A Visit to the Netherlands

Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stephanie (presumably) jumped into the car and drove about 350 kilometres northwards to meet with various European counterparts at Apeldoorn today. (Well, maybe they stayed in Rome for the last couple of days... But anyway, you get the point.)

The Prince of Orange and his wife Princess Maxima invited the Hereditary Grand Ducal Couple as well as Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden, the Prince and Princess of Asturias, Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, the Duke and Duchess of Brabant plus Crown Prince Haakon of Norway for a private visit at the hunting lodge Kasteel Het Oude Loo

Although no official reason for the gathering of such a large number of European heirs was given, it probably has to do with the fact that Willem-Alexander will soon become the King of the Netherlands.
