Argentine-born Dutch Queen faces rough World Cup semifinal

July 8th, 2014

The World Cup semifinal could get tense in the Dutch royal home.

Dutch King Willem-Alexander and his wife, Argentina-born Maxima, might be sitting on opposite sides of the couch on Wednesday when the Netherlands takes on Argentina in Sao Paulo.

The Twitter-verse is at least having fun with the idea.

Take a look at some of the craftier posts:

Publicly, at least, Maxima is a proud fan of her adopted country.

Earlier in the tournament, she joined her husband in Porto Alegre to watch the Netherlands’ 3-2 win over Australia and celebrated with the team in the locker room afterwards.

The Dutch government told The Associated Press on Monday that the couple will not fly to Sao Paulo to watch Wednesday’s match in person.
