Because the most important person always arrives last :) This is also the reason why Laurentien and Margriet were already there when the carriage that carried Beatrix, Maxima and Willem Alexander arrived :)

Thanks for the clarification!
In my country a mother-in-law should never be behind a daughter-in-law. That is why seeing Crown Princess Maxima to be the first to get out the carriage seemed odd to me. Well, different countries has got different traditions.

You will see similar in Denmark for the opening of the Parliament :)
First Benedikte arrives, then Joachim and Marie, after that Frederik and Mary and last but not least the Queen and Prince Henrik :)

I was able to see most of Prinsjesdag on television as I was waiting the whole day for the UPC people to drop by (sigh).
Anyway, I am happy that the weather was better than the last days.
the guy who was throwing the cadle holder has been arrested, and will be charged with more than just 'disturbance of public order', this to avoid such things to happen each and every year. I am sure we will hear more about the guy in the next days (you can always count on the Telegraaf for that). And after Queensday attack last year, I am sure he can count on very little sympathy.

Princess Máxima seems to be wearing a new brooch, and then dress she is wearing might be another Jan Tamineau (as it reminds me of last years dress, due to the flowers added to it). But it is just a wild guess.
Nice to see that Laurentien has toned down her style in the last years.

Thank you for all the nice pictures.

The flower display next to the Queen while she was reading the speech was very nice and went nice with HM's outfit.

The Queen's expression's in the video are priceless. I can see why she was called "Princess Smiley" in her younger days.

newspaper de telegraaf has more information on the man who was throwing the candle holder to the golden carriage:

'Dood moeder Erwin schuld koningin' - Binnenland | Het laatste nieuws uit Nederland leest u op Telegraaf.nl [binnenland]

His name is Erwin L. He claims that prince Bernhard is responsible for the death of his grandfather in WWII. And somehow that makes the RF also responsible for the suicide of his mother in 2008. His mother put gasoline over herself and her car and set it on fire. This happened in 2008 in Vrenden, Germany. She had to sell her farm and could not cope with it.

Erwin L. also contacted the police 4 times in 2009 and claimed that he was responsible fort he Queensday attack, when Karst T. killed 10 people. When he threw the candle holder, he screamed that it was a hand grenade.

Erwin is a member of 'Pro Republica'. On Hyves (Dutch online social network page), he insulted the Queen, prince Bernhard, WA, Máxima and several anscestors of the RF. The page has been blocked.

Until recently he lived in Meddo, until he moved to a psychiatric clinic in Warnsveld, around christmas 2009, as he was stalking a girl. Due to this he became unemployed and moved to Lichtenvoorde. Acvcording to friends he suffers from a narcistic personality disorder, but he refused to do anything about it. An acquaintance from Lichtevoorde he is a 'ticking time bomb'. His family urged the police to do something about it, but as he didn't commit any serious crimes the police was not able to do anything.

And unsurprisingly, Mr. Wilders (leader of the extreme right party) is angry at the speech of the Queen:

Quote:
Wilders angry at political tint to queen's speech

Wednesday 22 September 2010
Geert Wilders, leader of the anti-Islam PVV, feels his party came under attack by references to the need for 'stable government' in the queen's speech, the Telegraaf reports on Wednesday.

Wilders described the speech, in which the queen said stable government was necessary for economic recovery, as a 'total nothing'. And he accused prime minister Jan Peter Balkenende, who writes the speech for the monarch, of 'rabble rousing'.

Looking at her you can often still see the spontanious little girl that never was lost,with an enormous amount of joy and excitement present.
She still has the same laughter in abundance and sparkling eyes full of fun.
