As Kate Middleton settles into her new life, she need only look to Princess Maxima, wife of the heir to the Dutch throne, for an example of how to make the tricky transition from commoner to royal.

Dutch Crown Prince Willem-Alexander's engagement 10 years ago to a woman whose father was a minister in an Argentine dictatorship sounded like a gift to the Dutch republican movement seeking to end the nearly 200-year-old monarchy.

I like Maxima, but I wished she did more for the Netherlands. She does alot for the UN. I like her daughters, My favorite royal at the moment is Princess Amalia.

Amalia seems to be very similar to her mother, the three girls are very cute. I thought she had a lot of patronages in the Netherlands, although she also works for the UN.

Apart from the question whether Máxima later next king Willem-Alexander queen may be, the parliament shortly after the throne change answer one important question. It is necessary by law to be appointed a regent in case 'the King' dies while his heir - then Princess Amalia - still a minor.

At the beginning of the week, there was a lot of up discussion in the government if Maxima should become queen. In the Netherlands the woman becomes automatically queen when her husband becomes king, but not the other way around. Some parties didn't want Maxima to become queen, but this was overruled by the other parties.

Apparently, I'm not in the minority for liking Maxima better than the family she married into! She took The Netherlands by storm. ...

And I simply cannot imagine Kate doing lice checks for children! Such behaviors would be out of character for her. ...

Shes´always smiling, has a style of her own, too many bright colors probably, but it´s her brand. Maxima as you know has a degre in Economics which has helped her to become involved in Microcredit projects. As far as I know she´s an advisor to the UN in this field.

No time is wasted. King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima will visit all 12 provinces of the Netherlands in little less than a month. In November they will travel to the Dutch Caribbean islands too, it was announced on Friday.

'Joyous entries' are an ancient tradition, dating back to the Middle Ages when new sovereign presented themselves to the main sites and regions of their Kingdom to renew the pledges and links between them. Nowadays it is still maintained in the European monarchies - in a different form.

It was Willem-Alexander's ancestor who invaded England and installed himself as William III. Despite that shared history, the Dutch monarchy is much less in the public eye than its British counterpart.

The Dutch monarchy "doesn't have the pomp that the British monarchy can trot out," said James Kennedy, a historian at the University of Amsterdam who has advised Willem-Alexander.

Dutch monarchs do not have coronations because, in the absence of a state church, there is nobody to place the crown on the king or queen's head. Instead, the crown rests unworn beside the monarch throughout the investiture.

Even the relatively low-key nature of that ceremony has its critics these days, however. Sixteen lawmakers say they will either not attend the gathering of lawmakers in the New Church, where Willem-Alexander will swear to uphold the constitution, or they will refuse to swear an oath back to their new monarch.

As the Netherlands grapples with recession and implements budget cuts, some would also like to see the monarch be paid less and pay taxes.

"She (Beatrix) is very rich, she earns a lot of money, she doesn't pay taxes. She's laughing at us while we pay," said Hans Maessen, leader of a republican campaign to cut the head of state's pay. Forbes in 2011 estimated the net worth of Beatrix and her family at $220 million.

A petition calling for Willem-Alexander's salary to be cut to 150,000 euros, down from his mother's 850,000 euros, has collected more than 19,000 signatures.

Willem-Alexander said he was happy to be paid less or pay tax, but warned that cuts would result in job cuts in his staff.

I think the BRF should pay attention to what is going on with the other Monarchies.

Willem-Alexander and Maxima solemn for first official engagement as King and Queen


King Willem-Alexander and his wife Queen Maxima's beaming smiles and brightly-coloured outfits were nowhere to be seen at their first official engagement as the new monarchs of the Netherlands on Saturday.

Willem-Alexander, 46, and Maxima, his Queen consort, were in Amsterdam over the weekend to attend a memorial for Dutch soldiers lost during World War II alongside Prime Minister Mark Rutte.

Maxima's eye-catching wardrobe, seen by the world during the national celebrations, was replaced with an all-black ensemble for the somber occasion, including coat, gloves, hat, clutch and shoes.

Not sure about the sleeves but the colour really suits Queen Maxima. Kate should wear more trouser suits especially when it is windy.

