State Visit from Singapore to The Netherlands: November 21-22, 2018


If you have answers, please help by responding to the unanswered posts.
It must have been cooooooold on that windy Dam Square. Mr Husband Singapore quickly put on an ice cap... Nice to see the ceremonial guards from the Regiment Infantry Johan Willem Friso with their blue uniforms. It will have been their turn this time. Then we see the Guards' Regiment Fuseliers Princess Irene in their red tenues, then it is the Guards ' Regiment Limburgse Jagers in their green uniforms, then it is one of the Hussars' regiments, then it is a detachement from the Royal Navy, etc. there will be a sort of schedule.

What is the Order the Chef of the Military House (Rear Admiral Ludger Brummelaar) is wearing? The Swedish Order of the Polar Star?

Picture doesn't work but if he is the ione behind the King it looks like the luxemburgian Order of Adolphe.


This is the picture: https://ssl.c.photoshelter.com/img-...0000CZQ24OY3n5Q/statasbeozke20181121-2962.jpg


Indeed most likely the Military Order of Adolphe de Nassau, I can see the breast star with the crossed swords on the uniform: see picture. (This is an antique one from a collectioneur of militaria).


The other officer with the orange sash is the parade commander in the uniform of the Regiment Infantry Johan Willem Friso.

The queen is not wearing any orders at the State Banquet?
 
What a pity that there was no group photo with Princess Beatrix, Prince Constantijn, Princess Laurentien and Princess Margriet.

No orders for Princess Beatrix either ! Even if Queen Máxima and Princess Beatrix didn’t get any Singaporean decorations, shouldn’t they have worn their highest Dutch order ?

No any lady, besides the President of Singapore, wore an Order. Usually we would have seen the Speaker with an Order as well. Maybe this was the set dresscode?

Prince Constantijn wore his Dutch Order.

Better quality video of the State Banquet with a nice closeup look at the sparkling Dutch tiaras.



 
What a glorious sparkle. Candelabras and chandeliers are diamonds' best friends...

I have never seen aquamarines so sparkly. Wow.

The state visit ended with a government dinner hosted by Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte. Here's a video of King Willem Alexander and Queen Máxima's arrival:
