Everybody is entitled to their own opinion here, and part of what makes discussions interesting is that everyone does hold different opinons about various subject matter.

Let's refrain from saying anyone else's opinon is "clueless" or otherwise just because we do not agree with it.

I thought that Maxima looked nice. It was one of her better recent fashion choices, IMO. I liked Laurentien's suit as well. However, as you believe that Maxima's hat was inapproriate, I believe that Laurentien's shoes were really too sexy for a funeral. I loved them, but I don't think that I would wear them to a funeral.

stand by my email and by the way it was put.

Did not mind when Hannelore attacked me personally by calling me childish (in stead of for instance calling my behaviour childish. It said more about her than about me.
But there was no moderator comments on that.
At least I have the good sense to call someones opinion clueless.

when it is cold she has to wear a coat, seems logical to me.

As you can see in the pictures above she is a radiant, healthy woman, not obese, just not skinny. It is more important to be healthy and fit than to diet so much that you become too skinny for your body type and harm yourself.

you can never blaim a child for whatever their parents did. Read an interesting article in the daily telegraph about how the french are sorry about how they treated the children of french women with german soldiers, conceived during the ww II. The children often had to move to different villages and were bullied and humiliated by their teachers for no fault of their own.

the only thing maxima did wrong (in my opinion) is when she said that she believes her father when he says he knew nothing about the wrong doings (to put it mildly) of the videla regime. I have young collegues of the age of maxima who are conservative to dutch standerds (they vote VVD) and heard them joking "yes, zorregieta (maxima's father) thought that when the army threw young people out of helicopters in the middle of the ocean, they were going on swimming excercise.
Maxima could have found a way, with all those wonderfull advisers she has around her, to say something better, more decent.

Looking at the recent pictures of Maxima, I really wish she would do something with her hair. I like it when she wears it up or puts a bit of a curl in it. But in today's picture it just looks so stringy and unkept.

I wish the same too.I think if she has dark blonde hair it would really suit her.

BIG NEWS:

Next Tuesday pressconference Willem-Alexander and Maxima. They have to bring important news, allthough the family is still mourning.

Royaltywatcher says it means only one thing: they will announce the expected birth of a second child!!!

AMEN and sing it sister. Her makeup in the above photos is also just lovely (sometimes I think she gets a bit nuts with the mascara clumps) and the outfit is somber and fits both the occasion and the fact that the family is in mourning.

I do agree with posts about her hair, though. It's lovely and seems thick, but it would look much better if she evened it up a bit, the ragged ends might make her feel like it's growing out faster or that it's longer...but it does look unkempt and unprofessional. As a business woman (and basically that's what a CP is nowadays) she should straighten it up a bit...

But I do adore her...she's the most "normal" built of the CPs, I think. One of us...And here's hoping the press conference is good news. A baby would rock.

(I even like the stringy and unkept hair on those pictures, it balances the black clothes with pearls. On formal occasions her hair is done beautifully, so when the occasion warrants it, she is able to deliver)
