This time the Queen will travel alone. Normally W-A and Maxima only accompany her at state visits outside Europe.

I really hope for some nice new hats of the Queen.
I'm really looking forward to some new pictures.
It's sad that WA and Maxima aren't joining her...

Oh God, the dead bird. She wore that hat at a Prinsjesdag some years ago. I definitely don't like it... :(

The flower bouquets that Queen Beatrix and President Vaira Vike Freiberga got are really beautiful, but if I may say so - neither of the otherwise two fantastic ladies are not exactly dressed in their best. Queen Beatrix wears that quite terrible "bird feathers hat" and the shoulder pads seem to be in place, and the cut of the President's suit doesn't really fit her.

That's a really interesting hat of Beatrix's. She certainly shows some fashion style there. The colour chosen by the Latvian president is really girly, and she probably try to balance the Queen's fashion sense. I agree, they both could do better choice with their outfits.

She loves those feather hats I don't really like it. Too much feathers.
But her outfit looks good :)

I don't like feathery hats, but IMO Queen Beatrix (and Queen Fabiola) can pull them of...but nobody else I believe HM used this one at Prinsjesdag 2004 already. She definately looked better during the second visit.
Good to see that the minister of foreign affairs is sticking to her, so she has some company :) I like the necklaces of the Queen, they are formal enough, but more 'flamboyant' then the traditional pearl necklace.
Also good to see president Vaira Vibeke Freiberga, I realy like her!

Luckily HM lost the feathers somewhere during the day. The other outfits were much better, I especially liked the pinkish one. :)

I've got some pics of the state banquet (picture press europe) and the unbelievable has happened: Beatrix is wearing the tiara of the Sapphire parure! Great!
