This is also not a traditional christmas card with tinsel and snow and trees, but it radiates the end-of-year-holiday-spirit of being together with family and loved ones

The Kunstweek (Art Week) Foundation claims that Princess Beatrix is amongst the 100 most important art collectioneurs of the Netherlands whom acquired "a broad collection of paintings and artworks".

It varies from glassware to photography, sculptures, illustrated books and manuscripts, blue porcelain and silver birds, African ethnographic, contemporary Chinese art, modernist design and applied art. Also seventeenth-century Roman and European glass and Dutch still-lifes from 1650 to the present as well as paintings, drawings, watercolors and prints.

Lovely card from Beatrix and it's wonderful to see all the grandchildren have been included too.
Claus-Casimir does look very outnumbered amongst all those girls, though!

The former queen still goes horseback riding, even these days. She used to practice horse jumping as well -in her teenage years- though I believe her sister Irene was better at it. I believe it was a hobby they shared with their father and with their paternal grandmother Princess Armgard.

Armgard loved horses and her 'house friend' Col. Pantchoulidzew tought the princesses how to ride. Q. Juliana was notably absent during these visits to Diepenheim Castle in the 50-ties, which according to Bernhard ruined the family life [his affairs apparently did not]. The ''committee of three wise men" who needed to solve the family crisis as Soestdijk duly listed as one of their recommendations that Juliana needed to join her family again for these horseback riding outings, which she did.

Nice to see the queen with her goddaughter, they have been attending this event together for several years. According to the royal website all three A-princesses like horseback riding too.

Does Queen Máxima ride too ? As the daughter of an Argentinian landowner, I would assume horseback riding would be a common hobby in her family.

We know that the King, his family, and his mother Princess Beatrix do ride regularly but they are seldom seen. When they remain on the Crown Domain or their othrr estates it will be hard to see them.
