Other people invited were the coach of the national ladies soccer team, and the most popular radio DJ, Edwin Evers. I believe that Linda de Mol (television presenter) was also invited but that she had to decline as due to prior engagements.

I like the idea of these luncheons, maybe they can expand it and invite other people too. I know that these days 'success' is the most important thing in many people's lives, but it wouldn't hurt to invite less succesfull people and talk to them during a lunch either. There are a lot of mediocre people (like myself) who would also like to have lunch with the prince and princess, there is no need to reserve them just for the more fortunate & successfull only .
It is not just for the succesfull or most fortunate only."Mediocre's" like vous are invited too,just rescue someone out of a canal twice ..
or tackle EdRvZ into one on a rainy day....et voila...

Oh,you never know what's on your road ahead....chances are that maybe you get invited due to being the most excellent historian the
UvA delivered in decades.That will get you a seat.

And you're not mediocre,silly boy..

The Prince and Princess will attend the start of the celebration on 50 years Duivenvoorde Castle Foundation,
Duivenvoorde Castle wednesday afternoon april 28th.

The Foundation came to being by the last inhabitant of the castle,Ludolphine Henriëtte baroness Schimmelpenninck van der Oye
as she decided to bring the whole castle and its contents in a Foundation to keep it all together as a cultural monument.

Nice that they arrived with their bikes. I remember some criticism on various boards when they went to the city hall of Wassenaar with their car, a few years ago. Castle Duyvenvoorde is close to Villa Eikenhorst, the weather is nice and so is the (short) trip. I like the princess summer-like outfit. Let's hope we will keep this weather for the next days, although they are predicting rain for Queensday.

I love the fact that the man in the back, is dressed in full military uniform riding one handed.
It is wonderful that they are arriving by bike.

One of the hightlights of the evening has been that Princess
Maxima played some scenes of "Romeo and Julia" with the
actor Pierre Bokma. She obviously had a lot of fun on stage


Here's the ppe gallery.

Nice to see them during a public duty together again. They received a study from the national planning agency about how they think the country will be in 2040.

I'm delighted too! I'm a huge fan of the Netherlands National Team. Ihope they could be champions at the World Cup competition. However, if they are not champions, they should be sub-champions, that is great too!

I've seen the match this evening with my heart pounding loud, since I jst wanted "the Oranges" to win. I like Uruguay as a country very much, but as monarchist, I wanted the victory of a monarchist country...and if the crownprincess is Argentinian I would like to see the Netherlands champions more than anything! I also likes Germany - my two nephews are half-german, half-argentinian - but I must admit that I wish two monarchist countries as champion and sub-champion. Spain-Netherlands, or Netherlands-Spain would be all right!

Fanatic? Me? Of course NOT!

Vanesa.

P.D: I just loved the way Princess Maxima and her husband celebrates every single goal their team did, and how they seemed very worried when Uruguay did those two goals.
