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.

Beautiful. Her style is elegant and classic. Sophisticated femme. Good role model.

I love that she is not only gorgeous, but so appropriate in what she wears. I too would love to see hair up, a little shorter maybe, something else. But she’s beautiful and love that she wears things over again.

Please note how different her face looks from the picture linked to the Daily Mail. She definitely had some surgery… Probably fair enough for the amount of exposure she has.

Kate has charme. You can’t learn that.
You’ve got it or not. She has wonderful legs!
too and an elegant and fresh style.

I love that she’s being (relatively) frugal and re-using her clothes! And, yeah, she’s gorgeous!

sam scott – The person you know who supposedly saw Catherine in person was probably jealous. I don’t see bad skin, you would be able to tell. The pictures are taken as they are and would be be hard to photoscope actual pictures. Other people who have seen her in person never said anything about her having bad skin.

I’m Kate’s age and find her outfits completely age-appropriate. I’d wear all of them. She looks fantastic. Completely gorgeous and very British. She also looks healthy. That’s what a woman who eats well and exercises looks like. There are a lot of Grand Aunts on this board wanting some fat cheeks to pinch…but there’s an obesity problem in this country…

I doubt very much Kate wants to be a second Diana. I agree she is dressing very conservatively but her effort not to be a fashionista seems very purposeful. Right now there is a good balance between Kate and William–people are interesting and excited about them both. Kate is smart enough not to try to (like the immature Diana)become a ‘superstar’ instead of just the Duchess of Cambridge–she wants to be an asset to her husband and the Royal family–not have everything she does be about what she’s wearing.
Also, what is all this carping on ‘oh, she’s ordinary looking’, ‘ooh, she has bad skin”, blah, blah, blah…Prince William didn’t set out to marry a supermodel–he married a woman he’s been friends with and known for years, someone he trusts and obviously enjoys being with. I think that’s just a LITTLE more important that whether she has ‘perfect’ skin (who does?) or what she weighs. Sometimes our collective shallowness as people is depressing.

Love Kate’s style and it’s her style not someone who is picking for her. Also, love that she recycles her clothing like all of the rest of us. Maybe she’ll bring back hats – I love them??

Kate is beautiful! My favorite is her black and white dress with her black fascinator. She is so stylish. I love her elegant, classy taste and gotta love her hats! And yaaah!! She wears her clothes out more than once!
