No offense to anyone, but 'bump' sounds really immature and/or trashy...that's the sorta talk peeps pick up in trashy tabloid magazines...there really isn't a good connatation (sp?) to 'bump' either.

Anyway, this board isn't about Bumps, or Bruises! IT'S ABOUT ROYAL PEOPLE! So, I'll talk about royal people...and ask a question....

If Willem and Maxima have a girl first, will the girl be queen, even if she has a YOUNGER BROTHER after she's born?????

It refers to a region in the mountains between Spain and France, so you have the French Basque (oohlala) and the Spanish Basque. The ones I knew were all sheephearders, but they had some purdy mean Basque terrorists for awhile too but I haven't heard much about them lately.

From the Benelux Royals message board, posted by henri m.:

Another unofficial visit:

Last week Princess Máxima of the Netherlands visited a primary school in Almere (near Amsterdam) where the project 'Together to school' is in force. The project aims to get children with the Down Syndrome or phychically/mentally handicapped children together on schools with 'normal' children instead of placing them in special schools.

After the lunch the Princess made private visits to some parents with disabled children and talked with them about their experiences.

You are refering to ETA, and they are still operating, just this summer there were some explosions in southern Spain that they claimed.

16 SEPTEMBER 2003
Princess Maxima of the Netherlands was the vision of a radiant mum-to-be on Tuesday as she joined her mother-in-law, Queen Beatrix, at the opening the Parliamentary Year in the Hague.

The 32-year-old royal, who is expecting her first child in January, 2004, opted for an outfit in line with her famed vibrant style as she watched the queen make her traditional annual speech at the Hall of Knights. A bright pink dress and pillbox hat was the ensemble of choice for the royal engagement, her growing bump peeking through the folds of her matching overcoat.

Meanwhile, the queen elected to wear a green patterned gown and feathered hat for the stately occasion, which marks the presentation of the government's 2004 budget.

The Argentine-born princess and her husband, Crown Prince Willem-Alexander, announced in June that they were expecting an heir to the throne. The couple tied the knot in February, 2002, in an Amsterdam wedding attended by more than 2,000 illustrious guests

Yeah, I've noticed, especially since my daughter needed extensive orthodontic work done. Maybe bad teeth are becoming a sign of high class, just like a suntan and jeans with holes.

Was announced today by RVD that doctors advised Princess Maxima to stop working. They don't revealed the reason of this advise Because of this, she wont travel to st Petersburg, on 23/24 September, with Prince Willem-Alexander like was sheduale.

The official from the Royal House web site:

"Prinses Máxima legt haar werkzaamheden voorlopig neer

De Rijksvoorlichtingsdienst deelt mede:
Hare Koninklijke Hoogheid Prinses Máxima der Nederlanden moet op advies van haar behandelende artsen haar werkzaamheden voorlopig neerleggen. Moeder en kind maken het volgens de artsen overigens goed.

Het eerste officiële optreden van Prinses Máxima zou van 23-24 september samen met de Prins van Oranje een werkbezoek zijn aan St. Petersburg. De Prinses blijft nu in Nederland, de Prins maakt de reis alleen.

RVD, 20.09.2003, 18.30 uur
"

I wope that isn't nothing serious with her pregnancie, she looked to tired and her belly looked so big in the Prinsjesdag
