Clothes influenced by a princess' country

I would like see if we can find examples of outfits which are influenced by the princesses countries.

For example:

This dress of Mary's which she wore in London (I found it in this post by micas, if you are interested)

To me, this is definutely a Scandanavian dress, not something that one would see on sale in the Pacific.

And this recent outfit of Letizia's I feel is the same, and I was wondering how many more examples we are able to come up with.

This dress is by Hugo Boss, so it is not Scandinavian or Danish. As it is a Boss creation, I would have thought that it would have been sold in the US and the Pacific as well

Well its certainly possible, but I think that it's more vibrant (for want of a better word) than most of the clothes sold here. I'm not saying that there are no bright colours or patterns etc - just that this style does not seem to me to be something that you could just walk into a shop an buy here.

I'm not sure if I'm expressing myself very well. I'm sorry.

Btw - I really love the dress!

Off hand I can think of a couple that wear clothes very much influenced by their Country:
1. Queen Rania of Jordan
2. Princess Lalla Salma of Morocco
3. Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden
4. Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway
5. the Malaysian and Middle Eastern Countries

I always remember the belt Máxima wore to horse-ride in Mongolia, with a typical pampa pattern. We call it guarda pampa. Very typical from our country, a nice gesture that she wore it during an official engagement.

Another typical piece of garment of our country, worn in the same trip, also pampa patterned (hanging from her shoulder):
