The book however suggests that in the 70-ties there was not to much love lost between Beatrix and Pieter.
Now I'm interested ! What did the author say was the cause of this fight?

Yes, you have a good point - physical appearances and how close one is in line of succession do likely to a large extent determine how much press attention one receives. However, I think the mere act of having a title does also mean that you are more likely to receive more press exposure. Look at the British tabloids (if you dare ). They are always talking about Lord X who has a drug problem, or Lady Y who is having an affair. Even if they are Lords & Ladies that the average Brit has never heard of, they still make it into the papers, I think mainly because they are titled. So personally, I think it is good that Margriet & Pieter's grandchildren do not have titles.

That's neat - I never heard that before. When did this happen and did it change the way Pieter is addressed?
I believe it happened one or two years ago, the order did not change anything, it is just a blue/orange sah he can use now instead of the orange one.

In the Netherlands no nobility is known actually. We have a very equalitarian society and people do not care that much about nobles, so they never feature in any magazine. Furthermore most nobles professionally do not use their titles.

I didn't read the book, but only know what was written in the press about it, so I cannot help you that much. It was not a fight however, more some slight coldness/ dislike? (NB According to the author, not me).
