It's recycled from 2 or 3 events but the main one was Prince Henrik's 75th - we saw the outing of the Midnight Tiara.

The colour looks very bland.

All in all - not the good choice.

I like the colour of the dress but as others have already pointed out I also think that it is too busy. The lace bolero isn't doing anything for the dress either, it's just making the whole outfit even busier.

I don´t like the dress - the front part looks little like an apron added to the dress.

These kind of very tight hairdo makes her look older than she really is.

My friends, I guess I'm having a different opinion today, I'm looking again at Mary and seeing what I love about her. Severe hair I love, I have grown tired of the wispy wispy.......Plenty of jewels. She is glowing today, and I think the lace bolero is stunning. (as I am a huge fan of a little something like this myself) A++ for Mary today!!

The dress is nice but I don't like the hairstyle. Overall Mary looks good

I do like the hairstyle but this particular close up shows that the parting is somewhat out of line, not straight, looks strange.

I like what Mary is wearing but wish the color were stronger. The thing that I can always expect from Mary is her grooming is flawless. I may not always like her choices in fashion or hair etc. but she's trumps all comers with finishing off her looks. I don't love the hair but it's done; unlike some of my other favorite princesses...Letizia, Maxima, Mary makes the effort and I really appreciate it.

I have never liked Mary's hair this way even on her wedding day.
It is much too severe and makes her look so much older. Even if
she had her hair up and not parted in the middle and pulled so tightly back
it would be a softer look.

I don't really care for the dress, but it is okay. The severe hairstyle does her no favors, though.

I like her hair. I like the cape and the dress but not together. At least she Is not wearing white in her dress. She seems to like to do that a lot at weddings.

I don't mind Mary's dress although I agree she doesn't need the lace bolero or at least a different colored bolero, but she could have gone without. I'm not a fan of her hairstyle, but she doesn't wear it this way often and it's very neat and elegant.

Does she? I only recall seeing her wear a white (be it the lower half) gown to a wedding some 6 years ago, and which was first worn during the Crown Princely couples official visit to Japan.

Before and since then, we've seen her in salmon, iced blue, soft sage and nude.

The Crown Princess wore a white evening gown to a pre wedding reception in Sweden, but that hardly qualifies as the wedding.

Not looking good.. the hair looks strange this way and the bottom part of the dress shows a bit too much (is it too tight, maybe?).

I don't like this dress at all.It's unflattering , very hard to wear,and need someone slim and tall ex:Angelina Jolie.It was Ok on Mary previously when she was slimer But,I quite like the lace bolero as it looks very nice in the back view.

She also wore a black and white dress to a wedding. The dress was first seen in Iceland. She seems to prefer softer colors for weddings for some reason. I would like to see her in some darker colors, maybe purple.

That dress isn't white

I agree that Mary tends to wear more muted colours to weddings though I prefer that to a robust colour myself. I wouldn't mind seeing her in a dusty lavender or rose, actually.

The back view is very, very unflattering - Mary outfit standards have clearly dropped since the twins were born.
