New Portraits to Mark Máxima’s 40th Birthday
Her Royal Highness Princess Máxima of the Netherlands today celebrates her fortieth birthday. To mark the occassion, the Princess gave an interview and photo session with Dutch newspaper magazine AD.
A series of portraits were taken in late April by Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf, at Noordeinde Palace. The collection of portraits features both formal gala and informal images, representing the facets of the Princess’ professional life.
The editor of AD, Christiaan Ruesink, said that it was an honour to have an interview with the Princess in the magazine, and that he was “very proud” of the edition. Erwin Olaf described Máxima as “an attractive woman”, who has a special personality. The interview with AD also featured an interview with Princess Máxima’s parents, Jorge and Maria Zorreguita. It is their first, and possibly only, ever interview with Dutch press.
The Princess will officially celebrate her fortieth birthday at the end of May, with a concert performed by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.Dutch Royals
