On Friday Princess Irene "van Lippe-Biesterfeld" was interviewed by 'Nieuwsuur'. In the tv-programme the princess said it was shameful that The Netherlands does not invest more in sustainability.

And today the 2nd newspaper of the country (Algemeen Dagblad) had an interview with the pricness as the main article on their front page. The princess spoke again about sutainability. She also says that she will not be burried in Delft but that her ashes will be spread in Africa.

About her youth, the princess says that she found it difficult to be set apart from others by the gates around the palace and by the special school that she and her sisters attended.

She also talkes about her legal procedures against Royal Shell, which wants to drill for gas next to her estate in Africa. The court case has been taking 7 years already.

The reasons for the interviews are a book of the princess that will be available in shops next week. The book is called 'Bergplaats', after her estate of 5000 acres in a natural reservein South Africa.

Interesting that H.K.H. prinses Irene der Nederlanden, prinses van Oranje-Nassau, prinses van Lippe-Biesterfeld always refers to herself as Irene van Lippe-Biesterfeld in her publications: https://www.bol.com/nl/s/algemeen/zo...all/index.html

Another regular royal author: H.K.H. prinses Laurentien der Nederlanden, prinses van Oranje-Nassau, mevrouw Van Amsberg née Brinkhorst refers to herself as Laurentien van Oranje in her publications: https://www.bol.com/nl/s/boeken/zoek...all/index.html

On September 23 Princess Irene attended the Dutch Film Festival and the premiere of the film "Down to Earth" by Renta Heinen and Rolf Winters in Utrecht. Heinen and Winters together with their children had lived with an Indian tribe for four years and made a film about it, Princess Iene presented the film with a speech:

I don't know what to think about it. Royals signing books in a bookstore or appearing in talkshows like DWDD, Pauw or RTL Late Night, as just one of the guests. In my personal opinion members of the Royal House better remain bit distant. A lady as Queen Máxima telling kiddies about the value of money, hmmm... unlucky "casting".

Princess Irene is not a member of the Rpyal House. But I agree with the sentiment. I do not need to see prince Constantijn in DWDD for example, sympathetic as he was in the interview.
