As far as this baby and smoking situation. If Laurentien and Constantijn had such a problem with smoking in front of their child, they would have removed the baby from the situation. Obviously, this is not the first time that the royals have smoked in front of children. I think that they probably have a very liberal attitude towards smoking, unfortunately. Second hand smoke is just as damaging as smoking itself. It says a lot about the two royal couples to not respect the health of an infant.


Some of us will never agree about the Marilene and nursing photo, and that's okay. We are all entitled to our opinions. However, I bet Marilene does not open her blouse outside of her home again.

well said paloma...should laurentien and constanjin had a prob they should have told maxima not to smoke next to their babay. if they let her it was ok for them, so it should, it has to be ok for us. she was not putting the smoke in eloise's mouth after all!

as for marilene, although she was in a private garden, she ought to know how much paparazzi like her and her family. i think they are the most photographed of the dutch royals, as i think they are, were?, the most accessible. so she should have thought about it twice befor strting breastfeeding her baby in an outdoor place. she's a princess, a VERY photographed princess, and that means she has positive but also negative things she'll have to face. so in a way it's her fault cause she knows the situation with the paparazzi. i like mauritis and marilene and their jolly little family, but they are public ppl, so breastfeeding outdoors does not seem a good idea if u dont want to end up on the front page of prive....

I don't understand the riff-raff by the public. A woman is breastfeeding...okay, what's wrong with that? Obviously she's caring for her child and feeding the baby. Maybe some people see it as inappropriate because it might have sexual overtones because of nudity, but breastfeeding is a natural thing. Here in the US, you cannot be told not to breastfeed if you are in a public place. It's considered to be a woman's right to be able to feed her child in a public place. The tabloids are just looking for a way to make money and sell their publications. I find it disgusting that they can turn a nurturing act like breastfeeding seem like something inappropriate and distasteful.

Well, as far as I know there isn't much riff-raff about it here in Holland. At the moment there is a little public debate going on about breastfeeding in public (I don't think that has anything to do with this picture of Marilene, it's just a coincidence, I guess) and I heard them talking about 'breastfeeding in public, possible or not?' on the radio just yesterday. They were taking a little poll on the internet and as a matter of fact almost 85% of the people who participated in that poll didn't have any trouble with women breastfeeding in public.

I think it's just a shame that people should take pictures of a woman doing that (and I don't care if it's Marilene, Britney Spears or anyone else who leads a relatively public life) and sell them to a magazine such as Privé. That's beyond good taste, imo.

New family photos of Prince Maurits, Princess Marilene, Anna(4), Lucas(3) and Felicia(6mo.).

A perfect, adorable family. I just love Anna and little Felicia is also growing cuter by the day. My favorite photo would have to be the one with Lucas kissing his baby sister...:Heart:

Thanks for posting these lovely images, this is one of my favourite young families of the moment actually. Lucas seems to be enjoying his role of older brother already :)

the ones with maurits & marilene similar with the one they had for their engagement.
i think this photo session is a part of their agreement with press (similar to WA & Maxima's) ?

What a great photo shoot. They really are a lovely family with the most adorable children. I can't believe that Felicia is already 6 months old.

Maurits and Marilene make the covers of 2 boulevard magazines this week: 'Prive' and 'Weekend'. Last week the couple made the cover of Weekend as well.
According to 'Weekend' Marilene is quitting her job to stay with her children. Prive talks about a new challenge for Maurits and Marilene. Prive (or mr Santegoeds) seems to continue their vendetta with the Prince of Orange and his wife and made an article about how many maroccans are working on the estate of the crownprince (none).

no anouncement yet. i recall the cousin baptisms arent usually anounced until shortly before.

of course M and M's kids have had both protestant and catholic baptisms so maybe felicia has already been baptized in the catholic church.
