I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking that! But I think Irene was and still is much better looking than Camilla, despite being 8 years older.

Yes, that's true.
About the resemblance on some way I thought that Irene has something similar to late Frances Shand Kydd...

On Monday 27 September Princess Irene started an initiative to adopt a bee colony. The initiative enables people to adopt a bee colony (wuith some other people), in exchange they will get honey.

Since a few years,but she reacts to both.She only used the v L-B title/name to avoid distraction/attraction by others for the
Orange Nassau name in relation to her own work,she felt the title would be an obstacle.She very much had the wish to be seen
as Irene and not as the HRH to get the work done she envisioned,the Nature College ao.Now she has arrived at a station in life
that that doesn't matter to her anymore,she is acknowledged for what she has done for herself,Irene,not because of the title.

Princess Irene gave an interview to GDP Newspapers. The interview was about her battle against Shell, the company wants to drill for gas in a reservate in South Africa. The princess finds it unbelievable. She denies having Shell shares herself and says that she doubts if her family has them.

In Dutch:

Irene strijdt tegen gaswinning in natuurgebied Zuid-Afrika - Achtergronden ROYALBLOG.NL

A gutsy Lady fighting the worlds richest multi-national,I applaud her for protesting against drilling for oil at her land in SA where it is already known that the oil in the rocks there won't produce enough to make a profit for SHELL,or Royal Dutch as I prefer...

Thanks Lucien ,
Do you think a Queen's sister may give her opinion as her own family since years and years are involved in Royal Dutch and therefore is one of the more rich RF ?

I think the rumours that the RF has a large % of shares in Shell are incorrect, as was shown by prof. Fasseur in his Wilhelmina biographies. But even if they still have shares I suppose it is only normal that the shareholder will say something about the policy of a company.
