As posted by Sal on the Benelux Royals MB:

Quote:
Princess Máxima has become more emotional after becoming mother she tells in an interview with magazine Onze Wereld (Our World), a magazine about globalisation. "My attention for poverty has not changed, but I got more emotional about it", so she tells.

"Once you have children, you are much more aware of the future and your responsibility of insuring the future, for security, freedom, sustainability, respect and chances.
I must admit that I now have much more problems with unjustice and unsafety. Sometimes I cannot listen to the stories simply because I am too touched emotionally."
The princess misses the notion of urgency in the world sometimes with questions concerning such as poverty reduction, environment and tolerance for cultural differences. "I do have problems personally with the hypocrecy and the windowdressing which I encounter sometimes."
The princess admits that as a member of the royal house she must be careful sometimes in her work and with her opinions, but the possibilities which prince Claus and I have got in this position to get matters moving is much larger than what we ever could have reached as a diplomat or a banker. Therefore that evens out the restrictions of this position. Princess Máxima will friday afternoon open the lustrum symposium of the prince Claus pulpit in palace Noordeinde in The Hague. The symposium concerns education and research in the developing cooperation. The symposium will alsobe be attended by queen Beatrix, prince Friso and princess Mabel.

I see that no one announced the arriving of the royals. All persons in the palaces were in animated chat and no one raised to greet the royals.

A faux pas for the Household organisation!

maybe on their own request but if it was an accident it would be typical Dutch, an egalitarian society.

Anyway, it´s great to see her back. She looks stunning as always
Wel, in the Netherlands is maternity leave just 10 weeks after the birth. Spartanian method. So she isn't so cool. Every working mother here starts even earlier.

Both the Queen's outifit and Maxima's outfit look alike! Well, in the fabric.
I wish I could understand Dutch! I'd LOVE to be able to hear Maxima give her speech.

formality

Since this is something in the spirit of the wonderful (late) prince Claus, a strictly formal event would not be appropriate. It's about substance, not about standing up when royalty arrives. No faux pas at all imho.

WHOOAAA Nice neckline Maxima is soooo JUST DO IT! Simply jumps back into her role after giving birth and a maternity break and goes on with her job, doing speeches and events of all kind. If her hair is messy from time to time, so what? That's just her and I admire her for it.

Queen & Maxima in similar color outfits. Maxima seems to be glowing, great to see her back alongside the queen.

Experienced functionaries left the Household

Indeed. I think that when HM was halfway the aisle, the audience suddenly realized her arrival and stumbled up to show respect.

Recently have left the Household Organisation:
- mr. G.H.A. (Gilbert) Monod de Froideville, Master of the Ceremonies to Her Majesty The Queen;
- mrs. E.A.S. (Sophie) Crena de Iongh-den Beer Poortugael, chef de bureau for the Court Marshal to Her Majesty The Queen.
Maybe the new functionaries have not yet 'it' in the fingers.

This 'problem' can easily be solved: a functionary moves forward and says: "Dames en heren: de Koningin!" ("Ladies and gentlemen: the Queen!") and all raise. It simply must have been overlooked because this is very 'un-Beatrix' who is very precize on this sort of things.

Máxima is perfect in this outfit. Sometimes I don't like the way she dresses (too exuberant) but these last outfits were all gorgeous (imo).
Keep the good work, Maxima!

I don't trust Maxima. She talks about human rights when her father was a member of a violent government. I think all she wants is the Peace Nobel. Sorry, just my opinion.

The Princess is not searching for the Nobel Prize. She is in a position in which she can use her influence.

With all respect: I don't think you can held the Princess accountable for her father's political choices when she herself was a little schoolgirl of 5 -11 years old between 1976 and 1982.
