what did she do?

I would not say that these moments are "not so good". I would said that they are most funny moments (or even embarrassing ones) than bad moments....

Any odd moment with Maxima involved? (any other than the infamous "een beetje dom" statement...) I believe she crashed with her car when she had just arrived in NL, but i am not sure...

The event was on May 13, 2004, when Mary was introduced to the members of the Danish Parliament.

An unpleasant moment for Haakon - His 2002 sunburn (picture from Reuters) from German TV lights. Mette-Marit was burned too and ended up having to stay home from the trip all together. She had quite a few unpleasant moments that year - the sunburn, the pneumonia, the broken ankle...

Good grief !!!!!! That's not a sunburn, that's a medical emergency.

Yes I remember what happened to Haakon and also Mette-Marit .
In fact, they were both interviewed by a german TV . It took place outside and there was a lot of sun . The cameras were not well set and they became sort of magnifying glasses with the sun ...

See the result, they were REALLY burned ...

Here's Mette-Marit's 2002-Sunburn.

Poor them! They both looked horribly burned. I never saw someone else before who had such a sunburn after a TV Interview.

Mette-Marit's Sunburn

YOW! Poor, poor girl! While I have an olive tone to my skin, my mother has a complexion as fair as Mette-Marit... which usually forces her to keep out of the sun altogether.

The folks who set up that interview shouldn't be invited back...

'Een beetje dom' means 'A bit stupid'. A couple of weeks before the engagement W-A got mad at the press, because they didn't check their sources and only told their side of the story, according to the prince. He pointed out that he had read a letter in a paper which stated that Maxima's dad had nothing to do with the people who disappeared in Argetina during the Videla regime. Later, this letter turned out to be written by Videla himself. How about checking out your sources yourself, W-A? When the two got engaged, some journalist refered to this event and Maxima told that this stupid remark of W-A to the press was 'een beetje dom'. It actually wasn't that painful for Maxima. She saved her fiance by breaking in with this sentence, which now is very common in Dutch language when you want to tell someone in a subtile manner that he's behaving in a stupid way...

I found a short video of this moment:

As for Mette-Merit even being seen in public looking less than her beautiful self the following week, IMHO it took more guts than most people, let alone royalty, have.

I remember that horrible burning incident...
the only thing I always wondered... Is that possible that that you don't notice that immediately, stay for the interview, if you are burnt like THAT?

Hillary's look and stance are so "ice princess." She didn't even flinch to help Queen Sophia. I think she looks rude.
