Comment Policy

Healthy, respectful discussion is not only desired; it is encouraged. A debate on the length of a hemline or the merits of a sheath over a fit and flare silhouette isn’t just enjoyable; it’s educational. In those instances and almost all others, people agree to disagree. It is not okay to refer to someone as a fool. Nor is it acceptable to belittle another’s opinion or to label it as stupid, idiotic, ridiculous, or to use any other pejorative term in responding to someone’s comment.

The site’s primary purpose is style-related; this is not the place for discussion about Kate and William’s marriage, Kate’s weight (or anyone else’s), speculation on whether or not she is expecting, that she looks ‘tired’ or why, or if she has “had a little work done.” Trial and error over the years have shown that weight debates have a propensity to go off the rails very quickly. Saying “I think the dress is too big on her” or “the suit jacket should have been taken in” is different from “She looks gaunt,” or “Kate’s bones stick out,” or comments of that nature. It’s a fine line, but one we’re sensitive to here. While comments about the cost of a specific garment are welcome (“that doesn’t look like a $900 dress to me”), this isn’t the place for general discussion on the cost of Kate’s wardrobe; it is a topic that often turns into a conversation/debate of a political nature, the role of the monarchy and other issues.  

Of equal importance: maintaining a respectful tone when sharing opinions. Comments referring to the Duchess as a moron, a nitwit, a disgrace or other derogatory terms are simply deleted. That doesn’t translate into sycophancy. It’s the difference between saying “I don’t think the dress is cut right” or “it’s not a flattering look” and saying “She looks like an idiot, “I can’t believe she would wear such a trashy dress,” or “she looks dumpy.” In some cases, it’s a matter of tone; because this is the written word, we need to remember one can’t hear vocal inflections. One other note: the comment section is not the forum for buying or selling Kate-related merchandise.  We have worked hard over the years to create a community here at WKW and will continue efforts to ensure civility is maintained as we evolve.

I live just north of Boston and we are expecting heavy wind and rain/freezing rain all day tomorrow. I hope they get in ok and wish them safe travels. Boston is an amazing city, I hope they enjoy themselves.

Boston is one of my favorite places. I know what the weather can be like, the forecast sounds more than brisk!

I have been an ardent follower from the beginning of this website. I am in awe of your efforts. Quick question - when I launch the site - the newest entry is from the Commonwealth Games in August. All of the September posts are gone. Has something happened or changed on the site? Please advise and thank you again for brightening my day so very often.

Thanks for your comment. We are aware of the issue and are working to resurrect the lost data. We had a major issue during a data transfer that took out everything from August 2 to now. The posts will return and are confident that will happen sooner as opposed to later.

What happened to September??? and October??? The Queen's death and funeral??? You posted so many nice pictures and now they are gone. And the comment dares are all mixed up-not in date order at all. Has anyone commented on this? Are you looking for September?

@admin, Thank you for your response to my questions. I will check daily to see if the missing data has returned. Shame on your computer for eating up all of the missing data and causing such aggravation to your followers and yourself.

Since yesterday, I am having a problem logging on to What Kate Wore. I was able to log on today, but the most recent entry is from the Commonwealth Games.

Hi Susan, I so enjoy What Kate Wore and appreciate all the work that goes into it. With the new "look" of the blog, I can't seem to find where the comment section is for Kate. I do enjoy reading what others think of Kates choices in wardrobe. Could you help me out? Thank you.

Hi, the comments are at the bottom of the post. I am still working on getting the 'comment count' shown above the post by the date back to being a link to the comments section.
