Maxima looks every inch a Queen! Simply stunning!!!!!

Other winners: Letizia and Mathilde. I didn't get a good look at Mary. It seems that Stephanie borrowed a hat from Beatrix. Mette Marit once again is wearing her grandmother's nightgown

It is nice to see Crown Princess Masako attending such an important event. Crown Princess Letizia and Crown Princess Mathilde looked nice. I liked Crown Princess Victoria's hat.

Maxima looks stunning! The family as a whole looks amazing!

Queen Maxima looks beautiful!

The three A's look lovely too and I like how their dresses are the same except for the collars. They certainly are absorbing a lot today. They're no longer the queen's granddaughters but the King's daughters. They seem somber in some photos, if that's the word I'm looking for.

And ditto on Masako being present. Such a relief to see her!

Don't know how she does it. I know I would.. Becoming queen consort is a big thing and I can imagine it seems more real than princess.

He mentioned them and said something like 'surely they have a mind of their own'
when we hear it back we'll be able to translate it exactly

How come some of the Ministers are swearing one way and it seems that others are saying something different?

Are the people who are swearing their allegiance, monarchists? Are the people who don't hold up their hand not?
