Her Majesty Queen Mxima holds a paintroller in the Dorpshuis (Parish Hall) in Tricht.

NL Doet! (NL does!) is the national volunteer day organized by the Orange Fund. The King and Queen are patron and patroness of this Fund which was a wedding gift to them.

This year 7.579 works are done by around 325.000 volunteers.

A handful of works:
- renovation of the materials storage PSV Baseball Eindhoven
- cutting willows alongside the river Jeker near Maastricht
- building new stables for the Horseriding for Disabled Club in Amsterdam
- planting thousands of tulip bulbs in the Mariahoeve neighbourhood, The Hague
- building a new website for a Clubhouse for the Deaf and Hearing Impaired, Groningen
- super cleaning day for the Philippus Lansbergen Space Observatory in Middelburg
- polishing the silver and copper in the Lutheran Church, Arnhem
- building a new pier for the Ypsilon Rowing Club in Leeuwarden
- hanging new wallpaper in the living room of an elderly couple, Sittard

Etc. Etc. Etc.




The one day she glitters and glams, all bedecked in awesome Orange-Nassau diamonds, entering the magnifique banqueting hall in Fredensborg Palace, Copenhagen. The other day she wears a t-shirt and takes a paintroller, so that the youth in the village of Tricht have a fresh and clean sports venue again...

Oh, I love today's pics!

Mxima looks like the woman from next door, with jeans, t-shirt, so normal and active, great!

And think about the villagers (knowing about nothing): suddenly they are painting or working vis--vis with His Majesty The King and Her Majesty Queen Mxima... I think this is the secret of the Dutch monarchy: being awesomely stately and splendorous when needed, being utterly approachable and totally natural also, when needed.



Hoch lebe das Knigspaar!

Two days grandeur at the Palais de l'lyse, the Htel de Matignon, the Mairie de Paris and the Petit Palais, and now volunteering in a playground. What a contrast. Wow.

Mais qu’a donc vu la reine Maxima des Pays-Bas ?

Some of these pictures are funny. The King is really getting into it, and he looks the part, too.

It's great the way the Royal family take part and muck in with things. Can't imagine the Windsors doing anything like this.
