Margriet wears the Emerald tiara, it's almost hidden in her hair but it seems that's the way the Oranjes like to wear tiaras.
It's a shame that they never wear the big tiara's anymore. I suppose 80% of the jewels the own aren't used anymore...., it's always the same with Beatrix c.s.

Well, I'm not a fan of Maxima's Aquamarine Parure. She looks strange on it. It looks like horns or smth. Maybe she should wear her star tiara from wedding?

Btw Beatrix dress is very beautiful.. no matter that is too goldish.

Did Maria Teresa wore this dress before? I think that looks like this one from Visit to Spain and Haakon's wedding.
But Silvia does wear a lot of big tiaras like the Nine-Pronge-Tiara the Cameo-Tiara and the Leuchtenberg-Sapphire-Tiara the Braganca Diamand Tiara is only worn when there a State-Visits from other Monarchs or important Presidents. And Sofia started to wear the bigger Cartier-Diamand and Pearl Tiara which she has worn to almost State Visits to Spain since the Danish Crown Princely Wedding, where she has worn it the first time after 10 years or so. She only seldom wears the Fleurs-de-Lys Tiara the last time was at the State-Visit to Belgium in 2000.

I was thinking about Silvia's Braganca Tiara and Sofia's Ansorena Tiara - both looks very heavy.

The evening look of Maxima and MT is a definite improvement over their daywear. I actually like the aquamarine, it complemented her dress and shawl.

But the have worn them but rarely. Beatrix has never worn her biggest Tiara the Stuart-Diamand-Tiara which was frequently worn by Queen Juliana the last time at her State-Visit to the UK in 1971 and her second biggest the Sapphire-Tiara was worn the last time in 1992. From the four big tiara in the dutch Royal Collection the only one she wears frequently is the Württemberg-Diamand and Pearl Tiara and this one in a smaller setting.

As I wrote before probably they wore them rarely becouse these tiaras are big and haevy.

I have to let go of some personal frustrations:

I wonder why the Queen doesn't sell most of her jewelry collection anyway as 2/3 of it is collecting dust in the vaults and the nicest pieces haven't been seen for ages. If she even let's herself be outshined by a 'mere' Grand Duchess (not only in tiara, also in neclace & brooch) she might want to sell them all, as it is of no use anyway. I wonder what thing she will hide in her hair during her state visit to Belgium, when Queen paola will be standing next to her with the diademe of the nine provinces she will probably wear the eternal floral motive tiara. Margriet might leave the tiara's at home as well as she always goes out of her ways to hide the tiara in her hair. What's the use of it then? Maybe they are afraid of burglars, hence the hiding.
I do not like the tiara Maxima is wearing either, but anything is better then her horrible barbie/ star diademe IMO.

And now I am at it: it would be nice if Laurentien and Constantijn started to join these occassions as well, especially when such close neighbours are visiting!

On a more positive note: chapeau for the Grand Duchess, I was hoping to see this tiara on her, and luckily she can wear it without the diademe becoming to overwhelming.

The dress of HM is in a class of its own, I rather like it, it is very Royal, a sort of costume. The Grand Duchess looks lovely in pink, Maxima's dress isn't anything to special, usually she wears more special things.

Yes, they look so big you could buy a small country with them But the thing on her head is hideous, it makes her look like a mad beauty queen. Or Miss Havisham. And to these poignant words I have wasted my 100th post.

I hope Maxima and Maria Teresa not wear similar outfits to the same event again. I guess both are Nathan's and the designer should know not to dress the two in similar outfits for the same event.

I consider the Grand Duchess equal rank to a Queen - highest royal woman in a family. I am glad to see Maria Teresa finally wear the biggest tiara in the family's jewelry. I hope Maria Teresa will wear more jewelry from the family's vault. I think the necklace is too much with the tiara, but Grand Duchess Maria Teresa is probably happy to finally wear the big one. Overall Grand Duchess Maria Teresa looks perfect. The necklace appears to be the wedding tiara worn by women in her family.

Queen Beatrix has several tiara which are bigger than that one. If she wants to wear a smaller one, then good for the queen.

I think it's such a shame that we always seem to get to see the same pieces. I think I'll neutralize to Swedish citizenship...
But I'd say: wait a little longer with selling them off untill W-A becomes king, maybe Maxima starts wearing some of the older pieces? (Wishfull thinking, I guess...)

Totally agree with you on the Constantijn and Laurentien thing. It surely is about time they start attending these kind of events too, since they will be spare King and Queen within a few years...

The tiara of M-T is way too grand when she wears her hair down... That size of a jewel demands a hairstyle like Queen Silvia's or Queen Margrethe's.
