Maxima looked just so beautiful!
It's sad we didn't see her complete outfit (also Beatrix')...

For some reasons the New Year's Reception, the audiences and the annual Banquet for the Corps Diplomatique are seen as a private matter. You would think that these should be public but formally all Dutch ambassadors represent the Queen of the Netherlands and all foreign ambassadors are envoys to Her Majesty.

Maybe the Queen takes this litterally? Until 1983 it was The King who had the supreme authority in foreign affairs and defence. With the modernization of the Constitution in 1983 this was adapted to the daily reality. Since 1983 'the Government' (= The King and the Ministers) has the supreme authority in foreign affairs and defence.

But traditions have loooong roots and the modernization of the Constitution did not change the King's position. Maybe that is why the Queen still sees ambassadors as personal envoys to her.

One of the very rare pictures from inside the palace, during a reception for an ambassador is this one.

The (bad quality) picture shows:
HM The Queen
HRH Princess Margriet of the Netherlands
Pieter van Vollenhoven
in the Councillors' Chamber of the Royal Palace Amsterdam, January 8th 1992.

The paintings show old family of the Queen and Princess Margriet: Ernst-Casimir Count of Nassau-Dietz, Stadtholder of Friesland and Groningen (1573-1632) and his wife Sophia-Hedwig Countess of Nassau-Dietz born Duchess of Braunschweig-Wolffenbüttel (1592-1642). The Nassau-Dietz branch is the most direct bloodline to the present royal family.

Behind the Queen you see the then minister of Foreign Affairs, Hans van den Broek (the father of Princess Marilène, a daughter-in-law to Princess Margriet). In the door-opening you see Gilbert Monod de Froideville, Master of the Ceremonies.

From our blog:

New Year Reception At the Royal Palace in Amsterdam

After a period of two years Queen Beatrix was finally able to hold the annual new year’s receptions at the Royal Palace on Dam square in Amsterdam again. The previous two years the reception was held at Noordeinde Palace due to the extensive renovation of the palace in Amsterdam. This summer however the renovation of the inside of the palace was completed, though there are still some works done to the exterior of the palace.
Today and tomorrow the queen will receive hundreds of guests. This afternoon is reserved for the Dutch guests, most of whom play an important role in politics and in various sectors of Dutch society, while tomorrow morning the queen will receive members of the Corpse Diplomatique and the various international organisations.

Woohoo! Two days of new year's receptions and we finally have a photo: http://www.ppe-agency.com/500px/Jan2010/PPE10010602.jpg

Máxima in a car with a recycled Natan suit (surprise).

And WA playing with his blackberry:

Margriet:

Since the exterior of the palace is still getting restaured, there are fences around the palace. The royals got out of the car behind the fences, out of sight for onlookers and photographers. What a difference with Denmark and even Belgium! I understand that they don't want gala attire but a few pictures of the reception won't hurt. I don't see why it all has to be so 'closed', we havent seen new pictures of triple A. since the summer for example (compare that of all the time we see Christian, Leonor, Ingrid and even Elisabeth)!

I read that yeserday aid workers from Apeldoorn, Schoorl (Dune fires), Hoek van Holland (party crowd started atacking the police) and the Turkish Airways crash were invited. I think that it is nice to invite people who do the job instead of just all the officials!

The reception for the corps diplomatique at least gives more interesting pictures of the guests, who often are dressed in their country's traditional attire:
