Joris on the BRMB provided a link to some pictures of the carriage ride. Martine van Loon is wearing a hat worthy of HM herself :

Mrs. Martine van Loon-Labouchere, Grand Mistress of the Queen, has her 'own' museum, dedicated to the van Loon family at the Keizersgracht in Amsterdam. At the moment there is an exhibition about various ladies that married into the van Loon family.

Mrs. van Loon-Labouchere comments about it here:



The video is also shown at the exhibition, and many people had to smile about the posh accent of Mrs. van Loon (when I was there anyway). She seems a wonderful woman with a good sense of humor.

The court marshall arranges the dinners, guestrooms etc etc. A bit like the manager of a hotel.

Yesterday there was the annual carriage ride through Amsterdam with ambassadors and such. As each year Martine van Loon-Labouchere was in the first carriage.

Among other things, the group (around 50 people) went to the cigar shop 'Hajenius', on the Rokin. After that they went to Cafe Hoppe, to Museum Huize van Loon, on the Keizersgracht, and finally to some art galeries in the Nieuwe Spiegelstraat.

The thing was sponsered by the Stan Huygens Journaal and Lucas Bols B.V. The carriages were borrowed from people who bought them as a hobby, though the van loon Museum is trying to buy a carriage, since they bought the carriage house back a few years ago. I suspect the budget was tight, as no diner was included and by the time it was over most people seemed rather hungry.

Martine van Loon-Labouchere has not been accompanying HM on the state visits to Oman and the UAE. She stayed at home due to health reasons. This was already announced in December btw.

Queen Máxima has added a new lady in waiting to the court: Pien van Karnebeek-Thijssen. She is married to Jhr. Jan Derck van Karnebeek (untitled nobility), who is a nephew of Ietje van Karnebeek- van Lede, the longest serving lady in waiting (since 1979).

Jan Derck van Karnebeek is chief sales manager of Heineken. He and his wife and four children (Herman, Philine, Alexine and Juliëtte) lived abroad for several years due to his work.

he king has hired three new advisors. Two of the names have been released: Pien Zaaijer, who already was an advisor of the couple when they were still the heirs. The other one is Olger van Dijk, who used to work at the ministery of interior affairs where he was the personal assistant of minister Liesbeth Spies.

It is a full time job and they will advise the court on matters like the economy, business, culture, sports and social cohesion. The three will only share the different agendas when the third advisor has been officialy instated. The new advisory board will exist next to the other advisors of the couple: the chairmen of the first and second chamber, the vice president of the Counsil of State and their general secretary Jaap Leeuwenburg.

The queen has another lady-in-waiting: Annemijn Crince le Roy - van Munster van Heuven
Koning Willem-Alexander heeft nieuwe hofdame - Inhuldiging Willem-Alexander - PAROOL

Mrs. Crince le Roy worked as a physiotherapist in the navy for a few years and is involved in the Erasmus foundation and the Schoonoord foundation in Rotterdam. Until recently she was a supervisor of the Rotterdam Noordsingel prison.

She comes from a patrician family and married into a patrician family with roots in the former Dutch East Indies.

Wikipedia has an explanation:
Patrician (post-Roman Europe) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
The Netherlands also has a patriciate. It consists of extremely old and or well known Dutch families. These are registered in Nederland's Patriciaat, colloquially called The Blue Book. A listing can be found here. To be eligible for entry, families must have played an active and important role in Dutch society, fulfilling high positions in the government, in prestigious commissions and in other prominent public posts for over six generations or 150 years.
The longer a family has been listed in the Blue Book, the higher its esteem. The earliest entries are often families seen as co-equal to the high nobility (barons and counts), because they are the younger branches of the same family or have continuously married members of the Dutch nobility over a long period of time.
There are "regentenfamilies", whose forefathers were active in the administration of town councils, counties or the country itself during the Dutch Republic. Some of these families declined ennoblement because they did not keep a title in such high regard. At the end of the 19th century, they still proudly called themselves "patriciers". Other families belong to the patriciate because they are held in the same regard and respect as the nobility but for certain reasons never were ennobled. Even within the same important families there can be branches with and without noble titles.
The noble position of the lowest rank of the Dutch nobility is jonkheer, or untitled nobility. It could be seen as co-equal to the average non-noble patrician family; the lower nobility in the Netherlands is becoming more common, less noble, and is taking the form of the bourgeois upper middle-class instead of the upper-class.

The king and queen have a new personal assistent: Eveline van der Bent (30). She has been working for the court since 2006. I believe she was a nanny of the three princesses during the Olympics in London at least.
