour, which will be October 14-18. The Aga Khan Centre is basically a cultural embassy for Pakistanis, British-Pakistanis and those interested in Pakistani culture and Muslim culture. At the event, Will and Kate met with Pakistani community leaders and cultural leaders.

For this event, Kate went very respectful and conservative with her attire – she’s not visiting a mosque, so there was no need for a head scarf, but this is probably a preview of how she’ll dress for events in Pakistan in general – longer skirts, covered arms, conservative necklines, bright colors. I’ve always loved Kate in jewel tones and this teal shade is great on her. The dress is ARoss Girl x Soler. She wore earrings by Zeen (a Pakistani designer). In addition to being on-theme for the event, the dress is just… a Kate dress. This is her style now – sort of dated and vaguely ‘70s and ‘80s.

    She looks beautiful- I actually really like that dress!

    Not to derail the thread, will be very curious to see if they or any other royals show any support to the Sussexes.

    • stepup says:

      I don’t think Will and Kate will ever publicly support the Sussexes. Wills is a grand asshole who lacks compassion and Kate is subservient.

      • Timothy says:

        What does this have to do with the Sussexes? This event is for their planned tour….

      • stepup says:

        @Timothy: I was commenting on the OP’s comment: “Not to derail the thread, will be very curious to see if they or any other royals show any support to the Sussexes.”

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      She looks lovely; that is a gorgeous shade on her. But where’s the cost of her dress? Item costs are in EVERY Meghan post! (snark…not serious!)

      • Some chick says:

        Net a Porter has it for around $350… not sure what retail would be based on that. Knee length styles on the designer’s site were around 800 pounds. So it cost a penny or two. 😉

        It’s also silk so it must be super comfy!

    • Bella DuPont says:

      Seeing as they are openly benefiting from the trashing of the Sussexes, I expect they are pretty comfortable for things to continue just as they are, indefinitely.

    • LahdidahBaby says:

      Yeah, it’s a good look.

      A better look would be some public support of the hell the Sussexes are enduring in the British press.

  2. ItReallyIsYou,NotMe says:

    I kind of like that she is going for a more retro look In general and I love this particular look. I think that retro can be done well and look like an updated reference to an earlier time rather than straight cosplay.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      I think it was a matter of Cathy Cambridge simply dressing in a very simple style for a particular occasion.

      Cathy looks nice and more importantly very appropriate for the occasion.

    • Megan says:

      I like the dress, but the shoes are fracking horrible. Why is her shoe game so bad?

    • Bree says:

      Do you know WHY she does retro? I haven’t seen anyone else do this, and I’m really curious. (I hate it, but you know style, it’s subjective.)

      • yinyang says:

        I think she does retro style to be more dianaish. And her new longer dresses and hair and looks are influenced by Rose Hanbury. A lot of people say her style choices are influenced by Meg, but I disagree, why would she want to be connected with the princess everyone trashes as beneath her, she’s smart to steer clear of that.

      • L84Tea says:

        I agree about the Rose bit. When I was younger, I knew several women in my life who oddly became slightly infatuated with the women that their boyfriends had previously dated, dumped them for, etc., and began to mirror their style. It’s a bizarre behavior to take on, but it does happen with people who harbor a lot of insecurities. I believe Kate does this.

      • Guest says:

        The throwback retro look is all over High Fashion. Cheap? Nope… the dresses start at the low 4 figures. Kate is on trend with these types of dresses. Modest and demure gowns are all the range. Of course people on here wouldn’t know because they can’t afford it.

  3. ABC says:

    I don’t think it looks dated at all. She looks amazing, and the earrings were a nice touch.

  4. Nicoleduff says:

    Don’t count on it harry&meghan receives no support from that horrible family.

  5. Becks1 says:

    I like that color on her – she looks best in jewel tones IMO – but the dress itself…well like you said Kaiser, its very Kate. I don’t like the shoes and clutch with it though.

    • Enny says:

      Agree, I think a thicker stacked heel would have looked better than this stiletto heel.

      • Spicecake38 says:

        Came here to say a chunky/block heel shoe even a thick strap sandal in a metallic/ bronze shade would have looked great IMO.Like the dress and earrings though.

