Business as usual in the frame of openings and charities and at times accompanying TM like this coming May 5th,Liberation Day,as she will
accompany them to the Liberation Day Concert on the Amstel river here.And she already has a growing number of engagements for the time to come.

HRH was honoured with a firm thank you at Gilze-Rijen Airforce base by the Forces.She was welcomed by a row of her very own former
Adjutants to HM The Queen and welcomed by the Commander in Chief,Genral Tom Middendorp.

She stood there and smiled,talked and walked as if she never fell and fractured anything and wasn't operated on just two weeks ago!

Still out and about and very much loved and respected!

Last week she joined TM & their girls and son Prince Constantine and his family for wintersports in Lech am Arlberg,Austria.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VRCwlKCbyg&ab_channel=NOS

The annual wintersport in Lech is an over 60 year tradition of the Dutch RF,and starts with the photoshoot.An agreement
of the Dutch RF and the Press...to take pics for an halve hour after which the RF will be left in peace for the remainder of the holiday there,and that works well,very well,they are entitled to some privacy during a vacation.But they go all over town there as well so you might run into one of them or all of them in the town of Lech,be it in the supermarket or,shops or restaurants they favour.
The bond the Orange Nassau's and Lech is strong.
