In Germany it's called "Königswetter/King's weather" when the weather is great, so Dutch refdag.nl is quoting that

I wonder if they invited the duke of Bavaria to the dinner but I doubt it. Q. Beatrix did invite one or two German royals to her last state visit to Berlin (the Sayn-Witgenstein-Sayns and the Anhalts IIRC). For the dinner it seems that the queen wore a pale gold outfit her hair down.

Apart from the 'Königswetter' I see they also took a Frau Antje to Germany, lucky you .

I was in Munich today among others at the Reisdenz. There Duke Max and Duchess Elizabeth in Bavaria where among the guests. But i think they where not invited by the dutch royals but by the the bavarian government wh hosted the Dinner there.

Nice that they were there. I believe Duke Max and Duchess Elisabeth have attended a few royal events in the Netherlands: the funerals of princes Claus and Bernhard and the 60th birthday celebrations of Q. Beatrix. At the latter event their three youngest daughters were also present but sadly nothing came of it. Duke Franz and Duke Max also attended Bernhard and Juliana's 25th wedding anniversary (nothing came of that either ). I don't think they attended the wedding of Willem-Alexander though.

Just seen a short Report on bavarian TV where the showed part of the speeches. Duke Max was seated next to the Queen. I think between a marriage would have also been the religious problem as the Wittelsbachs are staunch catholics.

I'm glad the Bavarian royals were part of the events, though I wonder why not Duke Franz. Wasn't the Queen Catholic, or from a Catholic family.

Maxima is still Catholic. She wasn't required to convert on marriage.

I think it may be a bit prickly for the Dutch royals to invite the Bavarians to the event. The German titles are no longer recognized by the state. If it had been a private event, of course the guest list would be open. But they are there on official business. It's different if the government invites them to intend.

As for Franz, perhaps he was simply unable to attend. Or perhaps, as he is head of the former house, it was thought better to send/invite Max.

Could also be thatr Duke Franz was there and i have not seen him there. Duke max and Duchess Elizabeth only arruived after the Royal Couple and there was much going ion. As for the religious Issue yes Máxima remaine cathiolic but she still had to agree to raise ther daughters proterstant and marry in a protesytant Ceremony something i have my doubt that the Wittelsbachs would agree to.
