Here is an old photo with the same green suit in 2006:

Thank you for posting this. Now there, you can clearly see the detail of Mary's shoes because of the lighter hosiery. However, I think in this case, it would have looked better with slightly darker tights.

Definitely loving the suit and especially the bag!

Lol rubies, about Prada crochet handbag! These expensive bags are "gifts" to high profile women, very often to serve as endorsements. A young woman I knew worked for an equally high priced merchant and spent her days delivering "gifts" to high profile women. Is the DRF allowed to accept such gifts?
How do you know that this is a gift?

I like the green suit but not with black.

I said they are very often gifts to high profile women. I'm sorry my grammar wasn't correct and gave the wrong impression.

Visits to Herman Van Rompuy

Hope I did this right. Here is a link to a video of the CP couple meeting officials. Mary's green suit really looks way too tight,IMO, especially the rear view.

I like the green suit, but it does look a bit tight. In the picture, it's so wrinkled from sitting etc., that's a shame.

Yes you did
I like this colour on her, very pretty. Only the jacket looks tight from the back, not the skirt. I think the bag may have been a christmas present and its out for its showing off. I also never noticed how much she plays with her hair. A nervous habit? or just a habit? Maybe it is time for a cut, as much as I think her hair is gorgeous.

I think the black turtleneck sweater made the jacket just a little snug. After seeing the suit without the under jumper, I can only say I prefer it without but I also think it would have looked better with "Barely Black" hose rather than nude and the same goes for this time. The hose are way too dark.

Not liking Mary's hair these days too and I hate the touching (what all CPs with long hair do, Kate, Letizia etc). They should all either wear updos in public or cut it, the playing looks ridiculous!

I'd love to see it if you can find it. Was she in London?

I agree. The jade green suit with the black contrast is indeed a very elegant look, although the black hose does look rather "heavy". However the crocodile skin bag is just too much of a controversial statement and quite frankly not suitable for a Princess.

You are absolutely correct! This bag was first seen in November 2008 during the celebrations for Prince Charles' 60th birthday! Mary was visiting the home of Crown Prince Pavlos and his wife!

It was seen again in November 2009 during the UN Conference in Sweden!

Although I find the green suit a bit conservative, I think it looked good on Mary.
The black coat she wore at the hospital looks very interesting to me.

I love the color of the turtleneck, though the coat I can't quite see.

The green was a lovely color on Mary, but I agree that the suit looked a bit too tight and would have been nicer with hose that were not as dark.
