Cathy and Bill continue their Scotland tour and she’s clearly sticking to her long held preferences for extremely matchy looks.

We have never seen one of these “open a tiny curtain to reveal a plaque” engagements look anything less than a little silly, but a tradition’s a tradition. Her ensemble is fine – in every sense of the word. It’s both of high quality and also perfectly acceptable. The only point of interest is the tartan, which some might consider a deliberate style choice on her part, but her public history indicates that she really does love an all-one color look or one with very minor variations in tone and hue. The Queen does this as well, but she always does it with extremely bright and eye-catching colors so she stands out in crowds and pictures. You can’t always say that about Kate’s preferences for all-brown or all-navy blue ensembles. She’s just not a “pop of color” kind of gal.
