But is this agreement based on a law? Donīt think so. Itīs just, that the dutch court is then ignoring journalists of certain publications...or that they try to sue them.
If Iīd be a big publisher, Iīd so not care for such an agreement. What is so special, if you have to publish pics, that are free on the internet, that TV stations and daily newspapers have already shown.
As much as I remember Mette Marit also asked the press to leave Marius alone. One could call this agreement as well...and it didnīt work (always)
Iīm saying "big publisher", because as it seems the lawyers of Royals have some respect and donīt go as much at them as at small publishers. E.g. when the Swedish Royal familiy sued some German rags, it was hardly ever about the 2 big groups (Bauer&Burda)
However MaxiCosy and Pilsje are profiting here in every case...
1. Even though the other woman definitely must be the nanny, Maxima is coming across as hands-on. Itīs a nice little scene many dutch families can identify with. And the mag even stated, that Papa and Oma took care of Ariane in the meanwhile (while probably the other nanny was involved)
2. If they go against it, they are seeming like protective parents. I guess most Dutch would see things like that. They seem even more lulled by the courtīs PR than the Danes. Esp. the crown princely couple seems close to untouchable.
If one is asking a dutch person, why Willem isnīt the hardest worker either...one always gets to hear, that he is preparing to become a king behind the scenes (whatever this does mean, one though canīt say) and that he has his water issue. Not that Iīd think, itīs not important (I guess we would all fall onto our knees and would pray for forgiveness, if Freddles finally would get a cause and wouldnīt mark time on ships&boats as duties
) but apart from the water issues, one could also fill the schedule with more other things as well.
I might be unfair and Iīm not sooo much into the dutch RF, that you can call me an expert, but that it is with WA&M Dolce Vita all over the place one canīt deny
3. If they win, they can maybe avoid unfortunate Bikini shootings in the future.
