It's great to see Beatrix looking so splendid througout the day. Red definitely is a good colour for her. I also like the fact that she's wearing the emeralds, it's not a tiara we've seen her wear a lot in the past.

Sadly most of the emerald tiara seems to disappear in her hairdo and on most pictures we only see 3 green knobs on her coiffure. As the tiara has an unfortunate design it is not a big loss IMO. The brooch is nice though and I am glad that at least Prof. Pieter bothered to show up.

Adding to the shabbyness of this state visit, the preesident of Ghana will lay a wreath on the national monument at Dam square, Amsterdam today. Sadly the palace is still under restauration and right in front of the palace there is a funfair. I think it is the 3rd time this year they have a funfair there, it always annoys me. I know the center wants to get some extra money like this but it just looks shabby, esp. when a formal event is planned.

Anyway, from royalblog:

Q. Beatrix speaks of horror of slavetrade

Of course, the Dutch did not only Ghana's coast for its gold and tropical produce - trade quickly desintegrated into slave trade, but according to Ghana's President John Kufuor that is not what his country holds against the Dutch these days.
There are centuries old common bonds, and he came to The Netherlands on his first and last - Kufuor leaves office in January 2009 - State Visit to strengthen these bonds.

Today the president laid a wreath at the national monument in Amstredam, apart from the funfair the president and his wife turned their back at the monument when observing a minute of silence, they were unaware of the usual protocol. Apart from that the president was late for dinner yesterday and let HM wait and during the preperations of the state visit the Ghanese representatives didn't show up at all, when they were expected to do so...

This is a lovely picture btw.

They could spend the autumn holiday in Argentina. Maxima travelled to Buenos Aires after Paraguay.
