Princess Mabel, widow of Prince Friso, permitted the release of three pictures of her with her late husband, of her husband and his daughters Luana and Zaria, and of the young family enyoing a day boating with friends. Two of the pictures were taken by Friso and Mabel’s good friend from Australia, Adam Anders.
Mr Anders on Monday gave a moving tribute to his friend in a special television programme dedicated to the life of Prince Friso.
Mr Anders the Prince was one of the smartest persons he ever met, but also impeccable and a man of great integrity. The Australian shed a new light on the Dutch Prince who preferred to stay out of the limelights and who wanted to be judged for his works and not for his title.
‘The Prince we are only now getting to know’, one newspaper headlined after the programme which was watched by 1,8 million viewers, the third most watched programme of that evening with the national news broadcast that preceded it drwaing 2,5 million viewers.
