Is it true that Queen Wilhelmina refused to go to the reburial of Willem V because she thought he was weak? Very curious for a woman who had to flee to England herself, somewhat simular to Willem V´s flight.

From this wikipedia page:

Quote:
The Goejanverwellesluis is a lock in Hekendorp, Netherlands. The 'Goejannen' - the men from the surrounding polders who went to sea - said their last farewells by this channel.
According to the tradition, Wilhelmina of Prussia, wife of stadholder William V was captured here on 28 June 1787 by the Patriots from Gouda. In reality, her entourage were arrested at Bonrepas on the river Vlist, on the way to Schoonhoven near Haastrecht. Wilhelmina was at a farm overhanging the Goejanverwellesluis, where Cornelis Johan de Lange, commander of the free corps of Gouda, had been billeted. Informed of her plans by the gentleman Martinus van Toulon, old-baljuw of Gouda, the Commission of Defense stopped her from driving on to Gouda that night. The princess left the very same evening after 10pm in the direction of Schoonhoven and turned back to her spouse stadholder William V at Nijmegen. This event formed the main reason for the Prussians' raid into Holland, with Frederick William II of Prussia coming his sister Wilhelmina's aid and so making possible William's return to the Hague. This raid led to an exodus of the Patriots from the United Republic of the Seven Netherlands in 1787.
By Goejanverwellesluis lay a foot ferry that in 1992 was replaced by a bridge, the Wilhelmina van Pruisen Bridge.

And from www.hetgeheugenvannederland.nl, caricature about the patriots who arrested princess Wilhelmina. The patriots were dressed in farers clothing and had the faces of frogs:



The two frogs on the left are shooting at a portrait of the stadholder.

Today the first edition of the book: 'Willem V & Wilhelmina van Pruisen. De laatste stadhouders van Amsterdam’ was presented to the press. The book ahs been written by Edwin van Meerkerk, who works for the Radboud University in Nijmegen.

The articles in the press refer to the late Queen Wilhelmina, who called her ancestor a 'sufferd' and who refused to attend his reburial in Delft in 1958 for that reason.

I believe it was Princess Mary Frederik wanted to marry, but the King wouldn't authorize their marriage because her elder sisters were still unwed (or so he said)
