I think her smile is pretty natural. If it's over exaggerated it's because that's how her smile actually is. Maxima has a braod mouth and naturally when she smiles completely it looks sort of cartoonish. But I think it's sincere.

I think that's just her way to be over the top like that. It's not fake or unreal.

I love her mega-watt smile. its my favorite part of her. if you see old photos of her from before her marriage, she was smiling that way then too. it's just her style. and i think it's very expressive of her personality. she doesn't hold it in when she's happy. (or when she's sad for that matter).

Maxima seems very relaxed and natural all the time. She may not have had the best choice for a wedding dress, but, again, it tells you how normal she is. Sometimes she dresses well, sometimes she needs to go home and change. Her husband also seems very normal.
I'll never understand why the need to compare all the crown princess consorts. The five women all are very different and all have something different to offer, and each of them seems to be fully adored by their respective husbands.

As for Maxima--of course her smile and her clothing are over the top--that's Maxima! Respect her for what she is. Respect them all for what they are and what they individually offer. It's not a competition.

Thanks for the pics! She looks in good shape for someone who has recently given birth! I'm sure she'll slim down as she did after Amaila.

Actually it's WA who I think needs to get fitter!

Nice pictures! Apparently the crownprince and his family flew back to Italy after the wedding of Pieter-Christiaan and Anita.

'Prive' cannot be sued because of this right? the deal the couple made with the press (giving a public photoshoot and then the press would leav them alone during the holidays) was not a legal wone but made out of courtesy. 'Prive' said immediately that had no intention on holding itself to this agreement in the first place.

How can you deduce that she's unhappy? The pictures are small and fuzzy. You can't see if she's smiling, frowning or anything in particular.

You can barely make out the features of their faces let alone their mood or state of mind.

she have veey sad eyes in some photos.
Today the world has embraced new royal Princesses in the form of Mary of Denmark and Maxima of the Netherlands. But it's questionable whether even these hugely popular, increasingly glamorous future Queens will ever capture the world's imagination in the same way as Diana.
As Mario acknowledges: "She really was a true Princess".
