All the photos from Saturday are just stunning. So many events, it has been great fun to watch just as I'm sure they are ready to go home. I thought Maxima looked really beautiful for her New York visit.

I love seeing photos of the WA and Maxima dancing! They do seem very much in love.

This morning TRH will take the free orange bycicles to get them to Battery Park,again.

TRH will take the salute of the Fleet of both US and Dutch ships,vessels big and small as well as Navy ships of both countries,
from the bridge of Hr.Ms.Tromp in front of the statue of Liberty.
Fly by of Royal Dutch Airforce F16 aircraft

The visit to NYC will be concluded by a walk too and visit of New Amsterdam Village.

Later today TRH will return on a scheduled KLM flight after they have a brief meeting with the press.

Think the visit has been a huge success and they really succeeded in bringing both the origin of present day New York
across as well as representing the US's eldest,and first,allies,The Netherlands.

aww, they make such a lovely couple. her dress is lovely. i love that soft pink color, and the glittery beading (?) perks it up beautifully.

looking at their interacion on the dancefloor, they look still so happy and in love with each other. after how many years together?! it's so nice to see how into each other they are!

I've always thought that from the younger royals there is especially substance to WA and Maxima, like some of their attitudes or not. This has been one of the magic moments when representing their country. A unique opportunity and they made most of it. The schedule of this visit and especially the fact that President Obama, the most powerful leader of the western world, Head of State and Head of Government with an extremely busy schedule these days took time to greet them - the meeting could have done by Michelle alone or Vice President Biden instead, still he took his time. Thanks all for the coverage, especially Lucien for explaining some details and historic backgrounds : - )

i agree, they really seem to have covered so many events and i'm sure since they were quite public many new yorkers now know a bit more on their city's very dutch origin.

so they are coming in a scheduled KLM flight! quite admirable they didn't decide to take any personal planes. i like how they seem to fly in normal flights every time it is possible.

Pity it is so long that I can't translate it one two three,but maybe a fellow dutchman/woman can?There's another video in the line:

On the visit to the White House:
They were received warm and cordially and had talks on many issues,more a brush on many issues,one of them being the President saying how he admired the Dutch care system and could use parts of that to implement in the US,and Máxima and Michelle on being working mothers etc etc

On Hillary Clinton and Alexander knowing her for 15 years now and how warm a friendship there is between them

On the coverage by the US press,it had been on the Morning Shows,and throughout the newsmedia and was well received

How friends of Máxima had called her as they had seen her on the news everywhere and they called to say:'We see you are here and everywhere and why didn't you call,we didn't know you were here.

Máxima said how packed the program was so she wasn't able to drop by,
but also how thoroughly the two had enjoyed it all.

In short.


Willem-Alexander in New Amsterdam Village,it's partly in english and the reportes ends with saying something in the line of;"If history didn't have this slight twist,then all this ( New York City and the rest) could have been all theirs"........Imagine,all of you speaking dutch.

You know that till in the 1960's the dutch reformed church send dutch ministers to the US as many services were still held in dutch at the former first settler towns,like NYC for example?And that dutch is still used in the more traditional areas?

The couple is to arrive back here in just over an hour and home just in time to cuddle the girls and bring them to school!....grin...

Some nice pics on the RH site:

Michelle has a Bachelors & a graduate degree (law). I believe that the Prince & Princess each only have a bachelors degree. However, you are right they speak several languages while she only speaks English. I do agree that it is a conversation of equals. The Prince, Princess, and the Obamas' are a worldy and educated group! I wouldn't mind sitting on a couch and just listening to Princess Maxima talk about her travels. She has the most fascinating life!
