In my opinion, i think the two of you are right

It would be understandable if it had been Maxima, given her condition.
Hey, maybe Willem Alexander is expecting too. (j/k)

Actually, they are both pregnant. Just because Willem is not subject to the physicality's of pregnancy does not mean he is not pregnant

They are both expecting a child so they are, therefore, both pregnant. However, in some cases, men have contracted what is is believed to be a form of morning sickness and enlarged chest glands...

I'm confident Willem-Alexander will not have to worry of such things though.lol.

Exactly Marengo,at a meeting with the press in Auckland today the Prince was asked about the whole hullabaloo.
And here's what HRH had to say about what was "perceived" as a gaffe,so,maybe it's a good suggestion to wait
with our comments till we've heard both sides on the same story...

true, he was right in principle. In fact, had I been in his place, I'd have kicked some sense and respect into that horrible photographer.....which is why I'd be totally unfit to be king/queen, LOL! The wiser one, indeed, was Maxima who, as always, took the high road by just remaining friendly. Come to think of it, the entire Zorreguieta clan is more press friendly than the Oranjes!
Oh well, Henri M.is right, at least they speak their minds on some things..

ah so it was a joke?! Taht would make the most sense, it has to be said. BUT--I heard his comment on audio and it sure didn't sound like a joke to me! But then, I didn't <see> footage of him saying this so maybe his body language would have explained? Poor guy, now all he needs to do is work on his joke delivery skills! Because most of us didn't exactly grok right away that this wasn't meant as a serious comment..I'm wondering if he's trying to save the situation by saying it was a joke or what. I think I'll give him the benefit of the doubt since he's done a great job during the rest of the trip.

So, what does everyone think, was Beatrix also joking when she uttered the famous words, "de leugen regeert"?
