Maxima and her mini-mes! Queen joins King Willem-Alexander and their trio of  blonde daughters for the Dutch royal family’s annual summer

It was a case of like mother like daughters today as the Dutch royal family gathered for their annual summer photo.

Queen Maxima and King Willem-Alexander were joined by their trio of young daughters, Princesses Amalia, 13, Alexia, 12, and Ariane, 10, all of whom bear more than a passing resemblance to their glamorous mother – though Princess Alexia appears to have inherited her father’s red hair.

The royals arrived at the riverside spot in Warmond by boat to pose for their annual snap, and Maxima wore an appropriately nautical top for the occasion.

The 46-year-old Queen teamed her stripy top with ankle-grazing trousers and navy ballet pumps.

She wore her blonde hair down and completed her outfit with oversized white drop earrings and sunglasses.

She and King Willem-Alexander looked proud as punch to pose with their daughters to be with their daughters for the day and treated them to a boat ride in Warmond

Queen Maxima’s three daughters looked strikingly similar with their long loosely-curled hair.

Eldest daughter Princess Amalia wore a long blue top with embellished detailing on the front and white skinny jeans.

The two younger siblings, Princess Alexia and Princess Ariane also kept their outfits relaxed and matched in their white blouses.

King Willem-Alexander stood up as he steered the family’s boat towards the waiting photographers who had gathered to see them.

Queen Maxima helped with the rope as they arrived and prepared to pose together.

The sun held out for their boating trip and they were able to all sit on the grass with the beautiful backdrop behind them.



Queen Máxima of the Netherlands. … Queen Máxima of the Netherlands (born Máxima Zorreguieta Cerruti; 17 May 1971) is the wife of King Willem-Alexander. On 30 April 2013, she became the first Dutch queen consort since Princess Emma of Waldeck and Pyrmont, the second wife of King William III in 1890

Máxima Zorreguieta Cerruti was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on 17 May 1971. Queen Máxima is the daughter of Jorge Zorreguieta (born 1928), Secretary of Agriculture under General Jorge Rafael Videla during Argentina’s last civil-military dictatorship (1976-1983), and his second wife, María del Carmen Cerruti Carricart (born 1944). She has two brothers, a sister, and three half-sisters by her father’s first wife, Marta López Gil.

She is named after her paternal great-grandmother Máxima Bonorino González (1874–1965). Her father is a scion of the Zorreguieta family who had been landed gentry, professionals, regional politicians, and statesmen for generations. Her maternal great-grandfather was also from the landed gentry; Domingo Carricart Etchart (1885-1953) was a landowner, politician, Director of the Banco Provincial de Buenos Aires, first mayor of González Chaves, and mayor of Tres Arroyos.

She grew up in the Recoleta neighbourhood of Buenos Aires city, and studied at Northlands School, a bilingual school of the city of Olivos. She graduated with a degree in Economics from the Pontifical Catholic University of Argentina (UCA) in 1995. This private university is governed by a directory of local bishops, including the current Pope Francis, then Archbishop of Buenos Aires and Grand Chancellor of UCA. During her student years, Francis presided over the traditional Mass at the beginning of classes. She later completed her studies with a Master’s degree in the United States.

From 1989 to 1990, while still in college, she worked for Mercado Abierto Electrónico S.A. From 1992 to 1995, she worked in the sales department of Boston Securities SA in Buenos Aires, where she conducted research on software for financial markets. From July 1996 to February 1998, the current queen Máxima worked for HSBC James Capel Inc. in New York City, where she became vice president of institutional sales for Latin America. From then until July 1999, she was vice president of the emerging markets division of Dresdner Kleinwort Benson in New York. From May 2000 to March 2001 she worked in the Deutsche Bank in Brussels.


She also worked as an English language teacher to children and adults, and of mathematics for high school students and freshmen.

Máxima met Willem-Alexander in April 1999 in Seville, Spain, during the Seville Spring Fair. In an interview, they stated that he introduced himself only as “Alexander”, so that she did not know he was a prince. She thought he was joking when he later told her that he was not only a prince, but the Prince of Orange and heir apparent to the Dutch throne. They agreed to meet again two weeks later in New York, where Máxima was working for Dresdner Kleinwort Benson. Their relationship apparently began in New York, but she did not meet his parents, Queen Beatrix and Prince Claus, for some time.

