most likely so! royals have protocol assistants who handle these sorts of 'inconveniences'. if it was a walking tour and was supposed to take long, it's likely she was advised in order to wear appropriate gear.
The Humane Society of the United States is the nation’s largest and most effective animal protection organization.

She is so lucky. I wish that I had a protocol assistant to guide me through my vacations!

I love the look with the red and then the navy jacket and I am certain Country Road will too.

It looks like a Dianne Von Furstenberg dress!

Thank you for the link, although, IMO they only look contemplative in the last two photos.

Maybe the agencies find that boring and therefore there are less pictures. Looks like somebody learned a lesson or was keen that the CP couple was seen again associated with business and duty after the whole media tormoil in Beijing and Australia. Looks like finally somebody put his or her foot on the breaks of the Mary PR express.
To be fair any visit to Australia is going to focus on her as it is her nation of birth and though the media made a big deal out of several of her clothing items I cant really recall a jaw dropping outfit on her down under. Must admit I dont follow fashion all that much so please feel free to correct me if I am wrong. Also this is a state visit and as such protocol will be followed more I think.
