Anyone can be invited by a member of Parliament to attend the ceremony. It is also not true that the Opening of the Parliament is for parliamentarians only. In all monarchies you can see that the who-is-who from the military, the judiciary, the corps ddiplomatique, the nobility, etc. attend this sort of ceremonies. Often members of Parliament invite the spouse or the children to attend. I think that is a healthy sign that the so called "peoples' representative" indeed is accessible for all people.

Well, at least with the compulsory black for the ladies, they do not have to change clothes because of the death of the Kings aunt.

I find it very curious how Prince Daniel is always shoved aside when his wife is not there. If being in the line of succession is a prerequisite, will we see Daniel walking behind Prince Nicholas when his wife is absent? He is and will be a core member of the RF while the others are not. In my own country it would have been unthinkable that Princess Máxima would have walked behind Friso and Constantijn or in Belgium Princess Mathilde behind Astrid and Laurent. During the maternity leaves of CPss Beatrix, the late Prince Claus always came immidiately after his parents-in-law and before the rest of the family, f.e. during the state openings of parlament in 1968 and 1969.

During the evening the Queen seems to be wearing something that could have been made by Natan, though of better quality. Princess Madeleine looks pretty and relaxed but the outfit and shoes are quite out there.

The outfits during the day didn't seem to memorble. I am surprised to say this but for once I do think that Princess Sofia was the best dressed. I am longing for a proper hat on all ladies, though the people who are sitting behind them will be grateful to them for not doing so.

Is there a reason why the ladies always wear black and white during the opening of parliament?
