Yes, and the pictures have been made on one of the two wooden bridges of Het Oude Loo, the hunting lodge of the royal family (now in use as a private weekend retreat for The Queen).

See the link for the picture:

40-th birthday Prince of Orange will be celebrated in great style

According to a poster on another board, the 40th birthday of HRH The Prince of Orange will be celebrated in great style.

- a special television documentary will be made and broadcasted on the eve of his birthday
- there will be an interview with the Prince and his family
- there will be a grand national celebration in the Amsterdam ArenA, like was done on the eve of his wedding (see link for 16 pictures of this wonderful event)

Great pictures! Amalia and Alexia are to adorable!

Lovely that the 40th birthday will be celebrated in style. I wonder why though. HM The Queen never liked festivities herself, especially grand birthday celebrations. And now they are doing one for the Prince of Orange, and in the AMsterdam Arena even! I suspect that the court want to introduce us (the public) even more to him, want to show what he does (and why he deserves our respect) etc. and to prepare us that he will be our next monarch in the not to far future (but that is just me speculating).

Homage to HRH The Prince of Orange

I think that Her Majesty is so immensely proud on all of her sons and all of her daughters-in-law. They all are so gifted and talented human beings.

The Prince of Orange however, will always have a very special place in her heart. Not only is he her firstborn, the first fruit of the love-bond between her and the late Prince Claus... he is also her Heir and the next chain in the more than 600 years of Orange-Nassaus in the Netherlands.

Never has he betrayed his mother's cofidence. He has been an excellent 'Crown Prince' and he has found a wonderful asset to the royal family, maybe not entirely fully to the Queen's wishes (blueblooded etc).

Obviously the Queen finds that her son deserves a grand homage. I already noticed that Her Majesty always places him in the middle of the palace balcony at the annual Prinsjesdag, as if he is the King actually. I think the Queen does that with a purpose and that she honours him.

Long live The Prince !



The picture is made by Chiel Simons and comes from a special page of The Hague: http://foto.denhaag.org/

Couldn't agree more. This is done very subtly, until now, with the plan for this lavish 40-ish b-day. Not sure whether the Dutch could care to celebrate the 40th of this laid-back guy. Not that they don't like Alexander, I think they actually do. He has, in recent past, stepped up and showed he cares what is going on in his society and is not without vision of where it should be going. In addition, he has been more high profile on a global scale than any of the other crown princes it seems to me. And he seems serious about what he does, wheras with some other crown princes, you watch them and suspect they'd rather be sailing or something. So in my view, Alexander is doing something right (I had my doubts in the past as some of you may remember, but he's come around quite well I have to admit that).

But still, a huge party seems a bit, well, coming out of the blue. I think people will wonder: what has he done for the world that he deserves another expensive party in ARENA. I mean, he isn't even King yet. If he was, it would be more appropriate. I don't remember Beatrix celebrating her 40th like that. Anyhow I am not sure I see the necessity of it, but anyhow.
