Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is with gratitude and admiration that I participate in this event today.

I am saddened that Prince Claus cannot be with us tonight, and I am sure that all of you will join me in requesting Her Majesty The Queen to convey to His Royal Highness our warmest regards and best wishes.
