I was working at the IOC session. The thing is the floor was very secure and no one without a pass could enter. The Royals were surrounded by some security but you could walk up to them and stand next to them without a problem. The thing is most people here do not follow royal families that much so a lot of the local people did not know who he was. So that was good for me!

great, can't wait to see him in the Holland Heineken House, where hopefully this time a femela ice skater will be as enthausiastic as swimmer Inge de Bruin during the summer Olympics...I can imagine the german boulevard magazines already!

You know, I was thinking exactly the same, a couple of days ago. :rolleyes:
But it will be wonderful to see him in the Holland Heineken House, we Dutch do surely know how to throw a good party. :p Just let's hope that some of our skaters will win some gold medals at the Olympics (though I highly doubt it, they're not in shape...yet). It would be funny to see W-A jumping around again. The prince is such a sports enthusiastic, I think it's really great!

Actually, the photos just showed Olympic Joy. The mess :rolleyes: was caused by those german boulevard magazines and increased by every tabloid in the world :( :mad:

But it would be nice if this time if he appears enjoying the triumph of Dutch athletes with Maxima :) !. Is she joining him in Torino this time?

Thanks in advance.

purple_platinum 01-29-2006 01:15 PM

It was only announced that WA is going.
i suppose with 2 princesses to take care, it would be hard to travel, especially if Maxima already have other engagements to attend.
but, yes, it would be great to see maxima there with her husband...

Marengo 02-07-2006 02:30 PM

On RTL-Boulevard it was said that the Prince of Orange already left for Turin, to attend the IOC meeting.

Interview
Kroonprins dubt over zijn olympische bijbaan
Van onze verslaggever John Volkers

TURIJN - Prins Willem-Alexander werd in 1998 in een kleine storm van publicitair geweld gekozen in het Internationaal Olympisch Comité. De toekomstige koning heeft nog niet besloten zich in 2007 opnieuw te kandideren.

Prins Willem-Alexander, sinds 1998 lid van het Internationaal Olympisch Comité (IOC), heeft nog niet besloten of hij zich volgend jaar opnieuw zal kandideren voor de in sportkringen zeer begeerde post. ‘Dat is de grote vraag’, zei hij gisteren in Turijn.
Er ligt ten eerste de afspraak met de regering dat hij op het moment dat hij de troon bestijgt zijn nevenfuncties neerlegt. Een nieuwe termijn van acht jaar zal hij als toekomstige koning – Beatrix is 68 – niet kunnen volmaken. Over die implicatie liet de kroonprins zich echter niet uit.

dutch royal 03-17-2006 04:03 AM

Translation:
Prince Willem alexander was chosen in 1998 in a little storm of publicity violence in to the IOC. The future king has not decided jet if he is going to be a candidate for the in sportcircles very desirable job in 2007.

"Thats the big question" he said in Torino.

First of all there is a agreement with te gouverment that if he is going to be king, he has to lay all his other activitys beside him. He will not beable to fulfil A new term of 8 years , His mother beatrix is 68 years old.
About those implications , the prince did not respont to that.


Hopefully all englisch speaking and reading forum members can read my translation about Prince Willem alexander in Torino.

The Prince of Orange withdrew from the IOC commission of evaluation for the 2014 olympic wintergames. After he accepted the chairmanship of the UN-comittee for water and clean sanitation it became clear that he can not combine this with the IOC commission.
