Mary's undershirt showing is not too flattering. Wonder why she always like tight stuff, the blouse could have been made longer. Who is her Wardrobe consultant?

Actually she is wearing the outfit perfectly.

Mary is most likely wearing Maternity trousers which have a stretch panel at the front, therefore she needs her top to come down and cover that.

You can have tight, cheap, slutty type clothes but Mary's are body hugging in a beautiful why.

Nothing to my mind is too tight, infact I think she is doing pregnancy clothes beautifully in a feminine way. She might be a Princess but she is a woman first and she should show her body off in a decent way.

Smocks and oversized dresses with Bows belong in the past and should stay there!

Well said! She need to show that just because she's expecting, she does not need to resort to the old fashioned look of the 'big tent' dress and blouses or ugly pants or jackets and always flat, dull looking shoes.

Maternity wear has come a long way, thank goodness!!!

I'm glad Mary is able to take full advantage of a fully modern and stylish maternity wardrobe!

Some of those outfits I bet can be used afterwards too!

I agree that the outfit was not the best! I think it is nice to show your belly while you are pregnant, and the outfit is, by far, a very nice one, but I agree with Rosalyn that it was not the best choice. The top should have been longer to cover just enough. I know I will go against many of you, but I really don't like her style. She looks great, but I don't necessarily think that she has the best sense of style, unlike Letizia and perhaps Maxima. Just a personal opinion.:o

I also believe that Mary, unlike many of us, does not need to "reuse" the outfits afterwards. I'm sure she has enough money to buy new maternity clothes over and over again.

Oh no, I think that whilst royals should be able to wear whatever they want, bearing their bellies whilst pregnant is a no go. Which is probably why princesses in the past have worn sack like clothing (okay not sack like, but decidedly maternity dresses which are so ho-hum boring - e.g. what mary wore to the garden show... almost all the princesses before her have worn such dresses... erk!!!). But this time round, the princesses seem to be wearing their non-pregnancy clothes, its just that its altered to make room for their bellies. For example, I loooove the purple dress MM wore to the fashin show, and love Mathilde's outfit when her and the CP brought Elizabeth to school (mary and her both love coats like the one worn on that day).

I think Mary wears long tops precisely because she wants to make sure that her belly doesn't show. I don't think her blouses are maternity blouses as such, hence the need for tops underneath to cover her bump. I bet ya mary will wear the clothes she's worn recently even after she gives birth.

As we all know, everyone has different tastes. I personally think Maxima's the most expressive, the most outwardly cheerful out of all the current CPss, but I can't relate to her style. Its fun and really lively, but sometimes verges on being a tad bit garrish. But that's just me, and Maxima can look really elegant sometimes too (some of her hats are just gooorgeous! and some not so, like that recent red one). Letizias clothes.... see when I think of Letizia, I think of her face and her great eyes, coz her clothes just doens't catch my attention. And when it does it's the sameness of it all that catches my attention. But again, that's just me and we can't all like the same thing.

I don't like her style either . I think Mary's choice of clothes makes her look older . When I see her, I don't see a 33 years- old but rather a 50- years old . But, like Roxsteve said, just my opinion :)

We often think that women with pale skin, darker hair and classical outfit might seem older than they really are. Catherine Zeta-Jones, who like Mary, has porcelain skin, dark straight hair and dresses tastefully and rather in a classic way, always seemed older to me than Gwyneth for example when in reality they are about the same age.

I don't agree with you here . Perhaps Gwyneth, when you see her from far and you see a thin blond woman looks younger but I think that Catherine has something on her face that can make her look girly sometimes (not a critic from me, she is beautiful !)

I don't necessarily think she looks 50, but she tries too hard to look modern and sometimes that backfires. As a princess, she needs to make sure that she looks modern yet elegant and proper for the ocassion. The rest of us can show our belly button and no one would really notice--or care. I do, however, respect your opinion.

Catherine Zeta Jones looks older than she says she is because, as everyone in the industry knows, she lies about her age, she is about 40 years old.
Mary looks younger when she is off duty, I think wearing hats and suits etc can make anyone look older. Sometimes I think she wears too much makeup which can make her look harsh and therefore older.

