I don't think Queen Maxima has been present at any of these "receiving official visitors at Nordeinde Palace". I wonder if it is because they are part of King Willem-Alexander's offical duties "at the office" and they are not state visits as far as I know.
It kind of makes sense to me that the King's day to day work/duties at the palace is clearly defined and his wife doesn't need to be there all the time.

Nothing wrong with the Queen not present.Many heads of state and government leaders hop in if Frans Timmermans (Dutch Foreign Minister)- invites them too..so/.That surprised me alltogether as Uganda is one of Africa's most ignorant and backward wateringholes...It's stance towards gays fe is that they are prosecuted and jailed,and killed...So what's that kid doing here in the first place..??

TM will host a dinner for Peres at Noordeinde Palace tomorrow evening and as it is a official visit.NOT a State Visit as NOS announced the other day...but then what do they know.......So there might be semi-gala tomorrow evening,no diadems.but the odd whopper here and there maybe.

The Beatrix stamps from 1980 seem more modern than these ones. I don't like the design, I would have preferred it to be a bit more abstract and in profile. It has been designed by Studio Job. Apparently the stamp is based on stamps of King Willem III from 1852.
