I think that if Mary feel comfortable in heels, she should wear them. Pregnancies are different for everyone. Some women may prefer flats while others may be perfectly mobile in heels, or shorter heels than they would wear otherwise.

If Mary can still manage to get around her engagements at seven months pregnant in 3-4 inch heels, then good for her! She knows her body best and what she can manage and what she cannot and I'm sure that she wouldn't do anything that would make her fall or in any way harm the baby.

Well said! While I can barely get around in heels normally, and cringe at the thought of trying while pregnant, everyone is different. A friend of mine walks around in very high heels and I asked her one day why she does (this is at uni, mind you). She said it helps with her posture and her balance so she can walk easier. I guess for her it works, so Mary might be the same.

Thanks everyone for the wonderful photos. I have to agree and say that blue suits Mary very well. I love these kinds of bracelets and they're in pink too! :) http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...hmentid=179053 (If anyone has any more info on them, I would really like to know)

May 12, 2005: Princess Mary leaving through the back door from the Marlene Birger Collection show.

BTW, the top she is wearing is designed by Marlene Birger.

A nice find, pdas1201. She looks good there too in black. You can hardly tell she´s pregnant. She certainly glows if I´m allowed to use a tired line. :)

my grandmother is the same way. she is 93 years old, when you think the risk of falling and breaking a hip is high, but she prefers to wear heels as she says it feels better for her back.

Don't know when were these photos taken, but she seems pregnant to me and Face to Face says they're from August 12th (last Friday)...
Anyway, here they are, via ImageShack. Enjoy.

Thanks Elsa!

I think they're from the Marlene Birger fashion show. Marlene Birger also designed the outfit Mary is wearing.

this may sound strange but Mary seems more warm and fuzzy, when she wears Danish fashion and then when she wears "snobby" labels. any thoughts?

Then, you could understand why Mary attended these Danish fashion shows last week.

Cheers
thank you for the information Linda.unless such duties dont need any training or education and only needs a signiture to marry some prince,I wish all poor people could have jobs like her,making so much money from attending fashin shows!this is not just her,but all royals.what a cruel world we live in

well ok, if you want to spend time mad over that (something that you have no control over) then I can think of maybe a billion other things that you might be interested in being upset about too...

just let me know...:p

I want to be stick thin like those models and earn millions for walking up and down the catwalk! And I want to be as pretty as Charlotte Casiraghi and have access to money and be extra chic too!

But in regards to all those commoners marrying princes... there's no argument about that... they do get benefits (as well as added responsibilities) once they marry into royalty. And of course I agree that we live in an unequal world. I mean I'm here wasting time and looking at pictures while a poor child in another part of the world is dying of hunger. I don't need to look at royals and the very rich to see the inequality in the world - the fact that I can do all these things that I can do, whilst another can't, is already a manifestation of inequality.

I think people though find it hard to accept that Mary is a protector of CIFF, and instead criticise her attendance at these fashion fairs. Seriously - what's the difference between supporting the Danish fashion industry and supporting a Danish choir group?? Is it because the former is more enviable (all those clothes and its oh so glamourous!!) whilst the latter is not (relatively speaking of course)??

Mary is not making money by attending these shows.She is the patron of CIFF and Designer's Nest and taking part in these major events are part of her duties.From a recent Danish TV news report, hundreds from all over the world came to participate in this event which 5 years back, no one seem to be interested in. ? Mary effect.

Thank you Jasl for your good point,I didnt mean t be against her,when all her peers are living that way why shouldnt she?this discrimination has been going on for thousands of years.you seemed to be the only one who got what I said.

jasl, it doesn't have to do with that. i think that if mary is protector to a danish fashion fundation, she should practise what she preaches. another poster previously said that it's incoherent to support the danish fashion industry and then use international designers such as hugo boss or prada.
