Dutch Princesses At Theater, Charity Projects and Book Launch
Princesses Máxima and Laurentien of The Netherlands had several public engagements during the last two days. On Tuesday night, princess Máxima visited the new Culturalis Theater in the Schilderswijk in The Hague.
The Culturalis is an amateur theater for young people. The princess arrived at the theater on the Hobbema street at 8PM and left two hours later. She opened the theater by hitting on an Indonesian gong. For the occassion the princess wore a pink dress from Natan that she recently also wore during her visit to New York.
Yesterday princess Máxima visited two projects of the Orange Fund. She visited the foundation Ster and the foundation Two Get There. Both of them are active to help vulnerable children in The Netherlands. Ster organises holidays for insecure children from 8 to 13. Two Get There stimulatues language development of children. Both foundations are supported by the Orange Fund, of which princess Máxima is the patron.
While Máxima visited these projects, princess Laurentien was in Rotterdam to launch her childrens book ‘Mr Finney en de wereld op zijn kop‘ (Mr. Finney and the world upside down). The book has been illustrated by Sieb Posthuma and together they presented the book to the press. The princess was accompanied by her husband, prince Constantijn. Princess Irene of The Netherlands, sister of queen Beatrix, also attended the presentation.
