Great news. Let's hope the Dutch queen will finally wear the 'blue stones'. Apparently Q. Margrethe asked Beatrix to wear the blue stones when Beatrix paid a state visit to Denmark in the 80-ties. Margrethe meant the Stuart, but Beatrix misunderstood and came with the Aquamarine parure instead, also blue stones.

The Dutch announcement:

There will also be an economic mission at the same time. The king and queen will be escorted by Bert Koenders (minister of Foreign Affairs) and Liliane Ploumen (minister of Economic Affairs).

I can't resist a little comment on the upcoming Dutch statevisit to DK.

QMII and Queen Maxima together, that's going to be colorful! Radiant in fact! Those present better wear sunglasses.

Forgot PH. He'll go completely berserk, certainly if we consider what he wears when hunting!

I am indeed looking forward to this one; Orange versus Dannebrog! The dinner jewels will be especially fun: my tiara is bigger than your tiara!

A 9 minute video from the first Dutch state visit to Denmark that was recently added to the website of 'beeld & geluid'- probably due to the upcoming visit. In 1922 Queen Wilhelmina and Prince Hendrik visited King Christian X and Queen Alexandrine:

Staatsbezoek koningin Wilhelmina aan Denemarken (1922) | Beeld en Geluid

Other Danish royals can be seen too, among them crown prince Frederik, later King Frederik IX.

Queen Juliana paid a state visit to King Frederik IX in May 1953: photo. This photo must be from a Danish-Dutch state visit too, though I am not sure if it is in Denmark of in The Netherlands - the elaborate sofa makes me think it is not in The Netherlands.

Queen Beatrix went in 1984: photo I, photo II - wearing the 'wrong' blue stones and going for a carriage ride. Though she met Margrethe already in 1954 in Denmark during a summer holiday in Grasten: photo and seven princesses.

The last Danish state visit to The Netherlands was in 1975, when Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik were accompanied by Prince George and Princess Anne of Denmark: photo. And here the Danish queen is admiring 'the Jewish bride' of Rembrandt. And a last one: three queens in a carriage.

That would be wonderful if Maxima wore the Stuart tiara at the visit.

Several members of the Dutch press had a short meeting with Queen Margrethe II and prince Henrik.

Clip:

Koningin Margrethe: aanslagen waren geen verrassing | NOS

The queen commented about the atteacks of this weekend and said she was proud of the way the country reacted.

The conversation took a new direction when Prince Henrik started talking. He expressed his dismay that he does not have the title of King while Maxima is Queen: ' why should I be under my wife? Why? Why should Denmark copy England? And not copy Spain, Scotland? All the queens of Scotland have made their husbands king consort'. The queen could not repress a smile, she must have heard it a million times by now.

Among the journalists were journalists from the NOS, RTL and the author of royalblog/ GPD press Hans Jacobs and Royalty's Marc van der Linden.

"The queen, as she told, as already 43 years reigning no special advice for the new king. "I've never been good at giving advice to people," said Margrethe, who thinks that Willem-Alexander also needed no advice. "He is very well calculated to his task."

The Dutch royal couple is staying during the state visit in March at Fredensborg, three minutes drive from Copenhagen. They also get the chance, as told Queen Margrethe, to their signature in the windows to scratches. "It is an ancient tradition that has been revived by my parents," said the queen."

Royalblog has a more complete article about the 22 minute interview with the queen and prince.

Apart from the Coopenhagen shootings and Prince Henrik's record-on-repeat also other topics were discussed.

the queen mentioned the tradition to carve names in the windows of Fredensborg palace. After the meeting the writer of royalblog even found the signatures of Beatrix and Claus in one of the windows. It was a tradition of Christian IX and was re-introduced by king Frederik and Queen Ingrid. A lovely tradition according to the queen.

The queen was also asked about the abdications of king Albert II, king Juan Carlos and Queen Beatrix. Queen Margrethe II pointed out that she did not consider it a signal for herself and remarked that in The Netherlands it is almost a tradition by now. Beatrix' abdication was expected by all, also by Margrethe II. For the Danish queen the kingship is a life task: 'until I drop dead on the floor'.

The queen and prince therefore have less time for their grand children than they wished for, but that is the way it is. Margrethe II likes to see charectaristics of her sons in her grand children. Christian walks the way that his father does, though he is less shy than his father at that age.

The meeting was relaxed -apart from the unseasy interlude of the prince, which visibly embarrassed the queen. There were however no hand shakes and the journalists were not offered a glass of water.

The Danish courtiers -whom were met in the Yellow palace- were more open than the Dutch ones.

Let's hope so. In Japan the dresscode for the return Event was very low key. But are there not usually more Events on the third and the End in the afternoon. Like this it is more a 2 Day State Visit then a 3 Day.

Queen Beatrix also used to host return dinners in combination with cultural performances. These were not tiara events. The new King may change the dress code or not. Maybe the Japanese return dinner was no tiara event out of consideration for the empress who does not wear tiaras any more? I think that there still is a chance for a second tiara event, but I'm preparing myself for a bareheaded disappointment.

Actually after Máxima married in the dutch RF most return Events during Queen Beatrix reign where tiara Events but whit black tie dresscode. For the new Royal Couple we have so far only the State Visits to Poland and Japan as Examples. Don't remember the dresscode for the return Event in Poland

The discussion about Prince Henrik's comments at the media conference regarding his title/etc have been moved to a separate thread as the discussion warrants its own thread, as it is unlikely Henrik's thoughts will change over time: Prince Henrik: "I Should Be King" Discussion

According to the calendar on kongehuset.dk the State Banquet will be attended by the Crown Princely Couple, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie, Princess Benedikte and Prince Richard and Princess Elisabeth in addition to the Royal Couple. So we will get to see plenty of danish royal tiaras.
