While the couple was on hand for a meet-and-greet in their namesake town of Cambridge in New Zealand, a local woman revealed the duchess's emerald green Erdem coat didn't sit too well with Prince George's father.
Bev Hayes told reporters, "I complimented her on her green coat. She said she liked it but Prince William thought it was a bit bright."
Clearly her husband's opinion didn't sway her from wearing the jewel-toned wool overcoat from the fashion house's pre-fall 2013 collection.
Middleton paired the outfit with black suede pumps from Episode and one of her signature (and enviable) blowouts.
