Well, that certainly was succesfull for a dull day at the office, I heard so many people laughing about it! Henk Schiffmacher, the tattoo´king´ was on RTL boulevard to explain the thing, apparently the prince has Maxima on the side, a rose for each daughter and a 4th one for a possible 4th child, etc.

And the RVD didn´t object as it wasn+t used with a commercial purpose.

Here an article in Dutch.

Apparently the visit was dedicated to several aspects of city planning and development. The visit was part of a programme of the departmand of VROM (housing, city planning and environment). As it was a ´working visit´ I don´t expect any pictures, these kind of visits are usually rather discrete and meant to inform the royal about something. When I watched a documentairy on Princess Maxima´s first 3 years in The Netherlands it became clear that she paid more visits than we knew and only during the documentairy we saw she visited some neighbourhood in Rotterdam, a prison for youngsters etc.

The Prince of Orange did an interview with monthly magazine ´Elsevier´on...watermanagment, read the article in Dutch here (for those who can).

On December 19th the Prince will lock up the DJ´s of Radio 3FM in the glass house, at het Plein in The Hague. The DJ´s will be +locked up for the programme ´Serious Request´ for 6 days and they will do a marathon rafio programme to collect money for a good cause. Last year they were locked up by the Prime Minister and collected several million Euros. The good cause of this year: clean drinkwater!

Radio 3FM are joined by Belgium´s ´Studio Brussel´ and Swiss ´Couleur 3´, read more in Dutch here.

Dutch Crownprince Willem-Alexander (R) launches the annual 'Serious Request' radio campaign in The Hague, Netherlands on 19 December 2007. 'Serious Request' is an annual radio station 3FM fundraising effort in collaboration with the Netherlands' Red Cross. In the week before Christmas, three 3FM DJs will confine themselves to a glass house in the centre of The Hague for six days without food. 3FM radio is broadcast live twenty-four hours a day from the glass house during the campaign. The public can request songs for a small donation and are kept informed about the charity and its objectives. The public is asked to donate money and any individual or group fundraising effort is much appreciated.

Willem Alexander donated some money himself. Furthermore you can bid money for a 1 minute phone call with Willem Alexander. The highest bid (until know) is €510,-
