For this royal couple taking sides in this match must be tough.

Princess Maxima was born Maxima Zorreguieta Cerruti in Buenos Aires, Argentina and is of Spanish, French and Italian extraction. She was an investment banker for Deutsche Bank when she met the prince.

The Prince of Orange is an avid sportsman and has taken part in the New York marathon incognito as well as in ice skating marathons.

The tame end to the soccer match could not have ruffled any feathers in the House of Orange.
