Dutch Official Visit to Chile; March 19-21, 2003

Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands visits Chile
Mon Mar 17,12:20 PM ET

SANTIAGO, Chile - Dutch Queen Beatrix flew to southern Chile for a three-day private stay prior to beginning an official visit Wednesday, officials said.

Foreign Minister officials said the queen, who arrived in Chile on Sunday, flew to the Villarica lake area, some 650 kilometers (280 miles) south of Santiago.

She was accompanied by her son, Prince Willem, and his Argentine-born wife Maxima, the officials said.

The Dutch queen's official visit includes a meeting with President Ricardo Lagos, a visit to the house-turned-museum of the late Chilean Nobel-Prize winning poet Pablo Neruda.

She will also visit the archaeological village of San Pedro the Atacama, 1,400 kilometers (879 miles) north of Santiago.

Princess Maxima of the Netherlands showed the charm she's renowned for on Tuesday, as she visited a centre for street kids in Rio De Janeiro.

The striking blonde, along with her husband, Prince Willem-Alexander, and mother-in-law, Queen Beatrix, chatted with a group of enthusiastic children during a visit to the Sao Martinho Foundation, a non-profit organisation helping reintegrate homeless youngsters into society.

Maxima, wearing a white hat and cherry-toned trouser suit, animatedly talked with a little boy in a shirt autographed by football legend Pele, and later shared warm smiles and whispers with another young admirer.

The Dutch royals are on a five-day visit to the region, which aims to help strengthen trade ties. After Tuesday's tour of Rio, the queen and her family were scheduled to head to Sao Paolo, where the monarch planned to visit cultural sites and tour an aeroplane factory. On Friday, Maxima and Willem-Alexander will join her to explore Dutch colonial remains in Recife.

You are most welcome, Jacqueline! :)

Thank you for the excellent pics of Maxima! She has amazing taste in hats and can actually pull them off without a hitch. I think the gold hat looks really outstanding on her.

Yes, very lucky young man to have a shirt autographed by Pele!

Here is another picture from her trip to South America.

Thank you for the pics, Mandy! Maxima has excellent carriage and she is one of those very fortunate women who is able to wear hats incredibly well. :)

Wow! Interesting evening ensemble! I think Maxima looks wonderful in those celadon and lime-y green shades. Asymmetrical gowns/tops look fantastic on her as well. Thank you for the pics, Mandy!

Again the asymmetrical top, sleek hair in a low chignon and chandelier earrings look wonderful on Maxima.

I love the silver lace cocktail dress Maxima is wearing. She looks very elegant and fun. I could say that I would like the dress better if it were a floor length gown, though.

Hi Julia & Jacqueline,

I am glad you are both enjoying the pics. :) Maxima looks like a different person with every outfit she wears. It must be... mystique... non? B)

I don't know about the colour combination of her evening gown - strawberry and brown? It's supposedly one of the hot new colour combos this spring, but I'm not that crazy about it.

Ha-ha, Mandy! I am not sure that even Maxima can pull a hard-hat off!!!

The first pic with W-A and Queen Beatrix is really cute. Thanks for the pics, Mandy! :)
