I finally figured out what it is about Kate's style that I dislike. To me, she always manages to look dowdy wearing juvenile silhouettes.  This coat/dress is a little girl style/silhouette.  It's something she wears a lot -- a kid's ice skater outfit.

 

I dont know if she likes it, or if she feels it's best for her (and Pippa's) extremely long torso. Either way, I don't like it on a grown woman.

Kate always looks great, has the queen always been short ,or is it her age?

When you lose some one you L~O~V~E, that Memory of them, becomes a TREASURE.

She was 5'4" at her tallest. Now she's very stooped over and older. I'd guess she lost 4 inches due to both. Kate is 5'9" and wearing high heels. That's about a 1 foot difference.

i love the way they both look - the Queen pretty and noticeable in pink and the Duchess in grey/black, not drawing attention to herself. i like the way Kate has been leaning with her hats of late -  they seem a natural extension and not distracting.

 

they both look like they are enjoying the event.

She is just amazing.  Doing visits at age, what?  93 or so.  Crazy she is still on the job and healthy.

Duchess Kate is off to her second engagement of the day, a visit to London's Foundling Museum, which explores the history of the Foundling Hospital, the U.K.'s first children's charity and public art gallery. During her trip today, the Duchess of Cambridge is set to learn about "how the organization works with art and artists to transform the lives of vulnerable and marginalized young people." Kate is an art lover after all.

 

Kate was named patron of the Foundling Museum hours ahead of her engagement. "The Duchess has a longstanding interest in both the arts and supporting vulnerable families, and this patronage will further highlight the beneficial impact that art and creativity has on emotional wellbeing," Kensington Palace said in a press release.

 


For the event, the duchess wore a gray Catherine Walker coat dress that she wore during appearance with the Queen earlier this morning. She also kept on the same tights and block-heeled pumps, but ditched the fascinator this time around. She also wore her pink morganite/diamond drop earrings.

It might be a dress with a zipper up the back.
