I have a growing amount of respect for Princess Mary. She continues lending her support to a variety of very worthy causes, some of which seem a little less traditional for royal support (suicide, for example). While I know appearances can be deceiving, it looks like she has found a good balance of her role- remaining very down to earth and casual while still royal. She looks great, and I really appreciate she is mixing and matching her great wardrobe. None of us can afford a new outfit every day, and she's a great model for how to look great (even if her budget is MUCH larger than ours is!)
It's great to see- she seems to have retained a fair amount of her own personality and character while transitioning into the great responsibility that came with her marriage. After a year, she looks comfortable in her new vocation.
