Another royal gives up company job

Princess Laurentien has become the third member of the royal family this year to give up a job with a major private sector company.

The wife of Prince Constantijn stopped working with international public relations and communications firm Weber Shandwick in London as of 1 May. The national information service RVD said she wants more control over her time and to work more from the Netherlands as an independent public relations advisor.

Her husband left his position at strategic management and technology consulting firm Booz Allen & Hamilton in January, reportedly to devote more time to non-commercial activities. And his older bother, Prince Johan Friso has resigned from a post with London bank Goldman Sachs.

Hi Paulette!

Prince Constantijn and Princess Laurentien were living in London but I believe they have moved back to the Netherlands now to help the Queen with royal duties or something to that effect. Princess Laurentien has left her job, too.

I don't know, but I'm expecting them to make an announcment for 2004. In the pre-wedding interview Laurentien and Constantijn said they wanted three children. Laurentien will be 37 next year, I believe, so if she's planning on having three children it would be wise to have them as soon as possible.

Tis nice to see some royal making an effort to help some people that might really need the help. :flower: We need to see more of this. But of course I've heard the DRF might have some real power behind world powers, so they can probably do or not do anything they please. :innocent:

Julia 09-19-2003 04:12 PM

First, congratulations to Constantijn and Laurentien! :clap: How wonderful! Queen Beatrix will have 2 grandbabies in 2004!

Secondly: thissal, could you elaborate on the DRF having real power over world powers? This would be fascinating to read about!

Ooh, hard question you ask. You won't read about it in any one place, but it's putting various sources I remember together, and I don't remember the details, or spelling. So I'll just give you a vague outline of sources to check. Have you heard of the Bilderberg (sp?) group? They operate along side of the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) based in the US, equivalent to a similar group (Round table?) in Britain -- they are behind the Rhodes Scholars. So this group of world bankers that hold the notes on much of the debt for the world powers was started by the Rothchilds and includes the Rockefellars in the US. They were responsible for getting the Federal Reserve scam passed in the USA, which had the final result of putting the US deep into debt. It's also known they financed the Russian revolution and financed both sides of the Vietnam War.

Up until 10 years ago at least, (last time I followed this) the current core of this most powerful organization in the world would meet every year on Jeyll Island off the coast of Georgia to decide worldwide economic strategies. Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands was the host of this annual meeting. Many call Alan Greenspan one of the most powerful people in the world, but he's believed to be a mere puppet of this group.

If you're interested the best source of information might be a book (can't remember name) written by Prof. Carroll Quigley of Harvard, Princeton and Georgetown Universities. This was also the man that former President Clinton referred to as his mentor. Prof. Quigley's knew personally and wrote his book disclosing the plan by international bankers to control the world from behind the political and financial scenes. Although Quigley personally approved of their methods and aims, others seeing this same information saw it as plans by the super-rich to establish dictatorships disguised as workers' democracies.

THE UNSEEN HAND, by Epperson, a MUST READ.

It gives the beginner alot of basics of what Thissal is mentioning. The DRF own the
majority shares of ROYAL DUTCH SHELL and the offshoot-ADRs Shell Oil co.

it's all there is anyone cares to LOOK. Never put your faith all in one man.
For surely you will be disappointed. I learned that from a Professor of
History when I was 18!

wow, I can still recall it...Guess I'm not that far gone yet!
Ha ha.

Hmmm? I wonder how this might apply to women and marriage? :lol:

Here's a link on the Bilderberg conferences:

https://www.bilderberg.org/2002.htm

Bilderberg Conference 2002 Chantilly, Virginia, U.S.A., 30 May-2 June

Thought for the year: The Bilderberg secretariat in Leiden, Holland says these are 'private meetings'. If so, why do state intelligence agencies provide their security? Are our security services moonlighting? Bilderberg can't have it both ways.

Laurentien introduced either Willem to Maxima or Constantijn to Mabel, didn't she? I think that she and one of these ladies were friends prior to both marrying into the Dutch royal family.

