Oh, I heard about that Water Prize. Is it given to someone every year? And does it always have to do with water? Just wondering...

I think Victoria looks really lovely although I was also hoping for new hairstyles after the different and pretty ones we've seen this summer. Her shoes look much higher than she normally wears but I think they look good.

Perhaps her advisors think that the ponytail and glasses make her look more mature and serious maybe that is how they think the future queen should be seen.

GrandDuchess 08-24-2005 09:22 AM

Victoria looks great, but there are those uggly glasses again... :D But other than those, she looks very healthy and happy - which is of course the most important thing. I hope she doesn't get any thinner now though, she's very thin as it is already.

Speech by the Prince of Orange, 21 August 2006
at the opening of the World Water Week ‘Beyond the River’, Stockholm

Excellencies, laureats, dear waterfriends,
Twelve years ago my father pointed me in the direction of water management. In his eyes, it was the most perfect preparation for my future task in life. Large parts of the Netherlands are below sea level, and so we have always had a special relationship with water. That, of course, was a factor. But there was more to it. To my father, water was the key to social, economic and ecological sustainability all over the world. So in his eyes, those who understand water understand life. Or, as W.H. Auden once put it so poetically: Thousands have lived without love, not one without water...........................

And another picture from the awarding of the Stockholm Junior Water Prize yesterday. And here we see how the Crown Princess likes to recycle outfits on multiple occasions that are sometimes very close to each other - as this looks like the outfit she wore at Solliden on her birthday on 14 July... She should at least stretch the time that passes before she recycles, not that it's a major issue to care about, but it would be nice if she could do that.
