Don't ask me, I didn't write etiquette rules (Yes, I know QEII doesn't remove her gloves, but rules never applied to her).

She makes her own! I think after a lifetime of sweaty handshakes keeping her gloves on is probably far preferable and also why she oddly wears dark gloves.

However, Q Mathilde looks lovely, I even love her hat! Creases such as that on her dress are very indicative of relatively straight dresses, warm weather and sitting down. No biggie.

I also noticed that an wondered if it was not pressed properly by the lady in charge of her clothing.
Anyhow, this is a very becoming dress on her, I wonder if the fabric on the bottom part of the dress is linen for it wrinkles all the time as being a natural fabric. The way the lace and bottom meet is such a nice way of putting the 2 fabrics together. I like everything about this outfit for the occasion calls for something somber. She looks very dignified and being the lady that she is a beautiful queen representing her country.

Wonderful dress! She wore it before at the annual concert on the eve of Belgian National Day in July 2015:

Yes this is a very pretty dress and she looks very happy here. I love the cut of the dress and can see this in different colors and fabrics for the future. I love those earrings, diamonds and turquoises perhaps. This is just perfect on her and hope to see it again.

I really don't like the way the bodice doesn't fit. It is the signature style of her favorite designer, unfortunately. The darts in the bust are misplaced, and the sleeves are not set in to give enough room. Also the inverted pleats doe her figure no favors. Do like the print and those colors look very nice on her.
