A faux pas for the Household organisation!

maybe on their own request but if it was an accident it would be typical Dutch, an egalitarian society.

Both the Queen's outifit and Maxima's outfit look alike! Well, in the fabric.
I wish I could understand Dutch! I'd LOVE to be able to hear Maxima give her speech.

formality
 
Since this is something in the spirit of the wonderful (late) prince Claus, a strictly formal event would not be appropriate. It's about substance, not about standing up when royalty arrives. No faux pas at all imho.

Duke of Marmalade 06-22-2007 11:33 AM

WHOOAAA Nice neckline ;) Maxima is soooo JUST DO IT! Simply jumps back into her role after giving birth and a maternity break and goes on with her job, doing speeches and events of all kind. If her hair is messy from time to time, so what? That's just her and I admire her for it.

carlota 06-22-2007 11:33 AM

i agree rachel. such a shame there wasn't a video for the speech she gave in london in english!

it's nice to see maxima back in such a busy schedule again: the other day in london, two events in the netherlands and a photoshoot for alexia's birthday!

Queen & Maxima in similar color outfits. Maxima seems to be glowing, great to see her back alongside the queen.

Indeed. I think that when HM was halfway the aisle, the audience suddenly realized her arrival and stumbled up to show respect.

Recently have left the Household Organisation:
- mr. G.H.A. (Gilbert) Monod de Froideville, Master of the Ceremonies to Her Majesty The Queen;
- mrs. E.A.S. (Sophie) Crena de Iongh-den Beer Poortugael, chef de bureau for the Court Marshal to Her Majesty The Queen.
Maybe the new functionaries have not yet 'it' in the fingers.

This 'problem' can easily be solved: a functionary moves forward and says: "Dames en heren: de Koningin!" ("Ladies and gentlemen: the Queen!") and all raise. It simply must have been overlooked because this is very 'un-Beatrix' who is very precize on this sort of things.

Maxima looks wonderful! Is there a video of her speech?

Regina 06-22-2007 05:55 PM

Máxima is perfect in this outfit. Sometimes I don't like the way she dresses (too exuberant) but these last outfits were all gorgeous (imo).
Keep the good work, Maxima!

saphills 06-22-2007 06:20 PM

She looks great, I'm glad to see her back to work.

I agree on the egalitarianism...but come on guys, it was the Queen!! Maybe Máxima and WA still give the impression of a less-formal thing because they're still a) young and b) Princes. But if Beatrix came around, boy I would stand up. Even if she's not MY Queen!
