The royal family looks very Saturday-casual. I have no idea what the dresscode is. Suit-and-tie? Black tie? I assume the royals will change in their suites in the palace.

Indeed, no foreign royals, of her family only her sons, daughters in law, grandchildren and sister P.Margriet and her husband Pieter van Vollenhoven (not her other sisters, nieces or nephews) and a few personal friends of P.Beatrix.

All children of Margriet and Pieter arrived with their wives! Prince Carlos and princess Annemarie were also present, so at least five nephews and their wives.

Mabel's sister Nicoline (with her daughter) also attends. Mabel's friend Willemijn Verloop was also seen arriving.

Of course Laurentien's parents were at the palace as well. They were already friends of the now princess before their children married.

I am mainly surprised that Margarita and Tjalling haven't been spotted. All other family members live (partly, in the case of Irene) abroad, so probably have been told not to bother coming over for this event.

The Van Vollenhovens arrived wearing suits and (cocktail type) dresses (Constantijn and Laurentien as well). So that gives a pretty clear indication of the dresscode.

Great to see all the photos and videos from today - thank you to all those who posted them. Princess Alexia has really blossomed into a very grown up young lady! She looks a lot like Maxima. Nice to see the rest of the family there too.

Beatrix is looking fabulous for 80.

WOW Alexia!!! She looks so pretty and stylist!!! I think her hair is getting more red each time I see her, she is no longer blonde. I can't believe she's 12! Looks 15 years old! Can't believe she was born in the same year as Princess Leonor. Growth is a very outstanding thing and works differently for every woman.

I absolutely love Amalia's hair, so beautiful! Interesting that her eyebrows are more darker now.

I saw this picture right now and I was absolutely shocked!

Can you believe how tall is Princess Ariane? Her cousins Leonore and Zaria were born in 2006 and are a year older than Ariane and look how tall she is compared to both of them even though she is one year younger! And she is almost as tall as Claus-Casimir and he is 3 years older than her, I'm shocked!
The other were pretty normal, Alexia and her cousin Luana were born in the same year 2005 and have similar height. Amalia is the same height as her cousin Eloise but Eloise is in heels and Amalia is one year younger so I think she will be taller than her cousin.
But Ariane, oh my! I have no words!

The Dutch are in general the tallest people in the world. And the parents of the Princesses are tall people. It is often thought the Dutch diet (lots of dairy) and high general welfare contributed to this. When you go to Dutch secondary schools to see 14-18 years old you will feel dwarfed by the tall adolescents surrounding you.

Girls tend to blossom into young ladies, sooner and sooner. But with boys we see they tend to remain boys for longer. A 13 years old girl like Amalia can look like a blossomed lady while a 13 years old boy really often remains a boy indeed. You can see that with Clausimir, really still a kid, with all these ladies around him.

No I saw Claus-Casimir flashing ;-) It was not a selfie but a picture.
He stepped out of the car and was wowed by the crowds outside and he made a selfie of the crowds waving, clapping and yelling to them.

Nice pictures of them leaving today. Is there a full view of Princess Alexia? I can only see pictures of her behind her sister.

No it wasn't a casual affair. Some members of the family arrived earlier in the day and changed their clothes at the palace.
