Sorry to laugh, but it is slightly funny.
I love how the child is completely oblivious to hitting his mother int he face. But I know how she feels.

One time I have holding my little cousin who was 2 yrs old at the time for a group picture with my other cousins and he was playing with this toy and just as the picture was being taken he wacked me in the face with it leaving me with a bruise on my on right cheek. Lets just say my family still cracks up laughing when ever its brought up at family gatherings and they never miss an opportunity to show the picture to any guest that are at my aunts house.

Good God!! I would have sued the person in charge of the lighting!!! I've gotten sunburn before on my shoulders and trust me its not a pleasant feeling. But that looks like it hurts like hell!! I can only imagine what Mette-Marit looked like.

I wouldn't say that this is an unpleasant moment. I don't even think Rania realized that her shirt up just a tiny bit. I mean you can heardly see anything. I've seen people with everything (I'm talking gut and all ) hanging out for all the world to see. This is nothing, I have seen worst......trust me.

I to know exactly how it feels.

Being the ''beloved" Aunt I was dragooned into changing my Nephew's nappy. As he joyfully kicked his robust little legs in the air one of his heels made contact with my spectacles. Lights out!

To this day I don't know who is more embarassed about that. My nephew or me!

In the DVD "Een sprookjespaar in beeld" (a compilation of video footage on the engagement & wedding of WA and Maxima, and the process in between), it is seen that during the so-called "Maxi-tour", the princess-to-be at that time had to deal with too-affectionate people that almost jumped over her to "get closer to the future Princess" or so it seems (though this was always avoided by security guards)... i don't know whether her terrified expression was captioned somewhere...

I remember a guy with his hair dyed orange, climbing a bridge to encounter her, and some other guy jumping a fence and running to her...

Oh well, I found the caption myself

In this (small) picture you'll see a terrified Máxima with a too affectionate man during the "Maxi-tour" in 2001.

Oh my goodness! How funny! Hey, at least she knew right from the beginning that the people of her adopted country loved her! Anyone have this picture in a larger size? Thanks for the pic!

Didn't Zara Phillips fall off her horse after a jump during a show this past weekend? I read that she didn't hurt herself but she was sore. Are there any pictures?

When I was 13 I fell off a horse that got spooked by something. The horse reared up and I went flying backwards off the horse and landed on the ground. But here's the scary part the horse kept rearing up and nearly stepped on me but I rolled out of the way the horse seriously missed me by inches. Since then I adamently refuse to get on the back horse.

I just don't think I could take a spill or have my skirt fly up for the whole world to see and then continue on as if it never happened. My hat goes out to Royals cause I know it isn't easy. Or in some Royal cases...is blown off. (Yeah its a pretty stupid pun.)

It's not easy for us as regular people to have something embarrassing happen to us (and take this from the world's biggest clutz! ) but having lots of people see it live, have pictures and film taken, and have it broadcast over and over must be excruciating. I couldn't have handled the "wind and granny-panties" situation nearly as well as Letizia did. I would have locked myself in my room for months or years until everybody had forgotten about it! It probably did embarrass her a lot, having the fact that she wore underwear like my mother's shown on the news around the world and having an increased search for "Letizia" on Google, but she showed that she was stronger than that incident, and she came out on top.

I personally think that Anne will get a lot more criticism for being rude to the poor man who tried to help her than for falling. Falling is something that could have happened at any time to anyone, and it is no big deal at all, and people would have laughed, but it would brush over. But, then again, she has been rude to so many people in public that this is no big thing for her!

There's this video of Letizia when she and Felipe was visiting some place, and while she was waving to the crowd, her skirt was blown by the wind, and people can see her undies.. You can check it out here:

I don´t know if loosing an earring is considered 'umpleasant', but certainly a 'not desirable' or planned detail in an official duty!

Máxima notices she has lost an earring:

http://droomprinsessen.web-log.nl/droomprinsessen/images/maxima_verloor_oorbel.jpg

And being almost hit in the face by a wooden stick....is certainly not that nice either!

In the first photo you posted, the man who is searching the earring for Princess maxima seems to be beginning a little "courtier dance" before her...Go on with the Menuet!

In this picture, Máxima is clearly dealing with the harassment from the press in Argentina.

http://img274.imageshack.us/img274/8895/415ov.jpg

She's extracting (or trying to) money from a cash-expender situated in the supermarket that's next to her family-residence, in Recoleta.

'No no no, no pictures!"

I currently goes to this very supermarket! (I recognize it in a glance). It's "Disco" and it is placed exactly four blocks of my flat. This supermarket is just beside Princess Maxima's parents flat in Recoleta.

Poor Maxima!

Although I love seeing new pics of the royals, heavens knows that the poor things have to go through in order for us to see them. I know it's their duty etc but I don't like to see them being harrassed on their 'day off' so to speak.
