QM is wearing a court overcoat. In the olden days, the court ladies wore these to court. The colours and embroidery reflected their ranks.
Henrik was obviously wore a Chinese shirt for men.
If you happen to go to Vietnam, ladies, you will be addicted to these áo dài and I think Mary is one of those who are. And BTW, the trend today is slightly shorter than Mary's but it can never be as short as a tunic. The width of the legs of the pants can be different too.
Wow, I didn't understand that they were honoring another culture in their choice of outfits. Thanks for clarifying.

Not too crazy about the dress, but her hair is lovely.

One of my favorite dresses, and it fits her beautifully. I love the 50s look of it.

Agree and she has recycled it lots - good to see her getting the value out of a Prada dress
