No.It is not proven,and even if it was today,she would not be included retro or in any other way.And she isn't after that either.
Just another try by some author,or calling himself that,to make a buck over the back of the dead.Cheap...

Reading the story in the papers i would say it is not a surprise that van der linden reached this conclusion. Four different sources confirmed it. The lady in question and her husband Joop seem respectable and nice people. The couple has 6 children.

She can not claim anything since she was legally adopted and had parents already. She says that her parents were wonderful so i doubt that she will denounce them. .

btw alexia lejeune now lives in london and seems to have expositions of her photography work once in a while.

Can we assume that the prince was not aware of her existence since he did acknowledge her like his did his other 2 illegimate daughters?

Neither Mildred nor the author of the book believe that Benrhard knew about it. Or perhaps he didn't want to know of course.

The interview on Knevel & van den Brink:

Player omroep.nl

Apparently it was Annejet van der Zijl who first traced down Mildred. She wrote a very succesful biography of the prince. She gave the info. to Marc as she said that this 'was not her style'.

Interestingly enough Marc van der Linden claims that prince Bernhard himself was the one who made sure that the press got the first picture of the prince and Alexia, as he thoguht it was time that people knew....

Van der Linden was too defensive IMHO. Basically he says that the lack of sources is the readers problem, not his...

According to author Thomas Ross, Pricne Bernhard had a 4th extramarital daughter. He will reveal the identity in his next book 'De Schaduw contra de Schorpioen' that will be out for sales next week. A cheap publicity stunt is very likely IMHO, Ross has not been very accurate in previous books and seems to mix phantasy and reality. Apart from that he is a dedicated republican and one of the most ardant haters of the late prince Bernhard.

Anyway, let's see what evidence comes up with.

Does anyone really care anymore if Bernhard took his role as "father of the nation" overly seriously, lol, ? Would it be considered scandalous at this point of time? Would it damage the monarchy under Queen Beatrix?

Not really, he is generally seen as an old crook so an extra child here and there or another financial scandal wouldn't surprise anybody indeed.
