Nobody shines as beautifully as her.
Maxima (if) happiness. With this, native Argentine Willem Alexander (54) won the heart. Greetings to this woman and this love for fifty!
Hardly anyone knows how it all really started and how Maxima became the queen of humor: when she told her parents that Willem Alexander was being serious, they were shocked. “A life in a golden cage? This is not yours, you are very independent and freedom-loving!”
But the Maxima was not deterred. If she gets something in her head, she’ll pull it out. Friends and family say she is the driving force behind it all, and a true bundle of energy – and she’s basically number one on the dance floor!
But no tango (even if it was played at their fairytale wedding in 2002). Flamenco! When Maxima worked for Deutsche Bank in New York, she took lessons. So in 1999 she went with her boyfriend to Flamenco Mecca, Seville, for the famous Feria Spring Festival.
The friend said, “By the way, you will meet two princes there. One is handsome and the other is rich.” One of them was the Crown Prince of Denmark, Frederick (52), and the other came from Holland …
Five minutes later, Willem Alexander and Maxima fell out with each other. At the request of the hostess, she was supposed to take some photos of the celebration as well as the Willem-Alexander movie. He reacted furiously. I left it on the left.
I apologise. None of her Argentinian friends ever did! W: The Dutchman made her laugh. Especially when dancing: “A man’s hip is made of wood!” She called her friend. He was in New York next week, so can he get her number? Maxima surrendered …
Willem Alexander flew to it three times a month! They’ve ridden skateboarders around the Big Apple. The prince was committed. Little pieces of paper with letters here, little gifts there. And finally one (1.83 m) was taller than it (1.78 m).
The rest is history. Since then they’ve been laughing in a duet!
