I am just wondering where little Eloise was. Maxima brought Amalia along, didn't she? Perhaps I am getting the date mixed up..

Its seems to me that Laurentien and Máxima are both the smiling kind. Both of them like colourful clothes too. Someone knows if they are friends?.

Laurentien introduced either Willem to Maxima or Constantijn to Mabel, didn't she? I think that she and one of these ladies were friends prior to both marrying into the Dutch royal family.

Mabel and Laurentien were/are good friends. Johan Frisso met Mabel through Laurentien.

I think Laurentien introduced Friso and Mabel at a party in Brussels.

Thank you, Sean. I knew that Laurentien was responsible for one of the Orange-Nassau boys meeting their future bride, just couldn&#39;t remember which one&#33;

Can someone explain how Laurentien is pronounced? I had never heard that name before the Princess came along.

Lau - like the laou in laoud
ren - like the ren in rent
tien - like the tin in tina

I&#39;m not sure how Laurentien&#39;s pronounced..I thought it was

Lau-REN-tien sounding like LauRENshien but I guess not...how would the Dutch pronounce it? The French way would be Laurentien with a hard "t" sound...

Last Sunday the 9th May it was Mothersday in the Netherlands. Constantijn, Laurentien and their children Elois and Claus-Casimir spent this day with Queen Beatrix on the boat the Groene Draeck. So Beatrix wasn&#39;t alone this day although Friso was on honeymoon and Alexander in Argentina. There are lovely photo&#39;s of Constantijn&#39;s happy family on the boat published in Story and Prive. The photo&#39;s are taken by Remi van Maren and I think they also will be published on Smuldersfotos.com. It was also a goodbey to Beatrix because Laurentien and Constantijn are moving out Huis den Bosch to Brussels where their children can live a relatively normal live out of the spotlights. It has been told that they moved to Brussels because of the safety of the family, but I didn&#39;t think that this is the reason. From Brussels it is easier to help with offical tasks now that they became the second royal couple (because Friso isn&#39;t a member of the Royal House after his marriage with Mabel). It is also been told that Friso and Mabel will move in Constantijn&#39;s house in London.

nol bra&#33;&#33; I just do not understand how she could do it and why didn&#39;t anybody say something to her before they left.

it&#39;s not as if she is so entirely not " burgerlijk" and imagine her dancing in the evening. in comparison to all the other princesses and Laetizia, who was stunning she looked like a joke

This must have been embarrassing for the Queen unless there&#39;s some medical problem that keeps her from doing so. I really don&#39;t know.

I was thinking that maybe because Laurentien is likely still nursing that it might&#39;ve been uncomfortable to wear a bra? And no offence to bra makers, but bras made for nursing women aren&#39;t exactly accomodating with evening wear. But I&#39;m not sure if that is really the reason why she didn&#39;t wear a bra. More my own musings.

Uhhh...I just thought that the top was just exceedingly "saggy". I dunno...I didn&#39;t like her outfit. She&#39;s beautiful and her tiara was really nice but her outfit...gah&#33; What was with that dress? At first I thought it was a winter jacket that was cut up and sewn into a dress...and that top...gah&#33; I&#39;m sorry but that "saggy" look was not attractive. However, I didn&#39;t consider the "not wearing bra" scenario.

Poor Eloise. She gets left home alone. By the way, Does Princess Margriet act as regent when the Queen and W.A., Constantijn are out of the country?

No, when Beatrix goes to, for example, Spain, she is still The Queen. Also on holiday.
