The Dutch are unbelievably proud of their Princess Máxima. Yesterday the 41-year-old Princess took part in the Amsterdam City Swim, that thus far raised more than 630.000 Euro for a good cause: the illness ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). Máxima and lots of other prominent and less known people swam 2028 metres through the dirty canals of Amsterdam. They are just safe enough, but swimmers were told they could better get a vaccination beforehand. A proud Prince of Orange and his daughters Amalia, Alexia and Ariane waited for her at the finish. It took the princess 50 minutes to reach it.
