In less than ten days, H.R.H. Princess Maxima of the Netherlands, will turn 40 years old; moreover, next year — February 2, 2012 —  the vivacious princess will celebrate ten years as a princess.

So, in honor of her upcoming ten-year mark as well as her birthday an exhibit opened at the stunning Het Loo Palace this afternoon highlighting Princess Maxima’s life.  According to PPE the exhibit, “… highlights the position of the Princess in the Royal family, her various social functions and her fashion style.”  Attendees included Her Majesty Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands along with — you guessed it — Princess Maxima.  H.R.H. Prince Willem-Alexander of Orange was not present.  He’s in Greenland at the invitation of the World Wildlife Fund.

Finally, several weeks ago I reported about the upcoming documentary entitled, Máxima: Portrait of a Princess, that will air on May 16, 2011, and I just wanted to remind my awesome readers from the Netherlands to not miss this program.  It sounds as if it will be an interesting one.

So, yeah, watch it if you can.   🙂
