While all of the Netherlands watched eagerly last week at their new King and Queen, we, at Seventy Seven Diamonds were watching closely at one particular aspect of the special day… The diamonds! The new Queen was bound to wear some, surely?! And the guests! Needless to say the girls didn’t disappoint!
After Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands announced earlier this year, after 33 years as sovereign, she would step down to allow her sound Willem-Alexander bring a “new generation” to the monarchy of the Netherlands. So, as newly crowned King Willem and his wife, Queen Maxima, the city of Amsterdam was filled with well wishers but also, monarchy from all over the world!
Wearing a diamond and sapphire tiara to match her earrings and dress, her first day as Queen was definitely an impressionable one. Followed swiftly by their daughter, the former Queen, now known as Princess Beatrix and royal family representatives from all over the world, this red carpet was quite a sparkly one!
Our very own Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall dazzled us with two outfits with matching accessories for the occassion. A diamond and pearl necklace with matching brooch for the day ceremony and a dazzling tiara with sequined dress for the evening’s state dinner.
