And a good time was had by all! What I like about Maxima is that she seems to have a knack for creating a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere wherever she goes. For her ability to relate to everyone around her I think of her as the best queen there is.
I think highly of EII, and do understand she is much older and a queen of another era.
I am more than happy for Queen Maxima to reign!:)

Right. I'm clinging onto the thought that Maxima had taken off her black jacket off momentarily. If not; well, either she's cold or the others are sweating, and why a sleeveless dress with stockings in late October? - In the end, all I can say is that the dress is not good. - Maxima is my favourite of royals, but this outfit is not!

King Willem-Alexander handed out the Military Order of William to Major Tuinman during a ceremony in Den Haag today, December 4. The 35-year-old Major is now Knight of the Military Order of William of the fourth class. Queen Máxima was present as well.

A clip:



Nice that they are creating new knights in this order again. And also nice for the ministery of defence that they found another one after Marco Kroon, who received a lot of negative press due to his private life and has a court case coming up soon.

It was a wonderful ceremony. Infantry Major G.P. ("Gijs") Tuinman, a former commander of the Special Forces (Corps Commando Troops) was visibly emotioned by the honour.

The King
Queen Máxima
The Minister of Defence, Mrs J.A. Hennis-Plasschaert
The Grandmastress, M.L.A. Baroness van Zuylen van Nijevelt-den Beer Poortugael
An Aide-de-Camp from the Regiment Grenadiers
An Aide-de-Camp from the Royal Marechaussee
An Aide-de-Camp from the Marines' Corps of the Royal Navy
arrive on the Inner Court for the ceremony:

Troops are assembled on the Inner Court in The Hague:
http://www.refdag.nl/polopoly_fs/302...4106130323.jpg

The King, guided by the parade commandant and escorted by one of his Aide-de-Camps inspects the assembled troops:
http://www.refdag.nl/polopoly_fs/302...1023741768.jpg

Major G.P. Tuinman (saluting) was lined amongst a detachement of his Corps Commando Troops:
http://www.refdag.nl/polopoly_fs/302...2518084721.jpg

"Major Tuinman, leave the ranks!" - the major steps forward and greets the King:
http://www.refdag.nl/polopoly_fs/302.../536887280.jpg

The King praises the brave gallantry shown in the most difficult circumstances and tells why the major has deserved this most rare decoration. Before receiving the knighthood, the major makes a solemn vow: "I solemnly swear to act as a true and loyal knight, ever ready to have my life at stake for King and fatherland, and to prove -with all what is inside me- to be worth this dignity, allowed to me by The King. So help me God almighty!"
http://www.refdag.nl/polopoly_fs/302...2284445710.jpg

The King makes the major a knight in the Militaire Willems-Orde by giving a firm pat on the shoulder:

Also other knights in the Militaire Willems-Orde give a firm pat on the shoulder:

Three Knights in the Militaire Willems-Orde together:
Infantry Major Kenneth George Mayhew (The Suffolk Regiment), Knight MWO
Infantry Major Marinus Johannes Kroon (Corps Commando Troops), Knight MWO
Infantry Major Gijs Pepijn Tuinman (Corps Commando Troops), Knight MWO

The troops march past for the King and the new knight:

The ceremony has ended, the King and Queen invite the new knight for a reception inside the Hall of Knights:
