Maxima looks very glad and I agree with you, it seems she is not bothered by the press. I especially like the first pic where Máxima is leaving the plane with a very nice smile.

That girl with her, I think she is Samantha Dean.

As expected, the popular press is blowing the whole thing up: 'the forbidden pictures that The Netherlands was not allowed to see' according to zijonline:

ZIJONLINE - ZIE ALLE VERBODEN FOTO'S! Alexander wil maximaal 250.000 euro voor vakantiefoto's

The same thing happened about the thing of Maxima with glasses in Argentina.... why they/ the RVD fail to see how things work is beyond me.

More: http://www.nu.nl/achterklap/2057797/...ls=51252o.html

they demand up to 250.000 euros in damages

Of course they are blowing this up. Any opportunity to make money. As we've all seen, once something is labelled 'forbidden', everyone wants to see it. This is a really unfortunate situation, and I hope that it didn't ruin the children's enjoyment of their holiday.

During the lawsuit today the prince and princess released a statement. Kroonprins: Foto's belastend voor gezin - Trouw

They say that taking the pictures are damaging for their familylife and the normal upbringing they are trying to give to their children. The prince says that it is very important to have a normal childhood because it helped him to fulfill his tasks. He says that when he was young and he and his brothers went on a sailingtrip with his grandfathers boat the press would take pictures. Although people think it is just an innocent picture, it was upsetting to them and they had to stay inside and eventually they didn't want to go anymore.

It does not sound as if he realizes how priviliged they are which must make up for some upset.

I am curious to hear what the court descides in this matter.

WA and his idea of taking the best of both worlds :rolleyes2:

A future heir is kind of public property and so is is family. No question that they have a right of privacy but demanding only to be photographed or approached when on public duty, is a step too far. The DRF are public servants and in return they enjoy huge privileges what comes with a prize ... what is public interest at all times. The Oranges asking for "normality" is a contradiction in itself. If WA is too upset to take in the downside of his position, well, he should abandon it but throwing some tantrums won't change the way the press work, especially foreign press. I do hope the case gets rejected, time for a reality check.

Agree! Any Royal Family is sort of public property. Tax payers are paying for their lavish lifestyles = they're entitled to see pictures. Taking pictures of them doing innocent things like sailing or skiing can't hurt them or the Royal Family. Raising a stink about it can cause the RF harm though in the form of bad publicity.

I couldnt be more agree. He can't pretend their kids to have a normal childhood because they aren't normal, I mean, normal kids doesn't live in a castle, don't have nannies all the time, don't have a mom called princess...That is so ilogical

I also think that when times are hard for so many we do not want any whining.

The judgement of the court in 2 weeks is important imo.

I think the press it will make it harder for him. He really does need to understand there is nothing normal about his or his families life. Throwing his tantrums does nothing but make him look like an a$$. I hope he does not win this one.

anyway, i think if they want privacy do not go to public places, now he and i thinkk fred too manage to have their relation with Maxima and Mary very private at the bigining probalby close to a year it is my understanding that nobody knew about them for at least a year so i am sure if they want they can manage to have some privacy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 and I agree with the rest here they do not have a normal life,nor the kids, leaving in castles, mananies etc...etc...........

Ok, this makes the whole situation a bit absurd. Pictures from private moments are only allowed if they have any news value (e.g. if the prince was hit by a snowscooter and has to go to the hospital). So far, that's clear. But because the lawsuit is news, the pictures can be published, so the 6 o clock news in the netherlands has published the pictures :S skip to the 6.20 mark to see the newsitem and the pictures.

Oh sorry, what i've written above is a small summary of the newsitem. Furthermore the lawyer/attorney/whatever from AP says that it does have newsvalue and the lawyer from the prince reads the statement the prince gave.

I soooo agree with you. Business here is so bad there won't be a vacation at all this year. So I'm sorry about your lavish ski vacation, next time stay at home. I love the DRF and mean no disrespect but I only wish I had his problem!!
