Over the last few years /decades

Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh 2011
Prince Albert II of Monaco 2011
King and Queen of Norway 2006
King Albert II and Queen Paola of Belgium 2007
Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands and the Prince Consort 1990
King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia of Spain 1986
Queen Margrethe II of Denmark and Prince Henrik 1978
King Baudouin of Belgium and Queen Fabiola 1968
Prince Rainier III and Princess Grace 1961

Not sure if there was ever a Grand-Ducal visit from Luxembourg!

The King and Queen will also visit a Jacobiite fort at Crosshaven in County Cork which was built to defend Cork harbour in 1690 from the advancing forces of William of Orange during the Jacobite/Williamite Wars which decimated Ireland.

The Palace remember an older, very older visit of the King Willem Alexander to Ireland!

"The three-day state visit to Ireland will start next Wednesday. More than forty years ago King Willem-Alexander visited Ireland once. In 1978 he was with his parents, Princess Beatrix and Prince Claus, brothers and cousin Carlos (son of Princess Irene) on vacation in the Irish village of Sneem"

Probalby it will not even be black tie but business suits for the mean and short gowns for the woman like at the recent SV from Sweden. So not much hope to see a tiara in Dublin this evening.

Fear not, the Max is not defeated so easily. Expect a brooch in the hair then

The dress code was business suit for the Swedish state visit, so. probably no tiara for Maxima either.

I am interested in this angle of an Orange monarch visiting Ireland given the historic background.

Today the dresscode is black tie and Queen maxima is wearing the emerald tiara. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/D84iJoGV4AAWDja.jpg:large


Can't understand why it is no black tie when it wasn't for the Swedes.

Not quite St Patricks Hall but the Dutch King and Queen managed to get our life long socialist President into black tie for the night!

Would you care to clarify ? The dress code is set by the host, not by the guests. Why would the same President of the Republic of Ireland treat the King of Sweden differently from the King of the Netherlands ? To make matters worse, the King of Sweden is more senior than King Willem Alexander.

I guess it's part of the behind the scene planning and the Netherlands being more insistent?! Although they weren't able to convince the French...

The latter has nothing to do with it,firstly,secondly it is entirely up to the two Heads of State,protocol and the Ministers involved in the organisation of a visit what's what and how and when and why.
