I know that W-A and Maxima will be in New York next week for a wedding and then an event they are doing the following week, do you think the press will be allowed to take pictures?

Why are they allowed to take pictures of this event with the children there? They are allowed to pick what they want pictures taken of?

On saturday the royal field hockey association (KNHB) sent out a press statement saying that the visit of the prince and his family was private and photographs were not allowed to be published. Now, the press wrote angry articles about it immidiately because in the past attending sport-things were allowed to be published. fter this the RVD woke up and said they never asked the KNHB to send out this release, that the picture were allowed to be published etc. On sunday this the KNHB send out another statement, apologizing for the mess ton the members of the press.

Why the prince did allow pictures on this private visit is unclear to me, esp. since he stated in a letter to the court that it weas all so traumatising for him as a child to be pictured. So why he allows these pictures of his daughters is unclear, esp. since the last court case. Maybe the couple needs some good press after the recent week (which due to the KNHB did not work).

TRH hosted another `Kanjer`luncheon at Noordeinde Palace yesterday,hosting 27 dutch men and women who
are exemplary in the fields of sports,culture,journalism,science and the corporate world.

All guests had-have recently won a prize,award or were highlighted significantly.With these luncheons the Couple expresses their acknowledgement and appreciation for the achievements of them all.
There is no list of the guests,but it is free to the guests themselves to mention they were there if they feel like doing so.

The Prince and Princess thoroughly love the interaction between the guests,and them,during these occasions,
as most do not know the others.For example,who knows who the dutch champion Sudoka is?See.

An interview in Vanity Fair with the couple:

Quote:
Being a prince or princess isn't all tiaras and Tatler. In fact, it's a stage you can't exit. "You’re in this function and with this responsibility 365 days a year," the Dutch throne’s heir apparent, Willem-Alexander, Prince of Orange, told VF Daily’s Royal Watch.
"Twenty-four hours a day," emphasized his wife, Princess Máxima.
Maintaining a sane work-life balance isn’t a cinch for anyone, let alone Willem-Alexander and Máxima, who are your average working parents—they just happen to hold the job titles of prince and princess. This was one of our revelations when we recently caught up with the royals as they were, err, holding court in New York City’s Battery Gardens Restaurant, having just unveiled the New Amsterdam Plein and Pavilion. They were in New York as part of their week-long visit celebrating 400 years of Dutch-American relations, a bond that began with Henry Hudson's arrival in New York, and continues today with American and Dutch soldiers serving together in Afghanistan. After waiting for various news crews to clear the restaurant, we were invited to join the Dutch duo (unfortunately our enterance wasn't met with a 21-gun salute and greeting by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Mayor Michael Bloomberg, like the Prince and Princess's arrival to New York had been), where we chatted about what it means to be a young royal couple in the 21st century.

Mazregno, I am so excited about his article in Vanity Fair, thanks for posting it. It was a great article, and I especially agree with the last sentence, "Ah, so normal, but so elevated. In fact, perhaps that’s the best way to sum up the Dutch royal couple altogether." Dont you?
