Princess Margriet & her husband had another busy day in Ottawa yesterday. Early in the morning they visited Rockcliffe Park Public School (which her sisters Beatrix & Irene had attended during the war). While there, they watched a play hilighting the strong friendship between the Netherlands & Canada. They also met with veterans while at the school.

Then it was on to the new Canadian War Museum for a quick tour, followed by lunch at Rideau Hall with the Governor General. Then off to Major's Hill Park for the opening of the Tulip Festival. Then to Commissioners Park to unveil a plaque dedicating a flower bed in honour of her mother, Queen Juliana.

1. Greeting artist Marianne Feaver, whose mother is Margriet's godmother.

2. Releasing a dove at the opening of the Tulip Festival

3. Visiting Rockcliffe Park Public School.

May 14 2005 Princess Margriet & Pieter Van Vollenhoven visited the Canadian War Memorial in Ottawa today to lay a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

It was a rather gloomy, cold day, which I guess is appropriate for a solemn ceremony.

Here are some of my pictures from the event ...

After another very successful trip to Canada, Princess Margriet is already back into the full swing of royal duties, with two public appearances this weekend alone. I don't know how she does it. Prior to her visit to Canada, she was very busy with VE Day celebrations. And her days in Canada were often long, with engagements from morning until late evening.

But, she was always very gracious and very generous with her time, even giving impromptu interviews to TV reporters.

The official purpose of her visit was to thank veterans who took part in the liberation of the Netherlands. (The unofficial purpose, was of course to give the people of Ottawa another chance to see "their" princess). For the hundreds of veterans that she met, it must have been a very moving experience - one which they will be talking about for the rest of their lives.

... here are a few more pictures from the trip (including the obligatory pose with the Mounties) ...

Thank you so much ~*~Humera~*~ and Squidgy for the screen caps, pictures and scans of Princess Margriet's visit to Canada. I was off in la-la land during her visit so I didn't get a chance much to see the coverage on the news, but I don't feel like I missed a single thing watching the coverage here! :)

Ah ... well, La-la Land is a wonderful place to go to sometimes!:) Glad you enjoyed the pics Alexandria. It is a kind of exciting time right now for us Canadians eh, with all these royal visits this Spring. First Margriet, now the Queen & soon Edward & Sophie. It will seem so quiet once they have all left.:( Then its back to "royalty watching" from afar again. But at least with this forum, no one ever seems too far away! Thank you so much for that.

National Defence [of Canada] has published photos from the wonderful parade in Apeldoorn on May 8th, 2005. I thought I would post some of them, since they are much better quality than the pictures I originally posted made from TV screen caps.

It's sad to think that this will be the last parade ... but the vets are aging ... and its time to move on ... Thanks to the kind people of the Netherlands for treating our veterans so well!

To see these & other photos, go to http://www.forces.gc.ca/site/gallery/index_e.asp and type in Apeldoorn

May 27 2005 Princess Margriet looked very elegant as she opened the Hunebed Museum in Borger. Later in the day, she reopened the Town Hall in Leeuwarden.

These and other pictures from the opening have been posted at: http://users.bart.nl/~jbmeijer/

Princess Margriet was supposed to carry out an engagement in The Hague today, but according to the official site of the Dutch royal family, she has had a fall and broken one of her bones (sorry my knowledge of the Dutch language is not good enough to figure out which bone).

Anyone who has had a bad fracture knows how painful and debilitating it is. (I was clumsy earlier this year and fell down the stairs and had a bad break in my foot. Only now, 4 months later, am I able to start to walk normally again. It's not fun!)

My heartfelt sympathies go out to the Princess. I hope she has a speedy recovery so she can soon be playing with her grandchildren again (including the newest edition to the family, little Felicia).:)

Here is the link to the message: http://www.koninklijkhuis.nl/nieuws/nieuws.html

Maybe our Dutch friends can translate please?

Translation from BRMB:
------------------------------

The statement is as follows in English:
Due to a fall HRH Princess Margriet has a fracture of the sacrum. The process of convalescence will possibly last several weeks. Eventual further statements regarding the programme of public appearances will be made as soon as possible, if necessary.

Yeah, it looks like a really bad bone to break. Looks like you would only want to stand or lie down. Poor her! Thanks The Watcher.
