There she is! I had wondered what had happened to the couple. I saw the Queen was back to work 2 weeks ago and even Constantijn and Princess Laurentien, but not the PRince and Princess of Oranje.

I'm not a fan of those shoes, but other than that she looks great, happy, and relaxed :)

the shoes look clunky, like from the sixties (or eighties), and the colour......

maxima was lovely yesterday with that hat....

Thanks for the great pictures. Maxama looks great. I like the colours and articles that she is wearing but here, I find that some of the colours don't seem to match each other. It could just be the lighting!

The dress that Maxima wore at Batatus she wore also two and a half years ago on the Antillen.

On Boulevard they found the face of Maxima a bit rounder, maybe she ate much in Argentina or is there a baby coming?

About the rumours of a marriage crisis: Maybe the argue about the embrassement wit Inge de Bruijn, but I don't think this is a treath for their marriage.

royal_sophietje 09-17-2004 08:16 AM

I also don't think they have a crisis. They got their conclusion from the German press and from looking at the photos.

The Watcher 09-17-2004 08:50 AM

Prive is a gossipmag, I don't think it is true. They are already two weeks back in The Netherlands and now there was suddenly a crisis because they walked not together, when W-A was playing golf. Such a nonsense.


But two days later there was also this picture. I mean, they look happy:rolleyes: and Amalia so cute :o

That peach color does not flatter Máxima one bit, livelier colors are much better for her.

Sancia 09-17-2004 01:16 PM

IMO, on the last pic, baby Amalia looks a lot like Vittoria of Savoy.

Royals fight gossip over 'marriage troubles'

20 September 2004

AMSTERDAM — Dutch Crown Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Maxima are investigating whether legal action can be taken against gossip magazines in the Netherlands and Germany after they published articles suggesting the royal couple was having marital problems.

The gossip magazines honed in on the royal couple after the Olympic Games in Athens, where a photo was taken of Prince Willem-Alexander and star Dutch swimmer Inge de Bruijn arm-in-arm in the Holland Heineken House.

The prince attended a function at the venue on invitation and several gossip magazines later ran stories suggesting there was more to the hug than met the eye. They also suggested that there was a strained atmosphere in the Wassenaar mansion of Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Maxima.

A spokesman for the government information service RVD dismissed the suggestion as nonsense, news agency ANP reported on Saturday.

And the prince and princess are reportedly so angry that they are investigating what legal action can be taken against the magazines, two of which come from the Netherlands and two of which come from Germany. There is national and international case law that might assist the royal couple's battle.

The European Court of European Rights has previously ruled that the privacy of Monaco's Princess Caroline had been violated. The ruling was against a German magazine which published photos of the princess' private life without her permission.

Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Maxima are regularly locked in legal disputes with media in regards their privacy. The last such case involved the publication of photos of their baby daughter Princess Amalia, which were taken from Maxima's stolen digital camera.

The popular royal couple has also crossed hairs with the nation's media by obtaining a Wassenaar Council ban on photographs being made of them through the fence of their mansion De Eikenhorst. The ban was eventually overturned.

Despite this, Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Maxima won a legal case at the end of February against gossip magazine Prive, which had published photos of the inside of the royal couple’s mansion without their permission.

From Benelux Royals Message Board:

Royal wedding 020202 and a 'bomb'...
Two former chief superintendents of the Amsterdam police now say that a man had been arrested on 02.02.02, the wedding of The Prince of Orange and Máxima Zorreguieta, who had been carrying a fake bomb in his rucksack and who had stood along the route ... According the police we were spared a disaster...
The police say they were extremely happy that everything went well after all.

After the divorce in Denmark, it makes you realize how hard it is to be in the public eye all the time. MArriage is hard enough but with the whole world watching your every move, it is a whole lot tougher! i hope they are just fine.

Alisa 10-03-2004 11:25 PM

While the couple's frustration is understandable, I think they need to realize that they shouldn't fight everything that is written about them in the press. It will make them come off as a bunch of sour pusses. A simple official denial is really good enough.

Article: Introduction Máxima almost finished
 
I translated an article about Maxima and her work. Uhmm, the translation is not perfect, but I guess the Non-Dutch understand it better than when it is in Dutch :D
----------------

Introduction Máxima almost finished
Hans Jacobs Friday 15 October 2004 - THE HAGUE -

The introduction programme almost finished. Next week Wednesday princess Máxima becomes member of the Council of State. Soon she makes confessed what she will do with all her new knowledge. Doing nothing is not her style and there is much that interest her . "You continue learning a life long", thinks Máxima. For three years Máxima (33) ` have met the Dutch society. Immediately after her engagement with prince Willem-Alexander she started with that. She readed a package house brochures, reports and notes and had hundreds of conversations for preparation to dozens of working visits and introduction meetings.

From a child stay in Etten-Leur, the means of the national ombudsman and the flower sale by auction in Rijnsburg, to drugs addicts and a nursing home in Sneek. Her impression of all those well-known and unknown things in the society?
"It is very pleasant to live in the Netherlands", judges the princess.

Because her introduction programme, which will end in begin 2005, generally takes place outside the publicity, the gossip magazines made the picture of a Máxima which shops only and celebrates holiday, the last months . "Where is Máxima" asked also the Parool(dutch newspaper): "She is so talented, why she stays background?".

"Nonsense", says a spokesman of the Goverment Information Service (RVD) with a reference to the extensive programme. In December a television documentary must make that clear for everyone. She is also mother. Beside that there is a official introduction programme, the 'Oranjefonds' (Orange Fund) and the Prince Claus Chair (The Curatorium of the Prince Claus Chair is chaired by Máxima). Also she continues working for the so-called commission Rosenmöller, which is for better participation of foreign women to the society. A subject that the princess really likes. She is self an immigrant , thus Máxima. Not only in the Netherlands, but already before in Brussels and New York. And her fatherland Argentina is a country of immigrants. That mix of cultures, she meets now again, interests her very much and that is clear when she has working visits. Máxima sounds credible when she tells the foreign women that speaking the language is so important. Máxima has at least one trait that is the same as her mother-in-law, Queen Beatrix: the in-depth preparation. Everyone who met the princess the past three years, praises her knowledge and good questions.

It is sometimes a problem with the time, because the princess doesn't want that the nanny take care of her little daughter Amalia all the time. So when she reads reports at home in Wassenaar, she also rocks Amalia in sleep.

---------------

So there is a television program in December. Maybe 7 December (Amalia 1 year old)???

Maxima nominated for 'dumb fur' award

Princess Maxima, the Argentinean-born wife of Dutch Crown Prince Willem Alexander, has been nominated for the "dumb fur" award. Bont voor Dieren — an organisation that campaigns against the use of fur in the fashion industry — nominates 10 Dutch celebrities every year for the ignominious distinction. The nominees are singled out for wearing fur or saying "dumb things" on the subject. The organisation said people such as Maxima and other celebrities should be role models and not support the commercial fur industry.

Hannelore 10-15-2004 02:13 PM

That reminds me that Mathilde was proclamed "bont bitch" ("fur bitch") by that same organization at the wedding in Amsterdam in 2002. I coudn't care less, and I hope the same goes for Máxima. I love fur, and I love wearing it. In Europe people in general don't react so violently against it as in the States.
