I see Henri has been visiting the flood damage in Luxembourg (strangely no pics on the main Lux news sites). Not surprisingly Madam did not accompany him.

While Good Queen Til is out and about with her husband in the inundated regions.

That's the difference between class and trash.

Good that Henri made the trip. Of course his wife didn't come with him. And it would have been all about her anyway so this is best.

Máxima also joined her hubby when visiting the Dutch inundated area. Specific the town of Valkenburg, which suffered / suffers as 1 of the most (in NL)

Yes, but it also makes you wonder why MT didn't go with her hubby....or even made a solo visit?

Because it wasn’t about her?  And she can’t bully Max?

I personally don't understand the last part of your reaction. But it could have well been that it wasn't interesting enough for  MT...

My reaction is based on the fact that MT needs to be queen bee in whatever situation she finds herself in. And so far she has been since her MIL died. It was easy for her to bully Steph, a little harder to bully Claire but still possible, and not possible at all for another Queen who is very self confident.  So she passed up a golden photo op.

 I would love to be a fly on the wall if those two ever met in private.

I cannot believe MT is not with her husband, the Grand Duke, visiting their constituents & that she seems to want NOTHING to do with Luxembourg.  It's amazing!!!

Maybe this is one of the conditions out of the Waringo report. Keep off! Luxembourgers want NOTHING to do with you, ma'am.

Maybe MT is offended by the report, and has decided that she will stay away. As in "if people don't  want me around, I won't be around."

Fine so long as she gets no financial support.... Henri not to spend 1 euro of taxpayers money on her .... he can pay for his family himself

That would be nice (and justified), but she’s probably getting support. Maybe as a condition of her staying away.

MT simply doesn't care. I doubt that a report would stop her from attending. It's just that in the midst to people in need, with water around and houses crashed...her Prada dress and Dior bag couldn't be presented in the right light (the journalist might after all choose a photo of a flooded home instead of her in her Prada dress).

So she's staying away.

The report wasn't great for MT but seemed to make it quite clear IMO that the issues were her "going beyond her remit" and taking decisions that should have been Henri's about hiring and firing and how the Cour was run (or indeed more likely deputised to professionals) that weren't hers to make. The official funding of MT's foundation website and personal puff website being prioritised over the Cours' own website were also mentioned as was the fact many of the officially paid for staff were scared of her.

None of that said she shouldn't have a role in Luxembourg, just that it should be appropriate to her position. I think the way MT has handled it shows her true self - like any bully when they are called out on it they deny it then ignore it. Much better would have been taking it on the chin and proving she's the bigger person and relishes the role she  could have by taking the recommendation and moving on in a new way. MT could still carry out official activities and certainly could accompany her husband on a tour of the devastated areas of Lux - she chooses instead to sulk like a child and use her special position to lead a "celebrity, artsy lifestyle" in France instead. Let them eat cake hey!
