  1. What a class act HM is!!! She was born after WWII in a different continent yet she found compassion in her heart to pay respect to her country's heroes. Very much unlike the giggling Mary!!! Bravo Your Majesty Queen Maxima!!!

    1. Please watch it again. I am not referring to the one where she honored Australia solders but the Danish ones. She was full of laughter!!! What a "happy occasion" laughing at the Danish solders who lost their lives defending their homeland. Mary was one happy camper at the ceremony honoring Danish heroes. Bad news for Mary with the birth of the Cambridge baby girl Mary's chances of become a Queen of Australia just diminished more. I wish she would show some even a smallest bit of respect to her adopted country who provides her with all the Prada she could get. But this post is not about her, it is about the ever gracious, beautiful, intelligent, compassionate Her Majesty Queen Maxima. The world does not revolved around that other narcissist I am excluding the Prada as the world. That one Mary definitely rules.... Enough said!!!

    2. I just realized you are the one that keeps saying the same thing over and overagain about Mary. I am at the "yawn" state already. I am beginning to believe that this Anonymous writer is a robot because it clearly didn't realize that this is the Maxima thread and not Mary. This robot needs to move on.

    3. Anonymous Mary-hater, 4.18 have previously spread her venom in another thread about CP Mary attending a ceremony honoring the fallen soldiers when Denmark was seized by Nazi-germany - and alas - all her posts (all very nasty and unreasonable) were removed by the admin.
      Which is probably why she posts here - hoping she can get away with flashing her burning hatred here.

  4. Hey - anonymous Mary-hater!

    What nationality are you? And whatever reason do you have to hate CP mary with that burning hate?
    I can't imagine you're Danish.

    Mary wasn't 'giggling' - at the ceremony for Danish heroes. She was talking to someone and smiling.

    The Danes lost their lives many years ago - you don't have to wear the appearance of an undertaker. You can still smile and talk.

    Your burning hate must be due to envy. For some resason you envy Mary - or if you are not Danish - you envy Denmark having this beautiful Queen-to-be.

    Stop harrassing her!!!!!!!!


    And btw - this post is about Queen Maxima and King W-A!
    I respect them a lot as heads of their state
    but if you ask me - I think they overdo their grief a little bit here.
    Like I said - it is many years ago.

    1. Yeah, Anonymous 4:18 has some issues.

    2. I don't think you realize the purpose of this event in Amsterdam. It is not just for the victims of the second world war, but also for any soldier that died in the line of duty, during a peace keeping missing or otherwise. So please be a bit more respectful to our queen as you expect this from other people on this site.

    5. I noticed that too. Maxima is definitely reining in her usual exuberant self. She's so naturally pleasant, it was most likely a huge effort to keep that stern face on. Poor thing probably wants to avoid getting bashed if someone takes an incidental photo of her smiling or even -- god forbid -- "giggling!" '-)

  5. Anonymous 4.18 certainly has issues. If you hate royals why watch this blog? If you know so much of royals and their 'tax payer paid' lifestyle, you will also know this is not true. As for Mary potentially being Queen of Australia one day...this is just another indication of your over subscription of ignorance.

    The person(s) who manage this blog do a marvelous job and I hope they continue.

  6. Oh, I know perfectly well Mary would never become queen of Australia ( a bit of sarcasm ). But does she??? It is a shame that she might bring the oldest monarchy down with her behavior or lack thereof, I should say. The recent pictures of her daughter's birthday the poor kid is photographed with a nanny not her mum? Is that normal?

    As far as the Admin. if you keep on deleting less than flattering comments about Mary but everyone else is a fair game. You will lose all your followers. Mary should be the queen of Prada, not sarcastic. Read any comments under Mary posts Prada, Prada, Prada.

    1. Everyone would be completely happy, if admin. just keeps deleting you!
      You are just sick and completely obsessed with your burning hate and envy.
      This is a post about the king and queen of the Netherlands - you obviously haven't noticed.
      Get help before your burning hate makes you sick

    2. Uh oh...the repeat robot is back. One would think that after repeating the same three topics over and over again they would get bored with themselves. I for one am, I can't even finish this sente...Anonymous 11:54 is still boring AND clueless.

      Delete
    3. Apologies, I meant to refer to Anonymous 2:10, see, I started to fall asleep because I was so bored with Anonymouns 2:10 reply and referenced the wrong reply. Anonymous 11:54 is on right on the money.

    4. The best way to deal with over subscription of ignorance is to ignore them - after this post I will not reply to this person and encourage others to do the same. It is very clear they have a very physiologically disturbing hate of CP Mary - are they a Dane who dislikes that your next Queen is from Australia?!? Only hate/ignorance can blind one to the fact that she is very good for the Danish Monarchy and that ALL the Queens and Princesses favour a designer. Will you call Maximia the Queen of Nathan, Leticia the Queen of Hugo Boss, Princess Charlene the Queen of Arkis etc etc...take yourself away from where you are clearly not wanted.
