In the stills Mary's outfit seems quite harsh and severe though it's a lot better in motion IMO. It could've been livened up with some different coloured jewellery though.

Crown Princess Mary is, as the first, wearing the new Danish Army mess-uniform for women in all branches of the military.

For those who may be interested in more details about the new mess uniform for women, here is a brief Ministry of Defense video showing some details from how it was designed.
It consists of a long dress, with a blazer.

The white variant is of course for summer or in places with a hot climate, while the dark is for winter.

Does the Crown Princess hold an honorary rank in the Army ?

Yes and no.

She has earned her rank as a lieutenant in the Home Guard. (Which today is comparable to the Territorial Army in Britain.)
However, AFAIK, she has rarely, if ever, actually served as a guardsman. She has taken part in exercises but that is more in order to create PR for the Home Guard or to inform herself about the work the Home Guard is doing today.

As such Mary is a de facto honorary lieutenant in the Home Guard.
And being a lieutenant, this is the highest rank she can hold without being a regular career officer of the line.
Because there is no such thing as an honorary rank in the Danish military, so I think it's doubtful Mary, when she becomes queen, will become an honorary colonel or even general in the Home Guard.

(As a Crown Princess, she formally outranks everybody else anyway, apart from Frederik and QMII.)

Looking elegent in the proper uniform mess

Admit I was a bit worried she was wearing a 'theme' at first as some royal women do. But happy to know its actually a proper uniform on her.

I like the top part, the straight up and down of the trousers looks too rectangular to me.

I notice she is wearing the Monpesat diamond brooch a gift from her Father-in-law. Not a sartorial choice I would have chosen.

I don't get what's wrong about Mary's outfit as I think she looks gorgeous and I love her skirt in particular.

I also love the skirt and the individual pieces, but there are too many patterns, colours and fabrics going on for one outfit.

Mary looks perfect and dignified for a Memorial concert in a church.
