Margriet & Pieter in Ottawa, Canada

They are on a 6-day tour which will include visits to Ottawa and Calgary.

Today they charmed both young and old, visiting vets at the Royal Canadian Legion in Ottawa, and later, meeting with youth at the Canadian War Museum.

It's so nice to have the couple back in Canada!

The Ottawa Citizen has some nice photos and a video.

Margriet presents tulips to Canadian Governor General

That's a nice sentiment, Barber.

The Governor General of Canada, MichaŽlle Jean, basically said the same thing today when Margriet presented her with a bouquet of tulips named the MichaŽlle Jean tulip. The Governor General said: "Princess Margriet, Professor van Vollenhoven, no matter where you go in Canada, you are at home, and you will always be welcomed with joy, warmth and hospitality." MichaŽlle Jean's full speech, (including her condolences to the Dutch people after the sad plane crash in Libya today) can be found on her website.

There's also a good video of the event here.

Iceflower, thanks for your pictures! I was looking for some from that event but couldn't find them! So they're nice to see.

You're most welcome

The event together with Michaelle Jean turned out to be another
great photo occasion, seeing them together laughing is so nice,
here are some additions:


Canada's Governor General Michaelle Jean and Princess Margriet share
a laugh after the Princess presented Jean with the Michaelle Jean tulip
during a ceremony at Rideau Hall in Ottawa May 12, 2010.
Later Margriet and Pieter visited Perley Veterans Health Centre (4&5).

Day 6 - the final day


Princess Margriet and husband Pieter took part in the "Go Green
Go Dutch Go Bike!" ride in Calgary, May 16. The aim of the event
was to promote the use of bikes for recreational purposes, but
also as a daily mode of transportation to and from the workplace.

Princess Margriet looks very good IMO. And she made a point of dressing well for this occassion: gloves, hat, and even a hat pin.

She received 15.000 euros that will be donated to the Henry Dunant, a ship of the red cross.
