Queen Maxima Is A Roller Coaster Of Emotions At The Olympics

Feb 11, 2014

Reason #4,245,230 Queen Maxima rules: She's not afraid to get into the Olympics spirit.

The Dutch royal joined King Willem-Alexander to take in skating competitions at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics on Monday, displaying more raw emotion than most prim and proper queens have in their pinkies. She was gleeful, then pensive, then a little pissed... and then back to joyful. It was oddly mesmerizing.

Just imagine if she had been seated next to Kate Middleton at the London Olympics when the Duchess of Cambridge did the wave (we can't make this stuff up).

Keep on keeping on, Maxima.

Things were looking up...

But she's really just a bundle of joy at heart.
