Very formal for a Hunting event, but pretty, none the less. Princess Mary looks great in these photos.

Too dark for my taste, but appropriate for hunting in November. The coat has a good shape IMO, I like her bag.

I like a lot the whole outfit: coat, boots, scarf and gloves. It would be too dark for a different event, but I think that it´s perfect for hunting.

I wouldn't want to comment on her style while in uniform. She is wearing a uniform, what there to comment on. Also, the comment about women not looking good in a uniform and Mary looking better didn't sit too well with me.

How can you compare a princess who visits the troops for a day and gets incredible protection to women putting their lives on the line every day for their country? I think while your life is in danger, the last thing you would think about would be "Do I look good in this uniform?"

Btw, I understand that Mary is a princess, but wearing diamond duds, expensive sunglasses and I am sure an equally expensive scarf is in poor taste while visiting the troops fighting in Afghanistan. I think a sober look in terms of makeup and accessories would have been more appropriate.

I sort of agree with you pdas1201 about the diamonds etc. is it a hard call that sort of thing I don't know but I guess I have to say she went and that is probably more important than anything else.... though don't misunderstand maybe army issue sunnies and no earrings would have been better BUT I have to say Mary seems to me a CP who IS more concerned with her causes than anything else you raise a good point.

Well the Danish soldiers that CP Mary visited did not have a problem with how she was dressed judging by the many, many photos which were taken of the Crown Princess by the soldiers. The Danish soldiers was visited by their future Queen who also happens to be in the military...and she looked the part!
Just to give an example in history, wasn't it Queen Elizabeth of Great Britain who during World War II dressed in her finest when she visited the bombed areas of London and the people who lived there?
Far more important than what CP Mary wore was the fact that she went to Afghanistan in the first place. It was not expected of her to go and she did not need to go...but she went anyway. CP Mary really did her country proud with this visit!

I didn't say anything about the visit itself. I am glad she went to Afghanistan, when she clearly didn't have to. She showed the troops that DRF cares and values them. But, at the same time, I am only pointing out that the above could have been done dressed a little soberly. I saw closeup pics of her makeup and she's wearing an eyeliner and everything.

Btw, Queen Elizabeth was the Queen of United Kingdom when she went to visit the bombed areas of LONDON. She went to visit the areas of her own country as "Queen," to show them that their RF was not going to abandon them and that they would stay in the palace, despite the advice of the cabinet. With Mary, she went to visit a war torn country where active fighting is going on at present. That IMO is akin to visiting other third world countries ravaged either by war, crime and/or poverty, such as Uganda, Malawi, etc. So, there is a difference there.

Again, please read the complete comments and not just bits and pieces. Because, I didn't mention anywhere that she didn't do good by going to Afghanistan. I think it was truly wonderful idea on the DRF's part.

My husband was military for 25+ years and believe me military women wear make-up and earrings. Even when they are out hiking they will wear make-up if they get up early enough to put it on. The fact that Mary went at all is the only thing that should matter. If she would have gone without make-up there would have been...well she does not even care enough to look nice for the troops. She cannot win. I think the gesture of going to see the front line troops should be the only thing that matters. At least she did something. That is alot more than some of the others do.

Terri Terri and Dee4855, I am in complete agreement with your comments.
Don't understand why wearing a bit of makeup, even eyeliner, her usual studs in her ears and a par of sunglasses can be wrong in the situation. As you say Dee4855, had she arrived with a clean-shrubbed face, others might have taken offence at that - a royal not caring enough to do at least that

I cannot believe that there is even a discussion on makeup, when my friend who is in the services was asked about this her reply " we are in the services not dead of course we wear makeup"
By all accounts the troops were extremely happy that Mary visited which is the most important thing.

I don't quite see why it seems appropriate for you to visit bombed areas at home (London was a war area, active fighting/bombing was going on, some people lost everything, there was hunger, poverty, probably also crime) in full royal gear whereas it seems inproper to visit Danish troops with make-up and sunglasses. Mary did not visit a war torn country, but the Danish soldiers in that country. She was not in Afghanistan as a soldier (and female soldiers also try to look good) but as a representative of the royal house to show the support of the RF.

I saw a difference there thus I mentioned it. But, you or others don't have to agree with it. I am totally fine with that

I have to agree with you since my husband is also in the military and yes women pack makeup when they go on missions. Nothing wrong with her wearing it to see the troops. They probably even appreciated it.

Well this is a fashion thread, so I think Mary hit the fashion mark on her morale boost visit to the troops on behalf of the DRF. To me, she struck a nice balance of royalty and humility. She looked like a princess (hair & make up, jewelry) and dressed with restraint (camo, hat & boots). A fine mixture of both, IMO. May God bless the troops and keep them safe!
