Moving this here from a different board because I'm going to talk about Max, and because I don't want to clutter Max's current year events...
Thank you Masha for the video
Maxima was never this fake, take a look at their engagement interview, totally professional, fluent in a different language, no stupid loving stare like two teenagers, very on point and aware and proud of her new position, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7iwEV2OCiw
I never realized that Maxima actually made a speech in Dutch.
Did she knew Dutch prior to meeting with WAX? Or did she started learning when she started dating WAX?
Anyhow, I really really appreciate the speech in Dutch. It shows that she's taking her job seriously.
I know that different people have different capacity of learning a new language, but going an extra mile like Max (not waiting until AFTER the wedding, etc), is surely appreciated.
Also, she really embraces her adopted country real well. I know that one cannot just shed one's own birth country and heritage, but I honestly appreciate Max for really representing the country she is "leading" (or her husband is, to be correct).