The guy in the greyish suit holding the umbrella in the background is the governor of South-Holland, Jan Franssen. Franssen is gay himself so I think the presence of the Queen was special for him in more than one way.

Queen Maxima Style: 6 Reasons Why We Want To Shop With The Dutch Royal(PHOTOS)

Queen Maxima made her very fashionable debut as the newly-crowned queen consort to King Willem-Alexander at the Dutch inauguration festivities last month. We'd always noticed her flamboyant outfits, but when she whipped out four stunning looks for that big day, we knew she was a venerable style icon in the making.

Maxima clearly has plenty of wisdom to impart, so we think she'd make the perfect shopping partner. While we have demure royals like Kate Middleton and Princess Charlene to guide us, isn't a mall buddy supposed to get you out of your shell and convince you to buy those shoes you know you don't need? Yah, that would totally be Maxima.

So in honor of the royal's 42nd birthday today (May 17th), here's exactly why we'd love to hit up the shops with Queen Maxima

The new professor will fill the Prince Claus Chair in Development and Equity at the University in Utrecht. She will focus her work on language and socio-cognitive development of young children.

The fact that this new professor will fill the Prince Claus Chair is of course the reason a royal was present at the inauguration. Normally the Dutch royals will not be present if and when a new professor is inaugurated.

Ex-Argentine dictator dies
 
By CNN Staff
 
May 17, 2013 --

 (CNN) -- Jorge Rafael Videla, a former Argentinian dictator, has died, the state news agency said, quoting a prison official Friday.
 
Videla passed away Tuesday morning of natural causes at the Marcos Paz prison, according to Victor Hortel, the director of the Federal Penitentiary Service.
 
The former leader was serving a life sentence for committing crimes against humanity, He came to power in 1976 after the coup and ruled Argentina until 1981.

05/2013  Calls for Queen Maxima to clear father's junta role

As Dutch Queen Maxima reaches the zenith of her popularity, calls remain for her to come clean on her father's role in Argentina's former military junta.
http://www.expatica.com/nl/news/dutch-news/Calls-for-Queen-Maxima-to-clear-fathers-junta-role_264035.html

How would she know anything of what her father was doing? She had nothing to do with it.


Title: Re: King Willem Alexander & Queen Máxima: News and Pics
Post by: Countess of Holland on May 23, 2013, 05:35:14 pm
True, she didn't know about it, she was a young girl at the time. But she did profit from her fathers involvement with the junta, that enabled her father to send her to an expensive private school in Buenos Aires for example.
And there have been numerous children who have taken a distance from their parents political ideas, children of nazi's come to mind. But also an older half-sister of Maxima (forgot her name) has denounced her father well before Maxima became known in The Netherlands. Of course this half-sister was/ is several years older than Maxima so the situation isn't entirely the same.

And although not fair, it has happened in The Netherlands, that children of NSB-members (the party that sided with the Germans during WW II) were discriminated against. They were bullied, stigmatised and had to suffer for their parents' choices during 1940-1945.
And there is the strange situation that we cannot 'fault' Maxima for her fathers actions, but can 'praise' her husband for the actions of his ancestors and even give him a throne because of it.
Monarchy is all about ancestors and their actions after all.

But that having said, Maxima is doing a great job.

Every child benefits from what their parents do but it is never their fault unless they are old enough and understand and choose to condone instead of condemn. If the parent is doing something wrong of course.

Eye opening I didn't know this.
Some of the press will always want Maxima to speak about it.
I didn't know her older sister, denounced their father.
I think Maxima's smartly avoids discussing it, but it won't stop the press bringing it up.

King Willem-Alexander will take centre stage at today's 2014 budget presentation when he makes his debut speech from the throne in front of ministers, MPs, senators and other officials.

The speech, largely written by the prime minister's team, outlines government policy for the coming year, much of which has been already leaked.

However, Willem-Alexander is the first king to make the speech in 126 years and today is also the first time a queen - Máxima - will sit next to a reigning monarch.

Commentators are already speculating what sort of presentation the new king will give.

'I think we will notice the difference with the first words,' Leiden University language professor Marc van Oostendorp told Trouw. 'Willem-Alexander has a much less distant, royal sound than his mother.'

