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.

Although her clothing is not my style, I still find her to be classic, sleek and beautiful. For those that think she is homely looking or average, who are you comparing her with and what did you prefer? A royal woman that looked and dressed like Paris Hilton, Kim K, and Lindsey?! UGH!

Her official name is now Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, the wife of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge. And she’s gorgeous. Maybe a bit on the thin side, but as we get older we tend to “fill out” a bit. Give her a few years. I love her best in the blue coat. Shades of Diana coming back: style, grace, beauty.

Kate is just stunning with amazingly chic style that’s conservative/appropriate yet never boring. She’s right up there with Diana and Jackie O in my book. She even rocks those silly fascinator hats!

I love her in the dove gray coat and hat. I think she is stunning and always looks just perfect.
