Maybe because of the "02-02-02" factor?

See this picture of the Prince and Princess arriving at the Royal Palace. The long white thing you see is the modern-style bulletproof pergola which leads from the Palace to the Church.

02-02-2002 it is almost impossible to forget and they wanted their wedding to be on that for that reason

Maxima's gown was lovely & I loved the way she wore her hair curled in the second photo. I think my favorite gown had to be Mette-Marit's, the color was really pretty on her, and I love the shoulder adornment!

Prince Claus was already in very bad health. I think that if WA wanted his father to attend the wedding, it couldn't be any later. Indeed it was the last time prince Claus appeared in public.
