The Beatrixkapsel is an entity of its own!

The word 'Beatrixkapsel' made it even to the 'Van Dale' (most known dictionary of the dutch language). We, Belgians, got jealous and wanted our own word : the 'Fabiolakapsel'. :)

Well, it's good to see that the Beatrixkapsel keeps us busy. :)

I have some other of Beatrix for you (I'm soooo glad that she stopped wearing those sleeves, I remember we already found them quite weird back then, my mother and I):

Thanks for these pictures Maxie!
Off topic, but these pictures do prove what a beautiful woman she was (and is really). The pictures above must have been taken in the eighties of course, which means she was already 40-plus years old. People don't seem to typically appreciate how pretty Beatrix was.

I totally agree with you! She really was beautiful (still is) and her personality just made her better looking like it happens with Maxima:)

Awwww, I loved the 80's! The over-the-topness of the colors, hugeness of the hair and the shoulder pads, Anybody remember the fuscia lipstick? We glowed in the dark and could shelter whole families from the sun thanks to the shade created by our enormous locks!!! It's nice to see the royals have some hideous photos from that time period too.
I think Diana's prince of wales plaid suit and her tan suit are quite nice.
The Bellville Sassoon dressing gown dress was truly horrible. It came with matching silk trousers but she opted not to wear them, I can't imagine they would have made it look any worse

Yep, you're right Crisinaki, it would have been worse, then she would have looked like Hugh Hefner (not physically, just the pajamas--Hef wishes he were that pretty!).

We can't forget Diana's balloon skirt, worn twice (both times in France) in 1987.

Recently Princess Maxima wore such a skirt, and not to good effect. If these two beautiful princesses can't pull off this fashion, then there is no hope for us mere mortals to be able to do so either.

The shoulder pads helped balance out the titanic hair Or maybe that was the other way around!

This is just awful.... To me it has no "balloon" effect, it's just terribly wrinkled and bouncy looking in a bad way.
