I´m a bit surprised about these brief introductory visits as I only knew these from republican heads of state before...?! As far as I know Kings and Queens "introduced" themselves, especially to their fellow counterparts from abroad, with full state visits. Is this a new kind of custom, due to the financial crisis or a dutch habit?

Full State Visits at present to the countries scheduled in the series of introductory visits are not opportune as the relations are more then cordial,they are excellent but mostly because the last State Vists haven't been that long ago...So,it would be a waste of time and money to put it bluntly...These short visits from the shortest Reignig to longer Reigning collegues are a good and modern way to introduce in new roles.:smile:

Did the King fly the plane himself again?
I do like it when he does. He obviously likes to fly and nowadays these must the the only opportunities he has to do so. :D

Queen Máxima received the Grandcross in the Order of St. Olaf today from King Harald.
King Willem-Alexander already received it in 1996.

Quite a few lovely pictures from today's visit. Disappointing no hats, any reason for that?
I thought all ladies looked lovely. Queen Sonja's dress was really pretty.
