According to Marc van der Linden in www.royalty-online.nl the Make a Difference Day of 2008 has been postponed from November to March 2009. This is done as the organisation will be working together with the Orange-fund ánd because the weather in March is usually somewhat better. MADD expects that the royals will turn up in March, as they did the last years when the event was organised in November.

Queensday/Koninginnedag 2009 will be held in the city of Apeldoorn. It will be a special day as it is the 100th birthday of the late Queen Juliana and the 70th birthday of Prof. Pieter van Vollenhoven.

The NOS yesterday broadcasted a 45 minutes broadcast with the review of the royal year. The presenter must have mentioned abdication rumours, how WA is ready for it all, etc etc. 20 times at least. Bloody annoying IMHO. Anyway, the clips they show are nice to watch and it gives a somwhat different impressin of HM the Queen. This time we are able to hear a few things what she is saying i conversations with people that she meets, she is quite funny and charming.

Queen Beatrix, the Prince of Orange, Princess Maxima, Princess Catharina-Amalia, Princess Alexia, Princess Ariane, Prince Friso, Princess Mabel, Countess Luana and Countess Zaria attended a performance of the Great Christmas Circus on the Malieveld in The Hague this saturday. The royals were there on the invitation of the 'Friends of the Juliana Childrens Hospital', who made sure that 1 euro of each sold ticket will go to the hospital.

What a pity that there are not more pictures of them! It would be so nice to see the children together again.

Gossip magazine Prive has an article on the cover that Queen Betrix and her sons lost half their fortune due to Bernhard Madoff. Apparenlty some mroe serious media copied the information, which made the RVD to comment the following:

'Usually the RVD does not comment on the private fortune of the Royal Family. But now serious media like firtsly the Algemeen Handelsblad copy the lies of Prive, including insunuations related to people, the RVD needs to say that the article was a lie from A to Z.'

Modern Monarchs: Meet the Glamorous Dutch Royals
Commoners Welcome to Marry Into Dutch Royal Family, First in Europe to Allow Women to Ascend to Throne

Quote:
When Her Majesty Queen Beatrix "by the Grace of God Queen of the Netherlands" celebrated her 70th birthday earlier this year, the Dutch press was feverish with speculation about whether she would abdicate.
However, the birthday came and went and there's still no sign that the monarch is going to retire, thus giving her oldest son, Prince Willem-Alexander, and her daughter-in-law, Princess Maxima, more time to prepare for their eventual takeover of the throne.

ABC News: Modern Monarchs: Meet the Glamorous Dutch Royals
Thank you for posting this link, Al_bina! I had no idea that the Dutch Royal Family were featured in an American media website. I am so pleased to see that ABC featured a story about them. I know so many people in the US who have no idea that there is even a royal family in the Netherlands. I have a friend who moved to the US from Argentina 8 years ago, who has never heard of Maxima, and didn't believe me when I told her that the Crown Princess of the Netherlands was from Argentina. This was a very nice article.

well I've learnt something - I didnt know the princesses are not going to be addressed as "royal highness" until they're 18.
Nor did I know that the Dutch were the first to allow women on the throne.

Well, the article is wrong about women on the throne. There were women on thrones long before the Netherlands actually existed as 1 united country (Elizabeth I of England for example), and our fiorst female reigning monarch would be Queen Wilhelmina, under the regency of her mother Emma in 1890, long after Queen Victoria, Queen Anne, Queen Mary etc. of the UK, Isabel I and II of Spain, Christina of Sweden, etc. etc.

I suppose van der Linden could mean that in 1983 equal succession laws were implemented for males and females, but this was only after Sweden passed such a law in 1980.

About the HRH: that the PoO and princess Maxima don't want their children to be adressed as HRH now is hardly something new, I have a hard time imagining if the Norwegian courtiers adress Ingrid Alexandra as HRH when speaking to her for example. The website of the RH does use HRH for them though.

Since the article is based on an interview with the editor of a gossip magazine these mistakes were to be expected. I guess the mistakes were meant to illustrate their main point., which is how close to the people, down to earth, democratic etc. the Dutch monarchy is? The commoner-thing is also a bi bogus considering most commoners entered the royal families in the generation of the current monarchs.

According to royalty-online HM and the prince of Orange DID attend the funeral of Caspar Graf von Oeynhausen. They flew to the airport of Paderborn, so the family was not snowed in.

HM the queen has been wearing that small diamond and sapphirre necklace a lot recently. Maybe something she just re-discovered? She wore it in the 60-ties but after that the first time we saw it again was when she visited Fürst Wittikind of Waldeck-Pyrmont in Bad Arolsen, a year ago or so. A nice ceremony, the first new knight since WWII I think (though a Polish regiment received one recently). Nice that HM is wearing the small pin of the Willems order. AFAIK she only wore the Willems order once, during her enthronement.

It looked like a very lovely ceremony. Has Willem-Alexander received this order as well (it is difficult to see if he is wearing it or not)?
