Yes it is indeed.HRH wishes to emphasize the importance and recognition of the Veterans and supports her nephew in this too.The bond between the Princess and the Veterans is a special one,as you know she was born in Canada during WW II,and has,together with her husband,a keen interest in matters concerning the Veterans,just like her father did.

With I think the only difference being that WWII veterans could call Prince Bernhard from his bed even at any time if in need of whatever sort of help from officials but didn't get it,anything.He,Bernhard,would personally see to it that matters were solved correctly.And it always was.The Veterans thought the world of him,and vice versa,and that never changed.They would bluntly call him at Soestdijk Palace,and he would personally see to everything,all of 'm,anytime.

The Royal Family will have their annual winter holidays in Lech again as they do for the past 6 decades.

The Mayor of Lech told to the national tv station NOS that there has been contact on their next stay this winter.
The RVD does not comment on the statement nor on if Princess Mabel will join in too.

What is this Blaricum..Is this a traditional village like Sandringham or do they go randomly to different villages each year for Christmas? I know the Queen does to different towns each year for Koninginnedaag..

So Princess Mabel was not in the UK over Christmas. This is very interesting as I would have thought she would want to be near PRince Friso. An interesting decision to be in Holland, but it would give her daughters a sense of "normality" at least.....
