Well, I surely agree on that one. The Royal Family shouldn't use the royal plane for flying across the globe with no purpose. They'd better go by boat...:p

What are they suppose to use the royal plane for anyways? State visits? Although I don't personally think Princess Maxima or the DRF for the matter is snobby? But that is just IMO.

Appeltjes van Oranje, Annual Oranje Fonds Award (2007-2014)

The Prince of Orange will hand out the "Appeltjes van Oranje" at Noordeinde Palace today.An annual award for projects in the field of social wellbeing and social cohesion,an initiative of the Orange Foundation of which both Máxima and Alexander are Patrons..

As Princess Máxima usually hands out the Appeltjes,it's now the Prince who has the honors;"finally,and I'm looking forward to it" as he said with a grin.

The prize consists of 15.000 euro's as well as an orange appel designed and made by HM The Queen,an established artist/sculptur.

Love the Queen's outfit. The collar especially is extremely flattering on her and the earrings are just to die for. HM continues to be the embodiment of grace, elegance and regnal beauty.

The crownprince is giving the prize (little apples of orange) a whole other meaning here.

Two people who received the prize on behalf of their association (whioch heps school drop-outs) were on television last night. Nice to see that the Orange-fund is supporting such a good cause.

A nice foundation IMO, giving attention (and money) to all these small project. Blauw Bloed had a short interview with a woman from the Antilles who won a prize, she was very happy with her 'apple' as it was designed (and made?) by HM The Queen.

Funny that Maxima started her speech with thanking her mother-in-law for being allowed to use the ballroom of Palace Noordeinde.

Princess Maxima looked nice btw, she might have used some of her time in Argentina to buy some new clothes as she hasn' t been wearing many new stuff from Brussels lately (fortunately).
