Mary was wearing her sash as always from left shoulder to right hip and not other way round. And that is the only correct way to wear it

Also the Website of the Danish Royal family only mentions wearing the Order of the Elephant over the left shoulder

It depends on the event that takes place during the state visit. Let's take Sweden and Italy as an example.
If it is an event from the Swedish Royal Family hosts, the guests from Italy (and the hosts) will wear the Swedish order they received, alternatively (when they don't have a Swedish order) they will wear the highest order they have.
On the return event that is hosted by Italy, the Swedish Royal family (and the members of the government) will wear their Italian order, and if they don't have one, they will wear the highest order they have.

Hope that helps

You can find informations about how to wear the sash on most websites of the respective Royal families

Thank you, Sternchen, that certainly clear things up.
There seems to be a general confusion and many different explanations about the sashes and their use in this forum.

It is definetly confusing Sometimes even the employees responsible get confused. When Alexandra was still Princess of Denmark, she wore the Order of the Elephant from the wrong shoulder for the New Years court, and it seems her Lady's maid didn't notice it either. But someone must have told her, as she later changed it to the correct shoulder
And IIRC Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh once wore the wrong sash to a function, seems someone in charge of the sashes confused them and packed the wrong one, which is quiet embarassing

It happened at King Baudouin of Belgium's funeral in 1993; his aide (or however the person in charge) took the sash of the Order of Leopard (an order of Zaire, now Democratic Republic of the Congo) instead of the sash of the Belgian Order of Leopold.
It was definitely embarrasssing, because Congo was a former Belgian colony and there still were tensions between Belgium and Zaire.

How do you wear those things correctly?
Right shoulder left hip
Left shoulder right hip
Different color sashes and their meaning for the color?

Yes it is embrassing to wear the wrong order/sash all together or just wear the order/sash on the wrong shoulder.If you don't get an order/sash
from an head of state or house you would have wear your own which ever is the right order/sash depending on what event your attending.
