I would not jump to the conclusion that this could have to do something with Princess Máxima's pregnancy...
Well, I just said that because that was the caption of the picture.

Dutch public tv has a "special" royal news reporter,miss Maartje van Wegen,(ill-)famous for her coverage of royal events over the past decade,who btw is on her last call with this visit.Usually after any state visit dutch public tv also airs a 30 minute,or so,summary,as a "bonus",emphasizing the highlights and backgrounds,in the weekend following the visit.There also is extensive coverage beforehand about the countries visited.In this case,with hundreds of thousands dutch of turkish descent,it is not just the dutch media,but the turkish media is there in throngs too.(We have lots of turkish tv channels/papers here as well).
Thank you so much for your response and the additional links I'll definitely check those out. I was just really curious what it's like in another country when the head of state is on a visit such as this. Sounds so great that they keep the public so informed. Very different than here.

Skycan,I think the Aya Sofia,the Blue Mosque and the Bazar are scheduled towards the end of the morning/early afternoon.

On friday they visit the Topkapi Palace first thing in the morning followed by the Istanbul Modern museum,so you and QUEENECE should have a chance to see them.

I was about to ask the same...anyway i must say the outfits looked really black to me as well ...

About the soil...is this customary (regarding the Royals, that is)?

Interesting. Perhaps something got lost in translation but I cannot imagine that a pregnant woman needs 8 teams, maybe they meant 8 physicians. Also if she is 8months pregnant that probably means that she is due sometime next month and not April as had been announced.

I think Maxima looked nice when they first arrived to Turkey, but that second pink/orange outfit was really terrible (Earrings to DIE for, though). She looked nice at the gala dinner as well, even though I'm not crazy about the aquamarine set .

Today, she looked cute too, but again tired. And tonight, she's stunning IMHO

The ravissante lady sitting direct behind the Queen is Her Excellency Martine Louise Amélie van Loon - Labouchere.
For almost 20 years Lady van Loon is the Queen's Grootmeesteres. (The British equivalent is: Mistress of the Robes).

The uniformed gentleman next to the Grootmeesteres is Cavalry Lieutenant-General A.G.J.M. Blomjous, Chief of the Military House of Her Majesty The Queen, Aide-de-Camp General.

Picture.
