The princess stepped out on Tuesday with her husband Prince Frederik of Denmark, 54, for two public appearances around the Dutch-Danish business conference in The Hague.
The mother was pictured in a mandarin suit from Australian luxury label Scanlan Theodore.
She reportedly bought the outfit on a recent trip to Melbourne.
However, fans seemed more focused on her shoes.
“I love that Crown Princess Mary put on sneakers for one of her engagements on day 1 of the trip to the Netherlands!” a fan tweeted.
“Comfort, usability first…fashion show second! She looks fantastic!!”
This isn’t the first time the princess has taken a more relaxed approach to royal fashion.
During a 2018 trip, the mother of four stepped out in Rome in an elegant dress paired with unconventional sporty sneakers.
The princess then wore Nike VaporMax Explorer shoes that cost $280.
“Confidential royals! Princess Mary is trading high heels for a pair of simple white sneakers,” one fan tweeted at the time.
“Princess Mary makes causal cool again,” said another.
On Wednesday, the Danish royal continued to show off her causal style when she appeared at the Boss Ladies Project in The Hague on Wednesday.
She paired a navy blue blazer with loose-fitting jeans and sneakers as she smiled at photographers and fans.
At one point during the event, the princess wore a construction hat while posing with other attendees.
“Today is a day we won’t soon forget! We met HRH the Crown Princess,” a statement from Boss Ladies Project said on Instagram.
“29 ambassadors met the Crown Princess to talk about a minority in the sector.
“They were all so brave, cool and supportive as they each entered into a dialogue with the Crown Princess about their own experiences.”
The statement said it was an “honour” that the princess made the visit.
How did Princess Mary and Prince Frederik meet?
The Life of Mary Donaldson – now known as Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark — changed forever the night she met Prince Frederik in a Sydney pub over two decades ago.
The pair met on a night out while the heir to the Danish throne was in town for the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
The chance meeting sparked a fairytale romance, with the Australian “regular” and crown prince getting married in Denmark in 2004 and having four children – Christian (16), Isabella, 15, and twins Vincent and Josephine (11).
In an interview earlier this year, Mary spoke about the challenges of motherhood.
“You know, we have two teenagers in the house and teenage years are very transformative and vulnerable,” she told the Financial times.
“These are the years where you make mistakes, and mistakes are important.
“Hopefully you learn from them and get on the right track. So I hope they continue to have the freedom and space to make those mistakes and get through those years of exploration.
“We hope they grow up to be strong and independent individuals, who will have the courage to follow their ambitions.
“It’s important that they know who they are, take pride in who they are and the family they belong to, and what that family represents.”
