Almost none of them, but Mathilde and Phillippe speak dutch as well, so they understood.
I saw Mette-Marit singing along, so she must have some knowledge.

I don't think there will be an televised reception, and no carriage ride, but a mine sail later in the evening.

Will the foreign royals participate in the evening events after the reception? Anyone knows? It will be a pity to never saw them anymore today...

I'm not an expert, but I think the singing along was during the National Anthem and the melody is also known as a Christian song, so maybe that was what Mette-Marit was singing?

It was a beautiful ceremony! The new Royal Couple looked extremely regal. Like King and Queen of a fairy tale.
King Willem-Alexander's speech was beautiful, especially the part directed at his mother, and it's great that the children participate during the whole day.

I think this was the woman who said the oath not in Dutch (as did the rest) but in Frisian, this is the second (and only other) official language of the Netherlands.
Probably the other people murmured because they weren't sure whether this was okay to do, but I understand it's not mandatory to speak Dutch during the oath..

Thank you

I live in Australia and I would like to thank everyone who explained the ceremony. Even though I don't understand Dutch, you could feel the emotion. A big thank you from Australia

Oooh! Love love that they played Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings as the royal family left. It's one of my all-time favorite symphonies. It's joyful and lush with melancholy. Love it. This makes the day perfect for me.

I really loved that little nod that princess Amalia gave when she was mentioned. A perfect imitation of the nods her grandmother gives. Perfect!!!

The guy on television said that Willem I didn't want to have someone to place the crown on his head, because that would mean that person is ranked higher than the king.

I wouldn't be too sure of that :p Their Dutch (well, Flemish) isn't that good and the Dutch that is spoken in The Netherlands has a very particular accent. I always wonder how they speak to each other (as they are very close), it must be very amusing to hear

That said, I think Maxima looked really regal! She was so beautiful. Couldn't have been better!

Oh, the dress that Mabel wore ... not a fan, but apparently the ribbon on her arm was one of her wedding dress. Can be seen as a tribute to Friso, which in that case was a nice thing to do.

Congratulations to all Dutch TRF- members on your new regal couple! I'm convinced that they will do their very best for the Netherlands. And thank you for two exciting royalty packed days! Queen Maxima looked stunning today!
