It will be the first official trip of these characteristics of the Princess of Orange. It is good to see that the Princess of Orange is starting to integrate the agenda of the Royal House.

A visit to ALL 6 'Dutch' islands is rather unusual but indeed a very good opportunity for the Princess of Orange to get to known the Caribbean part of the kingdom.

Note that the words 'wordt begeleid' in Dutch in this context are to be read as 'are accompanied' instead of 'is supervised'. The Dutch royal couple doesn't need 'supervision' but of course it makes sense that the secretary of state (one level below a minister) of Kingdom relationships will accompany them on this trip.

No,not unusual at all!!His parents took Alexander with them on the same tour,all 6 islands...and Prince Claus taught Alexander what sweet patatoes are and when best to plant them...he was the agricultural expert with a load of ezxperience in Africa as a child...No no,it will be great as a welcome tour to the Caribbean part of the country.They will love her,the dushi´s will sworm her

Friends of mine were on the same tour at the same time,but arriving on each island a day earlyer then the Royals...On St.Maarten Queen Beatrix noticed my friends again...and,an adjutant came and asked in the most friendly manner if they were following the Royals,and they answereed..Well no,you are following us!..The party had a laugh...

I like that in Bonaire the primary school children will perform with their learning orchestra. It is excellent when children show an interest to learn music.

The program seems not complete!

I am sure they will visit the Netto Bar in Otrabanda,Willemstad Curacao...!

The place is packed with photographs and autographs of the Dutch Royal Family ever since the late Prince Bernhard
set foot in it,and since then an `Orange` never fails to visit and have a glass of green rum!
All of them visited whenever each was in town,they still do.

I am really excited to follow this tour! And the Dutch comms team is excellent on Instagram so I know we are in for a treat! I really like how they are introducing Amalia to her duties.

The RVD told ANP that the trip of Pss Amalia and her absence from University has been arranged 'in goed overleg' (in good consultation?) with the University of Amsterdam.

Alexandra van Huffelen, State Secretary for Kingdom Relations, spoke about the visit today at radio1. She will accompany the royal party for the entire two weeks. Van Huffelen said that she hoped that Princess Amalia will be able to meet a lot of young people, officials and inhabitants of the islands in general. She added that a first official trip must be impressive to participate in for the princess.

Van H, said that she expected that various theses such as slavery, inflation, living conditions and nature preservation will be highlighted. She hopes that people will be able to speak with their hearts. It will enable the crown princess to learn all various aspects of the islands.

Looking forward to the visit. It will be interesting to see how Amalia experiences her first multi-day visit.

They also provided a map to explain that the Kingdom of the Netherlands includes 4 countries.

I would not have greeted the welcome party with sunglasses on. But okay, the arrival still is no official start of the visit.

I was about to say their outfits seem not formal enough, good to know it's not official part of the program.

Are we likely to hear Amalia speaking English on this trip? Does one of the islands speak English? Or am I misremembering?
