Prof. Pieter said that it was the first time he visited the palace since the RF took away most of their possessions. He also commented on the present debate on a new function for the palace: 'I doubt that she [Queen Juliana] would have liked it'.

As i wrote on the blog:

Quote:
Prof. Mr. Pieter van Vollenhoven, bother-in-law of Dutch queen Beatrix, today announced that a faulty altitude meter probably is the cause of the crash of an airplane of Turkish Airways near Schiphol Airport one week ago. Nine people, including the three pilots, were killed when the Boeing 737-800 ploughed into a muddy field last Wednesday. Around 80 people got wounded, 28 of which are still in the hospital.

Pieter van Vollenhoven said that the counsil had decided to release the investigation’s preliminary findings as a ‘warning to Boeing’, to review the use of this altitude meter in combination with an automatic pilot. Further investigation will now focus on the altitude meter and the link with the automatic pilot system and the throttle. It will also look at two previous incidents involving altitude meters.

Van Vollenhoven is the chairman of the National Safety Council, which does research after the causes of the crash. While the plane flew on an altitude of 1950 ft. the meter showed the altitude as -8 ft. This led the engine to as if it was landing and shut down. The Boeing then dropped below the speed necessary to stay in the air. Once the crew realised what had happened, it was too late to recover. Eye-witnesses said the plane appeared to ‘drop like a stone’.

From our blog:

Quote:
Prof. Mr. Pieter van Vollenhoven, brother-in-law of queen Beatrix, attended the memorial service that was organized in a hangar in Schiphol-East for the victims of the plane crash with a plane of Turkish Airways, ten days ago. During this crash nine people lost their lives and 80 people got injured.
Apart from Pieter van Vollenhoven the mayor of Haarlemmermeer, the Dutch ministers of Internal Affairs and Justice , the Turkish ambassador and his wife and 600 victims of the crash and their relatives attended the service. The queen was represented by an advisor.

Again we have the special word "attended", lucien

26-03-2009 Groningen Princess Margriet attended the symposium “75
Year Fighting against Blindness in The Netherlands” of the ANVBB in
Martiniplaza in Groningen. With this meeting, eye care organizations
want to pay attention to unnecessary blindness in The Netherlands.

I believe the princess is very busy behind the screens with her work for the red cross, or so we could see in the interview with her last year. Now the new princesses came into the royal family there are less public events that she needs to go to and HRH can focus more on the thing that is closest to her heart: healthcare/ the red cross. I believe that in that interview the remark was made that one of the princess' children told them that while most older people actually would start doing less, their agenda just gets busier and busier.

Pieter van Vollenhoven,ambassador,will attend the celebration of the International Year of Astronomy
tonight at NEMO science center,Amsterdam.
Pieter had a planetoide circling the planet Mars named after him last week.

One in what will undoubtebly be a row of gifts and programmes for the man who will turn 70 on april 30th.
If one,it is he who absolutely so deserves all the honours and attention for over 4 decades of undivided attention,
and sacrifice,for us all in so many fields.
The UN proclaimed 2009 to be the International Year of Astronomy.
