Inès Zorreguieta Cerruti does not fullfill the requirements for the job of Director of Office of the Directorate General of Administration for the Executive Secretary of the National Council for the Coordination of Social Policies of the President and apparently it is no problem: the appointment is con autorización excepcional and with retroactive working, starting December 10th 2015, the day that President Mauricio Macri was sworn in...

Picture: Queen Máxima and President Mauricio Macri a few weeks ago in Davos...

According to the Dutch papers it is a problem; they are talking about 'in opspraak', which translates as 'scandal' apparently. The Argentinian statebulletin they are not making it a secret that it is curious as they write about 'a high exception'. She does not have the right resume, the right academic background or the right network among civil servants.

Apparently the president already fired 20.000 civil servants that were brought in office by his predecessor. Many of those had émpty' jobs. It seems he may be doing the same now, Ines Z. is being paid a full time salary for 180 days of work.

i have to agree. as far as i know, ines is way too young to be a director of any sort, so it just looks to the world like she was put in her position because of who she is related to. i am saddened, because it just shows how corrupt certain circles are. i will give her for now the benefit of the doubt though, until we find out what kind of background she has and what the position really entitles before judging but this doesn't look very good in my opinion.

and... gosh! isn't her title a mouthful? maybe it's created as such to distract us from knowing what she actually does... :)

Inés has fulfilled an academic education (psychology and human sciences) at university. This is Inès her thesis at university, about gender differences and their relationship to suicide and related behaviors:

She seems a smart girl, like her sister Máxima (an economist).

The RVD twittered about the matter. They denied that Queen Máxima was in any way involved in this issue. They also point out that previously Inès worked for the present Argentinian minister of Social Affairs. That puts the claims of the Argentinian press in a different perspective I suppose, as they said Inès had no relevant work experience and no contacts among civil servants.

So all by all it is a storm in a cup of tea, but of course the label 'nepotism' will remain above Inès, while she maybe did it all herself, her career, without her sister in far-way Netherlands.

i guess that sheds some light and makes me more comfortable about the situation. i doubt they would have positioned themselves if maxima did indeed have an influence over this. the fact that ines worked for the minister before is also comforting.

shame on the argentinian press for disseminating rumours that are hurtful and erroneous just to make headlines.

I would think that the Queen and the RVD would be the first to proactively ensure that no nepotism was involved in this particular appointment. With a view to the sensitivity with which the Zorreguieta family has always been associated since one of its members became a member of the Dutch Royal Family, its members will also be doubly careful in ensuring any possibility of scandal be attached to their name.

I'm going to do here a summary of Queen Maxima's family.

Maxima has 6 brothers and sisters.

From the first marriage of his father, Jorge Horacio Zorreguieta Stefanini, she has three half-sisters:
María Zorreguieta López Gil * 1956
Ángeles Zorreguieta López Gil * 1958
Dolores Zorreguieta López Gil * 1963

Then, from the wedding of his parents has 2 brothers and 1 sister (already deceased):
Martín Zorreguieta Cerruti * 1972
Juan Zorreguieta Cerruti * 1982
Inés Zorreguieta Cerruti * 1984 - 2018

I couldn't find any information on Maxima's nephews.

Does Juan or Martín have any children? I was just wondering if the AAA princesses have any Argentine cousins.

It seems she has two nephews and one niece:

María Zorreguieta López Gil (1956)
x Adrián Vilov

Ángeles Zorreguieta López Gil (1958)
x 1. Fernando Galante
= Sebastián Galante Zorreguieta
= Facundo Galante Zorreguieta
x 2. Adrián Vojnov
= Ana Vojnov Zorreguieta

Dolores Zorreguieta López Gil (1965)
x Harmond Grad Lewis

Máxima Zorreguieta Cerruti (1971)
x Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands
= Catharina-Amalia of the Netherlands
= Alexia of the Netherlands
= Ariane of the Netherlands

Martín Zorreguieta Cerruti (1972)
x Mariana Andrés

Juan Zorreguieta Cerruti (1982)
x Andrea Wolf (m. 2014)

Inés Zorreguieta Cerruti (1984)

I don't have the impression there is much of a relationship between Máxima and her brothers (on the one hand) and their half-sisters (on the other hand), so I don't think the princesses meet their half-cousins regularly - they most likely ran into them once in a while when visiting their grandfather and of course will have seen them at their grandfather's funeral.

Edit: according to wikipedia both Martín and Juan have issue (and Jorge Zorreguieta would have 12 grandchildren in total) but it is unclear what the source would be of that information (wikipedia labeled it stating 'This section needs additional citations for verification.').

According to Argentine naming convention, a child receives only one surname, that of their father.

According to the official website of the Royal House, the Queen was born as Máxima Zorreguieta (no Cerruti).

Gen 1.
Jorge Horacio ZORREGUIETA STEFANINI
* Buenos Aires 18 I 1928
+ Buenos Aires 8 VIII 2017
x
María del Carmen CERRUTI CARRICART
* Pergamino 8 IX 1944

Gen. 2
Juan Antonio ZORREGUIETA BONORINO
* Buenos Aires 19 IX 1899
+ Buenos Aires 14 I 1959
x
Cesina STEFANINI BORELLA
* Buenos Aires 4 VIII 1901
+ Buenos Aires 5 IV 1999

Jorge Horacio CERRUTI DE SAUTU
* Pergamino 7 XII 1911
+ Buenos Aires 17 XI 1992
x
María del Carmen CARRICART CIEZA
* Buenos Aires 17 V 1915
+ Capitán Sarmiento 15 I 1999

Gen 3.

It seems Argentina is one of the few countries in Latin-America that officially uses only one surname while the second surname is used by many in social situations.

That would be interesting- the social media pages of both men do not give any indication that they have issue.
Wasn't it public that Martín had divorced Mariana many years ago.
Even Juan's FB page is very "bachelor-like"- it could very well be that both men take very good care to keep their families off social media.

It would've been good for the AAA princesses to have had cousins their age to grow up in tandem with-to always have a link with their mother's motherland.
