I would never ever yell. When people are standing in the way, I would say: "Pardon, can I pass, please?" followed by a "Thank you".

The King should not have passed anyway: the guitarist of The Clarks was on De Horsten, I understood, which is the King's private property. It is an example of what foreigners always see as Dutch rudeness.

Agree with you !

The Bloemcampschool was not, like most elementary schools, after King's May holiday. The holidays only began on May 4th. The King and Queen were also aware after 5 May was no longer scheduled, so the family was on vacation.

Royal family is experiencing active May holiday

The previous weekend the king and his family were spotted on their sailboat near Harlingen:

Marc van der Linden heard from 'court circles' that the king and queen are invited to pay a state visit to China later this year. He suggests that such a state visit can be combined with one to Malaysia, a country with which the Netherlands has cooperated a lot last year due to the MH17 mass murder.

They'll be in China in October for the State Visit...but then other then that Marc van der linden doesn't decide what should be next in the agenda...even though he comments on all things royal for a 100 years already,he's still not in that position....yet...:whistling:

Does the sailboat still belong to Princess Beatrix or has she turned it over to her son and his family?

It is really a beautiful traditional Friesian ship, look at that carved dragon on the rear and the golden what-is-it on top of the flagpole.

Cute story:

A Dutch guy who traveled to Argentina and went to eat at Maxima's brother's restaurant left a card there asking her to sign it and to send it to him. If she did, he would ask his girlfriend to marry him...and she did! She wrote that it's nice they like Argentina, that they should enjoy their trip and that she hopes she will marry him.

The Queen, her daughters and her parents were in Hoorn sunday on a private visit.

Apparently they came on the Groene Draeck and used the water taxi afterwards.

This city is very beautiful. They are visiting for the some reason or just choose a city. I mean have this city something important to see?

Marengo 06-15-2015 11:33 AM

It has a statue of Jan Pietersz. Coen. But let's hope they weren't pictured with him as it isn't politically correct these days I suppose (but what is?). It is just a charming town, picturesque and next to a big lake.

eya 06-15-2015 11:37 AM

Thank Marengo. Yes what i see from the pictures is very charming. You have right these days nothing is politically correct especially for the royals.

Next to the Queen in that boat is Prof Dr Onno Ruding, former Dutch minister of finances, former executive director of the IMF and former vice-Chair of the Board of CitiCorp, so one of the most influeantial bankers worldwide. He is -since years- a close friend of the King and is also Chairman of the Board managing Palace Het Loo in Apeldoorn.

In 2001 Prof Dr Ruding organized the first formal banquet with the Zorreguieta family and the younger members of the royal family: the two brothers of the Prince of Orange and some De Bourbon de Parme and Van Vollenhoven cousins. That banquet was held at the Châtau de La Hulpe, "next door" to the estate of the Ruding family. The Zorreguieta family (father Jorge, mother María del Carmen, brother Martín, brother Juan and sister Inès) was complete.

It seems Máxima's father and Prof. Dr. Ruding know each other: the one as director of the Banco República and the other as as Vice-Chair of CitiCorp. The young Máxima Zorreguieta made her first steps in the banking world at the Banco Mercado Abierto, a daughter-bank of... Banco República. Well... well... extremely small world... Remarkable to see such a powerful banker still being so close with the Zorreguietas, since 2001.

WOW soooooo extremely small world i say.Is nice to have these friends.

thanks for the information - that's an amazing coincidence! as if maxima was somehow destined for what would come... :smile:
in any case, it's great to see that her family could come to holland, specially after her father's illness.