Quote
The 42-year-old royal made a fashion faux pas today when she stepped out with her husband King Willem-Alexander to welcome French President Francois Hollande to Holland today.

The mother-of-three, who is known for her love of colour, chose a satin teal dress for the public appearance - which featured a peplum-style skirt and fell just below the knee.

Unfortunately, the downside to the fitted dress was the cropped, oversized sleeves which looked odd worn with a pair of nude satin gloves.

This morning, the Dutch King and Queen participated in the annual Day of the Volunteer NL Doet. They worked at a petting zoo in Rijswijk, not far from Rijswijk. The petting zoo includes a small restaurant and both the zoo/ farm and the restaurant are being run by people with a mental illness (f.e. Down Syndrom). The King helped drilling holes in the ground to place new poles while the Queen painted cages for small animals.

http://nos.nl/koningshuis/artikel/626210-koningspaar-in-actie-voor-nldoet.html

After their participation in Rijswijk, the couple went home to change because this evening, the couple will be in Baden-Baden (Germany) where the Queen will receive the Deutsche Medienpreise (the German Media-prize) for her ongoing support to micro-finance/ inclusive finance.
It is said that the Queen had German lessons the last couple of months so she will be deliver the speech in German. That makes it the fifth language of the Queen who speaks Spanish, English, Dutch, French and now German.

Holland’s Queen Maxima proved to be a distraction for David Cameron, Barack Obama and Francois Hollande at the Nuclear Security Summit in The Hague.

The 40-year-old appeared to court more attention than her husband King Willem-Alexander last night at the Royal Palace Huis ten Bosch.

The monarchs greeted their international guests before the official dinner.

As Britain's Prime Minster David Cameron shook the King's hand he was making eye contact with the blonde-haired queen.

Similarly French President Francois Hollande directed his gaze at the mother-of-three as he greeted her husband.

US President Obama appeared to share a light moment with the Queen as she smiled while he laughed - again her husband looked on.

At one point the couple visited a new interactive museum and the museum works with facial scans for the passes of the employees and visitors. The King and Queen also let their faces be scanned.

At one point, Queen Maxima asked if her picture came out all right. The King answered 'Dear, a picture with you always comes out all right'.

The dress the Queen was wearing was an old dress of Princess Beatrix who wore the dress in 1981 when she paid a state-visit to Belgium.

Not my favourite by the way (not a fan of that shade of green or the feathery bottom), but it is frugal!

The King and Queen were in Zeeland for the granting of the Four Freedoms Award. The Four Freedoms Awards were named after the four freedoms that president Roosevelt (FDR) named in one of his speeches; the freedom of speech, the freedom of religion, the freedom of want and the freedom from fear.

Every other year the awards are being given in Zeeland, the alternate year the awards are given in a ceremony in the US. The reason for Zeeland is of course that the Dutch ancestors of president Franklin Roosevelt were from Zeeland (the president took the oath in 1932 on his Dutch family bible).

One of the recipients was Malala, the Pakistani girl who was almost killed by the extreme muslims because she championed education for women. She received the Freedom from Fear award.

The International Red Cross/ Red Crescent Organization received the International Four Freedoms Award.

Yes Maxima wore a green gown the other week that had woolly fabric that resembled Big Bird! But, hey, she is tall enough and flamboyant enough to carry it off! She can wear a tiara and other jewels well, too. That's the advantage of being very tall and slender. I suppose Maxima must be over 6ft tall.

At least the Queen has kept her private parts private. And in the beginning Maxima was often criticized for being 'too conservative' in her clothing style. But as years progressed, she became more confident in her role and as a result she felt at ease to start experimenting with colours, styles etc. Good for her I'd say!

Post by: Countess of Holland on June 04, 2014, 12:37:43 pm
I am no big fan of the dress myself. But the point I was trying to make is that you can't compare the two. Queen Maxima is, for one, ten years older than Kate, she is from another continent, she has a different background and she has more royal years behind her. As such, she seems more secure with herself and that enables her to experiment with colours and styles. And obviously not all experiments work out fine.
Kate is very often opting for the safe option...the stewardess-look. And even those safe options have failed. But who knows how Kate will develop in the next years when she is starting to feel more secure in her role. Although I must say that so far the development of Kate is quite disappointing but she might surprise us in the future (if the BRF gives her a royal future to begin with).

