We don't get to see pics of the girls on their first school day after the summer break. We only got pics when the girls had their first day at school ever. It's not like in Belgium for example where we see pics each September when school starts again.


Here are some more additional pics from yesterday:

Ah, WA's hair is back to normal, sadly.
Nice that the princesses wear different clothes. I believe the one of Alexia was worn by Amalia a few years ago.

According to royalblog it is expected that the king will pay a state visit to Canada next year, to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Canadian part in the liberation of the Netherlands in 1945.

The RF was long associated with protestantism and usually did a lot to please them. In the 30-ties Juliana had to stop using the Piet Hein yacht on sunday for example, after criticism from the churches. The last decades this changed,as less people are religious but this causes uneasiness with the core group of orthodox christians.

A few years ago they critisized the RF for attending official functions & having personal engagements on sundays. Two months ago the criticism on (the catholic) queen Máxima -for being too exhubertant- came mainly from this group, and now this. In the 90-ties they voted against the wedding of Prince Maurits to the catholic Marilene van den Broek and attacked Queen Juliana for taking the communion at their wedding. Obviously they have difficulties in accepting their reduced role.
Maxima is supposed to be Catholic and seems to be very close to the current Pope, who is a fellow Argentinian. However, she didn't marry in the Catholic Church and her 3 daughters were baptized in the Protestant Church. I also don't think she attends mass , at least not regularly. All that makes me question her true committment to Catholicism.

Generally speaking, Willem-Alexander and Maxima seem to me like many Western European couples in the same age bracket or younger these days, i.e they were raised in a particular church, acknowledge a belief in the Christian deity, and share Christian moral values, but are not really practicing Christians in the sense of attending church services regularly or participating in church rituals. I understand that many orthodox Calvinists, who have always looked up to the House of Orange as the "defenders" of their church, may resent that. They are a minority of the current Dutch population though.

This year they will celebrate Christmas in Argentina, I believe. Mr Jorge Zorreguieta Stefanini, the father of Queen Máxima is seriously ill. This is a good opportunity to see his daughter, his son-in-law and his Dutch grandchildren.

The Zorreguieta family lives in La Recoleta, in the city of Buenos Aires, but also have a property in San Carlos de Bariloche (bordering Chile). The King and Queen themselves own a property in La Angostura, in the heart of a nature reserve in Patagonia (South Argentina).

The average attendance of Mass for Roman-Catholics is only 2,5% in the Netherlands. By far the majority of Catholics never see a Church inside, except for the occasional wedding or funeral. The King however, is a loyal member of a Bible Class he attends for 25 years now. The "Court Chaplain" (the Rev. Minister Carel ter Linden), has been the King's guide all these years, he also "did" various royal weddings, funerals and baptisms. It seems the couple regularly attends service in the village church of Wassenaar. Also the family chapel at Het Loo Palace is regularly used. So the Catholic Queen joins her husband and children to Protestant service. That is no problem, after all we are talking about the same Bible.

The queen travelled ahead to Argentina while her husband and daughters will follow tomorrow or saturday, as the princesses still have attend school tomorrowand the king still needs to record his christmas speech.

Wonder if the triple A celebrate the The three wise men or the three magic kings on January 6? It is a tradition in Argentina and I was wondering if Maxima introduce it to them?

The Three Kings are a tradition in Spain and Argentina indeed, but the equivalent of that (someone from overseas bringing presents) is celebrated on December 6th (Saint Nicholas). In recent years we have seen the Princesses welcoming the Saint. So most likely Queen Máxima follows the Dutch habit for her children, after all Dutch Princesses. See picture.
