[quote=Gertrude86;728344] The prince also said that he convinced maxima finally that she could really go to ski outside the pistes. She never skied before she married Willem-Alexander.

Well should you really ever ski outside the pistes? I thought it is far to dangerous because of the avalanges!

It is not dangerous, if you take a good guid with you. And they obviously do as Alexander mentioned it in the interview.

Between the photos are sooo great. The children are so cute and I love it to see Beatrix so relaxed and so affectionate with her grandchildren.

According to www.royalblog.nl Carmen Zorreguieta has been spotted in Lech too.

The blog also writes that Princess Maxima and Prince Willem-Alexander actually go to the supermarket themselves and that Willem-Alexander likes to cook, especially pasta.

The reporters also asked how Amalia liked school. Maxima said that the first week she was still excited but the second week she started to complain that she had to go out of bed so early each day. But school is going well, Amalia made new friends and the teacher is great.

Edit: I just saw RTL Boulevard, apparently Renee Roell is also in Leh (the Queen went skiing with her after the photosession was over) and Willem-Alexander actually awnsered what they gave his mother for her birthday: a book with pictures of her art works.

Apparently Amalia wore a helmet at home for a week, to get used to it as she has to wear it while skiing. Maxima also said that this would probably be the last skiing holiday with the Queen as in the future Amalia can not skip school anymore (this year she is not oblidged to go yet).

I simply have to echo this..... I would have liked to see little Luana with them. She seems to be such a doll, albeit a bit shy (although in the two pics taken with with her grandmother - with Zaria and the one with all the grandkids last year- she looked positively naughty and h-a-p-p-y) . If I'm not mistaken, they were not in the Lech photosession last year, too. Too bad! I can always hope, though.

Lovely pics, translation of the interview, and links, many many thanks! Countess Eloise is really growing on me (not that I didn't like her before).

Poor Princess Maxima doesn't look too happy in some of the clips. She seemed worried about little Princess Ariane's crying.

I actually like the thought of them in the grocery store. Imagine running in to them while doing your shopping. That would be quite the sighting!

I am not too sure but I believe this is the 2nd one after Hansje Gotz. Queen Beatrix used to change them each year, to prevent their children from getting too close to a nanny and see them as some sort of surrogate mother.

Oh umm,Marengo,it's Máxima that does the cooking as she said herself,"mostly pasta's" said the Prince.Their annual stay in Lech is also the time they meet up with family and friends from Argentina.Short after their recent stay in the latter,but still,it has become a tradition.

If Amaila can't miss school so they may not go skiing next year, how can Elois miss school for the family ski trip?

may be it is a good idea, the kids probably would get attach to the nanny, but in the other hand it is not easy to get the rutin with a new one, i can imagine the extend of investigation and background check that have this nnanies!

That would be too bad if they weren't able to go to the winter holiday next year because of Amalia's school. Maybe they take a winter break during Amalia's winter break?! The children look so adorable. Little Alexia looks like her mother every passing day.

As the couple lives in Brussels,belgian school rules apply and they probably did have holidays,it all differs quite a bit from The Netherlands.
