WA at the Sofitel Hotel in Hanoi with children of Dutchmen who work and live in Hanoi. The prince pays a working visit to Vietnam and China from October 10th to the 21st. With these visits , focussed on water management in both countries , he gives meaning to his patronage of the Global Water Partnership.

Lovely pictures Miss Helen. Thank you.:)

I especially like this picture ... Are there any communist symbols that have been left out?:rolleyes: I think they have most of them represented here.

Seems a bit tacky to have wine when you're at an event with so many children....

This was a reception where their parents were also present & drinking wine. Frthermore it is awfully rude to refuse. The Queen never refuses anything but instead takes a small bite/sip if she doesn't like it.

Its such a pity that i'm studying in Australia so i can not be in Vietnam to get to see Prince WA.:(
Actually the yellow star is the symbol of Vietnam, Squidgy,its on our flag, the other one represent for the Communist Party.

Are you from Vietnam too?
Me too, although i was born here in the Netherlands. There is absolutely some communism left there, especially if it comes to the political system, but there is a free market thing there going on. I could see some very big changes when i spended my summer over there. Nice country with a big pour class and a very small rich class, such a pity.

why? as long as there is a separate tray of orange juice or something for them so they don't have to be thirsty.

the grownups can have their wine with no harmful effect on the children.

I'm sorry HMQueenElizabethII,:) to me the star looked reddish in colour, so I assumed it was supposed to be the red star that is sometimes used as a symbol for communism. I didn't mean to offend with my remark - I just thought the picture had so much symbolism in it! It was striking!

Yes, too bad you couldn't be in Vietnam to see the Prince - maybe next time!:)

Prince Willem-Alexander attracts many locals. The prince takes a look at the Vietnamese-Dutch Integrated Coastal Zone Management project. Pictures from DPA.

I really like it how the prince and the princess split up their duties so that their children won't be alone for a long time, just like any other modern family these days!
