The D-Day invasion was done mostly by US, British and Canadian troops. France is the host. Those countries are rightfully up front. You can't stick Obama and the Queen in back (the queen can't go in the back anyways since she is so short) and have Merkel front and center

I guess it's just more an unfortunate mistake than a pushy attitude from Maxima.

Yes, I'm sure there was someone in charge of assembling everyone for the photo, and Maxima was probably somehow included in that group - I doubt she rushed over and insisted in being included. A faux pas, but not a huge one, in the grand scheme of things, IMO.

Nico: you are probably right, but unfortunately for her, I guess it brings back the (unfounded) criticism that Maxima acts like a "co-sovereign", rather than a consort, which is a sensitive issue in the Netherlands. Remember for example the debate before Willem-Alexander's inauguration on whether Maxima should be called "queen" or not.

I wonder what Marengo thinks (being from the Netherlands, of course).

We are only human... there will always be small errors and mistakes with protocol, especially when so many important people are gathered together !

A very nice picture and it made me realize something about the world leaders.............we most surely must have and need more women world leaders, not just men. I believe then that there would not be so many darn problems with egos and power. Putin should NOT be in that picture...sorry for getting off topic, just don't know where else to comment on this picture!
