We never got the impression Mrs. Cathy ever really loved her royal duties, but we bet if she has a favorite type, this one’s near the top of the list.
Don’t get us wrong. We’re always going to be more interested in the kinds of royal appearances that give us discussable fashion moments. And we don’t doubt that Cathy likes clothes and likes to dress up. But she’s a pregnant mother of two young children, and her job requires her to get up and smile in front of hundreds of strangers all the time, while pictures of her doing so get rocketed around the world in real time. How could she not relish an excuse to just let it all go and give her poor feet a break at the same time?
Style point (yes, we found one): It’s to her credit that she’s in real workout gear that looks like it has a little bit of mileage on it. Sure, it’s all pristine and perfectly fitted, but it’s not super high-end designer gear. Good optics. There’s a time and place for a Duchess to wear her Burberry or Erdem pieces, but this wasn’t it.
