I want to add one :)
Trix and Claus made a boating tour through Amsterdam during their engagement time.
Very lovely. It seems she wants to embrace him.

you're welcome, Juanita.
Yes, it's so true. :( It's very sad. They've been such a loving couple. It was so great to see how the Queen hold her husband's hand during the wedding of W-A and Máxima.

I once read in a magazine that during the time Claus had deep depressions (early 80's) he wanted to seperate from Beatrix, because he didn't want to hurt her and because he didn't want her to feel depressed just because of his problems... They must have had a hard time then...
I'm glad they passed this hard times all together. :) It was always lovely to see them both. They looked so in love , also in the late years.
(like the pic where Claus kisses the Hand of his wife):o

He had deep depressions in the 80's, after Beatrix became Queen.
I don't know the exacte cause, but I think it was because he felt senceless next to his poweful and busy wife.
I think he didn't lose his depressions completely, but it turned a bit better (don't know exactely).

Well it would have been hard for him because he probably felt 'not as good' as his wife and not as important, which was the case with Henrik of Denmark a while ago. It must be hard for the current husbands of Queens because their generation was when the men provided for the wife and family and the husband was looked up to. Of course, things now are different and couples are equal (if you're not married to a Queen), but for people in Henrik and Claus' time, it was all about the husband.

Like Prince Hendrik said (consort to Queen Wilhelmina): Ich bin nur das Gepack (I am only the luguage).

But I do not think Claus was troubled by playing the 2nd role, as he was quite modest and a true gentleman. He was troubled that he could not do something substantial once his wife became Queen. Before that he was an advisor of the minister of development aid (to the 3rd world), but he had to stop this due to some controversies risen. Once he stopped this he found it difficult to enjoy his new role, though later in life he seemed to enjoy it (and mock it at some points. I remember him opening the new ABN-AMRO headquaters where he said that cutting ribbons was his core business).
According to the Queen he was the best advisor she ever had and she consulted almost everything with her husband.

She said so herself in her last television interview, given on the occassion of her silver jubilee. But she said something simular before, in a previous one, when Claus was still alive as well.

I think Claus was able to help his wife alot. He had a huge knowledge (also because of the work he had before). I think he was very intelligent!
You can see that quite clear when you watch the Engagement-Interview! :)
(I love it!)
His answers are always very good!
I love it , when the reporter asks about Claus "former girlfriends", and he just asks the reporter for his age. :o
It's lovely to see Trix giggeling the whole time.

Since there was talk of Claus's depressions, I sort of recall hearing somewhere that at one point when Claus was going through a bad time, Beatrix stated that for the time being she would not be going on any state trips? Has anyone else heard about this?

This is a terrific thread. I've followed the Dutch royals for awhile now, and it still amazes me how affectionate Beatrix & Claus were, even in public you could tell they loved one another very deeply.
I'm sure Beatrix misses him very much. :(

Smile Kiss

http://s2.supload.com/image.php?get=...0328151142.jpg ANP
So this one is really their only "public kiss"?

They had so many loving gestures and moments, but never a real kiss in front of the cameras? That's sad (for us ).

Cool A possible kiss

I found this picture:

(Fotomarktplatz)
A possible kiss, right?
It looks like Claus kisses Beatrix on her cheek.

This is no kiss but a nosey-nosey on one of the Pacific Islands.
