Thanks for posting these pictures! It is a rather nice initiative, and I am sure she dropped by her mother-in-law afterwards, to congratulate her on her 68th birthday!

The pregnant Princess travelled to a city near The Hague, Zoetermeer, where a special day care centre for children with a (mental) handicap were awaiting her.
thanks for the explanation, maxima88 :)

Great pictures, purple! Thank you for posting them! Laurentien looks radiant & seems to know her way with children. Also nice to see that she selected handicaped kids, in a way she continues the line of Queen Juliana who was always very much involved with the hadicapped.

BTW The funny thing is that only on sunday that darkish actor (Mounier Valentyn), who is sitting next to Laurentien on some pictures chatted to me ! If only I knew then...

These pictures show once again that Laurentien is a girl who clearly puts 'her money where her mouth is'. This is probably why, at least in the Netherlands I think, her popularity is ever increasing.
