It seems so. Maybe masako's presence wasn't expected to any other events but the actual inauguration. It may be already a huge effort for her to attend any events alone, yet travel abroad or go to one of these events full with protocol must be yet another level. I'm sure everyone is happy she actually made the effort to be there.

Well, I'm glad Masako attended what she was able to which was probably a major step for her. Hopefully, we'll get to see her at more public events little by little.

They left the boat and greeted Armin van Buren and the Orchestra,the beautifull RCO they both are huge fans of both Armin and the RCO!!Unexpected fantastic!!!

Princess Beatrix was on a boat with the Royal Guests and arrived a little earlyer then TM at the Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ where there's a party...but without camera's...sorry...Still,what a day it was...A Dutch treat of sorts,THAT's how we do it here!!
Don't ever let anyone say that the Brits have cornered the market on Royal splendor and pageantry. The Dutch really know how to pull it off. I am properly dazzled!

Beautiful pictures

Here are a series of galleries of wonderful pictures, many very close up- can really get a good look at jewelry and hair. There's a lovely close-up of Maxima's hair from this morning (blue dress and sapphires). And several extreme close-ups of Mette-Marit in her blue and white gown. Her complexion is so exquisite...
Also, on a ruffled red dress note, good thing Mary didn't wear hers last night, also.

Today the world has embraced new royal Princesses in the form of Mary of Denmark and Maxima of the Netherlands. But it's questionable whether even these hugely popular, increasingly glamorous future Queens will ever capture the world's imagination in the same way as Diana.
As Mario acknowledges: "She really was a true Princess".

Thanks to all who posted the wonderful pictures. The boat-ride evening produced the most beautiful clothes of all! And the pictures were very clear.

Congratulations and well done to the Dutch people: not only do you have a new young vibrant King and Queen who seem to be very popular, but it was also a joy to watch the ceremonies and festivities. Queen Maxima looked wonderful throughout and I think her husband should be very proud of her! I watched it all on Dutch TV, all 14 hours of coverage! Nice to see that Prince Albert as the most senior Royal had a prominent position, pity that P Charlene could not attend. Equally nice to see Princess Masako present...

The Court Circular from Clarence House relating to 30th April says that Charles and Camilla attended the Investiture and a reception afterwards at the Royal Palace in Amsterdam. Later they returned to RAF Northolt from the Netherlands. So they were not at the Water Pageant. However, he is likely to be involved in the State Visit of the President of the UAE today.
