I was hoping he would wear a cape or something, but I suppose they only do that for more formal occassions. I actually don't recall that I ever saw him with the cape belonging to this order. Are all members of the RF also members of the order or just Beatrix and Willem-Alexander?

HM is Honorary Commander of the Order in The Netherlands,i recall pictures of her installation as a member of the Order.Queen Juliana also was Honorary Commander while Prince Bernhard was a Commander IIRC.I don't think other members of the RF are also members of the Johanniter Order.

Oh yes he is a Knight,Rechtsridder,of the Order.

The order,of protestant denomination,has 600 members and derives from the Knightly Order of the Hospital of St.John,founded almost a thousand years ago.The Order has over 3000 volunteers who work in hospitals and hospices.

The Order helps people that face difficulties in their lives,senior citizens,the sick,the homeless,addicts.They also support care and health institutions.

Since 1957 they organise (5 annually now) holiday weeks for 24 sick and needy,aged 50 - 90,with a one on one volunteer.A new activity are the holiday weekends for youngsters with a handicap,with volunteers in the matching age.All in all wonderfull work.

The Order is governed by the Kapittel,untill his death HRH Prince Bernhard was Commander of the Johanniter Oreder in The Netherlands.

On October 1995 His Royal Highness The Prince of Orange became a member of The Most Illustrious and Most Noble Brotherhood of Our Sweet Lady (the Brothers of the Swan) in 's-Hertogenbosch (Bois-le-Duc), established in 1318. See article. However Catholic, it does accept a limited number of Protestant noblemen inside their Brotherhood.

On June 8th 1996 His Royal Highness The Prince of Orange was created Knight Companion to The Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of Saint John of Jerusalem. The investiture was performed by his grandfather, His Royal Highness Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, Prince of Lippe-Biesterfeld. See article.

Especially the Brotherhood of Our Sweet Lady has a splendid housing in 's-Hertogenbosch (Bois-le-Duc), called Het Zwanenbroedershuis.

In RTL Boulevard I saw him speaking to the Austrian or German press (ijn German anyway), he is very fluent in German. One of the things he said was that more children die from lack of water than from AIDS at the moment.

I walked past the Nieuwe Kerk here in Amsterdam yesterday and there was a lot of police, an ambulance, an AA-limosine, fences etc. So I was wondering what went on.

After checking AT5 teletekst I noticed that the Prince of Orange attended a reception there commemorating one of our national heroes, Michiel de Ruyter (most known for the Battle of Midway where he destroyed much of the English navy). Bestevaer celebrated his 400th birthday yesterday. Outside was a group of protesters who were angry about this ' glorification of our colonial past' .
