Beautiful photos!
I love Maxima's coat!
Mathilde looks nice, too! It's great to see the couples together!
They always seems to be quite relaxed and happy when the Dutch and the Belgian Crownprincely Couples meet.

I must say for the first time, I do not like the coat that Mathilde is wearing. It's too busy and stiff looking as well as the lace, high neck, thing she is wearing underneath it. And then with black stockings and grey shoes, she reminds me of Minnie Mouse. I usually love what she wears, but not today.
Maxima looks nice, I just wish she would tidy up her hair a bit. Always looks as if she is rushed out the door with her hair brush in hand and never really finishes the job.
The men look handsome as usual.
Just a question: is the weather really that cold over there right now? I would love to have it that cold here in California. Right now, it's in the 80's, hot and dry, and we must not forget windy. Ugh!

It was a most sunny and gentle dreamy autumn day with a golden sun, not only in The Hague but in the entire Netherlands.

Here you see the former Palace of Prince Maurits of Nassau-Siegen, the Mauritshuis, which is renowned for its fabulous collection of Dutch and Flemish masters and was visited by the Prince of Orange, Princess Máxima and their guests the Duke and Duchess of Brabant.

True Henri, I could even walk around in just a t-shirt today without being cold...

I think I will visit the exposition soon, with a friend of mine who lives in The Hague, it seems interesting.


Now about the couples: the two husbands seem to stay in the background and let the ladies lead :). Nice to see how comfortable they are together, it is always nice to see them with each other.

I actually liked Maxima's hair, but I wish Willem-Alexander could use a new haircut, the present one doesn't really flatter him.
