As a few mentioned that Mary looked frumpy, well can you blame her? Keeping an eye on 2 active little kids and 2 babies is not an easy task especially when out in the garden. She looked good, the only frumpy look I got was when she would bend down or carry one of the babies her dress would lift up a bit giving the messy look but that happens to everyone. Moreover, Mary's dress was such a busy print which not many people can pull off well especially in those light colors.

I don't think she looked frumpy at all - far from it.

I agree too, the Grasten blue embroidered Prada dress was far from frumpy...Frumpy would have been if Mary had worn Queen Margrethe's dress...Frumpy to me is when you wear something that hides or doesn't flatter your figure or is age inappropriate...So while the dress looks great on the Queen, because of her age and height/body, the same dress on Mary would look frumpy because she is a young mum, who is active and healthy and enjoying life...Someone who is good with photoshop should put Mary's head on Margrethe's body (specifically the Grasten shoot) and see how Mary looks then, and that is your definition of frumpy...!

I don't think I've ever seen Mary looking frumpy.

Beautiful dress. She wore it after the pregnancy announcement last year.

She looks fabulous in the white dress. The kids and Fred look good too.

I love the dress. Are her shoes grey or beige? Fred and the kids look great too!

Mary and the children look really nice. Especially Christian in his Greenlandic clothing. But can someone please help Frederick, that tie is too much with the other colors he's wearing. A nice beige of off-white tie would have been better.

I think this is a charming picture - look at the Queen and her hubby - so cute (come to mention it, what are those two up to?). In fact, they are all wearing blue - Mary and the Queen and the little ones - and most of the others - there must have been an instruction to wear blue. Just a very charming picture.

August 12, 2011 - Mary in a short summer dress with ruffles down the half front matched with a belt and flats.
A nice and simple dress, perfect for the event and not over dressed IMO.

It's a lovely casual dress that suits Mary very well. I also love her flats

I dont see Mary as somebody who can pull off flimsy dresses very well (looks better on petite woman type) and in general I'd like to see royal women approaching 40 staying away from dresses well above the knee.

I'm not a fan of above the knee dresses on older women either, sadly Mary still loves brown!! Does nothing for her IMO. On a brighter note, great photo's.
