Prince Henrik's shoes would be funny as home slippers in front of the living room fire place. But at the Gala?

His shoes (The Albert slippers) are worn about the house with a black tie. It's Victorian thing, old school style.

In the kingdom the King never signs with 'R' (from Rex, or in case of a Queen, from Regina).

When not in the kingdom, the King signs with an R. Also his mother had this habit. Probably they have the idea that the 'R' is not needed because we may assume everyone in the Netherlands knows who is meant with 'Willem-Alexander'.

The King's usual signature

The King's "foreign signature"

Did they stay at Amaliengbor Palace?
I really enjoy it all the phtos and everything of this visit so glad she recycle her coronation dress!

Due to the Tuesday noon deadline Billed Bladet this week only covers the arrival an there are a couple of trivia from the article.

King WA was a co-pilot on the flight from Amsterdam to Copenhagen.
Our Marie almost lost her balance when she curtseyed to the King.

King WA and Queen Maxima stayed at Fredensborg, where the Regent Couple also lives, as their mansion at Amalienborg is being renovated.

They would probably have enjoyed staying with M&F as the close friends they are, but that would have been inappropriate.

The itineraries have been pretty packed, but I am sure some down time was built into the schedule. This would have allowed the couples to rest, deal with any of the day job that needs attention, perhaps speak to the children (for WA & Max) / spend some time with the children (F&M) and get dressed to perform again.

I have no doubt Max travels with her own hair dresser and ladies maid.

Most likely.
There should be plenty of room, because according to a diplomatic practice if a visiting head of state on a state visit has up to twenty people in the retinue, the host country will pay for their accommodation. If there are more than twenty, the visiting country will foot the bill for the extra "guests".

The idea is of course to keep costs down for poor countries and also avoid "harassment" where a visiting head of state bring along say 2.000 in the retinue, which would be extremely expensive for the host nation, not to mention the logistical problems.

I notice that the Scandinavian Royals and the British the ladys use this brooche in formal events with the photo of the Queen/King but not the Dutch, is any reason for that?

It was a wonderful visit and so lovely to see all those heart warming photos. Many thanks to all who posted links and gifs and information. I never realized before how tall WA and Maxima were. The blue inauguration gown perfectly matched the sapphire tiara, I hope she wears it more often. It is a stunning dress.

Incidentally medaillons were given but not on such a regular scheme as in the countries you mentioned. On this picture you see a medaillon depicting Prince Willem IV of Orange-Nassau, wearing the insignia of the Most Noble Order of the Garter, given to his spouse Anne of Great Britain and Hannover, The Princess Royal.

It were not always medaillons. On this picture you see a golden bracelet with a medaillon depicting the then Prince of Orange (the later King Willem II) which was given to his spouse Anna Paulovna Romanova, Grand-Princess of Russia.

On this picture you probably see the most expensive medaillon around: the profile of King Willem III carved in a rock-hard diamond! Given to his spouse Princess Emma von Waldeck und Pyrmont.

So apparently the Dutch had this habit too, often in very expensive form, but maybe it 'died' because the royal family became extremely small: King Willem III survived all his sons and had only one daughter from his second marriage. Queen Wilhelmina had only one daughter. So for decades the royal family consisted of no more than two/three persons.
