I wouldn't even mind if she just acknowledged the uniqueness of her situation.  Just say, "Before I married Frederik, I was a normal woman holding down a regular job with all of the challenges and balancing acts that came along with it.  But even in that situation, I know how incredibly fortunate I was to be living and working in Australia, a country with a lot more gender equality and freedom than many other places.  And while it may seem ironic that I am here in a role which I have because of the man I married, I want to choose to use my platform to highlight the urgent needs of millions of women around the world who can only dream of experiencing any of the freedoms and opportunities I've had at any stage of my life."  And then step away from the podium and hand the microphone to someone with some experience or real credentials!

Shes like one or two other married ins who need to take a good look at their own lives before becoming a spokesperson for anything.
ITA and I'd like to add that this is also applied in born royals as well. Generally speaking, nobody should lecture anybody about anything but...

Agreed!  That's why I enjoy following royals like Mathilde and Victoria, because they seem to show up to learn and draw attention to a cause/organization/etc but they don't present themselves as experts or the voice or face of a cause.  I also like Marie's focus on anti-food waste!

The dress is so mediocre, the buttons are ugly. But who cares, it's Prada !

I like the dress  Secret But what pin/brooch did she wear? It looks odd with the all the buttons and dots on the dress.

The blue (linen?) suit looks interesting. Would love to see a full picture of it.

Honestly, I quite like this outfit on her. I will admit the buttons are a bit odd, but overall the dress suits her and it looks like something you'd expect a woman her age to wear (and not something like other outfits she worn which are quite over the top.) Overall I think her outfit suits her very well.

Regarding the outfit, I 'd prefer this dress without the buttons in the middle of her chest.
Not it's too much and a bit unflattering in the area. If it had the belted part only, it would have a stronger retro character and it would look more balanced.
