Yes of course. But she knows how to speak Dutch quite well

Well that makes two of us (old fashioned) then, because I just love the dresses and jackets. They look just so adorable in it. IMO this is how you should dress little girls for such an event and not the way Leonore and (i think it was) Zaria were dressed. Sure the trousers are convenient for such a small child, but it seemed more like pyjamas to me. All the children were very charming though.

I saw it to. The kids was adoroble it was fun watching them. When it comes to the kids you never now what will happen. I love the queens outfit it suited her well. I luv the videoshoot from home when the crownprince-couple played with their kids. They really loves dad.

Annette looked very good too. Of course the crownprincess outfit was also goodlooking.

Well, I laughed my head of with these kids.

Claus-Casimir throwing the pillows in the air, running around and throwing with even more pillows. Leonore was walking around too, from her parents to her sister and back again. Amalia pretended to sing along with the final hymn, opening the book containing the programme of the service. The kids pretending to sleep during some speech/music that they found boring, another time they were putting their hand against their ears as they obviously didn´t admire the soprano´s voice. Alexia lost her bow somewhere and Amalia´s hair at the end of the service was completely out of order. Luana was rather quiet and shy compared to the others, never letting go of her stuffed sheep & staying with her mother most of the time. Samuel and Isabella were fed up at the altar quickly too, after 5 minutes they went to their mother as well. When they left the church, Constantijn and family wanted to pose for the camera´s, but Leonore soon had enpough of it and kept walking forward, likewise Alexia was more interested to look what was inside her purse than in posing for the camera´s and she quickly had enough of it too and headed for the car.

The sermon of Rvd van der Boon was very nice, and to underline it they borrowed a painting of the Catharijneconvent in Utrecht. A paining by Rembrant showing Phillipus baptising an entheopian eunoch/minister. Nice that Princess Margriet was the one who read from the bible btw, a nice tribute.

Ines Zorreguita was obviously nervous and shy, she walked curved and she trembled while she handed over little Ariane to Maxima. Didn´t care much for the coat and hat but it was appropriate for her I think, young at least.

Now about the clothes, some got it wrong and thought they were going to a costumed party; Laurentien tried to impersonate Mary Poppins while Mabel went as Barbara Cartland. The Queen had a nice hat this time and Mrs. Zorreguieta looked elegant as usual. I noticed she was wearing the Orange earrings of Maxima while Valeria Delger wore the new purple ones that we first saw in Slovenia.

Maxima ok, didn´t care much for the shiny fabric but still the overall look was elegant enough, esp. on television. Annette looked ok, her normal look, Anita however was the most elegant of the younger ladies. Both Margriet and irene had nice outfits and looked very well. Apparently they made a mistake on the guestlist as it wasn´t Prince Jaime but his brother Carlos jr. who attended the christening.

That was a lovely service. Hopefully there will be a video later today somewhere showing Ines carrying Ariane. I missed that part and most of the parts with the children as my screen was frozen.
Loved Maxima, Mabel and the Queen's outfit. Princess Annette (I think it was her in the red with cream headpiece) was the best dress I think.

I thought Maxima looked stunning, clothes and jewelry. She got it absolutely right. Laurentien looked better than Mabel except for the scarf and sqaure dangly earrings. Margriet looked nice. Anita was ordinary, she dressses very drab, boring.

Apart from the fact that the little girls are always cute I did not like their capes at all.

i also think maxima got it just right. very smart, indeed. i quite liked mabel's outfit, although perhaps it was a little bit too much for a royal christening.

amalia and alexia are two darlings. they seem to easy going and well-manered. amalia looks like she truly enjoys these kind of official events, i adore her lively and enthusiastic, always curious character. the priest also seemed to have lots of fun with the kids.

Thanks, the pictures are great. I love the picture of Ines with Ariane, it's very tender. But do you happen to know who that woman standing behind her is? Without meaning to offend anyone, but she's terrifying

i agree, ines looks adorable with ariane. she must be super proud to be the godmother.

i was wondering if the clips of the baptism will be online at some point, perhaps the most important moments?

Here's 4 more pictures of the christening
I'm currently unable to find any video on the christening, but I did find the song on which Ines carried Ariane into the church, ti's called Her first Waltz, and you can listen to it hear if you like:

Maxima looked great as usual in the baptism! I hope they are able to post the video for those who want to watch it or didn't watch it the first time. Amalia and Alexia looked so adorable. I suppose the both acted up during the ceremony!
