Pieter van Vollenhoven's 70th Birthday: April 29, 2009

Tonight is Pieter's birthday bash at the Beatrix theatre in Utrecht with the entire extended Royal Family present,everybody is there,
all of them, to honour and celebrate their most favorite and beloved uncle,brother-in-law,husband and father-(-in-law-).All.Plus 1200 invited guests.

All will see a performance especially written for Pieter,so I suppose it is only partly serious and insanely humerous.

Well done dearest Pieter!!

Among the guests,Prince Laurent and Princess Claire of Belgium who have a special very warm friendship with Pieter.

It looks like a wonderful party! Everyone looks so relaxed and happy. It is great to see Laurent and Claire. I didn't know that they were close with the van Vollenhovens.

Does anyone else think that Princess Annette and Princess Aimee look like they could be sisters?

During the party his sons all went on stage at some point, as did his wife. They made some jokes about Pieter, and princess Margriet remarked that retired husband are a full time job to their wives (so she was happy he was still working). Prince Maurits was on stage with comedian Freek de Jonge (a friend of Pieter).
1200 guests attended the special show at the Beatrix theatre in Utrecht. At the end the sons of pieter van Vollenhoven offered to continue their fathers work for various charities and organisations like slachtoffershulp (victims help).

Who are all these women? I can recognize only Princess Margriet...

The Duke of Parma looks well, while Prince Laurent of Belgium looks so old...
