Dutch Royalty to Visit Antarctica
Dutch Crown Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima plan to visit Antarctica for three days next month (February 6-9, 2009 to be exact). The Dutch do not have an Antarctic research station, so they will be staying at the British Rothera Station. The visit is to correspond with the International Polar Year.
