Personally I don't like the red nails Maxima is wearing at the Appetjes event.
The discussion you refer to is a typical frumpy dutch pecunia issue by a party that wishes to play the mind of the vox populi in these "expensive times".

As a Head of State,and as the First Family in the land,(as well as the government ministers),(the present opposition loved flying the KBX while still in government,salon socialists,a special breed,love to kick at anything until they can use 'm themselves)they are entitled to the use of the KBX.So,and what if anyone flies to Valentino in Rome to fit some pieces of cloth?They will wear it representing the Netherlands on the right occasion.And for us to OH and AH while worn with the appropiate jewelry.

Furthermore,the Family is far from snobby,they detest that in a person,any person.Makes some posters shift in their seats,now doesn't it?

Note:not directed to anyone in particular,just those whom the shoe fits...

Lucien, terribly well put. This nitpicking about costs in the dutch press/piublic (and most of the time without good knowledge of the situation) has annoyed me for years as well...

Did Queen Beatrix not attend the ceremony?
She used to be there the last years, didn't she?

She did attend the ceremony, but wasn’t seated next to her eldest sons. So here she is (anp)


This news clip offers some insights. (source rtl.nl)

Joris on the Benelux Royals Message Board posted this great link to a photo report on Queen Beatrix and her sons Friso and Constantijn visiting the newly renovated Ridderzaal this week. This is where we all look forward to seeing Prinsjesdag taking place soon!

A very beautiful picture, GrandDuchess! The Ridderzaal definitely is very beautiful! Prinsjesdag will take place on September 19th this year, I think.

Here's another pic from yesterday!
From the Dutch Newspaper Telegraaf

Thanks for posting that link here GD.

I am not to sure if I like the result though. The tapesteries on the walls look very nice, as do the chandeliers and the pilars.

I don´t like what they did to the fireplace though, especially the emblem of the European Union on top (don´t like the estethics of it, I have nothing against Europe).

Furthermore I think the throne looks a bit out of place, it ruins the simetrics of the hall. The platform oin which the throne has been places seems much smaller, as doies the canopy above it. The towelreck behind the throne and the now visible window (and wall) give it an empty look. The cloth of the throne and canopy is very beautiful though.

Another thing which I dislike is that they took away the flags from the roof. As the shields are probably all on the walls now it would be a bit double to have flags on the roof, but this way it looks empty.

Another picture link from Royal Images :

http://www.royalimages.nl/theme/theme.asp?themeid=672

here are some of the photos..

Queen Beatrix, princes Willem-Alexander, Friso and Constantijn, and the princesses Mabel and Laurentien are present at the celebration of the 10th anniversary of Prince Claus Fund in The Hague. Prince Claus fund is a platform for intercultural exchange. Prince Constantijn speeches. He is, with his brother prince Friso, chairman of honour of prince Claus fund.

Laurentien is looking far to eagerly at those african clothes IMO. We should get very worried for Prinsjesdag!

It's nice to see the Family coming together.

Beatrix looked quite happy and elegant.
Máxima looked happy, but her hair still looks messy and I still don't like that coat!
Laurentien in green. The dress looked interesting... maybe a little bit too short.
Mabel was the best dressed woman, IMO.

Maxima's coat is recycled- isn't it that one she wore in Australia?
Also where is Willem Alexander? I have't seen him on photos

I liked Maxima's outfit. It's a pretty brown/goldish colour and I like the bit of shine in it.

Hey Spiffy, welcome back!
I like the outfits of Laurentien and Mabel very much. I'm not a big fan of what Maxima's wearing, it makes her look so huge!
