Pete Myers was among a select group of Dutch journalists invited to Kensington Palace to interview Britain’s Crown Prince Charles in 1988 to mark the 300th anniversary of the Glorious Revolution. In 1688, the Dutch Prince of Orange and his wife, the sister of the deposed British King James, came to the throne of England. This marked the start of the Age of William and Mary. Prince Charles speaks about the event and present-day Dutch-British relations.

Also featured in this edition of our weekly magazine programme “Rembrandt Express”: the 100th anniversary of the invention of the artificial language Esperanto and the opening of a new museum in Haarlem in the home of a family of clockmakers who saved the lives of hundreds of Jews during the German occupation of the Netherlands.
