The mere idea of that really happening (the partying as a bachelor) makes me sick... still, as I read in a previous post, there are no pictures ... mmm ... anyway...

Well, the story about Maurits partying on Friday seems uncredible to me,a s he had to attend a christening on a saturday and has to drive to Apeldoorn and before that he has to prepare his 3 children.

Well, to be honest the Dutch rags aren't that bad, if one compares them to the British or German ones. And at least they give us interesting pictures we don't get to see elsewhere.

That is indeed Princess, an electronics company of Aad Ouborg. Mr. Ouborg seems to like inviting all kinds of Dutch celebreties but why royals attend his parties is a mystery to me. Prince Carlos of Bourbon-Parma sometimes attend these parties too.

Here a few pictures of Princess Marilene with singer Marco Borsato during the presentation of the new ´glossy´ of the Rijksmuseum, called ´Oog´ (Eye). The presentation was on November 23rd.

Well, if someone offered me a free trip to Hong Kong and all I had to do was go to a party, I'd go!

Where is she supposed to be cycling? Here in the US, you are supposed to cycle in the street (although young children are often let to ride on the sidewalk)

She's supposed to cycle on the red path next to the sidewalk, where Maurits is cycling.

There are lots of cycle paths in the Netherlands. I think that it is wonderful! Less risk of being run down!

We are the country of cycling. Bikes are the most stolen item in NL. If you look up fietsen amsterdam (or bike amsterdam) on google imgages, you get an impression how many bikes we have...

The couple was interviewed during this act by Blauw Bloed. I have to say they are very charming, not only in their looks but also in the way they speak, act, etc.

The reporter told the prince that it was a long time ago that she saw them doing an event like this and that some might want to see them more often. The Prince joked that they should repeat the tape of this show :).

During the opening of the 'Kinderstad' Marilene was interviewed by Robert ten Brink, asking why she found this such an important cause to support. After Marilene gave a rather complete remark he turned to Maurits who had nothing more to add and he replied thta after 10 years of marriage they agreed on everything, so Marilene had worded his thoughts perfectly too.

The interview was very funny !!!
I like the couple very much. Some days before WA and Maxima were married I was standing in front of Kraznapolsky to watch the royal guests. A lot of them walked by but when Marilene noticed us she prodded her husband urging him to pay us some attention and the two of them waved at us enthusiastic. It was hard to tell who was cheering who. They seemed to enjoy the whole situation and not to take it all too seriously. Nice people.

Thanks for posting those Lucien, what a lovely family and the children seem pretty too. I believe the pictures were released due to the upcoming 40th birthday of Maurits (and to keep the photographers on a distance in Amsterdam )