I really like the Black and yellow dress with the big bow.

The green dress is looking great on Maxima, but maybe only because she is a beautifull looking woman with a charisma to match.

The zipper is too arty for my taste. I would guess the designer is one Maxima wants to supports - so she accepts the zipper. It might also be an expression of her selfconfidence and humour.


Title: Re: King Willem Alexander & Queen Máxima: News and Pics
Post by: Countess of Holland on June 04, 2014, 04:16:05 pm
I understand that Maxima has asked to be informed about the examination work of the last-year students at two of the Dutch fashion institutes, including the one in Arnhem where Jan Taminiau graduated. I think a sign that she is planning to support young designers that recently graduated (or are soon-to-be graduated). I would applaud that very much, helping young graduates and giving these young designers a stage to get their name out.

Maxima proves that a smile is a girl's best accessory.

She comes across as very warm, gracious, confident and fun.  Look how Prince Albert takes a shine to her. 

She seems genuine and people connect with her.

I love that she has fun with fashion.  I might not always love her style but it generally works for her. 

She works hard and is serious about her job but doesn't take herself to seriously.  I like that. 

I think she's just one of those people that livens up a room, that you want to be seated next to at dinner.

The first state-visit of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima (all the others were short visits or official vists) of his reign. Destination: Poland.

The reason for the choice of Poland is because the economic ties between the two countries are very strong (and this important for both economies), there are many Polish people working in The Netherlands and of course the Free Polish Forces played a very important role in the liberation of The Netherlands, almost 70 years ago.
One Polish regiment was given the Military Willemsorder, the highest Dutch order, because of their actions in September 1944 to liberate the south of The Netherlands. The battle that followed, Operation Market Garden, was immortalised in the movie A Bridge too Far.

The first pictures of the state visit. Click on 'volgende' to see more picture, 9 in total.

Today is a day of national mourning the The Netherlands. The first bodies of victims of the flight MH17 will be arriving today at Eindhoven Airport.
The King and Queen will be present at the official ceremony at the airport, as will several members of the Dutch cabinet as well as many relatives of the victims.

After the ceremony at the airport, the remains of the victims will be driven to Hilversum where an identification team will work round the clock for the next weeks (and perhaps more) in order to get all the bodies identified as soon as possible.

Yes Countess - I have been paying close attention to this - my deepest sympathy to all the families but to the Dutch people.  On US news they have been emphasizing how - as a percent of the population - this has been even worse than 9/11 was for the US.  Also the President yesterday reminded Americans of the support the Netherlands gave the US from our very beginnings -  the revolutionary war and hence the deep ties of friendship between our countries.  This is a terrible day for all but especially for the Netherlands.  You and your countrymen and women will be in my thoughts today.


Title: Re: King Willem Alexander & Queen Máxima: News and Pics
Post by: Countess of Holland on July 23, 2014, 11:48:24 am
Thanks. And the victims lived all over the country so many cities and villages mourn the loss.
I myself am lucky that I didn't know anyone on the plane, but a colleague of mine is a volunteer of a local hockeyteam (field-hockey) and he knew two of the families.
It is really heartwrenching.

As for the long ties between our countries, that is absolutely true and several of your Founding Fathers have lived in The Netherlands and were inspired by the Dutch Act of Abjuration in which the Dutch provinces renounced Felipe II of Spain as their King. It is said that Franklin used the Dutch act as an inspiration and model for the US Declaration of Independence.
And of course the Dutch Rpublic was the first country in the world to recognize the US as an independent state by the act of greeting a US warship (the Andrew Doria) by lowering the flag of the Dutch Republic when the ship sailed into the harbour of St Eustacius in the Caribean. And the second country to form a friendship treaty with the US.

Obviously the US have done more than their share to repay that friendship with the liberation of Europe and the Marshall Aid that followed.

The ceremony at Eindhoven Airport. As saddened as I am, at this moment, I am also proud to be Dutch when seeing pictures of the 1 minute of silence all over the country, and the dignified manner in which the first 40 victims were received in The Netherlands and are driven to Hilversum as we speak.

