HRH Princess Margriet of the Netherlands 

The European Cultural Foundation would like to extend our warm wishes to HRH Princess Margriet of the Netherlands, who celebrates her 75th birthday on 19 January 2018.

Princess Margriet was the foundation's President for nearly 25 years - from 1983 to 2007. We celebrate her tireless dedication to European culture and to the foundation's work every year through our ECF Princess Margriet Award for Culture, which is due to celebrate its tenth anniversary this May.
