Yes, both P.Irene (grandmother of the two babies) and P.Beatrix were present at the baptism as well as almost the entire DRF

I've always admired the way that the Dutch RF has supported each other through happy and sad times.

The Pope spoke to Prince Jaime for around 30 minutes. Also Princess Viktória and little Princess Zita were presented to the Pontiff. It wonders me why the Prince wore no any Order, his (stylish) white tie with black gilet (Vatican protocol) was virginal without any decoration.

Usually a Dutch Ambassador at the Vatican wears an official costume, look at Prince Jaime's predecessor: http://img.youtube.com/vi/PzeiGVQOXkk/0.jpg

The prince and priness did not succeed in finding a renter for their Amsterdam appartment and have withdrawn the appartment from rental websites.

Earlier they already decreased the prince from 2750 to 2300 euros per month. A rather high sum for such a small place, though it is on a canal and it does have a garage.

Yesterday the Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands at the Holy See, Prince Jaime de Bourbon de Parme, made a stroll through Rome with his spouse Princess Viktória and their daughter Princess Zita.

For decades the Netherlands sends countless flowers to Rome, to decorate the Piazza San Pietro for the Easter Mass and the blessing Urbi et Orbi. This not only is about the flowers, it also includes dozens of trucks, chauffeurs, volunteers, their travel, accomodation, etc. A costly operation but it delivers goodwill for the Netherlands ánd is a nice honour to the Pope. The Prince and his family were given an explanation on this year's decorations.

Princess Viktoria of Parma has become the patroness for the Dutch branch of the organisation 'Save the Children', an organisation that focusses on childrens rights. Princess Juliana was patroness of the organisation from 1980 to 2004.

Before Viktoria accepted the position she travelled to India in January, to get to know the work of the organisation. Although the princess lives in Rome, she will be present on Monday for a fund raising at the Efteling amusement park.

I like the Hungarian writing of the name: Princess Viktória. Sounds like a lady strolling the chique Andrássy Boulevard in Budapest and drinking an espresso at Ruszwurm Grand Café...

Okaaaay... you do realize that there probably are lots of Viktoria's in Hungary and probably not all are chique ladies?

Of course I do, that takes not away I like the name "Princess Viktória".

I like it better than "Princess Estelle", for an example. Tastes differ.

Princess Viktoira attended the fundraising event of Save the Children at the Efteling park today, April 13.

Viktoria emptied the "Wishing Well". Visitors of the park can throw coins into it and do a wish, the proceeds are annually donated to Save the Children.

Great to see Princess Viktória in public. And for a very good cause.

On May 4th the prince, his wife and daughter attended a WWII commemoration service in the church of Santa Maria in Trastevere, Italy. They were invited by Mgr. Punt. The service was attended by 800 pelgrims from the bishopric Haarlem-Amsterdam. The choir sang the Requiem of Gabriel Fauré.

Thank you for sharing.

It is interesting that they attended an event in Italy as even though they are members of the House of Bourbon-Parma, they appear to spend most of their time in the Netherlands.

I wonder why Princess Zita-Clara was brought to the event, nevertheless, it's lovely to see her as we haven't seen her for a while (not since her christening I don't think). She's very sweet.

Well, the Prince of course also is Ambassador of the kingdom of the Netherlands at the Holy See. When the Prince welcomed the pilgrims from the Diocese of Haarlem-Amsterdam he reminded them that he also has lived in the same diocese (in the city of Amsterdam).

It was more as a private person, as a Dutchman, as a faithful from his "old" diocese and also as an Ambassador (it was a Remembrance ceremony) that the Prince was there. Not so much in his "capacity" as a Prince of the House de Bourbon de Parme, I think.

The weekly program Blauw Bloed (Blue Blood) had a short encounter with Prince Jaime de Bourbon de Parme. An excellent diplomat and well-formulating gentleman. He told about this great exhibition, with artefacts from the Vatican musea, in the New Church "once a Catholic church, then Protestant and now a secular building, very much fitting in the changing of times".

The Prince thought it was exciting to be Ambassador during the papacy of the current Pope, who seems to trigger the public and is -also by non-Catholics- seen as an authority. The Prince also stated that the Vatican may be small, its "organisation" is immense, has a world wide presence and reaches all places on the globe. The Prince mentioned that he was stationed in Iraq, Afghanistan (and Brussels) but being an Ambassador at the Holy See added a new dimension.
