Maxima: nice dress, nice coat, nice accessories. I think I would have liked to have seen a more colorful coat with the dress though, it's all so beige! Hate the hat, which I think looks like crumpled paper - odd and unflattering.

Laurentien looks really lovely in that deep blue, and a nice style too!

Aging?Nah,remember HM had total knee surgery,and HRH is recovering from a recent hernia,both are not age related....You can even obtain it from attacking your abs,yes,even at your age,you'd be surprised,so take care with attacking them,they might get back at you .....it happened to others...

My favorite was by far Princess Margriets. Beatrix, CP Maxima and P Larentien looked nice as well. Didnt care her Maximas hat and hairdo though.

As for Maxima, the jacket did not go with the dress, and the dress did not go with the jacket. Her hat only looked good on her profile. From the front, it looked as if she had a bunch of material wrapped around in a swirl, and then plopped on her head.
As for Margeriet, I liked the blue dress, but the yellow part did nothing to flatter her or her dress. But I did like the color combination.
I couldn't agree with you more! I was really disappointed with Maxima, she usually never lets us Royal watchers down!!!

Oh but she didn't in my eyes,thanks to the new whopper of a diamond brooch she was wearing.

Maximas dress looked quite nice (at least from what was visible underneath that much too small jacket) but the collapsed Meringue on her head does not deserve the description "hat"
HM's dress looks like she salvaged some curtain fabric, and she might have been able to smuggle a whole football team underneath it into the building.
Her hat I insist is the same she always wears, she only spray paints them to match her clothes.
I loved Laurentiens dress but I am not sold on the sleeves, find the colour too off.

Tan? I think Jini asked about the brooch (jewel) and not about the jacket...
However you are right it is not the same jacket

Maxima wore a lovely outfit except for her hat. Laurentien looked lovely to, loved her jewels. As for the Queen, no comment.

I think Laurentien looked every inch a princess today! Maxima and Margriet both looked very elegant as well.

Maximas brooch is definately NOT the same brooch she wore for the baptism. That one was a diamond bow with the topaz or citrine tear drop hanging down from the center .
The brooch worn today has a whopper of a central colored stone, round cut, surrounded with diamonds, with 3 colored tear drop stones hanging from diamonds decending from the central stone.

brooch

Also a citrine, set in diamonds. A rather 19th centrury design. A few more years and she'll have a nice demi-parure of citrines and diamonds. Perfect!

Is there a video? I like Maxima's outfit but the hat. I thought the hat look a little too overwhelming.
