And,on a lighter note,anyone who wondered who did the magnificent hairdo's of the Princess during the visit?The guy who did her hair while she was still living in NYC,she called him and he was to pleased that this happy customer of yesteryear thought of him still.Nice huh?
What a splashing success this trip was for TRH. Maxima really was a shining star. Her wardrobe was polished and so well put together. I did notice how posh her hair seemed this trip. Maybe her NY stylist should jet over the pond often? Its so nice to have royalty in the states. (twice in two weeks!)

Naming diversity and tolerance is one thing, naming slavery is another. I don't see how they 'cover' slavery by mentioning that NYC is diverse and tolerant. Neither do I understand why the foreign ministairy did not mention it this time in the speech of the PoO. Since they were celebrating that 400 years ago we started a colony there, it would have been relevant to remember that 400 years ago we introduced slavery there too, something which marked the USA for centuries and some could argue that it still does.
But you know you can't please everyone and it could've been an oversight.
I know it's hindsight but it would've been cool if they had visited Harlem....wasn't it named after the Dutch?
