Friends. No colleagues.

The Prince of Orange and Princess Máxima expressly did invite friends.


We also know that -for an example- Crown Prince Haakon and -Princess Mette Marit have had a sailing-weekend on the Friesian lakes together with the Oranges (including Constantijn and Laurentien).

Remember the Japanese Crown Prince and -Princess spending their two week holidays at the Queen's private retreat hidden behind Het Loo Palace Park.

The Count and Countess of Wessex seems to be amongst the royals and nobles which are in private befriended. According to the news they are regulary invited for a weekend in the Prince's private villa on the royal estate 'De Horsten' near The Hague. It is nice to hear such details, because it sheds a different light on the supposed 'insular attitude' of the Windsors.
The Prince of Wales is more of the generation of The Queen and they have met eacht other numerous times during their life, of course.

This also shed a new light on the absence of Crown Prince Frederik (although it is claimed he was there after 22.00 o'clock). Wouldn't you cancel a sailing meet for a friend? The Prince only becomes 40 once. But you can sail so many more times in your life. Maybe there are simply not that warm ties yet between Willem-Alexander & Máxima and Frederik & Mary?

I mean, if Frederik had to act as a Regent, okay. But it was just one of the many sailing events.

Or one of the none noble guests. The newpapers stressed that the Prince invited a lot of non-noble friends from his student-society, housemates etc. The lady in purple is armed with the gentleman that stands behind the Prince of Asturias, not with Letizia btw. IMHO she doesn´t resemble Rosario, who has a more boney facestructure.

But I forget that Letizia like first of all to be on the spotlights, it means that yesterday it was totally unsuccesful, isen't it, at least to imagine that tobe refined and discret is an other way to capture the attention... or other hypothesis to have a true mess on the head instead a good and styled hairdo is also a way to capture all the looks when all the hairdoes were absolutly ok?

Thanks for showing crisinaki. I believe the Princesses tried to escape their parents and wanted to go outside to see all the ladies in their dresses. Maxima later had to fetch them.

I have read on a dutch language board that on sunday the Queen, her grandchildren, Mabel, Friso and several foreign guests went to the ´Apenheul´ in Apeldoorn. The Apenheul is a zoo for monkeys.

As usual, Crisiñaki, your work as photoreporter is estupendous. Always the good pics, the best portraits, I can't imagine how you can have as a collector, CD to archive your tresor.

Thanks a lot to share with us this fantastic pics of this birthday.

Every body looks very relax and happy, the true kind touch given by the little princesses make this fathers very sympathetic.

I always been found of Maxima because it looks to me that she is very in acordance to her time, her generation, the important topics of the world where she can reasonablely to have a role ( microcredit ) because her professional background. but her motherhood has mad of her a woman very more charming and it seems obvious that the couple is very linked in the aim to take care of their girls in a large acception of their duty.
May be it's a characteristic of this new generation of Crown Princes who think that they have to take care of their babies by themselves the most it possible according the others royal duties.

The sailing event Fred participated in was scheduled months ahead of the 40th birthday party. The sailing competition was important to Denmark. What is the prince to do withdraw from something that was important to his country or go out to a party? If he withdrew from the sailing competition for a party he would have been critised as well.

I thought that somebody just swore that they saw Mary watching the fireworks. And didn't someone else say that Frederik and Prince Albert came later?

It's funny to see that in Queen Sonja's 70th birthday in Norway last July, Maxima wore an Orange gown (very similar shade and cloth to Mathilde's orange gown now) and Mathilde wore a fuschia pink gown then. And now, they exchanged colors

This subject has been rehashed to many times that it is almost impressive that you are still ignorant of it
It was not one of many sailing events; it was a leg of the Farr 40 World Championship planned a long time ago - and Frederik was heading his boat. So should he just leave?? Get real.
