Love that Mabel is at the conference participating. Definitely something she is passionate about.

He never performed too many duties anyway due to him choosing to have a life of his own and a proper job as we here don't do free-loaders.Only the Monarch,his/her spouse and the former Monarch,i.e. Princess Beatrix,get an apanage,all others work and are either succesfull entrepeneurs or rather succesfull high level EU tops...Like Constantijn.
So, what is the difference between Prince of The Netherlands and Prince of Orange-Nassau? really feel sad about Prince Friso. I hope he can get well soon

Does anyone have a link to the TV interview given by Prince Friso and Mabel just before they got married.
Some very short excerpt has been shown now that he has died; but would love to see whole interview.

I suspect Mabel and the girls will be returning to London soon, if they have not already done so. Most schools in the UK re-open next week after the summer break. It will be sad, but I think returning to their regular routines will help them all start to rebuild their lives. I hope Mabel returns to work later this year. I am sure Princess Beatrix will spend some time with them in London to help them get adjusted. God bless them all.

I do hope so, too. I hope that Mabel can get her job back at The Elders or any job she wants to do. Keeping busy, now is the best thing.

Thanks you so much for that link. I have just watched the full interview, and honestly it is really lovely to see these two people together, and only 9 years ago. Beautiful interview (if you understand Dutch)

How their lives have changed... Friso who is no longer alive and with his family and now Mabel a widow. They could never have imagined the pain to come - thankfully....

Really think they were soul mates!!!
