An aide-de-camp is an officer from the armed forces who is detached to the Military House of Her Majesty The Queen. They are no 'guard' for her but do escort her and also form the visible part of the 'royal entourage'. They are recognizable to the golden or silver 'ropes' they wear as a distinction mark of their position.

The Prince of Orange is an 'Aide-de-Camp Extraordinary to The Queen', you can see these golden embroidered 'ropes' on his uniform as well:
http://www.seegerpress-online.de/top...ER00167198.jpg

According to the Almanach of State, The Queen has quite a few aide-de-camps:

1x Aide-de-Camp General, Chief of the Military House of Her Majesty The Queen:
Lieutenant-General of the Cavalry, A.G.J.M. Blomjous (Royal Army)

10x Aide-de-Camp:
Captain-Lieutenant-at-Sea J.P.D. van Zaalen (Royal Navy)
Captain-Lieutenant-at-Sea A.S. de Kleijn (Royal Navy)
Colonel N. Ruijgrok-Gillebaard (Military Communications Services)
Lieutenant-Colonel J.A. Dijkstra (Marines Corps)
Lieutenant-Colonel J. van Leeuwen (Royal Air Force)
Lieutenant-Colonel C.A.J. ten Anscher (Military Administration)
Lieutenant-Colonel W.A. Baron (Military Judiciary)
Lieutenant-Colonel R.J.F. Bergman (Military Psychological and Social Services)
Lieutenant-Colonel C.L.A.N. van Tartwijk (Royal Air Force)
Captain B. van den Berg (Military Logistic Services)

3x Ordonnance Officer of Her Majesty The Queen:
Commissioner P.M. Wiersinga (National Police)
First Lieutenant G.A. Hermkens (Royal Air Force)
Lieutenant-at-Sea First Class F.B.H. Mulder (Royal Navy)

These Aide-de-Camps are detached for a few years. After then they become 'Aide-de-Camp Extraordinary' and can still be asked to assist on larger events at the Palace, like weddings, funerals, etc.

Wow! A day of rest really has done her well, the Princess looks amazing IMO. The jewels do not hurt either, is she wearing two new diamond brooches on her dress or are they fake?

The homepage of the Dutch Royal House says it’s a dinner offered by the governor of New South Wales. So even if it looks like a lunch to you I stick to the official description.

What a fantastic dress for Máxima! She looks stunning! She looked much more relaxed today!
And finally we saw a nice hat on her

About the news that CP Mary is pregnant as well as Maxima - from:
http://www.int.iol.co.za/index.php?s...1945540133B223


"Dutch royals visiting Australia said the Danish couple's news made them part of a royal baby boom in Europe, AAP reported.

The Prince of Orange, Willem-Alexander, said he and his wife, Princess Maxima, were expecting their second child in April 2007.

Spain's Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia were also expecting their second child next May, Willem-Alexander said.

"We congratulate her tremendously, and her husband as well," Willem-Alexander said of the couple's news."

Thanks for all the pictures. That is one sexy dress Máxima is wearing! Her coiffure and jewels are just beautiful. I really like her hat from the day event, it's just beautiful. All in all it's good to see her happy and well-rested.
