  1. Wow! TBH, I had never seen Queen Emma’s Diamond Tiara in action and I was impressed. It is stunning! It glitters magnificently! That Romanov Pink Diamond and Pearl Corsage is amazing! The three ladies looked very nice. Princess Margriet’s pink and navy gown was lovely and Queen Maxima’s white gown was to die for! Princess Beatrix looked very excellent as well! I’m wondering where was Princess Margriet’s husband, Mr. Vollenhoven. He usually attends all these events with his wife. And Queen Maxima looked like she’s lost a lot of weight. She looks great, but I’m hoping her svelte figure is because she’s worked hard at it and not because of anything else. Oh, and the King looked very nice as well. 🙂
