Both countries are organising a number of activities, including a solemn commemoration in the Ridderzaal (January 30) with possibly the Australian G-G and/or PM, Dutch authorities (PM, members of RF), and already at Oct 6 a grand exhibition of Australian stuff at the State Museum of Anthropology in Leiden. In Australia too there will be some exhibits.
It wont be the only trip to the southern hemisphere of WA and Maxima in 2006. In March they will join Queen Beatrix for a state visit to Argentina. Later this year (end November) Maxima will also visit South America.

i'm so glad they are going to south america and specially to argentina, maxima's country, as it will be their first official visit...

Stay as long as you like:)

Even though I don't pay that much attention to her, I kind of think that MAxima is one of the more intelligent CP's. She has adressed the govt and othere important entities on her field-economics. To me that is way cool.

(And off topic: I came to the US a couple of years back to study and am still here so far. :) It is a fascinating country, and absolutely gorgeous. That said, to answer your question of whether I'd stay here forever, well, I don't really know but I don't think so: I'd love to 'try' another continent next, maybe Africa, though have no idea what I'd be doing there! :)

She should be very intelligent, being vice-president of latin-american sales at the Deutsche Bank in your late twenties is quite exceptional. But as a crownprincess she shows intelligence as well, she picked her own ´niche´ and is dedicated to her causes. I have seen the documentairy about her a few months ago and I was quite impressed. The way she can talk to anybody and make people feel comfortable (like the young imprissoned girls) is really a gift.