I&#39;m not sure how Laurentien&#39;s pronounced..I thought it was

Lau-REN-tien sounding like LauRENshien but I guess not...how would the Dutch pronounce it? The French way would be Laurentien with a hard "t" sound...

Last Sunday the 9th May it was Mothersday in the Netherlands. Constantijn, Laurentien and their children Elois and Claus-Casimir spent this day with Queen Beatrix on the boat the Groene Draeck. So Beatrix wasn&#39;t alone this day although Friso was on honeymoon and Alexander in Argentina. There are lovely photo&#39;s of Constantijn&#39;s happy family on the boat published in Story and Prive. The photo&#39;s are taken by Remi van Maren and I think they also will be published on Smuldersfotos.com. It was also a goodbey to Beatrix because Laurentien and Constantijn are moving out Huis den Bosch to Brussels where their children can live a relatively normal live out of the spotlights. It has been told that they moved to Brussels because of the safety of the family, but I didn&#39;t think that this is the reason. From Brussels it is easier to help with offical tasks now that they became the second royal couple (because Friso isn&#39;t a member of the Royal House after his marriage with Mabel). It is also been told that Friso and Mabel will move in Constantijn&#39;s house in London.

I was thinking that maybe because Laurentien is likely still nursing that it might&#39;ve been uncomfortable to wear a bra? And no offence to bra makers, but bras made for nursing women aren&#39;t exactly accomodating with evening wear. But I&#39;m not sure if that is really the reason why she didn&#39;t wear a bra. More my own musings.

moosey60 05-17-2004 10:19 PM

Uhhh...I just thought that the top was just exceedingly "saggy". I dunno...I didn&#39;t like her outfit. She&#39;s beautiful and her tiara was really nice but her outfit...gah&#33; What was with that dress? At first I thought it was a winter jacket that was cut up and sewn into a dress...and that top...gah&#33; I&#39;m sorry but that "saggy" look was not attractive. However, I didn&#39;t consider the "not wearing bra" scenario. :yuk:

No, when Beatrix goes to, for example, Spain, she is still The Queen. Also on holiday.

That&#39;s what I thought too. I believe that&#39;s what Jordan does. Hamzah has to get sworn in each time Abdullah leaves the country. I think Haakon did the same when his father took a leave...

konan 06-11-2004 06:22 AM

Laurentien did something public yesterday. Any news?

konan 06-12-2004 04:55 AM

Today Laurentien will bring baby Amalia in church for christening. Such an honour. It is clear that Constantijn as godfather of Amalia and Laurentien are really the second royal couple in line and will assist the crowncouple with their duties.

Why is it that Laurentien will carry Amalia into the church instead of Willem or Maxima or one of the godparents?

Morgen geeft Laurentien het startsein voor de kinderboekenweektrein in Amersfoort. Ik zou graag willen gaan kijken, maar ik kan nergens het programma zien of hoe laat het gaat gebeuren. Weet iemand iets meer.
Sorry for the English readers I asked for information of a visit from Laurentien in Amersfoort and I know that you can&#39;t give an answer.

It looks like Laurentien is getting prettier everyday. She looks really terefic at this photo&#39;s. I admire her sincerely.

pollyemma 06-17-2004 04:16 PM

that outift is like a failed attempt to copy what maxima was wearing on Queen&#39;s day&#33;

Hi&#33;&#33;

I spotted Prince Constantijn at Waterloo International Station in London this morning. He was on the same train as my mum and my sis from Brussels.
I think he noticed that me and my friend was looking at him, so he looked down shyly to the ground. He is a true Prince of Orange-he was carrying an orange bag. He looksss so normal and seems down to earth coz he was sitting in the standard class...

I don&#39;t know if this family picture of them has already been posted on this thread but I would post it because I like it. All of them looks very nice and happy.

