What I found interesting was that is customary that the Queen of Holland is not allowed to give her opinion in public... but rather she is expected to share her views with the Prime Minister and if he likes her ideas he is free to use them but is not required to listen to nor follow her advice.
Another really cool thing about this little area is that this had been a courtyard of a castle which was like a fortress with wall surrounding.
Alex pointed out the little spout that would be used if under attack to pour hot oil down on the enemy.
All I could do was take in the majesty of it all... I couldn't help but to imagine living here in this... what seemed to be like a fairytale but yet it was so very real... I found myself daydreaming about what it would have been like to be a princess 100s of years ago in Den Haag.
