Autographed Photo Princess Juliana, Prince Bernhard, & Family

New to the forum, but i wanted to get this out there so i could find out some more info. I found this picture yesterday at a very "unique" back woods antique shop in Pennsylvania. It was buried under some other photos and i was instantly drawn to it. The lady who owned the shop & sold it to me had no idea what it was, or even where it came from. Apparently she had never seen it before. She was very "spiritual" and felt like i was meant to have this. Not exactly sure why but...hey i never mess with fate. I offered her $4 and with that i owned the picture. After i did some digging on the internet i found out that it is Princess Juliana, Prince Bernhard, & daughters Beatrix, Irene, baby Margriet. I believe that the photo was taken on March 9, 1943, at the families Ottawa Canada home. I know this because I found an Associated Press photo that appeared to be from the same shoot.

What makes this photo unique is that it appears to have been signed by both Juliana and Bernhard. There is a third signature in the bottom right hand corner of the photo but i am un able to make it out. The photo is in average- good condition and both signatures are visible and in good shape. I have found very few autographs and or signatures for these two. Other than Juliana's "official photo" which has her autograph.

Other than what i have read yesterday and today, I know very little about this couple and their family. I would like to somehow authenticate this for i feel it is a interesting piece. Any info on this picture would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance
