Aparently he underwent a knee surgery, according to this article in the Telegraaf (who is quoting the RVD).

A private visit no doubt, so no pictures here, though newspapers could try to argue that 4 visits to Argentina within half a year might be relevant background information for their readers . Not to mention the prince's speeches about CO2 neutrality and such.

--

Having that said, I hope Mr. Zorreguieta as a swift recovery from this surgery, these knee surgeries can get quite nasty from time to time, though he seems rather vital still.

Actually,Marengo,flying all that way,with the children too,to see someone recovering from a knee operation only.....
I hope it is just that,considering his age.

So if its soooo private, why does the RVD 'announces' the visit?
Now for sure the paparazzis will follow Máxima...

6 years is not reason for leaving yourselv go fat, specially when you are a public figure and an example for the people, it would not anly be about his look, is a health issue too. and yes, he still charming!
Have you considered the possibility that his weight gain might be because of medicines he may use for his auto-immune disease?

Prinsesbeagle, you raise a very good point. My mother has suffered from an auto-immune disease for many years. At one point, her doctors required her to take a steroid medication that caused her to gain a lot of weight. These types of medications are often part of the treatment for this type of disease.

Maybe to prevent upheaval that happened last time she went to Argentina, when there was a big discussion in the press and public about Maxima with glasses. If pictures would be made by paparazzi, some newspaper would probably print it, claiming it is newsworthy that they are in Argentina, the RVD would try to forbid the publication an there would be a new discussion along the lines of 'why aren't we allowed to see them in Argentina? What do they have to hide?' Now no newspaper or magazine can print the photos.

Infobae.com:

Máxima Zorreguieta in the country because of her father's health

*Máxima Zorreguieta, en el país por la salud de su padre - Infobae.com*

Also mentions that Mr. Zorreguieta is to undergo a knee surgery.

It strikes me as odd. Why would you come, with your husband, only because your father is going to have a knee surgery? Yeah well, the man is 80. That could be a matter of concern, but still... odd.

If I wanted to allow my imagination to fly, I would think that there exists some announcement to be made... but then I would be acting Story-alike

That's not just a possibility,it is the very case with HRH.He does suffer from a auto-immune disease,for years,and has to get to medicine with the obvious result.Thank you for pointing at that direction for those who obviously needed that.
