HM has invited President and Mrs.Sezer for dinner tonight in Istanbul as she is very much impressed by the turkish hospitality.The Royals are staying at the Presidents Istanbul residence and it is a warm gesture towards HM that president and mrs.Sezer are flying out from Ankara to Istanbul today especially for her.

Besides that there wasn't an official program for this evening,it's nice and friendly gestures like these that add some flavour to international diplomacy.

This morning the Royals will be floating along the Bosporus,visiting the Blue Mosque,the Aya Sofya and the Bazar,and tonight the private dinner.

End of this afternoon there's a press meeting with the "Orange trio" and the press.

Thanks everybody for all the information and pictures. I especially enjoyed the report of HJA (esp. the interviews with the Dutch-Turkish people were charming). It seems HM has done everything possible to keep the visit positive and constructive, which in the present day climate of our country is quite an accomplishment. Capeau!

I love the coat, but the hat? It seems a thing that Queen Juliana would have picked. Still, it is nice that she decided to put her hair up now. And I also appreciate it that dispite her advanced stage of pregnancy she still is willing to have such a busy sheduele.

It looks like she has been raiding her mother in laws hat closet. I liked the black or blue hat. Don't particular like this one or the pink one.

Without enlarging the pictures on PPE's website, I had to to a double take. Maxima looked so much like her mother-in-law, that it is unbelievable! lol
The pictures were good, though. She looks very radiant!

This hat is just awful! It makes her look 10 years older then she is. Not a good choice at all.

Thanks for the pictures so far. Can't say I like any of the hats Maxima has worn, though I have liked all of the outfits and she looks so radiant! It's great how she is so smiley and interested in everything, considering how tired she must feel.

You are welcome Aurora!

As I said,there's always a summary after a State visit.

Tomorrow march 2nd at 17.35PM - 18.50PM NED2,report on the State Visit to Turkey !

The hat can be as horrible as it can be, but the hairdo was neat and in a chignon. Hehe... finally....
1.000x better than a nice hat and a messy hairdo popping out!

She has stood in high heels for three days, with her overweight and her age (69).
My feet would have been all blisters.

Oh I understand that. But she knew she'd be going barefoot. And who forces her to wear high heels? Don't get me wrong, I say this with love, these feet are not for public display.
