  1. Both ladies look gorgeous! No quibbles here - it's such a lovely look at their individual styles.

  2. Deep ruby red is a beautiful color for Mary. Love the swingy skirt of the suit.

  3. I really don't get the 'why' of wearing hats indoor. And Mathilde's goes well with the suit but is way too big, she can't see anything under that wide brim.

    1. I think Mathildes hairdo would be ruined without a hat like that. Once she put it on, she must wear it as long as photographers are there.

  4. They both look lovely. Here I like Mary more.

    1. Coralie, I agree 100%. Although Mathilde's outfit is beautiful, it makes her "older".

  5. I don't like either of the hats. Mathilde's is too big and it must be hard for her to see under it and, more importantly, it's hard for people to see her. And it looks silly indoors. I don't know what Mary is wearing - a glorified headband?

  6. Has anyone of you ever complained about HM Queen Elizabeth II wearing hats indoors? Never, I reckon. So, the two ladies did have two appointments that day, one of which not necessarily required a hat (meeting the school-children), but the next appointment did (UN-City Copenhagen). CP Mary, btw, is wearing some kind of cocktail-hat, based on hats that once were hugely in fashion back in the 1950's.

  7. I wasn't complaining, it was a remark, that's all. I guess it does make sense to keep the hat on after the outdoors, but it is still too big.

  8. HM Queen Elizabeth is a law unto herself with her hats, as is Princess Beatrix, and of course, Maxima.
    I have no problem in general with wearing a hat indoors - I do it myself - but not a garden-party type wide-brimmed style. I admit that Maxima does that and it works for her but it somehow looks wrong and doesn't suit Mathilde, nor the dress and jacket she is wearing.
    And now cocktail hats are worn during the day? Oh my! Not a style worth bringing back.

  9. I personally like the retro style all of the ladies bring out on these state visits whether Maxima, Mathilde, Mary or Marie. I think for them its a sign of respect and no question its elegant. If they go too modern a'la Rania or Letizia many complain also. So its no winning here for these ladies ever.

  10. Hats for every lady. Every occasion! Even a bit silly hats are better than no hats at all. At least for royal ladies. Hm, I'd say for non-royals too! :)

    1. There's no accounting for taste. To me Mary seems to wear a big, grey Compeed patch on her head. Mathilde's hat is ugly beyond words and she is way overdressed for a visit to a school.

    2. I agree @ZL! Bring on the hats! Most of only wear them for a birthday pic or a sporting event. Hats elevate! They simply do!

  11. I think Mathilde's outfit is awful, looks so matronly on her. Mary's try for a vintage/retro style worked well, looks good on her!

    1. I want to love it because I am liking this cape trend! I'm too set on the cape trend to do anything less than like it @Iris!

    2. I like capes too M, but in this case i realy do not like the fabric and the colour of the outfit, Mathilde can still wear this in about 25 years when she is an older woman. But of course you are very welcome to like it! ;-) xx

  12. I think there are more photos than when I first looked earlier today. I became a bit obsessed with the hats!
    I now see that Mary has tried a retro look. It's a nice attempt but I think the peplum on the bottom of jacket/bodice is a bit too short and looks more like a frill. But overall quite elegant. I still think the hat is not a good choice - and if a retro look is aimed at then it should have been with a better hairstyle - a chignon or bun, not a ponytail.
    And I agree that Mathilde's outfit is a bit matronly - but maybe it would have looked less so with a more youthful hat.

  13. Again it looks like we are living in another era, you can be regal, elegant and contemporary, but this is not. Mathilde' outfit is just not attractive, the color is horrible and it is way too fussy, I won't even mention the hat. Mary would look great if she removed that ridiculous peplum in the back of the dress, the front and skirt look fantastic, again let's not talk about the hat as not to be unkind.

  14. I don't care for either dress and especially I don't like their hats. They both can do so much better.

  15. I think both ladies look very nice, not their "best" but lovely. I don't really like Mathilde's hat, something smaller perhaps?

  16. Mary looks great!! I personally love the hats!! These ladies get to dress UP and it's fun to see what they wear!!

  17. Mir gefällt das Outfit der Kronprinzessin sehr. Dieser Beerenton harmoniert toll mit den grauen Accessoires. Die Zusammenstellung des Oberteils in Wickeloptik mit Schößchen und der Plisseerock ist modisch und doch dem Anlass entsprechend. Anstatt eines Mantels nimmt Mary ein Tuch um sich zu wärmen und zum 50ties Kopfschmuck trägt sie Pferdeschwanz, das ist modern. Mir gefällt es sehr und man sieht, dass die Damen sich verstehen, das ist schön.
