Queen Maxima wore a costume from the Belgian fashion house Nathan, consisting of a light pink crepe silk dress: a sleeveless dress with a loose robe over it. By the way, it flew into the air several times due to the wind, but again it was designed very quickly by Amalia. Maxima also wore her beige robe, a favorite piece of clothing. And as accessories a soft pink hat, suede handbag and shoes. Other than that, little frills, but looks are deceiving, because the rose quartz bracelet she was wearing is an heirloom of Queen Juliana, which was originally a necklace. Matching rose quartz earrings are also included.
Amalia chose an off-white Max Mara striped linen suit with large dark gray stripes and a dark gray bottom shirt. The price of the pants is 439 euros and the jacket is 819 euros. She can handle her wide legs, they are cute and tall. Caramel shoes and a bright green Jacquemus bag complete the look.
Amalia’s bag already hints at the bright green trouser suit her sister Alexia wore with stunning gold buttons, which could only have been from Zara and which have been hauled out of the store in recent weeks. Amalia combines the whole with a soft green/pink top with pattern. Plus, a pink clutch, not exactly the same color as Maxima’s dress, but it goes with everyone. The bag may also have been borrowed from her, because the Queen had worn this bag from Nathan before.
Younger sister Ariane was out of place in all colors with her navy blue knit dress from her favorite French brand Sandro (€265), but the eye-catching silver studs and bright yellow fluorescent bag more than make up for it. Remarkably, the younger member turned out to be quite tall, even though she is wearing a strappy heeled sandal.
King Willem-Alexander chose not a dark blue suit for a change, but for the very current summer variant, in gray, with a white blouse and light tie, very elegant. The King, who turned 55 on Wednesday, was still dressed up and happening this week with his purple stockings in casual tracksuits during the Invictus Games, where he was with Britain’s Prince Harry.
The colorful trend of mixing and matching Maxima with her girls is an absolute one. So it is not necessary that all the colors be reflected in the outfit yourself, but you can also combine them with each other, as the royal ladies did. This shows how much they care about fashion influences and that they don’t pull anything random.
Last year, during King’s Day, ladies wore their favorite colors individually, but this year it was all in fashion. It is also remarkable that the sisters did not wear overcoats as Maxima did.
The other princesses in attendance also adhered well to the dress code of mixing and matching with members of the royal family. With her soft light yellow outfit, Marilène set the tone and Aimée also did well in off-white with an all-over cobalt blue jumpsuit, while the worn colors were also reflected in Annette and Laurentien’s outfits. Princess Annette also chose a striking green, which also participated well in the richness of colors.

The only ‘inappropriate’ actually belonged to Mayor Annemarie Penn-te Strake of Maastricht, who appeared in her current pastel pink tweed dress, but unfortunately was too long and was a quality Alice in Wonderland.
