She wore it to King Willem-Alexander's birthday celebrations in April but we didn't get a very good view of it then.

Maxima looks her usual stunning self! That was a real hit, imo. I love the gown, the jewels are great with it. Only: I prefer the ruby peacock tiara. But I won't be too picky today.

And I'm dying to see a better pic of Princess Victoria. What a treat to sea her in a tiara as well.

Robin Utrecht has a gallery of his pictures from the state banquet. It includes some good shots of Princess Viktoira.

Maxima looks wonderful in the Mellerio ruby tiara. One if her best :flowers:

Nice to see viktoria and Jamie. Viktoria looks lovely. :smile:

Daily fail needs to fire their editor. Or hire fact checker. I love the captioned photos, saying the royal couple with the president and his wife :bang: Simple fact check would tell you Sergio has been a widower since 2012. His daughter Laura has been acting first lady and often accompanies him abroad. He has two sons as well.

That is nice. I believe she spends a lot of her time in Italy, in/ close to Porto Ercole where her parents used to own a house. Her daughter Juliana supposedly also lives (or lived?) in Italy (Tuscany as well). Juliana and Bernhards's old villa L'Elefante Felice was sold to Belgian billionaire who had it demolished. And considering Princess Christina is the patron of a music concours which bears her name, it is fitting she attends the concert of violinist Janine Jansen at the Palazzo Colonna tonight.

I'm glad to have them as a king and queen. Beatrix was great and these two move forward smoothly.

Pricness Christina has a sassy walking stick ;).

Poor Mr. Valentino must have been horrified to see this altered version of his great dress but nice that he attended tonight's event as well. It seems that he came with the prince and princess of Colonna but I am not sure if the caption is correct. IIRC Princess/Queen Juliana was befriended members of the family but I may be mixing them up with the Corsini's.

Janine Jansen looks gracious as ever.

how was the original verson?

The top of Maxima's gown reminds me of what she wore to Frederick and Mary's wedding. The bottom looks different.

It actually is the same dress as the one she wore to the wedding. Only she added lace to the bottom of the dress after the wedding!

It was the dress she wore to prince Frederik and princess Mary's wedding. But she added lace after that wedding.

nice to see maxima recycling an old wedding guest dress from all the way back in 2004! i always like seeing old pieces reappearing with a few tweaks here and there to suit the new times.

Although I am not keen on such gowns, I have to say that Queen Maxima looked ravissant.
