Princess Laurentien and her father Laurens Jan Brinkhorst attended the premiere of the Dutch movie Mees Kees op Kamp at the Cinemec in Ede today, December 8. Mees Kees on Camp is the sequel of the hit film from 2012 about a teacher who can not read and write.

In addition to that they launched the campaign "Fathers For Reading".


How nice to see Laurentien's father attending and supporting the cause!

Here's a nice additional gallery from yesterday:

Good to see that she continues to read aloud to schoolchildren despite the abandonment of her chairwoman position, she's great at that.

As said: the 27th was the official goodbye of Laurentien as chairwoman of the organisation. In a speech she thanked all the people who were involved with it. The princess said that she had a 'double feeling' during her goodbye. She would have hoped that the organisation would have been absolete after 10 years, but she admits she is not a patient person. The princess stays on as honorary chairwoman of the organisation.

Her husband added: she always finds something to keep her occupied. It will never be quiet.

Laurentien: ik ben nogal ongeduldig - NOS Nieuws

-
I have to say that the princess and the organisation have been rather succesful in putting the issue on the map. Before 2004 most people were barely aware of the issue. In lettingthe princess mainly focus on this issue, illiteracy received so much attention that these days there should barely be anybody around who does not know that it still exists today and in our country.

I wonder if the princess will focus on some new issues in the future or if she will use her time for her own carreer and family.

It is a worthy cause when there is an International Literacy Day.
Reading and writing are a vital part of communication.
