Thanks for posting Lucien. I wonder if they will wear tiaras and orders at Noordeinde. The president doesn't seem to have anything against it, considering the state visit to the Scandinavian monarchies (though he did not wear a tiara ), but sadly HM just needs the slightest excuse for not using them and she doesn't.

I was wondering, who usually receives the guests at the airport? That would normally be HM herself, right?

If a "collegue" as in Monarch,yes,the PoO or HM is there to welcome.
With a president,depends on how close relations are really.
In this case it will be Maxima Verhagen,the Foreign Minister,I think.

It has to do with protocol and precedence and what not.Henri would know,I'm sure

Ah, how nice that must be, after a 14 hour flight to find Maxime Verhagen on the airport, I wouldn't blame the president to turn around on the stairs and fly back to Brazil again .

There aren't many things done with royals I think, 'just' the welcoming at Noordeinde, the samba-thing and the banquet? Or will he be accompanied by members of the RF elsewhere too?

I believe there is a Ladies program for Mrs.Lula da Silva,but not sure who will accompany her,partially.Maybe Princesses Máxima or Margriet.

Hmm,yes,having Maxje Verhagen waiting for you,on an State Visit,is almost an insult to the Guest.There have been wars for less.....

Good news (for those who are into royal jewelry): tiara sighting in The Hague tonight. HM is wearing Queen Anna's pearl tiara and a nice brooch:

Toasting

Toasting with Mrs. Lula

It looks a bit weird, HM in full glory while the president is just wearing a tie.

She has a very bad/nagging flue for at least two weeks now,and doesn´t seem to recover,contrary,
each time I see her she looks paler and paler,she´s just not well.

She injured her leg a while ago too.
