I think it's been a meeting only and no exhibition that needed much space. But I'm not familiar with the rooms of the Rijksmuseum.

Here are some more pics:

The other lady in the picture is Jvr. Alexandra Jankovich de Jeszenice. According to the caption she is one of the best friends of the princess. She also is one of the godparents of princess Alexia.

Jankovich is a managing director of media company Spark & Co and married to guitarist Martien Oster. The company organised the meeting at the museum.

It seems that the princess is still not wearing her wedding ring, or any other ring for that matter. On one of the pictures her middle finger seems blue, so maybe she has a small accident?

2,03 km is no laughing matter; you really have to be trained for it.I used to be a gymnast, but not sure I'd be able to swim the distance (at least, in a good time) without any training beforehand.

Good luck to Maxima and all the other participants; they are doing it for a very worthy cause.

Looks like she had the best support - a loving husband and three adorable young ladies.

Wow! I had already been impressed by Crown Princess Mary's charity swimming, but that Máxima has now done it as well, impresses me even more.

The cause was to raise money for research of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). A lot of other Dutch celebrities and Olympians were swimming too.

At the finished the prince of Orange and her 3 daughters were waiting for her.

Máxima volbrengt zwemtocht grachten - AT5 Nieuws

They swam 2 kilometers, from the Maritime museum, over the Amstel river to the Keizersgracht. The water is very dirty so kuddos for them for swimming there. Anybody with wounds was advised to get an injection against tetanus.

The chairman of the City Swim is Marc ter Haar, one of the witnesses of the civil wedding of Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima.

Has it become a new trend for Crown Princesses to swim in canals?

Good grief, we may have to put a leash on the other CP's to prevent them from jumping into canals.

Anyway, well done Maxima.
She's one of my favorite CP's simply because of her positive spirit.

According to RTL Boulevard princess Máxima has trained for this in Eindhoven with professional swimmers: Olympic gold medallist Pieter van den Hoogenband and his trainer Jacco Verhaeren. According to Verhaeren they also filmed the princess while swimming, to give her better tips about the technique. Verhaeren says that she already swims on a regular basis.

The princess only trained in Eindhoven once, for 1 1/2 hours and continued it in a pool closer to home.

In the clip Princess Alexia says that she is 'super proud' of her mother.
