No, Mary is wearing the orders exactly as protocol says she should wear them.
Danish orders on one side, foreign order on the other.
It does look a little bit funny but she can't help it.
I personally think that wearing orders on an evening dress always looks funny
no matter how you wear them.:)
Despite the orders and the colour of the dress Mary does display understated elegance in my eyes.
Not at all looking like a Christmas tree. (That was Letizia at the state visit of President Putin.:) )
I like Mary's dress much better now than when she wore it the first time with the ruby parure and the blue sash.
She looked overloaded at that time and
the colour of the rubies - a little bit into the pink - did not go well with the colour of the dress.
Also I did not like that particular shade of blue (sash) on that particular shade of red (dress).
I think all of Mary's outfits during this state visit were great, elegant and modern at the same time.
Alexandra's dress at the gala banquet was nice, nothing special but showing her really lovely figure and beautiful arms.
I did not like her shiny outfit yesterday, the shoes were totally wrong and the make-up simply horrible.
And I think her usual glow was missing at both events.
The queen: I think that is one of her best gala dresses.
Always loved it and she seems to love it too.
And she looked great in red yesterday.
