Queen Maxima has been in hospital for about 3 days now and we still don't have any information on her condition. That is very worrisome.

Not neccessarily. The newsreports wrote that they would take samples to see which specific bacteria is causing her illness. That would take a day. Then they would look which medicin works best against the bug, that would take another day. So, acvording to schedual, they have just given her antobiotics. And now she has to respond and recover.

Actually, culturing a sample takes from a few days to a couple of weeks. More likely than not, they are treating her symptoms and using a process of elimination to determine what's going on, based on what medicines she responds to.

It may also take a couple of days for antibiotics to start working or show a noticeable affect, so Queen Maxima may well stay in hospital for a good few days yet.

Fantastic news! Still will take a few days to a couple of weeks to recover. For difficult infections, antibiotics can be taken for up to 14 days and maybe even a week longer to make sure all of microbes are killed. Still good news for her family and I am sure we all wish her a speedy recovery!:)

It's wonderful to hear that Maxima is well enough to be released from hospital and rest at home. I can imagine that the AAAs will be particularly glad to see her again. It must have been hard for them when their mother was ill in China.

An article on the website of the state broadcaster NOS about the UN functions of the king and queen:

Koning en koningin sterk verbonden met VN | NOS

- the king was in NYC last week to close the advisorty board on sanitation and water, of which he was the chairman.

- the queen was in Bangladesh for the UN too.

- the writer says that you can regard these functions as royal volunteering. Or even less respectfully: 'activity threrapy'. He states that many functions in the Netherlands are rather shallow: cutting ribbons and other representative events. This can be frustrating and by working for the UN they can show their other qualities and do somthing useful for society.

The Flemish newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws received a thank you note from the Dutch court for their 'pity package'. Because the Dutch footbal team is not going to the European championship footbal in 2016 while the Belgian team is, the newspaper sent the package to 50 well-known Dutchmen, among them the king. The package contained a footbal shirt of the Belgian team, Belgian flags, sunglasses and red horns (as the nickname of the Belgian team is the 'red devils' The court said that the gesture was 'especially appreciated'.

Nice picture from a couple of months ago I think: an unnoticed Queen Máxima shows her daughters the Binnenhof (Inner Court): see picture.

The Inner Court is the central square inside this large and beautiful complex and the ceremonial proceedings at the the Third Tuesday of September (Prinsjesdag), see picture.

I think the photo in the Christmas card is really sweet, I somehow missed it at the time of Amalia's birthday. I didn't realise that the AAA's could ride, but then again horseriding is a traditional royal hobby.

Thank you for sharing. Can anyone tell me what the last language is? I can't identify it but it reminds me of Spanish.

Why would they use this language?

Because HM King Willem-Alexander is also King of Aruba and Curaçao as well as Sint Maarten. All located in the Caribbean. They are autonomous countries, but belong to the Kingdom of the Netherlands, albeit not the country of the Netherlands.

best wishes Michiru

Thanks for the quick response. I've never heard of papiamento before, but it makes sense for them to include it on the card and is a nice gesture.

Not wanting to be a wet blanket, but there are no hard riding hats being used which surprised me somewhat.
