Among the guests at the state banquet was also the other godmother of the king: Renée Feaver, nee Jkvr. Röell.

She married a Canadian and lives in Canada.

Queen Maxima shone spectacularly at yesterday's banquet! So she chose rubies to go with the Canadian colours, which was very appropriate. I'm quite looking forward to today's pictures.

Here's the schedule from the Canadian embassy. My mom emailed it to me (my parents were born in the Netherlands): Their Majesties King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima State visit to Canada | The Embassy and Consulates | Kingdom of the Netherlands, Canada

I too am in Toronto and thinking of going to see them tomorrow! I just don't know if the public will be able to see them...Does anyone have a suggestion of where it would be best to see Willem-Alexander and Maxima in Toronto?

The second day of the state visit to Canada takes place mainly outside the capital off. The King and Queen began the day in Waterloo, where several cooperation agreements were signed between universities in Canada and Netherlands.

Marlene, it's frustrating for us Royal Watchers to try to get specific information (i.e. exact times) about this visit! I ended up contacting the Dutch Embassy and asking them. They amazingly replied within minutes with the information. Not sure why they can't post it on their website though. I guess for security reasons? Seems kind of silly. Anyways, the Embassy contact info. is here. As you can see, there is actually a Consulate General Office in Toronto.

An article from the Daily Mail on last night's state dinner.

I found this at https://www.koninklijkhuis.nl/global...english/news/:

Quote:
"In the afternoon the King will hold a speech at a Canadian-Dutch seminar on resilient cities. At the seminar, Dutch businesses and public authorities will speak to their Canadian counterparts about the challenges and solutions connected with urbanisation and the economic development of waterside cities. Climate change makes it necessary to reflect on these issues. The next part of the programme will take place on the Toronto Islands - a chain of recreational islands off the Toronto coast - where the King and Queen will unveil one of the seven Tulpi seats that will be presented to the city of Toronto. The seats have been placed looking out over the city's waterfront and skyline. The state visit to Canada will conclude with a reception for the Dutch community at the Art Gallery of Ontario."
It seems the best place to see them would be in the afternoon, at Toronto Islands or the Art Gallery of Ontario. They don't give the exact times unfortunately. I think the best thing to do is to pick one spot around noon and hope that you get a good view of them.

I hope one of us sees them!

Edited to add: Thanks Squidgy - I will contact them too. :)

Maxima looked amazing last night at the State Banquet. Every inch a Queen.

Good Luck to our Toronto Members trying to see them tomorrow!! I'm thinking the AGO might be your best bet from the sound of things.

I don't know which is the best place to see them. But I think the "funnest" place to see them would be Toronto Island. I love going there - a wonderful place to be on a hot summer's day. And it will be a Friday engagement, so hopefully the Island won't be as crowded as it would be if it were the weekend.

Regardless of the location, I hope you both get a chance to see the couple, Rmay 286 and Marlene. And please report back to us if you do!

HM must have borrowed the hair spray of her mother in law .

Apparently the contra--prestation was offered in the museum of History, in Gatineau (Quebec).

I guess that Queen Beatrix' hairspray has stood the test of time . But Maxima's hairstyle of yesterday's gala won't. In the PPE pics you can see that she wore three ears-of-wheat brooches on the flat side of her hair, which is a nice try. But it didn't save the hair, imo. Great dress and jewels though, and once more red for Canada.
