The last State Visit from Sweden was in 1976,shortly after the King married Silvia Sommerlath,a festive occasion.The Godson of Queen Juliana presented his bride to her.I recall marvellous pictures from the Banquet at the Royal Palace,Amsterdam.

The State Visit in this year,2009:The Juliana Year,isn't a coincident,and it is a week ahead of the birthdays of HM and the late Queen.

It is not very likely that princess Madelaine or even crown princess Victoria will attend, the Swedish royal website only mentions the king and queen (as does the Dutch one). Crown Princess Victoria did escort her parents to Belgium though, so who knows...

I have faith that queen Silvia can pull it off. The first time that we might get a grand gala (with tiaras) at a return banquet in The Netherlands since Beatrix' reign started. Though if the Dutch court will politely ask the Swedish one not to use tiaras the second day as they think it is harmful for their image or whatever, I suppose the Swedes will don't mind that either.

I don't think so Marengo. You usually adapt to the country you visit. So I don't think tiaras for two nights in a row and I am one of those people who does not mind one bit if there arent any tiaras for both nights (I think gala can be too much when it's overdone)
