I'm not sure about the outfit, I like the fact that it isn't black but the gold jacket doesn't do it for me. Would love to see the dress on its own.

I find that the dress would have been better off without the jacket.

The gold jacket is out of place. I'd love to see the dress without it.

Agree with everybody, the dress is nice but itīs too light for such a heavy jacket. Lovely hairdo, too.

From the one picture I've seen, I just love that jacket! It doesn't look heavy to me.
The skirt - or dress -looks lovely as well. Nice to se light, spring-like colours on her now.

I'm with you on this one. Until I have seen a close-up of the colours, textures and shapes, the jury is out.

Maybe it isnīt just the hair, but the combination with that dramatic make-up, those dark eye shadows and all usually age women, I find them more appropiate for younger people. On the contrary, in Brussels she wore a more simple and bright make-up that lightened up her face and skin, so she looked a lot younger. Plus the hair had a younger style.
I donīt know if I had explained myself at all, anyway itīs just my opinion

Yes, the purse is super-cute, didnīt see it before
Thanks for the pics, ashelen.
she look wonderful as always I like princess Mary very much

I really like what I can see of Mary's dress, but am not too sure about pairing it with the jacket. I don't care for the bunched-up sleeves; they give it added bulk with the bow belt.

I must say that I really like the combination of the jacket and the skirt, its different yet it works lovely IMO. The jacket i snot too goldfish yellow which works with the skirt. Its interesting with a tiara IMO.

Thank you Iceflower, they are terrific shots.

OK. For me I think it's a terrific look. The dress is white. The jacket a softer bronze rather than a harsh gold. and the pearls on the tiara are a triumph. It all works to create the perfect finish. Everything harmonises so well.

The white dress without the soft bronze would tend to wash her out these days (it is still winter isn't it), and the very structured straight lines of the dress are softened by the softer detailing on the jacket, all of which created a beautiful gown that was complimented by the blue of the Elephant Order sash.

The second version of her wedding tiara looked absolutely wonderful with this outfit and hair style. The white of the dress played off the white of her pearl earrings whilst the bronze bought a deep lustre to the screw on pearls on the tiara, all beautifully illustrated.

It is quite a different look for very formal evening ware, however I do find it to be very classical and most elegant. The gold jacket is such a beautiful design and it does work surprisingly well with the formal white gown. Mary does look lovely and so does her dashing Prince.

This has to be one of my favorite tiara looks for Mary.IMO She is so beautiful in warm colors with her peachy skin. Pearls and all jewels are the right amount. Oh she looks so princessy. I love it!

I quite like this outfit. The only thing I don't like about the jacket are the sleeves.

This is a lovely gown and it reminds me of something that Queen Rania has worn.

I agree about the sleeves; I would prefer a different jacket.
But the white dress is lovely.

I am so in love with this. Love the hair and tiara, love the colour combo of the gorgeous gown and jacket, she looks very much the princess here.
