Do the Gulf royals give gifts of jewellery to visiting Dutch royals the same way they do to members of the British royals when they are in the Gulf?

I am surprised. Maxima is usually very well and appropriately dressed but to wear such tight pants and short jacket is not respectful to the host.

It was merely a technical arrival at the Presidents Flight section of AD airport,nothing special except that it was acknowledged they arrived.That's all.They went to the Emirates Palace hotel immediatly after without seeing any of the Rulers family.So no,no offence.

The visit starts today so I don't see why it would be offensive that nobody showed up from the ruling family to meet them.
