The Skating Princess: Margriet Laps Up 10KM for Charity Fundraiser

Watched on by her family – some of whom took to the ice themselves – Princess Margriet on Saturday skated 10km in the ‘Holland 100’ to help raise money for research and awareness of lymphoma.

The fundraiser is organised by Lymph&Co, which was co-founded by Margriet’s son Prince Bernhard after his own battle with lymphoma a few years ago. Along with his mother, two of Bernhard’s brothers – Princes Maurits and Floris – and his wife Princess Annette also took part in the event.

Princess Margriet raised over 3,000€ for the cause, while Prince Floris brought in 100,000€ in donations.

Participants in the fundraiser cycle for 90km then skate for the remaining 10.
