Just get in contact with the people
http://s180.photobucket.c...w¤t=4066933.jpg (This is one of my favourits, because you see these lots of women listening to her. I think it is a moment she is sharing her personal opinions as a woman and mother. She is not the head of state in this moment. Just my two cents worth http://royaldish.com/Smileys/royaldish/smiley.gif )
http://s180.photobucket.c...w¤t=4070106.jpg (You see that they don`t fear the contact with the people http://royaldish.com/Smileys/royaldish/jumping.gif )
When you are in Rome, do it like the Romans http://royaldish.com/Smileys/royaldish/tongue.gif
I think they had a great time there. Especially prince Clause was very interested in India and its development.
I`m soory that I can`show you pitures of their really last visit to India. That was at the milennium, when the whole family of Beatrix and Claus travelled to India, with all sisters of Beatrix and all cousins. I think that was a great party http://royaldish.com/Smileys/royaldish/champ.gif http://royaldish.com/Smileys/royaldish/bigsmile.gif But unfortunally it was a private visit. So no pictures http://royaldish.com/Smileys/royaldish/snare.gif
Beautiful pictures anirac.
I kind of miss Claus on Beatrix side...there were a gread couple :(
On Dutch television, in a programme called 'RTL Boulevard' it was said from reliable sources that the mother of Princess Máxima, Maria del Carmen Cerruti is babysitting the three girls at Villa De Eikenhorst during their parents' state visit.
India is well prepared for the visit:flowers:
For those who want to see real pictures of the visit:

Thanks for the links anirac and rockon210. I will surely check them out!
BTW, I love your avatar rockon210. I haven't seen that pic, it is very sweet.
Apparently the Royals and their party went by a KLM flight to New Delhi while the government airplane KBX, went there too, but empty. The reason is probably that the KBX would have to stop once or twice to refuel while KLM´s Boeing 747 doesn´t.
Now the visit really started http://royaldish.com/Smileys/royaldish/supercontent.gif http://royaldish.com/Smileys/royaldish/jumping.gif http://royaldish.com/Smileys/royaldish/supercontent.gif (and it must be very hot there. 35 degree http://royaldish.com/Smileys/royaldish/icecream.gif )

http://www.anp-photo.com/...Picture=6487887&pos=5 (It is funny to see how "tall" Beatrix is in India, even barfoot. She is just arround 1,64m / 5`5``. I think she will enjoy that the most Indian women are smaller http://royaldish.com/Smileys/royaldish/bigsmile.gif )
Beatrix received a gift (I`m sure she really admire it, it`s the right gift forher:flowers:)
I believe I don`t like HM`s outfit. Maxima recycled, but the hat is new and I love it http://royaldish.com/Smileys/royaldish/love.gif
Maxima looked lovely, her outfit was very pretty as well as the hat. Queen Beatrix also looked good, i thought her red outfit was very neat.
