Part two

The honeymoon went to....:Aruba!!Says the booklet...
Ney,they went to St.Moritz to stay at Freddie Heineken''s villa with her family,and went to New-Zealand afterwards (page 199).
Oh and no,the Prince does not own a private jet,another false fact.

The two idiots have no clue on the Royal House finances.
They claim Maxima earns 825.000euro (page 163) nor 893.000 on page 893.000,instead she earns 241.000 euro.

It gets totally nasty further on:

The dutch PM set the date of the wedding...NO,the couples choice.

The Queen had it in writing and made Maxima sign for it that she was obliged to deliver an Heir and the Queen would name the royal babies!!!!The bloody nonsense!No such thing happened. ( page 252)

The wedding dress was Beatrix''s choice,not Maxima''s,which is absolutely total bullocks really.

They claim Amalia was named after Amalia von Solms-Laubach* 1654,but that happed to be after Amalia von Solms - Braunfels* 1602

Maxima did not give an interview two days after the delivery to explain the names,Alexander did that when he went to the townhall to officially register Amalia.page 256

How they met difers from what we know happened by our own Alexander and Maxima.

"" Their version"" claims that a woman,a common friend,Cynthia Kauffmann,introduced them and Alexander first grapped for Maxima''s butt when they met in Sevilla....This,dear readers,is false,not true.

The couples own imagination gets the better of them the entire book long.And quite frankly,I''m fet up with translating so much nonsense for today.
Oh yes,another gaffe,histerical mistake.The authors claim Papa and Mama Zorreguieta stayed at the London Ritz on the Queens expenses.Not true.
Our RVD denies that too,as I always did.The Zorreguieta''s stayed with dear Juanito aka HM King Juan Carlos,one of Queen Beatrix closest friends.
I always knew,but hardly ever mentioned,and funny thing,no-one believed it either.Arrangements/details were discussed during a State Visit by our Spanish Royal Couple to The Netherlands shortly before the wedding,remember?..

Oh,enough for today,there isn''t anything worth while left anyway.
Save your bucks,read it in a library if you can''t be stopped..

Jezz...are you going to blog again on me,uh,this...don''t mention me untill I have my hair done and a pic taken...

In the Eindhoven's Dagblad (Newspaper) there was an article about the book and they said that the things we didn't know were full of mistakes and it wasn't relevant at all.

These two journalist just want to make money over Maxima's back.

Tomorrow's edition of LNR magazine (edited every Sunday by La Nación newspaper) features Máxima on the cover, and will give an overview of the book "Máxima, una historia real". It will be available tomorrow through this link

Even the newspaper 'De Telegraaf', which is famously inaccurate, is talking about the many inaccuracies of the book. They dedicated the entire 3rd page to the book though, Maxima sells. There were some funny stories about Maxima's relatives at the wedding in AMsterdam and apparently Maxima practiced in the New Church with a curtai wrapped around her middle, the day before the wedding.

Yes, thus far it was said in the press that her parents were actually in Madrid and that they visited them there before they went to the Heineken chalet in St. Moritz. Considering the many mistakes in the book it is tempting to assume that this is another one.

i read about that much before all this book nonses but i probably belive theat alexander wanted to surprise her with the visit of her parents when they couldn't be present at her wedding, i think is a a realy nice gesture of him, it had to be hard in that day not to have your parents, so he probaly did soemthing! to confort her1 soemtime i think they were there but camuflash! just a silly thought of me!

According to newspaper 'De Telegraaf' the authors actually spoke about two supposed ex boyfriends. Nothing that shocking from the Italian ex (whose name I usually forget - this time is no exception ), just that they discovered Buenos Aires nightlife together or something in that direction. The other one, Dieter Zimmerman (who is her ex according to the authors though the -Dutch- press established that he was not, and sometimes it is suggested he is gay; even by the boulevard magazines) comments slightly more. The relationship between Maxima an Zimmerman was already over when she met the prince. A thing the Telegraaf mentions is that according to the authors Maxima's mother once introduced Zimmermann to somebody as 'the sweet jew boy'.

Oh yes,wasn't it.
They flew to Madrid at the Zarzuela where her parents were the guests of Juanito.They were able to see Maxima on her wedding day,in her wedding dress and the beautifull jewellery.All that was arranged in details at the Spanish State Visit shortly before the wedding,as Maxima first appeared officially as the fiancee of Alexander at the State Banquet at the Royal Palace here,wearing Queen Juliana's aquamarine parure,remember?

You are welcome TLLK. Mind you, I haven't read it yet so my opinion is only based on what was written in the press, which wasn't too positive. And although there are many mistakes there should be some intersting parts too, I am sure a part of the material will be used for more serious biographies in the future, when there is more to tell about Máxima.

And even more mistakes!!!

Re: Mercado Abierto -> the company confirmed that Maxima worked for them for a few months in 1989/1990. So the authors claims are once again wrong.

Added to that, royalblog reports that 'sources in The Hague' -and note that royalblog is by GDP papers, so they actually have sources - catagorically deny that Maxima was ever involved with a Dieter Zimmermann. She was renting his apartment while he was still registered there and the two only met twice.

I already said that.It is all on the Royal House website,the Mercado story,always was since Maxima was " added ".

True, but the new part is that it was now denied by the company itself, not only by the RVD.

-
We can always count of newspaper 'De Telegraaf' for some good soundbites, they named the book: 'Bridget Jones Revisited' .

-
It seems the article in La Nacion was written by the authors of the book, so a critical review might be too much to expect. Click here (in Spanish only and thanks Verde!).

-
And another thing, royal blog says the following: 'The Dutch journalist asked to accept the first copy, Wednesday in Buenos Aires, even cancelled his trip to Argentina'. Any idea which journalist this is, the blog implies that he/she cancelled because the book is rather disappointing.

-

I can't imagine that Jorge and Carmen Zorreguieta actually stayed at La Zarzuela itself, sharing the television set with king Juan Carlos . AFAIK it is usually said that they stayed as guests of the Spanish King, and that they stayed in Madrid. I suppose that could mean there were in a guesthouse of Zarzuela (assuming it has one)? Added to that, I am not sure where the information comes from either, but as usual these things get repeated in the press and because it is stated so often it is assumed that it is true.

-

Last thing: when will the book actually be available in stores?

Every woman in New York was chasing after him! He was gorgeous, rich, famous - I wouldn't blame Maxima -
