I think they will follow soon. It is Sunday and then the Royal Household does not work.
Usually you can download a big High Resilution picture from the royal website.
ANP seems a bit premature with these pics I think, a violation of the embargo.
Anyway, I like it how Amalia is so changed and so playing with The Majesty....

The Prince's gardrobe, the eye of the photographer: the mise-en-scene

Picture 1

We often look to the ladies' garderobes only, but have attention for the Prince's outfit too, please.

We almost never see him wearing brown shoes, but he has a brown tie, brown pocket, brown socks and brown shoes. Very well dressed. And you know what? It matches very well with his namesake Alexia, wearing a brown dress!

We often forget it, but since he married Princess Máxima, I also find the Prince more 'Italian' dressed.
I think the suit-wearers amongst us will know that 'Italian' means: better tailored suits and less powerdressing.



Also have attention for the mise-en-scene of the picture: besides the Prince and Princess Alexia in brown, you see there is a glass vase with fuchsia-coloured flowers at the other side. And it matches remarkably well with Princess Catharina-Amalia's fuchsia vest.....

It is really a carefully composed picture. Wonderful. Also with the playing fountain and the green trees on the background.

But the focus of all... is The Lady In Red....

Thanks Henri for the pictures! It was so exciting to see Queen Beatrix with Willem, Maxima and the three little princesses! I hope many more pictures will follow. And yes, Henri, Willem was well dressed and matched Alexia perfectly.

Please Maxima at least once brush your hair. (Don´t misunderstand me posters, I think Maxima is one of the nicest crownprincesses in the world with her wonderful enthusiastic smile, but her hair.....)

Yes, it must have been the Prince's private villa De Eikenhorst indeed: see the arrow on this picture, that must have been the wall on which the Queen and the Oranges have been seated. The picture is made in January 2004. In the meantime all is green and blooming and blossoming. Here is an aerial picture.

They are lovely but i wish we could see Ariane better. I love how Amalia is leaning into Queen Beatrix it is so sweet. Alexia is gorgeous she always looks annoyed to see the camera

Special site to mark the 40th birthday of HRH The Prince of Orange

The Royal House has launched a special website, which will extend in the coming period.

See this link.

Hopefully an English translation will follow soon.

Question

I have a question for a native speaker of Dutch. On the link that Henri provided to the Prince's web site there is a section called Felicitatieregister. What does it mean is this a place where I can send a birthday message or something else? Also if it is a place where I can send a message can I write in English or would that be frowned upon? I hate not knowing the language.

This is a congratulations book, so to speak. Yes, you may wish him a happy birthday here. And yes, you certainly may write in english. The dutch are a very open people, and accept pretty much anyone and everything within reason, and know that unless you were born in or lived in, or have ties to the Dutch, you will not speak the language. I am sure that they will be thrilled to recieve congratulation in any language.

There was also a "felicitatie register" for the birth of each of the princesses, and people wrote in English, French, Dutch, Spanish and any number of other languages!

Felicitatie register

The Dutch verb feliciteren comes from the latin word felicitatem (nom. felicitas) which means "wishing happiness".
This is a derivation from felix (gen. felicis) "happy, fortunate"

The Dutch expression 'hartelijk gefeliciteerd!' means: '(my) heartfelt wishes for (your) happiness!'



So the word felicitatie register means: 'registry with wishes for happiness'

Yes, it was a success, I sent my birthday wishes to the prince. Although I must admit I needed a little help from a translator at dictionary.com
