Thank you Princess Beatrix. Nice pictures. The second one of the couple holding hands is touching.

I guess the paparazzi were chasing the royals around way back n the 60s.

Well, it actually was quite new over here, back then. I saw a documentary about these pics only recently.
They showed the editor of some Dutch paper (I don't quite recall which paper it was) to whom the pics were shown first, with the question if they could be published. The editor refused it, because it was just 'not done' in those times to publish that kind of pics. I don't quite recall which paper finally decided to publish them (I thought it was a British tabloid), but several Dutch papers refused to publish it (I think they were afraid of prince Bernhard, or something like that :p). So funny!

afraid of Prince Bernard? Funny thought.
I even heard that one newspaper-reporter found out the telephonenumber of Claus and called him after he saw the pictures the first time.
They called him and asked: "are you the boyfriend of Beatrix?" after he answered "Yes" they decided to put the photo in their newspaper

I never heard that story, princess beatrix. But it took days for the press to find out who the guy on the pictures actually was, all european media was trying to identify him. And when they did all hell broke loose.

I don't think the media was afraid of Prince Bernhard only, but of the establishment in general. Maybe afraid is not even the right word for it, but they considered it as lack of respect to publish such things. The crisis about Greet Hofmans (faithhealer of Queen Juliana) in the 50's was also never published in the dutch press, but first in a British paper (leaked by Prince Bernhard), the german press followed but the dutch rpess remained silent, untill the goverment installed a comittee of 3 wise men to solve it.

I was joking about Bernhard! Didn't expect you guys to take me seriously! :)
I think it was just as Marengo said, the Dutch press thought it not appropriate to publish the pictures. Hard to imagine these days, isn't it? (I guess that tells us more about our own standards than about the standards in those days... )

Why would Prince Bernhard leak something private about his wife to the press?

It is quite proven he leaked the information. Apparently because he thought Juliana's pascifist inclinations (which were encouraged by Greet Hofmans) were damaging for the country. He thought that this way the gouverment had to solve the situation instead of ignoring it.

After the crises was solved Greet was send away from court and some courtiers who supported Juliana as well. Juliana and Bernhard both started living in seperate wings of the palace and leading mostly seperate lives. According to some Bernhard was actually planning to get his wife locked up in the Ursula clinic in Wassenaar and made her declared unfit to rule. That way he could be regent untill his daughter Beatrix came of age.

A courtier later told in a televisionprogramme that in those days Juliana and Bernhard were so estranged from each other that Juliana was afraid to collect her husband from the airport, when he came back from an economic mission, as she feared he would ignore her completely in front of the camera (which he did not).

An important detail: it was Prince Bernhard himself who introduced Greet Hofmans to Juliana, as the couple was desperately seeking a way to cure their nearly blind daughter Marijke (now: Christina).

Wow that's a heavy Story!
I knew that this gret hofman-story was quiet a scandal and that there were huge problems... but I didn't know that it was soo heavy!

(is there a discussion in the Royal Scandals Go Dutch thread? I think it belongs better to there )
