That is the secret of her enormous approval in Dutch society: being the lady-next-door and approachable when needed, being awesomely regal and stately when needed (like yesterday), being drop-dead glamorous so now and then (like tonight) and.... what a versatility in haristyles, clothing and jewels....

From the fantastic blog of Mr Kjell Arne Totland, royal correspondent of TV2 (Norway).
Link to his blog: Kongebloggen - Kjell Arne Totland

Look at this enormous picture of Queen Máxima's diadem and brooch ...

And another picture with a good view on the diamond bracelet

That's so awesome! I'd love to meet her one day, I think she'll be a wonderful woman to have coffee with!

At 12 June 2013 the King and Queen visited Maastricht, the capital of Limbourg. They travelled one day earlier. This is what came out of the car accompanying Queen Máxima... The pic was taken in front of the Kruisherenhotel, a former cloister turned into one of the most spectacular hotels of Europe. The salon in the King's suite looks like this.

Royal luggage and royal accomodation...

Wow!! All that luggage belongs to her?! The suitcases aren't big enough for her clothes though... Maybe her shoes, bags and jewels are in those suitcases but I'd imagine a hanging bag for her clothes. That's a lot to keep up with though- I can see why they have a team of people traveling with them.

This was only a one day visit to Maastricht, mind you... No jewels, no tiaras, no gala gowns. Of course for a four-day trip the royal plane is stuffed with luggage.

This is how it looks when a royal travels full force: royal luggage arriving at Oslo Airport for the celebrations of King Harald's 75th birthday (2007)

My goodness! it is just incredible!!!! and what a nice thing not to carry your own luggage! to have all this aids!!!! that you don't have to tip! to take care of your personal staff! I imagine jewelry goes up there with them and special person taking care of them not to be "lost" !and you do not have to go to customs , xray machine etc........! and after arrive to the hotel and somebody open your luggage, iron your dresses, wow, nice , just would like to experience that once in my life time!!!!!!!

For the visit to Hamburg the Queen choose an eyecatching insect brooch. From the large Orange-Nassau collection with insect brooches, the Queen opted for an all-diamond moth.

A good picture is provided by Zimbio. Click on the picture itself to enlarge.

Thank you all for posting these pics. I had missed the giant sapphire brooch and the big diamond ring from the tiara night!
I had also missed the colored bracelets with the red outfit, love it!

And possibly much more than 46 times, because we have not seen pics from the reception for the Diplomatic Corps in most years.

What ashamed is not photos of that! I 'm surprise I would imagine they would take some photos. I like to see the differents hairs styles for even the same tiaras! so how many times she used a tiara before married?
