Thanks for the link, although I see that it is only in dutch. I tried converting it to enlish but it hasn't been updated. Can anyone say what kinds of questions were asked?

I will do two, maybe the other dutch members will do a few too.

28 what does the prince like the most about his job?
The prince finds it a privilage to meet different people and organisations.

37 What time does the prince have to go to bed according to his mother?
The prince is 40 years old, He therefore descides himself what time he goes to sleep. When you do not have to go to school anymore you are allowed to descide for yourself

Questions 31 to 40 are from kids:

31 Which is the favorite childrens book of the Prince?

The Prince loves to read to his daughters,but they determine the choice.Nijntje ( little rabbit),Gruffalo and (dutch author)Annie M.G.Schmidt are the girls favorites and have to be read over and over again..

32 When will he become King?

The only one who knows the answer to that question is The Queen.

33 How many swimming certificates does the Prince have?

He has A and B,and skill certificate 1 and 2 as well as a 3 star CMAS diving/rescue license.

34 Does the Prince ever ride a bicycle?

The Prince and Princess Máxima love outings on their bikes while taking Princess Amalia and Princess Alexia along,but mostly in weekends only,they love the nearby kids animal farm.

35 What's the Princes lucky number?

He doesn't really have a lucky number but if he had to name one it would be 2 because he got married to Princess Máxima on 02-02-02.

36 Could the Prince come and visit us at home some day?

The Prince would love to visit all the children,but with sooo many in the Netherlands,that will not work,unfortunately.

38 Which annimals does the Prince like best?

He loves horses most of all,and like his mother The Queen,loves riding them.

39 How many children would the Prince like to have?

The Prince and Princess have 3 beautifull daughters now and they are very happy with them.The Prince strongly believes one always has to cherish what you've got....

Thanks susan alicia and lucien for translating some of the questions.
The questions from the kids were cute, especially the one about his bedtime Though it does give one a funny image of Queen Beatrix checking on the prince to see if he is in bed

It reminds me of one of the threads in the Norwegian forum, can't remember which one, but Princess Martha Louise answered some questions from kids after the birth of Leah (I think it was Leah), and they were just as adorable questions.

But thanks again guys!