  6. Eulalia says:

    Agree that that colour looks lovely on her but I feel like I’ve seen this dress on her about 1,000 times before. What happened to the style revamp Keen Jason keeps hissing to the press about?

  7. Erinn says:

    I don’t mind this. The color is nice on her. I like the movement of the skirt, and while it’s not my favorite look of hers, it serves it’s purpose.

    • Some chick says:

      It’s beautiful – and more importantly, very appropriate for the occasion.

      The floaty fabric is a nice shift from the more fitted type of garments she usually goes for. I think she looks lovely here. And I do look forward to seeing her tour style. That’s coming up pretty soon I think.

  8. Jules2 says:

    Nice colour, but in typical Kate fashion, dated. Sophie is quite a bit older but somehow her outfits always looks on point and modern….

    • Missy says:

      She create her own style like Crown Princess VIctoria.

    • bros says:

      I just let out the biggest meeeeeehhhhhhh
      just meh
      she looks gaunt
      dress is unremarkable
      shoes are a huge needle scratch like she just thought f*ck it, these old black incongruous with georgette pumps will do.

  9. DS9 says:

    I was ready to feel some way about the length until I read what the event was.

    It’s a very pretty color for her.

  10. Lisa says:

    Kate looks good.

  11. BaronSamedi says:

    I mean this is absolutely nothing new. You could have told me these pictures are from ten years ago and I would have believed it.

    I like the color and for once the style kind of works for the occasion. I still think that if you want to go ‘slightly dated and vaguely 70’s’ you have to reflect it in your accessories too. Her looks so often also don’t work because she half-asses them. This dress would have worked sooo much better with hoop earrings and plateau sandals. That would at least tie the whole look to the right decade and would look more put together than a floaty summer style dress with closed shoes and whatever those earrings are.

    *sigh* I am over Kate and Wills since the commercial flight to Scotland stunt. You wanna show up the Sussexe? Go do some actual work. They are currently easily outplaying you in work AND fashion.

    • Eulalia says:

      I am with you! That stunt left a really bad taste in my mouth and I can’t view the Cambridge’s in the same way anymore. I always gave Kate the benefit of the doubt and thought William was mostly behind the smears out of jealously and insecurity, but that plane nonsense really made her look complicit in all the Sussex sledging.

      • Keekee says:

        I think she literally just does everything her silly husband tells her…she fears getting on his bad side.

      • Becks1 says:

        I agree that the budget flight stunt put me off the Cambridges in a big way. I remember tweeting when I saw that something like “so now its confirmed that William is an asshole.” If we had any doubt before then that William and Kate weren’t at the very least AWARE of the criticism lodged constantly at Meghan and Harry and weren’t trying to use it to their advantage – that proved it beyond a doubt. Whether or not they are behind any of the criticism no longer matters, because they are going out of their way to benefit from it.

    • I would disagree, hoop earrings and sandals would be completely inappropriate for the event. More stylish? Absolutely. Appropriate? I think a bit too casual.

    • Guest says:

      ‘whatever those earrings are’ nice unconscious racism there, thank you. I’m sure those lovely cultural earrings and the wearers of the jewellery & Pakistani designers, will care a lot.

    • Guest says:

      ‘whatever those earrings are’ nice unconscious racism there, thank you. I’m sure those lovely cultural earrings and the wearers of the jewellery & Pakistani designers, will care a lot..

  12. Bookworm says:

    Pretty color, especially with the earrings.

    I don’t see this as dated. It’s just a long sleeve dress with a round neck. There are no fussy things on it like huge shoulder pads from the 80s. I think it’s just simple and classic rather than dated or retro.

  13. CindyP says:

    She looks fine but noticed something watching the video of this on twitter
    Kate does not have it; no presence, no charisma, no wow factor, no confidence
    She blends into the background
    She’s the daughter that goes to things with her Dad

    • Kittycat says:

      Sad but true

    • Missy says:

      In BRF only Diana had wow factor.

      • CindyP says:

        It’s more than clothes & glamour; the Queen has a regal bearing, Anne has presence, so does Camilla. Of course so does Meghan; she is confident & genuine

    • one of the Marys says:

      because “dad” is her husband. she’s had years of training blending into the background, cannot upstage William in any way

      • Some chick says:

        I actually feel badly for her about this particular aspect.

