The Bandeau of old rose-cut diamonds (appr. 1725)
The diademe which was worn by Princess Máxima of the Netherlands during the banquet in honour of The Governor-General of Canada is a very old and valuable bandeau which consists of 25 quite exceptional and crystalclear rose-cut diamonds. The Princess wore earhangers -with another few large diamonds as pendants- together with this bandeau.

A fellow poster on the Royal Jewels Message Board could inform me that these diamonds -contrary to what I always thought- do not have a Russian origin via Queen Anna Paulovna of the Netherlands born Grand Duchess of Russia, (1795 - 1865) but were a gift from Willem IV Prince of Orange, Fürst zu Nassau, Stadtholder of the United Provinces, (1711 - 1751) to his wife Princess Anne of Great Britain and Ireland, The Princess Royal, Princess of Hannover (1709-1759).

This bandeau is not as spectacular as for example the diamonds-and-ruby diademe worn by Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, but it is not a too big guess that this set, worn by Princess Máxima for the Canadian visit, is one of the most valuable sets worn by all the 'new Princesses' so far (Mathilde, Mette-Marit, Mary, Letizia, Laurentien, Mabel, Claire, etc.) due to the unbelievable size of the stones, their carat-quality and their old age.

I really adore the look of CP Maxima especially at this stage. She looks so radiant and beautiful. I have also noticed this with the royal ladies who are and were pregnant.

I think what my mother said was really true that when you are a pregnant woman, you tend to look more radiant as always and love to look beautiful more than what's usual.

I really admire those pregnant royal women like CP Maxima who still work hard as a royal even when they are pregnant. They also never fail to look good.

Lady Cathrine Rose 05-25-2005 03:01 PM
I sure hope this Gov offered his seat to the very beautiful, very pregnant cp Maxima!

Pregnant Princess Maxima unwell, but okay

27 May 2005

AMSTERDAM — Pregnant with her second child, Princess Maxima is said to be feeling unwell and cancelled a planned visit to Rotterdam on Thursday.

The princess was due to attend the opening of the second Internationale Architectuur Biënnale at the Nieuwe Luxortheater.

Princess Maxima was not feeling well enough to attend the event.

However, the Government Information Service (RVD) said neither the princess nor her unborn child are suffering serious complications

Princess Maxima was also forced to cancel several working appointments when she was pregnant with Princess Amalia in 2003.

The Argentinean-born princess was also advised by medical staff at that time to take an extended period of rest. Crown Prince Willem-Alexander fulfilled his wife's functions on Thursday, officially opening the art exhibition.

Princess Maxima still has a busy time in front of her, including a visit to Paris on 20 and 21 June for a United Nations meeting over micro credit schemes.

Maxima is due to give birth in July.

I don´t think that she can travel to Paris on June 20th. I believe that her child will be born in JUne and that it won´t take long till we can celebrate the birth of their second child.

Exactly my thoughts :D