Thousands are lining up next to the highway, people standing on fly-overs, cars in the opposite directions slowing down and coming to a stand still. The Dutch are truly united in grief at this moment.

I agree. Maxima can look stunning but she also has had several scr*w ups when it comes to fashion and clothing and this is one of them. It looks like she forgot to check herself in the mirror before leaving the bathroom and part of her dress got stuck somewhere.

And that for a visit of the governor general of Canada. And mind you...he was there to commemorate the Canadian troops who have played a major role in the liberation of The Netherlands (while the US troops went east-ward towards Berlin). A bit more decorum would have been better. Also in light of the tragedy that occurred in Canada only last week.

Title: Re: King Willem Alexander & Queen Máxima: News and Pics
Post by: Alexandrine on October 29, 2014, 02:53:05 pm
Max is that max.

I still don't think her as an appropriate candidate for Queen (father story) but from the commoners royals she may be the best.

She can talk business with anyone, speak several languages rather well and look always happy.

Sometimes she looks too much but you will never ask yourself who is the queen because she looks like one.

From what I've read she seems to fit in the dutch country though maybe there are negative reviews that I don't know about?


Title: Re: King Willem Alexander & Queen Máxima: News and Pics
Post by: Countess of Holland on October 29, 2014, 03:44:03 pm
As a Dutch citizen I will respond to that.

* Maxima's Dutch for starters is not all that good. And I am not talking about an accent, no one will fault her for having an accent, but she makes rather annoying mistakes in her grammar (she would say for example 'x is bigger as y' while she should use 'than' (or 'dan' in Dutch) and this is especially odd since the English and Dutch rule are the same in this respect and even the words, than and dan, look alike and sound almost the same). Now I maybe nitpicking, but proper grammar is important in my opinion.

* There are people in The Netherlands who still have a problem with her father and although you cannot blame her for the actions of her father, it is unmistakenly true that she has benefitted from the poor decisions her father made. She would not be raised in the same social circle had her father declined to become secretary under Videla. Furthermore is says something about the environment in whoch she grew up, hardly an environment that hails democracy and that is somewhat troublesome.

* Many people feel that Maxima has brought the 'nouveau riche' into the RF. The Dutch royals were never that flashy, their vacation homes were rather private and not that luxurious, Beatrix still uses the small ship she received when she was 18. And then there was the over-the-top villa in Mozambique, that was changed into an over-the-top villa in Greece, the King recently bought a speedboat for 850,000 euro's, apparently the same one Abaramovich has (now call me a reverse snob, but in my book everything a money-grabbing Putin-buddy like Abaramovich has, is tainted and I would not spend my good money on it).

On the other hand, people are appreciative of how hard she works and there is general support for her work for the UN involving micro-credit/ inclusive finance. Whenever she is in New York and is welcomed by the UN SG Mr. Ban Ki-Moon, the press reports on it with a certain sense of pride.
And she is doing a good job representing The Netherlands, the trade-missions were an idea of the King, but you can tell that she loves them as well, and with Dutch design becoming more and more important as an industry in The Netherlands, any royal support in this respect is very welcome and Maxima happily obliges.
And she doesn't flash her panties, she is solemn at memorials and she has never been one to vanish into thin air for weeks on end like Waity, not even during her pregnancies. Although during the first pregnancy, she was given bedrest by the OB/GYN in the final stages of the pregnancy (starting around week 30 IIRC).

It all depends on who you ask I think. I would give Maxima a solid 7.5 (out of 10). As for a comparison of the commoner-born royals, that is difficult to say. Mathilde is a bit too quiet for my taste, but the Belgian nature/ culture is more quiet and reserved than the Dutch nature. So for Belgium, she is perfect. Mary of Denmark seems to be doing a lot of good things as well and she doesn't have the father-problem that Maxima has (who would have a problem with a math-professor?). Letizia seems to be growing in her role now and becomes more certain of herself, most likely because Felipe gives her that trust and the room to grow into that role.

Now Mette-Marit is a lost cause for me and has been from day 1. I am sorry but that is how I feel about it. She was looking for a man to take care of her and although I am no die-hard feminist, I can't warm to women who don't take control of their own life. And that is what I have against Kate as well..she waited around for years and never took control. She got good opportunities in terms of education and she threw it all away to be someone's doormat. I can't respect someone who doesn't respect herself.

