Queen Máxima was supporting the Dutch, very enthusiasticly. She also told the press that she is 100% for the Netherlands, of course, she should be. She always seems very enthusiastic when supporting th Dutch, so I suppose she really wants to support them..

Well, I don't know if she's "100 % for the Netherlands" (in a Netherlands x Argentina match, I mean), but, even if she were not, she would never say it in public or let it show of course.

From my personal experience with Argentinians, I know they are very nationalistic and I am pretty sure it must be hard for Maxima to let it go.

I agree with you 100% she is a Dutch queen she can not say different what ever she would feel in a match like this will be kept in private! it's normal

i'd say there is a chance, although maybe they would only attend if it was a final match now that they are king and queen... but who knows? i am almost sure they will attend if the netherlands gets to the finals!

I think is sensitive not to go! eventhought she is the dutch Queen, and she will be for the Dutch to win, I think probably it is not fear to put herself in that situation, she probably feels for Argentina too, and would be not nice for her. let's think the triple A has Argentinean gradnparents and wonder how it is at home! of course we will never know!

I don't think the date and location has been released yet, but it will probably be soon. The summer holidays in the middle area of the country start this weekend.

---
The king was spotted in a KLM airplane from London to Amsterdam on friday:
Koning reist tussen het volk | Binnenland | Telegraaf.nl

So the king doesn't always use the government airplane. The RVD did ot want to comment on the purpose of the visit to London.

Most likely it was a private visit. Im surprised the King doesn't always use government planes. Since they don't want to comment on the visit then using a private plane would've been the best thing since the visit wouldn't be questioned because it wouldn't of been known about.

Queen M does this very often. Every now and then someone tells the papers. A friend of mine was in the same plane a year ago. Heading towards New York. And no, he told us friends but not the papers. ;-)

IIRC there was some hullaboo about the costs of using the government plane a few years ago, so since this is reducing costs most will think this is a good thing, esp. for private visits.

According to Billet Bladet, the king and queen will pay a state visit to Denmark between March 16-18 2015. The Danish court did not confirm the dae, though they say that they are debating the issue.

Royalty Online

The last Dutch state visit to Denmark dates from 1984, when Queen Beatrix visited Copenhagen. The last state visit from Denmark to The Netherlands dates from 1975.

The king bought a speedboat, an Osprey 38 from the Frisian company Wajer & Wajer. The boat is supposed to have costed 800.000 euros and will be used in Greece.

I can predict the diarrhea coming down in the online media and social forums... I am amazed that such a little boat comes with that prize tag and that the King was willing to spend that amount. It is almost an open invitation to anyone to tackle the King and his eh... jet-set lifestyle. There was already grumble that the State had to spend around the same amount for a pied-à-terre for Princess Beatrix. So to see the King or the Princess could gave paid for their own pied-à-terre. I wonder what their priorities are.

Oh really?This is not a priority case.At all.it's a man buying a boat because he can and most will say ;"Oh that's ok!" anyway.Good for him.oh,and the shrapnell fired by "online media and social fora"..?...The social fora are not that social but more a-social,and online media live by the crap of the day.And,most Dutch couldn't care less as halve of them is hollydaying all over the globe,because they can...and the other halve is preparing their umptiest BBQ as it's beautifull weather here and all are in good spirits..So,they certainly do have other and more important priorities,yes!...Just my 5 cents worth....
