I think that the Queen is too much of a professional to want to ever publicly indicate that she favours one daughter-in-law over the others. Mabel & Johan Friso had to give up any rights to the throne when they married. And the Queen, having two sisters that also had to give up their rights to the throne, is probably very sensitive to perhaps Mabel having any feelings that she is lesser of a person because of this. To me, it seems by loaning the dress, the Queen is indicating that when it comes to family matters, Mabel is just as important to her as Maxima & Laurentien.

I hope I explained this OK. And of course, this is just my own speculation. Who knows? Perhaps the Queen wants to shout it out to the world: Mabel is my favourite! Mabel is my favourite!

I was there! (so was ropura, judging from the pictures (s)he posted here!) It was the first time since 2000 that I saw all of them again, no with 6 new daughter-in-laws.

In real life the outfits look less shocking then on pictures I think.

Some people say Maxima outshone the bride (or tried to) because of her hat, which in my opinion was not true. No one can outshine the bride. The bride is in white and will stand out, especially in the other guests dress colourfull.

Laurentien...well, she looked horrible on both occassions. Her personality makes up for a lot of it luckily, but she needs some help I think. The fashion editor of 'de telegraaf' (not fiona hering bur the other one) even suggested that he next ime she can borrow something from Beatrix as well, as the way she dressed now made her fashin-heart bleed. The gold dress was to long and to gold for a wedding, more suitable (without belt) for a costume party.

Maxima & her hat. As another poster state, Noordwijk is a sea resort, so maybe Maxim was inspired by the parasols of the icecream stands. As it was a 'minor' royal wedding, in summer it is not that akward to dress like this. oe f the other onlookers commented politely... well, she is argentinian.

Princess Christina never knows how to dress. My 91 yo greataunt always explaims 'that poor child´ when she sees her on television. She alway dresses in long dresses, which make her even shorter then she already is.

To squidgy: I do not think Mabel is the favourite daughter-in-law of the queen, but the queen feels/felt the need to show publicly, now and f.e. during the birth of Amalia, that she accepted Mabel. As a newspaper put it in those days, she threw herself like a lioness in front of her daughter in law. Most women (in my family at least) behave like a lioness to protect their family, so it is nice to see that the queen is not different.

The bride looked very nice today. Everybody says she was copying Claire, but this kind of dress is very common and popular. There were many before and after Claire who will wear this kind of dress.

To be argentinian doesn´t mean she has to use that awful hat. Your dutch royal family has a known lack a good taste so I think that lately Maxima taste is under the influence of her family in law. At least she used to be more appropiate when she dressed argentinian designers.

The hat and dress of Maxima are not so bad. However, the earrings and the two tone shoes turn the outfit into a Carmen Mirandaesqe creation. JMO
Maxima would have been better off with solid red shoes and some understated pearl or diamond earrings. Hopefully she will redeem herself in the next wedding.

Fantastic picture misshelen! :)

We never get to see many pictures of royals at the wedding receptions.

I have to say that of all the hundreds of pictures posted, this one has to be my favourite. It certainly is the most romantic one to me!

I kept on thinking about a fruitbasket on her head re her hat even though there was not a single piece of fruit, but now I know, it reminds me of south american carnavale :)

A. WHAT WAS AIMEE DOING IN THAT PINK?!?!?!

B. Beatrix, Pieter, and Margriet looked great.

C. Anita looked very pretty, but it was very obviously a "rip off" of Princess Claire's dress. There's nothing wrong with that I guess, but I would want something more original if I knew it would be all over the press.

D. I don't think Mabel should have worn that dress. It looked wonderful on Beatrix and it was very classic. Mabel looked good, but I like to think of that dress as Beatrix's. :(
