You bet!

I remember how much I liked her clothes in her beggining, like those beautiful scarfs she used to take and the so pretty dress she used in her engagement.

We don't know much of her.
She is Ottoline Antoinette ('Lieke') Gaarlandt van Voorst van Beesd, aged 59 and since 1993 Hofdame in the personal service of Her Majesty The Queen. There are six Hofdames, under supervision of the Grandmastress (the Mistress of the Robes).

She studied French language and literature in Leyden University, in the same period as Queen Beatrix. She became a lecturer and an editor of Netherlands-French dictionaries and married with the owner of the Amsterdam-based publisher Balans, specialized in books on politics, history, arts and sciences. Her spouse comes from a family which has delivered a handful of majors and a governor, so is entangled in the governing elite of the country. She and her husband live in Wassenaar, the residential municipality where also the royal domain 'De Horsten' ('The Eyries') is located, housing Prince Willem-Alexander's villa 'Eikenhorst' ('The Eyrie in the Oakwoods').

Thanks mandyy. Maxima looks lovely, I like her outfit and her hair looks nicer than it has done in a while- there seems to be more volume

Today the world has embraced new royal Princesses in the form of Mary of Denmark and Maxima of the Netherlands. But it's questionable whether even these hugely popular, increasingly glamorous future Queens will ever capture the world's imagination in the same way as Diana.
As Mario acknowledges: "She really was a true Princess".

I really like her last 2 evening outfits: the leopard print (with simple brown dress, stockings and shoes) and the green and black patterned coat (with simple black dress, stockings and shoes). She sometimes piles on too many things at one time, but I think she got these two outfits right: an eye-catching piece with the rest of the outfit simple.

I also think her hair was much better in those photos. Maybe she was just trying harder with her hair since they were evening events?

I agree. It's very eyecatching and it's bold like her, but it isn't too OTT.

I must say I am impressed by the amount of public engagements the Princess has lately, she seems to be doing more instead of less of them.

I like the coat and the hair seems tamed to. Didn't she already wear this for the opening of her sisters exhibition of paintings last year?
