Actually that's English schools. Scottish schools have been on holiday since June 29th.

"It was with great sadness that we learned today of the passing of Kofi Annan. We remember his warmth and wisdom. He worked tirelessly for peace, justice and a better life for people all over the world. Kofi Annan had the ability to bring people together. With a voice that resonated with compassion and conviction, he knew how to engage and motivate people. Our thoughts are with his wife and children."

Kofi Annan, President Jimmy Carter, Graça Machel and Princess Mabel

Kofi Annan and Princess Máxima

Kofi Annan and Nane Maria Wallenberg at Queen Beatrix' farewell banquet in 2013

Kofi Annan and Nane Maria Wallenberg at the Investiture of King Willem-Alexander in 2013

Kofi Annan and Nane Maria Wallenberg at the Memorial Service for the late Prince Friso in 2013

Kofi Annan and the King at the 4th centenary (!) of the firm Royal Vopak in 2016

I didn't realise there were three royal dogs! I'm guessing that Skipper is one of the puppies they kept from the litter that they were giving away?
Gorgeous pups!

Queen Maxima cancel her visit to Tanzania on 6-7 November because of health problems:

"Her Majesty Queen Máxima has to rest on doctor's advice in the coming period. Due to health complaints, there is a suspicion that she has an intestinal infection. Further tests must confirm this diagnosis. As a result, she will cancell her planned trip to Tanzania, which she will undertake on 6 and 7 November a.s. as a special advocate of the Secretary-General of the United Nations for inclusive financing for development."

Dutch media nu.nl reports that Q.Maxima is described a period of rest, due to what is probably a bowel infection

Luna is the puppy, Nala her mom. Skipper has been around for quite some time (his first photo call was in 2013; but he had been around for some time before his first inclusion in a photo call). Nala was added in 2014 (showed up for the first time on the 2014 christmas card).

Hopefully they'll know woon what is going on. She still attended her engagement today but doesn't have anything official scheduled until late November.

That sounds unpleasant, and it’s unfortunate she’ll miss the trip. Wishing her a speedy recovery!

I'm trying to figure out why I'm not warming up to this photo. Individually, all the portraits are very good: good color, flattering in a realistic way, good lighting. But there's something about the way they are lined that is unsettling to me, as if they aren't individuals, but replicants or something.

Only at the start of the Christmas Address, a camera flies over the palace cour and captures an illuminated tree outside. It is kind of strange because the annual Christmas exhibitions at Het Loo Palace show the Orange-Nassaus love Christmas decorations.

It is actually an old tradition to place royals en profile without looking to each other or looking away from the camera. From the first portrait photos on, this was a frequently used setting. I like it. It is different from the usual summer and winter photos. An injection of glamour. Very Olaf.
