Vandaag viert mijn kleindochter Lotte Maartje Elizabeth van der Heijden haar veertiende verjaardag. Langs deze weg gaan mijn welgemeende gelukwensen naar haar uit. Lotte is geboren op het moment dat ik in Granada de Stichting Cervantes Benelux vertegenwoordigde op het tweede internationale congres van de Federación Internacional de Asociaciones de Profesores de Español.

Vanuit deze achtergrond memoreer ik aansluitend aan mijn ‘Bericht over Prins Harry en mijn verbindende elementen d.d. 26 september vanaf 1996’  mijn verbindende elementen d.d. 27 september vanaf 1997 Mailing 1999 Van Cutsem 2000 Heydens karwei 2002 Wij Heeren van Heyendael 2003 Liesbeths maten 2004 Forever yours 2005 Zuid-Afrika 2006 Bezoek aan Loenen 2007 De opening van het FIAPE-congres in Granada door Prof.Dr Walter Bernecker en ontmoeting met oude bekenden 2008 Bericht over Philipse Business School 2009 Terug uit Cádiz 2010 Aan de vooravond van een nieuwe regeringRetour Vlissingen-Nijmegen 2011 Thom de Graaf vertrekt als Burgemeester van Nijmegen 2012 Als de dag van toen.

09:22 Ontvangen Kate Middleton and Prince William enjoy burger and chips pub lunch with George, Louis and Charlotte Royals were seen tucking into pub grub at undisclosed beer garden in Norfolk. William was seen consoling one of the youngsters whose food was too hot to eat. Kate and William appeared relaxed and happy after spate of public engagements. Punters were shocked to see Prince William and Kate Middleton tucking into a pub lunch in Norfolk at the weekend. The royal pair were joined by Princes George, aged eight, and Louis, three and Princess Charlotte, six, as they all enjoyed burgers and chips at the undisclosed beer garden on Saturday. The family’s black spaniel Lupo was also in attendance – spotted sniffing around the wooden table as the royals tucked into some traditional English pub grub.  William, donning a navy jumper and light blue shirt, was seen consoling one of the youngsters when their food proved too hot to eat.  Meanwhile young George kept it more casual than usual in a turquoise t-shirt, shorts and trainers. The happy couple appeared relaxed as they enjoyed some family time after a busy spate of public engagements. Kate had recently met with Afghan veterans in Brize Norton in Oxfordshire and cadets in Lake Windermere, before playing doubles with US Open champion Emma Raducanu in Roehampton. Meanwhile Prince William had attended emergency services day in London and visited football youth teams. A witness told the Sun: ‘It was amazing to see how down-to-earth the family were. 

‘It would have been easy to miss them – and just assume they were any other family. ‘They were laughing and chatting and clearly enjoying each other’s company.’ The witness added: ‘They were eating outside, I suppose because it was easier for the children. ‘There was no security around, just them chilling like any other family. Wills had a burger and chips. ‘They had their pet dog, a spaniel with them, and they were all laughing.  ‘There was one particularly touching moment where one of the children got upset because their food was too hot. ‘William was so fast to reassure them and sort them out. It was fantastic to see.’ The family day out came as it was revealed Prince William and David Attenborough will present a new BBC programme about the environment. The show will feature pioneers who have been recognised for finding innovative solutions to the most pressing climate issues. In a trailer introducing the documentary, The Earthshot Prize: Repairing Our Planet, The Duke of Cambridge, 39, tells viewers ‘this is a moment for hope, not fear’. The Queen’s grandson, who lives at Kensington Palace in London with Kate and their three children, will speak with winners of The Earthshot Prize, a global competition he launched alongside The Royal Foundation in October 2020, in the five-part series. The series will air from October 3, and each episode will focus on a different environmental issue – protecting and restoring nature, fixing the climate, combating air pollution, reviving the oceans, and tackling waste. 

