A Gift From a Friend

My good friend, Oscar, who lives in The Netherlands (and who is an ardent monarchist like I am) sent me a lovely present, which I received this morning. I thought it was too cute not to share with you all.

It’s gorgeous, isn’t it? A silver desk standee of King William III, who was of course Stadtholder and Prince of Orange over in the Dutch Republic. Oscar is a big fan of his as well. My husband and I met up with Oscar for a memorable Chinese meal in Amsterdam, and he kindly showed us around the naughty red light district, and we’re sad we haven’t been back in over a year. It’s funny really, because only last night I was thinking about how much I missed the Netherlands…

I’ve placed my miniature William III by my picture of William and Mary, which I’m back on again after my recent dalliance with the Duke of Monmouth.
