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.

 thankyou  for that informative information. I think Willem & Maxima are doing well so far. Maxima seems to have hit the ground running after the Inauguration. She has been one busy Queen since then.

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.

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.

I think she is doing very well in her role. I really like the outfits she wears especially some recent ones. She has that charismatic smile and really seems to enjoy people.   thumbsup