Dit verhaal brengt mij in gedachten terug naar 19 augustus 1997. Na ons bezoek aan Windsor Castle, Frogmore House, Eton College en Royal Kew Gardens werd ik in het Holiday Inn Hotel in Windsor/Maidenhead door de receptioniste opgewacht met de vraag “Mister Van der Heyden. Where have you been this afternoon?” Mijn antwoord “I’ve been to Eton College. I’ve got some friends up there.” Waarop zij antwoordde met “Yes I know. Prince William. I know him from the Pizzahut in Windsor”.   

10:14 Meghan’s subtle tribute to Diana: Duchess of Sussex carried 3,450 pounds Dior bag named after the late princess in New York – while als wearing her mother-in-law’s Cartier watch By Chloe Morgan For Mailonline Published: 09:04 BST, 27 September 2021 | Updated: 09:09 BST, 27 September 2021 Meghan Markle paid a subtle tribute to her late mother-in-law Princess Diana by carrying a Dior bag named after her in New York – while also wearing her Cartier watch. The Duchess of Sussex, 40, stepped out at the Global Live Citizen event on Saturday wearing a black coat and scarf in 76F weather – but it was her accessories that captured the attention of royal fans. The mother-of-two paid a touching tribute to late Princess Diana by carrying Christian Dior’s Lady D-Lite bag, which retails at £3,450. Originally called ‘Chouchou,’ the Lady Dior bag changed its name in 1996 in honour of Princess Diana after she was seen using it. The boxy bag was gifted to the late royal by the First Lady of France in September 1995, at the opening of the Paul Cézanne retrospective at Paris’s Grand Palais. At this time, the Chouchou wasn’t yet on sale to the public, and only in the possession of the world’s one per cent. And it wasn’t long before Diana starting pairing the black patent bag with many of her chic ensembles – including a white Versace suit that she wore during a trip to Argentina on November 26, 1995. Admitting it ‘suited her well,’ the late royal then went on to commission another in navy blue to match the colour of her eyes.


Aansluitend aan mijn bericht ‘Mijn verbindende elementen d.d. 25 september vanaf 1995 en Mercosur’ ontving ik om 11:38 als reactie op mijn opmerking ‘Ik begin meer en meer de indruk te krijgen dat de Amerikaanse aanklacht tegen Prins Andrew over ‘sexueel misbruik van een minderjarige’ op een ‘advocatentruc’ berust om de rechtsgang terzake te frustreren’:

Secret document Virginia Roberts signed in 2009 to resolve civil case she brought against Jeffrey Epstein ‘will not save Prince Andrew from court’ Prince Andrew’s lawyers asked to see a document signed in 2009 by Roberts. It was signed by Roberts to resolve a case she brought against Jeffrey Epstein. The lawyers believe it may release the Duke from all liability for Roberts’ claims. But two sources close to the case insist the agreement doesn’t apply to Andrew By Daniel Bates and Stephen Wright for the Daily Mail Published: 22:38 BST, 24 September 2021 | Updated: 23:42 BST, 24 September 2021

Mijn vermoeden blijkt dus juist. Bovenstaand document blijkt dus in 2009 te zijn opgemaakt. Meer dan een jaar later dan het artikel van 15 januari 2008.

