At the Benelux Royals MB I think I also read that there was some controversy with Willem's membership in the IOC due to comments he had made. I wondered what that was about.
I am not aware of what he said. But what causes some problems was that during the time the PoO became a member of the IOC there were some cases of corruption, so the gouverment and others didn't think it would be very wise for the heir to the throne to be compromised due to these scandals.

although the hat is really not flattering, i loved the coat and hairdo. i think it makes her look a lot younger. (the more i see the hat, the less i like it) :(

she looks radiant as always, but the coat is not very flattering (it wasn't very flattering when she first wore in at the wedding of Prince Floris either). Maybe she should open the coiat a bit, like Marie-Chantal did with her version of it. The necklaces are a mess and the hair & hat.... She looks like a combination on an elderly schoolgirl/ Minny Mouse.

I would agree. The pearls earrings with the long dangling necklace. The bow/veil hat thingy. It was too much going on. This is an example were designer label meets fashion disaster.

Her Hairdo is cute, but I don't like the hat in any way... it looks very old fashioned.

The coat would look so much better in another color like pink and the hat was hideous.

Too bad for Maxima, you think Laurentien and Mabel are rubbing on her?

I semi agree. The coat does make her look a little chubby which she is not. She has a beautiful face but the coat doesn't suit her. the hat is very nice though.

She looks really happy and radiant. Her hair do is really nice. The outfit is just too much though with the unflattering tweed coat, long chain, and the hat.

I don't like her outfit. She looks a Barbie with her hairdo and that hat. The skirt also makes her legs look fatter, like maxima88 wrote.

Anyway, she looks very happy and nice, as usual!!

For the first time, I think I actually like what she is wearing and everyone else hates it. I like the fact that it all matches and is "somewhat" subdued. I really like the fact that it looks like she took the time to actually comb her hair instead of having it all over the place. And the headband/hat thing is very very nice. But I would have gotten it without the veil thingy. It made it all a little too formal, but overall, the entire package was very polished. I would like to mention to her in passing though, to find a different brand of stockings. The shiny ones do not do a thing for "chunky" legs. They should be worn only with evening wear. She needs something matte to slim down her legs. But even with these slight imperfections, she still looks very polished, very well put together, very dignified & professional.
Just my thoughts....
