The picture is taken at the home of TH Prince Bernhard and Princess Annette here in Amsterdam.

In fact,I think we here all are most fortunate to be where we are instead of anywhere else at all.

Thanks for the information Lucien. The children in the nursery where I am on placement are also filling shoe boxes to send to those less fortunate than ourselves

I really like the idea of involving children in projects such as this one. When they learn to care about others at a young age, it leaves a lasting impression. I really think that it is very sweet that they did this with their grandmother.

Prof.mr.Pieter van Vollenhoven attended the Memorial Concert " On the Air" at the Worlds Forum Theater,The Hague on tuesday the 28th.

The concert,organised by the Committee Last Post Netherlands 1940 - 1945 in cooperation with the Veterans Institute and Checkpoint Magazine,
is a salute to the pilots and crew that died in the airwar over the skies of The Netherlands and our East Indies,present day Indonesia.

The concert was performed by the orchestra of the Royal Dutch Airforce.

HRH is attending the meeting of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Foundations at Geneva.

HRH is a Member of the Board of the IFRC and Vice-Chair of the Dutch Red Cross.She used to work as a nurse for the Red Cross
when she was young-er,and lost her heart to the organisation since.

Were they ever accompanied by any other son & daughter-in-law than Prince Maurits & Princess Marilene? I believe they attended the Stuyvesant Ball several times.

All the sons,and spouses except Princess Anita,have attended the Ball with their parents.
Actually,they showed some pics at tonights Blauw Bloed,with Floris & Aimée,Bernhard and Annette at the Stuyvesant Ball.
Ofcourse Anita won't attend this year,that would be something of a circus-act in her case at the moment.

Well I don't think Anita will be there this year. She will not be allowed to fly!
She will have her second child at the end of this month.

Maybe this time, they will all go together Three sons, three daughters in law and The princess with Prof.mr. Pieter van Vollenhoven.
That would be nice!
