Prince Maurits was admiral of the fleet. So he welcomed all ships with a salute and the crew of the ships shouted 'long live the admiral'.

A clip from earlier in the week:

Prince Maurits launched a new online supermarket on thursday:

Prins Maurits lanceert onlinesupermarkt - Royalty Online

I have no idea why, I thought the RF stayed out of such commercial things. The supermarket uses electronic cars so perhaps that is a link to the prince (as he promotes the use of these cars).

I was wondering the same when seeing those pics at anp..The explanation with the cars sounds like a logical explanation. The idea is to work resource-efficient, see the article below.

HH Princess Marilène will switch jobs as she leaves the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam in August after 11 years in which she,a.o.,initiated the Museum's very successfull Friends organisation.

The Princess will start at the BankGiro Lotery in September in her function as Adviser Partnerships.

The Museum is very sorry to see her go but wish her al the succes!

"Prince Maurits visits the helmstand of the Dutch naval ship 'HNLMS Holland' in Chatham, in Kent, southern Britain, 08 June 2017, as part of the 350 years commemoration of the Battle of Medway on the river Medway near Rochester, Kent, southern England. The Battle of Medway took place in June 1667 when a Dutch fleet sailed up the river Medway and caught the English navy ships off guard resulting in one of the greatest disasters in English naval history.

Probably for Anastasia or Lucas van Vollenhoven? They are around 16/17 now and probably going to university.

500.500,- Euros for 110 square meters??!! That is a price that it would fetch during the crisis. Perhaps the article only states what Pss Marilene paid and not her sister's share? These days you only get something in the outer outskirts for that size & price. From the architecture it looks like the place is actually in Amsterdam-Zuid (area near the Apollolaan maybe?), not a cheap area.

An investment and perhaps a place for studying children seems likely indeed. Lucky neighbours!

To be fair, 110 square metres sounds like a normal appartment to me. A flat in the Bijlmermeer area is more or less the same size. The sum of 500.500 Euros voor just 110 square metres is beyond ridiculous.

Welcome to the Randstad housing market. You pay a lot of money and get sh.t in return.

I know that in the Netherlands it is the custom for Catholics to wear their wedding ring on the left hand and for Protestants to wear them on the right hand, but I notice that Prince Maurits, brought up as Protestant, wears his on his left hand. As his wife and children are Catholics I wonder if he has converted to Catholicism. Does anyone know?
