I don't like the green dress. It's too bright and at times you can see her undergarments.

It irritates me too that people (not on this board but social media) are fawning over the fact she hired a dress and are ignoring the fact she wore new, expensive, items for the rest of the visit, bar the chanel jacket, as well as that Kate has never hired a dress/outfit when she has had opportunity to do so and send a message about sustainable clothing in the last 11 and a half years of her being a royal.

THIS  Star

Agreed, that in many ways Kate has to be the "eye candy" or "fly the flag for British design" etc etc etc but on this trip especially, re-wears, re-designs, and hey, even more rentals? -- would have been the way to go. 

I find it deeply hypocritical of her to wear a (basically) all-new wardrobe on a trip to honor persons/organizations who are working for environmental sustainability.

They could do so much better PR wise if she stated (and if she did!) that she is renting most of her clothes (would make sense, really). If she really likes something, she could keep it then anyway.

I agree too that Kate has a unique position as the flag bearer of fashion, specifically British fashion, and I honestly don't begrudge her buying new pieces IF she hasnt got something similar already in her wardrobe, and If she isn't trying to promote sustainability at the same time. The mulberry tartan dress is a good example of something different (and will probably be reworn to a future engagement in Scotland  Halo) but for a visit themed on sustainability and the environment, a bit of a no no. I wouldn't mind Kate going more like Vickan (house of prairie dresses aside), Vic rewear a lot of her clothing, and seems genuinely focused and engaged on themes of sustainability.

The thing with Kate's fashion is that it is largely timeless and classic, so wouldn't appear too dated several years after a rewear, and her figure is amazing that she is still able to wear clothes from 2011, and if ot afford high standard tailoring.
I don't think Kate is a virtue signaller, but to the many who don't closely follow her, I can imagine they may view her as such.

Instead of new clothes, she could bring out some “new jewelry” that we haven’t seen in decades. That would certainly get a lot of attention and be sustainable as well. If now not, when? She is next in line to the throne and she should be reworking and rewearing some of these jewels. And she doesn’t need to fly the flag for Alexander McQueen, they were fine without her.

I wonder if Charles would be open to reworking of some of the pieces that have been in the vaults for over 100 years? Especially those that are from the Victorian/Edwardian/Pre-WWII eras.

Those giant stomachers and heavy necklaces could be a source.

I would love to see them do that, though I'm not sure what they would be reworked into. But as some of the tiaras are considered verboten because of their provenance, at least for now, perhaps a couple of new tiaras, maybe with matching necklaces and earrings. The only royal lady I've seen recently wearing a stomacher is Max, and I think she wore it on a belt . . .

My wish would be for them to repair the Strathmore Rose Tiara, along with the Oriental Circlet and restore the The Nizam of Hyderabad tiara. I've no doubt they still have the frame, and the brooches that formed part of the tiara were worn by HLM.

I'm reserving judgement until I see Cams wear it, but that Burmese Ruby tiara might best be redone  - at least some of those diamonds came from the late lamented Nizam of Hyderabad tiara. Back they should go!

I’m not sure they will bring out any new jewels. Some people are calling for some of the jewels to be returned to their rightful countries and I doubt the BRF wants to bring more attention to their colonizing history.

Mary has worn the brooch from the Ruby parure on a belt. Mostly though we just don't have the fashion for stomachers like they did in the past.

Williams speech

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZ2O_OIcOsY



It seems obvious to me that both of them have put in the work with coaches to be better public speakers. Kate was historically ridiculously bad but at Earthshot, she carried herself well. It was short but well done. William was never a bad public speaker, but now he is so much better. Teleprompters help but they are both upping their game. As they should, they are a day late and a dollar short but at least there is real improvement.

Yes, public speaking is not for everyone and it's difficult to train yourself. I feel for them, especially Kate. I would feel so self-conscious every time I spoke, knowing that every word and nuance would be dissected.
