Dutch Royal Coat-of-Arms, Standards and Flags
 
I came across these two coat-of-arms, they look the same on the first glance but I notice that in the first picture the middle shield is in the form of a shield while on the second image it is in the form of a circle. I wonder why this difference has been made, maybe the circle-thing is for members who marry into the RF? I remember that Laurentien has a round coat-of-arms too. This one is of Máxima btw, the castle with the cypresses is the coat-of-arms of the Zorreguieta family. I suppose the first one is the c-o-a of her daughters. The horns represent Orange I believe and the lions represent Nassau.

Did Maxima's father have a coat of arms or did Maxima receive a new coat of arms like Mary of Denmark received?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers and Thank you,

By Royal Decree of 25 januari 2002, Máxima was assigned a coat of arms and standard.

These are the coat of arms of H.R.H. Catharina-Amalia Beatrix Carmen Victoria Prinsess of the Netherlands, Prinsess of Orange-Nassau and other children out of the marriage H.R.H. the Prince of Orange and H.R.H. Princess Máxima, by Royal Decree of 21 nov. 2003, nr.03.004842.

It was a decision By the Hoge Raad van Adel not to use different chapes of the shield for difference of gender and to discontinue the use of the female shield.

Maxima's father, Jorge Zorreguieta, is not a royal not a noble. And he is from Argentina where is not usual at all to have a personal coat of arms. The only person in Argentina with a Coat of Arms is the President, which is the same as the country's coat of arms.
