I do love Maxima, she is a lovely intelligent lady, who seems always genuinly interested in the things she does. Only one thing.... is there anyone who can tell her to do something with her hair. Oh dear it looks really bad on the last photo's, it looks "i have just come out of my bed and didn't have time to comb it" what a pity

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.

Thank you, thank you so much for posting these videos! She sounds a little strange for an Argentinian, maybe it´s the influence of Dutch. Let´s not forget she studied Economics, but she has obviously prepared herself on this particular subject..

Very well done, Máxima! I really liked to hear the princess talking about this topic. She's not only well prepared as she seems to really Believe in what she's saying. This is not a hobby for her, but something she cares a lot. I hope she continues like this.

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...

Our Crown Jewel sounds a little strange?I dare say,her english is better then one can expect,not the nasal nagging yankee sound,but wonderfull english.Ofcourse there's a little accent to it,it only adds to the charm wouldn't you think?See,so do I.

Prepared on this particular subject??My dear,HRH is an Internationally acclaimed EXPERT on the subject.No harm done if posters
are as well prepared on what they think they know,than HRH is in her own field.

Just a slight hint after hundreds of posts everywhere on the subject.
Nespresso anyone?

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.

"Our Crown Jewel sounds a little strange?"

Strange for an ARGENTINIAN, who is supposed to have a slight Spanish accent. I didn´t mean she speaks a strange English. She doesn´t sound American nor British to me, but something else.

"No harm done if posters are as well prepared on what they think they know,than HRH is in her own field."


Sure, if i´d live day and night on the forum i would be an expert on Princess Maxima´s activities, but as i have so many other important things to do i only come from time to time. You should ignore the repeated posts and not bother to answer.

grinning......Retirement comes with many perks,one of 'm being to classify matters previously important to a non-importance of sorts...
