Felicia is baptised today.

Her godparents were prince Constantijn, prince Floris and Barbara Ruding (a friend of the family).

Maybe because princess Alexia and countess Luana must be baptised before Felicia....

Thanks Royalsa! :)

One more question: Is there anything about the baptism gown worn by Felecia? Is it the same gown worn by her sister and brother, or other historical notes about it?

Thanks for the bigger, watermark-free picture Squidy!

I know that you and Marengo and others were commenting in the previous thread that Lucas looked a little bit like Professor Pieter van Vollenhoven and in this picture I thin there is definitely a resemblance.

I wonder if anyone might have a picture of Professor van Vollenhoven when he was younger as a contrast?

I can see a bit of Pieter in Lucas, but as Wimaamal notes, definately there is a resemblance with Bernhard - the glasses & the hair.

Alexandria, I couldn't find many pics of Pieter when he was young. The official site has a few, but none of when he was Lucas's age.

Yes, that's true! But he looks like Pieter too, I think. :)

For those of you who'd like to see some great footage of this family 'in motion', (forgive me if this's been posted before), but click on this link,

http://www.rtl.nl/actueel/rtlboulevard/video/

and scroll all the way down to where it says : "Maurits en Marilene"

it's a video about this family's visit to a children's theatre play about a mouse, but has some other great footage too. It's only a minute or so. At the end of it, in the theater, a reporter first asks Anna whether she's scared of mice and her answer is 'yes'. After that, they ask little Lucas for his opinion, and his answer is a decided "no". I much recommend this little video, especially since Lucas is soooo very very cute. Photos really don't do him justice!
The video's voice-over also comments on how approachable and friendly Marilene and Maurits are, and they interview a celebrity photographer (paparazzo) who says these two are so friendly and without pretense, other royals/subjects should take a page from these two.
(One little warning though, and that is that this link won't work after it's been posted on rtl's site for over a month I believe. So if you want to watch it, do it within the next weeks!)

That was a great treat of a video Princess Olga! It's great to see the family in action. Thank you for sharing it. I wonder if there is a way to save this video since it will disappear?

And on reading the other posts, I do see what everyone means by Lucas resembling his Uncle Bernhard.

Any time Alexandria! :) yes I was wondering the same thing about the video and its experation date, and looked through the RTL Boulevard site, but they don't seem to have an archive, which is a shame, because from time to time they have great footage of especially the various members of the dutch royal family. As Marengo once pointed out, as far as information goes, RTL's site/program often gets its facts on royals plain wrong, they seem to be very sloppy with fact checking, but all the same, the video footage they come up with is often really good.
