Newspaper 'Telegraaf also has a report on the press meeting, in Dutch here.

They say that king Carl Gustav said that the late prince Bernhard always called him on his birthday to congratulate him, and he added that Bernhard was a nice man.
The King also discribed queen Beatrix as ' ambitious, extremely ambitious, always busy' - to which queen Silvia diplomatically added that that wasn't meant in a negative way.

Other papers also have articles about the press meeting, though most not on their online editions. They praise the kings openness. The Telegraaf reports that although the king is somewhat shy he gives a lot of interviews each year, which they find admirable. They also add that the king is too modest about his influence. Due to these interviews he has more moral influance than he claims.

-
Newspaper 'Algemeen Dagblad' has an article (in Dutch) here about the Swedish monarchy, and the a-political model they have there. The newspaper points to the advantages of such a system. They also say that it is untrue that the king of Sweden is just a paper doll who cuts ribbons. Due to his ceremonial role he is more free to speak his mind for example.

-
The Reformatorisch Dagblad (unavailable on Sunday) has an interiew with the Swedish ambassador, and they wonder why it took the king 30 years to come to the Netherlands again.

-
Newspaper the Volkskrant also reports about the press meeting, with a special attention to the a-political role of the Swedish king.

-
Etc. etc. I have to say that I can not recall any other recent state visit from a smaller country that received this amount of attention in advance!

Princess Laurentien has activities in the Netherlands on the 21st and the 22nd, so perhaps she will attend a part of the visit. So in the best scenario we will see 8 different Dutch tiaras!

On the occassion of the upcoming state visit, the NOS has put two clips online of the state visit that Queen Beatrix and Prince Claus paid to Sweden in 1987.

Day 1: http://koningshuis.nos.nl/video/beki...den-dag-1-1987
Day 2: http://koningshuis.nos.nl/video/beki...den-dag-2-1987 Note the kiss-hand Queen Silvia gives in the end.

-
And they also have a clip of the state visit by king Gustaf VI Adolf and queen Louise to The Netherlands in 1955: http://koningshuis.nos.nl/video/beki...nederland-1955.

The NOS will broadcast a report of the visit on Friday, from 18.50 to 19.20 at nederland 2. That is apart from the regular reports in the news.

NOS Staatsbezoek Zweden - Aflevering - Gids - Nederland 2

-
Another article in de Telegraaf, highlighting that king Carl Gustav intends to reign until he dies: Gustaf, koning tot de dood - Buitenland - Telegraaf.nl [24 uur actueel, ook mobiel] [buitenland].

In the press the state visit has been used to highlight the differences between the Swedish and Dutch monarchy.

-
And the ministery of Defence has a message saying that the honorairy gurds of the Navy will be present at the welcoming ceremony at Noordeinde Palace: http://www.defensie.nl/marine/actuee...gin_van_Zweden

--
Press release from the Swedish embassy:

Quote:
State Visit to the Netherlands


Their Majesties King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia will pay a State Visit to the Netherlands on 21-23 April 2009 at the invitation of Her Majesty Queen Beatrix.
The Swedish Government will be represented by Minister for Education, Mr Jan Björklund and Minister for Employment, Mr Sven Otto Littorin.
Read more here.

------------------------------------

I suppose that princess Maxima will receive a Swedish order during this visit.

Most likely she will get the Order of the Polar Star, the same Princess Mathilde, Crown Princess Mary and Crown Princess Mette-Marit have.
