I would like to take the opportunity to congratulate You both,as well as my Godchild,Princess Victoria,with her
engagement and I wish her a very happy future.

What goes for our families,also goes for our countries.We are no strangers to eachother.Quite contrary.Swedes
and Dutch meet one another in many gremia,think the same on many issues and work in good and pleasant cooperation in many fields."

To be honest...it's a bit of a long speech really,at least for now,if you don't mind...
Thanks for your work Lucien,
Now the Speech is aviable in English

After a lecture , a Belgian Colonel said that King Baudouin was wearing the day of his wedding the Charles III Order of Spain. He confirmed that never Baudouin or Albert II were the collar of the first Order of Belgium :the Leopold's Order.

I agree. It was fortunate that the visit coincided with the park in full bloom.

it's great to see maxima accompaining queen silvia during the visit. i think she (maxima) looked great again, i loved the headpiece, although it seems to be a little misplaced, hence why it didn't look as nice as it would have. it would have shown in all its splendour with a hair updo.
