Good to see C Prince W-A, I enjoyed the video. I think the last press images I saw of him were at the IOC in Copenhagen. I've missed seeing HH performing his royal duites. Thanks for posting!

The Prince visited a onehundred and five year old today.Mr. v/d Waal,who lives in Gouda,had the Prince visiting him for half an hour this morning.

The Prince visited Mr. v/d Waal due to his extraordinairy age,but also because of an event in the past that included both v/d Waal
and Queen Wilhelmina.

During WWII Mr. v/d Waal joined the Resistance.In 1943 he wrote a poem on the love for the Fatherland.It went as it did and the poem reached England,and Queen Wilhelmina.She was so taken by it that she used one of the verses for a leaflet to be thrown out of aircraft over occupied territory.This leaflet,with a handwritten text and photo of Queen Wilhelmina was deliverd over Zeeland shortly before the Liberation of the province in 1944.

A friend of the v/d Waal family thought the 105th anniversary was a reason to bring up this story again.

I just love Willem-A in full military uniform. It reminds me of his wonderful wedding to Maxima.