In dit verband ontving ik aansluitend aan mijn bericht ‘Mijn verbindende elementen d.d. 8 augustus vanaf 1996 de dag van Buckingham Palace’ dit bericht van Daily Mail: “Harry is likely to ask Eugenie for help with memoir By Isabella Nikolic For Mailonline Published: 08:51 BST, 8 August 2021 | Updated: 09:03 BST, 8 August 2021 Prince Harry is expected to ask Princess Eugenie for help with his explosive £14million memoir that’s set to drop ‘truth bombs’ on the Royal Family. The book, created with Pulitzer Prize-winning ghostwriter JR Moehringer, 56, is due to be released next year.  Eugenie, 31, who knew Meghan Markle after working in New York and introduced her to Harry, is believed to be in regular contact with the Duke of Sussex, 36. And a source told the Sun: ‘I could only imagine Eugenie talking or being approached as she is someone Harry is still in regular contact with.’ Eugenie’s husband Jack Brooksbank, 35, is also a close friend of the Duchess of Sussex and the couple were given Harry and Meghan’s former UK home – Frogmore Cottage. Prince Harry is believed to have rubbed members of the Royal Family the wrong way by asking them about their memories of his mother Princess Diana before revealing he was writing the memoir. Buckingham Palace declined to comment.  It comes after it was revealed that the book deal consists of four books and the second will only be released once the Queen dies.  The deal will see a memoir released next year – when it is the Queen’s platinum jubilee – with the second book to be held back until after her death. Harry’s wife Meghan is to pen a ‘wellness’ guide as part of the contract with Penguin Random House. The subject and author of the fourth title is unknown. Two publishers flew out from London to see him and others took part in the ‘auction’ by video call, sources say. ‘He conducted negotiations – he had a very ‘take it or leave it’ attitude,’ said an impeccably-placed source in the publishing industry. ‘His starting price was $25million (£18million) and the final figure was way north of that, possibly as much as $35-40million (£25-29million). ‘Those involved were actually very shocked by his approach, which was to look at them coldly and state his demands – $25million. ‘In Britain, publishing is still a rather ‘gentlemanly’ industry. It’s high stakes, but is still conducted in very genteel terms.’ The source added: ‘The final contract was actually for a four-book deal, with Harry writing one “when his granny dies”. Meghan will write a wellness-type book and people are unsure what the fourth will be. But what is most shocking, frankly, is Harry’s suggestion that the second book won’t be published until the Queen is no longer here. ‘People [will] start asking ‘what has he got, who is he going to target?’ The very idea of this unexploded bomb, hanging about waiting for the Queen to pass, is just extraordinary and may strike many as being in very bad taste.’ The Royal Family has been left deeply concerned by Harry’s decision to secretly collaborate with Pulitzer-winning ghostwriter JR Moehringer on what his publishers described as ‘the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him’. The two men have been working on the book for up to a year. It is described by Harry as a ‘wholly truthful first-hand account’ of his life. But royal aides are worried that it will prove to be a highly one-sided account of the prince’s experiences and reignite tensions with his estranged family. The Queen and senior royals are still dealing with the fallout from his slew of interviews, most notably with US chat show host Oprah Winfrey. The prince has made a string of highly damaging allegations about his closest relatives, including claims of institutional racism. Penguin Random House said that the ‘proceeds’ from the book would be donated to charity but has not detailed whether this would include both royalties and the advance. A spokesman for the prince also insisted that he had informed his family – including the Queen – about plans for his book ‘very recently’. Yet the Mail understands his office made attempts to contact the royal household only hours before the story was broken by a US newspaper after learning it was about to become public. Charles is said to have been particularly surprised by the news when it was announced.”

En gisteren om 19:53 Harry and Meghan head to ‘Wokesock’ in Central Park where they will take to the stage to call vor COVID-19 ‘vaccine equity’ after meeting with UN Secretary General The Sussexes left the luxury Carlyle Hotel in their cavalcade of gas-guzzling cars 11am Saturday morning. They visited the UN building in Manhattan to meet with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. Meghan opted for a head-to-toe camel-colored outfit with a $4,124 Max Mara coat and wide-legged pants. Harry sported a smart suit and dark tie, with the couple both carrying black portfolio briefcases. Harry and Meghan will appear on stage at Global Citizen Live in Central Park later today. The star-studded concert aims to raise awareness and money on issues, including vaccine inequity. Meghan and Harry’s appearance at the concert tops off their tour where they have mingled with New York lawmakers, UN officials, global health experts and Chelsea Clinton By Rachel Sharp For Published: 14:40 BST, 25 September 2021 | Updated: 18:50 BST, 25 September 2021
