Surely a bit easier to attend an event like this at the moment, than a joyful, colourful one..

HRH will be on a test trip to London on board "Hms. Holland",a new naval patrol vessel of the Royal Dutch Navy.March 14th.

The trip will go to London as the Prince will handover something special to the British Maritime Museum in London tomorrow.The decoration that once adorned the 17th century Flagship "Royal Charles" of the British Navy.

It was captured by Dutch Admiral Michiel de Ruyter during a surprise attack on the British fleet in Chatham.

The piece will be on loan to the BMM from the Rijksmuseum,Amsterdam.

In London he was met by prince Michael of Kent (among others). Now I have nothing against the prince, but a pity that none of the Windsors higher on the royal ladder could grace themselves to meet the crown prince. Not surprising at all of course, esp. if you consider the idiotic proceedings at the wedding of William & Kate. A pity that these foreign royals keep lining up to go to the UK. I am sure that they will all show up for the jubilee of EII - a quick lunch probably, or maybe they can order take away fish & chips for them in the canteen of Bucklingham Palace. I guess it is good PR at home for them.

Well the engagement was at the Greenwich Maritime Museum and Michael is Commodore in Chief of Maritime Reserves so it seems appropriate enough that he would be there to great the Prince of Orange.

The Prince of Orange and the Chair of the German Bundestag,Norbert Lammert,will share the Patronage over a day of the german language on april 19th.

The day aims at getting more students interested in german as their numbers are declining,and very much so.

The Prince doesn't look too impressed.
Love the expression on his face!

of Barendrecht today, March 29, 2012.
The Centrumpost is made available for social initiatives by the housing association Patrimonium
for local projects like: De Boei, where people with cancer can meet their relatives and families,
Superwomen, an initiative where girls between 12 and 17 years old learn to be defensible.
The reformed church is celebrating its 500 year anniversary.

Yesterday I had a great day. I had a day off and went to Barendrecht to see the prince of Orange. Barendrecht is a place 15 minutes away from my home.

The prince was in a very good mood, very friendly. I got a handshake of the prince!

Here some of my photos:
