Haute Bordure at the Fries Museum

Let’s hope museums can open their doors soon again. They have been forced to close their doors here in the Netherlands because of Covid-19 on 15 December 2020. Honestly I think the museums and many people can’t wait until they open again. There is one exhibition I particularly hope to visit soon, as it is […]

Dutch royal TV in times of crisis

The Dutch television at the moment rebroadcasts successful old tv-programs, including some royal ones. Unfortunately most of it is in Dutch, but it is worth watching.

A knitted history) by Fiona […]

Ten Years Ago – Beatrix and Laurentien at UMCG

On Friday 30 March 2007 Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands and her daughter-in-law Princess Laurentien – who wasn’t announced beforehand – attended an international symposium about overweight young children at the UMCG (University Medical Center Groningen) in Groningen, The Netherlands.

Chapeaux! The Hat Exhibition has been opened

On 22 March Princess Beatrix opened an exhibition of her own hats at Palace Het Loo in Apeldoorn, The Netherlands. Although expected, she didn’t wear a hat, probably the best in this case as there were already enough hats. The next day ‘Chapeaux! Hats of Queen Beatrix’ opened to the public and will remain open […]
