No, I thought that was Marc van der Linden.
This is Evert Santegoeds:

I'm glad the princess won the case. Those stupid gossip magazines make up things all the time.

The caption of Newscom is not right. These pictures are old (2003/2004?).

Maxima always speaks Dutch, unless there is some other reason for her to do otherwise (like with foreign guests she's speaking to at state visits and things like that). But at normal Dutch press conferences she always speaks Dutch (as far as I know). She mastered the language very well, though she has still a very cute Argentinian accent. :)

new event of Princess Maxima with Princess Mathilde

from http://www.koninklijkhuis.nl/content.jsp?objectid=14128

Princess Máxima and Princess Mathilde will attend reception for two parts of History of Dutch Literature on 23 February 2006

HRH Princess Máxima of the the Netherlands and HRH Princess Mathilde of Belgium will attend on Thursday, 23 February, in the Grote Kerk in Breda two parts of the new History of the Dutch Literature' in reception.

More than 50 year after its appearing of the Handbook till the history of the Dutch literature of Knuvelder comes there a complete new opgezette history of the literature from the Netherlands and Flanders now. This History of the Dutch Literature has been written as a doorlopend chronologically tell that recent discoveries and new scientific understandings contain. The new literature history is not only for a scientific public written, but especially also for the general public that in literature interested is.

Princess Máxima and Princess Mathilde take the first and the last part of the new History of the Dutch Literature in reception. Votes on writing, written through Frits of Oostrom, treats the middle Ages till the invention of the book pressure art. In Always again birds that nests begin describes Hugo Brems the Dutch literature from the period 1945-2000. The five remaining parts appeared between now and 2010.

The Histories of the Dutch Literature is an initiative of the Dutch language union that in 1997 has been started with this project on advice of the Council for the Dutch Language and Letter. At the surveys work, prominent Dutch and Flemish scientists and 26 editors bow work with. The head editing is in hands of Dr. A. J. Gelderblom (University Utrecht) and professor. Dr. A. M. Musschoot (University Ghent).

Yes, I think it's great, I love to see my two favourite princesses together. :) I never would have thought to learn something about my own literature through the forums, by the way. I should be well informed about the whole Dutch literature thing (it's my major, after all) but I was all like: 'Huh, have they already finished the book?!' I knew they where working on it (soms profs I have in college may have contributed as well, I don't know...) but I didn't realize that it was already finished. Yay, the Royal Forums keep you updated on your own major! How nice is that? Thanks, purple!

Now it's about time I go to the store and buy The history of Dutch literature! But first I have to find a pot of gold...

they both bring their fresh passion for the dutch language to this event. they both worked very hard to master the language at a later age.

Do most Belgians learn French and Dutch or do they typcially speak only one of these languages fluently?

my impression is that neither walloons nor flemish learn each others languages paricularly well. though i think the flemish do better at learning french than vice versa.

Mathilde was a french speaker and basically had to learn dutch as an adult for her royal role and i think she's fairly typical for most walloons of her generation.

not to annoy the walloons here, but their dutch is either VERY bad or they are to arrogant to use it (according to my flemish relatives -who speak fluently french- it is a combination of the two).

i also look really really forward to the visit. maxima and mathilde are also my favourite princesses and i think they do a great duo: they seem to like the same things, are involved in similar things and both take a really active role in their respectives societies. they also seem to have a strong relationship... i read here in the forum that it was belgium where maxima first stayed after the engagement with willem to learn protocol and useful skills for her future role as princess.

after dating WA for about a year she transferred to Deutsche bank's office in Brussels to be closer to him. but she moved to holland finally after the engagement got anounced.

laurentien and constantijn live in brussels right now.

I believe the engagement party for Willem-Alexander and Maxima was held in Belgium as well (in order for the Zorreguietta's to attend without causing more trouble then there already was), which was also attended by Mathilde and Phillipe.

And to Pollyemma: you can judge for yourself if it is arrogance or ignorance when you are moving to Brussels (are you becoming a eurocrat?)...be frim and don't give in to the walloons, go for it! :P

Marengo and pollyemma thank you for your explanations. I know that it is difficult to learn another language as an adult. My attempts at learning Spanish are still stalled at a rather poor level.

The Belgian Royal Family would have to know both languages well in order to represent their nation. From what I've read here the younger generation speaks both French and Dutch fluently.
