Mabel looks good. But, WOW!!!, did you see the one pic of her sister. I suppose Mabel forgot to tell her that the top of that dress was toooooooo sheer to not wear under garmets!!!! Not at all attractive.

Good grief! She is certainly living up to her reputation.

Cool

Oh Yikes! If that were my sister I would have told her to leave the dress at home and wear something else, but that's me. I'll bet that dress had the men's tongues hanging out.

Good god. That is an unmitigated disaster. And I think Mabel looks good, except that I wish her dress were just a tiny bit longer. Other than that... She seems to have put on a tiny bit of weight, I wonder if we will have news soon.

why, what's wrong with her reputation?
Gosh, what is it with these sisters?! One has a, ahum, checkered love past what with heavy duty affairs with the highest-up drug czar of the eighties in Europe, then a controversial one with a married politician of Bosnia, who's now doing time in a US prison, my gosh, how do you pick them?! And this sister Nicoline, of all the party dresses in the world, what is she trying to pull, a Britney Spears/Paris Hilton?

But Mabel and Nicoline and Eveline Wisse Smit are, all three, quite well to do girls coming from a top-bankers' family.

Mabel is not really the prototype of a mobster with her summa cum laude studies in economics and political sciences, with her careerpath via Royal Dutch Shell, via Foreign Affairs, via the United Nations and the ABN AMRO-bank. And the founding of War Child Netherlands and being an activist director of the Open Society Institute does not really fit in the image of a 'moster-lover' some media tried to portray her.

Sister Eveline Wisse Smit is a professional field hockey player, playing for Amsterdam and the Netherlands national team.

Nicoline Wisse Smit is an author and has her own communications bureau.

So none of them are dumb gold seekers or whatever. It are strong, independent, self-conscious and succesful ladies earning their own life and following their own very individual path in life. A strange choice of a dress does not change this. None of them have anything of a Britney or Paris.

it is a bit like gwynith paltrow no bra look at the oscars, imo only the very young can affored to go braless.

Mabel looks very proud and her sister unselfconscience so maybe they could not see in the mirror very well before leaving home.

Henri, I agree Mabel has been instrumental in making the most of her own life, but please, working for a multi-national and having various university degrees doesn't necessarily keep someone from leading a less than examplary private life, now does it? Because the fact is, Mabel did, by most accounts except for her own, sleep with Bruinsma, despite knowing he was a first class mobster. Great morals, natch.

You mean to say Mabel is a <smart> gold digger? Sorry but that is according to many, exactly what she is.

At least sis Nicoline has <nothing> on the business skills of independently wealthy, may I say, self concious, ladies like Britney or Paris, who are wealthy in their own right, mind you!

I love royal engagements like this. First it sounds a little bit boring for people, who don't interest in things like this, and then you get photos like :

I like that he is always so serious, when he has such engagements. He seems to be very interest and as far I know he had study somthing like space technoloy. Hadn't he?

Yes, the Prince succesfully completed two total different studies: Aeronatical Engineering and Economic Sciences. After these two studies he added a third one: post-graduate Executive of Business Administration at the Institut Européen d'Administration (INSEAD) in Fontainebleau, France.

Well, that means that there will be at least one Princess in the Benelux that won´t be wearing Natan of Eddy Vermeulen. Thumbs up for that alone. I wish the Princess would always wear her hair likes this, more covering her forehead. She looks 10 times better this way than when she has it pulled backwards like at WA´s 40th birthday party.

Today Princess Mabel has given the starting signal of the new Stop Aids Now! campaign in the RAI in Amsterdam.
The Princess started the campaign by spraying graffiti the letters ''I Stop Aids Now'', a reference to the slogan ''I Amsterdam''.
