A longer jacket would have been much more suitable. Emirates are very observant on how western women dress and if asked, very forthcoming on what is respectful of their customs.

I noticed in some of the photos from the meeting with the president of the UAE that Queen Beatrix received what appears to be an impressive diamond and gold necklace.

EDIT: After looking at a WAM photo of the gift presentation, I'm now wondering if the necklace is really the chain for a national order (I don't think their national order has a sash and badge like they do in many European countries).

The gold necklace seen in the pictures is the highest civil decorations given to kings and heads of state. The necklace/decoration is like a sash since sashes aren't given by the UAE.

It was an important meeting of CEO's of the corporate world from both the UAE as well as The Netherlands.The attendance of HM and TRH underlined the importance HM adds to even better trade relations with the UAE.

Later today the party will fly to Dubai by helecopter and will meet Sheik Mohammed al Maktoum and his Jordan Princess,who is a dear old friend of the Dutch RF.

I thought this picture from yesterday absolutely stunning!

There was a tour on a yacht in the Port of Dubai.just as the Royal party was about to leave the yacht it was clear it was low tide,so,so they all got stuck on board for 20 minutes after which HM almost had to climb off the darn thing to get her feet on land again.after she accomplished this manouvre,she gave a yell and raised her arms in victory!...
