They said he spoke Spanish the entire time, during the two and a half hours they visited the couple. That implies that he is able to converse and understand Spanish at a reasonable level. I am not sure if that is the same as being fluent in it though.

Oh my, I really do not like that last outfit of hers. The mustard yellow does not go well at all with the other colors that she is wearing. In fact, I don't think it goes very well with the tone of her skin either. She should always wear warm or hot colors I think.

Ah well. In the end the only thing that really matters is that she does a fabulous job as a princess, and still manages to retain quite a bit of her own flair, while not overshadowing the rest of the royal family.

HRH was on a working visit to the Defense Women Network at Soesterberg yesterday tuesday december 2nd.HRH was informed on the Defence policies on the role of women in the forces.

The Network aims at enhancing a close link between women serving in the armed forces,to exchange experiences and problems they meet while on missions in post-conflict areas abroad or at home.

The Princess Máxima Polo Cup (organized by the Ladie's Polo Association) starts tomorrow in Buenos Aires.

HRH won´t be here for it because of her agenda, but allowed the use of her name for the tournament anyway, since a percentage of the money goes to a charity - chosen by the Princess.

I must say what I really in Máxima is that she works a lot, she has events almost everyday. Good for the Dutch people :) and good for all of us who can see her. I like these two last outfits, especially the grey one.

I agree with most of you. princess Maxima is my favourite CP. She is an extrovert engaging person who does a lot and always with a smile on her face, besides being a marvelous Mother. Being from Brasil, I understand her feelings when faced by facts who were, to say the least awful. Good point for her to be open to see the Madres, receive the book, etc...For Europeans who didn´t live through these facts, it´s difficult to understand the nuances that existed at the time...

Ashelen, I know Princess Maxima is from Argentina. What I was trying to say is that I, being a Brazilian (a country who went through similar turmoils as Argentina did), could understand what it is to have to face to those awful times.
