No, it was all very private :)

The magazine Jackie lost its head (IMHO that is):

Quote:
Princess Mabel inspires other Dutch women

Dutch magazine ‘Jackie Business’ has voted Princess Mabel as runner up in it’s Top-25 of ‘The Netherlands most inspiring women’. Neelie Kroes, the Dutch European Commissioner for Competition and former minister, took first place.

Princess Mabel’s second place might come as a surprise to some. The wife of Prince Friso, 40, second son of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, has met with a partly hostile Dutch press from the moment the queen announced the engagement of Mabel and Friso in June 2003.

Princess Mabel visited Cyprus with "The Elders" and had discussions with both Greeg-Cypriot and Turkish-Cypriot young people.

Very nice photos (and very interesting article). It would be nice to see a transcript from their meeting. I am curious about what they discussed.

The situation in Cyprus,rediculously divided between the Greek and Turkish part,and the ways/measures to lift the divide.Nicosia is the only city still divided by a wall between the turkish and greek part,so discussions are welcome to find ways to lift that situation.As youngsters have the future,they had talks with them to hear their view and as The Elders are whom they are,the youngsters from both communities had the idea their opinions do matter and they are taken serious.

Thank you, Lucien. I had no idea that things were still so divided in Cyprus. Mabel had the opportunity to work with such an admirable group of people, and it looks like she was on equal footing with them.

Press Releases - The Elders - www.theElders.org: Visit to Cyprus



It is a pitty,absolutely,such a beautifull island,such an impressive history,and this black page bungling there.
Both communities want to lift the devide,but politics doesn't always follow suite.

There is that ghost town,Famagusta,on the south of the island,once one of the most beautifull of mediterrenean cities,beautifull hotels,marina's,casino's the lot.
After the truce between both communities,the UN declared the city no-mansland.It still is,no-one lives there except creepy crawlies,
all those once beautifull buildings totally derelict after those over 30 years now.I've often sat on the cape at Protaras to look over
Famagusta in the near distance and thought,what a waste.It will take billions of euro's to patch the place up again,if ever.Sad really.

After this official function the prince was interviewed by the item 'De Jakhalzen', which is the light note in the already light infotainment programme 'De Wereld Draait Door', he seemed rather stiff and nervous which made an odd contrast with the rather relaxed ways of the presenter. In the end the presenter asked the prince to make a plea for technical studies and he offered the prince two boxes of mekano, for his daughter. The prince replied that his daughters probably had those aleady.

It is a special mission in view of the political and economical crisis in Zimbabwe and The Elders will have talks with politicians of both sides.

Thanks, Queenece29. Princess Mabel looks great in this dress. Plus I like the way she wears her jewellery.
