9.Polfoto 05-11-2003 -- Amsterdam -- Dutch Princess Margriet (sister of Dutch Queen Beatrix) flanked by her husband Mr. Pieter van Vollenhoven (who suffers from a skincancer desease) in Amsterdam 5 November 2003. The Erasmusprice is awarded annually to a person who has contributed in a sepcial way to science in the social and cultural field.

Princess Margriet is certainly a great "asset" to the Dutch royal family, isn't she? And a constant source of support for her sister the Queen.

Is Princess Margriet the only one of Queen Beatrix's sisters who perform royal duties steadily? I don't think Princess Irene does much, but what about the other sisters?

Princess Juliana has four daughters: Beatrix, Irene, Margriet and Christina. Irene and Christina have give up their rights on the trone. Irene, because she married with the spanish catholic prince Carlos Hugo. And Christina married also with a catholic man and she is almost blind, so...
But Margriet counts for ten, so she is a great help for the Queen. :)

There were new pictures on the royal family's web site in the fall (but old ones of Queen Beatrix's family) and now these great pictures.

I love how natural the family seems, too, together and in front of the cameras. This seems like a very close knit family, and obviusly Princess Margriet is loving being a grandmother of four (and soon five!). Only wish Aimee and Annette could've been part of the family portratis, too! ;)

19 January 2005 -- Princess Margriet of the Netherlands and her husband Mr. Pieter van Vollenhoven in the garden of their residence, together with their children and their grandchildren: Prince Maurits, Princess marilene and their two children Anna (3) and Lucas (2); Prnce Bernhard Jr. and Princess Annette and their two children Isabella (2) and Samuel (8 months old, also together with his godmother Princess Margriet). Also in the group are the two youngest sons, the Princes Pieter-Christiaan and Floris.