Family Picture

I just wonder that if Prince Constantijn&#39;s family live in Brussels, there would be a limited number of work the two will have. I mean they are not living in Netherlands so how would they be able to do directly a task. What was their main purpose why they moved to Brussels? Does Prince Constantijn and Princess Laurentien have jobs there?

royal_sophietje 07-04-2004 07:17 AM

Yes, they have jobs there. And it is more closer to the family in Holland then when they lived in Londen.

samitude 07-06-2004 06:51 PM

It&#39;s time to start a new thread so this one will be closed.

HMQueenElizabethII 08-22-2004 01:16 PM

Where is Princess Laurentien and Prince Constantijn now?I hadn't seen her for a long time?

konan 09-04-2004 04:41 AM

In the Weekend there are photo's of the couple in love in Porto Ercole. Constantijn with a hat and Laurentien in a kind of bathsuit-top with trousers. They walk hand in hand, smiling and kissing. Constanstijn is doing a massage on the shoulders of his wife. The article suggets a third child with such amorous pictures.
By the way the photos are made bij Remi van Maaren, Weekend.

mybags 09-04-2004 01:45 PM

Wouldn't a third child be wonderful?!

MoonlightRhapsody 09-05-2004 03:17 AM

They could tell that with a shoulder massage? Wow, a third child would be great for them...

xxLindaxx 09-08-2004 03:39 AM

On the cover of Story, a new picture of Laurentien, Constantijn and Claus-Casismir. According the Story, there will be no third child...

Prince Constantijn tells SBS today that Eloise and CC at that time in a creche where:D

konan 09-09-2004 03:31 PM

Aren't there any photo's of Laurentien at the Worldanalfabeticday yesterday? There were items on SBS shownews and RTL Boulevard. She looked wonderful. She excused herself by a reporter of her stiff behaviour caused by a neck hernia. I really hope there are pictures available because she really is a beautifull stylish princess in action.

Mette2 09-09-2004 06:24 PM

There're pictures of her on the Benelux Messageboard and she looks beautiful.

moosey60 09-09-2004 06:58 PM

Why does she wear her wedding ring on her right hand? (I thought they were worn on the left hand...)

Pr Constantijn talked to journalists yesterday after opening the new faculty of Law of his alma mater, Leiden University. Asked about which of the two names of his sons doublename Claus-Camir has come into use he said: it is CLAUSIMIR. Laurentien later told that Eloise sometimes uses Camir for her younger brother.

Julia 09-09-2004 07:59 PM

Very nice photos of Laurentien. She's quite a stylish princess.

DDD 09-14-2004 05:49 PM

Laurentien just keeps looking better. Although, the fabric is just a bit too much.

Gabriella 09-14-2004 06:27 PM

Great pictures! I don't think that I really like her new haircut. There is something about it that just reminds me of Joan Rivers. When I first glanced at one photo, that is who I thought it was for just a moment. Other than that, she looks great!

Alisa 09-14-2004 06:32 PM

Fanstastic pictures, thanks.Does anyone know the occasion ?

mktv2000 09-14-2004 08:21 PM

In a lot of European countries the wedding ring is worn on the right hand.

moosey60 09-14-2004 09:25 PM

What's with the silver jacket? I've noticed that Laurentien is beautiful but she tends to cover herself with unflattering outfits/materials...esp. that outfit she wore to one of the May weddings...that jacket-like top that had people speculating that she may have needed more "support"?

xxLindaxx 09-21-2004 11:42 AM

The baptism of count Claus Casimir is due on the
10th of october. Godfathers will be HRH The Prince of Orange,
HH Prince Maurits,Mr ter Haar,and Tatiana countess
Gazobowski(hope I spell that right?).


Marengo 09-21-2004 02:49 PM

are you sure it s a mr ter Haar? I thought it was a mr Spanjaard.

xxLindaxx 09-21-2004 04:06 PM

hehe...sorry you're right, it's mr Ed. P. Spanjaard

Genevieve 09-30-2004 09:53 PM

How old is Laurentien? She looks rather old (late thirties/early forties) in the last picture, but I know she probably isn't that old since she just had a baby earlier this year. Maybe it is her haircut.

Alisa 09-30-2004 10:05 PM

She is 38. Certainly not "old" to have a baby in this day and age.
