RTL News and many other Dutch news sources quote the German magazine Gala. The magazine cites 'sources close to the Greek RF' that claim that Princess Mabel is romantically involved with the French multi millionaire Arpad Busson, ex husband of super model Elle Macpherson and ex-partner of actress Uma Thurman. He also dated actress Farah Fawcett and last year the British-French actress Kirsten Scott-Thomas.

Busson is a friend of CP Pavlos of Greece. His son Flynn is dating Pss. Olympia. RTL Boulevard's Marc van der Linden claims that the Greek and Dutch RF has become even closer these last years. He claims that the members of the two RF's spend time with each other during the summer holidays since the holiday villas of the king and king Constantine are located near each other.

'Nieuwe liefde voor prinses Mabel' - RTL Nieuws

The story seems rather unlikely, considering Busson's previous taste in women. The Dutch RF is not known for their flashy acquaintances either. The last thing the Dutch RF needs is for them to be associated with a flashy twice divorced billionaire playboy who enjoys the jetset life with the top '1%' in London. The King and Queen have been critisized for years about their lifestyle which was/is deemed too flashy.

Not that that should matter if the rumours are true of course; Princess Mabel is free to do whatever she wants and I am sure many will enjoy seeing her happy again.

Since Mabel has been falsely linked to the prime minister and a Dutch-English CEO I suspect these rumours fall into the same category.

I suppose that the obvious 'source' that Gala claims to have would be the ever-blabbering society columnist Taki Theadorocopulos. He wrote about Busson and Kirsten Scott-Thomas in one of his society columns for the Spectator last year and he is a friend of the Greek RF.

Hopefully the rumours are just rumours.
Mr Busson comes across as a butterfly, who is fond of actresses and socialites.

Princess Mabel's future is finacially secure. This week the yearly Quote 500 was presented. This is the list of the 500 richest Dutch people. Mabel was included for the first time, taking spot 149, because the payment company Ayden was included in the stock market and doubled it's worth on the same day. Mabel made at least 43 million euros (but still has many more shares resulting in her high position in Quote - the founders of Ayden ended up much higher in this year's list). Her total wealth is estimated at about 240 million.

Edit: it was hard to find an article in English but this Bloomberg article at least mentions Mabel's expected wealth resulting from the IPO of Ayden in June.

Thank you for this information. Do you know how she made her fortune?

Mabel's Ayden shares

So, in short. Friso most likely stepped in as an early investor in Ayden; resulting in a share a little less than 2% for a fraction of the pricee it's worth now.

Ayden wasn't Friso's only investment: the other tens of millions of her wealth probably come from a combination of other investments, some 'family money' of the royal family - assuming their substantial salaries mainly went to living expenses.

The late Prince was, like with Adyen, a founder-shareholder in WizzAir and in a MRI Centre in Amsterdam. But that he was a founder-shareholder of Adyen was a surprise. So who knows what other investments Friso did for himself and the royal family? Friso worked at Goldman Sachs and at Wolfensohn & Co, so he was a business insider pur sang.
