      She is properly dressed for the occasion to walk the new nature-path:

  3. KAPPEN??? Met WAT? Zij is bijna 82 en doet het rustiger aan en mag een oudere vrouw alsjeblieft met Nordic stokken lopen. Uw opmerkingen Hr Peters zijn immer van azijn als het het Nederlandse Koningshuis betreft. Uw lijkt mij een beetje sneue, rancuneuze en eenzame man.

    1. Precies,meer respectvoor deze hardwerkende prinses en ex-koningin.
      Op haar leeftijd nog heuvels beklimmen met kunstknieën etc.
      Bovendien ziet ze er altijd verzorgd uit of het nu wel of niet je smaak is.
      Maar Peters is gewoon een jankerig type.

    2. Er zijn al meerdere sites waar deze zogenaamde "heer" niet meer mag reageren vanwege zijn beschamende opmerkingen.
      Ik ben blij dat ik hier medestanders vind.
      Wat betreft prinses Beatrix: zag elke 81-jarige er maar zo uit.

    3. Maar anoniem reageren mag wel. Wat een niveau.

    4. U hoeft zich toch niet tot dit niveau te verlagen?
