Princess Laurentien presented her succesfull childrensbook "Mr.Finney" at the Beijing Book Fair last week.
The book is published in english as the chinese have a strong desire to raise their child ( they're only allowed one..)
bi-lingual.The book became an instant success at the Fair and the "notable" market in China.

This week it was National Read and Writing Day and that saw the Princess reading in schools:

Cyprus is the Chair of the EU at present,hence the meeting there.

HRH Prince Constantijn celebrates his 43rd birthday today.

The Prince,youngest son of HM,was recently promoted to Adjunct at the Office of EU Commissioner Neelie Kroes.
He is employed since years at the EU Commission HQ in Brussels.

The Prince nor his wife get an allowance from the State but have their own jobs and income as we here
don't do free-loaders.Only HM ,Her Heir and his spouse get a State allowance,none of the others do.

HRH Prince Constantijn,Co-Chair of the Prince Claus Fund,handed out the Prince Claus Award yesterday.
Co-Chair of the Fund as his brother,Prince Friso,is the other Co-Chair,and they take turns in handing out
this annual award.This year it would have been Prince Friso's turn,but as he is in coma,Constantijn was
to take over that part too....As he said while standing on the stage;" Looking at the empty space behind the
microphone,it symbolizes I miss Friso,he should be standing there now." Princess Mabel,Friso's spouse who
was in attendance too,her first official engagement in The Netherlands since the accident in february,was
battling tears as was Princess Laurentien.Princess Mabel arrived together with HM The Queen,two formidable
Ladies who have earned enormous respect and massive support and love here,incredible,and heartwarming.
As HM and Princess Mabel left the Palace,the Princess got presents and drawings from people and she was visibly moved.
