It was in an article in 'De Telegraaf'.
She is always like that. i remember that during the statevisit to Thailand she joined her master of the ceremonies, Mr Gilbert Monod de Froideville and they visited a graveyard for victims of the Japanese. The father of Mr Monod de Froideville was burried there as well.

Yes, it's a very beautiful tiara, although I don't like the dress very much.
