The journey to Namibia, to highlight the many projects there by the Red Cross, was the reason for Princess Margriet's journey.
Personally I would have preferred seeing a documentary of that journey (and all those meetings with persons involved in various HIV/AIDS projects/campaigns) and then hearing the princess explain and the interviewer asking some questions.
Now mr. Rosenmöller was far too eager to be pictured and ask questions while the Princess already was explaining her case & the efforts made by the Red Cross in this part of Africa.


The Princess also told about her father always travelling to Africa (in her memory it was like every year...) and only when the whole family assembled for the Golden Wedding Get-Together (1997) she had come to love ("fully overwhelmed" !!) this Continent herself.
The Princess explained the different projects in this part of the Continent and was filmed when visiting different parts of Namibia & talking to those who are involved in HIV/AIDS projects.
She always talked English and often a translator had to explain what was said by African women, who talked openly about their role and all the difficulties still to overcome.
The issue still is (and let's face it, it's not only in Africa that there's still a big controversy surrounding poverty/(child)prostitution and HIV/AIDS!!) a remaining factor for many high profile international institutions, like the Red Cross.
The Princess also admitted that the Red Cross had been, relatively, late with its involvement in this issue but she said they had learned from all previous efforts by others and were whole-heartedly involved now.

The Princess indeed became emotional when asked about death in general, and (her parents having died both in 2004) if she gave some thoughts to dying too.
Knowing her husband has been diagnosed with skin-cancer and him having had several treatments lately I consider this a very lousy question in fact, and I can fully understand why the Princess struggled to find some words and was silent for several minutes.

Her involvement with the Red Cross is obvious as she was delighted to meet 'old friends'and 'fellow Red Crossers' (her own expresion during the interview!) and she felt a true bond with those who are doing 'field work' and she made a clear definition between 'Geneva' (Red Cross HQ) and those who see lots of misery in every day life!

* I remember, Oscar, that the Princess was also moved to tears when visiting Kosovo and also when visiting Refugee Camps, some years ago.
So she is not only a trained nurse and a well-known ChairWoman, but still has a big heart and is emotionally involved with the good cause she represents!
Her social involvement was not only inherited from her own mother Juliana, she said during the interview, but also from her paternal grandmother, Armgard.
A belated thanks for posting this Marengo (& of course thanks to Marianne for writing it in the first place on the BRMB).

It's nice to see that Margriet, who has devoted much time & energy to the work of the Red Cross, is able to further promote their missions in Africa through this docmentary. I imagine that it must have been a very difficult trip.

She talks about becoming "overwhelmed" by Africa when the RF travelled there for Juliana & Bernhard's Golden Anniversary in 1997. Does anyone have any group pictures from that event??

I never heard about that. Thanks Marengo. I guess we won't see any pictures?

I wonder if she ever secretly regrets that she was born in Canada. Seems we are always asking her to come visit or to participate in Canada related events in the Netherlands. But she is as gracious as ever, so I guess we will never know.

Joris scanned and posted a picture on the Benelux Royals MB :) http://members3.boardhost.com/Benelu...151728601.html

HRH always seems to enjoy anything Canadian IMO, so I don't think she regrets it one bit, on the contrary I suppose, she is very fond of Canada.

Princess Margriet will attend the opening of the Princess Juliana room at Het Loo Palace tomorrow,july 6th.The room depicts the year 1927,as it was when Juliana turned 18,and has been returned to its original state.It was Juliana's room from early childhood untill she married Prince Bernhard.While her mother was still alive this also was her bedroom/sittingroom when staying with her.Some of the furniture has recently been moved from Soestdijk Palace to Het Loo.Elsewhere I read that her room is next to Queen Wilhelmina's study,now situated on the ground floor,but originally one floor above during Wilhelmina's time.

Good to see Princess Margriet opening this room. And especially to see the Queens favorite flowers there: lathyrus. It would have been nice if more/all daughters attended this though.

I wonder when they will build a statue for Queen Juliana. It is overdue I think, Bernhard already got one or two...
