wow. maxima looks amazing in green! i love that dress. so regal, yet original. i think she thought brunei was a perfect opportunity to try out another colour, as the ladies are always dressed in bright, colourful dresses.

does anyone know who the little girl in the pictures of the tea reception is?

Good to see that Martine van Loon-Labouchere is accompanying the royals.

The green outfit of Princess Máxima is simular to one that was worn by princess Claire at the pre wedding party of HGD Guillaume. The NOS news says that the princess selected a longer skirt because Brunei is an Islamic country.

It is the Wurttemberg tiara she wore on her wedding-day.

During a speech at the reception of the Dutch community in Brunei HM had to fight her tears,as just before her speech she spoke with parents of a 7 year old girl who had drowned on New years day.It was a moving speech in which HM expressed her gratitude that all had come inspite of the tragedy that recently touched them in their heartsHM said she appriciated their presence all the more because of it.She expressed her admiration for the solidarity and the caring she had witnessed and she stressed to maintain that and to hold eachother:" As that is so important".
During loud cheers in honour to HM many had tears in their eyes.

The little girl was cremated only last friday.

No question as to what HM must have been thinking,if anyone,it is she who has the greatest empathy.She is SO admirable,can't say it enough!

Why not? HM will be able to share the grief as her own son, Prince Friso is still struggling for his life. She will understand how the parent felt.

HM met the Dutch community and must have heard shortly before what happened to that family,I am sure she knew!...And then HM is as human and emphatetic as one can be and WANTS to meet these berieved people,knowing all to well the meaning of the word LOSS!..It deserves our respect that HM goes to great lenght to comfort the berieved family and expresses her gratefullness for solidarity among those close to the couple.

HM with the aquamarine parure that was a present to her mother from her parents,I love it that HM uses the aquamarine pendant as she does.

Máxima's tiara in the style and fashion as it was while HM used it at her Inthronisation on april 30th 1980.The Princess wears the tiara like this for the first time.:smile:

Marengo 01-22-2013 11:44 AM

Wow, I didn't expect any tiaras at the return dinner, neither did the sultana as we can see :). Nice to see Máxima wearing the pearl buttons for the first time. Ithink she is using another dress from a previous Prinsjesdag (2007), though with a different jacket. Máxima wears the same pearl leaf brooch as was worn at yesterday's banquet by the Queen.

The Sultana did wear a tiara on the first day,for the return ...dunno..
Dress codes are always known in advance so it maybe is a personal choice
