The Prince was interviewd on the matter; he said that he always closes the tap when he brushes his teeth, something which his father was very strict about but that he does spend too much time under the shower. He also said that the toilets at Villa Eikenhorst all have a suystem that saves water too.

I've perceived that strictness regarding the tap closing in the Netherlands in general. I believe it is a truly healthy and enviroment-friendly habit we should all adopt. However, it is curious that the Prince chose to point this out...don't you think?

Well, I found the most curious thing that he talked about the royal toilets in Villa Eikenhorst . I think he just wanted to be charming and wanted to show that he too, like everybody else, can do more things at home for nature and such.

On another note, the PoO certainly has a busy sheduele now!

Busy schedule?I add more and more each day at "their" agenda here.It is impressive indeed.
And,remember,not too long ago someone said on the BRMB that the agenda of the dutch RF wasn't as impressive as Aunt Lillibeth's.
It is,and they,each and every member,has/have more in depth approaches as well.My opinion.
