Well, this is definately her. Nobody else would combine a tiger print coat with tiger print sunglasses .

I suppose the Dutch press will be unable to use it, last time she was pictured on a private visit in Argentina a law suit followed. IMHO quite rediculous as many Dutch would find it newsworthy that the Queen is able to take a holiday in the middle of the week, after returning from an x-week summer holiday.

Marengo-Any news on her parents' health? I can imagine that she tries to see them whenever she can. I would think that the trans-continental flights might be too much for her father these days.

Queen Maxima has the most wonderful fashion sense and the personality to go with it. I don't always like her choices in clothing but I love her confidence to just put it out there!!!!

I often read also on other forums, that people thinks she is too often in Argentina for "holidays".
If her father would live near to her, I assume nobody would say, she takes "holiday" to see him... It is very sad, that they live so far from each other and she can not see him so often.

He was int he Netherlands in early summer I believe. He, his wife, daughter and grand daughters were pictured on a boat in Hoorn. That is the last thing I know. He seemed less frail than a few months before.

I must say I read very little about that in Dutch media. From the very first day in the Royal House, then Princess Máxima and now Queen, has always travelled all around the world with unbelievable zest. She is a globetrotting royal avant-la-lettre.

Indeed it is.Like every other kid she has/wants/wishes to see her parents as often as possible.It's just the distance that makes the difference for most,while you and I and most others can take a car or train and are there in a jiffy...She has to fly over 12 hours non-stop to see them and say hi.I say,if that's what it takes,so be it.Leave her alone for doing so.Private is private,especially on private expenses...she's not Barbie & Mike and if all that awfull tabloid lot would love us all to see her like that...She's not.

If Maxima has nothing listed in her agenda, then I do not see the big deal her leaving the country to see her father. She is not canceling or prosponing events to travel.

True.It's het mom's birthday,very private,very nice.Máxima takes the effort of the trip to show her love and gratefulness.After all,la famillia Argentina helps out here a lot too,if it were only to be there for the children when mom and dad are abroad.I mean really,very special relationship.Admirable!

I think that Lucien can agree with me that there are no discontent sounds in Dutch media that "she is too often in Argentina". No word about that (or I must have missed it).

nice to see maxima visiting her family :)
i wonder how often she goes to her native country and what she gets up to whilst there. they must be fairly quick visits, i assume, as we haven't seen her "absent" for long periods of time in the past...

The King and Queen own two big lots on the estate Muelle de Piedra near the town Villa la Angostura (bordering Chile). It is in the northern part of the enormous Nahuel Huapi National Park, and surrounded by lakes, forests and mountains. The park is considered to be one of most beautiful locations in the mountainous parts of Patagonia.

Also Queen Máxima's brother Martín lives there and has one of his restaurants in Villa la Angostura. (He also owns another restaurant in a luxurious hotel in San Carlos de Bariloche, the posh wintersport destination of South America). So it is not only for family. The best friends of the Queen probably also live in Argentina.

The Maxima has the right to visit her family, especially when her father is ill. Just be a little strange at this time when just returned from their summer holidays. He could have done the holiday season but.... anyway if not bother the Dutch people who else cares?

Nobody.It was her moms birthday and she surprised them all.

No discontent anywhere,not even in the press,so,so that settles that.
Summer holidays have nothing & nada to do with it.A Mom is a MOM and you only have one,regardless ones station in life,so one is there on birthdays!

^^^^^^^ yep, not even in the non-royaltic press was there any commentary on her trip, so it's just "a thing" on internet forums
(to be honest, i haven't even seen it mentioned in the dutch press; it's compketely regarded as private and of little "news value")

I am sure some magazines might have published it if they wouldn't have the media code around. But the press voluntarily sticks to the code and do not publish pictures of members of the RF outside of official events indeed.
