Indeed she did need a hat pin!

I am struck by the genuine warmth between W-A and HGD Guillaume. There is quite an age difference between them but they appear to be quite close.

The HGD has started representing his country & family at (royal) events from a young age, shortly after his father succeeded in 1999. He must have attended much of these private gatherings of the various crown princes as well. Of course he is also the godfather of the King's youngest daughter, Pss Ariane.

The royal ladies looks lovely. Am I mistaken or didn't Maxima wear that gown to her 40th birthday gala? Looks familiar.

this state visit has been so fun to watch. it is obvious that these two families share more than just a state visit here - i see real friendship and genuine pleasure in being together. the picture of maria teresa and maxima with their arms around each other on the stair case photo opp speaks volumes, as do the faces of the HGD couple when greeting WA and maxima at the airport.

and the tiaras! don't even get me started - such a pleasure seeing maxima with the stuart tiara, her mustard dress was stunning too.

total winner visit in my opinion.

Oh man, not Stephanie wearing another dress previously worn by Maria Teresa. It's a nice dress, but come on.

From the videos it seems that they are having a great time together.

In the video the king refers to the past and to family ties, but he says it is more important to look ahead to the future. The reporter asked the Queen if this visit was a special occassion which meant that the house diamonds were used. To which the Queen replied: "No, not really" after which she started talking immidiately about the content of the visit, obviously not wanting to discuss such a flimsy/private topic for the camera.

Queen Maxima took her most trusted lady-in-waiting along: Ottoline Antoinette (Lieke) Gaarlandt-van Voorst van Beest. She was attached to Maxima from 2001 onwards and is the only one that stayed after the king's enthronement. She was a teacher French in the past, which comes in handy during this visit perhaps.

Thanks for the info on the LIW, Marengo! it's particularly interesting to learn about the royals' entourage - where would they be without them, a whole team to make them shine and feed them with information and tips... It would come in handy for all of us.

The Dutch nobles have such curious names, often with negative sounding parts in it, like Schimmel or Beest...

Ottoline Antoinette Gaarlandt - Van Voorst van Beest herself is no noble but a patrician: her father Paul van Voorst van Beest was a patrician (enlisted in Nederland's Patriciaat, the "Blue Book").

Her mother jonkvrouw Alexandrine Antoinette van Heurn was a noble (enlisted in Nederland's Adelsboek, the "Red Book"). Van Heurn (Van Huerne) is an ennobled illegitimate branch of the Counts Van Horne.

Queen Máxima has "only" 3 Hofdames, under supervision of the Grootmeesteres as she is no reigning Queen, which requires less assistance from these ladies. (Queen Beatrix had 7 Hofdames).

Picture:

Marie-Louise ("Bibi") barones van Zuylen van Nijevelt - Den Beer Poortugael, Grootmeesteres
Anna-Magdalena ("Annemijn") Crince le Roy - Van Munster van Heuven, Hofdame
Queen Máxima
Antoinette Ottoline ("Lieke") Gaarlandt - Van Voorst van Beest, Hofdame
Joséphine Maria ("Pien") van Karnebeek - Thijssen, Hofdame

At 3.46 in the second video, is W-A having a go at the woman showing them around? Something about you wanted it on the list and we didn’t. If so, a bit unfortunate with all the cameras.

From the intonation I suspect he is either quoting something or joking. The lady is Lydie Polfert, Luxembourg's foreign minister. Apart from the odd paparazzi the King is not known for 'having a go' at anybody.
