Dutch members of parliament on Sunday asked the government to reconsider the planned State Visit of Queen Beatrix, who accompanied by Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima, is set to visit Sultan Qaboos this Sunday, March 6. They are also scheduled to visit the Port of Sohar during the first ever Dutch State Visit to a Gulf country.

Dat is wel waar, alhoewel ik laatst nog een artikel zag dat beweerde dat die vriendschap fake is.
Euhm oops Embarrassed

True, although I read an article not long ago that said this whole friendship thing between them is a fake.

Sut she's busy with real life at the moment (looking for a job)
So until I hear from her...Nothing we mods can do about it.. sorry!

Thanks for the pm to TCP Akasha.  Hi

Would make sense to me. Mathilde always looks calm and composed while Maxima looks like a kid  wioth ADHD who forget to take her ritalin for 3 days sometimes.

Just for fun:

Yeah it's not the first time they showed up in a twin-look
It always is good for a few snickers when they do that!
But I must say both have an excellent style that suits and flatters them!

The Dutch government information service said Wednesday the decision to call off the visit was taken by both countries because "current developments demand all (Oman's) attention." The royals were to have been joined by Dutch business leaders and government ministers on a trade-boosting visit.

There can be abuse of, the school said. The police are involved in the project. Prince Willem-Alexander told the students that he was not active on hyves but on Facebook. "But not under my own name. The i-pad I use often and so I'm always accessible."

Quote
The government called off a three-day state visit by Beatrix in the strategically important Gulf state last week, citing social unrest roiling parts of the Arab world spread to Oman. But it then announced that Beatrix would have a private dinner with Sultan Qaboos bin Said in the capital Muscat Tuesday night before heading to Qatar on a state visit.

According to the press here Bea decides to accept the invitation
because of the three Dutch soldiers imprisoned in Lybia right now

Sultan Qaboos might have some influence on Khadaffi.

But at first it was a state visit now it's only private. If the government really thought that it was important why do they not back up the visit?

I think that the reason given is, a bit, well, not very believable.

Sultan Qaboos has Queen Beatrix Wednesday delighted to welcome in the Netherlands during her much-discussed and controversial stopover to Qatar, where she now is expected for an historic state visit. The red carpet was rolled out, the honor guard of the sultan was ready and waiting for the royal party outside the palace.

From threadbare armchairs to marble mantel clocks, garden furniture to a silver pocket knife, thousands of the late Dutch Queen Juliana's possessions are going under the hammer in an attic sale fit for a king.
