Willem-Alexander and Maxima: The Netherlands' incoming king and queen celebrate their anniversary

After controversy surrounded their engagement, The Prince of Orange said he would renounce the throne if necessary, so long as he could be with the woman he loved, Maxima Zorreguieta.

The blonde soon won over people who objected to the fact that her father was a former minister in Argentina's military dictatorship, accepting her own merits and impressionable character.

Now, instead of renouncing the throne, Willem-Alexander will have his wife by his side when he takes his place there on April 30, 2013
