It seems to me that the Dutch have more state visits than other countries? Or am I mistaken?

HM looks well, I don´t dislike her outfit and it looks very regal, the furs et all. I was wondering, does she receive all foreign guests in Rotterdam these days? As Airbase Valkenburg has been closed (much to my regret, have even signed a protest petition against it, as did many others in Valkenburg and Rijnsburg/Katwijk).

Hopefully we will see some impressive tiara´s tonoght, preferably not hidden in the fluffy coiffures of HM and Princess Margriet. But it is more likely that HM will wear the eternal floral tiara again. Margriet and Maxima will use something modest too probably, esp. as this is an incoming state visit from a republic.

Im pretty sure that the Cp couple will attened the gala :smile:

The Queen looks good & well. Her outfit is "okay" i think the fur is abit to much also not liking the color of it against her lovely yellow outfit. Is it a custom for the CP couple not to the attened arriving ceremony? because not on this nor the jordanian state visit were they there.

During the Jordanian visit Alex and Máxima were touring Australia & New Zealand.HM welcomes her guests for a State Visit alone,but like today,TRH attend the private lunch right after.

The queen looks very regal! I like the color choice of her outfit as the skirt seems to compliment the German flag nicely! Wish though we could see more of the outfit as the fur is blocking the top part.

royalgertjan 10-08-2007 02:52 PM

Queen B looks elegant! I hope to see glitter and glamour tonight!
