Yes.

KRO-Profiel - KRO Profiel: Prinses Irene

HRH is interviewed while at her home here in The Netherlands as well as at her estate "Bergplaas" in South Africa,
where she lives most of the year.She's filmed with her children,who are extremely important to her,and with granddaughter
Julia who gives her such joy,more then she ever experienced before in her life.
She talks about being a Princess and how she could not cope with that for a long time as it ,the title,created such a distance
between her and other people,or as she says herself;"There's a big difference if I answer the phone with "Princess Irene"
or Irene van Lippe.She "uses" the title if that helps to bring her message across to a larger audience.She has learned to cope
and uses the title that is rightfully hers if she so sees fit like fi with family- or official affairs.

courtesy Royalimages.

It was from 20.55 till 21.35,so a rather short documentary on her but very good,I think.

It drew 698000 viewers,way less then the "portraits"of her sisters Beatrix and Margriet,or brother in law Pieter,he also drew over a million viewers,twice,but unfortunately Irene's birthday occurs when halve the nation is on summer holidays,and the other halve is sitting outside somewhere too,temps are high,were high that evening.so,that gives an easy difference.

Uitzendinggemist doesn't have it yet,but I will keep an eye on it.
The program came 6th on the list of most watched programs tuesday night
and also had very nice reviews in the papers yesterday terms of respect and
appreciation towards the Princess.
