Yes, on Queen's Day (April 30th) she made a reference to Princess Máxima in her speech on the stairs of the City Hall of 's-Hertogenbosch (Bois-le-Duc). Queen Beatrix stated: "We all miss our Máxima a bit, but you know the reason why she is not with us. [Loud cheer]. In our family we all are delighted with such a sweet healthy girl. [Loud cheer]. Again it was an unforgettable day! Thanky you all! [Loud cheer]"

The Queen and the Princess really like each other very much. On this picture you see the Queen proudly wearing the diamond-and-sapphire brooch she received as a present from the Zorreguieta's.

King Juan Carlos is indeed a Super Royal Grandpa! I bet his grandchildren must all love him a great deal...

Well, Crisiñaki...You amazed me, for sure! This pic at the Perito Moreno Glaciar seems to be taken from a movie! (A romantic one, of course! And since I'm a hopeless romantic woman... ) And don't speak of the second one, where the King and the Queen seems a 15 years old couple! Thank you for posting them...

"Love is a splendorous thing..."

Vanesa.

She broke her leg during a visit to Sweden, before getting married to Willem Alexander. I believe it was year 2001. In that picture she is toasting for the approval of their marriage by the Dutch Parliament.

Letizia with baby Sofia...
... and Leonor

Daddy running after his little girl

Daddy and Leonor

Can those girls get any cuter?! Can't wait for Sofia's christening, she will surely change a bit and Leonor will steal the show again!

wow S, thanks for the link! (and thanks marenostrum for the cool trip down memory lane)

There were some pics I've never seen and I loved the last part, specially that of the Jealous King (what do you want, photograph the Queen or invite her to dinner?; what are you doing Pepe, trying to hit on the Queen of Spain?)
