Because let's face it, Evita was a manipulative control freak and ruthless social climber not to mention a fascist (yes yes, Maxima's dad was affiliated with a fascist regime too of course, but let's forget about that for the moment).

Even though I do believe Maxima's also likes to be in control and the jury may be, to some, still out on whether she is in fact a social climber or not, I think Maxima is a stellar example of a great Argentinian export product whereas Eva Peron just wasn't. Maxima is much more diplomatic for one thing, and way way way less dogmatic. Eva Peron was street smart. Maxima seems both street smart AND can boast an education most humans on the planet wish they'd had. I could go on and on but I think what my point comes down to is that in the end, Maxima and Eva P. have much much less in common than it would seem on the surface.

On topic again, no comments on the new cloth on the throne?! I think it is exquisite! Soo beautiful. Used to be red, now it's midnight blue with gold embroidered patterns. They say Beatrix might have weighed in on the design of it?!

What's up with these pictures of the queen in her attire, leaving in a dumpy car?? I take it this is after the balcony scene in Noordeinde??
They really goofed here, they shouldn't show this. Couldn't they have left through a back door or something? This is taking away from the magic of the golden coach etc etc.

It actually is the backside of Noordeinde Palace. I think the Queen is leaving for Huis ten Bosch Palace.

Many thanks to everyone for the photos! In my opinion everybody looked great today, especially Maxima- I loved the flower in her hair.

A corset over a jacket? You wear a corset under your jacket or with your suspenders and nothing else - what a fashion disaster. I like the Queen's outfit and Princess Margriet's but which drag queen is Margriet taking make-up advice from? She's got it plastered on and her eye-liner is so thick I'm suprised she doesn't have to throw her head back to open her eyes.

I'm not familiar with the back side of Noordeinde, I'd have thought they had some sort of private park in the back, not accessible to paparazzi?

I think Princess Magriet is ill and not feeling well today. I could see she tried to hide feelings of pain with a sort of grim. She was totally not her exuberant self. It speaks for her sense of duty that she was vast determined to accompany her sister.

I liked Princess Laurentien's fantasyful outfit. The train was very elegant too. It is no Holy Mass or a Coronation. Just the highday of democracy which is a very festive day in the whole of The Hague, with balls et al.

Actually, I believe this was the "best-dressed" Prinsjesdag in recent memory.

Princess Margriet always seems to wear alot of make-up. In the picture of her leaving in that brown ensemble, she's taken it all off and still looks good so why go a la Dame Edna in the first place?

Princess Laurentien's outfit was perfect apart from the corset which was just too strange.

Anyone else heard the news about the Golden Coach? Apparently they are planning some drastic restaurations. According to my local newspaper three generations of royal behinds really left their mark to the fragile embroidery on the lining. The coach will need new booklet gold and the paintings on the sides have to be restored.
The paper also reported that the glass coach would be restored as well, but I suppose they mean the Gala Glas Berline that Margriet and Pieter used today.
Works to the Golden Coach will take three years to complete and will be done by personal of the Royal Mews. The director of the National Coach Museum will give advice so he told the newspaper Dagblad van het Noorden.

Here's the link to the newspaper article ( in dutch)
http://www.dvhn.nl/nieuws/noorden/article920142.ece

And for those of you who like to see the bad state of the interior of the coach: http://www.koninklijkhuis.nl/content.jsp?objectid=4602
you need quicktime for this.. and maybe the refresh button.

You know, for once we agree on something. Laurentien looked HORRENDOUS, which is really nothing new for her. The color was the only thing I liked. I liked that color. On anything that but that outfit, mind you. She's not exactly a 10, so when you add that to her inability to dress sometimes, it's a bit of a disaster.


Maxima looked nice. I liked the combination of black and white, but I could do without the flowers in her hair. Maybe one flower tucked in the chignon or french twist would have been fine, but that many is just overkill.


I hate the Queen's hat. It looks like a boat.....or a serving dish. I can't make up my mind which one.

Noordeinde Palace is a great 17th C palace, but it lies in the middle of The Hague's city centre. It has a green park (the Princesses' Garden) but it is enclosed with royal buildings like the various wings of the palace itself, the Royal Archives, the Royal Stables, etc. That is also why since 1948 no any royal has actually lived in there.

Princess Laurentien was fantastic. She had a very elegant train and her wonderful female silhouette was perfectly catched with this gown.

Princess Máxima was muy latina and very regal, like her spouse by the way.

On TV the Queen was sparkling: there is a golden glimmer over her lamé texture robe and together with the diamond earrings, broche, a diamond pin on her back, diamond bracelets and rings, she did look very glitzy on TV. Something the pictures did not chatch at all.

The music for the Entrata was heavenly and the restorated Ridderzaal was a lustre for the eye indeed.

I think that if the jacket had been allowed to go all the way down to where the corset finished, it would have been a brilliant outfit. But she hasn't got a good figure so what we got was her being chopped in half by some old boot laces and it wasn't flattering. She obviously thought that a corset would give her an hour glass figure and it might have done had she worn it properly. The skirt was actually quite nice but it's that corset that really let her down.

Henri M, the Queen's frock was definately not lamé, it didn't shimmer like lamé and it certainly didn't hang like lamé. The jewellery she wore was stunning but then diamonds can't be anything else can they? I liked the frock - the sleeves were quite funky but I think the whole thing needed colour. And the hat appeared to be picking up Sky.
