I can see they posed against the gate to the garden. You can see it on this picture, next to the annex (for staff). The house itself is the corner building: https://cdn.binqmedia.nl/Woonwijs/20...48258111/0.jpg

The house and the annex for staff was build in 1926 and was the first ones build with an indoors garage for cars. It is the one with the orange roofs: https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-p5Ii9yusQ...hoenstraat.jpg

The Prince and Princess could have lived anywhere but apparently felt in love with this1920's house in the middle of a busy city neighbourhood. There is a green park opposite their house.

Link to the official website: pictures of prince Constantijn and of princess Laurentien. As is to be expected: the photographer was 'royal house photographer' Jeroen van der Meyde

A lovely photo of Constantijn and his family. The children are growing so much! Eloise is going to be very tall, it seems.

Yesterday an interview was shown with Prince Constantijn shopping in a supermarket, being an daddy-assistant-referee alongside the football pitch, was on tutoyer terms with the interviewer (jij and jouw) instead of the more distant vousvouyer (u and uw).

We saw a modern and comfortable house in the very middle of a neighbourhood, be it a big and monumental one. It was strange to see an Audi from the Court picking up the royals in a totally normal neighbourhood street, with bicycling moms passing by, while an uniformed chauffeur saluted them.

It was mind-boggling to see the Prince in jeans, in a blue Mini, queuing in a supermarket and later, dressed in jacquet, waving to thousands cheering to him during the ceremonial procession at Prinsjesdag, seated in a horse-drawn gala berline. During the whole interview the Prince, sorry, "Constantijn", played down every royal aspect. As if it is just some nuisance so now an then, but comes handy in other situations.

It made me realize that every year 100 million Euro is spent on a royal lifestyle that really no one seems to pursue, after all even the King did perfectly fine just living in a private villa. I am not sure what to think. If the message is: "royals" are just the folks-next-door, then the documentary did hit bull's eye. But it also pops up the question. 400 men and women working in the royal household? For whom????? It must be the most swollen overhead on any organisation in the Netherlands. That is the confusion the documentary caused to me.

Princess Laurentien is fluent in French: she has studied at the Lycée Français in Tokyo, Japan (when her father was the EU Ambassador there). So no any problem to have a conversation in Paris with her French hosts.
