Margriet is still a wonderfull lady altough she was absolutely not handsome when she was young. She and her husband look happy , They enjoy their wonderful family : 4 sons, 4 charming daughters in law and ?? grandchildren.
What a difference with Irene's life.

It is best seen on the Presidential website with the amazing,and excellent quality,pictures by Jose Manuel de la Maza.

The diadem worn by HRH Princess Margriet is the converted necklace of Queen Emma's grand saphire parure,a piece not seen for a long time,but beautifully converted into this marvel.

Irene is quite happy in her way of life.She might not always have choosen the easy way out,like most do,but she is nonetheless worthwhile as a human.The fact she only has one grandson and one granddaughter,both of whom she regularly sees by the way,is not to blame on her.More the children that choose not to get involved into anything to quickly....allthough 40 years and over is a bit of a stretch.

Well,again nice jewelry surprises. The sapphire necklace as tiara (why didn't they think of that decades ago!) and Maxima with new chandelier earrings. Judging from the design I suppose they are new, maybe a gift of somebody in the UAE. The bandeau looks fabulous again, and I wish she always put her hair up. She is also wearing Queen Juliana's diamond watch.

President Bachelet is one of those people you take an instant liking to whenever you see her. A pity they çouldn't find anybody more appropriate to fetch her from the airport, now they just send the state secretary of European Affairs (who was supposed to be touring the country with the Euro-bus AFAIK).

Why don't they make the pictures before the gala dinner in a more appropriate room? The beige curtain doesn't do anything to enhance the photos.

Will there be any other incoming state visits this year? Otherwise it is probably the last time we will see Máxima with a tiara in 2009.

that's an interesting detail about princess maxima's new earrings. how could you guess they were from the UAE?

i agree on michelle bachelet's comment, she seems to have a certain aura and always transmits really good vibes. plus, she seems quite diligent. ditto on the curtain, we'd love to see something more exciting in the background!

i'm sure there will be more state visits to come, the dutch seem to be quite active in that sense (aren't they?)...

Is there a reason we don't see Irene. I haven't been following the DRF for very long so forgive me if I ask something inappropriate!

Irene is not a member of the Royal House,the Family,yes,the House no as she is not in line to the Throne.
I suggest you could read her thread.

Does Princess Maxima act as the Queen's official Spanish-Dutch translator if the visiting Head of State doesn't speak English? Princess Maxima appears to be playing a greater role in this visit.

The earrings are not some gift from the UAE Marengo.
It is much closer then that.

A lot of surprises in the dutch royal family about their new jewels. Perhaps next time we will see the most famous tiara : the Stuart on ??
Lucien , you are wright about Princess Irene , or better Irene von Lippe-B.
She made a choice in her way on living.
We see more often Prince Hughes of Bourbon-Parme at the Dutch RF events.

No,HRH is not the Queen's translator,the Heads of State speak french,but with Maxima around it is inevitable and fully agreeable/understandeble the Ladies speak a lot of spanish too.HM herself is a polyglot as well,so don't be surprised
she can very well listen in.(Was looking for another word for speaking many languages,but lost it,what was it again..?)

It really is a power girls event isn't it?......
Just out of courtesy,and reall appreciation,for the person of President Bachelet.HM and Maxima are very fond of her,
you can sense the chemistry between them

It is no longer just Irene von Lippe Biesterfeld.

HRH has changed back to the HRH Princess Irene of The Netherlands,Princess of Orange - Nassau,Princess of Lippe Biesterfeld title,
as she now feels comfortable with all that,as she stated last year or so.Marengo might know more,or it is in her thread here I am sure.
But we are getting way O/T here,maybe better to ask in her thread.

i'm sure they have no problems communicating. not only maxima speaks spanish, but michelle speak several languages with ease.

i love today's silver outfit of maxima. very 'herself' :)
