I heard that Maxi and Alex really missed Amalia during their statevisit in Turkey. They just moved forward to Jordany. Is Amalia also flying over there?

Article from AD:
The European Crownprinces have known each other for years now. But after the recent marriages, a new close network has grown of future queens. Together with Mette Marit, Mathilde, Mary and Letizia, Princess Maxima has given the international royalty a new fresh image. The princesses get along very, told Maxima yesterday in Istanbul.
The princely couple talked on their last day of their visit to journalist. Maxima feels at home at the European courts. The princesses meet especially at royal weddings. “We see a lot of each other and we talk about several subjects”, says Maxima. She also gets along very fine with the newly wed wife of the Spanish crown prince. She finds it ‘very nice’ to talk in Spanish with Letizia.

According to Willem-Alexander the newly weds ask Maxima for advice. In the recent years all crown princes have married non royal brides. They are not yet familiair with royal protocol, so can need some advice. “Maxima has some experience now” says Willem-Alexander. Maxima is more modest about her advices: “Every Royal House is different and every person is different”.

Maxima has big plans with her ‘future queens’ club. “I do not rule out, that in future we are going to do something together” she says. The princesses are also starting to give each other nick names. Letizia is been called ‘Metizia’ because all the names of the other princesses start with a ‘M’.

During the three days visit. the couple is impressed by quick changes the country is going through. The Turks are looking forward to joining the European union. William Alexander did not want to comment on that, because of his position. “But we talked with several people about this. With the Prime Minister, but also with the young people from Anatolië”. Says the prince.

The couple went on this trip for the first time without Princess Amalia. “I miss her enormously, and I call a lot” tells Maxima. However, Willem-Alexander and Maxima will have to go on more trips without their little daughter in future. Especially the young mother ‘does not look forward to that’. But Willem-Alexander said that is was better to leave her at home. “It’s no use in taking her from hotel to hotel and can not see her anyway”.

Yes. Excellent article. I like that. Metizia. Funny they named her that. It works. After all, Letizia itself was a misspelling.

He he ... That's not fair to Letizia. How come the others - beginning with Maximia - didn't name themselves with "L/s" ?

As anside, you figure WA would have connected with Maxima, if her name had been 'Minima' ?

Beginning with the L's
- Lette Marit, or Lette-Lerit
- Lathilde,
- Lary
- Letizia naturally, and
- Laxima

Yeah ... I can 'see' them having laughed themselves silly about what I just presented. Imagine they would all think Mary is then a guy, and I wonder if they would have picked up on Laxima being too close to a laxative?

Correct me if I am mistaken, but I have heard rumors that Maxima is not happy in her marriage to Willem?? Is there any truth to this??
You live in Germany perhaps?? Don&#39;t believe that magazines. There is nothing going on. They love each other. [/b][/quote]
No, I live in the USA. I had heard from some that Maxima, was unhappy during a royal show here on TV. That is why I asked.

Thank you for clearing up the misconception&#33;

yes "laxative" was my first thought, when I read Laxima. Metizia sounds nice anyway...nice to see that these crown princesses have such a great and silly humour

Laxima&#33; Ha ha ha. That does sound like a laxative product. Lette-Marit is good though. But Larry does not sound good. Latthilde is a good name. I mean I had not heard of it before but it sounds reasonable.

Here&#39;s an English translation of the interview with Willem-Alexander and Maxima on their last day in Turkey. It&#39;s very interesting&#33;

small?? what?? I thought it was perfect. It&#39;s just above the knee & this was a daytime event. Besides how tall is she? When I wear a skirt it has to be just above the knee or floor length otherwise I look like a smurf because I&#39;m 5&#39;3" tall.

In the video it looked much better than in the photo, where it just looked like it should be a bit looser for that style.