Post by: Alexandrine on October 29, 2014, 04:05:01 pm
^ I tried to only review her on what she does personally so clothes and events.

As I said before I still don't think she should have married WA because of her father. It's just a dimplomatic black hole and as you mentioned it also brings question on what type of environment she grew up.

Now about the houses/holidays and then that weird relationship with the press it's something both WA and Max agreed as a couple and who knows who is at fault. Not that she doesn't have responsibility of course just that it is shared.

It's not often that a king comes face-to-face with an emperor but that is exactly what happened when the Netherland's King Willem-Alexander was welcomed to Japan by the country's Emperor Akhito.

The Dutch royals are beginning a six-day tour of the country, and were greeted by an honour guard as they arrived in the Japanese capital.

After a visit to a design museum and a gorgeous oriental garden, the two finished their first day with a lavish state banquet thrown in their honour.

Queen Maxima of The Netherlands lived up to her royal style icon status in a bright plum ensemble as she attended an agricultural event in Ultretch today.

The Dutch royal, 43, wore a matching voluminous blouse and A-line skirt in hues of vibrant plum as she smiled and waved at onlookers while making her way inside the building.

She accessorised her outfit with a purple bangle, bold gold leaf-design necklace and patent nude clutch bag and court shoes.

Queen Maxima is in China at the moment. She makes the visit as the special representative of UNSG Ban Ki-Moon on inclusive financing/ micro-credit.
The visit will last for five days.

On Tuesday, she will have a dinner with the wife of the Chinese president. The presidential couple has just finished state-visits to Australia, New Zealand and Fiji.
The Queen will also have a visit with the president of the Chinese Central Bank and the president of the financial authority for China (counterpart of the SEC).

So far I can't find any English articles about the visit.

King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands paid their respects on Tuesday for the millions killed during the Holocaust, as they were joined by other European royals at the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. Joining Willem-Alexander and Maxima were Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway.

As the snow fell over the area, the royals, which also included King Phillipe and Queen Mathilde of Belgium and Prince Frederick of Denmark, walked with some of the last remaining survivors of the camps, along with family and friends, as people laid wreaths and lit candles along the 'wall of death'.

Long day, Maxima? Dutch queen ditches her heels for flats after a whirlwind tour of her country's Zeeland province (including an impromptu cookery class)
Dressed in head-to-toe pink, Queen Maxima was her elegant best on Friday as she embarked on an action-packed visit to the west coast of the Netherlands.
The Dutch royal, 45, looked chic and summery in the sleeveless tweed number as temperatures reached a balmy 26 degrees in the Zeeland province.
Maxima, who is married to husband King Willem-Alexander, showed off her slender frame and toned arms, adding a pink chain bag and heels - before later changing into a pair of flats for comfort.

I wager it was because of Maxima's marriage to Willem; that kind of connection protects at a platinum level of it all. So no justice there. Of course he knew, anyone in that regime KNEW what was going down and I am certain that Maxima's marriage has protected him immensely.

On one hand, Maxima is a huge asset, but on the other, she benefited from her father's position in a tyrannical regime that murdered so many. Without such an upper class background and advantages, I am certain that she would have ended up not able to meet and marry a Crown Prince like Willem.

Angry mother dramatically confronts Queen Maxima of The Netherlands with a letter about her disabled son's educational needs - as the royal's security staff hold her back


Queen Maxima had a dramatic end to a royal engagement when she was accosted by an angry mother during a visit to the non-profit YETS Foundation in Schiedam, in south Holland.

The Queen, 47, had just finished speaking to participants in the award-winning youth programme when the woman broke out of the audience and ran towards her.

She wanted to pass a letter to the Queen directly detailing her disabled son's educational and welfare issues, after receiving unsatisfactory responses to previous written appeals to the palace.

'He's been home for eleven months,' she shouted as security guards tried to restrain her from approaching the Queen, telling her they would pass on the letter.

In the end, she managed to approach Queen Maxima who took the note away with her.https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6163571/Queen-Maxima-goes-barefoot-basketball-court-meets-players-Schiedam.html
