It was not a night to remember,by the music,yes,but not by the downright rude booing and it becoming more of a political evening no-one,she the least,had asked for.HRH happened to arrive at the same time as french government minister Frederique Mitterand and he was yelled and booed at.Unfortunately that coincided with the arrival of HRH.The french Sarko minister is very unpopular apparently and the program even had to be changed just to avoid more booing outside for the Royal.Le peuple even yelled "Vive le Republique"...!!!!!!!!!!!!She definitely doesn't deserve that scum!!!!Really....the french know how to host,or how to get le peuple out and about...There isn't likely to be a next visit to Paris,or France under the circumstances.Que'll affront!Bah.The French can handle their own just as great as they can handle their budget....NOT!!

I wonder if this means something...
Why did he decide to go to London so suddenly and cancelled his engagement at the last minute?
I find it strange, especially because he was in London earlier this week.
I don't want to speculate, but since we won't get official information on Friso's condition, we have to look at other signs.
By the way; Princess Máxima didn't have a nice evening in Paris; when she entered the Concert Hall, some members in the audience booed at her and someone shouted: "Vive la Republique!"
The booing certainly was not nice but Maxima surely understands, other than those people shouting, that a republic and a parliamentarian monarchy is just two types of democracy. So I don't think she was bothered at all.

Pretty rude of the French to boo Maxima. What business is it of theirs what system of government the Dutch choose to use? I prefer a constitutional monarchy to an elected presidency, but it doesn't mean I'd boo the President of the United States.

You are absolutely correct. I enjoy the fact the many countries have quite different forms of government. I enjoy learning about them all. Not one is 100% correct or 100% wrong. Just quite different with different rules and laws. To boo an official of another country is just ill mannered. I always think when I read of such things that the booing person's mother sure didn't raise him well Or, maybe the parents had no manners to start with. Shame they exist.

Were they booing her or the Frech Minister Frederic Mitterand? The Sarkozy government is not terribly popular after all. Maxima might just have been caught in the crossfire.

I can assure you that the vast majority of the French are most pleased to welcome any kind of royal people and doesn't shoot "Vive la République" at the sight of any crowned head. I suspect the booing was more or less directed to the french minister of Culture, Frederic Mitterrand (the nephew of the late President,) member of the uber unpopular Sarkozy's government (and well known for his deference toward royalty) rather than this poor Maxima (because let's face it, the vast majority doesn't even know who she is).
So please don't generalise to the entire french people because one or two left wing morron thought it was fun to express some uncanny revolutunary feeling in front of an unpopular minister and a rather obscure Princess ( this incident, as well as Maxima's visit were not even mentioned by the national press).
1789 is over folks, we don't behead kings anymore ...

I can understand you disapointment but this kind of comments generalising the attitude of some morrons to an entire nation are higly disapoiting if not insulting.

Seems obvious. Wa can add that Frederic Mitterand is the nephew of the late left wing president François Mitterand and is more or less seen to have betrayed his family convictions to become one of the Sarkozy's ministers. He's well known for his deference toward all things regarding royalty too. This demonstation was of course directed to him and not this poor Maxima (a rather unknown figure here in France).

Just to clarify are you saying that Queen Beatrix accompanied WA to London?

You are right. Perhaps, she was not the object of their boos, so we cannot jump to conclusions. I guess, everyone is touchy, because of the Prince Friso crisis.

I didn't mean to generalise. I feel that those who did the booing were being rude, whatever their motive in doing so.

I think most people in that crowd didn't know who Maxima or Friso are unless they were royalists.

Well, to some extent booing is," Freedom of Speech", and it can be rude, but we republicans, accept that you can make such comments on whomever.

Friso, probably not. Maxima yes, seeing as the event was an official engagement she would have either been announced or mentioned by her title. They wouldn't have shouted viva le republic at anyone.
