What does one do as patron of the orchestra or of another organization? Do they attend events or have any official duties?

Queen Máxima's Patronages and Chairships

Princess is patron of the scouts

Princess Máxima has become the patron of the Dutch scouting movement. She follows in the footsteps of her father-in-law Prince Claus who was patron of th Scouting Nederland until his death three years ago. A spokesperson for the organisation said Princess Máxima wants to play a role in helping young people realise their plans and help the integration of various ethnic groups into Dutch society. (Expatica)


From BRMB:
Scouting overthrilled with the new Patron and claims many members have reacted enthousiastically on the news

It's not the first time that she's involved with projects and organizations working towards social integration. It's an important topic for her.

I believe this is her first visit to a scoutinggroup since she became a patron a year ago or so? I can´t remember many visits by the late Prince Claus either btw, who used to be the patron of Scouting Nederland. A pity she isn´t wearing a uniform though .

It would be nice if she could show a bit more interest in this patronage. I know that she has a very full schedule, but if she became patron over a year ago and this is her first visit, it does not seem so nice for me.

Scouting is really important in a young perrsons life. It ceratinly gives them something to do other than plop themselves behind a tv or computer all of the time, and I think that it helps give them skills that they can use in later life, so I wish that she were more proactive in this.

Although, for some reason, scouting seems like it would be a better patronage for Laurentien if you were to ask me.

I would say she re-edited the blue/brown outfit she wore to a visit to Turkey in March, while pregnant of Ariane (with a matching hat)...am I right?

Well, I think the Dutch Royals have a different way of dealing with their patronages. They are usually less involved with them and deal with other topics too. I don´t think that Maxima has a patronage about microfinance, likewise WA isn´t a patron of any watermanagment group.

To be a patron of something is more about the honour for the organsisation, a sort of recognition that they are making a difference in society etc.

I understand that, but still it would be nice if they took some interest in it. I think it would be nicer for them as well if they had an interest in the organizations for which they are patron. It would certainly give them a chance to express their knowledge on certain subjects, and also make those that are a member of said patronage feel more involved with the people that are head of their country.

She took over in 2005 & i think it wouldve been nice if she made a visit when she first took over. I think this might not be as big as a few other's she holds but it will do good for the scouts girls/boys who do take part. It would be nice for them to see their princess visiting them and as you mentioned, a uniform wouldve made it all
