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 beautiful as ever!

Certainly not homely – she has such an awesome smile. While she’s thin, I don’t think she looks unhealthy in the least.

I love how she wears her hair down, it suits her best and don’t we all want to look our best when out?

I wish everyone would stop referring to her as “Kate”, she is Princess Catherine now and it’s highly disrespectful. It’s bad enough Americans show little to no respect for anything now-a-days, let’s try to get this right at least.

She looks absolutely gorgeous and happy! I love all the looks, particularly the McQueen coat and grey hat.

Seriously, Margaret?? I don’t think it’s that big of a deal what people refer to her as in casual conversation. As long as they’re not addressing her as Kate to her face. Wake up on the wrong side of the bed this morning?!

.. what makes her beautiful, to me, instead of just very pretty, very attractive, very stylish, etc- is that somehow, despite the impeccable taste in clothes, despite the obvious skill she has in choosing outfits that are classic, modern, and always appropriate at the same time (! no mean feat)- Princess Kate’s innate poise and a dignified modesty shine through, too.

@Margaret – what’s worse is she is calling her Princess as that’s incorrect as well…if you’re going to call people on something make sure you know the facts. She will not be Princess until Charles take the thrown and Queen when William does. How is this any different than calling Diana “Di”.

How are people comparing BEAUTFUL Dutchess Catherine to her sister “Flippa~Pippa”,
Dutchess Catherine OUT SHINES her sister
by a zillion miles & then some!!!!! “Flippa~Pippa”
is homely looking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

William done well! She will always make him proud. And let’s not forget about the gorgeous, handsome Prince William. He is a hotttttt and well dressed man himself.

I just don’t think she’s anything special. She looks older than 29, she reminds me of Camilla Parker Bowles in that Camilla always looked older than her age. Kate is so overrated, she’s just okay. The press is trying to make her more than she is, when in reality she is too thin and she looks like any dark haired girl who is average to just okay pretty, she’s nothing special, in my opinion. She and her sister are average looking. This socialclimbing girl chased the Prince for 9yrs and he finally caved in.

My favorite is the blue coat she wore for Prince Philip’s Birthday. I love Kate’s style. I am sure she is playing it safe since this is her first royal outings, but I would like to see her punch it up with some brighter colors in the future.
