Queen Maxima’s foreign visits → Dutch Caribbean, 2011

In 2011, Maxima accompanied her husband and mother in law on a visit to the islands which made up the former Dutch Antilles. A year before, the Dutch Antilles had dissolved in a ceremony attend by Maxima and Willem Alexander but the Netherlands maintained a strong relationship with the islands and the Dutch royals were immensely popular. The visit was a joyous one filled with several occasions where the family could let loose. They wore masks at a multicultural festival in Aruba, dance the night away at a party in Curacao, and danced with locals in Sint Maarten and St Eustatius. In amongst the parties they also visited a number of local sights and charitable projects including a women’s shelter, a youth and family foundation in Bonaire, a training and youth education centre named after Beatrix’s sister Margriet, schools for hospitality students and nurses, and a community centre in Saba. The family always feel a certain amount of freedom during their time in the Caribbean, highlighted by the fact Willem Alexander co-piloted their flight to St Eustatius! Although this was Maxima’s third visit to the island group since her marriage, she was just as impressed as she had been during her first trip. When she took a tour through Aruba’s national park it was clear to see why the islands are some of the most desirable tourist spots in the world.
