It is a long standing tradition of the Dutch Royal family to honour people who have contibuted in a special way to Dutch society by lifting them into knighthood. This morning Sir Umberto Tan was appointed Knight in the order of Oranje-Nassau for his voluntary work in numerous charities and foundations. Amongst others Sir Umberto is ambassador for the World Wildlife Fund, the International Red Cross, the Johan Cruijf foundation, Chairman of stichting Straatvoetbal. He is involved with stichting Suriprofs and last but to us not least he was involved with the Foundation for the Exploitation of the Amsterdam Olympic Stadion were the Nightwatch offices are located. Nightwatch congratulates Sir Umberto Tan with this well deserved honour!!
In this 2018 Kingsday image it is clear to see Sir Umberto is looking at Focus and Power.
