Yes, I really think that they will announce the second pregnancy of Maxima. The last month she looks a little bit uhmm..bigger

But it is of course still possible that she just eated too much 'poffertjes' and other delicious things. And that Willem-Alexander and Maxima just give a press conference to announce that Amalia can walk. :p

If they are going to announce the expected birth of a second child I like that would be really studpid. They can easily wait untill the new year and not interrupt the official mourning period.

You're right. They are disrespecting Prince Bernhard and the mourning period with this interruption. Maxima is still going to be pregnant in January so why not wait and announce it then when it is more respectful.

Before jumping to conclusions that she may or may not be pregnant, why is it so impossible to believe that perhaps the press conference is the thank the Dutch people during their time of tragedy?

Why would it be disrespectful? Life goes on and life is for the living. I think what is more important is how you treat someone when they are alive, not how you mourn.

That may be the case with the "regular" people, but these are royals who follow certain protocol. I agree with you, Ennyllorac, but royals more often than not, follow rules even if they don't make much sense.

lets just wait and see, it has to be something else but I cannot think what.

the thanking will probably be done first and foremost by the queen.

the announcing of the expected birth of second child: if willem alexander has a single complaint it is that he does not want his life to be a docu-drama, so it would be easy for them to keep it within the family until next month.

mourning well is an essential part of healing and being able to get on and enjoy your life. It is not about how they treated bernhard during his life it is about their getting over their personal loss.

& it is important that they follow a certain protocol, one that we personally do not have to. Beatrix understands that and insists more on it than her mother did.

I heard it on the radio. They said the RVD confirmed the story. But I'm not sure the radio was right. Well, it is (almost) for sure that she is pregnant, government sources confirmed the pregnancy of Maxima, according de Telegraaf. :)

It is up to the Queen to decide there will an announcement for Christmas or not. Of course princess Maxima has to be three months pregnant before they can announce it.

They say that according to somes members of the government, Maxima is pregnant and expecting her second baby for the summer of 2005.

It not official yet, as she's not yet thirteen weeks pregnant, and we'll have to wait for the confirmation until then.

from the BRMB

The meeting with some members of the press (tomorrow) has been cancelled by WA & Maxima, who are both angry & annoyed by all these speculations Article (in Dutch) from AD:
-----


*Willem-Alexander en Máxima zijn boos
Van een onzer verslaggevers

Prins Willem-Alexander en prinses Máxima hebben een afspraak met journalisten voor morgen afgezegd na het bericht in de Telegraaf dat Máxima opnieuw in verwachting is. Het paar is boos op de krant en heeft geen zin in verdere vragen over een zwangerschap.

Willem-Alexander en Máxima zouden morgen een ontmoeting hebben met leden van de vereniging verslaggevers Koninklijk Huis. Bij een eerdere bijeenkomst in juni 2003 maakte Máxima zelf bekend dat ze zwanger was. Vroegtijdige berichtgeving ligt erg gevoelig bij het paar, omdat de eerste zwangerschap van Máxima niet zonder problemen verliep. Door een complicatie moest de prinses wekenlang het bed houden. Bovendien is de koninklijke familie nog in rouw wegens het overlijden van prins Bernhard.
