Princess Máxima of the Netherlands
Although Princess Máxima of the Netherlands often appears self-controlled, disciplined, and even somewhat of an ascetic (as described on the previous page), there is also a pleasure-loving sensualist in her that thoroughly enjoys "the good life". She may sometimes feel torn between saving her hard-earned money and conserving her resources versus indulging herself and appeasing her appetite for pleasure and beauty.
She is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of her greatest assets. Once Máxima Zorreguieta's course is set, she pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway her from her purpose.
Princess Máxima of the Netherlands has a very practical nature; she wants to see concrete, tangible results for her efforts, and she is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition.

Though Princess Máxima of the Netherlands will work long and persistently, she also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and she wants to enjoy what she has worked for.
