Exactly, it should have applied to Margriet and Pieter as well but they made an exception (at that point prince Margriet was still second-degree, she only became third degree in 2013 as you noted as well). So, I wouldn't consider it retroactively applied to all existing situations; because otherwise the same would apply to Constantijn who was also already a member of the royal house but he will be stripped of membership at some point in the future (unless Amalia becomes queen after his passing).

Yes, Prince Constantijn was born as a member of the Royal House and - in my eyes - falls under the not-retroactive effect of the new Royal House Act 2002. With other words: like his aunt Princess Margriet, he will remain a member of the Royal House until his niece Queen Catharina-Amalia abdicates in favour of the next generation. Practically said: Constantijn will remain HRH Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands, Prince of Orange-Nassau, for the rest of his life.

His aunt Princess Margriet is popular, well liked, approachable, but like her sister Princess Beatrix you will never see her in infotainment shows like DWDD, Jinek or Op1. Out of the question. Still this distance did not affect her popularity at all. I wished Prince Constantijn and Princess Laurentien would keep that wise distance as well.

Of course the rest of the extended royal family, like Maurits van Oranje-Nassau, van Vollenhoven or Jaime de Bourbon de Parme or Irene van Lippe-Biesterfeld... Allez... They are furtherer away from the King and there is no ministerial responsibility for their words ans actions.

King Willem-Alexander has recorded a video message for the postponed presentation of the Four Freedoms Awards 2020 today:

Five awards are awarded each year to "organizations and individuals who have made a substantial, courageous and personal contribution to freedom in the world". This year the awards go to "Maria Ressa from the Philippines, Religions for Peace International, Sander de Kramer from the Netherlands and Leoluco Orlando from Italy respectively. United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres receives the International Four Freedoms Award for the United Nations".

I wonder what kind of celebration that would be as theatres are still closed under the current Covid-19 measures... They were supposed to reopen at May 11 (so yesterday) but last 1 1/2 weeks ago it was announced that that would be postponed by a week to May 18!

Assuming this could somehow be characterized as part of 'art and culture-exercises allowed inside' (examples are 'music schools'; max of 30 persons per enclosed area); opening of cultural institutions (such as Theatre Carré) isn't planned until late May at the earliest.

So, really strange (and could easily have been postponed by a week, I would think) and could lead to another outcry of them ignoring the regulations.

Princess Beatrix looks so short in comparison to her grand daughters! Lovely to see them all, and dressed up.

But like Somebody I was surprised that they went ahead with this event while the theatres are still closed. After the Greek debacle one would expect them to be extra careful. Not that I personally have any problems with the concert. On the contrary, I am glad they pay attention to the cultural sector, while the government is not.

Amalia will start her final exams on Monday - at King's day she mentioned that she will have little time for a big(ger) celebration as she will be studying. In addition, tomorrow starts a 4-day weekend because of Ascension day in the Netherlands, so I guess that's why they picked tonight.

Apparently, the show in Carré was also a 'tv recording' of a special 'tv program' featuring queen Máxima's music initiative - she is touring the Netherlands this week as well to see how the initiative started at her 40th birthday (More Music in the Classroom) is coming along. So, I guess that's how they justify the queen's pre-birthday concert.

All was very safe,everyone tested and or was already vaccinated...OK...!
So no, I am not surprised at all.

Might be a nice sign for cultural life in NL....but being with a handfull at safe distance is hardly cosy and or fun,let alone a gala..But then ofcourse they had to highlight the work by Maxima for ,a.o. the very succesfull Music in the Clasroom project.

It shouldnt be special,I recall having music lessons started at elementary school,a weekly event for us kids...But then subsequent governments thought it not of that much importance,and less to no attention was given...as was the case with the rest of the dutch educational system...Kids know not halve what we had to know in our days,without multiple choice things...we HAD to know,or...not- and without any iPhone,tablet or device that looks it all up for you,the lazy generation thing.....

So glad music is back at school.

The Government follows the ` lead` by the infamous RIVM If they would hurry more and more accurate with the vaccination program,if one can call it that....Everything could be open again already,vaccination should be mandatory too,not a personal choice,no vaccination...no dice,so I am looking forward to a Vaccination Passport for cultural events,travels and real Royal Gala´s alike.

The concert will be aired on sunday evening on NPO1.

They didnt,it was just a highlight for television on her work for Music in the Classroom.They did an interview,
a long interview with her and Matthijs van Nieuwkerk too on May 7th about Life,Love and Work,to be aired
monday the 17th,the actual date of her 50th birthday.

It is said to be a very deep interview,I think in the same category as HM interview with Wilfried de Jong on his 50th birthday.Something to really look forward to!!

Interestingly, the government has decided NOT to attend due to the controversy around this race. Nonetheless, the king (and it seems tomorrow also the queen) do attend?!
