But the thing is, Ashelen, that bit about Brussels contains NO news at all. Everyone knew she was getting lessons - next to her job at a bank - when she was living in Brussels. It was widely reported back then.

Sorry if this has been posted before

Princess Maxima book a 'festival of errors'

...
According to website Royalblog, the book - an excerpt of which was published in Holland yesterday (29.03.09) - confuses dates and people, has a prince abdicate a throne he never held, gets the name of Maxima's college wrong and incorrectly states Prince Willem-Alexander's residence twice... - Article

I don´t think spelling mistakes are that serious, if we consider the enormous diference between Dutch ans Spanish.

they don't mean spelling mistakes, they mean conceptual mistakes. as if they invented the book. there's a list somewhere (in dutch) with at least 90 of them.

Vanesa.
It's a word game between "real" and "royal", that works very well in Spanish, but wouldn't make sense in English or Dutch.

For someone who is not familiar with Maxima's story, it could be a nice novel to read, but when you do know a little bit about it and you dive into the book...
