this is a rough translation of the programme (any help is kindly would be highly appreciated...) :

November 1
The President & his wife will be received by HM The Queen & HRH the Prince of Orange at Schipol Airport. At night, there will be a state banquet at Noordeinde Palace.

On the first day, President Putin and his wife will also lay a wreath by the National Monument on the Dam in Amsterdam. Furthermore the President has a round-table discussion with the captains or industry in the official residence of the mayor of Amsterdam. Then, a visit at the house of Czar Godfather the Large in Zaandam.

The house of Tsar Peter the Great, I think. ;)

President Putin has been interviewed by the Dutch TV journalists. Has the interview been already aired in the Netherlands?

Ropura, the Royal Family is keeping you busy these days, with weddings and state visits. Good luck tomorrow with your photography. As usual, I am sure you will get some wonderful pictures.:)

I do not believe Maxima will be present at the airport, the official announcement says nothing about it. I do expect her for the state dinner btw, hopefully with Pieter and Margriet. I do not expect Laurentien and Constantijn to attend, if they do it will be their first state dinner.

BTW the people in Zaandam have to stay inside their houses today (between certain hours) and are not allowed to open their windows/ stand on balcony's etc: security measures.

That's funny! Yes, VIP visits are always fun, until they come to your neighbourhood & close streets, disrupt traffic, etc.;)

Here are a few more from ANP

Maxima looks very nice! I think she should do her hair like this more often.

HMQueenElizabethII 11-01-2005 03:56 PM

So no Tiara?It's such a pity!But Maxima looks lovely and happily in a lovely smile as well.

Princess Maxima 11-01-2005 04:15 PM
