I agree .That was so disgusting of maxima . But I don't think that she gave up this habit . I heard that she was smoking and drinking during her both pregnancies and that is the reason why she had problems during her pregnancies.

This is that photo.

Thanks for posting the pic. I was never a fan of hers for a myriad of reasons (her father's politics being one of them), but this pic turned me off her completely & really confirmed her self-indulgent nature to me.

I hope her children are healthy, however, maybe it is just me, but yesterday when I was looking at the family pics I kept thinking that the older daughter had a mild downe syndrome kind of look. I'm not saying that to be mean, but it is just the immediate reaction I had upon seeing the pics.

You're welcome Sean. I think the same about Amalia. She was too fat and now looks strange especially her face . Maxima is a party animal and IMO this is not good for the royal family and Holland. WA smokes too much ,his teeth are very bad . Maxima's teeth turned yellow because of smoking.

More pictures about the smoking Maxima.

Oh dear, I'm afraid she doesn't look very lady-like in this photo. If smokers only knew what they look like with a "fag" dangling from their lips I'm sure they would give up.

She looks incredibly classless, IMO. But, then again we all let our hair down from time-to-time.

I just wish (and have been for years) that she'd get her teeth bleached or something. The smoking has taken its toll on them, as they are truly awful to look at. Not exactly the smile that one expects from a head of state.

My parents smoked like chimneys when my sister and I were growing up. My mother (she's 70) now smokes a pipe because cigarettes are too expensive and my dad (77) stopped years ago because he was diagnosed with alzheimers and decided to go cold turkey.

My mom is so addicted that I went to her house one day and I thought I smelt marijuana! It turns out she ran out of tobacco and was smoking some herbal tea I had once given her! Then she went out and bought some cheap tea as an emergency backup!

My sister and I have never smoked because we thought it was so disgusting. My sister and my son had asthma because of my parents (my son was with his grandparents alot when he was growing up). My son hates smoking and none of my sisters three children smoke. My brother and his wife and 5 kids don't smoke either (they're Mormon)...hopefully the trend will continue!

Those pictures don't help Maxima's case any. She looks like I do (a college student out for some fun!), which is probably not the best image if you're trying to say that you can follow the very professional and beloved Queen Beatrix....

Maxima is in holland the most popular royal, critizing her smoking so near to a child, let alone a new-born and one that is not even your own, is inconsiderate and has nothing to do with liking or disliking her. People with a bit of sense from west europe and north america are able to know by reading and watching tv that that is simply not well done.

Well, I have yet to see any pictures of her doing so, so I think that it's up for debate. Even if she does, she's VERY discrete about it. I think that shows that she knows it's a bad habit and she doesn't want it to be glorified or seen as something tolerable.

i think many are just trying to be too moralists...and many should perfectly know that smoking is indeed done near newborns, both if they're your own or not. if this is correct to do or not that is another story, but maxima is definitely nor the first nor the last person doing that...that is my point!

Just because others may or may not do it does not excuse her behaviour. The fact of the matter is that someone in her position is supposed to be setting an example, and thus should know better and have more self-control over their addictions. Concern for the child's health should have come before her need for a nicotine fix.

that might be the single most important thing we (or some of us) want of royals, to set an example that we can admire. Not perfection, that is boring, just not any major mistakes.

As much as I like QMII, I have to agree with you. They're not pretty to look at.
