I simply can't get over how straight out of 1985 that blue dress look is. that is seriously exactly how my mother used to dress when I was little.

I'm all for her dressing conservatively, but come on, don't be decades behind.

that "dress" looks too frumpy for words

Yes the dress is frumpy and looks a bit tired but what I can't overlook is her terrible posture. Why wear heels all the time if you don't stand up straight?

The color is very nice, but I think the dress is not very flattering to her frame

It was a nicely worded speech once it got going but the pauses at the start were a little awkward.

I don't wanna be nice. I think it's clever to swear

Is this really the same dress her mother wore? I don't know why I'm surprised. Fair enough if it was actually nice and suited her but it's neither. I wish she would go back to whoever was helping her in Canada/US because her style is truly horrible

That's a really pretty blue color but I'm not too keen on the fit/design of the dress. Although, I do think it's cool that her mother and her share clothes (just like my mom and I!). I've seen on other sites that people are in a big huff about it but I think it's commendable because she's being thrifty... and who doesn't want a thrifty princess? It shows that she's pretty "normal."

Kate gave a nice speech too, at first it was a little slow but I can hardly blame her because I'm sure she was nervous, but all in all it was a good first speech. Also, we hardly ever get to hear her speak (and this was the first time giving a speech on her own really) but I have to say she has a really lovely voice. It's calming and I'm sure this is only the first of many speaking engagements.

I like the blue dress, though something with a TAD more drama once in awhile might be nice. It can't be too outrageous or often--she's acting in a public capacity--but something a little different occasionally. She always looks good, though.

The speech is well done--I think for her first time, she should be proud of herself.

I like the dress. The blue is gorgeous and vivid and the cut is elegant in my opinion.

She needs to stop sharing clothes with her mother. Its sad, but her mother looks better in the dresses most of the time.

SHOPPING IN king's road
King's Rd is really my favourite place to shop, but whenever I do go, Kate is never there
Wonder if she popped into WHISTLES/REISS/ZARA/JIGSAW/HOBBS or LK? they are all there!

Chiming in a tad late. I think it's adorable that she still shares clothes with her mother. Cuz we all know her clothing budget is probably way up there, if not unlimited. It makes seem more normal. That she hasn't forgotten her background.

But, that dress is too old for her. Someone said it looked like was the 1980s and I agree (specifically 1985-1987 where everything was oversized and formal.)
