Crown Princess Maxima of the Netherlands, 7 months pregnant, travelled to New York to meet the new Secretary General of the United Nations as a Goodwill ambassador that she is to the microcredits. She is the first royal to meet the Secretary since his ascension earlier this month. Maxima, mum of two Princesses already, has experience in the field as she was the Vice-President of Latin American Institutional Sales for Deutsche Bank and HSBC in New York for 5 years before meeting the Prince of Orange. Maxima was praised lately in the royal circles because of following a tiresome schedule for a pregnant lady to keep up with her role as Princess of Orange. She will travel the next month to Norway and Turkey. Photos: Gettyimages
