Looks like she was the guest of honor. Seated directly next to the host/president. President Biden of the USA was on the other side.

I feel Queen Máxima's heart, how much she might like to be Queen, is here, in the haute finance. She visibly feels like a fish in the water and can be meaningful indeed.

The Dutch Court and the Government fully support all this, with quite a considerable sum for her expenses made for the UN, but had she not had this opportunity, she probably would have become a depressed royal with a drinking problem or something.

She obviously knows her brief extremely well. She's clearly intelligent & a polyglot. A real credit to The Netherlands.

What I find interesting is the contrast between this & a hypothetical British queen consort. The British Government wouldn't let a member of the rf anywhere near such a role.

Does Dutch public opinion support her involvement as much as the court & government evidently do? Or is there some opposition?

I had hoped that the queen could squeeze in a visit to the Vatican when in Rome but perhaps time constraints and a busy schedule ruled that out.

Sometimes there is critic on the truly globetrotting Queen, not only leaving a gigantic carbon footprint but also focusing on all and everything but not so much at her own home. Luckily Covid was a blessing in disguise because it was the breakthrough of Zoom and Teams.

The Netherlands supports Queen Máxima's UN activities with an amnual budget of € 150.000,--. But the real costs are more as staff from the Court, from ministerial departments, from the State Information Service, from the security services, from embassies are used, as well logistic, facilitary, material support.

When Queen Máxima travels for the UN, she (and her UN-staff) usually use commercial flights. Also to inficate that she is in her UN role, which would become blurred when she arrives at an airport using one of the Government planes with Kingdom of the Netherlands on the livery.

Who is "we" ?

When the Vox Populi goes on the street: "What is your opinion on our globetrotting Queen working so hard on finances for women in Burkina Faso and Papua-New Guinea?"

Most likely the answer will be: "Burkina Faso? Papua-New Guinea? What about our bloody own neighbourhoods ?!"
