Radio Netherlands reports that Princess Mabel will continue part-time as a senior advisor with the organisation. Archbishop Desmound Tutu said that the Princess’s resignation was a “great loss” for the organisation, which works to tackle peace and human rights initiatives.

    Duty is commendable and she has carried on for as long as she felt able there are others who will fill the gap. Her first desire is to be with her husband who needs her more at this moment.he should be allowed this time.