Mary is like the energizer bunny! She keeps on going and going and going. It's great she can represent Denmark so well, but she's almost eight months pregnant! I know a lot of women who have to go on bedrest for the last month of pregnancy, so Mary must be having a very healthy pregnancy. :)

Have to say I really disagree with you here (that's alright :). Mary's choice of clothes are very modern - perhaps the most modern out of all the princesses. She doesn't go for that tailored suit look all the time (letizia wears modern suits which is fine, but some princesses continue wearing really frumpy 80's looking suits which I think, well, isn't as flattering though they are decidedly "royal-wear" as the Brits, especially the QEII, wear them a lot).

And I don't think she "tries" to be modern either. Its just how she is. She is modern, and most women wear pants to work, and she does too (even when pregnant).

Mary carries her pregnancy with grace and ease. She seems to have a very healthy pregnancy.

She is one of the busiest pregnant princess. She is non-stop working and has managed to carry out a great deal amount of engagements, without having to cancel any of them.

No wonder Mary's beloved husband, Crown Prince Frederik and her mother-in-law QMII are so proud of Mary!

Well done, Mary!
I second that!! :) :p

Everyone seems to be talking about the fact that Mary is working quite hard at this time in her pregnancy. From my own experiences, I think it is really good to keep busy at this stage of your pregnancy, unless you have had a difficult time (and we have not heard that this is the case) or are in the middle of an Australian summer with all its humidity.
Mary seems to be a very focused young woman anyway, with a strong work ethic, and I don't think she would enjoy taking it easy if was is something else she could be doing.
She will probably take more time for herself to prepare for the birth from the end of this month. What a wonderful time in her and Frederik's life this is!

I respect the fact that Mary is so busy late in her pregnancy. She is lucky too have a good pregnancy. Everyone's pregnancy is different.


As far as her clothes, sometimes I feel like the clothes are wearing her and not the other way around. When I see her, I automatically think designer labels. It's a totally fashionista label addict approach to fashion. When I see some of the other princesses, for example, Mathilde of Belgium, they are elegant but the clothes are just an extra to view. I see the princess and her work first. If she happens to be wearing a pretty pink dress with flowers and the same flowers are in her chignon, then fine, it's something extra and nice to look at.


I don't have anything against Mary if this is what she likes, but I do blame the courtiers for allowing her to be seen as a clothes horse Vogue model. It is sending the wrong message if they are wanting her to be taken as a crown princess who takes on serious issues and wants to be seen as such. JMO. :)



Letizia's clothes do not really stand out. She is seen as professional and hard working. There are no Vogue photo shoots and interviews. Her image is, you know me from my journalist days, but you DON'T really know me. There is this subtle mystery around her which I think is an asset to a monarchy. JMO

When I look at Mary, I do not think this at all - far far from it.

I always think "lovely", "innovative", "modern", and I just thank god that she doesn't wear ugly "royal suits" (sometimes only ). She does look lovely and she does wear a lot of Danish designs, especially by Julie Fagerholt or Malene Birger, but if that helps Danish fashion and she looks good at the same time, then all the better! I think its the fact that she's decidedly fashion conscious, as opposed to others who are not as supportive of this area. She's not being coy about her interest in fashion (what a waste that others don't... they could help their fellow countrymen a lot by being upfront about it), or in her support of Danish fashion - she'll meet it head on, and if people want her to put her love for fashion a bit more in the background are going to be sorely disappointed. This is now part of her work and designers in Denmark are grateful for her support.

The Spanish monarchy is vastly different from the Danish monarchy. The Spanish royals rarely give interviews at all, and they are always swimming against the current, not because they are not hardworking, but because there is a strong republican movement in Spain which does not exist in Denmark. Even Queen Margrethe has given interviews to, I think, Billed Bladet and less serious magazines. The Danes have always given interviews, had documentaries made on them etc, which is not the same for the Spanish royals.

I agree to some extent though about the Vogue issue. I don't have anything against Mary doing Vogue - because other royals have done fashion shoots too, but she could've done away with some of the Chanel clothes etc. I don't know if it was mandatory for Vogue to use those clothes though. It is still possible that their budget for the trip to Denmark could've been dependant on the support they got from the fashion labels? etc??? Not sure how this works. Or maybe Mary was more naive then. In any case, she hardly wears anything that is not of Danish design now.

I'm well aware of the Spanish monarchy as I have a degree in Spanish and Spanish history and culture!:)


Even though we differ in our views of Mary, I like hearing your views and opinions. They are well thought out and expressed. Have a good day.


I'm sure Mary has heard feedback about her lack of supporting Danish designers in the past. She is probably making a conscientious effort about being seen in Danish designers now.
