From youtube, on the occassion of Queen Juliana's 70th birthday. How times have changed! 'Little children, sleep quietly, the queen looks after us day and night', can't imagine anybody singing that these days...



And 'the kiss' from Jos Brink:



And here princess Juliana thanking the Dutch public for all the good wishes she received on the occassion of her 75th birthday, saying she disappeared in an ocean of deep gratitude:

looking at this portrait, her character is clearly visible: a dreamer, someone who loves to communicate, but also not to play games with.. she knows what she wants and you wont get rid of her easy..

Prince Bernhard had his own faith healer in 1937, that was reported by 'Netwerk' tonight. He consulted the faith healer with the name Pranananda after his car accident in 1937. This sheds new light on the whole Greet Hofmans affair, in which queen Juliana was accused of being with her head in the clouds. During the war Pranananda was collaborating with the Nazi's btw.

From the NRC:

Quote:
Historians quarrel about prince's role in Indonesia coup

Published: 2 December 2009 16:20 | Changed: 2 December 2009 17:26

By Bart Funnekotter

The late prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, husband of former queen Juliana, was party to an attempted coup against the government of the young Indonesian republic in 1950, a book published this Monday asserts.
.article_related_box table { width: 225px; }

The Dutch writers, historian Harry Veenendaal and journalist Jort Kelder, base their conclusions on evidence that has been available to other researchers: archived diaries of a court secretary and military police reports describing the attempted coup d'état which mention the prince’s name in relation to the coup.
Prince Bernhard, the father of the reigning queen Beatrix, has always been a source of controversy. In 1976, after being accused of accepting bribes from the American aeroplane manufacturer Lockheed, he was stripped of his military titles. He also fathered two children with women other than his wife during their marriage.

Some documents from the national archives have been released this week, among them documents about Juliana & Bernhard. As was reported earlier, prince Bernhard was also said to be involved in a case about Northrop and not only Lockheed. The new documents seem to have more information about it.

Dutch Prince Bernhard 'was member of Nazi party' - Telegraph

Prince Bernhard, the father of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, was a member of the Nazi party, a new book has claimed, contracting the German-born Dutch war hero's life-long denials.

The book is on his German years,before his wedding and untill say 1940.

Tonight,19.20PM - 19.50PM,Ned2 aires a documentary;"Bernhard,the story of a German",on occasion of the book's "first day of light" today.

It's not so much a book on hard facts and Bernhard enthousiastically joining this or that,it's more an al most by coincidence kind of thing he joined organisations.But,he had to be a party member ofcourse to attend Gymnasium and certainly to attend University,which he did in Munich and Berlin studying Jura (Law).He dropped the memberships easily,ofcourse,and he always pointed towards his brother Aschwin as being a real Nazi.....It is as it is....

The book was presented at Soestdijk Palace this afternoon,the former residence of the late Queen Juliana and Prince Bernhard.

Prince Benrhard had two stories in the newspapers today:

1) the prince nearly got shot by a communist. This happened in 1941 when he visited the Rolls Ryce factory in the UK. A communist employee called Bernhard a 'Nazi friend' and pointed a gun to him.

This information came from a BBC website: BBC - WW2 People's War - Reminiscences of a Wartime Civilian.

Quote:
we were to have a visit by Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, who had escaped from Holland after being a notorious supporter of the Nazis, to be made a senior officer in the R.A.F., being a pilot. On the morning of the visit, one member of the gang, an acclaimed Communist, appeared with a loaded revolver, with the intention of putting an end to this fascist prince. He was disarmed with some difficulty and the royal visit proceeded without incident.
I find the story rather odd, as the prince pre-war nazi membership were unknown at the time and only came to light in the 90-ties or so. So perhaps the story is bogus.

2) The prince told psycho therapist Karin de Korte some of his dreams over a period of 8 years. She analysed them and her conclusion: the prince was afraid for the future ofthe monarchy. As the wife of former vice prime minister de Korte she visited the palace 30 times in 8 years. She has some quotes and apparently Bernhard was worried that WA wasn't married yet and had one girlfriend after another (sigh).

Cool

I find the story odd also not only because of Bernhard's pre-war nazi activity being revealed in the 90's, but if gunman had pointed a gun at HRH, that story would have gotten over the wires in no even if it was the 40's. All this time and no one else at the factory mentioned anything about the incident until now with one person's memory.............

Gerard Aalders wrote a new book on Bernhard (he seems to be an endless source of inspiration for authors and television makers btw). The book is called 'Bernhard zakenprins' (Bernhard business prince).

The author says that the government of prime minister Drees was worried about Bernhard mingling with arms dealers, shady abnkers and other dodgy business men. These connections made sure that people could black mail the prince. According to Aalders this is the reason why he needed the money from Lockheed & such.

The book will appear in the shops tomorrow.
