I think Guillaume and Sybilla of Luxembourg are close to Constantijn and Laurentien of The Netherlands, they attended the baptisms of both Eloise as Claus-Casimir.
Laurentien is also friends with Martha-Louise of Norway, she is the godmother of Leah-Isodora.

Erm... I don't think so; Nicholas II and George V met only once as monarchs, in Germany in 1913. After the Russian revolution George V objected to granting asylum in the United Kingdom to the Romanovs.

But they would have met at the Fredensborg gatherings when they were children, wouldn't they?

I also recall reading something in a biography about Queen Mary that the Russian family came over to George and Mary's wedding, and Nicholas got a haircut from George's barber and a suit from where George had his suits made, so that they looked frighteningly alike. There was also a picture taken of them, I think.

I've got a 1909 photo of them standing side by side and dressed identically in the book about George V--they are look-alikes! :)

Nonetheless, you don't cut your best friend dead when he needs your help... George V did just that.

I think it is odd that Princess Anne of England is friends with Camillia's ex-husband. They were once lovers. I read in Royalty Magazine that they are friends. They even had a photo of them hanging out!

Prince Claus was not that close to hendrik of Phillip, I would say Bernhard and Phillip were more alike. Claus befriended Prince Moritz of Hessen-Kassel and Richard of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg.

Queen Juliana was friends with Sybilla of Sweden, Alice of Athlone (her aunt) and Kira of Prussia (nee Russia).

I'm not sure about Maxima and Letizia. there were the photos of them chatting at Mary and Frederick's wedding but that is the only time I'm aware of that they were together. (other than Letizia's wedding but that doesn't really count)

does anyone know of other instances where they were hanging out together?

I've seen photos of the CP families of Norway and Holland together informally. it seems pretty logical for MM and Maxima to get together so that little Ingrid and Amalia can become friends.

'Willy' and 'Nicky' were quite close, I'd like to say. Partly it was solidarity between two autocrats, and partly--genuine friendship. They liked to go hunting together, they discussed everything in their numerous letters.

In 1905 the two emperors even signed a treaty of friendship on board of the Tsar's yacht, the fact that Russia was allied with France then notwithstanding. Wilhelm II was joyous--he thought that his personal diplomacy broke the union of Russia and France. Nicholas II signed the treaty, having been overawed by Wilhelm's rhetoric.

The Russian ministers were shocked. Witte, Izvolsky and Grand Duke Nicholas went to the Tsar and presssurised him into denouncing the yacht treaty (more precisely, the treaty was declared having no legal force until France's accession to it!)

Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands and King Juan Carlos and Queen Sophia of Spain:

Their friendship goes waaaaaaaay back.:) Crown Princess Margrethe of Denmark at the age of 17 (so after the succession laws were changed) and Crown Princess Beatrix age 20. The picture is from 1958.

Thans spiffy, I still remember seeing on television the Queen almost running to meet Juan-Carlos and Sofia on this occassion & hugging them. I believe Claus and Sofia could get along very well to. It was at Palace Het Loo where the queen celebrated parts of her 60th birthday. Due to a ETA bomb attack the king and quen did not find it appropriate to attend all the festivities, however, they came over for a lunch at the palace, a very sweet gesture! I also remember the Charles V celebrations in Spain where Queen Beatrix and Juan-Carlos were walking armed from a cathedral.

The picture of Margrethe and Beatrix is priceless!!! Where did you get it? I can't wait for simular pictures of Elisabeth/ Catharina-Amalia/ Ingrid Alexandra/ Leonor.

I think King Albert II is close to Juan-Carlos and Beatrix as well, they were the two monarchs he consulted when his brother, King Baudouin died (on wherther to accept the trone or cede his rights in favour of his eldest son).

What about the Luxembourg royals? I know Prince Claus tought Marie-Therese to eat oysters (which is not frienship, but it seemed sweet), as he tried to comfort her as the dutch state visit was the first one she participated in (in 1981 or 1982). I am still waiting for the state visit of the Luxembourgians to their Dutch fellow-Nassau's btw, traditionally Benelux royals would pay state visits to the other Benelux countries very ealy in their reign, most often they were the first state visits.
