Thanks for the information, I am looking at the familypicture but I can not see any lady who resembles clearly. I should have taped the wedding as well!
And thank youi for the website, it has some pictures which I haven t seen before (the family on the boat in Italy for example).

Ah, that's why the room looked familiar. It is so beautiful. This is the palace where the Queen has her offices too, isn't it? Is it open to the public at all? It looks like it would be such a wonderful place to visit.

Were she and Maxima working together to get satellite signals from Jupiter with her ring and Maxima's hat?

Maxima's outfit (excluding the hat) was nice on the whole, but rather garish for a wedding I thought. It was far too bright and my eyes hurt from looking at her attired head to toe in such a bright colour. Maybe if the hat had been smaller and in black or navy it would've been less hurtful to my eyes. As for the hat, she could've landed a plane on her head! It looked like something between a flying saucer and a farmer's straw hat! Talk about scaring away the crows!
Thanks, Alexandria! I thought I was the only one who noticed that pink pillbox terror on Aimee's head. What was she thinking??? I look forward to her civil and religious ceremonies with abundant interest.

Let us hope that by that time Maxima and Laurentien would have ditched that horrible designer. That designer must pick their clothing with her (his?) eyes closed and sealed with glue.

Hey! Somebody start a thread on the worst outfit worn by a royal to a civil and/or religious wedding

I'm sorry....but the Dutch princesses..I wonder sometimes, they have HORRIBLE taste in clothes for the most part. I think the only one who really, truly, can pull of an elegant and ladylike look is Princess Maxima. Even the Queen either looks overdone or very dowdy.

I cannot get over Princess Laurentien's outfit for the civil service. Even here in the U.S. that would have raised eyebrows as not being appropriate for a formal wedding.

It's sad when you sigh with relief at Laurentien's (hideous) outfit for the church wedding and say "it's not that bad."

Laurentien is such a lovely woman with absolutely AWFUL fashion sense. An occasional change is okay because it's fun to try new looks, but she's stuck in the "ugo" (really ugly) clothes section. I've said it before and I'll say it again, Queen Beatrix needs to take some control because Laurentien is representing her family and making everyone gag at her clothing! Someone help the woman.

Maxima looked very nice, but it was probably a little rude to attract so much attention for herself on someone ELSE'S wedding day...

I agree with you, Lady Marmalade, that Queen Beatrix sometimes looks very frumpy. Often times, the lines in her clothing are not the most flattering for her body. For both the civil and religious weddings though, I think the Queen did a marvelous job. The colors and fits were just right.

I know...with the Queen it sometimes looks like she is stuffed into her clothes...the gowns she wears for the royal weddings....what is she thinking sometimes?

Someone tell these ladies less is more!! :)

But...these two looked so happy...I give the younger Dutch Royals credit..they do seem marry for genuine love...

The crownprince and crownprincess have their priate offices at Noordeinde 66, a house next to the palace (they can reach it from the inside of the palace). The bigger rooms for meetings with palace staff etc are in the palace and not in this house. The city of The Hague tried to convince the queen to open the palace in the summer months, but the queen always refused that. So the only way to see the palace is to get invited or to work there...

there are certain restored (restoration not paid by the royals as far as I know) rooms in huis ten bosch en noordeinde that I think the dutch have the right to see because they are part of the national heritage.

Princess Magrit has her hands full with two sons getting married this year. Both of new daughters-in-law seem to be very charming and both of her sons look head over heels in love.

Some links for videos of Pieter-Christiaan and Anita's wedding.

The civil wedding video can be found here. (Source: RTL News) I noticed how much Pieter-Christiaan and Bernhard Jr. look alike in this video, especially when they faced the cameras after the civil service.

You can hear them saying their "Ja's" in this video of the church service. (Source: Omroep.nl )

I was wondering if anyone can tell me the name of the song that Katie Melua performs in the above video? It's a very nice song.

Nine million bicycles from Katie Melua here is the text:

Nine Million Bicycles

There are nine million bicycles in Beijing
That's a fact,
It's a thing we can't deny
Like the fact that I will love you till I die.

We are twelve billion light years from the edge,
That's a guess,
No-one can ever say it's true
But I know that I will always be with you.

I'm warmed by the fire of your love everyday
So don't call me a liar,
Just believe everything that I say

There are six BILLION people in the world
More or less
and it makes me feel quite small
But you're the one I love the most of all

INTERLUDE
We're high on the wire
With the world in our sight
And I'll never tire,
Of the love that you give me every night

There are nine million bicycles in Beijing
That's a Fact,
it's a thing we can't deny
Like the fact that I will love you till I die

And there are nine million bicycles in Beijing
And you know that I will love you till I die.

Thank you misshelen! :)

I was trying to figure out the song from the track plays at Amazon yesterday but would never have guessed this one from its name!

Do you (or anyone else) know what the connection between this singer and Pieter-Christiaan and Anita is? Is she a popular sing in the Netherlands? Or is she someone whom the couple like very much?
