    Please realize this is the queen upon arrival at the royal palace; she will re-dress for the reception of which in general no photos are being published

      Yes, I recall that this was the case in past years as well. She and the other lady royals dress up once they are in the palace and no photos are shown (or rarely are shown).

      @Anonymous 161/24/07:17: not worrying at all, 'au contraire'; just hoping to prevent loads of comments about the queen being too casual dressed for the occasion (and it worked!)

      @Anon 7:17 Sadly, it needs to be said because people are so quick to find fault--especially with Maxima.

    I love these relaxed and non staged, non-fancied-up photos of the King and Queen. They appear to be such nice people above all!
