From Reformatorisch Dagblad:

This summer Prince Constantijn, Princess Laurentien and their children will move from Brussels to The Hague. The reason for the move is that the couple are increasingly working in the Netherlands. This was informed by the Government Information Agency (RVD) on Thursday. The move will take place this summer so that the children of Prince Constantijn and Princess Laurentien can start at the new school at the beginning of the new school year. The couple have three children: Countess Eloïse (2002), Count Claus-Casimir (2004) and Countess Leonore (2006).

Since March 1st 2015 Prince Constantijn is no longer in the service of the European Commission. However, the Prince remains part-time available as special advisor to the commission in the field of "Internet governance", drawing up rules for the Internet. In the Netherlands the Prince supports Startup Delta, an initiative to strengthen the business climate for start-ups in the Netherlands and attract foreign buyers.

Princess Laurentien continues her work, including being advisor to the port of Rotterdam and as director of the Missing Chapter Foundation, which engages in the minds of children and adults about sustainability and the future of the earth. The Princess also remains committed to tackling illiteracy, both in the Netherlands and internationally, including as honorary chairman of Reading and Writing Foundation and as a special envoy of the UN cultural agency UNESCO.

I wonder where the Prince and his family will live. A while ago it was in the news that the Prince has rented a pied-à-terre in The Hague. Huis ten Bosch is under restoration/modernization and that means the guests' appartments and/or the annex where the Prince has his appartment (one of the houses in the palace park, I thought) is not available during the works.

But now the Prince and his family are going to reside in The Hague permanently, maybe they will become the new residents of Villa Eikenhorst at the royal domain De Horsten in Wassenaar? That villa is now in use by the King but in a couple of years he will move to a splendidly restored 17th C Huis ten Bosch.

Could be, but I think they would want a (semi-)permanent home sooner then a few years from now.

Princess Laurentien -who seems to have trouble with her voice- gave an interview to the Flemish VTM Royalty. She spoke for half an hour wit VTM and were only allowed to ask 6 questions.

She talked about Brussels, where she has lived for 20 years and which she calls her second home. She says she knows all the small streets and lived on many different locations, which helped her to get to know the cit very well. She always felt very welcome.

She says she doesn't want to call herself an expert about Belgian live, but notices that Belgians love life, good food. It is a small and special country ith a big personality.


She talked about the two initiatives that won the Princess Margriet award and calls them brave. She has been president of the ECF for 8 years now. She emphasized the importance of culture.

In my opinion the opening of a new wing for the prestigious Max Planck Institute deserved a lady looking like a Princess of the Netherlands and not dressed like a Kindergarten teacher...



The Princess is going to her fifties now. She looks fantastic, athletic and youthful, but oh boy... these clothes are great for an afternoon with the kids in an amusement park, not for an official opening. A bit more decorum would not harm Her Royal Highness. My humble opinion.

June 23, 2015 - Princess Laurentien paste the sticker first temperature during the launch of the platform Optimaal.nl by Lidl, to battle against food waste. The sticker serves as a reminder to turn the refrigerator 4 degrees, the optimum temperature to preserve food.
