Yesterday Prince Constantijn was a guest in the daily talk show 'Op1' on NPO1. He was there to talk about Prince Claus -whose 95th birthday it would have been- and about the 25th anniversary of the Prince Claus Fund. He was asked some questions about his father. He said his father could be a complicated man.

Prince Constantijn with Eloise in the series online 'In conversation with?'

"Royally fooled by @constantine14 (see picture). Last night I was allowed to look back on the teaching days of Constantijn and his daughter Eloise van Oranje for my series 'in conversation with'. And how special that was!"

I really liked this one. They got various questions about their school time and had to write down their answers at the same time but independently.

Questions and answers:
1. Characterize Eloïse's school time in one word.
C: Friends
E: Chaos

2. Worst thing that Eloïse did at school?
C: Smoking (later on he explains that they didn't make this issue into a parent-child fight. They made sure their children know that they think it is a stupid decision to smoke but also that if they want to be 'weak' and hurt their own health, it is up to them)
E: Skip classes

3. What subject would Constantijn give if he were a teacher?
C: History (starts explaining why history is important to understand today's world)
E: History (he is really passionate about it and a great (history) story teller)

4. When/How Constantijn would help Eloïse at school?
C: I tried to help but...
E: When everything had broken down completely.

5. Constantijn was during Eloïse's school time the most proud of Eloïse when...
C: Move to The Hague
E: 1. Move to The Hague; 2. When she graduated from VWO.

Next, some open questions:
Education for me means: 'gaining knowledge' (E)
What would you change: 'later selection and put teacher at the center' (C); 'cut irrelevant stuff and listen more to the pupils' (E)
In the back of at the front of the classroom: 'in the back' (E & C) - both agreed that nowadays they would move more to the front because sitting in the back doesn't make sense in hindsight.

Finally, if I would have to reveal a secret (that my father/daughter doesn't know about) it would be...
C: in third grade (secondary school - so about 14 years) we put drawing pins on a girl's chair. [Eloïse's respons is one of disbelief - she clearly didn't know about it] And yes, Constantijn and his friends were punished for it...

A documentary done for Pr Constantijn´s 50th birthday
("Constantine, more than a Prince")

Quote:

We saw a modern and comfortable house in the very middle of a neighbourhood, be it a big and monumental one. It was strange to see an Audi from the Court picking up the royals in a totally normal neighbourhood street, with bicycling moms passing by, while an uniformed chauffeur saluted them.

It was mind-boggling to see the Prince in jeans, in a blue Mini, queuing in a supermarket and later, dressed in jacquet, waving to thousands cheering to him during the ceremonial procession at Prinsjesdag, seated in a horse-drawn gala berline. During the whole interview the Prince, sorry, "Constantijn", played down every royal aspect. As if it is just some nuisance so now an then, but comes handy in other situations.

It made me realize that every year 100 million Euro is spent on a royal lifestyle that really no one seems to pursue, after all even the King did perfectly fine just living in a private villa. I am not sure what to think. If the message is: "royals" are just the folks-next-door, then the documentary did hit bull's eye. But it also pops up the question. 400 men and women working in the royal household? For whom????? It must be the most swollen overhead on any organisation in the Netherlands. That is the confusion the documentary caused to me.
