susan_alicia, they were suffering very much, in that situation why would people should stand up? The kings are made to serve their People and not the contrary.
In Spain, after the March.11, nobody stand up while Queen Sofia and Letizia offers their hands to people in the Church.
I'm sorry to say this, I don't want to offend you but your message is a very insensible post.

to Regina - I disagree with you that Susan Alicia´s remark was insensible. Women do not need to stand up when they are addressed, but men are required to stand up when someone addresses them, especially if the other person is a woman or older than them. It is a general rule of behaviour and followed in all Christian states. One´s wellbeing is irrelevant in such cases.

If you were one of this victims, I'm sure that the last thing you would remember is to stand up... Princess Máxima is not the kind of persons who care about those things in times of pain.
And Merca, thank you but I don't need your explanations about Protocol in Christian States, I was not talking to you

regina, merca,

trust me, it looked really embarressing on tv. I felt for the royals and I am not always so sympathetic. If those who could, would have stood up they would have shown dignity, now they looked pathetic and rude.

When the royal is approaching the commoner, the commoner doesn't always stand. Especially in times of grief and illness this can be seen. I've seen Elizabeth greet commoners in times of grief or illness and they don't stand and she doesn't appear to take offence. I don't think any of the Oranges took offence at this, either.

too bad then, about the not standing. (I think everyone should stand when approached, by a royal or a commoner)
the royals do not take offence because they (usually) have perfect manners.

re being so sad and not able to stand:
remember pictures, tv images of jacqueline kennedy at the funeral of her husband, she did not cry even though it was visible through her veil that she was griefstricken and she walked straight as a arrow.

from BRMB:

Máxima will visit Uganda and Kenya Feb 21/25 in het capacity as UN advisor in the area of microcredit. Besides her short visit to New York, to be installed as such, it will be her first independent official foreign visit. Ironically Pr mathilde will be in Africa at the same time, in Mali...

RVD:(dutch)

21/02/05Werkbezoek Prinses Máxima aan Uganda en Kenia


Hare Koninklijke Hoogheid Prinses Máxima der Nederlanden brengt van maandag 21 tot en met vrijdag 25 februari een werkbezoek aan Uganda en Kenia. Zij doet dit als lid van de Groep van Adviseurs voor het Internationale Jaar van het Microkrediet. Zij zal er spreken met politici, vertegenwoordigers van Centrale Banken, (micro-)financieringsinstellingen en ondernemers. Het bezoek van de Prinses sluit deels aan bij dat van de minister voor Ontwikkelingssamenwerking, die in deze periode Uganda, Kenia en Tanzania bezoekt met een handelsdelegatie. Deze delegatie staat onder verantwoordelijkheid van de ministeries van Buitenlandse Zaken en Economische Zaken.

De Prinses spreekt tijdens haar verblijf in Kampala onder meer met de Ugandese minister van Financiën, met vertegenwoordigers van de Bank of Uganda en met vertegenwoordigers van microfinancieringsorganisaties en hun klanten. Tijdens haar bezoek aan Nairobi spreekt zij met de Gouverneur van de Central Bank of Kenya en verder onder meer met vrouwelijke ondernemers. Ook zal zij twee microfinancieringsinstellingen bezoeken. In de gesprekken zal de nadruk liggen op de ontwikkeling van de financiële sector en hoe die toegankelijker kan worden voor een groter deel van de bevolking, bijvoorbeeld via regelgeving. In beide hoofdsteden voert zij enkele van de gesprekken samen met de minister voor Ontwikkelingssamenwerking, mevrouw A.M.A. van Ardenne-van der Hoeven.

Microkrediet staat voor financiering van kleinschalige bedrijvigheid in ontwikkelingslanden: kleine leningen aan ondernemers. De Groep van Adviseurs fungeert dit jaar als een denktank op het gebied van microkrediet. De 17 leden ervan zijn allen afkomstig uit de financiële sector. De Prinses zoekt met de andere adviseurs naar oplossingen voor het nijpende tekort aan kleinschalige financiële dienstverlening in ontwikkelingslanden. Vele miljoenen mensen zijn nog steeds buitengesloten van de financiële sector en daarmee geblokkeerd in hun streven naar economische zelfstandigheid en ontwikkeling.

Sinds de jaren zeventig zet een groeiend aantal internationale organisaties zich met toenemend succes in voor armoedebestrijding en ontwikkeling door financiële dienstverlening aan armen en mensen met een laag inkomen. Inmiddels is microkrediet verschaft aan tientallen miljoenen mensen, veelal vrouwen, die zich door ondernemerschap aan armoede willen ontworstelen. Die zijn echter het topje van de ijsberg, want zij vormen nog geen 10 procent van de mensen die gebaat zouden zijn met deze vorm van dienstverlening. Het model werkt, maar de behoefte is veel groter dan het huidige aanbod. De Algemene Vergadering van de Verenigde Naties heeft 2005 uitgeroepen tot Internationaal Jaar van het Microkrediet, in de hoop en verwachting dat regeringen, banken, bedrijven en niet-gouvernementele organisaties samen een grote sprong voorwaarts zullen maken op dit gebied. Zij sluit daarbij aan op een van de Millenniumdoelstellingen op ontwikkelingsgebied: halvering van de wereldwijde armoede voor 2015. De Prinses wordt bij haar reis naar Afrika vergezeld door de twee andere Nederlandse adviseurs, drs. Marilou van Golstein Brouwers, directeur Internationale Fondsen bij Triodos Bank, en Jhr.drs. Diederik Laman Trip, oud-bestuursvoorzitter van ING Nederland.
