Official visit in Saudi Arabia and Qatar, Day 5:

Mary looked beaming beautiful and elegant today during her and Frederik's last day at their official visit in her recycled white coat first time worn 11 years ago in Australia (2005).

Nice outfit but I think its a bit too much to be worn in Qatar. The long coat is too hot for the current climate, the all black looks like a funeral or a very cold winter day and the turtleneck, I don't get. The black pants matched with a lovely spring top, matched with belt would've been perfect IMO, a coat or jacket added later when meeting with the Emir.

I understand that Mary maybe wanted to conservative in the Qatar, but Qatar is an open country, they are flexible in how you dress, therefore Mary could've taken it slightly easier or added color.

I thought Mary looked amazing with her beaming smile and black and white outfit. Love her earrings! I agree that maybe the turtleneck was a bit much but if she could stand the heat than who are we to say? :)

Her outfits look confusing to me as if she is trying to promote Danish fashion in Saudi which, now, we know doesn't translate. Why didn't she have some amazing fusion salwaar kameez outfits made for her which consist of a tunic and trousers? She would have looked amazing.

I don't think the Saudi's wear Salwaar Kameez's? (though I'm obviously not Saudi) More Abaya's and the like for women, though Western women just need to dress modestly, which Mary has done.

There's nothing wrong with her promoting Danish fashion in Saudi Arabia, I think we see that there are many pieces which can work well in Saudi Arabia. I think the fashion can translate very well, though I'm not fond of the way Mary wore some of the pieces, but that's a personal preference.

I think what looks awkward with almost every outfit is that it looks like she stuck pants under a dress. The best outfits are the beige one and the black / white one. They look elegant. I think Diana's outfits to the middle east is because she took the general outline of Arabic outfits but used English fabrics. They looked both elegant and comfortable.

I must agree , her looks is wire, all cover to the neckline , only her face and hair we could see, try to hide her siluete, I guess is something to do with the way women dress there!
Althought she should to represent who she is a western Princess and she should to dress how she always dress!
They wouldn't do the other way around!

You need to be respectful of others peoples cultures and that's what Mary is trying to do. Saudi Arabia is quite strict, less so for foreigners, but still. You have to follow the law in other countries, regardless of what the laws are in yours, and this is what Mary was doing. It may not have been the most fashionable thing, but she was being respectful of the Saudi culture while still trying to be Mary.

I must say you nail it! I am sure she had been with a team of people to decide what to dress! Wonder what she really thought about all her experience there! and wonder if she got any jewelry as present

I like the outfit Mary wore on Day 5, it's simple but professional.

Mary's team does not seem to have the fashion sense that Diana's team did. I agree that when visiting a location you should be respectful of local custom.

I disagree. Why have a whole wardrobe made for the sake of visiting the Middle East when she is not going to be using them that often, especially since the Danish royals don't visit the Middle East that much. Queen Margrethe has made only 1 state visit and CP Frederik has visited the region on his own in the past few years.
I bet if CP Mary had a whole new wardrobe made for this 5 day trip, there would be those criticizing her for wasting money!!

I think she did a good job considering the Muslim restrictions and she was able to re-use and recycle existing pieces from her wardrobe. The new clothes that she has worn such as the black and white coat, 2 fantastic floral skirts and 2 blouses are all separates which can be re-used and recycled in the future.

I sometimes think that dressing like the people in that country dress can look like a fancy dress outfit. She did a great job of dressing respectful but still dressing like Mary

Oh Mary!

"Daily Mail Australia", "Woman's Day" and "Se Og Hoer" are all saying you've spent over $200,000 on your handbags.

In just the last five years.

Oh, and they're saying you're known as the thrifty Princess - even though you've brought fifty-nine of the things in just those last five years.

At least I haven't seen photos of you with that one with the death-skull clasp lately.


(This whole handbag thing is really getting silly. People are making a living out of businesses that hire them out for special events.

That's what the working poor used to do - all the ladies would pool their money and buy one good hat to share.)

I have to agree a whole new wardrobe would have been wrong and she would have appeared to be wasting money. She had to cover up and did so while still looking like Mary.
