I like Maxima's haircut, makeup, outfit - altogether great. She seems to be darkening her hair color, and maybe growing out the roots. If she is darkening her hair (and it's not my imagination), I like the color better than the pale blond her hair was heading towards before. The hair color seems more honey-colored, more natural, and flattering.

Everyone looks very happy and relaxed. As a follower of British royalty as well, it's strange to me to see Queen Beatrix stepping aside for part of the photocall so that the focus is WA, Maxima and Amalia. I can't imagine Queen Elizabeth II, or any of the other senior royals, stepping aside and shifting the focus to lower-ranking royals (except for weddings or something like that). Beatrix looks so much the proud grandmother, and happy, and not worried about seniority protocols. Very nice!

Article from TELEGRAAF.nl :

HILVERSUM - Het integratieproces moet positiever worden benaderd, aldus prinses Máxima maandagavond in het tv-programma NOVA. "Er is zoveel te halen in de verschillende culturen in Nederland. Er gaat zoveel mis qua onbegrip en misverstanden. Wij moeten gewoon de rijkdom van integratie willen zien."

Prinses Máxima wijst ook min of meer op de eigen verantwoordelijkheid van allochtonen bij hun integratie. "Het gaat om jouw eigen energie en jouw eigen wilskracht om mee te doen. Want ik ken ook mensen en meisjes die het heel goed hebben en alle mogelijkheden krijgen en toch zeggen: ja maar ik mis mijn land..." De prinses beveelt een andere opstelling aan: " Ik grijp mijn kans en ik voel me thuis. Ik vind het heerlijk om hier te zijn en probeer meer en meer met Nederland mee te doen."

Ze wil zich ook in de toekomst, na haar werk voor de PAVEM ten behoeve van allochtone vrouwen, op integratie richten: "Ik ben zelf ook een allochtoon. Heel veel vrouwen kijken naar mij en denken: jij moest ook de taal leren. Ze kunnen zich deels met mij identificeren." De prinses realiseert zich wel duidelijk dat haar situatie vanaf het begin af heel anders was dan van veel anderen.

Juist door haar positie kan ze veel doen: "Er is een rol voor de monarchie als symbool van eenheid, om mensen samen te brengen. Ik wil graag een bijdrage leveren aan de integratie van allochtonen. Ik denk dat ik kan helpen. Ik ben a-politiek, blijf boven de politieke sfeer." De prinses denkt dat ze partijen nader tot elkaar kan brengen.

De prinses, die zegt zich thuis te voelen in ons land, wil zich richten op de jongere allochtonen. "Ik denk dat de problemen van de eerste of tweede generatie heel duidelijk zijn, de derde generatie is lastiger. Je bent niet het ene maar ook niet het andere."

I tried to see the interview on Nova's site but can't get it to play. The box comes up but nothing happens. Is anyone else having this problem? Anyone know how I can get the video to play? Thanks!

article from expatica:

Princess stresses positive
side to integration process


15 February 2005

AMSTERDAM — Both the Dutch government and immigrants must respond more positively to integration, Argentinean-born Princess Maxima said on Monday night.

Speaking on television show Nova in her first in-depth interview, Princess Maxima said the Dutch government must recognise that there is more to gain from the richness of cultural differences.

"So much goes wrong as regards ignorance and misunderstandings. Simply, we must want to see the richness of integration," she said.

But she also said new arrivals need to be more open towards the process of integration, asserting further that immigrants should not remain on the sidelines and instead accept their responsibility, public news service NOS reported.

Princess Maxima said she understands the situation faced by immigrants. "I myself am an immigrant. But ultimately it is all about your own energy, your own will power. You must not continue to live in your own circle," she said.

Pointing out that she "took her chances", Maxima is trying to "take part" in the Netherlands. Rather than always missing their land of origin, immigrants must make a go of it in the Netherlands.

Admitting that she is not in the same position as most immigrants, Maxima stressed that her special position means she can achieve many things. "I am apolitical, so I can help to bring the parties together," she said.

Deeply interested in social cohesion, the princess envisions for herself a pivotal role in efforts to improve integration, asserting that the monarchy is a symbol of unity.

Maxima intends to focus in the future on third generation migrants: "The third generation is somewhat more troublesome because these people are a little bit in between [their ancestral culture and the Netherlands]".

Previously, she served as a member of the PaVEM Commission, which advises the government on integration issues affecting immigrant women. The commission, which was established in July 2003, will be disbanded in the summer and municipal councils will be asked to implement its findings.

Although she wants to continue working on the issue of integration, Maxima, who is pregnant, also said in the coming two years she intends to focus much of her time on daughter Princess Amalia and her second child, whose birth is due mid-summer.

Maxima has now officially completed her own integration process, having spent time with 110 Dutch institutes and companies.

And she now feels at home in the Netherlands, having first arrived here in August 1999. Maxima remembers the neatness and the amount of flowers the country displayed, while a woman on a bike, with two children and groceries also made an immediate impression.

But the princess — who married Crown Prince Willem-Alexander in Amsterdam in February 2002 — can no longer go about unnoticed in public. She is not prepared to hide though, saying that previous occasions when she tried to escape publicity were terrible. "Why should I hide? Am I doing something that should remain a secret?" she said.
