The hobby of Pieter van Vollenhoven

Of course also royals have hobbies. Often you will never hear about them, but occasionally something becomes known.

Did you know that Pieter van Vollenhoven, husband of Princess Margriet of the Netherlands, loves photographing? Living at Het Loo on the edge of the forest, has its advantages. Over the years Pieter van Vollenhoven has been able to photograph the nature at its best. He loves spending time in the woods observing animals and plants. Photographing is a good way to see even more details of nature, he says.

Some of his work can be seen from 21 March to 18 May 2014 at the Museum Jan van der Togt in Amstelveen, The Netherlands. The photos can be bought too. With his photography Van Vollenhoven supports the “Fonds Slachtofferhulp”, for victims of crimes and accidents. He himself is a founder and president of the foundation.

Of course he is not the only photographing royal. Not seldom you will see royals on photos making photos themselves, even during official engagements. Especially when they are travelling abroad or visit a special occasion they like to have their own souvenir.
