I had the same feeling about the outfit, TLLK. The colour, and the fact that she was wearing a brooch, (of course not the same one as the one she wore to her engagement) also brought me back to that moment. Her hair is now also a little bit darker than in previous years, IMHO, which makes the hole appearance similar to the 2001 version of Máxima.

The skirt fitted her very, very well and the cut above the knee didn't strike me as "daring", like Hola magazine states, but really feminine. ..

I think the skirt is nice and she carry it well, but what I really love here is the jacket! Wonderful colour on her! But for next time the Princess recycles this outfit... I hope it will be with different shoes. The ones she is wearing are ugly and are not proper to her kind of legs, imo.

Well, the smile is fantastic as usual, but you would expect they have a comb at Villa Eikenhorst (or maybe they lent them all to the exhibition they have on Palace Het Loo at the moment).

And I am not a fan of leopard print either, I still have nightmares of GD Maria Theresa in a leopard print dress on a party of her s-i-l Marie-Astrid. At least it is a recycled dress, so no money was spend on it now.

I seem to have the idea in my head that they are donated to places like hospitals, but I have no idea (at all!) why I think that, and normally when I don't know why I think something there is a great chance that it is wrong....
Sorry, but thats the best I can do.

I am not sure if that also happens to the flowers they receive at these events, I can imagine that there is enough space in their own house to put some flowers. But the flowers they get for bigger events, like birthdays and births are usually distributed to a hospital or home for the elderly.

To lucien, here a picture, so you can see what the leopard nightmare looks like

It seems Máxima has joined a meeting of the Brussel Dutch Women Network.
The Princess was holding a Speech for 45 women who were attending that meeting. It dealed with the topic "Women at work".

Correct HM!
The ladies are all working in Brussels for the EU and among them was 'Iron Neelie', eurocomissioner Neelie Kroes. The group tries to network this way as it isn't easy for dutch women at the top (we have the lowest rate of women at work and in top functions of the EU I believe). The group has 160 members.

The website of the RF has a picture of Maxima in Brussels for the network meeting.

Click here.

I am wondering what the guy is doing there though, as it was about a female's network.