        It is very clear that as far as he’s concerned he’s already king. He has several subjects already, too: Kate, mistress Rose, the kids… do they have a dog?

        He’d like to boss Harry too, but he clearly cannot. That’s why *he* doesn’t like Meg. She’s independent and now Harry’s focus is his family, and work. And they are bringing it!

        If Willy thinks about it too hard, steam probably comes out of his ears.

    • L84Tea says:

      I can’t help but compare to her to all the other Queens/Future Queens–Mary, Maxima, Letizia, Victoria–all of whom carry themselves with an elegance and regal presence. Kate lacks presence period. It always seems as if she’d rather be somewhere else–anywhere than where she actually is.

  14. Missy says:

    She looks beautifull to me. I like color of the dress it is suits her.

  15. Charfromdarock says:

    That colour looks great on her.

  16. Busyann says:

    I don’t think her hair color works for her. She looks so much better with a darker brown.

  17. Kittycat says:

    I really dislike William’s suit

    • L4frimaire says:

      Same here. It looks cheap and ill- fitting. Bland and boring. He has no style whatsoever. They always go on about the women, but he needs a stylist. ( Harry’s dressing a bit better since Meghan, but barely)

  18. Esme says:

    Love the earrings!

    • Elisa says:

      +1, they are really lovely.
      I like the color of the dress but not the fabric which makes it look like a nightgown.

  19. aquarius64 says:

    Bet they’re mad the Sussex lawsuit is going to big foot their Pakistan tour.

    • L4frimaire says:

      The Royal reporters will be so happy to go to a Pakistan after that little lawsuit dropped on the Fail yesterday, and do some un-ironic fawning and scraping. I think the Cambs will dress more formally since it’s a very conservative country. Wonder how the tabloid press, with their usual cultural awareness and diversity, frame their visit going to majority Muslim country that has a problematic relationship, to put mildly, with their neighbors.

  20. Minal says:

    I work at the Aga Khan Museum of Islamic Art in Toronto. Neither the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) nor its many centres all over the world are aligned with Pakistan. His highness the Aga Khan is the 49th hereditary Imam and spiritual and administrative leader of the Shia faith-rooted Nizari Ismaili Muslim SUPRANATIONAL union. AKDN works in Pakistan because there is an Ismaili community in Pakistan. But it also works in India, Canada, the UK, and various African countries because they are home to Ismaili communities.

    • OriginalLala says:

      Thanks for this info, I was wondering about that. The Aga Khan Museum in TO is really beautiful!

      • Erinn says:

        And that’s why the name sounded familiar to me – but the location was throwing me off. I’d heard of the Aga Khan Museum in Toronto first. It’s a pretty building – and it is so pretty in shots I’ve seen from the evenings where the sun is dipping, and the building is reflecting on the water.

    • Becks1 says:

      Thank you for this information!

    • Amy says:

      I figured the same. Thanks for confirming! The Aga Khani community is big in Pakistan, but not the only place where its practitioners can be found.

    • The Original Mia says:

      Thanks for clarifying. The Aga Khan visited Atlanta a few years ago and it was a huge deal. There were tons of people in town to see him.

    • Some chick says:

      That’s fascinating info, thanks! Sounds like a cool place to work.

  21. HK9 says:

    I love the whole outfit. The dress is beautiful and she looks relaxed and happy. It’s a win.

  22. TorontoBeach says:

    It’s awful the Cambridges have shown no support at all for the Sussexes. If I’m being generous, the budget flight to Scotland could be written off as a preventive measure to avoid being lambasted by the public/media for flying private like Meghan and Harry. Now is the time to show their support with the lawsuit. After all haven’t Kate and Wills been championing mental well being and anti-bullying? Can’t think of much worse bullying than what Meghan went through during her pregnancy. Shame on the Cambridges for being hypocrites.

    • HK9 says:

      It also doesn’t help that the Cambridges have the wort PR team on the planet. They don’t realize that EVERYONE is going to remember that they did nothing and what that lack of support means.

