Maxima said in the interview that no one of her family was coming.
No parents or brothers or sisters.
During the day it was mentioned in the banner on TV that her parents were watching on TV in Argentina.

He does speak Spanish. And he´s improved it a lot. I remember some years ago, during a visit to Latin America (Mexico, I think), he was trying his best to speak Spanish, but he certainly wasn´t very fluent. He has a couple of funny mistakes, too.

But last year, during their last holidays in Argentina, I heard him again and I was surprised of how well he speaks it know. He had a good entonation and only a little accent. You could say he´s been working hard on it. Well done to him, and also well done Maxima, I say.

Some of her friends did attend though, I noticed Valeria Delger -who as also one of her bridesmaids and godmother to princess Ariane- and another friend who were greeted by Máxima at the end of the festivities in the Muziekgebouw.

I wanted to ask, was all the festivities peaceful? I mean, was there riots like it happened in Beatrix's Inauguration?

No riots, very few arrests and only about 80 protestors.

Two people tried to protest on Dam square. The intention of one of them was clearly to provoke the police - she said so earlier that day. The two of them were asked to go away and were later detained for 3 hours. Now they are screaming 'murder', comparing Amsterdam to North Korea, saying that a lot of violence was used (this was not the case we were able to see on tv, she came to the square with 6 camera crews). And of course a lot of minutes in the media, which must have been the goal of this provocation - since there were 6 other (empty) places where they could demonstrate. The police has offered their apologies and offered them flowers a day later. They are thinking about a conspiracy though (sigh) , and one of them hired a lawyer.

The good thing about these Dutch republicans is that they usually seem utterly, utterly unsympathetic, sour, left-wing, pretending-to-be-intellectual snobs.
Their message isn't all that odd IMO, the concept of a monarchy is fundamentaly wrong in a democratic society, but somehow they just don't get any following.

-
The other arrests were mainly for alcohol related things in the rest of the city and there was one case of stabbing close to the Central Station, unrelated to the monarchy.

Given that Willem-Alexander's inauguration and teh monarchy itself is perhaps the most democratic - and I would say more democratic that many republics - and that the nmonarchy provides a vital alternative to a republic, it is no surprise that these people have such a small following. Further, do these people really think that their behaviour provides the basis of an alternative to a constitutional monarchy?

Thank you for answering! So his reign started in a more peaceful way than that of his mother.
It shows how great is the popularity of the Monarchy in The Netherlands right now.

I'm still amazed by all of this celebrations, can't wait to get my Hola magazine featuring all of this. Hola, in my opinion, is the BEST magazine to cover great festivities, especially from Royalty, as they seem to be royalists themselves...

Het Wilhelmus klinkt in de Nieuwe Kerk/Dutch National Anthem

I'd never heard it composed it this hymn like version before which was very beautiful.

I will be ordering the edition of Hola on-line because I agree, their coverage and pictures are the best and usually they have twice as much as Hello has!

Can anyone tell us what music was played throughout the inauguration? The Entrata (or rather an updated version of it) was used when the King and Queen made their entrance, but I cannot find any version of this to download. What was the march played when they walked from the Palace to the Church?

Radio 4 - Nieuws Pagina

Here you find all the music played in the church. What I read on the internet the march played when the King walked to the church was the "Grenadiers March"
