Queen Elizabeth Meets Queen Maxima! (PHOTOS)

Queen Elizabeth II is keeping busy while she waits for the royal baby to arrive. Instead of camping outside the duchess' anticipated hospital as some well-wishers have done, Elizabeth pow-wowed with international royals on Wednesday.

King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima had tea with Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle, the couple's first official visit since ascending the Dutch throne. According to sources, the meeting was a joyous one -- kisses were involved.

Maxima wore a red sleeveless dress and practical nude pumps (sadly, no bicycle riding this time), while Elizabeth picked a festive long-sleeved number adorned with blue and green hydrangea. King Willem-Alexander modeled a sensible blue tie to round out the stylish trio.

Is this the beginning of a beautiful friendship, or what?