The news of the couple’s relationship and eventual marriage plans caused controversy in the Netherlands, due to the involvement of Máxima’s father Jorge Zorreguieta as a cabinet minister during the National Reorganization Process, the most recent Argentinian dictatorship. Her father’s tenure as a minister took place during the beginning stages of the Dirty War, a period of repression that saw 10,000–30,000 people killed or disappeared during the seven-year military regime. At the request of the States General, Michiel Baud, a Dutch professor in Latin American studies, carried out an inquiry into the involvement of Zorreguieta in the Dirty War (roughly, 1974–83).

Zorreguieta claimed that, as a civilian, he was unaware of the Dirty War while he was a cabinet minister. Baud determined that Máxima’s father had not been directly involved in any of the numerous atrocities that took place during that period. However, Baud also concluded that Zorreguieta was almost certainly aware of them; in Baud’s view, it was highly unlikely that a cabinet minister would not have known about them. Even so, his possible presence at the royal wedding was debated for several months.



The couple announced their engagement on 30 March 2001; Máxima addressed the nation in Dutch (which at the time she only spoke to basic conversational extent) during the live televised broadcast.

Máxima was granted Dutch citizenship by Royal Decree on 17 May 2001 and now has dual citizenship: Argentine and Dutch.

The engagement was formally approved by the States General later that year—a necessary step for Willem-Alexander to remain heir to the throne.

Máxima and Willem-Alexander were married on 2 February 2002 in a civil ceremony in the Beurs van Berlage, Amsterdam, which was then followed by a religious ceremony at Amsterdam’s Nieuwe Kerk (“New Church”).

She remained a Roman Catholic after her marriage

She is the first Dutch queen consort to have been born outside Europe although, through her father, she is a descendant of King Afonso III of Portugal and other noble families of the Iberian Peninsula who moved to the Argentine viceroyalty during the early nineteenth century.

Máxima’s parents were not present at the wedding; her father was told he could not attend due to his role as a cabinet minister during the National Reorganization Process, and her mother chose not to attend without her husband.

The couple has three daughters:


Máxima is also godmother of:

By a decree issued on 25 January 2002, upon the solemnization of marriage, Máxima Zorreguieta was granted the titles Princess of the Netherlands and Princess of Orange-Nassau, and the style Royal Highness was formally conferred upon her. She also became “mevrouw van Amsberg (Mrs. van Amsberg)”.

Another decree issued on the same day also granted her own personal coat of arms and a personal standard

On 13 May 2011, the Dutch parliament confirmed that Máxima would become queen consort of the Netherlands upon her husband’s accession, after a debate over her future title and style.

On 28 January 2013, it was announced that Queen Beatrix would abdicate on 30 April in favour of Willem-Alexander.[33] Máxima is the Kingdom’s first queen consort since Princess Emma of Waldeck and Pyrmont, the second wife of William III. She is the first Dutch queen consort to have been born as a commoner, and the first to have been born outside Europe.

After more than 20 years of love …

Leo Messi and Antonella Roccuzzo have been married this Friday in the city of Rosario, where they met when they were children. The couple has been given the ‘Yes, I want’ to more than 260 guests among which were several colleagues with their respective women.

On honeymoon on the beaches of Antigua and Barbuda, after marrying Antonella Roccuzzo, the player learned everything through his father, who called him to warn him. “I think Leo, in fact, does not even know her. What will you know! If she lived in the countryside, “explained Jorge, from the outset, to the Argentine milieu. He added: “He is dying with laughter, he is on vacation. He does not give him a ball. “

The one who was affected by the statements of Susana was Celia Maria Cuccitini, the mother of the striker. “I feel very sorry because I went to see him before he went to Barcelona (Leo) and the mother did not open the door,” was one of the things said the controversial aunt. On that, Jorge affirmed that he “bittered” everything he heard and the same thing happened to his “lady, who has nothing to do”. “He was crying,” he said.

Tras más de 20 años de amor…

Leo Messi y Antonella Roccuzzo se han casado este viernes en la ciudad de Rosario, donde se conocieron cuando eran unos niños. La pareja se ha dado el ‘Sí, quiero’ ante más de 260 invitados entre los que se encontraban varios compañeros de profesión con sus respectivas mujeres.

