It's sure now, Queens day 2004 is in the Province Groningen, in the city Groningen and the village Warffum.

Warffum has 2400 resident, Groningen 179.000.
It's the second time that the Queen and her family visit Groninginen, in 1990 visits she the places Haren and Loppersum.

In Dutch:

Koninginnedag in Warffum en Groningen

Hare Majesteit de Koningin en leden van de Koninklijke familie vieren vrijdag 30 april 2004 Koninginnedag mee in de provincie Groningen en wel in Warffum en in de stad Groningen.
Warffum, met 2400 inwoners, maakt samen met veertien andere dorpen deel uit van de gemeente Eemsmond. Het dorp heeft een historische dorpskern en een gerestaureerde havenkom. Warffum is gelegen op een wierde, een oude woonheuvel van klei, een typisch kenmerk van de provincie. In het centrum bevindt zich het openluchtmuseum Het Hoogeland waar diverse authentieke gebouwen het leven van het Groninger platteland in de 19e eeuw laten zien.

De provinciehoofdstad Groningen, met 179.000 inwoners, is het economische en culturele centrum van de provincie. Door de ligging van Groningen tussen Drenthe en het Groninger Hogeland heeft de stad van oudsher een centrumpositie in de regio kunnen verwerven. Beeldbepalend voor de stad zijn het Groninger museum, de Rijksuniversiteit (sinds 1614) en de meer dan 500 jaar oude Martinitoren aan de Grote Markt.

Het is de tweede keer dat de Koningin en haar familieleden de Koninginnedagviering in Groningen bijwonen. In 1990 bezochten zij de feesten in Haren en Loppersum.

The royal family will not bring Princess Catharina-Amalia with them to Groningen on Queenday. The little Princess stay home. :)

sara1981 01-29-2004 06:44 PM

I ove to Diana take William with her to Australia. Charles and Diana never left the kids with nannys for very long time. They can say that they always have the parents with them. I belive all should do that. Is very said stay with the nany all the time. :heart: :heart: :heart:

I can't see the pics. The site is not in inglish :blush: :blush: :( :(

There is a difference in a baby that is a newborn like Princess Catharina Amalia, and one who is over a year old, like I believe William was when he went to Australia with his parents. I am sure I would not have included C.A. if I were Maxima. She did the right thing by leaving her at home with a nanny.

micas 01-29-2004 07:58 PM

I don't think in the age. The princess is in did very yong. :( :( :(

I don't think such a trip would be fair to a young baby.

justine 01-30-2004 04:58 AM

didn't Diana later (much later) make comments on how hectic and hard the trip was by bringing William along?

Not to mention...isn't Groningen IN the Netherlands (I am guessing...so if I am wrong PLEASE let me know) and Pc W-A and Pcss Maxima won't really be too far away from the baby? Is this a 'day trip' event?
It's not like they are going halfway around the world and leaving the baby at home :)

The distance between Groningen and The Hague is 235,4 km.

So it is a day-trip......I don't think that they go travel by shanks' pony. :P

I' m aware of the distance, no reason to be sarcastic. I still don't think the noise and the excitment etc. is appropriate for a newborn. They like to their quiet and like to sleep.

I don&#39;t think anyone meant to be sarcastic to you. I think someone asked about the distance that&#39;s all. I was wondering the same since I have no concept of where these places are in relation to The Hauge.

I agree with you. Since it seems to be a day trip I don&#39;t see any reason why CP Maxima would not leave the baby with the nanny. It seems logical to me, the baby is young & the parents will be home within a day.

Tomorrow is Queen&#39;s Day in the Netherlands. Particularly poignant this year with the loss of Queen Juliana shortly before Easter.

Stay tuned for this thread for lots of great pictures&#33;

did they dance for someone?

royal_sophietje 04-30-2004 05:45 AM

Well, there was a dance group of children demonstrating what they learned. Suddenly a couple of children runned to the royal family and picked Maxima, Laurentien and Marilene to dance with them.

The song they danced on was "Let me entertain you" from Robbie Williams
