Maxima and Mathijs were a very charming combination.
I’m always impressed by Maxima’s work ethic.
The interview was a pleasure to watch.

A short video:



I know it is a field lab but after such a long lock down it nearly makes me nervous to see so many people together.

It seems that the Queen changed outfits between the two events.

I didn't know that she plays guitar. That she enjoys singing was already known (and she passed it on to at least Alexia). In the recent interview she also talked about it in relation to her relationship with her younger sister Ines, how the two of them enjoyed singing together (her sister had some music videos of songs she wrote herself if I am not mistaken).
