‘No Sleep’ and George Clooney: Dutch Royals Flock To Theatres Three Days In A Row
The Dutch theatres were a popular desitation for their country’s royals this week. Last night Princess Beatrix visited the opening night of the Holland Dance Festival in The Hague. The former monarch was accompanied by her youngest son Constantijn and his wife Laurentien, who conveniently are living in The Hague themselves. Princess Laurentien repeated a Missoni dress from 2013. Princess Beatrix wore a black outfit and a brooch from the Indonesian gold & diamond demi-parure.

A day earlier Dutch Queen Máxima visited the opening film of the International Rotterdam Film Festival (IRFF). The Queen arrived at movie theatre De Doelen in a 70s-inspired pant suit by Etro. The Opening film of this 45th edition of the IIRC was the movie ‘No Sleep’, based on the novel of Willem Frederik Hermans. According to the local press -who labelled the outfit euphemistically as ‘daring’- you can dress like a queen for the price of € 1225,-.
