Thanks for the pictures.
Prince Constantijn has a lovely family, the children are growing up quite fast. The pictures of the children with their parents are really pretty.

Princess Laurentien attended the hand-out of the von de Gablentz Prize to german politician Rita Süsmuth,
former president of the Bundestag,the German parliament.

Otto von der Gablentz was a german diplomat who became german ambassador to The Netherlands in 1980 IIRC and stayed for 7 years.
He almost instantly moved us all,firstly be the fact he had made the effort to speak excellent Dutch,second,because of his open and new approach of the recent past,ie,the WWII and the nazi occupation between 1940 and 1945.The man was generally liked and highly respected.Not just for the dutch,but also for the Royal Family he became a familiar face and a dear warm friend.
After his term in The Netherlands he was the german ambassador to Israel and then to Russia,not the easyest posts.

After his retirement he and his wife settled to live here in Amsterdam.
He sadly passed away after a long illness in 2007.Greatly missed man in many a heart and mind.

Prince Constantijn & Princess Laurentien

You have reason Patra. It's an important role that is playing Princess Laurentien; to be a member of a Royal Family, giving the royal touch to the event, being so involucrated with the causes like she is, and being mother and wife. It's not easy to be the princess after the future queen and her sisters.
Laurentien enjoy her family life and love her country. She is an example of how to be a part of a royal team.
It would be nice if she dresses more regal.

I love the setting the photographer used. Very relaxed, and the shading is wonderful. Although, I do have to say, the finished photos are not flattering for Laurentien, you can see every wrinkle she's got. I know that she has them, but let's try and photoshop some of those out next time.

I too was really surprised how aged Princess Laurentien looked in the book photos, especially around her eyes. Her fashion these last couple of weeks is pretty good. She seems like such a great person, what a warm smile!

They're very relaxed and casual "portraits". I do like Laurentein's hairstyle, it suits her.

Literacy really is ALL of our concern, a very ambitious speech by the Princess. My only wish is that there was video of the speech! Thanks for posting the text to it, who is the speech writer?
