Thanks Maxie & Marengo! I guess it's been a long time since Beatrix wore the complete sapphire set? We would probably faint in shock if she were to wear it nowadays.

Actually I kind of like the "mix & match" look on Beatrix!

Yes, Mathilde doesn't look like herself, she looks like Sissi in the Romy Schneider movies.

And prince Laurent doesn't seem very happy; maybe he still has pain caused by his motor accident last week.

But I'm happy princess Claire came out again, it's the first time we see a picture of her since january. And she looks ravissant.

I love the middle picture in the above post -- it looks as though Queen Fabiola is greatly enjoying watching the "young people" develop friendships that will hopefully carry them into the future! Does anyone know who the man is next to Mathilde in the third photo? Is it Constantijn?

First of all this looks like a very nice family affair. It is really charming :).

I adore Claire's dress! Mathilde's curls are certainly a different look for her. This is really a nice state visit because we see so many younger royals. We see Willem-Alexander and Maxima, Phillipe and Mathilde, Astrid and Lorenz, Laurent and Claire, and Constantijn. It would have been nice to see Laurentien, but she certainly has more important things to take care of! :)

Thank you everyone for the photos. It's lovely to see that Mathilde and Maxima seem to get on so well. I thought they both looked fantastic (during the greeting at the airport), but what was with the hats? I don't think I've seen Mathilde wear the red outfit before. As everyone has said, she looked a little different for the gala dinner, but it was nice to see her with curls. Her dress is very beautiful. I also love what Claire was wearing too, and it's great to see her too. Haven't seen her for a while.

I liked Mathilde's curls and dress. I also liked Claire and Paola's dresses. The others I'm not so sure about.

Both Maxima and Mathilde look stunning! I love Maxima's dress and I love Mathilde's hair and make-up. Its very different for her but she looks great. I also like Fabiola and Paola's summer time dresses. Everyone else looks very nice and happy to be around each other it seems. Its great to see many family members there from both sides.

Wow! All of them look wonderful!!

Mathilde's new look is quite becoming on her. Maxima as always looks great. I am so glad to see Astrid and Paola, as well as Claire. The men looks so regal and handsome. It's soo great to see them all together.

Thanks for the pics, all who've helped bring them to the forums. :)

No kidding! Actually, come to think of it, in some ways it does make sense: either Carlos or Jaime works for the European Commission in Brussels, plus Beatrix is extremely fond of CH it is said, and it seems likely CH also does go way back with Albert and Paola.

LOL, yes it would be great if we can gush over yet another of her 'opinionated choices' so to speak! By the way, nothing against Laurentien the person, who is my number 2 favorite Dutch royal.

Lovely pictures. I'm just surprised at Mathilde's figure, I know she just had a baby a couple months ago, but she wasn't that wide years ago when she gave birth

Does anyone else think that Mathilde is wearing a hair piece since the curls color do not match the top of her hair? Also, I don't believe the length of hair is this long to suppport these tight curls.
