A very happy and lovely couple who is very near of Princess Beatrix, they half her when she was queen and when Claus was ill.and her sons were too young to attend the public events.

I found a video about the christening of Constantin and Berhnard, they were christened the same day

I wonder why Bernhard uses the surname van Oranje on Instagram and not van Vollenhoven

Prince Maurits mentioned that they learned from they father to persist and not give up. WHile their mother raised them with the idea of always being there for another person.

Prince Floris hoped that his parents would work less, so they will ahve more time for other things and each other.

Princess Margriet's sons use "van Oranje" because their full surname is "van Oranje-Nassau, van Vollenhoven", and in the Netherlands the custom is to use the first segment of an overlong name.
