    Default Queen Elizabeth, Queen Máxima & King Willem-Alexander, Prince Charles & Camilla



    Queen Maxima, left, and King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands were guests of honour at a state banquet hosted by the Queen at Buckingham Palace. Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall were also on hand to celebrate the guests



    Princess Mabel van Oranje-Nassau wore a bold dress with bright yellow and deep blue details and an Impressionist-style rose print as she walked in with the Archbishop of Canterbury



    Princess Michael of Kent wore a pale green dress paired with pearl and diamond accessories

    Now THAT is a tiara.
    I don’t think the Dutch royals are especially tall, they just highlight how small their British cousins are, although HMQ is a bit stoopy now which doesn’t help.
    Camilla seems to have settled on that A-line silhouette for all her outfits now and I don’t blame her. It’s very flattering.
    Kate’s creased dress is horrible but it does tell us that her figure has snapped back to skinny, even after 3 kids. Isn’t she marvellous?

    WA is six feet tall, which is pretty tall to me but I'm only 5'6" lol

    I love Max' tiara but I'm not wild about her dress. I like the color of Catherine's dress but I don't like the wrinkly look of it.

    Queen Maxima looks stunning. I love her dress, that tiara is goals (but it looks heavy as hell, lol) she just looks really pretty.

    The Queen looks miserable.

    I wonder if she's jealous of Phillip getting to stay home? He doesn't have to bother with anything he doesn't want to anymore!

    And I'll bet he's loving it. If he can even recall why.

    The racist skank is wearing some gorgeous gems. The big ones look like aquamarines to me but they say diamonds. Either way, some pretty nice pieces. Wish someone else were wearing them.

    I feel bad for the Queen, detest Michael of Kunt, and love the orange flower arrangement.

    I do like when the Queen's smiling at Willem Alexander.

    That room is so intimidating, as it was designed to be.

    Hmmm, I think he must be taller. Here's a few pix with the Dutch prime minister, who is close to 6'4":

    I've never seen so many crowns and tiaras in one place! I like Camilla's crown better than the Queen's, but they're all dripping with jewels. They all look lovely. Who is Princess Michael of Kent and how is she related to the royal family? Why is Prince Charles so red in the face? Is he always that ruddy? The Dutch, by the way, are the tallest people in the world.

    That's quite a banquet. Charles is even more red than usually and Camilla looks too bridal. Theresa May looks like a stuffed sausage :p

    Michael of Kent? Why is she even there? She looks so lovely, like the devil in disguise, being such a disgrace.
    Camilla looks the best to me, as usual.
    I'm happy to see Mabel. She does great work within the UN and it's nice to see that she is still very much a part of the dutch royal family.

    For those who are curious Max was wearing the Stuart Tiara, last seen in public when Queen Juliana wore it on a state visit to the UK in 1972. It's rumored to be the most expensive piece of jewelry of the Dutch royal family's crown jewels.

    I don't love Kate's dress but she looks good. Hell even Camilla looks decent.
