The EO will start a second series about Queen Juliana. The first series was made 2 years ago, and was IMO very bad, over-acting actors, too much sugar and slow (still got an avarage of 1.3 million viewers). According to the television station the new series will be more dynamic, but sadly the main actors will be the same (though Gerrie van der Klei is added and plays Princess Armgard).

Bernhard and Armgard

Juliana

Wilhelmina
 
Gerry van der Klei is a great choice,she must have felt lonely at home she gave in to the EO.:rolleyes:

"Dames van Oranje" - September 2009 Documentary on the Dutch Princesses

From today onwards, Dutch TV channel Nederland 2 will air a series of interviews/profiles of the young princesses of the Dutch RF: Dames van Oranje (Ladies of Orange).

Every chapter (aired Saturdays at 7pm through NCRV) goes over one of the young princesses of Orange: Maxima, Laurentien, Mabel, Annette, Anita, Marilene and Aimee. The host, Jetske van den Elsen, aims to find out more about the daily life, activities, and family life of the seven princesses.

The first chapter, aired today, goes over Maxima (who briefly talks to the host while in in Romania) and can be watched here (Dutch spoken of course):

NCRV - Dames van Oranje

Esmeralda already included one,click and then see bottom right:
"Bekijk uitzending":)

Btw,don't you have BVN in Switserland?Might be aired there as well.
 
This was a great program. I can only say 'thank you' in Dutch, so I didn't understand 99% of it, but it was interesting to see. Maxima has a very warm personality, and I enjoyed the end with the interviewer. They seemed to have a great rapport, and Maxima didn't appear to be guarded, or afraid to speak.

During the early part of the video, when the car containing the Queen and her children arrived at the awards presentation, a man rolled up the standard on the front of the car, and it looked like he was going to take it off of the car. Why was he doing this? Was it to prevent theft, or is this the protocol for the time when Her Majesty is out of the car? It looked like he was trying to take it off entirely, but the standard wouldn't come off.
 
Thank you, Lucien, I have tried again and found a lot of things, even a naked man !!!, but not the video of P.Maxima .......perhaps because unfortunately I don't understand Holländisch. ..... concerning the TV, yes, we have the channel BVN TV, so that I will look next Saturday. Thank you, very kind of you.

Tilla,

The link provided should work, and as Lucien says, you should be able to see it when clicking "bekijk uitzending". Other possibility is to click on the "missed programmes" (uitzending gemist) and search for Dames van Oranje in the same website:

NCRV - Uitzending Gemist

or you can also try the website www.uitzendinggemist.nl, and search by its name (click on "zoek / zoeken" for searching.)I usually watch reruns of different programs of Nederland 1,2 en 3 through that website :flowers:

My Dutch is not perfect but I was able to understand it more or less...

The host first talks to paparazzis (while awaiting for the Dutch RF outside the place where the Prins Claus Fonds awards were given away) and tries to investigate how they work.

She talks to different royal specialists, such as Jeroen Snel (Dutch host of the show Blauw Bloed), who gives advice on how to address Maxima when the host gets to talk to her (he says she should always be called "Royal Highness").

The host also explains the limits that the RVD puts in order to manage the relationship with the media, and that Maxima can only be consulted about microcredit, no private questions...

She finally gets to speak to Maxima for a couple of minutes, about microcredit and briefly about her children (though I dont really understand what Maxima says, maybe some Dutch user can help me here).

As far as I understood, the host points out that Maxima asked the RVD people whether the interview went fine or not once finished..am I right?
 
yes you are right.
It is quite endearing of her to ask their approval as she is "the boss" in a way :flowers: (or perhaps they are. Hope not)

Another link to try>

Player omroep.nl

it displays the chapter directly

Hope it works!

VE

ps. The naked man you saw is part of a TV commercial that goes right before the start of the show ; )
 
yes you are right.

It is curious...but also understandable. They seem quite strict ...

No mather how hard they try, it still won't be possible to dig deeper in the life of these women I am afraid...
 
they have nothing to hide, so I do think a few daughters in law of Margriet will be able to give a normal interview.

Mabel was or is the only one with some controversy in her past:flowers:.

Máxima said that she will take the three little savings piglets home to Eikenhorst, that when she is abroad she has a full programme because the time is short and she wants to make most of it, and that she takes into account that she has three daughters at home so she can't go away for a long period of time. ;)
 
Thank you, Verde Esmeralda, for the "Player omroep.nl" whith which I was now able to follow the whole Video. Your efforts to procure this Video are very much appreciated. It was so kind of you, and I enjoyed the whole interview very much.:)
 
Bitte, Tilla :flowers:

You will probably be able to watch the next chapters through that link too. The next one goes over Laurentien...

They weren't interviewed by this programme, in RTL Boulevard Peter van der Vorst said that the RVD denied all those requests from the programme. It might be possible that they have a short interview with Laurentien, but on iliteracy & learning only, and maybe with Marilène, but only about her project for the Rijksmuseum.
 
:previous: seems logical come to think of it. The daughters in law without a job have their private lives and want to live in respectable anonimity. Mabel might have something to say about her job. We will wait and see:flowers:
 
so some od the princess does not work?? at all??
 
:previous:
That question is best asked in the Dutch Forum rather than in Royal Library.
 
sorry! Warren. i just was aking becasue of the post 16 state some of them does not work.
 
well that would be me. post 16. Yes some of them do not work, that is stay home and raise the children.
 
It was so nice to hear Maxima. She is a very heartgoing woman.

When will the next part be broadcasted?
 
Susan Alice:thank you so much for the asnwer, I was suprise that they do not work, so They enjpy the title of princess and a good life I presume, i mst say Maxima is marvellous she is doing a great job and on top of that shewants to be presnet as much as possible for her girls, i am sure it is not easy! it would be very interesting to listen this program to see what they say about thir life!
 
thought this episode was good.

Liked the interview with a Dutch sort of Henry Higgens who could scientifically point out how the Dutch intonation of Laurentien and Mabel has changed since their marriage sounding very royal.

Laughed at the interviewer starting a letter to the RVD with a request for an interview with Geachte meneer :argh:, and they responded with a singel sentence without a salutation.

They are lucky the NCRV is not the BBC and not really excellent.
 
It is not really all that great I think.That girl is a starting,and way too much complaining,blond,who really hasn't got a clue on how it works in Royal circles.Her first lesson:Nobody was waiting for her,not interested in a starter with less then an idea.

She's nagging constantly that the Royal House is as closed as an oyster,and it is,to her,allthough she expected to be welcomed with champagne or what.It might be some nice tv,at some point,but really,its as empty as shallow can be.
 
I did enjoy seeing the footage of Queen Beatrix and her teenaged sons playing a board game together. There was a moment where it appeared that a linguist and a journalist were analyzing Mabel's voice. Was this when they were accusing Mabel and Laurentien for "sounding more royal"? This could be due to vanity, but it could also be due to the fact that they have been doing far more public speaking since their marriages, and it is possible that they have become more confident when speaking.

Also, I loved seeing the press conference from Queen Beatrix' engagement, and hearing Queen Juliana speak in English. It was so cute seeing the then Princess Beatrix skipping with flowers in her hand as she held the then Claus van Amsberg's hand. So sweet! I also loved seeing the footage of the little ones at the christening rolling around on the altar. It was absolutely adorable!

Lucien, you do raise an interesting point. I think it is fairly shallow of the journalist to criticize the royal family's accessibility when she is obviously making money off of her coverage of them.
