Great pictures of Maxima,brightly smiling and bubbly as usual,I like her a lot!
Only thing I dislike about the anp-pictures is the watermark that is planted right in the center of the pictures which is particularly annoying when it is directly in the face of our beloved Princess Maxima (or other people)!
Thanks for sharing,iceflower!

Oh,happy to see the pictures without watermark,thanks :-)
She looks so happy and mischivious in a cute way in those photographs,I really like her laugh,she is such a genuine person!
Just one question,maybe I misread something but there was written "Maxima receives stamps 1001 women" and I imagined there would be a special edition of memorial stamps /stamps to collect donations for charity?I do not follow this thread so much,so I don´t know if there is a postal stamp or if that means something else?

Also it´s true,better to have watermarked pictures than none-always think of the glass as half full,or not? Thank you,iceflower!

The other lady on that picture is Andrée van Es, a municipal executive of Amsterdam (Green Left). Although she is a republican, she was one of the people that helped in the special programme for Máxima to integrate in Dutch society, and now she is a member of the National Comittee for the inhauguration. Máxima was also escorted by Pien Zaaijer, who has been and will stay a personal advisor of the royal couple.

More info about the project from the website of the University of Amsterdam (text not copyrighted):

Quote:
The stories of famous, notorious but also forgotten women are bought back to life by Special Collections between 15 February and 20 May.

Famous, notorious, forgotten
Artists, thieves, nuns, queens, torturers, benefactors, poisoners, savants, adventurers and other peculiar women from Dutch history: once upon a time they were famous or notorious, now they’re mostly forgotten, which is a shame, as their life stories cast new light on the past. Under the editorial guidance of Els Koek, more than 300 experts describe the lives of controversial women from Dutch history from the earliest periods (ad 300) until the present in clear and comprehensible articles. The book will be officially presented at the opening of the exhibition.
Historical soul mates
The exhibition reconstructs the lives of historical women in all their variety. Visitors stroll through the pages of the voluminous book 1001 Vrouwen uit de Nederlandse Geschiedenis (1001 women from Dutch history – ed.) En route they come across the cloth with which the holy Saint Cunera was strangled, the shoes (size 55) of giant Trijntje Keever, the writing chest of Anna Maria van Schurman, Mata Hari’s bra and Hannie Schaft’s gun. Famour Dutch personalities like the journalist Aldith Hunkar, television presenter Arie Boomsma, singer Bennie Jolink, the actress Eva Laurenssen, etc. nominate their favourite historical female. The exhibition itself also acts as a bridge between the past and present by enabling visitors to go looking for their historical ‘soul mate’.

A clip by the NOS of the visit to Hoorn:

Showband Hoorn krijgt bezoek van Máxima - NOS Nieuws

To the RTL reporter the princess said that she considered it a present/gift that they were able to start this group, only with the help of volunteers. The princess started a project 1 1/2 years ago about children playing music.
