Dutch Enthronement: The King and Queen

graphic 2

King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima were the stars of today and shine they did. Máxima chose a tiara instead of a hat (as expected) but pulled out one of the big guns with the Dutch Mellerio Tiara. With her amazing dress and cape, I think she looked every bit a queen without taking away too much focus from the man of the hour, King Willem-Alexander (it’s going to take some getting used to these new titles!). They both looked, in a word, perfect.

  1. When I saw the first picture of Queen Maxima all I could think of was “WOW”. I thought was was going to wear pink because she wears that a lot but this blue was the most beautiful color on her, especially with that amazing tiara.

    • I agree- Maxima looks every bit a Queen this morning. And that cape is beyond description it’s so beautiful!

      I’ve just confirmed that this blue dress was designed by Dutch designer Jan Taminiau. NATAN designed the dresses of the girls as well as the pale beigey pink ensemble Maxima wore for the abdication ceremony.

  2. She looked every inch a queen. That tiara looks way better on her than it ever did on Beatrix. I hope she wears it lots in the future
