Well, it might be interesting to know that the pattern of her dress is in daisies (Margriet is dutch for Daisy). Her bouquet was also made from these flowers. Margriet was wearing the base of Queen Sophie's coronet with pearl and diamond buttons. Queen Beatrix wore the tiara at her inhauguration in 1980 while Maxima wears the base of the tiara but with diamond stars, on a frequent baasis (most natably during her wedding).

For those who are interested, the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision has digitally restored some footage from Margriet & Pieter's engagement, visit to City Hall and their wedding.

They have also done the same for Juliana, Beatrix (smoke bombs and all) and Irene's wedding.

They are quite fun to watch - everyone is so young, in love and less "polished" then they are today!

It is all in Dutch of course, but it is pretty easy to figure out what is going on.

The videos can be found at http://www.beeldengeluid.nl/template...ie&artid=12585

On the right side of the main page, there is a heading, called "Fragmenten". Under that there are various pictures of Juliana, Beatrix, etc. Within each group you can pick whether you wish to view using Real Player or Windows Media Player. Then just select "breed" or "smal".

Thank you pdas1201 and Squidy for the wonderful pictures of Margriet and Pieter at their engagement and on their wedding day! :)

I have always had a special fondness for the Apeldoorn branch of the Dutch royal family. Margriet and Pieter and their sons and their respective wives and fiancees are such down-to-earth, friendly and humble royals.

That's the same tiara Maxima now wears with the stars, instead of the round pearls, right?

Margriet's and Pieter's wedding took place at Sint Jacobskerk, The Hague.

Here is a picture of Beatrix and Claus leaving the church. (ANP)

I think a blue octopus sat on Beatrix's head!

I'm certainly not a big fan of Princess Margriet's dress, but there's nothing particularly ugly about it. And Pieter is just so cute looking -he's got that sweet nerd look about him that is very endearing. They make for a very sweet couple,

Thank you so much for this link, I just spend two hours looking at all the royal filmfootage, it is so wonderfull. My favourites are the wedding of Juliana and Bernhard and the enthronements of Juliana and Beatrix. My grandmother and great-aunt went to both the wedding and the enthronement of Juliana and still share anecdotes about these days with me (and the rest of the family). I think you made me addicted to this site, squidgy!

Margriet is one of those women who become much better looking as they age.
