Queen Máxima is committed to the mental health of young people
Queen Máxima, 50, wants to offer a new point of contact for young people with mental health problems and is therefore officially establishing a new foundation called MIND Us on March 30, 2022. An initiative that cannot be postponed, if you read the numbers. According to the Dutch royal family, “every seventh young person suffers from depressive thoughts and every third person is under pressure to perform.” 75% of mental health problems appear before age 25.
King William Alexander’s wife, 54, wants to free those affected by social stigmatization. She probably recognized from her painful experience how important it is to break the taboo on the subject. Her sister Inés Zorreguieta, † 33, struggled with psychological problems and eventually took her own life in June 2016. In a television interview with journalist Matthijs van Nieuwkerk, 61, Máxima explained in May 2021 that Inés had suffered of depression and a personality disorder and had “been to the hospital a few times” because of it. But she apparently did not receive her professional help that could have saved her. Now her older sister is trying to offer those affected a reliable point of contact, at least in the Netherlands.

King Carlo Gustavo: Special competition on the occasion of his 50th jubilee
Sweden has a lot to celebrate in 2023: On September 15, 2023, 75-year-old King Carl Gustaf celebrates his 50th anniversary from the throne, making him the longest reigning monarch in Swedish history. But first, on 6 June 2023, the 500th anniversary of the coronation of Gustav Vasa will be celebrated. Wasa liberated the Scandinavian country from the rule of the Danish king in 1523 and introduced succession, which is why the day of his coronation was declared a national holiday.

The winner will then be invited to one of the events in the anniversary year.

A few days ago, news about the baby of the Dutch royal family made headlines. Countess Eloise, 19, is expecting a baby, various media reported.

Eloise squashed rumors about the baby with a cheeky TikTok video and a photo of her on her Instagram story of her holding a glass of booze.
