While I absolutely love Victoria's regal style in clothing, the hairclips are ridiculous, look good on little girls but not on a grown woman. Not only not age appropriate but also cheap looking, ruining the whole look.
There must be something more stylish to find when doing a bun etc.

She is indeed and this is what ruins the fit of the dress! It is very nice from the front but the back... No. It just looks silly and the pony tail with the ridiculous shoe laces looks even worse. A big miss this time for the lovely newlywed...

Is she mourning someone? I don't understand the black head to toe.
Lovely jacket and lovely skirt but not together.

The royal ladies wear always black or grey at the opening of the parliament, Queen Silvia has also a black outfit according to this photo:

Queen Silvia wore a red dress at the Opening of Parliament in 1976, but then she introduced black as dress code at the event - perhaps, to refer back to earlier times using COURT DRESS for the opening of the Riksdag. The court dress is black and white (here you can see Victorias grandmother Sibylla: Sibylla 252bcourt dress image by cfarnon on Photobucket) ... but it is also a marker from the queen (and CP ) that it is not the royals who are in focus this day, but the Parliamentary members (who also are more colorful dressed, for example in costume)

Why not? It's an elegant, smart, nice outfit. Why wouldn't it be appropriate for an opening of the Parliament?

The skirt doesnt look good together with the jacket due to very different fabric.

Many top / bottom combinations are of different fabrics. Combining different fabrics doesn't meant something doesn't look good.

Unfortunately, in this instance, it does make a difference. The different fabrics just do not look good together. The color is off, as well.

Yes, I understand that, Sternchen, and I thank you for pointing that out. It still doesn't look smart or chic, imho.

Victoria looks so elegant! She really looks like Silvia in a lot of these pictures.

Is this the same jacket that she wore in a coral color in Paris?

Almost the same, except for the double rows of buttons on the black jacket.
The black tiered skirt is exactly the same though, so are the shoes I think:
