Speech by the Prince of Orange, 21 August 2006
at the opening of the World Water Week ‘Beyond the River’, Stockholm

Excellencies, laureats, dear waterfriends,
Twelve years ago my father pointed me in the direction of water management. In his eyes, it was the most perfect preparation for my future task in life. Large parts of the Netherlands are below sea level, and so we have always had a special relationship with water. That, of course, was a factor. But there was more to it. To my father, water was the key to social, economic and ecological sustainability all over the world. So in his eyes, those who understand water understand life. Or, as W.H. Auden once put it so poetically: Thousands have lived without love, not one without water...........................

And another picture from the awarding of the Stockholm Junior Water Prize yesterday. And here we see how the Crown Princess likes to recycle outfits on multiple occasions that are sometimes very close to each other - as this looks like the outfit she wore at Solliden on her birthday on 14 July... She should at least stretch the time that passes before she recycles, not that it's a major issue to care about, but it would be nice if she could do that.

IMO she should try out other hair styles. It wouldn't hurt. Also, I think she tends to wear lots of brown and earth tones...maybe she should wear lighter colors. Not bright, just lighter, maybe that will give her a fresher and younger look? But I don't have a problem with any of her clothes, I like them.

Purple_platinum, I think we both had the same idea, so I deleted my previous message.
Thank you very much for posting all those beautiful pictures.
IMO the Crown Princess looked absolutely stunning tonight.

I looked twice, I did not recognize Crown Princess Victoria in the above photograph she looks like a model!

What a change from the usual ponytail! She looks great.

Wow! She looks really beautiful in this picture!
I like the way she styled her hair!
That dress looks stunning! It looks a bit like this green dress Princess Mary of Denmark wore several times.
