i was wondering at what age the kids start to go to the queensday, I was thinking about Maxima's kids, I wonder if they see this on TV? I pressueme it is a lot of bodyguards for them and it would be more if the little kids would be involve, I suppose it is a metter of security for the young royals!

That's just her very own style.
I have to say: I quite liked her hat! Cannot be compared with Máxima's at all.

To me Máxima looked quite Laurentien-ish this time (style-wise). Usually it's Laurentien and Mabel who wear the "OMG; look at that color!"-outfits.
I remember when Maxima just came into the picture maybe just before Laurentien's wedding (I think) that all the dutch tabloids wrote about Laurentien being jealous of Maxima for all the attention she was given, also for totally overshadowing her. Maybe somebody has some old tabloid laying around somewhere? but I remember they writing even that Laurentien hated Maxima for it. Obviously, it's just tabloids which usually make up lots of crap and nonsence, but that's what I remember. Maybe that's why everyone thinks Laurentien tries to outshine Maxima, or to prove that she's just as good/ popular as her sister-in-law? I don't know really, I don't really see it, it seems to me that all the present princesses all try their best to be as enthusiastic and happy as possible during this day!

the reality is that she is a southamerican girl who won the harts of everybody, she is very popular and i would be not surprise that it is a little bit of jelousy, they probably didn't expect her big succes as a princess. she brought popularity to the royal inholland not being born royal or dutch so there are not doubt that she is a very clever woman and that she did a fantastci job so far, so i bet it is some jelousy from laurentin and the others!

I hope soon.

When Juliana was Queen the kids used to take part in Koninginnedag right from the beginning.
Beatrix changed the way the Royals celebrate Koniginnedag.. anyway it would have been nice to see the Kids along with their parents the way it has been during the reign of Juliana as well.

About the Laurentien-being-jelous-of-Máxima-thing.
I think this is all just a big hoax by the press. A thing in people's heads...
It's the same with Mary and Marie, Mary and Letizia, and so on and so on.

The children will never participate in this setting.Remember with Queen Juliana it was a defilé at the Palace,now they would have to walk/play and what not for hours in a pace too exhausting for children with ten's of thousands screaming their names from the top of their lungs.
It doesn't make sense.


The so-called Máxima _ Laurentien thing?

There isn't and never was such a thing.Contrary,both get along wonderfull,in fact,all three of HM daughter-in-laws get along great,they really do.An absolute hoax,rubbish,bogus story.But it sells.

I was in Makkum and Franeker that day, and it was very nice!
I had a small talk with princess Laurentien and princess Aimee.
Both princesses are very nice!
I maked more than 120 pictures, it was difficult to make a selection.
Here a nice picture (from my site) of princess Anita en princess Aimee, they pose for me!


And a nice picture of prince Floris and princess Aimee, they also pose for me!

And a nice picture of princess Maxima.


You can see more self-made pictures of this day on my site!
