Whether it is a matter of insistence or not, the Irish have been very inconsistent lately: white tie for Queen Elizabeth II (different president though, so I will take it as an excuse), black tie for King Willem Alexander, and business suit for King Carl XVI Gustaf. An outside observer may be tempted to think that some Heads of State are accorded higher deference than others, which would be very disrespectful.

Ah,them,with that selfish little critter for a former president,he left before the state dinner was ended,,arrogance a la pays I'd say.

But here it is another matter,maybe Mrs. Higgins thought her dress needed some airing too,( and it becomes her) - and hoped for Mxima to air a nice one of her plus a bauble or two who knows...

There's always a little to and fro about what and which colours the Ladies involved wear during preparations of State Visits.Funny to see what people think/believe of and what they see...:)..

It was also black tie for Queen Elizabeth. The white tie was when the President of ireland paid a State Visit to the UK.

But i also think they should have the same dresscode for all State Banquet and nonce black tie and once business suits and short gowns.

This is the 1st State Visit by the Dutch King and Queen,whilst their Swedish counterparts were on a second State Visit and had the Black Tie Gala back in 1998.

Also bear in mind that the current President of Ireland is very different in his presidency and very unlike the previous two Mary's who enjoyed displaying a bit of pomp at State Visits and always hosted them at Dublin Castle.Mr Higgins seems to enjoy a more relaxed version and hosts them at the homely Aras rather than the sumptuous setting of Dublin castle.

Sorry but for mte this is no argument that it weas the second State Visit by the swedish Royal Couple. In other countreies it also the same dresscode. And i don't understand that he changes it for State Visits who take place within a few weeks.

The norm here was always been black Tie and and Gala banquet at Dublin Castle why the Swedish King and Queen got business suits on their State second visit I have no idea but I'm not gonna dwell on it.

Nice to see Maxima wearing green - it seems that Ireland is also having its fair share of wet and windy weather like we've been having here in London!

The dress code at the state dinner at ras an Uachtarin was business suit also at the state visit of H.E. Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, President of the Republic Croatia. Not only at the state visit of the king and queen of Sweden.

I am absolutely loving Queen Maxima's green gown. She looks fabulous and the Emerald jewels are not overstated with it. This Emerald set is just lovely I have always admired it. A gift from Queen Emma to her daughter Queen Wilhelmina 1899. Made by Eduard Schurmann & Co. In Frankfurt. The Emeralds were said to have been brought to the Netherlands by Queen Wilhelmina of Prussia, wife of Prince Willem V of Orange - Nassau in the 18th century. The original settings have since been changed.

Mrs Higgins looks very nice in the lacy blue dress as well.

In the second photo there is a man with a sword and another man with a golden stick & a crown on top. Does anybody know what they are symbolizing?
