"I say" HM where the RH website says so.I presume,with all the micro-finance and water issues/meetings mommy leads the way and Alex and Máxima follow,it is all within their line,or one of them,of interests.

I thought to get in the mood for the statevisit, I post some pictures of the last visit of Beatrix and her late husband in 1986. I hope you enjoy it:

A flowery welcome
http://s180.photobucket.c...w&current=4070117.jpg

And a extraordinary welcome
http://s180.photobucket.c...w&current=4066934.jpg

A thanks for the good work
http://s180.photobucket.c...ew&current=932203.jpg

Just get in contact with the people
http://s180.photobucket.c...w&current=4071936.jpg
http://s180.photobucket.c...w&current=4066932.jpg
http://s180.photobucket.c...w&current=4066933.jpg (This is one of my favourits, because you see these lots of women listening to her. I think it is a moment she is sharing her personal opinions as a woman and mother. She is not the head of state in this moment. Just my two cents worth )
http://s180.photobucket.c...ew&current=889970.jpg
http://s180.photobucket.c...w&current=4070106.jpg (You see that they don`t fear the contact with the people )

When you are in Rome, do it like the Romans
http://s180.photobucket.c...w&current=4071935.jpg
http://s180.photobucket.c...w&current=4071938.jpg

I think they had a great time there. Especially prince Clause was very interested in India and its development.
I`m soory that I can`show you pitures of their really last visit to India. That was at the milennium, when the whole family of Beatrix and Claus travelled to India, with all sisters of Beatrix and all cousins. I think that was a great party But unfortunally it was a private visit. So no pictures

That was the best thing they could do. It is a long flight. Are any of Maxima's girls with her? Ariane maybe?

On Dutch television, in a programme called 'RTL Boulevard' it was said from reliable sources that the mother of Princess Máxima, Maria del Carmen Cerruti is babysitting the three girls at Villa De Eikenhorst during their parents' state visit.

For those, who want to watch Live Coverage from India, I have found Links to India TV Channels which you can watch online and one Link to an India News Channel. There will surely be Live Pictures, when they will arrive tommorow.
The time difference is +5 hours.

Apparently the Royals and their party went by a KLM flight to New Delhi while the government airplane KBX, went there too, but empty. The reason is probably that the KBX would have to stop once or twice to refuel while KLM´s Boeing 747 doesn´t.

Then they visited the place where Mahatma Ghandhi was burned
http://www.anp-photo.com/...Picture=6487887&pos=5 (It is funny to see how "tall" Beatrix is in India, even barfoot. She is just arround 1,64m / 5`5``. I think she will enjoy that the most Indian women are smaller )
http://www.anp-photo.com/...earch.pp?page=1&pos=4
http://www.anp-photo.com/...earch.pp?page=1&pos=3
Beatrix received a gift (I`m sure she really admire it, it`s the right gift forher)
http://www.anp-photo.com/...earch.pp?page=1&pos=2

I believe I don`t like HM`s outfit. Maxima recycled, but the hat is new and I love it
