Thanks Tina very much for the picture of Annette; I had not seen a picture of her at the funeral either.

She does indeed look very nice and very appropriate for such a solemn occasion.

yes, I like annette and marilene, the wife of maurits more than the entirely different laurentien and mabel.

(but I know a woman who is in the same age group as they are and she dislikes them intensely, because they are too perfect, too sweet and low key, there is always something someone does not like)

I do agree that the appearances of Marilene and Annette was much better than Laurentien and Mabel's appearances at the wedding -- although in Mabel's defence she is pregnant and further along than Marilene, so it might've been difficult to find appropriate yet nice maternity clothes for the occasion.

Unfortunately, as I like Princess Margriet's daughter-in-laws very much, they (and hopefully soon Anita and Aimee) will never be as high profile as Maxima, Laurentien and Mabel. I wish they were however, as I enjoy them very much whenever I see them out and about whether it be Queensday or more solemn occasions such as this one.

they are probably happier, allowed to lead a normal life and they seem to me less frantic to be loved by the public.

re mabel, if you saw her on tv she looked at the camara's now and then (do they see me being upset??). I do not know, she is definitely intelligent, the rest is up in air.
a very nice man I know said "het is geen goed meisje", (she is not a good girl)Or maybe she is just very misundestood and unlucky in the way things seem.

this is not about bernard at all.........

It's funny that the women/girlfriends of Maurits, Bernhard jr., Pieter-Christiaan and Floris (all sons of Margriet) all have brown hair and Willem-Alexander, John Fristo & Constantijns wifes have all blond hair

dutch newspapers commented on the fact that maxima toned her blondness down after her engagement to willem alexander and that she might have been advised to. Her personality is quite vibrant enough for the dutch.

I never saw it so clearly untill now but it is true.
There is nothing you can say about it, you can only reflect on the fact.
traditionally men like blonds because it reminds them of innocence and sun.

The emotion on all of their faces is overwhelming isn't? Especially Maurits, Marilene and Floris in this one. Bernhard was clearly the patriarch of his family and was very much loved by them.

Thank you for these pictures purple_platinum.