    • Polly says:

      It’s also awful that his father and stepmother have shown no support for them. A statement from the next king and queen would be more impactful than one from the Cambridge’s.

      • TorontoBeach says:

        Agreed. Charles and Camilla should definitely be supporting them but I’m sure they are worried the hate-on for them which has just recently subsided would be reignited. So much for being a good parent. We all know Charles is much too selfish for that. I often wonder how Diana would have reacted – can’t imagine she would’ve just stood by and done nothing. The Queen- she actively supports the pedo but not H and M. Lost a lot of respect for her.

  23. TorontoBeach says:


  24. Amy Too says:

    I HATE this and am surprised that so many people seem to like it. The length of the dress is weird and accentuates the bizarre choice of shoes. The sheer overlay fabric, especially with the gathered neckline looks kind of cheap and super dated to me. It even has a slightly wavy hem like shirts and dresses from the 90s. The sleeve length seems off and the little ties could be cute but I think they look fussy especially since the dress already has a belt. And that belt is a different color than the dress, but not in a fun way. The color combo of teal and green isn’t one of my favorites. It just seems like something a grandma would buy from one of the lower end department stores.

    • Agenbiter says:

      It is an odd length – the DM called it “floor-length”

    • Market Street Minifig says:


    • Beach Dreams says:

      Agreed. Something about this outfit is visually jarring. For me it’s partially the color combo of the dress and belt. It gives off an unpleasant, overwhelming effect. Also, the dress in general is like old school nightgown meets classic cult robe. I know why it was chosen but it still looks awful.

    • Bella DuPont says:


    • Moose says:

      I agree Amy, I don’t like it either…. although I like the colour it really isn’t flattering across her chest and looks very dated, but if she’s happy…

      There is a clip on twitter of Kate putting her hand on William’s shoulder and quips about them trying to do PDA!! Just looks forced though rather than natural…

  25. Melissa says:

    I like the look, but the length + chiffon reads evening to me. I would expect this at a dinner reception at the same venue. It does not seem the best choice for daytime. A midi length or more structured fabric would have been better.

  26. Le4Frimaire says:

    Dress is ok but makes but don’t like that color on her and the length is a little too long.

  27. Murphy says:

    I’m not a fan of that style because no matter what you’re wearing underneath it makes you look like you aren’t wearing a bra (although I’m sure Kate is)
    Speaking of….
    Hey guess what, I also wore a bra today, thanks Kate!!

  28. Vava says:

    I feel like that neckline is a choking hazard. I can almost feel it on my own neck! LOL.
    Other than that, the dress is fine (style is ‘meh’ to me), the color is nice on her, and her choice of shoes and handbag are as usual very uninspiring.
    She just seems to be such a Stepford Wife.

    • undergalaxy says:

      I do think it’s unfortunate that, in many of the shots of her at events with Billy Cambridge, she’s always looking at him. Like a kid trying to join in at a dinner party.

    • Nic919 says:

      She appeals to the crowd that likes their women submissive and silent. It’s no coincidence that many of the stans are linked to MAGA and pro Brexit accounts. When they say she is regal or has grace what they mean is that she says nothing and looks pretty. It’s surprising that so many women are ok with this, but then again Margaret Atwood didn’t create aunt Lydia’s and commanders wives out of thin air.

  29. Sof says:

    I like the dress, perhaps it would have looked better if the belt was tighter or higher.

  30. Tw says:

    This is very pretty and she nailed the shoes, for once;)

  31. undergalaxy says:

    I really like this dress, except for the awful neckline.

    Her brows are too dark, too.

  32. Eenie Googles says:

    I actually really like it and it suits her but it’s not a day dress. Especially not with a blow out.

  33. MsIam says:

    Awful, don’t like the fabric (like sheer curtains) or the color (not a fan of teal, at least not the whole dress, maybe blended with other colors). With that said, it looks like a Kate dress, appropriate and boring and matronly. Not saying that she has to wear mini skirts like Amal Clooney, but Kate is younger than her and it just seems like all the life has been zapped out of her. Wish she would take more fashion risks and liven up just a bit.

    • kerwood says:

      She DOES look like the life is being sucked out of her. I get the feeling this feud is ALL William and she must be getting fed up. She’s going to have to bust her ass to match what Meghan did in South Africa, and I don’t think she’s up for it.

