How was the reaction of the public (I assume not very interested in illiteracy but in soccer....) on the princely initiatve?

Sorry,I missed the match as well...:rolleyes:

Story magazine is carrying a poll on its website, asking the visitors give their opinion about a fourth pregnancy of Princess Laurentien ("Laurentien zwanger van haar vierde kindje!")

Story

Did I miss something here? Is she really pregnant?

HMTLove23 09-12-2007 04:47 PM

What would people think of fourth pregnancy. Should she or shouldnt she.

crm2317 09-12-2007 06:56 PM

I would say she should. If she is fit and healthy enough then why not. Is the article's poll just for fun or do people reaally think she is pregnant again? Claus-Casimir needs some male support lol

Marengo 09-12-2007 07:00 PM

There were two options:

1) No I can´t believe it, it is too soon
2) Of course, it always goes so quickly with the Oranjes

Obviously complete nonsense but entertaining I presume. Most people voted the second option btw.

-
In the mean time Laurentien was interviewd by Peter van der Vorst for RTL boulevard about illiteracy again. She suggested that it might be an idea to get a storyline about an illiterate in a soap series to get more attention for the subject and more understanding too. She said all that with her usual terribly affected accent. She also said, when asked, that her own children were progressing well at school, where they returned to just last week (as Belgian schools start on Spetember 1st).

Letizia_guapa 09-13-2007 03:25 PM

I like her look at the soccer match and i love her dress! :flowers: Her body, like Letizia, bounces back into topmodel shape very easy.

magnik 09-13-2007 03:45 PM

About possible pregnancy:
- Laurentien is 41 so she can still have a baby like for example Sophie of Wessex or Alexandra of Hannover.
And Leonore (*3.06.2006) is 15 months now so next sister or brother when she will be around two... like it was with Eloise (*8.06.2002) and Claus-Casimir (*21.03.2004).
- Or maybe she doesn't loose weight after Leonore.

Btw. children of Willem-Alexander - Catharina-Amalia (*7.12.2003), Alexia (*26.06.2005), Ariane (*10.04.2007) and Constantin were born almost two years by each other.

lucien 09-19-2007 01:18 PM

Last night HRH Prince Constantijn attended the premiere of the theaterplay "3Zusters" at the Stadsschouwburg,Amsterdam.

It was the first Cum-Laude performance by the new theater department StageMasters of mr.Joop v/d Ende Theater Productions,
an initiative aiming at supporting young actors and giving them a forum to show their talent.

what is she wearing, she looks like a cross between princess julinia and a dinnerlady

Regina 10-03-2007 06:26 PM

I ask the same... what is she wearing?
Honestly I am looking at this pic and I don't know if I should laugh... or cry! This black dress (or is it a coat?!) is awful. The same about the structured pants. Her radiant smile and commitment to this good cause saved the day.

Today Prince Constantijn had one of his rare public "performances". Delivering a speech at the conference 'Equal Opportunities for All, Citizenship and Human Capital in a Diverse Europe'.
Could have been interesting to many, but only very people showed up (a couple of hundreds instead of 2,000). He even joked about the many gaps in the auditorium.
Says enough about his Brussels job, i.e. improving the communication about "Europe". http://images.boardhost.com/emoticons/confused.gif
Usually a royal attracts a bigger audience not so in his case (Princess Laurentien is much, much better known in the netherlands.)

i always love to see her with the children. She enjoys being with them. i always like to see her at make a difference day too. This year she just went in the sand with the kids with her beautiful dress. I like her tipical Belt-on-jacket. To bad there are no pictures of it.

Oh my, those stockings are terrible. The rest of the outfit is really quite nice on her. But the shoes and the stocking ruin it for me.

Red suit's her, Laurentien looked nice, but overall dissapointing. those stocking with the red dress and the shoes get lost with the stockings.

