I actually wonder, do normal fathers have any days of maternaty leave here in The Netherlands? I wouldn't have minded him to stay at home for a few days. Must be dangerous for him to go away so quickly. I read some funny articles in newspapers about people who have several daugheters. Apparently they are already forming new coalitions against him . And then Carmen Cerruti is at Eikenhorst to, which shouldn't help the case of this (self-claimed) 'cockerel'.

27 april will W-A celebrate his 40th birthday. NOS Actueel will broadcast the program "Portrait of a prince, Willem-Alexander 40" (Portret van een Prins, Willem-Alexander 40). It will focus on the prince as father, crown prince and water manager. The NOS followed the prince with the camera during 1 year. They even filmed in the garden of Villa Eikenhorst, with the prince playing with his daughters.

The Crownprince looks great! It seems he likes to be father. His smile is really bright every time that his wife gives birth!

Absolutely great news indeed!

Reason for the belated birthday gala is the birth of wee Ariane,as the Prince celebrates his 40th birthday next week friday april 27th,but he will celebrate that day within his family circle.

HRH The Prince of Orange opens a Wind Farm

His Royal Highness The Prince of Orange has opened a Wind Farm with 36 turbines in the North Sea, opposite the beach of Egmond aan Zee (province North-Holland). The turbines generate electricity.

Palace Het Loo

His Royal Highness The Prince of Orange will celebrate his 40th birthday (April 27th) on Palace Het Loo in Apeldoorn (province Guelders, east of the Netherlands). This will happen 5 months after his birthday actually: September 1st.

The location is this beautiful palace: see picture (click on the picture for bigger size).

The palace has a museal function these days, but can be used by the royal family whens requested. But large royal gatherings usually always have taken place in Amsterdam or The Hague. Two exceptions were the visit of Queen Elizabeth II in 1988, the Queen's 60th birthday in 1998 and now the coming grand celebration of Prince Willem-Alexander's 40th birthday. The Queen uses the medieaeval castle on the same estate (hidden in the woods) as a weekend retreat.

In 1986 Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh visited Palace Het Loo for a diner and fireworks in the style of William & Mary.

Is there anything else made public about this celebration? I assume it will be a private one, but will any foreign royals be invited? I wonder if they will give a ball there, I believe the present restaurant used to be a ballroom, before the restauration.

Cadeau to the Prince of Orange

We never ever have seen images of a birthday to the Prince of Orange. Yes, guests entering and leaving, but never how it looked inside.

In this picture you see one of the rare pictures of a cadeau: the Prince receives his 1985-birthday present, a 4,5 years old gelding, called 'Zender'. The location is the Royal Mews at the Crown Estate Het Loo. (see picture).

Yes,members of Reigning- and non Reigning Houses have been invited as well as family and friends.The restaurant used to be a ballroom,build during the Reign of Queen Wilhelmina,but was still used as such several times,one I know off was the (costumed-)wedding ball of Maurits and Marilène,HM made an entrance as the Fairy-Queen,all in blue and gold and a magic stick in her hand... .

I'm sure there will be a Ball again,but probably in the Audience Hall on the first floor.No further details are known yet,it's still early day.I've posted the announcement of the RF website on the calendar.

New portrait of the princely family!

Two wonderful portraits on ANP, I don't know the location where the picture was made.
Most likely it was made on the royal domain De Horsten, where the Prince and Princess live in De Eikenhorst.
Or it was made on the Queen's weekend retreat, Het Oude Loo.

Both pictures show:
HRH the Hereditary Princess of Orange
HM the Queen
HRH Princess Máxima of the Netherlands
HRH Princess Ariane of the Netherlands
HRH the Prince of Orange
HRH Princess Alexia of the Netherlands

Are these the first photos of the family? Lovely ones indeed; thank you Henri. Amalia reminds me of Princess Beatrice at that age.

Yes. The first official pictures of the Queen with the Oranges with their newest sprout.



I like it how close the Queen is to her grandchildren. Like on this unforgettable picture (with Lady Joanna Zaria & Lady Emma Luana)
