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:

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.

On welcoming HM The Sultan at the theater he made a compliment of her dress,to which Queen Beatrix replied;"It's my Oriental display"...!...LOL!!

tiaras and the men wearing business suits looks like a strange combination

All details,including what to wear where is meticulously calculated way in advance with both parties for these sort of visits,always.So,it was planned and the Sultana knew.She had some major rocks dangling too though...

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
