In Geneva the princess was interviewed by RTL Boulevard. The royalty reported commented how the princess is a silent force of the RF. She works hard, no scandals and she is easy to get access to etc etc etc. Well deserved praise IMHO.

In the interview the princess highlighter very to the point what the red cross was doing and what the main issues are at the moment: Haiti and Pakistan (where the winter started).

The 3FM glass house // serious request raises money for good causes, this year AIDS orphens. Now people do all kinds of original things to raise money. The princess was asked if she could do something, and she offered to be a tour guide in Palace het Loo for a group of 4 people.

According to royalblog.nl, the offer is popular. For now the highest bid is 4250 Euros.

Prof. Pieter was a guest in the talk show 'Pauw & Witteman' last night, the main topic being his leaving the council for national safety. Ity is nice to see how Pieter has become more respected lately.

In a special television documentairy this weekend (also about him retiring) there was an interview with his wife too. Princess Margriet told the story that she recently visited a school, and when she left she overheard some school children saying: who is she? 'the wife of Van Vollenhoven'.
