Princess Máxima is awarded the Machiavelli Award 2011 due to her communicative skills with all layers of society and thus enhancing the cohesion between the Royal House and the people while at the same time giving the Monarchy a fresh brush of paint....or rather a more modern face....

Previous winners of the Machiavelli Award were,ao,her uncle Pieter van Vollenhoven and the Inland Revenue Service,tante tax....

Queen Beatrix, Crown Princess Máxima and Crown Prince Willem-Alexander attended an extraordinary
meeting of the council of state (Raad van State) to mark the farewell of Mr. Tjeenk Willink as Vice
President in Den Haag today, January 25, 2012.

Tjeenk Willink had his 70th birthday and therefore retires. In his role as vice president he was a key
adviser to Queen Beatrix. He coached the integration of Máxima from 2001 to 2004 and has largely c
ontributed to the education of Willem-Alexander. He is also godfather of Princess Amalia, so the ties
to the royal family are quite close.

I have a weak spot for the hat, something that Queen Juliana or princess Beatrix could have worn in the 60-ties.

Nice to see that they all turned up for the farewell of mr. Tjeenk Willink (who is a godfather of Princess Catharina Amalia).
