Sometimes women feel like they are in rut with fashion and want shake it up a bit. I think she looks great and a bit quirky for her here but then again she is one who can look regal in potato sack :)

She looks lovely and elegant as usual, I love the hat and hair too but the neckline seems a bit spare to me. A brooch or pearls would have been nice.

She looks nice, but I don't care for the hat; looks like a wok turned sideways.

The dress is nice but it needed something to spice it up, a nice broche or something. The hat is also too plain to make a difference.

I don't like her outfit, especially her hat. This grey hat makes her older and tired. Not her colour.

The whole outfit is a bit plain. While the dress she wore in Normandy was simple but "complete", this one seems like it's missing something. A brooch would have completed the look. I like the dress colour but hat ages her a bit

I hadn't noticed the hat until I looked at it for the second time, and I do agree with you about it looking like a wok. It reminds me a little of a hat Princess Eugenie wore a while ago. Having said that, Mathilde looks elegant and sophisticated (as always), and I love that shade of blue on her.

I was thinking it was missing something. A brooch is a great idea. Other than that, the only thing that I could comment on is she needs some smoother undergarments. The top of the dress especially caught my eye, it looks like there are some weird layers underneath.

Yeah, there is something going on with the top of the dress.

I really like the color and style, but I do agree that it needs a brooch or something to liven it up.

I think this is one of the loveliest outfits I've seen on Mathilde.

Also i think this can be considered a timeless outfit. Something that would have easily been considered fashionable 20 years ago and we won't change our mind about it in a 20 years time. I think it was perfect for such an occasion.
If she only had accessorized it a bit more...

Love the dress, but not the hat. Elegant overall.

The dress per se is fine. The hat, however, is a totally unflattering choice. A usual wide-brimmed hat would have been much better.

The dress needs to be better lined.

The outfit minus the hat is lovely and Her Majesty looks very graceful today.

The outfits of Mathilde and Kate were not celebrated to day.
It was a remembering day and the BBC did at Saint Symphorien Cemetery a very moving Celebration.

^^^ I agree. It was not about how the ladies looked, but a solemn day of remembrance.

Though I think that Mathilda's outfit was perfect for the occasion and looked very smart on her. It's one of her best looks, IMO. I don't mind the wok look. Perhaps the milliner had in mind the soldiers' helmets from WWI when he/she designed it as the hat does vaguely resemble that shape. Or maybe it's just a wok.

The hat is supremely elegant and, if anything, reminiscent of an English field helmet of the time

Snap! That very thought occurred to me after I'd posted my original comment so I edited it.
