The van Vollenhovens including all grandchildren + the Orange Nassau's including all Grandchildren. This would be a giant group photo. :lol:
Well, I hope there will be new photos published. Maybe some new portraits.

Any International Royal guesst?

Marengo 01-29-2008 03:10 PM

Nothing has been announced yet. Usually they say 'foreign royal guests' , but this time they did not. So I do not expect there will be any foreign royals.

No,no foreign Royal guests,sorry,the Royals in attendance are on the list,(allthough,there might be guests but as usual due to security reasons they are to be revealed at the exact hour) through the link I posted above + HRH Prince Carlos Hugo de Borbon Parma,former husband of Princess Irene and who always remained a dear and welcome family friend/"member".

These pictures are new, right? There is something odd about them, maybe she looks more frail than usual? Don't know...

Her_Majesty 01-31-2008 08:22 AM

The only thing I say about the new Portraits is: They are GORGEOUS! :flowers:

I love them! The Gala-Portrait is a true winner!
Something very special and unusual. What a great contrast of light and shadows, blue and gold. Impressive.
The gold-blue stage looks great. Bea's dress definitely does NOT belong to my faves.. but it perfectly matches the golden stairs.

I also love the two formal non-Gala-portraits.
I never noticed that Beatrix has really deep blue eyes.

Really great photos!

Queen's birthday dominates front pages

Thursday 31 January 2008
Queen Beatrix's 70th birthday gets widespread coverage in all the media today.
Free newspaper De Pers says that the moaning about the cost of the royal family should stop, quoting economist Harry van Dalen who has worked out that the monarchy generates between €4bn and €5bn a year.
The €114m the public pay for the royals is peanuts in comparison, it says
Read the entire article here.

People are bringing gifts to the Palace, dispite the horrid weather:

In Rotterdam an exhibition was opened in the 'Kunsthal' with the nicest pictures of Queen Beatrix:

Several pictures on the wall
Young Beatrix and a dog
Beatrix at the Bijlmer
In a plane

Beatrix and collegues

The Prime minister congratulating the Queen on television, yesterday. Click here for a picture. Did anybody see him during his congratulations? He announced them almost with a simular tone as he announced the deaths of Queen Juliana and Princes Bernhard and Claus. Sigh...

For those who want to congratulate the Queen, go to this link on the website of the RF and write your message there. After you are done, click on 'bevestigen' (below).

3000 Is a lot already.They will be presented to her on DVD,suppose the most remarkeble ones will be pointed out to her,or otherwise she reads them while baby-sitting,something like that.

Last nights program on her was watched by 2.2 million viewers,the highest score for all programs last night.
