I just was looking at your avatar Dazzling, and after a 2nd look I must say I like the purple coat, and white and red dress combo Mary wore on the recent Danish tour/royal cruise. Not as much as when she combined the coat with a black dress, mind you, and I still don't like the dress by itself.
This outfit still was not my favorite of the tour, but she still looks nice!

That scarf is indeed identical to the green top Mary wore on her last day in Africa. Thanks for sharing.

Good on you for spotting this...So my theory of it being a locally made gift goes out the window...Danish made especially for Mary all the way!!

Mary in a purple coat, hat, gloves with a nude lace dress underneath & nude shoes.
Each piece is stunning, especially the coat & the dress.
I am not sure the combo looks right, especially when looking at the weather during the event, the lace dress is clearly evening wear and I would have chosen a simple dress/skirt/top/turtleneck to wear under the coat.

At a first glance one is left wondering yet each individual piece is indeed lovely. However, because it is Mary and because she gets away with being slightly daring, I do think the combo works and brings together a sophisticated look. I do love her brooch and hat. So very elegant. Interesting and very different shades to bring together as well.

The coat looks black along with the purse. Discombolutated to me, I too love all these pieces, but this looks "hurried" Mary pulls this off because of her perfect grooming as always!

The coat has always appeared black to me.

This isn't the first time Mary has worn this ensemble (I believe last year sometime), be it with the same hat, but in black, and her fawn gloves. She wore the same brooch which compliments the outfit quite well. A lovely statement piece.

I love this look. It romances the mind. It's all very indicative of a 17th century Nordic noble woman having just returned from an early morning ride. The hat and open knee length day coat provide formality and structure. The cream lace and black pearls are feminine and delicate. The lace being especially sumptuous and elegant.

She looks wonderful.

Mary is amazing! So modern and fresh, yet she can do the occasional historic reference, and do it with elegance and taste! Glad she is back in circulation!

I'm not sure how I feel about this outfit. Like you say Duke of Marmalade each seperate piece is just lovely but together I don't know, perhaps it'll grow on me like Victoria's wedding dress did.

I think you are right about the dress. It's beautiful, but maybe a little too sheer for this event and weather. Her coat, hat and gloves are absolutely gorgeous! Very nice color on Mary.

I love the coat, the hat and the dress - but not the turtle neck type dress with that coat.

I really love the coat and brooch. The shade of the hat seems to clash with everything, in my opinion. The only part of the dress that I'm not feeling is the turtleneck. I think a neckline that is a little lower would have looked better.

You are right about that - Mary has worn a similar combination before in April 2010.

** April 2010 **

The black hat makes the whole outfit look better.

The dress is gorgeous, but it looks too much with that coat and for that event. I dont like the combo at all.
And I hate the colour combination. As Daria_S said, the look was so different with the black hat. Purple-black-beige combination look ridiculous to me.

Mary today was really elegant. I like dress & coat but I prefer them worn with the accessories that Mary has used on April 2010.