    • Some chick says:

      She’s visiting an Islamic cultural center. A miniskirt would be disrespectul! Boring and matronly is appropriate! It’s nice to see her with a little ease. I actually like this dress a lot more than some of her other choices.

      Much of it comes down the colors. I like the interplay of colors here, others don’t. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

      • Maria says:

        Some chick, you think Muslim fashion is by necessity boring and matronly?…

      • MsIam says:

        @Some chick, no one says that Kate should wear a mini skirt. But she does not have to dress like she is 20 years older than her age. And Kate dresses (for the most part) like this all. the.time. Not just when she is visiting an Islamic cultural center. It almost feels like she saving all these frumpy dresses and coat dresses for when she is Kween in 15 or 20 years. They’ll be perfect for her then.

      • Some chick says:

        Of course not. I’m just saying that taking the conservative approach here shows respect. Her typically shorter, tighter style wouldn’t work as well as this does. You know, the dresses people criticize for being “buttony.” I think it was a good choice, and *I* do not think it is either boring nor matronly. I’m just saying *if it were* it would still be more appropriate than another coatdress or flippy little miniskirt suit.

        Atypically for me, I am Team Kate all the way on this one. And I’m really looking forward to the style reports from the upcoming tour.

    • Guest says:

      Have you seen the comments on here when she flashes her sexy legs? Lol, oh the horror! She needs to put them away! There was a similar dress she wore earlier this year blue polka dots I think but she showed a whole lotta leg and people were quick to criticise.

      • lucylee says:

        But you do know that on here it is Saint Meghan and Devil Kate don’t you?

        The level of hypocrisy is staggering.

      • Becks1 says:

        Have you……seen the majority of comments on this post? Overwhelmingly positive for what is a really typical Kate dress with unremarkable styling.

      • Nic919 says:

        It really bothers some people that this isn’t a site that bashes Meghan non stop and praises Kate for existing. All these gaslighting accusations of hypocrisy really fall flat especially as there has been criticism just in the last few days of what Meghan wore to the mosque and her fashion in general for the tour.

        As for this outfit, it was typical theme dressing by Kate. She’s worn worse and she has worn better. At least there wasn’t button overload.

      • lucylee says:

        @Becks1 – makes a change – most posts about Kate seem to me to be knee jerk, i.e. it is Kate so everything she does is worthless and everything she wears is horrible. Many of those same posters are up in arms about any criticism of Meghan.

        @Nic919 Just to make it clear, I am neutral on the subject of both duchesses. I just think those people who criticise the “hatred” towards Meghan are as guilty themselves in their (almost) nonstop criticism of Kate.

        I know that if I come to a Kate article it will be Meghan this and Meghan that and vice versa on Meghan posts. Despite what the press and posters say it isn’t actually a competition.

  34. Bookworm1858 says:

    I feel like the fact that there are no buttons is a huge improvement for Kate! Love this color on her.

  35. kerwood says:

    That’s a ‘no’ for me, dog. I think she looks matronly. She’s a young woman, she has the kind of figure that designers live for and THIS is the best she can do? And after all the moaning about Meghan’s belts, Keen Katie wears one and it looks just as bad. Was she thinking ‘anything you can do, I can do better’? Because she was wrong.

    Kate doesn’t even look like she’s trying to be perky or upbeat in these pictures. She looks tired. Maybe she’s thinking about all the REAL work she’s going to have to do now that Meghan’s shown what a royal visit should look like. That must be wearing her out.

    • Guest says:

      Lol wrong is Meghan’s ‘fashions’ on the S.A tour. She looked good twice on the day they met Tutu and his sister. Before and after that? no, just no, far too casual, unflattering and ill fitting. All the women around her looked so much better in their outfits. Kate was modestly dressed and appropriately for the occasion. Put a lovely headscarf on her hair and her look would have been taken up a notch. This is what we will be seeing on the Pakistan tour.

  36. Original Jenns says:

    I love 70s vibe clothing, so I love this dress. For awhile, the Target in my area had clothing that was basically if the 90s and the 70s had a baby. I was in love with everything. For me,a thicker heel would have been a more fashionable twist with the flowy feel of the fabric, but I think Kate is more comfortable with the stiletto paired with dresses.

