According to royalblog.nl the event was also attended by the duke of Anhalt and his wife ánd by the Fürst and Fürstin of Sayn-Witgenstein-Sayn (former parents in-law of Corinna SWS). The duke seems to have had some nice words about HM.

The fürst and fürstin must be friends of the royal family, they also attended the wedding of the prince of Orange (with their eldest daughter, who was then married to the hereditairy prince of Oettingen).

As per usual, events featuring more than one member of the RF should be posted in a joint thread as opposed to individual threads. A new thread for Remembrance Day 2012 has been created:

Is it a toy or a baby? I am sure she is very drawn to the horrendous situation in London.

You can see it's a toy in this picture (look at its leg) - a very cute one though.

BelgaPicture - Category details
HM attended the Gala on occasion of the 125th anniversary of the Salvation Army in The Netherlands.The Queen has a close bond with the organisation ever since she went out one night in Amsterdam with one of its workers to see what it was like and what sorts of people she'd meet.

A Salvation Army Major,Mrs.Bosshardt,took her out and about in dark Amsterdam,more in particular the Red Light district.The then still Princess,it was the early 1960's,had a wig and huge dark glasses in order not to be recognised.

Some photographer did get an idea of whom was roaming the bars pubs and edifices of the District with the Salvation official and made a picture.

Since that day Princess Beatrix and Majoor Bosshardt became lifelong and very close friends until "Majoor " Bosshardt as the nation knew her,died a few years ago.Always dressed in her uniform,always a modest and also direct figur,she embodied the Salvation Army and what it stood for with a touch of humor.She became a national figure,everybody knew her.Her funeral was aired live on national tv,and the Grand Mistress of the Court was in attendance on behalve of HM.

Annecdotes of the "Majoor" are numerous and often hilarious,she had us all in stitchess more often then not.Always dressed in the uniform,always,had the Mayor of Amsterdam,who spoke during the funeral service saying;"She never worried about what to wear"...and had the congregation in stitches..Be it in the homeless shelters where she hosed down junks and what not while spreading the Word,literally,she gave 'm a scrub down herself so they were spic and span again,or visiting HM at the Palace the next hour,it didn't matter to her,it was all the same and what better gear to wear then the uniform..

More from the Gala at the Wester gasfabriek last night:

Glad to read that Quen Beatrix is coming to Windsor for lunch but was surprised to read that it was actually a topic of discussion in the Dutch parliament.

Well, if it did. The fact didn't even manage to get into the media.

Much ado about nothing. ;-)
