Also congratulations from me...seems Grandma Beatrix gets more and more busier. So many new grandchildren in such a short time span! And who knows...maybe crown princess Maxima is pegnant again or is becoming that she would give birth to a child in summer. Then Beatrix would already be fivefold grandmother.

Johan Friso comes from a person in the Orange history, in 1687, JOHAN willem FRISO. Friso comes from FRIESLAND :)

Johan-Friso also is a family name. Stadholder Johan-Willem-Friso inherited the positions & titles from King/Stadholder Willem III. Friso comes from the province of Frisia in the north of the Netherlands, the father of JWF & JWF himself were only stadholder of Frisia, and after the death of Willian III of the other dutch provinces as well. Bernhard is his maternal grandfather, David...rumours have it that David comes from a David that the queen was in love with during the early 60-ties, an israelian sheepfarmer who Crownprincess Beatrix met when they were involved in charitywork for the people who suffored from an eartquake in Persia (now Iran). No idea where Christiaan comes from.

I would like to know what the RVD is? Could someone kindly explain this? Is this the official news agency for the Royal House of the Netherlands for announcing official things?

Thanks so much!

Here's an article about the announcement:
What great news! A fourth grandchild for the Queen -- some very busy years for the last few years with the addition of all these daughter-in-laws and grandchildren!

About Mabel being the first of the new princesses from last spring becoming pregnant -- she was also probably the one with the least amount of pressure put upon her by the media, and with the least amount of rumours, gossiping and guessing games of if she was pregnant or not. The first and only time I heard of Mabel being pregnant rumours was at Claus-Casimir's baptism -- which was right, if not official.

I saw this at the Benelux Royals MB, is it an official announcement? From the RVD or from the Queen directly? (See discussion above.)

Her Majesty the Queen is very pleased to be able to announce that Her Royal Highness Princess Mabel is pregnant. The birth of the first child of Princess Mabel and Prince Friso is expected at the end of April 2005.

Another article, in Dutch if you can read it:

It's so nice to hear some wonderful news for these two when their marriage and relationship has endured so much hardship. I'm glad they'll have a little ray of sunshine to look forward to in April of next year! Congrats to the two!

I thought Mabel wasn't a "Her Royal Highness" because they didn't have govt approval for the marriage?

from the website:
Through his marriage he is no longer a member of the Royal House. Under the Membership of the Royal House Act (2002), he no longer bears the title Prince of the Netherlands. He still bears the personal title of Prince of Orange-Nassau, and will continue to be addressed as “Your Royal Highness”. The hereditary title Count of Orange-Nassau has also been bestowed on him.
He has been granted the hereditary title of count, with the family name Orange-Nassau van Amsberg. Although not a princess in her own right, Princess Mabel has taken her husband's titles, and is known as Princess of Orange-Nassau, Mrs Van Amsberg. She is addressed as "Your Royal Highness".
Has somebody recorded the christening of Ingrid Alexandra?It was so nice to see all of them together as a happy family...

also from the official website of the Dutch royal family:
Any children born to Prince Friso and Princess Mabel may use the title of Count or Countess of Orange-Nassau, Jonkheer or Jonkvrouw van Amsberg, and the surname Van Oranje-Nassau van Amsberg. Should they do so, they will be referred to as Count or Countess.

Johan Friso and Mabel, News and Pictures Part 2 (Nov 2004-Sep 2006)

Follow this link for more pictures
The Hague, Holland - Royal Family together at Lucent Dance Theater

The whole Royal family was invited by Prince Johan Friso and pregnant Princess Mabel in the Lucent Dance Theater in The Hague.

The three ballet of Paul Lightfoot, Sol León en Jorma Elo were the counter wedding present of the young royal couple.

They wanted to give it earlier, but because of the death of late Princess Juliana, the dance performance was set till tonight.

All members of the Royal family looked glamarous.
Princess Maxima stole the show in a beautiful wardrobe. Queen Beatrix was very proud to have the complete family together at the performance and blincked several times to her naughty daughter in law Mabel.

The couple had asked to make it a private performance without any press. This is very odd, due to the fact that ''this is one of the rare occassions where the whole family is complete. Mabel and Friso live in Londen as well as Prince Constantijn and Princess Laurentien with baby Eloise and Claus Casimir.
The gossip in the audience was loud, when Maxima entered the theater. Everybody looked at the ''''soon to be mother'''', but this is still not officially said by the RVD office.

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift... That's why it's called present...

Saterday, interview with Princess Mabel, dutch:

TV Ned 1 - za 27 november 22.20 uur

Prinses Mabel aan het werk in Oost-Europa

Eén voor één haalt een Moldavische gevangene pakketjes met nieuwe, schone injectiespuiten uit een houten kast. Vol trots laat ze de schone naalden zien aan H.K.H. Prinses Mabel van Oranje. Deze scène uit een vrouwengevangenis, waar bij hoge uitzondering mocht worden gefilmd, is te zien in de tweede aflevering van ‘Paul Rosenmöller en...’.

In dit exclusieve portret wordt Prinses Mabel gevolgd tijdens een werkreis door Moldavië en Macedonië. Prinses Mabel is al meer dan zeven jaar werkzaam als directeur Europese zaken van het Open Society Institute (OSI) dat wereldwijd steun geeft aan democratiseringsprocessen en activiteiten om mensenrechten te verbeteren. OSI werkt momenteel in meer dan 60 landen.

De reis door Moldavië en Macedonië staat voor het grootste deel in het teken van aidsbestrijding. Openhartig en geëngageerd vertelt Prinses Mabel in deze 45 minuten durende uitzending onder meer over het belang van de strijd tegen aids en de snelle verspreiding van de aidsepidemie in Oost-Europa. Zij laat zien wat het OSI bijdraagt in deze strijd. In dit persoonlijke portret wordt ook uitgebreid gesproken over haar idealen en drijfveren.

Interviews en presentatie: Paul Rosenmöller; research: Saskia de Boer en Henriëtte Smit; camera: Peter van der Linden, Tijn van Neerven; geluid: Geert Poelgeest; productie: Marie-Louise van Agtmael; samenstelling en regie: Hans Hermans; eindredactie: Lioni Schrederhof
