I absolutely agree with you, Alexandria. sometimes Mary gives me the impression that she chooses her outfits on a whim, without much planning... hence the "unprofessional" feeling she conveys. It's even more unnerving when she seems to care little about having a different wardrobe for her official engagements and private outings... if I'm not mistaken, she wore this same outfit not long ago during a hunt!

Dirty hair

IMO the photos showing their arrival in Germany, to me it looks like Mary has not washed her hair for a few days and because it looked oily, she thought she better try something different. It looks like the kind of hair a 50 year old woman would have, it has no style especially the thick hair over the front of the face. I don't think she is pretty or attractive, her face is very arrogant.

While I think Mary's look could have definitely been more polished with a shirt tucked in etc. It's not really fair that "she seems to care little about having a different wardrobe for her official engagements and private outings." Many people on these forums tend to complain that Mary is a clothes horse and only buys high-end designers. Many pieces of clothing are very versatile and depend on other parts of your outfit. Besides, many other princesses have recycled outfits from their official and private outings. Personally, I've seen Mary do better and worse. She's a new mother; I don't think she's really fretting whether she's copying an outfit again. (Just my opinion) :)

While agree with poster who said that the updo that she wore on her first engagement in Germany was unflattering and that Mary unpolished in several instances, I don't think that Mary doesn't care. It's not as if she showed up with a dirty face and dirty fingernails.

On a more positive note, I really loved the silver jewelry. It is a welcome change from the usual stones that we see on royal ladies. Not a diamond, emerald or ruby in site, but still beautiful in my opinion.

I think Mary looks very, very good on this trip. Forget about the hairdo and jewellery etc....it´s her happy smile that´s the best outfit/decoration.
And tha´t´s saying a lot; I´m not a regular Mary fan :-)

Hi michi04, welcome to the royal forums! I had exactly the same feeling about Mary, but she's starting to grow on me. And she might as well end up as one of my favourite royals if she can keep up the good work.

Btw, thanks for all the pictures, all! It really was a 'black' week for Mary! (Which is great, because I think she looks fantastic in it and it really suits the time of year and the weather conditions during the trip, which might as well have been the same as over here in Holland... not too good :()

No, I don't think so at all.
I don't see her often on TV while actually being able to understand what is going on.:)
Apart from the wedding and the baptism where she seemed to be - understandably - nervous the only occasions I saw her "in royal action" were the two trips to Germany.
If I compare this trip with the trip to Berlin in 2004 I must say Mary has improved greatly.
In Berlin she looked pretty but a bit like a fashion model. I thought she was quite reserved, did not talk much with the HCA ambassadors or the mayor and was obviously not much at ease (at least in the parts of the visit I could see on TV). Frederik was the charming part of this couple at that time.

In my eyes Mary was much more at ease this time, charming, very friendly, warm and actually quite natural, and smiling happily most of the time. She really gave the impression she enjoyed the visit and meeting the people although - or perhaps because - the circumstances of this visit weren't the best (Mohammed-caricatures, therefore high security; breastfeeding her child between two acts).

I also think that the colours of her dresses (black - dark blue - green/brown) looked much better on TV than on the pictures.
