A new princess!

Yesterday I was standing in a bar when they showed the happy news on one of their flat-screens: our princess Maxima gave birth to her and her husband’s third daughter! The new princess will be the fourth person in line to become our next queen. Her name is yet unknown, but will be made public during the next days. Exciting!

Of course retail wants to join in the festivities by selling orange products, since orange is our national colour. One product that I really like is the following:

Oranje beschuit

In the Netherlands, it’s a tradition to eat ‘beschuit met muisjes’ when a baby is born. Blue sprinkles for a boy and pink ones when it’s a girl. They will be served everywhere to celebrate the birth of a new princess, such as at university, in shops etc.

All I can say to the parents, congratulations with your healthy and beautiful daughter!
