It seems to me that the younger generation of individuals who have married into their roles are often [with notable exceptions] unable or unwilling to subsume their personal views [or prejudices] on some areas of their role, in favour of the behaviour/dress expected of them as representatives of the Royal House to which they belong ?
Perhaps the casual attire of the Princes of the Asturias at Military functions, or the Princess of Monaco's reluctance to wear jewellry illustrate this nascent independence of thought ?

Yes, a nice pretty look for another occasion. Not this one.

I'm not so sure it isn't intentional. She may not be into the military, but you'd think with her husband standing next to her in his uniform she'd put a little more effort into it.

It really must have a Special reason for her not "honoring" Military duties. Yes, she joined, but with the most casual Outfits, she is able to find in her wardrobe. Must be a reason for that. On the other Hand, her Father-in-Law may tell her, how important it may become having the Army behind you in "Special circumstances" .

Being into something is not an excuse I would accept. She is married to the crown prince and aid the future queen. There will be a lot of things she won't be into but will have to attend and dress for it. She should know why now that standing next to a person in a full military attire, she should look very professional and equally the same IMO. Its like saying Letizia is in an evening gown and a tiara and Felipe is ready to go shopping in casual outfit. It doesn't work.

If she wants to protest against the classical women's wear (= skirt suit) she should at least wear a classy pant suit and not a casual/cheap combo.

Another case of rebellion against classical women's wear was the 2010 National Day, where Letizia showed up in blouse & ugly pants. The next years she was back in classical skirt suits, I guess her MIL said a word or two.
