I love this group picture http://www.seegerpress-online.de/top...ER00169822.jpg.
I think Laurentien's dress was much more better than the black one.

We've all looked forward to and enjoyed commenting on our favourite royals' looks during this state visit. There's bound to be hits and misses ofcourse but that does not mean we should draw comparisons meant to praise one royal and disparage another. Im sure we're all capable of expressing our likes and dislikes in a more civil manner, without having to pit one royal against another.

princess Noor is a very pretty young woman, and she seems to have a very good taste, I like all what she wore during this visit
for rania, she looks always classy, no importance what she wore, and if she makes errors of taste

Does anyone know who designed Rania's two evening dresses for this trip? And did anyone get a good view of Rania's handbags on the first and second day and know where they are from? The pictures I have seen are not clear.

Rania's dress on the second night is a Gucci. And Noor's dress that night looks like a Lacroix or possibly a YSL.

I guess everybody cant always get the look right or please everyone. I thought Rania looked the best on the last day,thought the whole look was great. evening gowns were dissapointing, i wished she has obtained for different colors and styles. Maybe when she looks at the pictures she'll not do the same mistake.

Princess Noor was simply beautiful and radiant, it was really good to see her. Hope shell be joing the King & Queen on more official visits. Also Princess Rahma (not sure of her name) was great.

The Dutch Royals seem to have close tie with Jordanian Royals. But with WA away, Princess Margriet might be not in good health to travel alot(i think she did not attend the Baptism of Princess Laurentien's baby last time) so the Queen steps out to accompany the Jordanian King and Queen. But it's clearly that they do hold strong ties these two families.

Thank you ZZZ for the information on the dress. Its beautiful, the small changes she did to it, were for the better. The color she had choosen (the deep red) was a great choice, suits her very well.
