Oh goody! Hopefully some American news outlet can tear themselves away from election coverage to show some of WA & Maxima's visit to NYC.

I hate to be a pessimist, but I doubt that we will get to see any coverage of their visit from any of the American media outlets. The American media likes to ignore things that deal with anything positive or international.

Some information on the website of the RF, look here (in Dutch only).

Apparently a delegation of the cabinet will join HHRRHH in New York, among them prime minister Balkenende, minister Verhagen (Foreign Affairs) and Minister Koenders (Development Aid)

I am going to be in New York at the same time, too bad we couldn't go to lunch!! The media here won't even consider this news worthy, maybe in New York with the mayor they might mention it. Thank you for the royal forums!!!!!!

Princess Máxima will only be in NYC till tuesday,she has engagements here in The Netherlands on the 24th and 26th.

The Prince,Chair of UNSGAB,has a very busy program all week,meeting after meeting,coinciding with and in the slipstream
of the 63rd General Assembly of the United Nations,hence the Government members in the delegation.

The Princess,and the PM,will participate in the summit on Africa on monday.

On tuesday the Prince,and the PM,will be present at the opening of the 63rd General Assembly by UN Secretary-General Ban-Ki-Moon.
In the afternoon there's the visit to Governors Island and the meeting with sponsors of the NL -NYC2009 400 Years celebrations.

Ahead of the trip to Governors Island the Prince,and the PM,will visit Governor Paterson and mayor Bloomberg of NYC.

On wednesday the Prince will have meetings with,ao,staff of UNSGAB.

On thursday the Prince will attend,and speech at,the Roundtable for Education and Health.

Ofcourse we will see the odd picture here or there,but not as many as many would like I'm afraid...

I don't think coverage is the main goal of the visit btw, it seems it is very much a working visit, evolving around microfinance and the UN.
