Prince Claus was such an asset to Queen Beatrix and to the Royal House. A very sensitive and gentle man yet very passionate about causes he believed in and he appeared to me to be very intelligent yet quite modest and quietly accepting his role in being husband to the Queen. A complete opposite of Prince Bernhard.
The Netherlands lost a wonderful man when Prince Claus died.

Prince Claus thanking his wife, during the prince claus award ceremony in 1999:

NOS Nieuws - Prins Claus bedankt zijn vrouw Beatrix

these kind of things made him the most beloved member of the RF at the end of his life.

Some more moments:

Thank you Marengo, the videos show how this humble man endeared himself to the people. The video of Claus thanking his Beatrix had me a little teary and Beatrix's response was heartwarming.

I never realised that he was 12 years older than Beatrix until now.

Yes he was, and I also find that his son prince willem Alexander looks very much like his father.

I have seen so many videos and have never seen him put a toe wrong. He was such an elegant man. Down to earth and a loving father and husband. I, too, see quite clearly that he and Beatrix were so in love. My heart aches for her that he was gone too soon.

Ten years ago Prince Claus died in the AMC hospital in Amsterdam.

An article with picture from the Reformatorisch Dagblad:
