Yes. It always surprises and upsets me how people on this or other boards just claim things without any substance

She met the King before she went to the museum not after. There are plenty of tweets on the itinerary for today. Not to mention pictures of her interacting with the crowds outside the museum.

The British kids yes,at the steps of the museum...And she was lead to them and mingled "spontaneously"......And ofcourse there were crowds,not huge,but crowds still...but she didn't pay any attention to them at all as she left the car!!No wave to people nor press...as was clearly seen in the coverage.

The first photo Duc linked to clearly shows her talking to adults and not just British children.

Please don't tell me I need to link you to every photo of Kate waving to crowds? I don't generally watch the videos because I find them to be boring, but you can clearly see her waving and interacting with people in many of the photos.

How do you tell if the kids are British or Dutch by a photo? The exhibition was on loan from the British Royal Collection and a British princess was coming to the museum which explains the Dutch and British mini flags. They are some kids with both flags. Quite possibly all these kids are Dutch.

Kate Middleton is zo gewoon gebleven|Telegraaf TV| Telegraaf.nl
Dutch people who had expected to just be able to take a quick pic were surprised that the duchess came up to them and shook hands and had a quick chat; "she has remained so normal" (which in dutch terms is a compliment )

The interviews are in dutch, but this shows that if definitely weren't just english people who she shook hands with..

In 1967, by birthright, Willem-Alexander became Knight in the Orden vom Goldenen Löwen des Hauses Nassau, which serves as the highest Luxembourgian State Order.

In 1992 Jean, Grand-Duke of Luxembourg, made a State Visit to the Netherlands. Willem-Alexander received the Herzoglich Nassauischer Militär- und Civil-Verdienst-Orden Adolphs von Nassau, the second highest Luxembourgian State Order.

In 2006 Henri, Grand-Duke of Luxembourg, made a State Visit to the Netherlands. Willem-Alexander received the Orden der Eichenen Krone, the third highest Luxembourgian State Order.

In 2012 Hereditary Grand-Duke Guillame married Countess Stéphanie de Lannoy. The (then) Prince of Orange did not wear his highest Luxembourgian decoration. He also did not wear his second highest Luxembourgian decoration. As only one off all royal guests he wore the third highest Luxembourgian decoration. Both at the pre-wedding event (picture) as well at the wedding itself (picture).

Why did the Prince, now the Head of the House Orange-Nassau, not wear the highest decoration, of which he is co-grandmaster? What would have been the reason behind that?

The King has a more modern snit now, in some his costumes. The pantalons are tighter tailored. Very good! Picture.
