Of course there are interactions and visits we never know about or only hear about later.
But this discussion is about the heirs of 7 different countries who according to Lucien meet privately "several times a year".
And no mentioning of it since more than 10 years, neither by themselves nor by the media!! How very discrete

I have no idea how often these HRH guys meet, but ... I'm certain that there are ways of bypassing the paparazzis and others prying eyes at the airports. They get the full VIP treatment, with officials at the gate and cars waiting on the tarmac, next to the aircraft. They're whisked away without many seeing them!
For the sake of argument lets say I'm on board a flight to Amsterdam and get a glimpse of -say- the Danish crown princely couple in the front rows. All I can deduce that the HRHs may be going to Amsterdam, and that they may be visiting Dutch royals. There is no way I can start speculating on a secret CP summit ! Yet I'm certain that they can get together without the general public finding out!

and in this day and age you don't think people would be twittering and putting out pics from their cell phones of royals on their planes and limos on the tarmack?

Rather a long drive to get from Madrid or even Amsterdam to Oslo should Haakon and MM host the next gathering but perhaps the continental royals live a lower profile life when not undertaking official engagements while some of us are just so used now to the general public, not just the paps, tracking every move of our own royal family. It seems they cannot stop at a gas station or pick up a cup of coffee without some member of the public tweeting about it.

I have no doubt that the European Heirs are in good contact and meet from time to time in private, however, with this meeting I get the feeling it has something to do with WAX becoming Kings since it ended up on the royal houses' official events site which would never have happened if it was only one of the likely royal social gatherings.

NGalitzine - I'm sure that some of them do - 'starstruck', bad mannered types spring to mind! I'm afraid I don't take kindly to people who have little or no respect for the privacy of royalty. If they're 'performing' - fine, take all the pictures you want, but what's the point of having a 'shot' of prince NN disembarking a plane or queueing up for the toilet? Even royalty go to the toilet - so what?
I was once in the same pew as Queen Margrethe at a service in a church in Copenhagen. She was there as a 'private' person - as private as can be, and taking pictures what the last thing on my mind. Besides, I'm sure that her very discreet protection officers had intervened if I - or anyone else - had tried to!

According to these articles, Willem Alexander, Maxima and obviously also their daughters are on a vacation in south-eastern Spain, in Aguamarga, with crown princess Victoria, prince Daniel and princess Estelle. Victoria and Daniel are staying at the big villa at an area of Tío Kiko, owned by a swede. Victoria and Maxima have been seen shopping together at a supermarket and Daniel has been seen jogging and they have also been walking at the village.

The spanish media's information isn't correct, at least concerning princess Maxima, since she is in Bali.

The Prince and Princess hosted what's called a Kanjer Lunch at Noordeinde Palace with guests wgi have been in the news in a special way lately,27 of them.Usually nothing is said on the guests but we do know this time socialist leader Diederik Samson adn Radio DJ Gerard Ekdom were among them.Also Baukje Vaatstra was in attendance,a sad story really as his daughter was murdured years ago and no-one knew who did it,until a few months ago,it was a neighbour.How marvellously sensative of the Willem-Alexander and Máxima to think of him this way!Nooreinde Palace today.

The Kanjer Luncheons will commence after the Inauguration as well,it has become a young yet wonderfull tradition ..
