Love the look, it's very elegant! Can't wait to see more pictures

Absence is, in my opinion, important to find out whether something in your life is meaningful and important! It may be difficult to endure, but the end result is always revealing.

The combination of black and purple is great and she looks very elegant with that hat.

Mary pulling off another very regal outfit, perfection. The dress is great and I love the combo of black & velvet.

Amazing outfit, but gloves with sleeves like that will always be an issue for me.

Absolutely stunning from head to toe. Elegant and regal as a CP should look. Mary has the most perfect posture I have seen.

This is when Mary is at her best during formal engagements. Love the combo of black and purple. Great to see the two strand pearl chocker that was engagement present.

Wow! She looks very regal and sophisticated. I love the lavender shoes and hat. Great contrast with the black dress.

It never ceases to amaze me how CP Mary manages to get it right on formal occasions. Her ensemble today is as near as perfect as it gets. The addition of soft purple in hat, gloves and shoes to accentuate her slim, 3/4 sleeved, black dress was a master stroke. So often we find black paired with white or red which is essentially harsh but the purple adds a soft warmth to the outfit making it really pleasing to the eye.

Of course, the use of an actual Hat to "finish" the ensemble cannot be under estimated and this style has always looked good on Mary and she carries it off with considerable panache. But then I don't think I have seen her wear a hat that didn't look good on her.

Princess Mary was elegant and appropriate as usual! The outfit was really lovely, the black dress was simple but chic with the accessories. I like the hat.

I like everything except the shape of the hat, a bit masculine, it looks a bit like a fedora to me.

I agree with you all. She looks appropriate and perfect and I love how the lilac accessories add feminity and beauty to her and the look. Plus I love that she is not wearing platform shoes.

Elegant, as always!

Despite all the dificulties you face, learn what really matters in life, and never give up hope.
