Maxima looks wonderful. I love seeing photos of her when she is on the job. She never looks anything other than completely interested and engaged in her duties.

I do love Maxima, she is a lovely intelligent lady, who seems always genuinly interested in the things she does. Only one thing.... is there anyone who can tell her to do something with her hair. Oh dear it looks really bad on the last photo's, it looks "i have just come out of my bed and didn't have time to comb it" what a pity

Thank you, thank you so much for posting these videos! She sounds a little strange for an Argentinian, maybe it´s the influence of Dutch. Let´s not forget she studied Economics, but she has obviously prepared herself on this particular subject..

Very well done, Máxima! I really liked to hear the princess talking about this topic. She's not only well prepared as she seems to really Believe in what she's saying. This is not a hobby for her, but something she cares a lot. I hope she continues like this.

I saw the video at another site and was quite impressed by Maxima. She was clearly very knowledgeable about the subject and was able to answer the questions fluidly and eloquently.

As far as her accent goes, I found it more Dutch than anything else and bizarrely thought there was a slight English intonation as well.

I was also very impressed with CP Maxima's expertise in this field, as well as with her excellent English. Being American, I unfortunately speak English in that nasal-Yankee style (if I could do something about it, believe me, I would). To me, her accent was very lovely. Her English was perfect, and her intonation and pronunciation were very clear. Her rhythm is nearly similar to that of a native speaker.

In an interview released this morning HRH states she will be critical before accepting new international functions/jobs in the
future,but she is open to new challenges in the field of micro-credit.It will have to be interesting enough,have content and
effect,and moreover,it should be easy to combine with her family and the work she already does here in The Netherlands.

The Princess gave the interview as the UN Council on Inclusive Sectors will be desolved as of today as its job is done.
HRH has been a member of this UN council for 4 years.

HRH will remain a member of the national council for micro-credit.

does that mean maxima is finishing her work on microcredits with the UN?

i loved seeing maxima in the al jazeera interview. she really seems knowledgeable, intelligent and prepared. a true joy to see a princess doing something that really has an impact in international diplomacy.

i cannot really identify her accent in english - maybe somewhat northern european?

the foundation that the funds earned from the princess maxima polo cup this year willgo towards Fundación F.A.N., a foundation to care for children.
Carlota yes,the work foir the UN is finished,the Advisory Council recently presented Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon with the final report during a meeting in Doha.HRH doesn't mind new/more challenges in the micro-credit field as long as it combines easyer with her family life and her work in The Netherlands.
