That seems to be one of her "go to" dresses. It always looks perfect with her pearl wire earrings. Good choice!

Very nice dress, one her best. Lovely cut and colour on Mary, belt is a perfect addition as well as the simple pearl earrings. Great choice.

Now that's a different story. Not a fan of the print, way too much. Also don't like the cut of the dress. While the top part looks nice, the bottom part looks odd and it ages her.
Nice colour combination with the belt and the shoes, but the cardigan does not match at all.
Not the best look by Mary.

I would see it as a blouse and a simple black or dark brown skirt. That would be a great top.

Ok, I like this outfit...simple but effective considering where she has travelled to...a hot, impoverished African country...BUT I have to say I am a bit puzzled and surprised by her ostentatious choice of accesory...namely the HUGE GOLD bag!!! I mean, don't get me wrong, I think Mary is great, but I just think a HUGE GOLD bag is over the top, rubbing people's noses in it...Perhaps I am just reading too much into it but I really think Mary should take it down a notch, tone down the outrageous accessories and think about where she is and what message that could (possibly) be sending to her audience...I know she has to be the perfect balance of aloof yet approachable, as her royal status decrees BUT...leave the HUGE GOLD bags at home...

Huge gold bag? Where?
Isn't that the big beige leather bag she's had for years?

Loved the white dress with slim belt we have seen many times before.

The printed gold dress was fine, except for the droopy belt. Maybe if it had been a sheath it would have worked better.Or as a poster mentioned, just a blouse with the cardi and black trousers. The brown shoes with it looked just clunky and awful.
Agree the big leather bag was not appropriate, I noticed it right away.

Can't open either link, can you re-post? Sorry for the trouble.

I think the gold dress is awful. Plus, it does not look good with the grey cardigan to me.

I like the white dress. The printed dress and the grey cardigan are not my favorite look, and the third look that was posted I cannot access.

It is not like the bag is made of gold flakes. And I bet it was a big hit with the crowd. Bling looks better in sunshine.

Perhaps she needed a big bag for her bottles of water, extra pullover, comfortable shoes, sunglasses, etc.

The gold print dress is not at all complimentary whilst the grey cardigan is just totally wrong here. A smart jacket might have worked better with this look.

Quite a lovely top matched with the right shade of beige.

Very casual. More of a shopping trip outfit than the outfit for an official visit by the Princess. She looks quite OK in the first picture (although I think the dresses worn by the women are their formal dresses), but out of place in the second and in the last one, surrounded by people in suits and formal dresses. I think she was underdressed.

It was an old beige bag that she carried. Please see the site below that shows it. Scroll down to see it. Maybe the lighting made it appear gold.

Not quite, even local women put on their formal dresses. Mary look way too casual, as if she was going shopping or meeting with friends for a day out.

I agree with susan alicia.

I like the casual outfit that that Princess Mary and imo looks suitable with the local women.

I have liked most of what Mary has worn on this trip - a special mention must be made about the garments that have been presented to Mary from the local ladies, love that she has worn them and if there was head scarf that was put on as well, without a worry about hair. Love it.
