Is this their first visit to Oman and UAE? I don't recall seeing any previous photos of them in either country. Was the reason for this visit stated on the website (I'm very sorry; I can't understand Dutch)?

I think we won´t see tiaras. The meeting between Maxima and Sheika Fatima will be private, perhaps we will see pics of her with Princess Haya.

Mademoiselle Lilo 01-13-2009 11:25 AM

how exciting, i just saw the pictures in PPE. i'm glad to see them in this visit - i was looking forward to it. hopefully we will see maxima with fatima and salma. i'm pretty sure there will be pictures of maxima with haya in dubai. it's also quite likely that the ladies met during their visit during the winter holidays, don't you think?

Marengo 01-15-2009 06:18 PM

I have read somewhere that HHRRHH were visiting Dutch friends who are living in Dubai at the moment, though they could have met princess Haya (or other royals) during their stay. Princess Haya used to be quite frequently in The Netherlands and often met Queen Beatrix at horsing events.

It seems they used the KBX to get to Oman.

sgl 01-15-2009 07:44 PM

Very nice photos! The prince and princess look wonderful (wish I looked as good after a long flight).

We will not get a picture of P.Maxima with the Sheikha's thats for sure but if we are lucky enough we might geta picture of Maxima with her delegation or with Sheikha Fatima's delegation at the meeting. We have seen that before ie, When Laura Bush visited Sheikha Fatima, a picture of Laura Bush at the event was released.

I suppose Maxima will be wearing pant suits the rest of the visit since I do not think it is the custom to wear skirts that show anything of the legs in the UAE.
