The last WW II female Resistance member and Knight of the Military Willems Order,Mrs.Jos Mulder-Gemmeke,passed away aged 88.

Mrs.Mulder-Gemmeke always was very modest on her role in the resistance and it wasn't till 1955 when she became a Knight and it was
only since the last two decades she appeared at official functions.

The only other woman who ever was a Knight Military Willems Order was Queen Wilhelmina who was bestowed
with the Order shortly after she Abdicated,it was the first official act by her daughter as Queen to bestow the Order on her mother in 1948.

As this is the highest Order we have,and also strongly related to the House of Orange and the Monarch,I placed this here.

The speech, with wonderful images of Huis ten Bosch in the snow:

IMHO the speech was somewhat anti-Wilders, albeit in a subtle way. It must be a worry for HM too, to see how a large group of Dutch voters are voting in favor of this man.

Not particularly anti-Wilders,no,but a different tone to a traditional theme used by HM throughout all Her Christmas Mesages.However,Wilders will explain it again as if it was all against him,the poor thing.Yet the message was pointed at all,to Wilders that is all there is as he thinks HE is All.Wonder what his comment will be monday...the usual bla bla no doubt....People do tend to look right through that after a while tho,as will happen with him I'm sure.

Isn´t that sweet, that HM of the Netherlands shows an interest in small animals like birds, is this not touching? And, besides, Her Majesty wears a very elegant `deux-piêces´ with a flattering neckline.
