Thanks for the update, Lucien!

It's good to 'see' her again, and mind you folks, she looks really great, her outfit/dress is particularly classy for once!

I'm sorry, but that outfit is just awful! She looks like she was attacked by a granny with mad knitting needles!

Nice to see her 'on duty' again though.

Well, Laurentien wasn't to horribly dressed this time. Nice to see her doing other things then just those involved with illiteracy and reading.

I notice that Rita Verdonk was there to, I wonder what the two have to say to each other (Verdonk is the immigration minister). And I believe that Clemence Ross-van Dorp is on one of these pictures to (secretary of state, sports and welness).

Influenced by Africa.
They will not wear Dior or Gaultier in Mali, which is understandably.
Princess Mabel however looks like wearing Pucci couture. Trés expensive! But it matches very will with the colourful outfits of the African ladies.

Well, when I look at Laurentien I see the african elements very clearly and it fits to the event.
.. but when I look at Mabel's colourful top I just have to think of Flower-Power and 60's Hippies... her dress doesn't look very african.

Princess Mabel and Princess Laurentien do like it.
