I love seeing pictures of Princess Margriet w/her "other home's" Veterans. She just shines and enjoys meeting them as much as they enjoy meeting her.

Sadly, at the rate our WWII Veterans are leaving us, these pictures very well could be the last ones of HRH w/Canadian Veterans of the Holland Liberation.

Princess Margriet has opened the exhibition ''Wilhelmina's Levensavond'' (Wilhelmina's evening of life) at the Palace Het Loo in Apeldoorn today, November 27, 2012. The exhibition shows the period of Queen Wilhelmina after her abdication, her paintings, clothes and other personal possessions.

Queen Wilhelmina had died on November 28, 1962, so I think the opening date of the exhibition was intentionally chosen.

Yes. She looks great. I read this forum every day but don't post much (everything already seems to be said!). I found an interesting birthday post about Princess Margriet's hats that others here might be interested in.

Pieter van Vollenhoven had to stand in for his wife today as she has the flue.
He visited the Burger's Zoo in Arnhem on occasion of its 100th anniversary.

Newspaper 'Telegraaf' has a big article today about tax avoidance of princess Margriet and her husband.

Prinses Margriet ontwijkt belasting - Binnenland | Het laatste nieuws uit Nederland leest u op Telegraaf.nl [binnenland]

The couple started the foundation 'Royale' in December 2006 to evade succession tax after their death (which is 20% for a child and 36% for a grandchild). The construction by the ABN AMRO bank is legal, but it still doesn't leave a good impression.

Margriet en Pieter omzeilen belasting - Binnenland - VK

Note that I did not read the complete article (which is only in the printed edition), so I don't know what evidence they have to support their claims.

If what they are doing is good accounting and is legal, then many many MANY (probably all) wealthy people in Holland and most other countries would do exactly the same.....

I would do whatever I could to protect my wealth. Who would not do so?

Cant understand why people see this and are "shocked". No one gives money to the tax man with a huge smile - NO ONE DOES!!! We all try legally to avoid tax, and to claim as much as is legal and to arrange our affairs to keep as much as we can for when we do die our family can inherit it.

Sure and while the rich avoid paying taxes over their fortunes, they leave it to the middle class to actually pay. This procedure may be legal but IMHO it is unethical, esp. for a member of the royal house. It clearly is a loophole in the laws, but it is certainly not the intention of the state that millionaires can evade paying taxes. That they find legal ways to evade it doesn't make it right.
