Exhibition about Princess Máxima and her ten years in the Netherlands

By

On 19 January 2001, Crown Prince William Alexander of the Netherlands asked Argentinian Máxima Zorreguieta to become his bride, and on March 30 of the same year, the engagement was announced to the public. To celebrate the ten years of Máxima’s presence in the Netherlands, the Loo Palace in Apeldoorn will hold an exhibition about the princess from 8 May to 4 September 2011.

The marriage was controversial as Zorreguieta is the daughter of a minister of the murderous Videla regime, and could only go through once it had become clear that her father would stay away from the wedding. At the wedding, Dutch bandeononist Carel Kraayenhof played Adios Nonino, written by tango composer Astor Piazzola in memory of his father.
