There’s no rest for the weary … and that includes royals! Following their glamorous night out Thursday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined the royal family for several celebrations over the weekend, which carried into Monday afternoon. And throughout all of the various events, Catherine was her usual stylish self. The newlywed first stunned Saturday at Trooping the Colour, Queen Elizabeth II’s 85th birthday celebration, wearing a white cotton and wool-blend Alexander McQueen piqué coat and black hat by Sylvia Fletcher of James Lock and Co. Later that day, she joined newly single sister Pippa at a friend’s wedding in Berkshire, England, sporting the same topper and a black-and-white Zara dress she’d worn out in 2007. Sunday, Catherine helped fête Prince Philip on his 90th birthday, wearing a bright blue coat she’d chosen for a friend’s 2009 wedding, accessorized with her nude L.K. Bennett pumps and a Philip Treacy hat. And Monday, she greeted the public during William’s festive Order of the Garter ceremony in a long dove-gray dress and coat by Katherine Hooker, matching hat custom created by Rachel Trevor Morgan (who also makes toppers for the Queen) and suede gray “Malone” pumps by Rupert Sanderson. It seems the royal weekend was just a brief, stylish preview of what’s to come on Catherine and William’s North American tour in July.

she looks good.
but i’m going to go ahead and point out that it’s easy to look good when you have money..

I think the new Dutchess always looks very pulled together even when she’s dressed down and casual. She’s a stunning woman with grace, elegance, and her own classic sense of style. However, rather than focusing on her clothing I’ll be much more interested in what charities she becomes involved in and how much time she’ll spend working with them.

@Leanne~ Homely features? You can’t be serious. If that’s what homely looks like then sign me up. I’d love to look half as good when I’m dressed up as she does when she’s in jeans and a sweater. Homely features ~ HA!

I love her she is such a breath of fresh air to the royal family. I love anything she wears, she has a fab bod and style. Love you Kate!!!

Actually she is a Duchess only, she is NOT Princess William, she is only Duchess Catherine, it is stated clearly on the Royal Official website that Catherine is only Duchess Catherine, she is not Princess William, she is Duchess only. She is not like Diana, she was only given a Duchess title. It is incorrect to refer to her as anything but HRH Duchess of Cambridge, she is not a Princess at all.

Anyone that says she is too skinny and needs to gain weight probably has a little extra weight to spare themselves. For some of us that is our natural body type.

Sam on

She’s so pretty and has great taste! I think she’d look even better if she gained 10 lbs, but she’s gorgeous as is.

Amber on

I love her in the blue coat. She is absolutely beautiful. She is the epitamy of a Princess.

Julie on

I think that she is beautiful. I am also exicted that she wears some of her clothes more than once to events. It shows some class and that she isn’t afraid of being seen in the same thing twice.

She is not Royal material…visually or mentally…I do not have anything against her but she doesn’t have that “Royal something”
