    Default The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge: Service Of Remembrance in Belgium (8/4/2014)

    From dailymail.co.uk

    Queen Mathilde and King Philippe of Belgium pose with the Duchess and Duke of Cambridge in Liege on Monday, August 4, 2014

    The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge represented Queen Elizabeth in Belgium at a ceremony at the Allies' Memorial at Cointe, overlooking the Belgian city of Liege, the first of several events commemorating the outbreak of the First World War.














    The sun rises behind wild poppies in a field in Flanders this morning on a day which marks 100 years since Britain entered the First World War. The flower became a symbol of remembrance after growing from the battlefields following the conflict.

    Queen Mathilde = WIN
    Kate = FAIL, especially the frou frou ditzy hat. She really has craptastic taste in hats.

    i want to like mathilde's dress - the cut is nice, i like the colour, but something about the fabric or those little pearls embroidered at the side of the waist, says "geriatric". and the pearls don't help. i like pearls, but you can't wear them with mumsy shit or you just look old.

    kate's hat is actually kind of cute but the rest of her outfit manages to be both twee and granny. fucking awful.

    I like Kate's outfit.

    Mathilde's dress looks like a nightgown.

    hate the seam across the bust of kate's jacket. she has zero taste. even bad taste would be better than this shite.

    I like her hat. I think the colors on the pleated parts are really pretty.

    I think the odd seam is to give her the semblance of a bust or some girth. It's not too bad for a remembrance service. The choice is limited. I agree about her awful hats though.
