The King and Queen of the Netherlands are currently on a state visit to the United Kingdom, where the royals are spending time with Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, Prince William, Duchess Kate, and other members of the British royal family. Tonight, Queen Elizabeth is hosting a state banquet at Buckingham Palace in honor of Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima's visit. As is expected with an elaborate affair that brings royals from not one but two European countries together, the tiaras were out in full force.
