Perhaps because the greek army threw him out of Greece.

Perhaps what laurentien wore could be discribded as elegant but I do not care for that particular kind of elegance at a funeral.
Maxima probably opted for a plain and simple look wich suits her as the protestant crown princess

(& laurentien elegant?? only a half year ago she went bra-less to the ball at the wedding of the crownprince of denmark with mary)

I saw Aimee and Anita the girlfriends of Pieter-Chritiaan and Floris walking in the church.They were seated behind their princes. This could be like a confirmation of all engagement rumours.
Am I right?

They've been going to private family events for some years now.
Before Mabel was engaged to JF and Claus died she was invited into the vault for the final internment too.

Just because Laurentien has made some fashion mis steps doesn't mean that she cant turn herself around and pull off a good outfit now and then. You can't judge her forever because of one bad fashion decision.

perfectly true. I just can not see her turning around this time.
(if we all had the same opinion it would be a very boaring forum)

There are pictures of her at the wedding, many of them. If you look back at the older threads of Princess Laurentien from May, you should find them. Or else look in the Some Old, Something New... forum for the Frederik and Mary wedding thread and I'm sure that you will find them there as well.

After the funeral

What happened after the funeral? Here there is normally a tea or something so people can gather, talk & offer condolences in person. Did the family get together and relax after a stressfilled day? Did all the royal dignitaries meet after with the family?

I was in total sadness during the funeral service which I saw for the first time through live streaming NOS last Saturday. It was truly unspeakable and indescribable. I was sreaming at the screen saying "don't leave us, Prince Bernhard" upon watching his coffin was being brought into the royal vault. This feeling is not easy to bear. That was the saddest moment I ever saw on royalty. It is not easy to lose him. I PRAY THAT HE WILL REST PEACEFULLY IN ETERNITY. GOODBYE PRINCE BERNHARD.
