  1. Sophie looks so amazing here! Wow! In my eyes she looks better than Maxima in this occasion, she completely outdoes her, in comparison to Sophie Maxima appears a Little old-fashioned today

    1. Sophie looks spectacular! Excellent choice of hardware as it adds height. Queen Maxima has such long legs that I prefer when she wears longer hem lines. I’m not a fan of the ornate pink dress but do like how if fits her. I think she looks regal here.

  2. These two ladies really seem to enjoy each others company, both so friendly and outgoing. Sophie looks wonderful today in the navy, love her hat. Maxima's dress is too bright for my taste. But her dress fits well and her hair is styled nicely.

    I love both outfits very much. They match their personality's, I guess.

  5. Wow! This is the best outfit I've ever seen Sophie in! Well, the dress is a bit short but who cares when you look this smashing at the age of 53! Maxima is OK. Colorful as usual but a little old fashioned.

    1. I agree, one of Sophie's best outfits. Navy blue is very nice color even for her. Maxima is ok, not my favorite color, not my favorite dress but her smile is always so wide and warm that you don't even see what she has on.

  10. Love Sophie's outfit and the hat is great. She looks fantastic. I agree that Maxima's outfit is very bright, but it's very much her style and is elegant and smart. The hat is good too. And What about the Queen, looking lovely in her lilac outfit and so delighted to see Maxima again,

  11. I don't like Máxima' dress at all, I generally like this color, but maybe for other occasions , if it was short sleeved, or with a boat neck, more in a cocktail dress type, I don't know it just looks way too bright, maybe like a wedding attendee, and definitely matronly. Sophie looks smashing, I would have preferred 2 extra centimeters on the skirt lengt, but she looked fantastic. The Queen, cool as a cucumber ( as usual)

  12. Everyone looks like they really enjoy seeing each other. Even Queen Elizabeth looks happy to see Maxima. Sophie looks terrific. Best I've seen her. Maxima looks great in her usual bright colors.

  14. As usual Maxima wants to be the center of attention with the bright pink dress black gloves and silly hat. Sophie looks very elegant and beautiful, Maxima hasn't learned that less is more.

    1. Nin Pujol, why so judgmental? It's OK not to like the way a person dresses, and to offer critique about fashion, but your comment is very derisive, and of course subjective. No need to be rude.

  15. It's apity that the black motiff is interrupted at the waist. I think it would look better if the pattern is continued through the waist down without interruption.

  16. All the ladies look great here. Sophie is the best for me. The color looks great on her, but I would love to see a couple of inches on her skirt. I really love her hat to complete her outfit. Maxima's look is more sophisticated than many she has chosen in the past. Oscar de la Renta is a better choice of designer than her usual go-tos. Her hat is a more appropriate size for the visit as well. I think she needed the color to still be "Maxima". I enjoy seeing the Queen in a suit. She really looks lovely. It is a nice change from her coat dress.

  17. Sophie has worn this navy outfit before and it fit better, she has gained some weight which probably accounts for the fact that it looks a bit shorter and tight. I do not like the color of Maxima’s dress, it is too bright, makes it look cheap and I am sure it was not...

  18. Maxima looks great - love the colour and style. Her hair is very chic here. Sophie also looks wonderful - love the outfit and can't see what the problem is with the length.

  19. Maxima copycat this outfit from Odamae Brown ( aka Whoopi Goldbererg in the Film Ghost)
