Actually, I think it is quite a nice little harbour, although I would have chosen local stone or granite. A few lobster pots and some old rope would finish it off very nicely.

According to the Telegraaf newspaper, the plot of land next to the villa has been sold. The new neighbours of the king and queen are Marc Dreesmann and his wife Janneke Beerkens. Dreesmann founded 'Commenwealth Investments' and is a member of the billionaire family Dreesmann, of the V&D department stores/Vendex -now Maxeda.

Mr. and Mrs. Dreesmann are living in Brasschaat, Belgium, where they built a Disney-esque palace. Not in the best taste, but well...

Marc Dreesmann is the youngest son of the late Prof. Dr. Anton Dreesmann, one of the big captains of industry of The Netherlands. He was a hereditary papal noble and viscount of Cairú (Brazil). Marc's late aunt, the family rebel Cécile Dreesmann was a well known Dutch socialite & artist, who was rumoured to have had an affair with Prince Bernhard. The family is from Amsterdam originally and very catholic. Mrs. Dreesmann-Beerkens is in the board of various art and human rights foundations. They also sponsor the Prince Claus Fund.

Interesting that there is still a large "us knows us" around the royal family. That is nothing new, Princess Beatrix has always been very befriended with the Heineken family, Prince Bernhard was close to the Philips family. Princess Maria Carolina has married a Brenninkmeijer (the richest family of the Netherlands) and now the King is neighbours with a Dreesmann, the family still in the top 5 ot top 10 of most wealthy Dutchies, depending how it is (not) calculated since some of them have chosen domicily in Belgium.
