'So many good things have happened': Willem pays tribute to Maxima on tenth anniversary

Ten years after a vivacious Argentine banker walked down the aisle to  become Princess Maxima, she and her prince are happier than ever.

 "These ten years have flown by, so many good things have happened to us and, of course, we are going to celebrate it," Prince Willem-Alexander, told local television channel RTL.



With the Dutch media reporting that the couple will celebrate in Qatar, Alexander appears to have whisked his wife away for a romantic anniversary holiday.

Maxima would only say: "Of course we will celebrate it together. But we are going to keep the plans to ourselves."

The couple met in 1999 in Spain during the Feria de Abril festival in Seville.

Three daughters followed their lavish wedding on February 2, 2002:  Amalia, nine, Alexia, seven and Ariane, five.
