Het wordt kerkelijk ingezegend in de Nieuwe Kerk door dominee Carel ter Linden, predikant van de Haagse Kloosterkerk. Als bandoneonist Carel Kraayenhof Adios Nonino in de Nieuwe Kerk ten gehore brengt is Máxima tot tranen toe geroerd.

(In 1952 vertrekken Elisabeth en Philip voor een officieel bezoek naar de koloniën. De gezondheid van koning George VIII gaat sterk achteruit en binnen een week wordt het prinselijk paar teruggeroepen, de koning is in zijn slaap overleden. Bij terugkomst in Engeland wordt de daarna veelvuldig geciteerde zin voor het eerst uitgesproken; “…she left as a Princess to return as a Queen”. Op 6 februari 1952 wordt Elizaberth II koningin van Groot-Brittannië, Noord-Ierland en de landen van het Britse Gemenebest. De kroning moet wachten. De begrafenis van een regerend, geliefd vorst en de daarop volgende 16 weken durende rouw, geeft de bevolking de tijd tot rust te komen. Op 2 juni 1953 kan er worden gefeest want dan wordt Elizabeth in Westminster Abbey gekroond en tijdens deze ceremonie als hoofd van de Anglicaanse kerk, gezalfd.)
