What´s that horrible thing in her head, certainly not a hat,it seems like a cat has torn it up. Her hair is ok, she can´t live with hair lotion on it.

How much they liked their stay, that they were looking forward to new-zealand. They also said they learned a lot from this trip and Maxima especially commented on the topic of integration and how the emigrated dutch are doing a wonderfull job in Australia.
The prince said that in NZ they would continue with the same kind of questions, but they expect different awnsers.
They also said it was not true they had contact with their daughters by webcam, but just by phone. The Prince admitted he had difficulties realising that there was a timedifference (I assume he called Huis ten Bosch while his little ladies were already asleep).

The Prince looks good. More and more he is ready for the kingship. His presentation, interaction and the answers in interviews were 10 times better in the interview than that of his spouse, which did disappoint me so very much during these two weeks.

He did look good and if we forget one little slip of the tongue in NZ, we can definitely conclude the prince did a great job. As for his wife, she is pregnant after all, and to me, she looked a bit tired the whole trip, or else, why would she have resorted to wearing sooo much make-up? The trip was a bit long and a bit much for her & her personal situation I think.

The most wonderful hat made by the best milliner still will not work when your hair is a ruïned mess.
Máxima should be ashamed that she, The Princess of Orange, looks like a grocery seller on the local market!

Bah.

interestingly, one of the few times her loose-hanging hair looked superb, was when she left that hotel in NZ when her hubby made the "that's private" comment/joke/whatever. Her hair looked amazing then! And to think it was styled by the local hotel's stylist, who , I'm sure, had met Maxima then for the first time! Why couldn't Maxima's other stylist, the one traveling with her, accomplish the same?

Yes indeed The suits were lovely but those "hats" were terrible, nothing to do with the beautiful ones she wore in Argentina

Cool

Thank you for the video link Henri M. I don't understand how Maxima's hair can look so elegant in evening appearances and not during day events. If the ends were trimmed, that would be an improvement. I agree with you Henri that she can wear a elegant outfit, but her unruly hair takes away from the professional appearance.

Here you see the spouse to the future King of the Netherlands.
And see how the hofdame in black and white is dressed behind her?

Good heavens.

That hofdame was 10 times better dressed than the lady who is in the footsteps of Charlotte de Bourbon-Montpensier, Mary Stuart,
Anne of Hannover or Anna Paulovna Romanovna....

Henri, I think you are taking this a little to far. It isn't as if the Princess murdered somebody or anything. She just wears her hair in a style that you (and I) do not find appropriate for a princess which IMO does not disqualify her for becoming a Queen. There are other qualities, much more important, that she certainly has.
I would like to add that the most Dutch persons does not give a hoot whether Maxima wears her hair down, up or shaves it of.

Watching the EO yesterday actually showed me that Maxima was at ease with the camera, gave good & intelligent awnsers and showed charisma, as did Wilem-Alexander (though nature awarded him with less charisma then his electrifying wife).

I agree Marengo, some mistakes that´s all, she has to change her clothes so many times.Of the Orange princesses she´s the most exposed to critizism.I don´t understand why such a scandal with her hair, it´s long and moves with the wind,that´s all.

She is not next-door-Annie but The Princess of Orange.

I measure her with the highest standards, even higher than I would measure a first lady or so.
I expect elegance, raffinement, style and true class from a lady who will reside in palaces and who sees the portraits of her great predecessors like Claudia de Châlon d'Arlay, Anne de Lorraine et Bar or Eleonore de Bourbon-Condé.

I do not expect her to dress in velvet robes, wear 300 pearls on her bodice or eat from golden plates.
But please.... may we expect something?

In fairness, Henri, when you see future portraits of Maxima she also will look refined, elegant, etc. -- those portraits are all idealized and are a single example of what a person looked like, as opposed to the constant glare of the media royals are exposed to today. Maxima's hair has its good and bad days, but some of those women had rotten or no teeth, smelled and their portraits had the medieval equivalent of airbrushing. Let's not be too harsh.

They enjoyed it, but I'm sure Maxima is glad finally it's all over so she can rest and check on her little daughters

So Maxima's hair wasn't 100% perfect. She's human. She is not a robot, mannequin or doll. The wind will blow, her hair will move and she will be photographed with her hair looking less than spectacular. I'm sure when she was indoors and the wind wasn't knocking her hair around, she looked just fine. I think every single person here has spent time making their hair look just right, only to have some gust a wind put a damper on that.

It's not that big of a deal.

How is it that you never have seen a young Princess Beatrix or a youg Princess Margaret or a young Princess Gracia looking this miserable as the not so young anymore Princess Máxima?

No really, she needs to go back to the Princesses' School.

Miserable was very strong,i didn´t like it at all,and for a simple hairdo. Those princesses had shorter hair, and maybe Maxima can´t stand spending hours and hours in front of the mirror getting her hair fixed.