Marengo 12-08-2007 11:50 AM

The princess started the speech with a joke, and wondered if she should greet everybody with ´goedemoggel´, as that word is a hype after a commercial of KPN. The commercial shows a company where all employess make spelling mistakes as in sms textmessages, so instead of ´goedemorgen´ they greet each other with ´Goedemoggel´ for example. I believe there are now 4 songs made with the title ´goedemoggel´.

Prince Constantijn has become Patron of the World Press Photo Foundation,Amsterdam.

The,(dutch based and founded in 1955),non-profit organisation says it is overjoyed and honoured that
HRH has choosen to be it's patron according to Alexander Rinnooy Kan,Chair of the Foundation.

The foundation aims at supporting the work of professional internationally operating photographers.

Marengo 01-14-2008 02:21 PM

Good to see that the Prince is expanding his ´duties´ in The Netherlands somewhat. The world press photo foundation is a rather interesting cause. Do you know if he has any other patronages apart from this one? Something to do with Europe maybe?

lucien 01-14-2008 03:22 PM

He's also an Honorary Chair of the Prince Claus Foundation,
Chairman of the foundation "The Hague Process on Refugees and Migration,
Patron of the National Musical Instrument Fund.

I actually passed Westerkerk yesterday and saw some policemen and an AA-car, a red carpet and a guy who opens doors of cars. Didn't wait for the princess though. And as I was with a friend who lives across the canal I could see 5 cars driving by every 10 minutes with the text 'Geen' 'Stad' 'Zonder' 'Boeken' , on the top of 4 cars. They drove from Rozengracht over prinsengracht to leliegracht and back, 20 times or more...

You are so right! Always an element of "Look at me!" ALWAYS posing for the camera.
I was ready to praise her restraint in dress (nice print dress, more subdued jewelry) and then I saw the full-length photo and saw her blue stockings!
She always just misses the mark --- again: "Look at me"

pamk 05-23-2008 01:11 PM

Just read the whole thread --- I don't think that I have ever seen Laurentien in the same outfit twice (of course, some of her outfits should be tossed after the first wearing because they are so hideous!)
Her clothing budget must be enormous plus all of the costume jewelry and shoes.
Laurentien doesn't believe in recycling her clothes and must a clothing shop's best friend!

Conservative? I think you missed the trousers, they are fit for a circus (IMHO of course); look here.

I'm afraid I was just joking, I meant "conservative" - Laurentien has never let me down in that way. ;)
Btw, strange enough, this outfit has grown on me, it's so Laurentien! :rolleyes:

Laurentienne 09-15-2008 07:00 PM

Yes it is ver Laurentien! I love that a princess dare to dress a bit strange and with outfits that is surprising, because there are also those princesses that dress so "safe" that they almost get boring. Like CP Mary of Denmark. CP Mary is gorgeous, but it has become very boring to see her really. Always correct dressed, and never do any fashion mistakes. Even though I like CP Mary's style too, I like the freshness and braveness of Laurentien. :)

Only Laurentien did not go back to her school, the school celebrated the thing in a church, the Kloosterkerk, where Princess Ariane was baptized. HM usually goes to this church on sundays too.

This outfit is great on her -- it is her, and she is not afraid to wear it plus she has that great smile. I give her credit. She seems to be secure in her skin.

Maxie 10-15-2008 04:54 AM

Laurentien must have had a great time yesterday, participating in the celebrations of her old high school. I always love to go back to my old high school, I had a wonderful time there. So at least once a year I go there to attend a mass that takes places there every year. I've been going to it since the mid eighties (my dad teaches at my old high school) and it really is very special. I hope for Laurentien that she has good memories about her school time too.

Btw, I really like what she's wearing. Very normal, I knew she could do it. ;)

Wow! She looks normal ;). It looks like she was very happy to attend this event. I hope that she was able to reconnect with her school friends.

Her speech was very impressive. I didn't know that she lived in Asia when she was a teen. One of the things that has always impressed me with Laurentien is her intelligence. Whenever I read her speeches or interviews, I am always struck by how knowledgeable she seems, and how much she truly understands and cares about the various causes that she supports.
