I love Maxima so much, she just jumps off a plane without any make up on, goes to meetings wearing what looks like a bit of mascara and lipstick, doesn't do much with her hair. she always looks effortless, like she doesn't take herself too seriously, it's very appealing.



The Wedding of the century Willem-Alexander and Máxima (02/02/02)
Perhaps one of the most moving royal wedding moments of all time was Carel Kraayenhof’s rendition of Astor Piazzolla’s classic “Adiós Nonino.” Piazzolla wrote this tango the night his father died. The piece is understood to be a favourite of Máxima’s father, Jorge Zorreguieta, who was forbidden to attend his daughter’s wedding by Dutch Parliament due to his role as agriculture minister during Argentina’s brutal military dictatorship. “Adiós Nonino” reflects the sadness over a father’s absence, which is why it is understandable Máxima was so overwhelmed with emotion and unable to hide her tears during these moments.
