If you see all the pics & comments posted,what do you think?

They obviously are not exactly sticking to their own mommy and daddies,they all know eachother very well and don't have any problems to sit at uncle Maurits's lap to name one.It all are far from strangers to eachother.And as Laurentien and Constantijn live in Brussels,and Alex and Máxima in Wassenaar,they meet over weekends or holidays or any other occasion like in any other family.

Quite easy to go there, it's about 2 hours by car (unless you're stuck in traffic of course).

Well, that's not too much. I think they visit each other in holidays as Lucien wrote (and actually I thought Laurentien and Constantijn lived in one of the palaces) because they are too bussy those days.

I have some questions

- Why don't the members of the royal family live in palaces as the princes of orange and the queen?

-What do Laurentien and Constantijn do? (I mean, where do they work? I know that Mabel and Friso live in UK and work there, but I ignore what they do)

-What about the other members of the royal family (f.e. Floris, Aimee...)

Thanks!!

It's all on the Royal House website,except maybe for Floris and Aimée,he works for ABN-AMRO Bank,she had a job
with a posh car-dealer but I'm not sure she entirely took that up again after she had Magali.

The Dutch Royal House

The Dutch Royal House

The Dutch Royal House

Who,besides HM and Alexander & Máxima would even want to live in a Palace?It are enormous piles of bricks coming with
huge sums for maintainance and heating.It is only fairy-tale princes & princesses whom always live in Palaces,the real ones
know better then to face the enormous costs.The 3 Palaces at the disposal of HM are maintaned by the State,and all her
sons have an apartment at HM residence of Huis ten Bosch Palace at their disposal if they're around ( Friso and Constantijn that is).

But this is Benjamin's christening thread,not the Palaces and where lives whom.And i and others,already have explained this several times,pls. look it up in the respective threads or the Royal House website.
Thank you.

About Alexia's dress: maybe she wanted to wear it herself and didn't stop nagging until she was allowed to... children that age can be very persistant .

I don't think this link was posted here before; lots of pictures of the baptism can be found at the website of Reni van Maren, look here.

When I saw lovely little Alexia wearing that dirndl, I could well remember how persistent and immaginative children can be! What a lovely close family they all are.
