I wonder if this was a last minute substitution in support of Princess Mabel's decision to got to the wedding as the black widow. Of course Mabel's choice is understandable, but then all immediate family members need to show consistency/solidarity and perhaps Princess Laurentien responded with her sombre smock This theory would also explain the King and Queen's attire, matching their daughters' beautiful grey dresses.

Laurentien is received by the Duchess of Cornwall at Clarence House today.

She's wearing a version in black of the Natan dress Maxima wore on the introductory visit to Spain.
I love the edition of the bright patterned and colored shawl/scarf over her shoulder. It takes it dress
in a complete different direction than Maxima's blue version. The black is a lovely background that
doesn't compete with fabric of the shawl.

She looks terrific. I love her, she seems so nice and modest and willing to be in the "background."

A bad Kermit the Frog costume. Either that, or the Count's cape, in which case it looked better on a purple Muppet.

Perhaps you don't recognize the importance of the colour green: it implies tranquillity, content, nature and contemplation. I think the Princess made a wonderful choice for this event to profile the importance of literacy. Your comment (and others also) makes me think of the Disney film Bambi where Thumper the rabbit quotes his mother: 'if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all'.

In other words, we are allowed to praise the fashion choices, but we are not allowed to say if we don't like them?

I think you did not get the idea of those threads. They are not "praise what princesses are wearing" threads, but fashion threads, where we are allowed to express our opinions on fashion choices made by princesses, be it by applauding them or not like them.

As long as we stay civilized, we do not need to like every outfit and we do not need to be quiet of we don't. We are allowed to say we don't like something.

Oh dear...That's just so shiny. The colour itself is lovely and suits her, but that's sadly about it. Sigh...There really is no inbetween w/Laurentian and her fashion choices are there? She either looks incredable or a hot mess. The really sad thing is often, her choices are usually in the hot mess side of things. Such a shame too, as she's always come across to me as a very pretty lady.

It's so puzzling too. I mean, she's got the means for a stylist to call on for help, but either the entire look is waaaaay off or one part of it looks amazing and the other part not so much or...!?! There are times when she does look amazing, but those times seem to be far fewer than the other Princesses out there. I just don't get it.

Are you really asking an Irish person on the importance of green

I'm so sorry, but I totally LOST it when I read this!

Far as the outfit itself goes . . .

ITA with Tiggersk8 that the color is great, and Laurentien wears that hue very well. But yes, I also agree that it's too shiny. I also don't care for the boxy-looking cut of the outfit.

OTOH, it is a WHOLE lot tamer than some things I've seen on her, though, so I suppose there's something to be said for THAT, on the plus side, as well!
