So sad, those dear little girls, Mabel lost her Dad when she was young. She will know how these girls will be feeling.

The Family walked to the church thus enabling all to see them,their wish.

The funeral service was concluded a short while ago,it lasted an hour and a halve,and the interment ceremony has begun.

I disagree, I think its the family's decision to show themselves, they could have taken the car with dark tinted glass, no but they walked, so the photographers could see them & take pictures. The dutch public has an interest in this day that is not focused on voyeurism but deep sympathy with the DRF and they understand this.

The family will have their privacy at the church etc.

I almost wish I had not looked at these. Mabel and Beatrix look devastated.

Pics and video are heartbreaking �� In a video from NOS I saw that Italy's Foreign Minister, Emma Bonino, was present too.

Good that his mother, wife and daughters went first; and the King with his family in the second row.

Thank you for identifying Emma Bonino. I was wondering who that blonde woman was, as she was walking just behind the immediate family. Very touching to see everyone return to the palace arm in arm, including King Harald with Laurentien. She is the godmother of one of Princess Martha's girls, so must be close to the family.

No family is completely perfect, but the Dutch Royals seem so simple and natural, yet everything a ruling family should be at the same time.

I really like and admire all of them.

I think Friso was a mommy's boy in all the best possible ways. He was able to connect with his mommy in a way the others didn't.

Dutch Prince Friso's Funeral Attended By Royal Family, Friends
Quote:
The House of Orange, which jealously guards its privacy, asked the public to stay away from the funeral ceremony, and police closed roads near the church where it took place. They also put up fences to prevent sightseers. Police allowed two Dutch news agencies to photograph and film the ceremony for distribution to media later in the day.
National broadcaster NOS reported that Friso's two brothers – King Willem-Alexander and Prince Constantijn – along with four of his childhood friends, carried Friso's casket to his grave.

Thanks everyone for the picture links. I looked at them and my admiration for the Dutch Royal family just seems to increase. They are such a warm loving family, I am so glad that Mabel and the girls will have a close knit group of family to gather around them and comfort them. I am so glad that Princess Beatrix and Mabel are close, at least she can take some comfort in Friso children. Having lost my brother when I was a teenager, it always helped that he had a son that we could watch grow up and help out. I have to say that the side picture of the Princess of Orange broke my heart. Amalia and Alexia looked heartbroken, I am so glad they have such an amazing loving set of parents. The photo of them all walking away with their arms around each other was priceless!!

Yes, I agree. I noticed The Princess of Orange's face and it was heartbreaking to see such a lovely young woman obviously grieving for her uncle. Very, very sad. But it also speaks of her maturity, sensitivity and character.
