Yes indeed, examples:


Presentation of the Army's regimental standards to the King


350 years Korps Mariniers


A ceremony with the Royal Netherlands Air Force

But it is worn very seldom anyway. Think the norwegian ro<al men only wear it for the opening of Parliament

The gifts chosen by the Queens are wonderful.

Are there any rules on when the collar can be worn? Or was he just joking?

Emperor Akihito wore the collar at the State Banquet, so I guess it was a joke.

The King of Sweden also once wore it while Harald wore the swedish collar of the order of Seraphim.
I thought the guest receiving this highest rank of the order of St. Olav could wear it with an own sash...?

Both King and Queen wore it for their blessing back in 1991.

MM is wearing the Order of Orange-Nassau. Is Märtha-Louise wearing the Order of the House of Orange? I am not familiar with the sash.

Yes indeed, Dame grootkruis in the Huisorde van Oranje.

The Order of Mette Marit (Dame grootkruis in de Orde van Oranje-Nassau) is by Royal Decree, signed by Queen Beatrix and countersigned by a minister.

The Order of Märtha Louise is by Hofbesluit (Court Decree) which was signed by Queen Beatrix in her own discretion. That is why it is called a House Order.

I’m waiting on baited breath for close ups of the tiaras. They’re magnificent!

Interesting that the Crown Princess and probably also the Crown Prince have not been upgraded to the Order of the Dutch Lion as this one was given to the danish Crown Prince and Crown Princess by King Willem-Alexander.

Exquisit! I love all the gowns of the royal ladies. I´m happy Queen Sonja finally wears her "80th birthday dress" one more time. It´s only a pity the CPcess doesn´t wear the trimmed down version of Queen Maud´s pearl tiara she wore at the swedish CPcesses wedding - it would have been perfect to match this evenings gown and earings!
And, of course, I miss Haakon!

That´s true. But I think the order of the House of Orange-Nassau is higher ranking than ML´s dutch House order, right? It is the same Charles and Diana wore at Queen Beatrix´s state visit to the UK back in 1982.

That's what Harald told Willem-Alexander when he asked 'when does one wear it?' Nonetheless, Willem-Alexander thanked him for this -'useless' (literally)- present.

My guess is that Märtha Louise's presence is very much related to her being close friends with the Dutch royal family (she also got a personal present: a clock). Ari's only royal order was a Dutch one... given by queen Beatrix on her state visit to Norway.

The Order of Orange-Nassau is indeed higher ranking than Märtha Louise's house order (which is the same princess Laurentien of the Netherlands has).

I am not sure what Charles and Diana wore at the state visit in 1982 but Charles wore the Order of the Crown (which is a different one) at Willem-Alexander's inauguration as king. Ari Behn had a lower rank in this same order. It's the order that Willem-Alexander typically hands out to spouses of heads of state (including queen Letizia; but also non-royal spouses) or 'lower ranking' prince(sse)s such as Märtha Louise (for example: prince Joachim and princess Marie).

Queen Sonja still adheres morning-, midday- and evening ensembles during a State Visit. I like that.

Yes, that was exeptional. No any other crown princely couple has been given the highest State Order. Why Frederik and Mary got it: litterally no idea.

Sorry but when i look at Sonja it hurt's my in my eyes. The neon yellow/green dress and Jewels don't go well with the orange&blue dutch Order she had to wear.
