and husband, Prof. Pieter van Vollenhoven, visit Canada to celebrate
the Liberation of Holland in 1945, Tamara Gignac in the Calgary Herald noted
Fred would have the rare opportunity to meet the Princess while in Calgary. Indeed 
 Fred presented her with Call Me Mom. The book includes a passage
describing Fred's encounter with her father, the late Prince Bernhard.  There was 
another meeting when Mr. van Vollenhoven borrowed Fred's Raleigh bike. 200 orange
clad Dutch Calgarians joined the Royals in the Go Green, Go Dutch, Go Bike ride along
the Bow River bike paths. Some wags now call our author "Sir Fred Raleigh"
