Great pictures, Johann! I think everyone looks great -- Claire looks beautiful once again, I really like the blue on Mathilde, QBeatrix looks very regal in her coat dress and I like QP's longer hair. This seems to be a comfortable visit for all parties -- the two royal families seem very at ease in one another's presence. For those of you who live in Belgium/the Netherlands -- how do you read this visit -- a success?

Great pictures again, Johann! For those who care, there's even a glimpse of silver-haired Duke of Parma in the group photo behind the King!

Wow! Princess Mathilde does look wider with that dress? Wonder if she is just having a hard time losing the pregnancy fat. Her hair looks amazing though.

Actually, it looks more like that she's finally doing what she should have done all along: enjoy a few pints of that exquisite Belgian beer! But seriously now, she looks great in that color blue. Beatrix is in Tudor mode again, good for her.

Princess Astrid is missing today and Laurent still grits his teeth and looks uncomfortable - but at least he is there! Noblesse oblige.

what a lovely dress of maxima! it's just so elegant... definetely stunning.

i love mathilde's curls, she looks perfectly princessy.

i really doubt any other royals can look so professional than the benelux royals. they always seem to look just in the point in this kind of events. everything looked (and looks..) so planned and perfect in terms of looks and organisation.

that's a really impressive schedule w-a and maxima are following... thailand, mongolia, belgium, germany and in only a week and a half...

Hmmm...I quickly skimmed through all the comments and I'm not sure if someone's picked out the most surprising lady at the banquet...........ta-daaaaaaa! Queen Fabiola!
She wore that dress some (I'm pretty sure) 30 years ago and got back into it with ease!!! Now, how many women can lay claim to THAT!???

Well, I had the same impression when I saw Queen Fabiola, as I remember I've seen some pictures of a young Fabiola wearing THAT dress.

She doesn't look very assured, that's not strange, because everybody is talking about her belly
