Tina, is the first picture you posted current or is it an older one? I was just wondering if he still competed in marathons.

Didn't Maurits also used to run marathons as well?

I don't know, how old this picutre is, but I think, he still runs.

Maurits & Marilène run for example in 1997 the New York marathon and both got "running" in their biography at www.koninklijkhuis.nl

There are sometimes pictures of Maurits running at petersmulders.nl, too.

Thanks Princess Robijn for translating the schedule of the upcoming weekend. Is there any hint of whom Anita has chosen to design her wedding suit or dress? Would she go with one of the designers who have created wedding outfits for the other Dutch princesses? Or will she go with someone new?

Thanks for translating Princess Robijn (& welcome to the Forum :))

I have a few questions too:

What does Anita do for work? (All I have heard is that she is "self employed")

Will she become a princess? (I know that P-C has not asked Parliament for permission to marry & therefore is giving up his right to be in line for the throne - does that mean his bride will NOT be a princess?

Will this wedding be on TV?

Will there be a reception/ball/dance after the wedding?

I could very well be wrong, but I think that after their marriage she will have a courtesy title as the wife of a Prince. Even though he is giving up his right to the throne, Pieter-Christiaan will still be a Prince of Orange-Nassau. So, as a result of her marriage, Annette will be able to use his courtesy title, but will not be a Princess in her own right. The same should apply for Aimee.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but that was the asumption I was under. :)

Prince Pieter-Christiaan to marry

Prince Pieter-Christiaan van Oranje-Nassau, if(flashinstalled == 2){document.write(" ");}else{document.write("[img]../banners/rad15E34.gif[/img]");} van Vollenhoven is to marry Anita van Eijk next week. Like his younger brother Floris, who marries Aimée Söhngen in October, the nephew of Queen Beatrix did not seek parliament's permission to marry. Therefore both Pieter-Christiaan and Floris will cease to be viewed as members of the Royal House and they will lose their positions in the list of people with right of succession. This is a mere formality as the brothers would in any event no longer have any claim to the throne once Crown Prince Willem-Alexander becomes King

Thank you Gabriella. So does this mean that Annette & Marilene are princesses in their own right? If they ever divorced their husbands (God forbid), then they would continue on as princesses?

No, Annette and Marilene are not princesses in their own right. They also just hold curtesy titles as the wives of princes. The same also applies to Laurentien and to Mabel. I believe that Maxima is the only person who was created a princess in her own right. I'm not sure what would happen when the divorce, but I suppose they would be allowed to continue to use the title, but would no longer be members of the royal house?

maybe the same as Alexandra (Denmark), that she has the title as long as she is not married again.

Yes, that makes sense. Thank you Gabriella and Tina for explaining ... for some reason I was just having trouble understanding how these titles, etc work.:o

Marianne, on the Glittering Royal Events Message Board has kindly translated the interview that P-C & Anita gave to De Telegraaf recently.

"They start telling that they have their own, very personal, sense of humour. Just looking into each others eyes and laughing simultaneously...

....it all started in London, where the couple lived in the late 1990's. The Prince (now 33) worked for a 'daughter' of the Dutch Bank ABN/AMRO and Anita was working for press-agency Bloomberg. They met each other during a party at a mutual acquintance's place and started talking.
Pieter-Christiaan: "I just introduced myself as Pieter and she had really no idea who I was..."
Anita: "I really liked him at first sight. He has this nice, positive attitude...combined with a large dose of charm..."
During that party the couple only had eyes for each other and never stopped talking.
Later that night the whole crowd continues their party in a London 'club' and to Anita's big surprise "he turned out to be a very good dancer!!!" (said the bride-to-be proudly...)


Next day PC was totally absorbed by trying to track down this lovely girl and his colleagues were rather amused by his absent way of behaviour...

Since Anita was travelling a lot for her job it really wasn't that easy to make a new date, but finally PC succeeded!
Thety met a lot and eventually he told her he was the son of Princess Margriet and Pieter v. Vollenhoven.
Anita: "well, it's something to take in but not for long actually. In London we were totally private persons and we loved that privacy..."


Prince PC: "In our home country there's more attention (media/public) due to the fact that I belong to the RF and in London I'm much more anonymous.."

These London years formed an important factor of their courtship and their relationship.
The prince really did everything he could to surprise his loved one. Many a time he stood waiting for her at Schiphol Airport (unexpectedly!) whenever she was on her way out (or in...) for her job.
Both of them were working in the same area in "The London City" and he sent her drawings of places they both knew in 'Notting Hill' where they both lived or sent her flowers...both at her office as well as to the places abroad where she stayed for her job.


Anita, who had been living abroad with her parents during her up-bringing (Switzerland/Singapore) really enjoyed these London-years to the fullest.
At her wedding two of her friends from her time at United World College in Singapore will be wittnesses!


After her career at Bloomberg she worked at Christie's and for the American Bank JP Morgan.
After the wedding she wants to make her own career as an independend self-employed woman. Something to do with fashion, but she doesn't really want to reveal any details yet!


The Prince is still occupied with the Marechaussee (Special Force, protecting Ambassadors, RF and also involved with airport control etc).
Besides that he also is involved in a company which he created together with some former fellow-students from IMD in Lausanne, where he graduated too.


The Prince is also well-known for his love of marathons.....and he has run quite some for a good cause too!
The Prince participated in the New York Marathon several times, also soon after 9/11 when he was shown Ground Zero before the race. The money he collected by running at that time all went to the NY Firemen!
Even running around Lake Lamon (Genèva) when he collected $$ for a school in Serajevo. He loves the combination of sports and earning money for a good cause...!
Which is what also got him involved in "Laureus Benelux", an internal organisation which includes names like John McEnroe, Franz Beckenhauer and Dutch cycling champion (Olympic Medallist) Leontien van Moorsel as well.


Anita: "I don't run marathons nor am I a big fan of motor-races and I must admit that I am thrilled everytime PC comes home safe and sound after another race with these fast cars..."

After their return from their honeymoon the couple will settle in a recently bought home in Amsterdam (where PC's elder brothers Maurits and Bernhard are already living with their wives & kids).
If they want to stay in Amsterdam for the rest of their lives is hard to tell..
Anita: "we might also easily opt for another country in the future, where as London is still Favourite Place nr. 1..."


London being the place where they met will certainly have a very special place in their hearts .. no doubt!!" "

In honour of the upcoming wedding, the RF's official website has added some material (in Dutch) on P-C and Anita, including these pictures of them as they were growing up ...
