She seems a little better than she was. It shows that she is a bit interested again by clothes. A very nice thing IMO, in front of the tragedy she is living everyday, that she could enjoy herself a little again. Horrible situation.

And I first thought she took the sleeve off her wedding gown and incorporated it into the gown! Then I googled her wedding gown and saw that she had small bows on her sleeve, but large ones on her train. If this was a homage to Friso, perhaps she took a large bow off her train and put it on the sleeve.

But then again, perhaps she just wanted to wear her trademark bow on her gown.

There is a debate going in the comments here about the sleeve and it seems most people agree that this bow is not from her wedding dress.

I don't know enough about these things to know for certain. Mabel has worn many, many, many things with bows on them. Maybe she likes bows? Maybe Viktor and Rolf created this dress so it would remind us of her wedding dress and keep Prince Friso close in our memory too?

IMO, the bow is not from her wedding dress. Her wedding dress was covered with tinier bows.... Not a fashion expert.... could be wrong!

She had a lot of large bows on her train, RR, but small ones on her sleeves.

I almost never like anything that she wears, it is always over the top but I find myself really liking that outfit, she finally wears something that is understated and elegant, she looked radiant.

I'm here to talk about the black dress; first I am very happy to see she came to this event. But I don't understand why she had to wear black? I think a dark color that wasnt black would have been more suitable without forgetting what she is going through. It couldn't have been blue because Maxima wore blue; perhaps a deep dark purple, gray or green. On top of that the bow on her arm doesn't even look like it belongs there; not because its a bow but how it's shaped. The bottom of it just looks like lose fabric. If she did have to wear that dress perhaps she could have had a small bow on her lower him in silver perhaps.

It's nice to see Mabel again. I like her outfit and I think she looks quite elegant and sophisticated in it. Her hair also looks nice.

Does Mabel only wear black now?
If she does, it's sad.

I know it's absolutely devastating to lose a spouse and she is probably mourning. But she's such a lovely lady and I hate to see her like this.

Yes. At most events since the death of her spouse, Princess Mabel has worn black, with exception of the festivities around the Investiture of the new King. Even on winter sport she wore a black outfit. Maybe she observes mourning. There was a deep soul-match between the late Prince Friso and Princess Mabel and maybe she still has not finalized it.

At these two events Prince Friso was still alive.

Oh yes, of course, you are right. It was after the terrible accident but the Prince indeed was still alive. Then we can conclude Princess Mabel has only worn black since the Prince's death.



For some reason I like it that royals stick to traditions. When Prince Claus died in 2002, his widow -Queen Beatrix- observed mourning as well. Princess Mabel is doing the same. I agree: it takes a long time indeed.

Pretty, but - and I don't mean to be disrespectful here, is it not like the modern Queen Victoria?
