The most emotion I have ever seen shown by a royal family was at Princess Grace's funeral. It was televised here in the US and you could clearly see how devastated the entire family was. I thought Prince Rainier was going to collapse while following behind her coffin :(

Well that was not shown, but their emotion is absolutely understandable. Poor boys...:(

I don't think it's fair to call people in mourning too emotional. If they weren't royal, they would be able to mourn in private like everyone else. I find it sad that they are forced to live out their grief in the public eye in such a way.

Who is the woman next to Maxima? Maxima is holding her by the waist? Is she Prince Bernhard's other daughter?

I think it's nice to see emotion from Royals because it shows they are human.

Another VERY emotional Royal is Stephanie.... Stephanie cries at the drop of a hat... I was looking for a picture of her crying at the Circus a couple of years ago but I couldn't find it.

Those pictures are just so sad. My heart aches for Beatrix and her family right now. I have always found her to be very endearing; she really does seem to wear her heart on her sleeve, whether she's happy, sad or angry. At times you can see that mischevious spark in her eye. I agree with the others, watching royals display emotion makes you realize that they too are humans with feelings. It makes people seem less removed from you when you see them display a universal emotion, whether it be happiness or sadness.

In these pics,they look very human.Although they are Royals they also have the same emotion as everybody at the time a family member will "leave" them for ever.

Princess Stephanie cried back in 2000's International Circus Festival's closing night because Prince Rainier couldn't attend since he was very ill in the hospital. One year later in 2001, she cried at the St. Devote ceremony and those pictures were all over the press...a lot of things were said at the time...

The Grimaldi family was devastated at Princess Grace's funeral, even when you watch footage from the funeral you get sad, it was so sad, and even people who actually attended the funeral recall it as one of their saddest days. Stefano Casiraghi's funeral was another sad moment for them, Princess Caroline was very devastated. Her father and siblings were also shocked by the tragedy.

When Fadime Sahindahl, a girl who was murdered by her father for wanting to live "a swedish" life, was buried in 2002?, Victoria showed alot of emotions at her funeral.
I think a video of it is online... I´ll see if I can find it!

Also, all members of the swedish royal family cried both at the funeral of Prince Bertil in 1997 and at their german grandmother Alice´s funeral in march 1997

I think the posting of this picture borders on voyerism (voyeur: someone who enjoys watching other people's private behaviour or suffering) and is almost indecent.

One could argue that any pictures posted here, at other MBs and Web sites and in magazines or on the news could be considered voyeurism, too, at least by your definition of it. And from what I have read no member has expressed happiness or elation at seeing various royals in some of their saddest moments; in fact it has been the exact opposite: members have been saddened to see royals in such pain and experiencing such sorrow.

Voyeurism is also technically defined as obtaining gratification from seeing sexual acts by visual means (as in a peeping tom of sorts) or a prying observer who seeks the sordid or the scandalous.

As the majority if not all of these pictures were taken at public, official funeral processions and services, it can hardly be considered "prying." No one here directly and personally used a long-lens camera to zoom in on Prince Bernhard's home and captured images of his daughters and grandchildren crying. The transporation of his body was a public event, just as the funeral service for King Hussein was a public event.
