Such fantastic news! And great pictures of the glowing Maxima and beyond-thrilled Willem from Mandy!

I loved the bit about Queen Beatrix being so happy she was pratically dancing from the article Brenda posted. It seems quite uncharacteristic of the Queen who seems quite formal. But somehow it seems like something she would do when hearing such ecstatic news.

There's a video from the Press Conference on Princess Maxima's pregnancy, and I hope you enjoy it if you do watch it, but it's presented in Dutch, and I think many of you probably don't understand anything of that language as I don't...lol. It's at the link, Princess Maxima where it says Officiële bekendmaking door het prinselijk paar.

From the Franco-Iberian Royals Message board, there has been speculation that Maxima informed family and friends of her pregnancy before it was made publicly known via e-mail. But a journalist from the Business News Radio in the Netherlands somehow got their hands on the e-mail and made it public. Below is the text and translation.

The original mail:

Queridos Amigos/Amigas, Primos/Primas, Tios/Tias, etc,

Alex y yo les queriamos contar que estamos esperando una criatura para principios de Enero. Si, estoy embarazada, un shock. Pero estamos felizisimos. Es uno solo (para los que leyeron que me hice un tratamiento y espero mellizos) y no nos hicimos tratamiento. El 18 de junio a las 17 hs (hora Holandesa) lo anunciamos asique les rogamos no contar hasta ese entonces!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A las nenas, me siento orgullosisima de poder compartir tanto embarazo con ustedes. No saben lo que me tuve que comer la lengua para no contarles!!!!! Me muero por verlas!!!!

A la flia, y otro mas, aca agregamos un Zorreguieta-Cerruti mas!!!!! No lo carguen, siempre va a ser un bicho de otro pozo que no va a cazar ni una!!!! Imaginen cuando sus hijos les digan: "pero mami, habla raro!!!".

Espero que no se venga con aires de principito/a......lo estrolo contra la pared.

Millones de besos,

Alex & Max

TRANSLATION:

"Dear frends, cousins, uncles,aunts, etc:"

"Alex and I wanted to let you know that we are expecting a baby to be born at the beginning of January. Yes, I am (quite shockingly) pregnant but we are very happy. I am expecting one baby, only (for those of you who read that I was having twins after a fertilization treatment) and we did not go through any treatment. We will make the official announcement on January the 18th at 5:00 pm (local time in Holland). Please do not say anything before that!"

"To the girls: I am very proud of being able to share this pregnancy with you. You have no idea of how hard I had to bite my tongue not to say anything to you! I am dying to see you again."

"To "The Flia" and others: Here comes a new addition to the Zorregueta-Cerruti family. (using an Argentinian expression...) My baby will always be a bug from another "water well" which will never hunt anything (sorry, there is no way of translating this&#33 Imagine when your own children say to you: "But mom, He/She speaks funny!"

"I am hoping to have a normal child that does not think too much of him/herself. I'll take care of that!"

"With many kisses"

"Alex and Max"

Hi Alexandra!

I wish I could take credit for the translation, but I can't. Someone else did the translation, I have merely posted the translation.

But interesting e-mail don't you think? I found it interesting that Maxima mentioned the rumours/stories that circulated about her. I guess she does read all (or some) of the gossip and dribble written about her. And I loved how she signed the e-mail "Alex & Max" - so simple and understated. As if this baby wouldnt' be the next heir to the Netherlands!

Oh neat. Thanks Josefine. I love to see where the royals live. Willem-alexander & Maxima's house looks like quite a chunk, and I'm surprised it's off so far by itself. I thought it would have been in the city. :P

Dear Friends,


Alex and I are very happy to tell you that, if everything goes well

(and why shouldn't it???), we will have a child in the beginning of

January. Yes! I am pregnant!!! We are terribly excited and cannot

wait till that moment. Future mother is doing very well, thank God

out of the first three months dizziness/exhaustion period, still

having a hard time believing it. Future Father is amazingly proud -

but trying to realize what is REALLY happening. All types of tips

are welcome, where to buy pregnancy clothing (no tents please),

larger shoes than EVER, trollies (small-medium-large, inside the

car-out of the car), maternity nurses, nannies, yoga exercises,

pre-birth rattlers, etc. See you very soon. With lots of love,

there

Willem-Alexander and Máxima: News and Pictures (Jul 2003-May 2004)

I was in the norway royal family part of the forum and the topic turmed to maxima. Alot of people dont like saying that something abot her is fishy, even some dutch people. I like her but what do you think?
Also i was on a spanish website about maxima and they spelled her name maximum and i was just wondering if thats the spanish version and if it's pornouced like the car.

Where on the message board did you read about Maxima? this seams to be a no-no subject, interesting...i would have thought that the obviously more than detailed discussion of members of the royal family made a critical approach possible from time to time.

Perhaps I have been under the wrong impression, but I thought the Dutch were very fond of their princess. What was being said?

I am quite fond of Maxima and think she's a breath of fresh air.

I like her too. i was in Les Tribunes Royales Norway, and in "Should Marius Be Given The Title Prince?". The maxima topic started when someone said that W-A and Haakon could of pick better wives. There isnt alot of maxima in the norway forum as i thought, but i was in someother fourm( days before) and someone said that something is fishy about her and another person whose dutch said he was 'nt one of the dutch people crazy about her, that she does nothing for the people and will never speak dutch right because it's not her mother tongue. Also since her father was part of the junta(sp) blood is on her hands too. And another person said that the heir should just be dutch and not latino. But ever since her marriage to W-A, i've become more interstead in her navtie country, i was watching the movie " Evtia" today does'nt maxima remind you of her.
