British journalist Andrew Pierce reacted when the Wales family got out of the royal carriage, saying, “And there she is, the Princess of Wales. White shoes, white outfit, fabulous hat. She looks slim, but she's always slim.”

Andrew complimented Kate on her decision to dress in white for the event, stating that she "wants to be seen" on her poignant comeback to the public eye.

"She was wearing white to make sure she's seen. And that was the Queen's maxim, wasn't it? Visibility," he noted.

Stressing that the Royal Family is about visibility, Andrew mentioned that it is “wonderful to see the family together.”
