Do you think Kate gets it "right" compare to other royals?

Needless to say its a DM link

Do you think Kate looks the most stylish? I think Sophie looks lovely, great colour and lovely hat. I think Kate has an advantage as she is very slim / toned but not sure if her dress is actually the nicest. I think she also gets all her stuff made to measure / altered so it fits her better.

Bea and Zara's have got very crushed which makes them look less polished. Autumn Phillips looks nice but can only just see her!

Eugenie's is a no from me! too frou frou.

She doesn't always get it right, but she is basically a stylish, well-put- together woman...and yes, it helps enormously that she is tall and slim.

I like her conservative day style, but I'd love to see her being slightly edgier with her evening wear. She has the figure for it.

ThreeForAPound Tue 20-Jun-17 15:35:22

And yes, she is definitely the best styled of the lot, but probably has the most help!

I think she definitely looks most polished.

Sophie a close second

Zara I suspect doesn't give a shit and I like that.

Bea and Eugeinie just don't seem to get it right which is sad. They both have great figures.

Sophie and HM look incredible, I much prefer their bright colours and vibrancy to Kate's pale cream (which she seems to wear regularly).

That old Camilla gal always gives good hat. She never looks rumpled, either, which helps.

Yeah she's perfect I want to be her when I grow up.

WipsGlitter Tue 20-Jun-17 15:45:47

Camilla is fab. She's found her look and it really works for her.

FurcoatnoNicks Tue 20-Jun-17 15:47:00

Get a proper bra!
They all look fab.

Her outfit there is gorgeous. She looks very good in pale colours and with her hair up. I think her natural style is a bit boring, but she usually looks good - sometimes fantastic. . I really detest those wedge espadrilles she wears sometimes - Pippa wears them too - a closed toe shoe should not have a wedge!

I think Sophie Wessex is quite stylish generally. The Duchess of Cornwall usually looks great - she knows what suits her.

Princess Eugenie is beautiful but she doesn't often dress very well.

All the Royal women seem to have decent legs and hair, which is a big help!

God they must be BAKING shock

AdalindSchade Tue 20-Jun-17 15:49:56

I don't like Kate's style much but she does rock that white lace.
Eugenia needs a better bra. She could look amazing in something edgy and well cut. I bet she would look awesome in Vivienne Westwood.

Eugenie needs a bra intervention
Kates hat is very frumpy

2014newme Tue 20-Jun-17 15:50:30

Yes must be roasting! All of them!

WipsGlitter Tue 20-Jun-17 15:53:13

Eugenie definitely needs a bra intervention!

And totally boiling.

They do all look like they're having lots of fun with each other though.

UsernameInvalid66 Tue 20-Jun-17 15:53:42

Duchess of Cornwall all the way for me - except the necklace which looks a bit old-fashioned. I would definitely want to wear something loose and light coloured and she's managed that without sacrificing duchessly elegance!

BreezyBreeze Tue 20-Jun-17 15:54:24

I've said it a million times but until a similar article is written about the princes I will not click.

Im more interested in what they say and do.

Which is disappointing so far too. Come on princesses lets hear an opinion on something.

Oblomov17 Tue 20-Jun-17 15:55:01

Kate sometimes looks old before her years.

They all have lovely figures. And presumably lots of help!

mellowbean Tue 20-Jun-17 15:58:35

Kate's clothes are horrible with the exception of her winter coats.

Even though her clothes are made to measure they sometimes gap at the hip or waist making her look like she's lost even more weight.

Truckingalong Tue 20-Jun-17 16:04:10

Breezy, I'm with you but the blokes don't have the same variety and choice of outfits, so there's not a lot to comment on.

Kate looks incredible at ascot today. She has a fabulous figure and amazing legs and can wear almost anything and look good.

bunnybleu Tue 20-Jun-17 16:04:16

I thought they must all be boiling in those outfits today, the men included!

I like a lot of what Kate wears generally, but I often think she gets it wrong somehow and I can't put my finger on why. I think she dresses too old/formally for her age, and I don't think the high necks she seems to go for help (although that could be because I don't like them on me!) I just think that so often her outfit is lovely apart from 'something'

Camilla usually gets it right I think.

As for the men, I did pity them dressed up in full uniform for Trooping the Colour the other day!

bunnybleu Tue 20-Jun-17 16:05:18

Oh and I agree about Eugenie, crikey today's outfit doesn't flatter her ample bosom!

UsernameInvalid66 Tue 20-Jun-17 16:05:44

Breezy I think you're right in theory, but the men don't show much variety - maybe if they did, the press would have to start taking notice of them!

2014newme Tue 20-Jun-17 16:06:53

Ample bosom is right, she's wearing her boobs in her waist

dingit Tue 20-Jun-17 16:07:29

She looks like a crinoline loo roll holder grin

Madbengalmum Tue 20-Jun-17 16:09:22

I do like Eugenie's dress with the right bra though.
