Royal Outfit of the Day: January 14

Queen Mathilde accompanied King Philippe to host a New Year's reception last week. Her repeated gray/blue Natan dress is a shape she knows well: magenta to visit the Netherlands, and cream for Philippe's swearing in ceremony.
So, what do we think: Mathilde's chosen her permanent timeless queenly silhouette, or she's just fallen temporarily in love with this dress type? (And if she's going to pick a trademark shape...should this be it? It's certainly not a bad option, I'd say.) We'll be seeing plenty of the newest European sovereigns out and about as they start making first visits to other countries this year, so we shall see.
