It's not "difference gay" but "difference Day"

I loved the pics of Laurentien playing in the sand. She is so genuine! Great Day!

No doubt, one day closer to their people that another one. I think all RFs should have this kind of special day, dedicated to common citizens, who suffer illness, chronic deseases and helplessness.

All members of de Dutch RF that got involved in such a particular day, gave us a master-class about dedication & charity.
My favourite Lady? No doubt... Queen Beatrix baking apple-pies, wearing an apron as she was wearing a full dress. As always: Chapeau for Queen Beatrix!

Hi Carlotta,

That's my favourite too. It's a chic but comfortable outfit.

I usually find it hard to picture Beatrix in other role than the one of Sovereign...but through this pictures I can also easily imagine her as a granny for the little Oranges (though not a common one of course!!) as well... am I the only one?

I think this shows the Queen in a fantastic new light and I think it'd be a good idea for the Windsors to take a few lessons from the Oranjes.

The royal blog of H. Jacobs has a nice article in dutch about this day. HM. was helped by the autistic Friederike, HM told the girl that she wasn´t very good in baking cakes, the girl replied that it didn´t matter and that she had a book, so they had to look at the pictures carefully. According to another person, Margriet was more gifted in running a household, she gently reprimanded somebody, as the bowl she had to dry wasn´t completely clean.

In the mean time the inhabitant Remco had an even better time, when HM and her sister were cooking, he was allowed to have a seat in the royal limosine.

Oh that is funny! I think that is what gives it a meaning, Beatrix not knowing how to bake but nevertheless trying.
