I'm so glad that Princess Mathilde is gonna be Alexia's godmother , that's very nice !! It is a great choice , because she is great with children .
It shows also the friendship between Maxima and Mathilde.
I'm so excited now !
I think it is also the first time Mathilde is a godmother , al least of a royal baby.

Can you imagine in the future , Maxima , Mathilde and their children together on a birthdayparty for Alexia ? Elisabeth and Amalia will get great friends , and maybe love between Alexia and Emmanuel ?? ( Okaay i'm just dreaming !:) )

Actually, There is a stupid law, since the indepence of Belgium, made around 1830, that Dutch princes absolutely could not marry an Belgian princess, or vice versa. But we all know that that law nowadays means nothing now.

yes, people from the Lucky Sperm Club (that's the term the Venerable Donald Trump is said to use when he meets a royal, he is said to greet royals with a "Ah, you're from the lucky sperm club!" It sure takes an American to put some perspective on the increasingly irrelevant phenomenon of nobility)

are well represented for this baptism. I understand it as these people represent friends of the royal couple, but it is disappointing that they couldn't include perhaps a Dutch immigrant from Maroccan decent or sth.
Maxima is always so gung ho about representing the immigrant population and wanting to help them, she should try to practise what she preaches. Just my humble opinion, folks.

No, it takes a noveau riche twit like him who enjoys the celebrity and exploitation of his name and thinks he himself his high society in the United States.

Please do not go by his words as representing "all Americans". There are many aristocratic U.S. families who would never invite him to dinner.

He just shows he has no class.....

Lady Marmelade,

I appreciate your comments, but with all due respect, I never said Donald Trump represents all Americans.

And as for him being nouveau riche..Actually, his parents were millionaires, but anyways, I have generally more respect for someone nouveau riche than for a born-to-the manor royal. The reason for that is simple: at least a nouveau riche earned his/her wealth entirely on their own. More commendable, wouldn't one agree, than simply being born into wealth, non?

By the way, I do agree Trump is a twit, and way too flashy for his own good. But he <is> amusing, and being a twit doesn't mean he cannot hit the nail on the head from time to time, and saying what a lot of people are thinking, right?

And as for class..pff..that's entirely overrated term, if you ask me. The Dutch royals pay for their class by way of the Dutch tax payers, for example. Classy indeed!

allright everyone, I see I veered way off topic with my last post!

On topic then, I didn't realize Mathilde and Maxima were friends, I mean, I'd read that, but thought that was what the media made of it. But thinking of it, it makes sense: they have a lot in common role- and life style-wise, and besides that they both seem to be naturally gregarious women. go figure! :)

I dont think I could ever say i have more respect for someone who earned their money as opposed to someone who inherited it. its all about the way you live your life yourself.

you can have climbed your way up from nothing all through your own effort but if you're vulgar and unkind, i still wont respect you.

what i like about aristocracy is that these people dont have to climb up by their own efforts so they dont have to concerned about maintaining their status. this allows them to be gracious to others. (that's not to say that selfmade men are never gracious or aristocrats cant be snobs) but anyway, i love the underlying principle.

It's not like Donald Trump earned his money anyway. That's the story he likes to tell, but he inherited a TON of money. It's easier to make a lot of money when you have a lot to start off with. I agree with Lady Marmalade that he does NOT represent the wealthy people of America with his attitude - that's all his own.

spiffyballerina,

again, I did NOT say he represents or represented the American people, American wealth or anything other than himself. I <did> say he is not "new money" as, as I said, indeed he started out as a son of millionaires. Please read my posts before you all get on your high horse. :)
