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.

I agree Lizzie. Pippa’s pretty but not near as pretty as Kate. Kate is absolutely gorgeous!

Lovely! Poor thing though to be so scrutinized over every little thing. I would go bonkers! And now her poor sis is too. Pippa is in the news almost as much as Catherine.

She always looks lovely. So glad to see news about Kate and NOT Pippa. She seems to be trying to steal her royal sisters thunder. As if she could!

Leeann, you think she’s homely? You obviously must be a beauty queen to think that then. Perhaps you’re a bit jealous of her beauty?

I think The Duchess is a very beautiful woman and very stylish…but if the camera adds 10lbs than I can only imagine what a waif she is in person. She needs to gain about 10-20 lbs.

SHe’s beautiful in whatever she wears. She has a presence that is so relaxed and she had great fashion taste even before becoming Duchess of Cambridge. She represents the Royal family very well.

I think that Kate, Catherine, Princess Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge . . . whatever she goes by, positively glows!

She has the ability to wear everything well. Her height and body shape is made to show fashion to its best. She is very polished and poised.

Kate is handling herself well under pressure and it seems like William is more involved in helping her assimilate into the Royal Family than his father was to his mother. Knowing that she has his love and full support, that alone will help her stay afloat while she learns the royal ropes.

One thing I noticed in their engagement pictures was the love in their eyes and true happiness on their faces. Both glowed with youth and love. Very refreshing and inspiring.

Best wishes to the newlyweds. Enjoy life!

Kate is a Duchess, just as Sarah the Duchess of York was, who married Pr.Andrew. Kate is not a Princess.
The Queen’s office at Buckingham Palace stated quite clearly in the UK press, Catherine is a Duchess. She does not in any way carry the Princess title. She is not a Princess, no matter how many times PEOPLE magazine tries to make her one.

Andrea on

Actually- she’s NOT “Princess Catherine”. She is Princess William, Duchess of Cambridge. In order to be referred as a “Princess” in your own right you must be born into the royal family. Otherwise you assume the name of your spouse. She is lovely, always smiling and anyone who thinks she is homely is clearly jealous.

I LOVE HER! I think she is a great role model.
She is simply wonderful! Someone I would want my daughter to be like.
We have so many media wh**es whiling to do anything and wear anything to get attention. She is one of the few that exudes grace, classiness, and dignity.
I wish the Royal couple a lifetime of happiness together.
