Thanks Marengo. It is nice to see Annette performing public duties. Since she is so far removed from the throne in the line of succession, she rarely has public engagements.

Where was she & what was she doing?

(I love the picture where she appears to be mirroring the bust that she is standing beside):)

Great to see Annette! :) She's such a pleasant looking woman, always so happy and cheerful. She always makes me think that she's the kind of person you'd want as a best friend!

What is the special reason that has brought Annette out for an official duty? And why wasn't Prince Bernhard Jr. with her?

She unveiled a statue at Utrecht Cenral Station (the biggest station in the country). The dutch royal website says the following:

Prinses Annette start 1 november 2005 actie MS Research op Centraal Station Utrecht

Hare Hoogheid Prinses Annette van Oranje-Nassau, van Vollenhoven-Sekrève onthult dinsdag 1 november op Centraal Station Utrecht een beeld en een groot beeldscherm.


Daarmee start zij een actie van de Stichting MS Research. Het beeld wijst de reiziger op het beeldscherm erboven, waar hij of zij een sms naar toe kan sturen. De meerprijs van elk sms'je gaat naar de Stichting MS Research en wordt besteed aan onderzoek naar Multiple Sclerose. Daarmee is de stationshal een ontmoetingspunt voor s(ms).

Het beeld, l'Incontra (Ontmoeting), is door de Limburgse beeldhouwer Wim Steins speciaal gemaakt voor de Stichting MS Research. Het laat twee mensen zien: een vrouw die uit een zolderraam hangt en boven haar - als op de richel van een dak - een man die mensen naar zich toe roept en naar boven wijst. Wie zijn vinger volgt, ziet het beeldscherm waar sms'jes naar gezonden kunnen worden.

Sms'en kan door MS (spatie) (bericht) in te toetsen en dat te verzenden naar nummer 2020. Het bericht is dan korte tijd zichtbaar op het beeldscherm. De meerprijs per sms komt ten goede aan het onderzoek ter voorkoming en genezing van Multiple Sclerose.

Multiple Sclerose (MS) is een ziekte van het centrale zenuwstelsel: de hersenen en het ruggenmerg. Het centrale zenuwstelsel kan bepaalde signalen niet goed verwerken, doordat de isolatielaag rond de zenuwbanen is aangetast. Een aantal lichaamsfuncties kan hierdoor niet meer of niet meer optimaal werken. De symptomen van MS zijn divers en vaak erg vaag. Slecht zien, spraakproblemen, evenwichts- en coördinatiestoornisssen, geheugenstoornissen en vermoeidheid zijn enkele van de veel voorkomende klachten. De ziekte begint meestal bij mensen tussen de 20 en 45 jaar, maar openbaart zich soms ook op kinderleeftijd. In Nederland hebben ongeveer 16.000 mensen MS.

De Stichting MS Research stimuleert en financiert onderzoek naar multiple sclerose. Haar doelstelling is het opsporen van de oorzaken van MS en het ontwikkelen van effectieve behandelwijzen. Ook informeert de Stichting over wetenschappelijke, medische en maatschappelijke aspecten van MS.

-- --------

so the statue was the start for a national campaign for Multiple Scleroses. Apparently on the statue is a number to wich you can send an sms text message and the money from that message will go to this fund.

I have no idea why Annette did this, maybe the others were to busy considering President Putin and their normal jobs? But very nice to see her anyway, she is one of my favourite princesses. I assume Bernhard was working...

I agree, Annette did look lovely today. It's always great to see her. She does seem like such a warm and open person.

I think only once before she did something like this, planting the first trees fo a forest in Brabant with Marilene and Laurentien. I believe it was over two years ago.
