AMSTERDAM - Rheden succeeded in being the first municipality to name a street after Princess Ariane. Within an hour of her name being announced, Mayor Van Wingerden-Boers unveiled an official street sign in Velp, a town within the municipality of Rheden.

The municipality was also the first to name streets after Ariane's two older sisters, princesses Catharina-Amalia and Alexia.

The sign which reads "Ariane Wilhelminapad" was placed at the connecting path near the corner of the Hogeweg, behind the Wilhelmina bench. The bench was placed there in 1923 to commemorate the visit of Queen Wilhelmina in that year.
