She just arrived at the airport in non-official capacity, that is all. Nothing to do with the State Visit.

Not in the blink of an eye. In between the cockroach and the emeralds was a big diamond brooch: https://blauwbloed.eo.nl/fileadmin/b...df9201c5f4.jpg

Don't hit me, but I don't mind the giant beetle. It's eye-catching, modern, fresh, fun... and won't certainly be seen often. So no panic.

Those emeralds at the banquet were great, I really enjoyed seeing them on her again. The tiara still would be nice with two more emerald prongs to make it more substantial and to give it a more balanced look. And the necklace is very yummy, if you ask me. I really loved seeing it again. And great choice to wear emeralds as a not to the Portuguese flag.

I agree, two more prongs on the tiara would be great. Wonder why they don't retrieve them from the pair of earrings that were made with the original prongs from the tiara?

She looked great tonight, I love it when she wears brooches in her hair. And I'm looking forward to a better pic of the necklace.

Or might it be one of the ears of wheat brooches in her hair?

The jewels are fabulous and just perfect. Only thing is, stripes on any woman going any which way is not IMHO a good thing to wear so the gown is a huge miss for me. Not one of her best looks tonight.

I thought it was fabulous for an evening at the theatre, look at the spectacular effect of the flowing cape catching wind, the whole ensemble completed with beautiful jewels: picture.

Stripes when done right an be beautiful. If it was an entire gown of stripes perhaps not. But this is one stripe. And the angle of it looks beautiful when in motion, with the cape out behind her.

I do understand about the way the wind caught the cape and gown itself, yet my eye went right to the black stripe across the middle, even though it is a dramatic gown for the evening, it is not something I would wear as I do not like stripes on any thing. So given that it is a miss IMHO. And I do not even own a single piece of clothing with stripes....just not my thing!

Very theatrical, I agree, I quite like the cape element of the dress, though I am not sure the stripe element, if I could call it that, do very much for me.

Let's stay keep it to the jewels, as this is not the fashion thread.

I love that the chose emeralds for one evening and rubies for the other. Green and red, for the Portuguese flag.
Has anybody seen a close up of the brooch in her hair? Because I haven't, and I'm not sure which one it was.

I don't think she's worn this tiara since 2014.
I'm glad she wore the emerald parure. I was getting tired of her wearing the rubies or the sapphires. The emeralds are some of my favorite Dutch royal jewels although they don't seem to have many fans here.
