Very good and favourable pictures indeed (both of Mabel and Matthijs). Though I have sworn to myself never to buy a 'Linda.', I am afraid I cannot leave this annual spin-off 'Mathijs.' lying in the shop.

As posted by Joris on the Benelux Royals MB:

Quote:
I heard from a friend that princess Mabel van Oranje-Nassau has been appointed "Ambassador of the Nederlands Dans Theater". For the record, has this ever been announced officially? I know both Friso and she like modern dance (like Queen Beatrix and Princess Margriet) very much and that they have a special relationship with the NDT (special performance for their wedding etc.).
It's remarkable that "Dutch Dance's Greatest Girlfriend" ("Beste Vriendin van de Nederlandse Dans" as former dancer Han Ebbelaar once called her) is no patron of any dance company. Well, real love doesnn't have to expressed by any patronage.
And the reply from Jos:

Quote:
Princess Mabel has been involved with the Netherlands Dance Theatre for several years now, especially in promoting the NDT Business Society. This is a network of business companies who give financial support to NDT. The name "Ambassador" is fairly new, and I do not recall it was officially announced.

I think the last 2 pictures are unappropriate, what significance do those poses have together with an interviewer. It is tasteless

Open Society Foundation - London
5th/4th Floor Cambridge House
Director EU Affairs: Ms. Mabel van Oranje

Joris van der W. has posted these on the Benelux Board, here are the links to the pictures:

I think the man bothers me, they look too close and
the pose with her foot against the wall might be nice in a stable with horses but not in a room,

in the third picture her stance is ok but he is leaning in towards her in an affective pose, would you hold your thumb in front of your crotch, it is silly. You would think she would have the final say about which pictures are publicized.

it is just a feeling I have about the pictures

..a lot! The interviewer is, to put it mildly, not my fave to start with, as he's supposedly never met a woman he didn't want to..[censored ] ..and so his look toward her while she's throwing the camera her 'come-hither' eyes..there's something about that last picture that seems really..off base for some reason.
maybe she's hoping to make cold-as-a-cucumber husband Friso jealous?

Well I never noticed that particular look in Matthijs van Nieuwkerk, but then I am not a woman so less sensative about the matter. According to a female friend of mine you both are right about the look though :)

And again, Mabel is in the picture, not so good. The tabloid 'Story' has a story about how Mabel was indeed the partner of Klaas Bruinsma and that she even lived in one of the appartments of Klaas Bruinsma. They also say Mabel used cocaïne and heroïne. He also said Mabel used to work in a sexclub. (It doesn't say what her job was and he said he has never seen her in that club..)

The story comes from Steven Brown, who just wrote a book named 'Killing Fields of Amsterdam.' In that book he also writes about Princess Mabel..

I'm not sure how correct the story is, be I just figured I'dd put it here.

I know this will sound very strange, but I really think that Mabel resembles Queen Margrethe when she was younger. There is just something there. I will have to look around and find some pictures.

But what do you all think? Do you see a bit of a resemblance between Mabel and Margrethe when she was the same age?

Princess Mabel delivers attended at the award ceremony for the prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, Carla Del Ponte, who received 14 June 2007 the Central European University (CEU) Open Society prize from the princess and its founder, Hungarian-American billionaire investor George Soros, in Budapest.

Prince Friso and Princess Mabel to attend AmsterdamDiner

Their Royal Highnesses Prince Friso and Princess Mabel, Count and Countess van Oranje-Nassau van Amsberg will attend the AmsterdamDiner, a fundraising diner to fight HIV/Aids.

This year's AmsterdamDiner will support attempts by -amongst more- the Open Society Institute (of which Princess Mabel is EU executive director) to set up a sort of health insurance system for the poor in Africa.

Steve Brown aka THE former (or maybe still as you never know with these creeps-) King of the dutch drugs scene,who didn't do enough time in jail for all his crimes.He's broke,zwart zaad,so he'll do anything his sort will do to get "pocket money" again.Just making allegations and name-throwing,the looser...There is nothing he can proof,not a single syllable.

She looks very good actually. They attended last years party too, didn't they? And the princess has spoken about the subject too, so it seems to be more then shallow interest, chapeau.