De luna de miel en las playas de Antigua y Barbuda, después de contraer matrimonio con Antonella Roccuzzo, el jugador se enteró de todo a través de su padre, quien lo llamó para avisarle. “Creo que Leo, en realidad, ni la conoce. ¡Qué la va a conocer! Si ella vivía en el campo”, explicó Jorge, de entrada, al medio argentino. Y agregó: “Él se muere de risa, está de vacaciones. No le da ni bola”.

Quien sí se sintió afectada por las declaraciones de Susana fue Celia María Cuccitini, la madre del delantero. “Me da mucha pena porque yo fui a verlo antes de que se fuera a Barcelona (Leo) y la madre no me abrió la puerta”, fue una de las cosas que dijo la polémica tía. Sobre eso, Jorge afirmó que a él le “amargó” todo lo que escuchó y lo mismo le pasó a su “señora, que no tiene nada que ver”. “Estuvo llorando”, afirmó.



               Nicky Jam in concert At Paris ( France) 10 october 2015 .

Nick Rivera Caminero (born March 17, 1980),known by his stage name Nicky Jam, is a singer and songwriter. He is best known for the hit “El Perdón“.

Nicky Jam was born in Boston, Massachusetts to a Puerto Rican father and a Dominican mother, however he later moved with his family to Barrio Obrero in Puerto Rico when he was six years old. He has been in reggaeton since his youth. The name “Nicky Jam” was jokingly given to Caminero by a homeless man. Caminero’s family was low-income and as a minor he performed illegal work in a grocery store in order to help support them, in his free time improvising in front of his workplace. One day a music executive noticed his talent and signed him, and at the age of eleven he recorded his first album “Distinto a los Demas”. The album was not successful, but it did gain him recognition in the music industry, and warranted the attention of some music producers such as DJ Joe, DJ Playero and DJ Chiklin.

Yankee and Nicky Jam: Los CangrisAfter his first album, he continued working in the music industry creating many hits. Thanks to those hits, Nicky Jam had the opportunity to meet Daddy Yankee. They met when they were recording with Guatauba and DJ Playero. Daddy Yankee offered Nicky Jam to work with him and thanks to this opportunity a strong friendship began. During the late ’90s and early 2000s, they became close friends and formed the unofficial Daddy Yankee and Nicky Jam duo, also known as, Los Cangris. They created many well known hit singles such as “Sabanas Blancas”, “Guayando”, “Sentirte” and many others. They also worked together on the album “Los Super Amigos” in 2000 which was never released. Due to personal issues, they ended their friendship in 2004 and stopped working together. Nicky Jam continued working as a solo artist and created many hits as well as Daddy Yankee.

Nicky Jam: solo career

Nicky Jam rose to fame after the release of Haciendo Escante in 2001. However he didn’t gain international recognition until 2004 with the release of Vida Escante. He and Daddy Yankee separated due to many arguments and conflicts between the two thus resulting in a rivalry. This rivalry led both artists to “tiraera”. Due to Daddy Yankee‘s popularity at the time, many saw Nicky Jam as the “bad guy” in the whole rivalry and became very disliked. His most recent studio album is The Black Carpet released in 2007. Throughout his career, Nicky Jam, has worked with many artists like Daddy Yankee, R.K.M & Ken-Y, Héctor & Tito (Hector el Father and Tito El Bambino), Lito & Polaco, Big Boy, Magnate & Valentino and many others. However by the late 2000s, his career suffered a decline. He decided to move to Medellin, Colombia in 2010 after performing a few concerts there. In Colombia, Nicky Jam found the attention from the fans he needed and had the opportunity to restart his career. Thanks to the Colombian audience, he made a powerful comeback with his successful singles: “Tu Primera Vez”, “Piensas en Mi”, “Curiosidad”, “Juegos Prohibidos” and, most notably, “Voy A Beber”. He also worked with Daddy Yankee again, after 8 years of not working together, on the album Prestige by Daddy Yankee. Nicky Jam has appeared in many reggaeton albums, currently holding the record for most appearances on various artist albums, which was formerly held by Daddy Yankee. His most recent album appearance is with Daddy Yankee‘s album Prestige, with the track “El Party Me Llama”.
