I really like Princess Mary's dress, though I find the colour a little bit too fading.

What else were you expecting exactly? There is little to discuss except the dresses, tiara's and other jewels. It will be the same tomorrow.

Of course it's going to be the same jewels..those pieces are historical.Royalty is all about maintaining tradition.Some people are such debbie downers.

Nice to see smiley Mabel..a bit sad that her husband is oblivious to this historical moment in the Dutch history.

Princess Masako planned to attend the dinner tonight and the coronation ceremony for Willem-Alexander tomorrow, attendance at other events was to be decided after consulting the doctors accompanying the couple.

I am very afraid that the fact that she was not able to do the only two things that had been definitely planned for her will end up having very bad consequences. Even if she should attend the coronation ceremony tomorrow, I doubt that she will be able to make up for her "failure" in the eyes of her parents-in-law, the IHA and the media.

While I am certain that Willem-Alexander and Maxima do not feel insulted at all by Masako´s absence and understand it, I fear that Japanese media will say that she has brought trouble to her hosts and put Japan to shame. I doubt that they will ever let her out of the country again.

I feel so incredibly sorry for her, and maybe even more for Naruhito who has to smile for the cameras, even if I doubt that he feels like smiling...

(Sorry for whining at what should be a happy event. Simply could not help it.)

Keep it coming folks, we can't get enough dresses and tiaras ......

My favourites: Mathilde of Belgium, The Duchess of Cornwall and Letizia of Spain.

The dresses of pcss Mette Maria and Victoria are forgettable, but come to think of it, tonight many of the foreign princesses are somewhat subdued in their sartorial choices.

It's nice to see a smile on Mabel's face tonight. I bet she's doing whatever she can to get through these two days without looking too worried.

I like Maxima's dress- I would not on anybody else, but on her it works! She looks like the Queen she's about to be!Queen Beatrix looks divine! Love that color!

Absolutely loving all of the photos, thank you to all people posting

Oh if only we could set up a designated 'only positives' thread and a 'say what you want thread'. (I would be living in the 'only positives')

I don't think I've seen any negatives that I'd bother wasting my time writing about

ChiraC, a japanese lady, who is supposedly an expert told NOS that CP Masako just cannot adjust to the royal protocol, and she didn't sound nice. Some North Korean newsanchors would have sounded nice in comparison...
