Things have turned out well and they now have three young girls and are terrific ambassadors for their small and happy country. The royal family is known as the House of Orange and Maxima takes any opportunity to wear orange and other bright colors she can. I love how she wears big earrings, statement necklaces, gloves, wonderful bags and hats of all kinds including turbans, giant feathers, flowers and even a butterfly clip if it floats her boat! Maxima always mixes colors beautifully and adds quirky accessories that make her outfits. She obviously loves clothes and it shows.
Full Queen garb. Love her tiara and evening gown.
She’s not just a pretty face either. As if being queen wasn’t enough, she’s the Secretary Generals Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance at the U.N.
She works on micro-loans and such for those who need it most in some of the poorest countries. Wonderful she finds the time to do this with all her other duties as queen. She is also an open supporter of gay rights and was one of the first royals to ever attend an LGBT conference, which she did in 2008.
I think I’ll dig out some of my big earrings and try to have more fun with clothes as she does.
