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.
