According to NOS Teletekst 7 young dutch(wo)men from maroccan descent will join the prince and princes in Marocco. This was suggested by the court itself and will be financed by the Orange Fund (wedding gift of the population to WA and Maxima for theri marriage). I like the signal the couple want to give with this, let's hope it will do some good.

Yes, she has big feet. But I'm not sure how big exactly, I thought size 42 (Europe). But they are big, esp. for an argentinian woman.

well, argentinian woman, as well as latin ones, tend to be quite tall. maxima seems to be tall as well, and we need to have into account that the shoes are pointy shoes and not rounded. those look bigger, specially when seen from the profile and not from the front or from above...

i loved the reception in the airport. willem, maxima and moulay raschid seem to be happy to meet each other. i also liked the part of him kissing maxima's hand, he is such a gentleman!
according to protocol, does he have to kiss her hand? they are both prince and princess.. why is that then? is it just a polite gesture to her as she is a lady?

what were those things they offered them?

i don't know why, but all this looks so glittery to me! probably it's because of the fact it's at night, but there seem to be so many people there and the nice thing of offering them things to eat and drink that are specially from the country they are visiting... it looks to me so beautiful.

Oh, ok. I wasn't sure about the tea (that's why I edited it) mainly because it wasn't served in the beautiful Moroccan tea glasses.

great news! thanks the watcher... what's the source? in the official planning it doesn't say anything... will it be a gala dinner as the one they hosted for the spanish king and queen?

i can't wait to see a photo of maxima and salma. in some way, they look so much alike to me, they both seem to be really determined, intelligent, feminine but not shallow and interested in important things (as rania, mathilde for example, as well)
