I do understand Your Grace that you don't know who m v/d l is,and i do understand you couldn't nor wouldn't be able to read dutch either.You're forgiven.But a dutch course is mandatory if you would like to know and read all if there's no-one around to fill in the gaps,or puts right what's put wrong without a credible source..
Marc van der Linden doesn't mention anything about this on his website. GDP's royalblog does. But as I said they do not single out the crown prince but mention the entire RF.

Nice to see the RF having fun.

Princess Maxima and Princess Laurentien seems to enjoy the snow the most. I can see from the pics that they have a close relationship.

It's cute to see Ariane wearing Alexia's outfit from last year.

There has been a change at Royalblog since Marc v/d Linden writes for them as well.
Royalblog lost its credibility in many of its articles.Fat chance that M v/d L will mention
that he is totally disliked by the RF.The RF was not grumpy,at all.They were all smiles
for the session and friendly,whatever a insignificant whomever says on them.
Of course I missed out on this inside information But even if it did not happen at this event (last year was bad enough in this matter) W-A is one of the royals whose relationship with the press is quite strained at times (only to mention the incident in Oz - and it's not always the media's fault) - and this case shows that even if he tries to be nice the grumpling image sticks, probably as long as incidents will re-occur when the "true W-A" comes through, like snapping at the media in London a few months ago. But good to hear that everything was rather fun for everybody, there is hope that W-A is the type who will become more relaxed with age.

What a pity that we don't see a picture of mixing the family, f. e. a picture which is showing Eloise playing with her cousins, a picture of Laurentien and Willem-Alexander talking together. They are so "separated". Do you share my opinion?

Is that true?
And if yes, how would that work security-wise?

True.She has both a class and can rely on a private teacher as well if she wants.It is just more fun with a load of kids the same age.
But with cousins Eloise and Claus-Casimir along you already have halve the class.

Security wise?There's a "Palace-boy",Paleisjongen,nearby,maybe two.They're always standing at short distance looking as if they were dropped there by their moms years ago and all they do is just that,standing around...No big deal,they're well protected.Lech is used
to high profile guests,there is security but they are great at hiding it only to pop up out of the blue in case.Don't think anything near the hullabaloo of a white house,we don't have that/need that.It is all very relaxed.

i was thinking about amalia, what other activities does beside the school, at her age i would be normal, ski,, ballet, piano, anything that kids love. kids need to have an activity to be busy and she might have a pasion for something beside to be one day the queen.

Oh she has,she loves ballet,has classes in that too,horses,her friends and "girlie stuff"....

Don't think for a second the children live isolated lives at the Eikenhorst,they don't.At all.And what's
more fun then having friends over for the night with pillow fights and all that?It's there and they're great at it...

Piano's enough around so sooner or later one might take to that,if they want,never because Alexander or Máxima want them to do that,it must be their free choice,as with everything while they're children.Plenty of duties ahead in many decades from now,I hope.

The girls look so lovely! I must say although I knew there would be no talking this time I sort of missed that. I like when they tell us stories about the girls. I suppose they get tired of that though. Understandable.

So Lucien, would you say that there is one body guard per royal or is it less than that?
