Well, in 1672 (disaster-year) most people would have disagreed with you on that

Yes. Unfortunately I never saw any interview with him, during the official visit...maybe he had a chance to mumble some words in Spanish...BTW has WA ever been listened to, while speaking Spanish? Some spare words at least?

I agree. I listened to it several times. I believe she meant to say it in Dutch, and she did, but made the "hier" sound like a "here"...

Still the premier family during the Stadtholderless eras

The Nassaus were still the premier family during the two Stadtholderly eras, which is a misleading name because these periods were mainly in the provinces of Holland and Zealand only.

The First Stadtholderless Era was from 1650 (death of Willem II) until 1672.
All this time his son Prince Willem III (born after the death of Willem II) was declared 'Child of State' and was de-facto being given all the honours of a Sovereign Prince and Stadtholder. His two Regentesses, grandmother Princess Amalia of Orange, Countess of Solms-Braunfels and his mother Princess Mary (Stuart) of Orange, The Princess Royal were sharp on that and in Friesland and Groningen Willem-Frederik of Nassau was Stadtholder. During this time there undoubtedly was one premier family, living in the same palaces (Noordeinde and Huis ten Bosch) as Queen Beatrix now.

The Second Stadtholderless Era from 1702 (death of Willem III) until 1747: the Lords States have declared the Office of Stadtholder hereditary for the issue of Prince Willem III. But there was no issue. So Holland and Zealand declared the Stadtholderly Office 'vacant' and had no plans to seek for another Stadtholder. But in the meantime Prince Johan Willem Friso of Nassau was Stadtholder in Friesland and Groningen. His son, Prince Willem IV would become hereditary Stadtholder for all the provinces. So also during this era the princely family remained in the Netherlands and was undoubtedly the nation's premier family.

World War II meant the exile for the Dutch royal family from May 1940 to September 1944, but the Kingdom remained with an occupied Netherlands, free Netherlands West Indies, partly occupied Netherlands East Indies and the Queen in London, remaining Sovereign de facto and de jure.

So this means that only the French occupation of 1794-1813 must be corrected: 604 years - 19 years = 585 years the premier family of the Netherlands.

Ah yes.. many of my classmates from Dutch lessons, who have been speaking with the Prince on one of the receptions at the State Visit to Argentina in 2006, said he can speak spanish very good -- and that he even make jokes

Great pictures of a cute family!
The kids are all very charming (poor ,crying Alexia ).
It's funny to see that Máxima talks to her kids in 2 languages- Dutch and Spanish!

By the way, does she call Amalia "Ama"?
She says something like this... strange short form..

I think she referred to Amalia as "Ama" because maybe that is what Alexia knows her by.

I know this doesn't happen in the Netherlands, but if they did do such a thing, Willem-Alexander would be "Queen Father" not "King Father" because his daughter would be Queen

"Queen Father" sounds quite funny to me!

What a lovely family and how beautiful the children are. I always wonder why Friso, Mabel and their children are not present in such occasions.
It is a family thing isn't it, not an official one

Wonderful pictures! It's great seeing the family together again in Lech. I wasn't really expecting another photosession this winter as we already got to see the girls in Argentina, but this is great! I love the way Maxima recycles the girls outfits, Alexia wearing Amalia's old blue suit, and Ariana wearing Alexia's old outfit. Very sweet. Can't wait to see even more pictures and videos

Good pictures! Ariane is looking more like Alexia for some reason, to me. Maybe because she was wearing the old outfit, or maybe she was crying? I don't know. But she really did.

Why was Laurentien's little boy (forgot the child's name), wearing a Norwegian flag on his cap?
