A picture: Koninklijke gasten op privébezoek (Portretfoto's) - Het Koninklijk Huis Nice that the court released this one, quite unexpected.

Frederik and Mette-Marit are not pictured, so I guess they didn't attend. It seems that HGD Stephanie had cold hands.

Aparently Frederik is at some sport event and Mette Marit is at home..it's known she hates flying if she has a choice.....grin..

Maybe the pic and it being announced here is an indication of a different handling by T future M's...

Lovely photo. Too bad it isn't bigger or at least "closer" to the subject matter :)

Also, too bad that Frederik and Mette Marit didn't attend. It's very nice to see Felipe and Letizia there ... the northern Europeans princes(esses) seem to be closer to each other.

Yes, I noticed Stephanie had let down the arms of her coat to cover her hands. So typical of Stephanie to do the natural thing, protect her hands from the cold. It's a lovely pink coat. I do this letting down of the coat's arms when I am in the sun and driving and have no gloves, to protect hands from the sun. Very nice picture of the heirs.

I did download the photo to get a closer look. Letizia and Mary look great. It's a bit surprising how much taller/bigger is Maxima than Mary and Letizia who both seem to be dwarfed next to her. That's not a criticism - Maxima and Mary are two of my favorites!

However, I do have to question Stephanie outfit. It look wrinkled and poorly sized. I guess she's still learning her way.

suztav, agree both about Felipe and Letizia and Fred and Mette Marit. I think she should have made an effort.

In any case, nice to see all these together

Since we don"t know why they did not attend we do not know that she didn"t make an effort. Don"t judge people without facts.

Frederik participates tomorrow at Vasaloppet, which is an annual long distance (90 km) cross-country ski race (ski marathon) held in northwestern Dalarna, Sweden between the village of Sälen and town of Mora. The ski race starts tomorrow morning at eight o'clock.

Thanks for the picture. Is this a yearly event that the couple host? & what is the purpose of it? Also, how many days and where do WA & Maxima host the Crown Princes?

I wonder if they took their children with them, like Estelle, Leonor, Sofia...

But I was positively surprised to see such picture and event, I always loved to see royals together, and I'm sad that Frederik and Mette-Marit didn't attend, but I'm sure they will have more oportunities in the future.

I wonder why Prince Charles didn't attend, maybe he couldn't? or... wasn't invited?

According to the spanish press, the gathering continues on Sunday, but Felipe and Letizia returned to Madrid today because of the king's surgery tomorrow.

I forgot to mention, but can this indicate that that Crown Princely Couples will attend the Investure Ceremony? I think right now, it seems likeable.

I found the picture in a closer, larger format on The Royal Correspondent.
http://theroyalcorrespondent.files.w.../apeldoorn.jpg

I think it is lovely that they were able to arrange this. Wouldn't it be fun to be a "fly on the wall" and just hear what they have to say...what matters to them? At any rate, I certainly pray all the best for Willem-Alexander and Maxima and for all the other Crown Couples as well. They certainly look like a fun group.
