However, I find it a real shame seeing the Queen-Consort not taking the trouble to have a more neat hairdo, which would make that impressive tiara look even better !
Earlier that day she attended another event and there she had her hair up It is astonishing seeing that a few hours later the Royal Couple arrives by car in Amsterdam and Maxima already has her gown & tiara "on show" while the King was dressed more casually. Inside the Palace the King changed into more formal evening-wear (of course!) while his Consort just looked exactly the same as when she stepped out of the car
I am sorry, but on such a formal occasion - and honestly - hosting a Banquet for all foreign Diplomats (the Corps Diplomatique) is one of the most important events when the RC represents their country for so to show up with messy hair and not taking the time to look your best? Wonder what she was thinking ?????
Thankfully both former Queen Beatrix and her sister Princess Margriet never let us down and know how things are done!
