Many events just say Her Majesty, does that mean its just the Queen?
Becasue November 5 events all say HM and not TRH
and just one event of the CP couple with the Queen

I think it is very unlikely that the CP and his wife will travel all the way to mexico for one event. They will probably accompany HM during the entire official programme, as was the case in Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Turkey, Belgium and India.

I thought the same, why go all the way if WA has one event and Maxima isnt listed.

Images of Mexico,Dia de los Muertos,All Saints and All Souls on 1 st and 2nd of november,is celebrated extensively in Mexico:

Mexico 2009

courtesy hja & Marius Cirtiu.

Images of the last dutch State Visit to Mexico,in 1964 by Queen Juliana,Prince Bernhard and Princess Beatrix.
Princess Irene was supposed to have come with them too,but in the last 10 minutres before departure decided
" to dedicate herself,according to his wish,entirely and only to Carlos Hugo" ,her then fresh fiancée.
Her move not to come along was received with disappointment in Mexico by then President Lopez Mateos and
especially by his daughter as she and Irene had become good friends during Irene's previous stay in Mexico.

In 1964 their was a special stamp in honour of Queen Juliana:

Her Majesty and TRH will arrive at 11.45AM local time at Mexico City's Benito Juarez airport per KBX government aircraft
flying in from Cancun where the Royal party acclimatised the past few days.

There will be an informal meeting at the airport after which they will be wheeled off straight to the Altar a la Patria for the wreathlaying ceremony at 12.30PM local time.The Altar was erected in memory of the childsoldiers,cadets of the military academy,who choose death over surrender at the US invasion in 1847.

At 13.00PM local time,President Felipe Calderon and his spouse Margarita Zavala will officially welcome the guests at the National Palace.

The Royal guests will visit Parliament,and tonight President Calderon will host a gala dinner at the Chapultapec Castle,
once the residence of the Emperor Maximilian and Empress Charlotte.

Chapultepec Castle on top of the hill.The streets are already lined with our red white and blue and the mexican national colours:

Yes they did.The flight was from Cancun to Benito Juarez by KBX,as I said in a post above.
The Prince flew himself,he is a fully licensed pilot.

Thats quite odd to have the Sovereign and heir fly together. I mean, if something wear to happen, that would make little Catherine-Amalia Queen.

Indeed,she would be Queen.And Prince Constantijn would be Regent untill she would be 18.

They often fly together,flying is so much safer now then it used to be.
Driving your car is more of a hasle and more dangerous,so no,we are not
such whimsicals in that regard either.And they got there safe.
What if what if?If the sky comes down we're all blue.
