I like Maxima's haircut, makeup, outfit - altogether great. She seems to be darkening her hair color, and maybe growing out the roots. If she is darkening her hair (and it's not my imagination), I like the color better than the pale blond her hair was heading towards before. The hair color seems more honey-colored, more natural, and flattering.
Everyone looks very happy and relaxed. As a follower of British royalty as well, it's strange to me to see Queen Beatrix stepping aside for part of the photocall so that the focus is WA, Maxima and Amalia. I can't imagine Queen Elizabeth II, or any of the other senior royals, stepping aside and shifting the focus to lower-ranking royals (except for weddings or something like that). Beatrix looks so much the proud grandmother, and happy, and not worried about seniority protocols. Very nice!
xxLindaxx, what name did you search under to find the shopping trip pictures? I can't find them.You can try under fotosmulders.nl and "trefword" and then you must write Maxima and then you can see the pics of Laurentien and Maxima...:)
Has somebody recorded the christening of Ingrid Alexandra?It was so nice to see all of them together as a happy family...
