I know WA has had to give up his UN Water appointment in advance of his accession but I wonder why Maxima has been allowed to continue with hers. Any reason behind it?

Máxima isn't nor will become a Reigning Monarch while WA will,that's the difference.It was agreed decades ago that if WA would become King,he would give up all his functions for,ao,the UN.For Máxima this doesn't apply,see the above.

Ah, so she isn't using the KBX then but a regular (KLM?) flight.

Didn't Helen Clark also attend the inauguration? I believe that she was included in the group photo.

i'm very happy that maxima continues her role with the UN now that she's queen. she's obviously an appreciated team mate and colleague in the areas she contributes to. i guess ban ki moon is happy to continue to have her along.

He saw het going into a room to wash her hands and later he noticed her sitting in the plane.
He took a picture and filmed her (though I wish he hadn't). He posted them at his FB page, but has kept the setting to friends only. The pictures are so blurry anyway that she is unrecognisable.
It was a normal flight. I don't know if she sat economy or buisiness, the short film (10 sec. or so) was too blurry to make any sense.

She,they all,use scheduled flights instead of KBX,the KBX isn't designed for long haul flights,just short- to medium haul.And with outgoing state visits the old bird is flown out two to three days before and hops from airport to airport to finally land somewhere in the neighbourhood of the country where the state visit takes place.Then,HM and now TM,hop over from their scheduled flights into the KBX and most think they flew it the whole stretch...nah...never,not outside Europe anyway.
