Baby Girl for Constantijn & Laurentien - Leonore Marie Irene Enrica: June 3, 2006

Daughter for Prince Constantijn and Princess Laurentien.
Her full name is Leonore Marie Irene Enrica, Countess of Orange-Nassau, "Jonkvrouw" of Amsberg.
She's born in The Hague at 17.06.
Her weight is 3030 and she is 48 cm.



De Rijksvoorlichtingsdienst deelt mede:

Hare Koninklijke Hoogheid Prinses Laurentien heeft op 3 juni 2006 om
17.06 in het Bronovo Ziekenhuis te Den Haag het leven geschonken aan een
dochter. De baby woog bij de geboorte 3030 gram en is 48 cm lang.
'Het is een schitterende baby', aldus de dolgelukkige ouders.

Het zesde kleinkind van de Koningin krijgt de roepnaam Leonore. De
volledige naam luidt Leonore Marie Irene Enrica Gravin van Oranje-Nassau,
Jonkvrouw van Amsberg.
Leonore is, na Eloise Sophie Beatrix Laurence Gravin van Oranje-Nassau,
Jonkvrouw van Amsberg en Claus-Casimir Bernhard Marius Max Graaf van
Oranje-Nassau, Jonkheer van Amsberg, het derde kind van Prins Constantijn
en Prinses Laurentien. Prins Constantijn en Prinses Laurentien hebben te kennen gegeven
eventuele giften ter gelegenheid van de geboorte van hun dochter te
willen schenken aan Stichting Kico in Veldhoven ( De Prins
en Prinses hebben voor deze Stichting gekozen, omdat deze zich inzet voor
achtergestelde kinderen tussen de zes en vijftien jaar, die leven in een
sociaal isolement of ouders hebben die niet beschikken over voldoende
financiële middelen. Stichting Kico organiseert voor deze kinderen, die
zaken missen die voor anderen zo gewoon zijn, onder andere speciale
opvangweekenden en vakanties.

No, it's not a hoax. The news is on all the Dutch papers and journals.

'De Telegraaf':
'RTL Nieuws':
'NOS Nieuws':

BTW The news is from the RVD!

Congrats to the family! How nice, a sister for Eloise to play with. Must admit, I'm not particularly fond of the names.

I like the name, it's better and more 'Dutch'-sounding than i.e. Alexia, (Alexia's a beautiful name, but one that in my opinion would be a better fit for an eastern european exotic dancer rather than a Dutch princess--apologies if I offend anyone, don't mean to.)

Too bad also they didn't pick an ultra Dutch name such as Nienke or Sietske for example. Would be nice and traditional..

Leonore is a good pick, but it seems a bit copy-cat-ish because the princes of Asturias's first daughter has the exact same name, bar one letter!
