According to the Dutch royalty and etiquette expert mrs. Reinildis van Ditshuyzen, who works for both the Dutch and the German television, there is a fine line and difference in 'levels' of etiquette.

Sometimes Princess Máxima looks 'unprincessy' but that often has a reason: visiting a juvenile girls penitentiary centre in Louboutins and Chanel and a big hat, is a bit overdressed, even for a Princess.

She explained that the Queen is always and ever The Queen. She will always and ever wear a hat, gloves, being surrounded by hofdames, uniformed aides and the whole tralala.

Princess Máxima and Princess Margriet (sister to the Queen) are one level behind. They are not always with a hat and gloves. Their entourage and escorte is smaller. The rules are not that tight.

The only other royal lady who, so now and then, has a public duty is Princess Laurentien. The public expectation of Princess Laurentien's appearance is different than that of the Queen or Princess Máxima.

Also on Princes' Day, a very formal day (State Opening of Parliament), you can clearly see that Princess Laurentien has (or takes) more freedom and dares to experiment. For Princess Máxima and Princess Margriet the unwritten expectation and rules are somewhat tighter. And for the Queen: the highest level, as usual.

So when you see a pregnant Princess Máxima, unflattering and with loose hair: this is still 'forgiven' to her. When she is the spouse to His Majesty The King, the expectations are much higher. And I'm sure that also a 40-years old Máxima will dress impeccable.

Thanks again for the info Henri M.! I am actually becoming your fan!

Is Máxima still wearing Graciela Naum's designs (wearing them BACK, i mean?)

My advice: ditch Eduard Vermeulen and leave his designs to the Belgians and get yourself a dutch designer, preferably Addy van den Krommenacker:

Addy van den Krommenacker - www.addyvandenkrommenacker.nl

from what I see his clothes are as good or better as those of Natan, so no need for Maxima to wear the same clothes as Mathilde, Claire, Maria-Theresa, Paola and Silvia any longer.

And if Maxima keeps insisting on Belgian designers, try Gerald Watelet for a change:

Site officiel de Gerald WATELET

Anyway: No more Natan please! We have seen each and every item of Vermeulens collection in 20 different colours by now and the balloonskirts that he is so fond of does not flatter anybody, neither do the shiny fabrics.

His stuff looks really nice & very elegent, suitable for a princess. When I first sew his designs, he remonded me very much of Valentino.

Barbara Tfank skirt suit 1 and skirt suit 2 both would look great with hats also would like to see them in a different color as well.

Oscar de la Renta lovely suit, very elegent I also see the color on Maxima. Jacket is casual yet ideal for working or going to meetings, I also like the belt with it. I love this whole outfit, especially with a hat.

Frans Molenaar

Polka dot trench - This is a fun coat yet it suits Maxima character & style. I think she can pull this of well with a nice dress underneath or with pants.
Navy coat - This is simple yet very elegant and would work nicely with a hat. The color is pretty for all seasons.
Hat - Big brim hats suit Maxima very well and this is quite pretty as in shape & style. I wouldn't mind if it was also in another color.

Natan
Not my favorite designer when it comes to quality & cuts but here are a few selections for Maxima since she is a big fan of his.

Jacket - This can be matched with anything, dressed up or down. I would love to see it over a simple white summer dress.
One shoulder cocktail dress - Not a bad dress at all, the idea is great & very Maxima IMO. It would be great if it was in another color as this one would wash her out.
Summer dress - I really like this color & style wise for Maxima, the ruffle on the side makes it pretty. A nice colored belt matched with it would look great

The suggestions by Frans Molenaar would all look great on Maxima, IMO. Although I personally prefer the second coat the first is very 'Maxima' so either coat and definitely the hat! I'm not a fan of Natan, but I think the jacket might be a nice option.

I do like the navy coat from Frans Molenaar. Very simple but most elegant. This coat can be dressed up very nicely with a lovely pearl or diamond brooch and possibly a contrasting hat. Quite a versatile item to have in any dress collection.

She'll be queen in a few months and hopefully this will give her a whole new mindset when it comes to her wardrobe. I can only hope.

I do not think she will change her way of dressing but I hope she will have her hair, also when it is worn loose whenever she appears in public to be done by a hairdresser.

On the day she becomes the queen I am hoping she and the 3 girls will wear Valentino, something subdued and elegant. Her vivacious personality and south american roots comes second on that day.
In case people object because of the cost it should be paid privately.
