Looking the many pictures in my royals, I found that HM should have had a more closed upper part of her black coat or dress.
This is only my personal opinion and am sorry to have written about this. kind regards MO

To Mum ,
I apologize in thread 324 , its over !

Yes, it is indeed heartbreaking... And the little girls all dresssing white dresses... it's so moving... They look like angels. The whole family looks so close, lovingly supporting each other... I hope God in His mercy will give the family the strenght, the courage and the wisdom to overcome this tragedy and carry on, united and loving as a family should be. P. Mabel and her girls will need that. And so will P. Beatrice. But i believe that Queen Maxima, as the smart and outwitted woman she seems to be will be able to find a way to keep the family together...

R.I.P. Prince Friso

The photos are really touching and sad, everyone seems to be greatly effected by the death of Prince Friso (particularly the children). I really liked this paragraph in the speech that Blue_ posted:

Quote:
The arrival of you, Luana and Zaria, so did you told me, has totally changed Friso. He enjoyed being with you and doing a lot of things together: games with Luana, reading books with her, building technics with Zaria: airplanes, vulcanos. And with both of you: treasure hunts.
It sounds like they had a lot of fun together. I'm sure Friso will be greatly missed by Luana and Zaria.

mange tak Muhler as always, but if you have a chance to listen to Maaike Ouboter on youtube 'dat ik je mis' with English subtitles you will cry anyway. The singer based her song on having lost her parents, so that one can easily imagine why she was chosen to sing at Prince Friso's funeral.

Growing up, my mother said children wear white to funerals. I don't know what cultural tradition that came from

I think I disagree with you, it's not a rule, but a family will and wish.
Usually at Catholic funerals (and I've been to a lot), children are dressed in dark colors just for the respect of the deceased and other people, if they choose black, dark blue, brown, dark green, etc... is up to the family to decide what's better and appropriate. Princess Elisabeth and Prince Gabriel wore black for the funeral of their maternal grandfather, there's nothing wrong with black.
My country is Catholic, and I never seen white at a funeral so far, but it depends on the country traditions and the families will.

I see nothing wrong with what Maxima was wearing for her brother-in-law's funeral. It looked more appropriate than the dish Mabel was wearing on her head. I've never seen children wear white to funerals, either. In fact, the only time I saw a girl child wear white was when the Luxembourg family had an audience with Pope John Paul II. Princess Alexandria(?) was the only one wearing white. Her mother and grandmother were wearing black, and all the males had black suits on. I guess it's a matter of opinion.

I'm not disagreeing with you, but I am Catholic too and I have never attended a requiem where young children were dressed the way you describe.

In the end it's up to what the family prefers and perhaps isn't even that important.

I was sadden to hear of the death of Prince Friso. I saw many of the pictures and the one that stands out to me is the picture of Prince Friso as he was in life. I thought about his children, his wife and his family and how much he loved them. This almost brought me to tears (especially when thinking about his mother (the Queen and his children).

My condolences to the Dutch Royal Family.

Children wearing white

Regarding the children wearing white:
When Queen Wilhelmina died, her daughter, Queen Juliana and her adult grand-daughters (including Crown Princess Beatrix) all wore white. The queen wanted a white funeral because it represented the entrance into heaven. Her hearse and coffin and horses were all in white.

Queen Juliana's funeral followed the same.

Maybe this is a reflection of a family tradition in some way? Just a thought.

I'm affected by Friso's death and the grief of his Family like everyone else. It's so sad and the pain and loss is chiselled in the faces poor Mabel and Beatrix. However what's worse IMO is the plain truth that Prince Friso would still be alive had he not ventured into avalance prone areas against better advice, and it will probably haunt the Dutch RF for years.

that is for the family of Florian Moosbrugger to bear, as it was he who survived the accident because he wore a safety airbag.

How crushingly, crushingly sad.

My heart breaks for the entire family, but in particular, Mabel, Luana, Zaria and Beatrix.

This is very sad. They all looked composed but terribly, terribly sad. I feel deeply for them, especially Mabel and her daughters obviously.
