Today,Veterans Day,we honour the hundred thousand veterans alive from WW II,the Korean War and all missions since,till this present day.

Originally celebrated on may 5th with a parade,the celebration was moved to what was the birthday of the late Prince Bernhard,june 29th,or the saturday close to that.Today.
Is it the 1st time that Princess Margriet take part in the Veterans Day, lucien? I could only remember seeing pictures of her husband did before, but never see the Princess.

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.
