Dutch State Visits (Before 2003)
The first Dutch state visit that has its own thread in this forum dates from 2003. All hestate viits afterwars got seperate threads. We ca use this thread to post pitures, clips etc. of older state visits.
Here a video of the Dutch state visit to Norway in 1986:

A video of half an hour about the foreign visits that the Queen made during her reign:
NOS Nieuws - NOS 30 jaar Beatrix: de reizen
Among them the state visits to Luxembourg and Belgium (1981), Germany, UK, US (1982), an the two that are considered the most impressve/important/sensitive: Indonesia (1995) an Israel (1995).
They we even able to get Bill Clinton to say a few words about the Queen.
They also mention a state visit to Surinam, but considering he election results there a state visit during the Queen's reign is unlikely.

Queen Beatrix and Prince Claus's State Visit to the United Kingdom; 1982
Did Queen Beatrix host a banquet during her trip to Britain in 1982? And if so, where was it held? I believe that Queen Elizabeth II's state banquet for Queen Beatrix was held at Hampton Court.
I have no idea where the banquets were held, but here a short clip of the state visit:
Staatsbezoek aan Groot-Brittannië, 1982 - YouTube
I believe the return dinner was when Queen Beatrix was wearing the blue dress and Queen Emma's tiara, there is a large gobelin in the background, maybe you/somebody else recognises it?
Thank you for your replies.:flowers: In that case, the Hampton Court visit was the one in which the Royal party is standing in front of the tapestry for photographs.
Princess/ Queen Juliana Indonesian State visits
I am a new user to this site.
I have a query about Princess/ Queen Juliana, and I am wondering if anyone can list the state visits she made Indonesia, both as Princess and as Queen?
Thanks in Advance
She only paid one state visit to Indonesia, which was in 1971.
A rather extensive video on youtube:
She never visited the then Dutch Indies as crown princess. There was some talk of it in the thirties IIRC but the death of Q. Astrid of neighbouring Belgium made Q. Wilhelmina's opposition against such a voyage even stronger. After Juliana's marriage travel was difficult due to her pregnancies, WWII and the war of Independance.
I do believe that it was a great wish of Juliana to visit Indonesia and she especially liked the Borobudur. There she made the wish that the press wouldn't make it impossible for her to enjoy the visit.
After her abdication, from 26 may to 10 june 1982, she and her husband paid a private visit to Indonesia. The trip lasted 3 weeks and they were able to see most of the important islands. They were guests of president Suharto, who invited them.

Spanish State Visit to the Netherlands, 1980 | The Royal Watcher
A broadcast of 49 minutes by Polygoon of the State Visit of Queen Juliana and Prince Bernhard to Indonesia in 1971, only 22 years after the country became independent. It may explain the great crowds. The moment where Queen Juliana makes a wish at the Borobudur temple is perhaps best known in The Netherlands. Queen Juliana had long wanted to go to Indonesia. In the 30-ties there were plans made by Governor General Jhr. Mr. Bonifacius de Jonge but they were supposedly vetoed by Queen Wilhelmina who did not want her daughter and only heiress to take any risks.
I notice there was still an official farewell ceremony, where Crown Princess Beatrix and Prince Clause accompanied them to the airport to wish them a good trip.

Good to see the 1980s fashion being left firmly in our past!
