Real or fake fur, Maxima looks great in it. The prize was usually handed out by the late Prince Bernhard btw.

I know fur collars are very in, and they look good in the closeup, side view of Maxima. But in the long range picture, the fur collar looks disporportionately large and like furry epaulettes (sp?).

-- thank you for pictures today at Noordeinde Palace. Princess Maxima hair darker and I loved it. Went really well with her skin and actually makes her look very sophisticated. Hope that she keeps it like that as more natural looking. Or, maybe it was just the lighting at the Palace that gave this appearance of the darker hair.

The Praemium Erasmianum as it is named,was instituted by the late Prince Bernhard as an award to those who rendered extraordinary services to Europe and European Culture more specifically.

HRH The Prince of Orange is Patron since his grandfather passed away,hence it is him that hands out the Prize,not HM.

Here the website of the Erasmus prize, or the ´Praemium Erasmianum´, as it is more impressively called.

According to the website:

Quote:
The Erasmus Prize is awarded to a person or institution which has made an exceptionally important contribution to culture in Europe.
Emphasising the importance of tolerance, cultural multiformity and undogmatic critical thinking, the Foundation endeavours to express these values in the choice of the Erasmus laureates.
And about the winner of 2007:

Quote:
The Board of the Praemium Erasmianum Foundation has decided to award the Erasmus Prize 2007 to the Hungarian filmmaker and media artist Péter Forgács.

The Erasmus Prize is awarded annually to a person who has made an exceptionally important contribution to European culture, society or social science. The amount of the Prize is € 150.000. The presentation of the Prize will take place in the autumn of 2007

She is an original One with a bad hair day though. That looks really messy. But in the end it doesn't really matter since Maxima is Maxima
