Can anyone tell me if there will be a photoshoot of the Dutch royal family on holiday this year?

Are they actually going on holiday to Italy this year?

Thanks

No there won't be one,as there was the photo-shoot in june at Alexia's birthday already,so they would be left alone by the press for the rest of the summer.But don't worry,in less then 4 weeks (september 1st)there will be fantastic photo-shoots as Alexander will host his (belated) 40th birthday party/reception at Het Loo Palace with all the family,friends and his "collegues" attending.It will be a lavish event.

And yes,the family went to Italy july 8th,and spend (part of-) their holidays there.

Thanks very much for the info.

Will there be other royals attending his birthday celebrations?

I presume it might be a gala event.

is it confirmed that it will be the first of september? can we expect foreign (young) royals there, or is it likely to be a private party with willem-alexander's dutch friends?

Yes, it is confirmed. Apart from the family and friends, also members of the royal houses will attend

No. Coming week the royal agenda will start again with various audiences. visits, openings, appointments, etc. The Prince of Orange will be in Stockholm the whole week for the World Water Forum.

The Queen has various items planned. Princess Máxima has no duties for the coming week, no public duties anyway.

No Carlota,it will be a grand event,and Het Loo Palace such a beautifull setting,as I said all his "collegues" have been invited,meaning ofcourse the Heirs to the Thrones,and their spouses,as well as other members of their families.

To Kelly,oh no,not two months,more like four weeks.But ofcourse HM always is "on duty" even on holiday,she still has to sign Acts,and gets suitcases with papers to read.Or returns for an official function in between like last weekend as she attended the closing ceremony of the Kingdom Games:
Het Koninklijk Huis

Except during the last week of her holidays when as a rule/tradition she is left in peace,not bothered by official papers nor anyone official except in the case of an "emergency' ofcourse and only the PM and the director of the Kabinet of HM The Queen know her whereabouts.Grand her that,she had a busy schedule the last few months,and much more to come,if not yet announced,in the coming months.

You can always check the calendar for their engagements.

A rather nice video from YouTube of Dame Vera Lynn singing "We'll Meet Again" to Queen Juliana and Prince Bernhard.

Thanks for the information. I was wondering about their annual photoshoot. I have been so busy myself that I have not be keeping up like I usually do. I can hardly wait for the 40th b-day celebrations. Just a couple more weeks.

According to NOS news the inhabitants of Laage Vuursche are complaining about the new anti-terror measures taken at Drakensteyn Castle, former residence of the Queen (and probably her future one). Especially the new 3.5 meters high black fence spoils the character of the village. The news even interviewed Diana Bosch van Drakenteyn, whose brother sold the castle to Beatrix. Diana was even measuring steps to show how large the future building of the marechaussee will be built. The news hinted that the abdication of Beatrix is not too far away, rather odd for the public station IMHO.

I wouldn´t count on much. The birthday ball for Beatrix 60th birthday only had two pictures released, no group picture was made public. I suspect that they will continue this policy and consider it a private event, so a minumum of pictures, and no tiara´s either of course. Calvinists....

The singer's voice is moving..and what can I say about the Queen? Excellent..Excellent as ever. She is very professional, and also has the true spirit of a Queen.

Vanesa.

On the other hand,there was extensive coverage of HM 60th birthday celebrations on tv,the arrival and reception at the Stedelijk Museum,the trip to Het Loo Palace on saturday and the service at the Westerkerk the next morning,all released on video shortly after.
It's in my collection.
As will happen with this event I hope.See it from the suny side,we'll have enough to oh and ah for I'm sure.


Btw,the reason for the concert,above,was the 80th birthday in 1989 of then Princess Juliana,IIRC.

Well, when you prepare yourself for the worst the end result can only be better and you won´t get disappointed . As the birthday of the crownprince didn´t pass unmarked in April I still feel they will consider this private. But perhaps we will get some glimpses, it would be nice if they release the programme soon.

Personally I would like to see the birthday ball at het Loo with HM in the Stuart parure, Maxima with the Wurtemberg pearls, extended version, Mabel with the floral diamond tiara Laurentien and the Mellerio rubies, Irene and her peacock parure, Margarita and the laurel tiara, Maria-Carolina with the diamond bandeau, Margriet with the Mellerio sapphires, Marilene with the aquamarines, Annette with the Pavlovnik tiara, Anita and pearl-button tiara, Aimee with the laurel-wreath tiara, Christina and the emerald parure which leaves Juliana Guillermo to chose either the diamond butterfly or the brooches of the tiara of the East Indies as hairornament(s). And I am leaving out the necklaces, brooches, devant corsages etc etc. But as the americans say, ´it ain´t happening baby´.
