Do we know the Ireland government hosting a state banquet during state visit? Q.Elizabeth wore a Tiara but she usually wears a Tiara even at black events.

How so? (Asked genuinely, not sarcastically.) Because of Brexit?

I guess its plays a part as the visit will be to encourage trade and at the moment, Ireland exports and imports a lot from UK. Obviously, if there is a no deal, it changes things and it would be probably easier to deal with Fellow EU states so the Netherlands will pick up the slack.

Yes she did, in 1990 as the first Dutch monarch ever to do so.

Indeed. It has caused a realignment of Dutch policies in Europe. In the past we & the other Northern countires of the EU could let the UK take the lead in issues like a prudent fiscal policy, free trade etc. With the UK gone there is a vaccuum which these countries tried to fill with more intensive cooperation on financial matters. They created the so-called 'Bad weather' coalition / New Hanseatic League. Last year we already saw three visit to the Baltic states. A visit to Sweden or Finland would not be surprising either.

Ah yes with the late President Hillery and Mrs. Hillery and Queen Beatrix wore a tiara as did Princess Grace and Queen Sonja of Norway.

Thank goodness the visit is on June 12th and not July 12th!

Some of us are still holding out hope that we’re not gone, even if we probably have destroyed all relationships with EU countries and beyond

Besides Ireland, the Netherlands will be hardest hit by Brexit. The Irish because of their geographical position and shared border, the Dutch because of the volume of Anglo-Dutch trade. No wonder that the King visited the UK and now visits Ireland. The two countries fully align with the EU27 but are at the same time the two most interested in achieving an orderly Brexit without too much unrest.

I'm really looking forward to this State Visit - Ireland and the Netherlands, a great combination!

So, there is hope for a black tie state dinner and Maxima wears tiaras to those.
Either way, I think the emerald parure (or parts of it) is a safe bet for this visit.

This is unexpected joyful news thrown into an uneasy week for Ireland’s Brexit prospects. The uncertain June weather for the visit won’t matter with Maxima’s sunny presence!

Dutch State Visit to Ireland 12-14 June

State visits from monarchies are relatively rare for Ireland. The big visit back in the 60s was from the glamorous Monaco couple http://graceandfamily.tumblr.com/pos...o-and-his-wife

Other than the British RF and the Monegasque Princely Family would be the 2 most widely known royal houses in Ireland the Dutch Royal Family with the exception of former queen Beatrix would be largely unknown.

Interesting and refreshing news to hear indeed! I'll be looking forward into seeing the coverage of WA and Maxima's visit. I didn't realise that so few royals had been to Ireland on state visits.

President Higgins is going to look tiny in the photos next to the Royal couple! Hopefully Max might pull a nice green outfit out of the wardrobe for the occasion.
