Pretty rude of the French to boo Maxima. What business is it of theirs what system of government the Dutch choose to use? I prefer a constitutional monarchy to an elected presidency, but it doesn't mean I'd boo the President of the United States.

You are absolutely correct. I enjoy the fact the many countries have quite different forms of government. I enjoy learning about them all. Not one is 100% correct or 100% wrong. Just quite different with different rules and laws. To boo an official of another country is just ill mannered. I always think when I read of such things that the booing person's mother sure didn't raise him well Or, maybe the parents had no manners to start with. Shame they exist.

Were they booing her or the Frech Minister Frederic Mitterand? The Sarkozy government is not terribly popular after all. Maxima might just have been caught in the crossfire.

I can assure you that the vast majority of the French are most pleased to welcome any kind of royal people and doesn't shoot "Vive la République" at the sight of any crowned head. I suspect the booing was more or less directed to the french minister of Culture, Frederic Mitterrand (the nephew of the late President,) member of the uber unpopular Sarkozy's government (and well known for his deference toward royalty) rather than this poor Maxima (because let's face it, the vast majority doesn't even know who she is).
So please don't generalise to the entire french people because one or two left wing morron thought it was fun to express some uncanny revolutunary feeling in front of an unpopular minister and a rather obscure Princess ( this incident, as well as Maxima's visit were not even mentioned by the national press).
1789 is over folks, we don't behead kings anymore ...

I can understand you disapointment but this kind of comments generalising the attitude of some morrons to an entire nation are higly disapoiting if not insulting.

Seems obvious. Wa can add that Frederic Mitterand is the nephew of the late left wing president François Mitterand and is more or less seen to have betrayed his family convictions to become one of the Sarkozy's ministers. He's well known for his deference toward all things regarding royalty too. This demonstation was of course directed to him and not this poor Maxima (a rather unknown figure here in France).

Originally HRH The Prince of Orange was planned to be in attendance as well,but he was in London with family (HM) visiting Princess Mabel & the children and ofcourse his brother Prince Friso.
Just to clarify are you saying that Queen Beatrix accompanied WA to London?

You are right. Perhaps, she was not the object of their boos, so we cannot jump to conclusions. I guess, everyone is touchy, because of the Prince Friso crisis.

I didn't mean to generalise. I feel that those who did the booing were being rude, whatever their motive in doing so.

I think most people in that crowd didn't know who Maxima or Friso are unless they were royalists.

Well, to some extent booing is," Freedom of Speech", and it can be rude, but we republicans, accept that you can make such comments on whomever.

Friso, probably not. Maxima yes, seeing as the event was an official engagement she would have either been announced or mentioned by her title. They wouldn't have shouted viva le republic at anyone.

Nico's explanation seems the most logical one. I can't imagine that many French know princess Máxima. And even less will know enough about her to actually bother starting to 'boo'.
Didn't Frédéric Mitterand write the preface for one of the books of the late Countess of Paris?