  37. 2lazy4username says:

    Love the dress. Shoes are all wrong. I feel like she’s often just a dash off.

  38. N’importe quoi says:

    It’s fine. It’s halal. I’d like it without the lighter green but whatever’ It’s ok. The two colours make me think of south Asian fashion maybe thats her idea too.

  39. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    Barbie’s look would benefit from better posture. Her posture would benefit from better nutrition (eating more/better).

  40. RoyalBlue says:

    It’s a big No for me. No to the nightie material, No to the cloth belt around her waist and NO to those cutsey bows around her wrist. It’s awful for something that’s not an evening engagement. I can’t.

  41. Mimi says:

    Cain & Unable: the two dullest people on Earth.

  42. sandra says:

    Looks very comfortable and the way it moved in the wind was so elegant. But I must say, Kate is so thin these days, it makes me uncomfortable.

  43. JanetFerber says:

    Yes, she kinda does give off the vibe of Stepford wife. And William is aging poorly.

  44. shells_bells says:

    I like this color on her and the earrings look nice with the dress, but I find the whole look confusing. It’s an easy, breezy summer dress with very severe shoes. I actually like shoes, but they’re not right with this dress. Would be awesome with some skinny jeans or trousers and a blazer.
    Also, I agree with the commenters above… she needs to do something with her hair. The color isn’t great for her and I think a long bob would look really great on her, kind of how Reese Witherspoon is wearing her hair (I noticed how cute it was in the video posted yesterday)

  45. MadisonJ says:

    It looks like a nightgown from Little House on the Prairie. This woman has no personality. She’s a clothes hanger…that’s all

  46. Sar says:

    The high neck, prairie dress style is really popular right now. I don’t think she looks dated at all, just very British-aristo.

  47. Flying Fish says:

    The color of the dress compliments her complexion and that’s all I got!

  48. s says:

    This is a gorgeous look to where to this event – appropriate design for the setting, beautiful color and it fits her well. I am very excited to see what she wears during the trip to Pakistan.

  49. Maria says:

    I wish she’d dye her hair back to darker chocolate brown. And I prefer her in richer tones like darker blues and reds and greens. But other than that she looks pretty.

  50. FuefinaWG says:

    She needs color on her lips.

  51. Amelie says:

    Adding that I later read that the older guy greeting William and Kate IS HIS HIGHNESS THE AGA KHAN. Well THAT’S a big deal! I was actually thinking he looked vaguely like Prince Amyn but I knew it wasn’t him. Well they do resemble each other but I had forgotten what His Highness looked like! (put my comment in the wrong place, referencing above about how I talked about the Aga Khan’s brother was President of a nonprofit I worked for so I met the brother a few times). This also explains why Kate dressed so modestly. His Highness is the spiritual/religious leader of the Ismaili Muslims branch of Islam.

    (Forgot to add I also met the Aga Khan’s daughter once, Princess Zahra Aga Khan).

  52. IntheKnow says:

    Kate looks freshly botoxed. If William turns out to be truly like his father (he is firmly heading that way) Kate’s “hard work” to be Queen may not pay off if Big Willy divorces her. I know people keep thinking he wont do that because she lets him do what ever he wants. I think it is entirely possible he could. I think he will get bored with her and given he’s banging rose, he already is.

    She doesn’t bring anything to this relationship to keep him interested. Sure, the is great mother in my opinion, but in terms of adding anything else to keep willy around..I don’t see it. When the kids are grown up and have their own lives and Willy is still wandering, she will find herself in a terrible spot.

    • Guest says:

      No she won’t. I have realised commenters on here don’t seem to understand how and why these types of relationships work. It’s not about being bored with your wife… wealthy men, especially those with status, will always cheat and the wives turn a blind eye. Some women even have affairs of their own and it’s all good. Their marriages do not work like yours. Love is secondary. Trust and discretion and loyalty to the family are key. Which is why women on here won’t marry well and enjoy luxury lifestyles. The Rose girl was married and had the heirs before she hit her mid twenties or near enough thus securing her position. She gets to have flings with Will whilst her husband carries on his affairs in France. Her sister did the same thing with that older bloke she married. It’s a win win for all type of situation. If you want to call us social climbers? Fine. We win while you struggle to work and keep a roof over your heads all because you chose unambitious men who cannot provide the lifestyle you really want.

