There are not a massive number of flowers - two or three bouquets a day. If they are longer-lasting flowers, they may be able to go to old people's homes and hospitals, one would expect?

IIRC I once read that the DRF indeed gives them away to old people homes and hospitals

Not necessarily Some compare Mary to themselves and say, that she looks much older than themselves, some compare her to other women in CPH in her age, some compare her to the women Mary is friends with, some only compare her to other royals.
You simply don't know if other members here compare Mary with the same persons you do

I was referring to the posts I quoted in my post # 121. That's how it all started.
I would assume by reading statements that say "I would like to see how many women of her age in this forum can look as good as her!" and "I would like to know how many woman of her age here in this forum can look like her" I can say who the poster was comparing Mary to. Therefore I do not think it's a fair coparision unless the women in this forum of Mary's age have an access to what Mary has.

It's not about other Cps, it's not about the woman of her age here in this forum, it's a thread about Mary and her fashion and style. Probably that's why we are talking about her not about anyone else .

As for Mary being "the best stylist Cp", it's subjective: she may be that to some, but she doesn't have to be that to others. Simple.

the notice I said yesterday about the bluse from Zara of princess Mary, appears now in Myroyal's page, it's possible that they got the notice from me.

Some of us really like to play with words, don't we? It's Mary's thread I guess everybody is aware of that. But since we are talking about her fashion sense and her looks, on which base do you state that she looks OLD for her age, and that she is not elegant if you refuse to compare her with anyone else? It would be very interesting to know, rather than simply say oh she just looks OLD.

BTW I really like her blouse. I'm heading for some Zara shopping for sure...

If you read my later posts, I think I explained why I don't think it's fair to compare Mary to other women in this forum. I also explained how I see elegance and age without conparing.

I am quite sure it is the ZARA blouse. The pocket of Princess Mary's blouse is exactly at the same position and the same style. Maybe she'll recycle the blouse, so we can see it better.

There is a ZARA shop in Copenhagen.

You are right, Mary usually wears "bigger" brands, but perhaps she is expanding her horizons, and seeing that is well recieved that a Princess wears brands that are accesible to most people. It also states that she is being savy with the money, Zara often carries trends and you don't have to spend thaaaat much money in a piece that will look outdated in a year (although I don't think is the case of this blouse). Letizia often wears Zara and Mango (despite the horror that her wardrobe is) and it is well welcomed in Spain. Kate (not yet a princess) she wears top shop and her clothes become super popular and ran out of stock.

I'm glad to see Mary in Zara, I hope we see more pieces from stores of that gauge cause she has a good style

There is nothing wrong with royalty wearing Zara, it only depends on chosing the right pieces. They do have nice quality, good looking and elegant stuff but the majority is cheap and low quality for teens/twens who are short of money.
