there is something in Princess Mathilde that i can't put my finger into. she just looks attractive most of the times. i keep on picturing mary in that outfit, but i don't think she can pull off Princess Mathilde's aura. another thing is that in most of those pictures, Princess Mathilde is talking,looking, or smiling at someone, --- it is really hardly the case with mary, she often has the celebrity smile looking at the camera syndrome.
I have seen Mathilde once in person, and there is something that turns me off. I can't put my finger on it, but I feel like she is playing a game for a bit. In Breda she really made sure the camera's did their work. I am afraid she acts more holy then she is. And in the engagement period I liked her so much, but quickly after the wedding she wasn't herself anymore
