In closeups the dress actually looks purple with yellow and light blue.

Here is a close up.

I like the hair but the eye- and eyebrow makeup is too heavy a la Kate Middleton.

I don't like it. Too heavy make up for a summer day event. Flimsy dress (not the best choice for Mary's body type) that looks a bit like a potatoe sack, busy print, the ruffles and the belt…. way too much is going on there. Also, the colours of the dress (purple with yellow and light blue) do not go well with a brown belt. Add to that light grey ballet flats (which look a bit cheap and plastic to me) we have way too many colours there. The entire outfit is just very busy.
I also find it a bit too short for a royal woman close to her 40ties.
All in all not her best outfit.

I don't love the outfit but I don't hate it. It's just..meh, okay but not her best effort. I have no problem with a woman near or in her 40s wearing a shorter skirt as long as she can pull it off. I do agree that royal women (even those under 40) should be a bit more circumspect. Also, I think if she'd worn a slightly higher heel she would have pulled the look off better.

I really like the dress but have to agree it's too short. I like the color of the dress and the flats. Mary looks great with a little more weight on her frame!

The dress reminds me of a shirt pulled together with a belt. I like the colour and pattern, but agree it's too short, and the shoes don't look right with it either.

He just got them as a present from the municipal of Kujalleq. So I think that´s the reason he´s wearing them.

A nice and simple dress, perfect for the event and not over dressed IMO.

I agree with both of you, the casual dress is nice and Mary looks great in it.

I was judging by the dress which is certainly light and summery. Seeing tht I assumed it was a nice summer day.

But if it wasn't, if it was, let's say cloudy, gloomy day, then the make up may work, but the dress will not. The dress is for a summer day but the make up is more the evening one. I don't know how to explain it better, hope you know what I mean.

I get what you mean, but the thing about the "summer" in DK is that it is warm although not sunny, but rainy, so both the dress and the makeup were appropriate for the weather

Now I get it. With that correction (which I had no idea on how the summer weather in Denmark was, I was only commenting on by what I thought it was by the dress) I agree both the dress and the make up are suitable for such a bizzare summer weather you guys have there .

I am, although, standing behind my other comments on a dress, style and colours .

Love both outfits! Mary looks stunning today! The best part of her outfit is her radiant smile, and wonderful laugh!

That´s ok This summer is really strange with all this rain and warm weather. You think you are proper dressed with long jeans, t-shirt and sandals, but that can both be too cold and too warm. It´s really strange

This dress looks like a 'church lady' dress that was cut off and belted. I really hate this look.....

I also really don't like this look. The focal point is on her knees, which are surprisingly thick. Then, the dress, with the light fabric, ruffles and short cut, made even shorter by the weird belt, looks more like a nightgown to me. Especially when worn with the cheap, plastic looking flats.
A very odd look, with the heavy makeup, if the dress had been longer, with a higher heel, would look ok, but not casual.

I do have to agree with many of you. This is not Mary's best look. The dress is all wrong and Frelinghighness, you are quite right in saying that her knees and lower legs look thick. The shoes are just aweful and the dress itself is way too short. Her makeup is a little on the heavy handed side for this type of look.

Not a bad outfit for Christian's first day of school.

This looks lovely and light and fresh, even though it is brown tones. It looks like Mary has had her hair tidied up a bit, looks much better to me.
