Yes...Royals are human beings, after all!

According to the royalblog.nl Party has excused itself for posting those pictures. If I read correctly they will pay for damages.

They feel the heat coming because they know they will loose the lawsuit and try to escape for a nickel by making an excuse to the Prince and the Princesses.

What I really don't get is: is the amount of sold magazines worth a lawsuit? I mean, it's not a picture of Máxima cheating on the Prince or topless in the beach, so why risk themselves so much in first place?? tsk tsk

Any simple fresh new picture of Princess Máxima with the princesses, combined with 'inside information' like "Princess Máxima days and nights at poor Princess Ariane's bed" makes the sales go mad.

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 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.

Well said, Henri M. The Princess could NOT be judged for what her father had done...even if she would have a full grown -up person. I think your father could be a Communist and yourself a Liberal, or vice-versa...Or your father a Communist and yourself a Royalist. Princess Maxima IS NOT responsible for her father's act; only for what she does or think.

Vanesa.

Don't start that please !

At the time of the engagement, there were plenty of comments like this.
Maxima is not responsible and is doing her job very well

{personal comments deleted - Elspeth}Her father is her father and the past has nothing to do with our present day Máxima.She was a child then and has condemned that period over and over and not just because she "had to" but because she means it.And as for a Nobel Prize?Hope she gets one eventually,SHE has the brains,but alltogether it wouldn't matter to her personally,as long as the work she does shows results.That's better then any prize to her.

{deleted for consistency - Elspeth}I have the right to trust or distrut whoever I wish. I think Máxima is a Dutch Princess, so she should be more concerned with Dutch people, and not with people who live so far away from The Netherlands. There are better qualified people who can do that.
Princess Mary is making a wonderful job against bullying in Danish schools and Máxima should be like this.
{deleted for consistency - Elspeth} Thanks

I respect your point but another view point could be she wants to do a difference, i mean, she has seen what her father has done wrong etc & wants to do better. Doesnt mean if her father was a bad person, or did bad means she is too

{deleted for consistency - Elspeth}while i respect your opinion, i need to clarify a couple of points that are nonsense to me. for example, no royal ever received a nobel peace price. what makes you think maxima is expecting a nobel peace price for her? why would she need it? her mentions as godwill ambassador to the un or as advisor to the un are in my opinion way more important, for her and probably for the rest of the world as well.

second point: how silly is to blame on a little girl of less than 10 years old what happened with her father's involvement in argentina. i suppose as an argentinian that you are, you should know that maxima's father, mr. jorge zorreguieta, was only involved 2 years with the government, when a normal post at the government lasts for 4. it's obvious mr. zorreguieta didn't want to get involved in what was happening and left the ministry, being the gentleman he is. and even if jorge zorreguieta was a monster and commited lots of crimes against humanities (which he didn't, as the dutch court determined when all his actions were investigated before maxima's wedding), maxima is no one to blame for.

and third and last...

what makes you think maxima isn't involved in activities in the netherlands? the fact she went to give a speech in london, because the financial inclusion congress was held there? maxima went there as an advisory board member in the financial sector to the UN. as you may or may not know, the nertherlands is part of the united nations and maxima's involvement with international organisations shows her capacity to act in high level activities rather than simply cutting bows and holding flowers in meetings. i'm personally very glad maxima takes part in international activities to make the world a better place. her involvement with the microcredits, to mention an example, was a great success which caused substantial benefit to those in the programme, with whom maxima got directly involved...

... and this time it wasn't her who won the nobel peace price, but muhammad yunus, the economist who invented them. what other reward would be better than helping a nobel peace laureate be so succesful in developing third world countries?

and to your knowledge, mary of denmark took the idea of the anti-bullying programme from one she supports in her home country, australia. bad point to make proof of how maxima should work in the netherlands, which she does: as far as i know maxima only supports programmes of the netherlands and of the united nations.
