Royal Outfit(s) of the Day: March 25

Video: The Countess of Wessex visited a hospital last week, wearing a black and white print Giambattista Valli dress under a fitted black blazer.
That busy royal bee Sophie turned in this lovely appearance last week, in the classic combo of black and white, and I generally appreciate the contrast of a solid on top and a print on bottom to liven it up. That's all fine and dandy. But also last week, Princess Letizia did the same (same-ish) thing...
...and NOPE. Is it because that print kinda looks like diamonds and clubs, like she meant to hit the casino first? It is because these trousers have a drawstring? It's just a pants-y turn on La Wessex's outfit, really, so why isn't it working for me? These are life's great mysteries.*
