Well, I think that Maxima adds a great deal to any place that she visits. They might not be charities per se, but her presence certainly brings more notice than if she had not visited. I agree that the Dutch Royal Family don't neccessarily favor any particular "charity" over another. But they do have the foundations that they have set up that they take a leadership role in.

I believe this is her first visit to a scoutinggroup since she became a patron a year ago or so? I can´t remember many visits by the late Prince Claus either btw, who used to be the patron of Scouting Nederland. A pity she isn´t wearing a uniform though .

It would be nice if she could show a bit more interest in this patronage. I know that she has a very full schedule, but if she became patron over a year ago and this is her first visit, it does not seem so nice for me.

Scouting is really important in a young perrsons life. It ceratinly gives them something to do other than plop themselves behind a tv or computer all of the time, and I think that it helps give them skills that they can use in later life, so I wish that she were more proactive in this.

Although, for some reason, scouting seems like it would be a better patronage for Laurentien if you were to ask me.

I would say she re-edited the blue/brown outfit she wore to a visit to Turkey in March, while pregnant of Ariane (with a matching hat)...am I right?

Well, I think the Dutch Royals have a different way of dealing with their patronages. They are usually less involved with them and deal with other topics too. I don´t think that Maxima has a patronage about microfinance, likewise WA isn´t a patron of any watermanagment group.

To be a patron of something is more about the honour for the organsisation, a sort of recognition that they are making a difference in society etc.

I understand that, but still it would be nice if they took some interest in it. I think it would be nicer for them as well if they had an interest in the organizations for which they are patron. It would certainly give them a chance to express their knowledge on certain subjects, and also make those that are a member of said patronage feel more involved with the people that are head of their country.

She took over in 2005 & i think it wouldve been nice if she made a visit when she first took over. I think this might not be as big as a few other's she holds but it will do good for the scouts girls/boys who do take part. It would be nice for them to see their princess visiting them and as you mentioned, a uniform wouldve made it all

Oh my...has Máxima been reading TRF? Her hair is nicely groomed! Yippee!! Finally! Only one more thing to burn Máxima, only one more little thing - those blasted ankle-tie shoes you love wearing. They do nothing for your ankles and legs

I like the color of the jacket. It reminds me of the engagement dress.
