Snap-happy Prince Willem-Alexander still devoted to his beautiful señora Maxima

After seven years of marriage and three children, it can be easy to take each other for granted.

Not that this fate is in danger of happening to Willem-Alexander and Maxima of the Netherlands.

When the country's charismatic crown princess graced a dance performance in The Hague, no one was more appreciative of her feminine appearance than her husband.

The fact that Argentine-born Maxima looked radiant in her strapless evening gown and matching jacket was clearly not lost on him.

Ignoring the crowd of well-wishers for a moment, Alexander - as his wife calls him - whipped out a camera to capture his love at the glitzy gala.

He himself had dressed smartly in a tuxedo and bow tie The result was that the pair - who have three lovely young daughters - looked like they were out on date night rather than an official event.

Just before they wed on February 2, 2002, Maxima told the world: "When we're in the church, we have to say, 'This is our day'. I think I won't see anyone there but Alexander".

It's clear that after all these years, at times that sentiment still applies and they pause for a moment just to enjoy each other.
