Who is this lady?

She's Anna Paulowna, and (literally) sits on a bench on the square that holds her name in the centre of the Hague. She was the sister of Tsar Nicolas I of Russia and the wife of William II of the Netherlands. I love this square, there is kind of a Southern feeling (on a sunny day) with a very nice terrass, a busy wine bar and a dynamic art gallery called Vonkel.

Nice closeup of Anna ... very stylish! I hope you don't mind your neighbor stepping on the toes (so to speak) as we venture into DH very often. Welcome to the CDPB!
