Prinsjesdag is the day on which the opening of the Dutch Parliament takes place on the third Tuesday in September. On that day, the reigning monarch of the Netherlands traditionally gives a speech from the throne at a joint session of the Dutch Senate and House of Representatives. After the speech from the throne, the Royal Family went to the Noordeinde Palace, where the balcony scene traditionally takes place.

  4. Amalia looks quite good, I wonder about the jewels she is wearing. For Maxima, what to say; she obviously doesn't know words as simplicity, discreetness, classy etc

    The dresses are rather bulky and not particularly flattering. The hair and makeup look great.

    Amalia's dress is beautiful, but doesn't suit her body type.

    Princess Laurentien looks wonderful in that pastel pink. I'm not usually one for large jewelry, but it works here on her, especially since the dress is simple. CP Amalia looks lovely as well, especially her hair and makeup. I'm not quite sure about her dress sleeves though. And Maxima, love the dramatic top of this dress (it suits her flair for bold), but I'm not sold on the cut of the skirt with the way the slit is done. But the color is gorgeous.

    Nice as Maxima's dress is, it seems out of place for September. More suited to November. It reminds me of the 30's styles for women, in the time of Wooster and Jeeves. CP Amalia has a lovely dress which matches her preference for loose flowing fabric. The hair and makeup of all the ladies is perfect.

    I like Maxima´s dress as far as the design and color goes. I find the fabric a bit too heavy. I realise it needs a rather stiff fabric but I think this is too much. The design is gorgeous.
    I find Amalia´s dress ugly. Don't like the colour, too much fabric especially in the sleeves. The whole look is all too fussy with the sleeves, the low cut, riband and strings of hair hanging all over. The hat looks nice on her but does not go with the dress.

      I agree with you. Amalia’s dress is ugly and doesn’t look good in her. She looks like a fifty year old matrone in the 60’s….

    As much as I look forward to find what queen Máxima will wear, this is just a disaster, it borders on theatrical. Wondering if she wasn’t boiling under that outfit.
    The dress looks like a heavy blanket, the excessive amount of fabric, the enormous shawl or whatever it is, hat, gloves etc., I can only like one thing, the color.
    Amalia’s dress is very pretty, I think she would’ve benefitted if the hair had been gathered with a semi-updo, her appearance is also a little cluttered.

    If Maxima would have left the shawl thing off the outfit would have looked perfect four the occasion.

  17. Wow, I LOVE Maxima's coat/dress with the shawl-y collar or whatever it is - amazing, and I seem to be the only one who likes it. :-)
    Amalia has such a lovely face, favours her dad, I think. I love the colour and cut of her dress.

    Sadly, too much of everything from fabric (other than the color of the Queens outfit which beautiful), winter outfit in Sept., and odd wrap are over the top, which is never a good look. Amalia, dress not her best choice, especially with off colored hat and shoes she wore. The sister in law too much jewelry, and dress much to pale. jane

  19. This is a hard one for me. where does one start?
    First thing I'll do is make a good pot of tea and then have a good think.
    I can see that Princess Laurentien is living up to form with her chunky jewels and rose hat. For the rest, I'll have to phone in later.
    Sorry for the delay.

    Cannot make up my mind if I like Q Maximas gown. I like the color. The wrap is too much. Pss Amalia looks lovely, also like the necklace and earrings a lot. All grown up. I like Pss Laurentien's gown. css

  21. Queen Maxima looks beautiful, I love this retro style gown. Her hat and up style hair look so elegant. CP Amalia, looks gorgeous, a very pretty gown, the color suits her beautifully. The diamond and emerald jewels are stunning, the perfect choice.

    Besides that Queen Maxima is wearing a questionable duvet outfit, I have always thought that the dress code for this event in the Netherlands is very strange. And this year the ladies seem to dress in different kinds of dress codes.

  24. One of the few occasions I find Princess Laurentien best dressed compared to the rest. The light pink may not be the best colour on her, still it's way better than the Queen and the Princess of Orange (sporting a hat of her mother that does not suit her at all, irrespective of re-using being a good thing in general).

    Oh my! Maxima brought the bedspread--very little overwhelms Max but this outfit does. Amalia's gown is lovely--great color and great color on Amalia. Not a fan of her hat but she's got plenty of time to learn about fabulous hats. Laurentian dress is a beautiful shade of pink and it looks good on her but I can't tell much else.

    Amalia’s gown is a brilliant choice and flatters her figure by accentuating her waist. I love the rich deep green contrasting with her blonde hair and the feminine floaty fabric. Maxima just made me shake my head in confusion—perhaps she has good muscles to hold up all that fabric and is immune to heatstroke . Laurentine is somewhere between the two.

  30. OK ladies, my comment is strictly about fashion, not whether she is fun, and engaging. This dress is one of those you see in the runway and think is just weird, and surely if anybody dares to wear it, they will surely tweaked to make it less strange, but no.... it looks heavy, unflattering and with space suit vibe, sorry to say I find it horrendous, the hat, gloves, jewels and everything else use makes it even worse. Amalia looks fine, nothing remarkable and a tad busy. I can't appreciate Princess Laurentiene dress on these pictures, it looks fine, but the necklace seems a little too much.

    There are many shades of grey but this ice-grey coat dress looks beautiful and suits with Maxima's blond hair. The style is unusual. Reminds me of the duvet thrown over the shoulders to keep warm. Perhaps considering high energy prices this style will be in vogue this autumn-winter? Anyway Maxima has height and posture to carry off this kind of "big" styles very well.
    Amelia looks lovely in her forest-green dress. Hope she wasn't cold.
    Princess Laurentien looks lovely in light pink. Hope to see better photos of her.

    Máxima, as always over the top. Keep this dress for a state visit to Iceland is my advice. As it will be a very heavy year with high energy prices for everyone why not as a gesture wearing a dress that she already had. Amalia as always in a kind of "grandmother" dress. She is 18. Who is advising her. She is having this beautiful face.

    Maybe Maxima's dress looks like a winter outfit but it isn't. On the picture where she steps out of the golden coach one can see through the fabric. I like the design but I don't know if it is a good idea for Maxima. Amalia's dress is beautiful on the model but I think it is too old for her. The emeralds are not suitable for a young woman of 18 years old. Laurentine's pink dress is the best of the three royal ladies. If only she could do something different with her hair and wearing some other hat, it would have been perfect. Laurentine's dry hair needs a good treatment and a better haircut.
    I always wondered why they have to wear long evening dresses to go to the parliament in bright day light. The golden coach is also exaggerated but of course it is tradition in the Netherlands.

  38. @ J, I think we all know that indeed Máxima is human, and a very fun one if one can judge by the pictures we all enjoy. I can't understand why some people can't separate fashion with personality... really!!! My comments are about what she is wearing, not about who she is. Period. Full stop. Don't make this a personal battle.
