Prince William and Kate arrive at coronation with children
Kate, the Princess of Wales, is on “thin ice” after “upstaging” King Charles III during his Coronation yesterday, a commentator has claimed. The princess, 41, debuted at the event in her full royal regalia, sporting red, blue and white Royal Victorian Order robes. A commentator has said her dazzling appearance meant she “accidentally” usurped her father-in-law on his big day.

Writing for news.com.au, royal writer Daniela Elser claimed that, while the day focused on the King, it “was the Wales’s show”.
She heaped praise on the prince and princess, saying the prince “and most especially the princess” smashed their roles “out of the park”.
But, she said, their impressive performance has put Kate “on some thin ice” with the rest of the Firm.
Ms Elser said the Wales matriarch looked like a “Queen” in her decadent regalia.
She described her entry into Westminster Abbey as a “stunning bit of fashion theatre”, adding that she “looked like an ancient Greek goddess”.
The commentator claimed this was “accidentally usurping Charles from pole public position”.
And she concluded that it was a “risky place to be in” after the King had “waited his whole life to accede to the throne”.
Ms Elser was not the only royal fan to conclude that the Princess of Wales stole the show on Saturday, with Express.co.uk readers feeling she was also among the most iconic attendees.

In a poll earlier today, hundreds of readers ranked her above King Charles.
Earlier today, Express.co.uk asked readers: “Who stole the show at the Coronation?”
Of the 2,280 who replied, most believed Penny Mordaunt was the star of the occasion, as she bagged 449 votes.
The MP and Lord President of the Council became a Coronation icon when she was seen hefting two swords during the ceremony yesterday.
She entered with the golden Sword of State, which she handed to the Archbishop of Canterbury and exchanged for the Jewelled Sword of Offering.
Ms Mordaunt set the internet alight, with several famous figures praising her incredible upper-arm strength.
Alastair Campbell, Tony Blair’s former spin doctor, said he was “in awe” of her feat.
The Princess of Wales was a close second and again out-ranked the King in terms of popularity.
She fetched 404 votes, while the King was the third most popular of the royal procession.
He received just 389 votes from Express readers, with his grandson Prince Louis behind in third on 243 votes.
Of the 10 figures polled, Anne, Princess Royal, was the least popular, receiving just 45 votes.
She was three votes behind the now infamous dancing horse, which was in ninth place on 48.
