I believe he actually proposed to Maxima after some ice skating on one of the ponds at Palace Huis Ten Bosch.

I know the Dutch love their speed skating, but I guess I didn't realize how much they love it until this Olympics! In my local paper this morning, a journalist said that speed skating is as sacred to the Dutch as hockey is to Canadians - so that put things in perspective for me. Has it always been a popular sport, or is this enthusiasm more recent?