        I see. So enjoy your win-win situation. For surely, last night while your husband was banging his mistress and paying her rent, you were weeping in your pillow and at the same time kissing that 50 million that brings you joy because You are winning at life. Today you will be having deep conversations with the pool-boy about the results of your mammogram and share concerns with your hairdresser about your desire to get fifi the poodle fixed because she keeps running away to greet Fido the bulldog next door. Family gatherings are uptight and brief, who has time for scrabble or bridge. but it’s all worth it. what joy that brings to aristocrats.

    Strange as it may sound I miss Kate`s coat dresses. Not the ones with 50 buttons army corporal 1945 look , but some of the others. I prefer them to some of these midi flowery dresses she has been wearing. However it may not be the flowery dresses that may be a problem, but the way Kate carries herself. Recently she seems like life is slowly being sucked out of her. Her dress for this event is O.k

    What happened to the vibrant, starting to work hard Kate, we saw between september 2017 and april 2018? She was pregnant with Louis, seemed full of life and was attending her engagements with such gladness.

    • IntheKnow says:

      I imagine being married to Willy would suck the life out of anyone. She could divorce his dumb ass and still be set for life and find someone who will be passionate about her.

      • Mrs.Krabapple says:

        I have a really hard time believing Kate truly “loves” the man who treated her the way William did. But I can believe that her brain plays tricks on itself, and after chasing/waiting so long for him, marriage to William became a “goal” or a “prize” that she couldn’t allow herself to fail at (otherwise, all those years of her life would have gone to waste). So now she’s content with the “prize” she won, even if she doesn’t “love” him, because she didn’t fail. If she left William, that would be failure.

      • L4frimaire says:

        Kate has nothing to go to if she left William. She’s not going anywhere and settling into her future role, now that she’s the perfect future queen consort with her own mute button. The tabloids would crucify her, and their social set would freeze her and her family out of existence. They’d take her kids too, being future heirs and property of the crown. Not to mention they’d probably screw her out of a decent divorce settlement. They went cheap on Fergie and she been hustling ever since. She’d be in the same position as that Dubai princess who had to run away and plead with British courts for asylum. Kate is fine where she is and William is her world.

        Princess Haya is a Born Jordanian Royal. She married him for the lifestyle and money. He is a literal billionaire. She will be fine, believe me. Kate and Haya have nothing in common well apart from the above I guess lol.

    Kate’s the better dressed of the two. That awful bland suit William is wearing makes him look like the doorman at a mid-market condo. Pants look slightly too short and those luggy shoes are just blah. These people have access to Savile Row tailoring. No style at all.

  55. Kereru says:

    I love it! She looks great. The colour is spectacular on her.

  56. Canadiangirl says:

    I love her look! She looks beautiful.
    I like both Meghan and Kate, and think they both have their own style and can each pull off their own unique look. But I have to admit, i think kate always looks so much put together. I really didnt care for meghan’s looks for the African tour, even though she looked beautiful, happy and relaxed. Anyway no shade, just my opinion.

  57. SheilaB says:

    Kate’s an empty barrel. No personality No thoughts or ideas…nothing, empty, void..,even her clothes are boring. The bar is literally centimeters from the ground and she still can’t jump over it…

    • Raluca says:

      So are your comments, but that doesn’t seem to stop you from repeating the same thing over and over again. Truly, the comments on all Kate posts are so repetitively vitriolic. Why even bother with so much negativity?

    • lucylee says:

      @ SheilaB Know her personally do you?

  58. My3cents says:

    Oh my gosh, it’s the mom who will be Queen!
    I hardly recognized her with the revolutionary new hair and new groundbreaking style she’s sporting! (Sarcasm)

    • Le4Frimaire says:

      I don’t know why they keep pushing that narrative. The Brexiteers, and over 50s conservatives and gammons love her because she doesn’t make waves, upset the establishment or believe in feminist nonsense like working and having opinions.
