A marriage and a baby...
Great news, what a surprise!
I am very happy for Margarita and Tjalling. Wish them all the best for the future.

It's also great news that Irene will become an (official) grandmother, at last.

Now that is happy news indeed! All the best to the couple, I expect that this time there will be much more relatives that will attend Margarita's wedding than last time.

Apparently Tjalling Ten Cate works as a lawyer for the Nederlandse Bank, (the Dutch Bank) in Amsterdam. It is said the couple has been living together for a year already. Margarita is doing a course at the Royal Acadamy of Arts in The Hague.

It will be a civil wedding, in a small circle. According to RTL Boulevard they were introduced to each other by one of the van Vollenhoven princes.

How do you pronounce Tjalling's name?

Best wishes to the couple :) This will be the first recognized grandchild for Carlos and Irene, correct? I know Carlos Jr has a son, but he isn't recognized by the family, it's just that CJ acknowledges him as his son, but doesn't recognize him or something...

Was she the one who was very verbal about the RF ruining her husband's business, etc.? I vaguely remember hearing they finally got a divorce. Well, Congratulations to both of them. I hope things work out this time 'round.

The Telegraaf says that the couple announced the good news to Margarita's cousins aftyer the birthday party of Margriet and Beatrix, when they had a private gathering in the home of one of the younger royals.

According to the Telegraaf Tjalling has an older brother called Reitse, his parents are divorced and they grew up in Soest.

The groom studied law in Leiden, he was a member of the fraternity society (so probably an acquentance of Prince Floris), likes hockey, golf and sailing. His friends say he is a 'goeie lobbes' (now how to translate this?). He worked 5 years for AKD Prinsen van Wijnen and now for the Dutch bank. The couple is living together in Amsterdam Zuid.

I think Tjah-ling comes close.

Carlos Xavier has a son with Brigitte Klynstra, it was said he was the donor. The boy is called Carlos Hugo Roderik Sybren Klynstra.

He wasn't just the donor. He was her lover and dumped her when she got pregnant.
The little Carlos looks exactly like his father Carlos sr, no doubt possible.

I never heard that before actually, I always thought he was a donor. But curious that she named the child after him when he left her alone with the child, such a name would imply that the relations between them were still well at the time of the birth of the child. Does Carlos or Irene actually keep in touch with Carlos Klynstra?

He was the donor,they're still friends and both Irene and Carlos see Carlos "Jr".Bettina,you are misinformed,sorry.
