Nice to see the older Van Vollenhoven grandchildren again. I am sure the Amsterdam-based part of the family will be checking their phones non-stop during the party to check the football match of Ajax.

A pity that princess Christina could not make it, I hope her illness is not the reason.

It seems that the Duchess of Parma was the only niece (in-law) who was able to attend. The King and Queen are on vacation in Greece at the moment as the school holiday is still going on. On Friday the Royal Airforce -with approval of the king and the minister of Defence - promoted Pieter to a a titular Commodore.

According to the press the Orange-family has a 'big surprise' in store for Pieter during the party, but as it goes with surprises they keep a secret.

Great to see most of the Van Vollenhoven family. Although I do wonder why Benjamin, Emma and Pieter did not attend as they are all older than Eliane who was present. Only Willem Jan's absence makes sense to me given his age.

In addition a large number of former politicians and some other somewhat famous Dutch people turned up for Pieter's birthday party

Several members of the family attended a special performance of the Natuur College at the Theater Carre in Amsterdam this evening, September 16. The organization, founded by Princess Irene, brings an ode to nature in the context of her 80th birthday.

Lovely photos! Imo, the Dutch men all look most handsome with facial here. Prince Constantijn looked very handsome here!

Lovely that all the four children of Pss Irene came, with partners. Two of them live abroad. I see that one of the attendees was Martine van Loon-Labouchère, former Grand Mistress of the court.

Thumbs up

Prince Bernhard and Princess Annette take the bike.
That's how I like to see it.


(They are right. Is also the easiest way of transport when you live in Amsterdam)

Yes that was funny. They live on the Weteringschans, which is only 5 minutes away or so. It will take longer by car.

Nice that Princess Irene posed with her two daughters on the way out.

Nice to see Maxima and Mabel at an engagement together, though they didn't seem to be talking much with one another, unless they were at different parts of the event.

The windmill association must be a very special patronage to Princess Beatrix. Her husband used to be patron of it and after his death it was the late prince Friso who took over the patronage.

How wonderful they attend this activity together. It's always special when (especially the older) royal siblings do an event together.
