The dutch invasion : The prince of Orange and Princess Maxima, Princess Laurentien, Prince Maurits and Princess Marilene, Princess Annette, Prince Floris and Princess Aimee, who will start their two weeks holiday (so I suppose they are with their children), Princess Margarita and Tjalling ten Caten and but not sure Prince Carlos, Prince Jaime and Princess Carolina de Bourbon de Parme

While I'm happy to see the 400th Anniversary of the founding of Neau Amsterdam/New York attended by the Dutch Royal Family, I'd rather it not be WA & Maxima. The whole lawsuit against the Associated Press has left a bad taste in my mouth for them.....well, him. I'm also surprised that this is the first I'm hearing of a 400th anniversary celebration.

I feel exactly the same way. I'm torn between hoping that he gets hounded relentlessly by the media the whole time he's here and hoping he gets completely snubbed without absolutely no coverage at all.

I suspect it will be closer to the latter, as his visit is not exactly big news here under any circumstances. The Albany media might cover it as a local story when he's up there, but the NYC papers are unlikely to pay any attention, unless they run a story about the AP suit.

The visit to the Obama´s is on except that they will visit Mrs.Obama and the President might pop-in,as to avoid that,while this is
not a State Visit,more Royals would wish to have the same treatment in simular cases in the future.According to dutch paper `Telegraaf`.
Anyway,they will meet.Simular cases,hmm,we founded NYC,can´t recall anyone else involved,let alone a Royal from abroad

But first,Patrick will take great pics of the wedding today!

The family members aren't there for the 400th anniversary to begin with. And if you have a problem with European law being much more strict - thank god - with paparazzi photographers & the people making money of it than the US law, then don't vent your anger towards the royal but towards the courts of law.

All dutch royalty reporters are in NYC,as are all Dutch photo-agencies,who qualify as the best anyway.

Maxima looks great! As does Hillary in her suit. Nice pearls. Nice suit on Willem as well. Not just trying to focus on the ladies.

Thanks Lucien for the articles explaining the Dutch influence on New York. Its so easy to forget that at one time, New York was a Dutch colony. Every time I travel on the Van Wyck Expressway to visit my grandmother in Queens, I am taking a little Dutch trip.
