Please note the separate monogrammes, not their joint one. Hm.
Yrma must be hyper aware that this is her Diana on the rails moment. Surely she is processing the fact that even with Diana's massive charisma and international public support, she could not fight the millenial institution of monarchy. Fred will win in the end, not by force of personality or on meritous grounds, but because he is the heir to Gorm the Old, sprung from the marshy loins of Danish kings and born on the right side of the blanket. Yrma would be wise to remain in the good graces of the gray men as long as it takes so that she can at least negotiate an appropriate abode and severance package (highly doubtful she'll fight hard for the children).
Given this gray mood, Madam has chosen a costume from the "Official Visit" armoire and is getting her Jackie Kennedy on again. If Diana isn't an appropriate role model any longer (Mary may still not escape early death given her maternal genetic gift), perhaps a better one is a former First Lady who snagged a rich man and her own island in the process. Better an island in Aussie waters than Greek ones (Mary heard that they're poor now - ew!), but an island nonetheless. Sunny yellow isn't exactly changing Mary's mood for the better, and the dress is just ill fitting. Cap sleeves were never her friend (like Anja isn't either), and the accordion pleat skirt is a haven for emerging middle-aged pot bellies and presque-zizis. Alas, Yrma's pz doesn't seem happy enough to make an appearance yet.
