Finally. I like they family events.

Why Oranje's children have so light hair?
Doesn't Luana look-a-like grandma Beatrix and Zaria like Ariana?
 
Wonderfull to see all the children again,and Prince Carlos with his soon to be fiancee,very nice!:)
 
Maxima was with Mathilde at opening of museum M.
Maybe Willem and daughters were inside the palace?

The Prince is in New York,the Princess will follow him there this evening.
the children are at home.:)
 
Was Princess Aimé there ??
The next event of the Dutch RF will be the engagement Prince Carlos of Bourbon Parme.
When I see old pictures of Juliana's childhood she was always alone , I am glad to see the RF of nowadays.
 
I think this event is very special for each family, it makes people closer.
The baby is cutie...
 
All the kids are getting so big! :flowers:

Does anyone know why it took so long for them to have Pieter's christening? Isn't he like a year old?

Pieter Sr. must have been there, I'm sure, but I don't see him in any of the photos?

The same I wonder...one year or 11 months are a long time for a Christening...Usually the Christening takes place a few months after the birth, but not so long...

Princess Aimee with baby Elaine. She looks so so incredible cute. :flowers:
Is the engagement of Prince Carlos a fact?

This is such a wonderful event. Eloise looks very much like her mother. :)

Concerning the time of Christening: christian babies are baptised by a priest immediately after their birth within a very simple ceremony together with the closest family, often even at the hospital. Thereafter, the official christening ceremony and the festivities with the family and friends may take place whenever later on.
 
I love seeing this family with their cousins. They seem so happy and so close, and Anita and Pieter-Christian look like proud parents. Eliane is beautiful, and Aimee looks great. I wonder when they will have her christening.

No,not quiet.The Orange Nassaus are protestant so a minister baptises the child,not a priest,and the time between baptism and birth can range from 4 months to 10 months at times,whatever the parents,or the agenda,wish/allows in order to have as many family members around as possible.And,you only get baptised/christened whatever you call it where you are,once,never twice just for the heck of it.It is a one time occasion,always and everywhere.

I think this sort of immediate christening would be more likely to take place in groups that believe baptism is necessary for salvation, as is often the case with Catholics. I'm a Presbyterian, and for us the baptism is just symbolic, so there's no need to do it right after birth - we wait and do it in a later church service. :flowers:
 
I enjoy seeing this family at get togethers. They all look so happy and close-knit. Lovely picture of the actual baptismwith all the children standing around watching.
So I guess the next gathering will probably be the baptism of Aimee and Floris's daughter Eliane. Is it Eliane or Elaine? The photo description said Eliane but I wasn't sure if it was a typo.

Why did they visit to New York again? They've just recently returned home from there.

On the 5th July 2009 Princess Aimee gave birth to a little girl, Eliane Sophia Carolina at 14.50 at VU Hospital in Amsterdam.

It's spelt ia.

Why did they visit to New York again? They've just recently returned home from there.

The Princes & Princess are in New York to attend meetings at the UN HQ with SG BAN Ki Moon on
monday on inclusive financial services and the Princess will speech at the annual Clinton Global Initiative on tuesday.

Thank you, Stephan, for posting the link to the PPT Newsagency pictures. It is so nice to see up-to-date pictures of the van Vollenhovens and their children. There has been a bit of an explosion of grandchildren for Pss Margriet (and also for Queen Beatrix) so it is good to be able to put faces to the names.
 
What a pleasant and lovely family the Van Vollenhovens. It´s great to see all the cousins attending as well. Beautiful children all. It´s a shame the AAA girls weren´t there, but I understand the reason why.

I think Aimee is narcissistic but very chique.

The necklace of Marilene is :sick:

and as I mentioned in the fashion thread Laurentine looks rediculous, sleeves are childish, she would have looked like an adult in a copy of the dresses her daughters wear and why she put her son in an austrian/bavarian jacket as a dutch little boy in holland is a mysterie. With the sunglasses on her head and tacky necklace, Natasja Froger looks aristocratic compared to Laurentine.

I think Julia is a doll, a beautiful chilld

Everyone in the family looks lovely and happy to join in the celebration of the baptism. Very lovely to see a large family and all the grownups are still with their original marriage partners. It is a family event and not a fashion show put on for prospective buyers.
 
Pieter was ten months yesterday, he was born on the 19th of november last year.

The kids are getting so big, Emma was for me not the little girl I recognized, she is really a little girl and not a baby anymore. Also Pieter has changed a lot!
 
Prince Carlos of Bourbon-Parma was escorted by Annemarie Gualthérie van Weezel, it is the first time they are seen together AFAIK.
