On RTL boulevard I heard that Palace het Loo will open a new room which will be decorated in the style of prince Bernhard. The room will be opened on the prince's birthday (June 26?). I believe they will use some things from Soestdijk for this room.

Princess Margriet will open the restored historical viewpoints in the beautifull gardens of Het Loo Palace on june 20th.

During restauration works in 2003,the remains of a roofed terras with seating places as well as waterbassin were found.
All is restored to its former splendour.

Went to Het Loo yesterday and like the detail in the bed- and sittingroom of Juliana when she was a young girl, a vase with Lathyrus, her favorite flowers.

No no,they were part of the original design of the gardens Ann,maybe you feel different if you visit and exhale the whole place and enjoy the beauty of the total picture.

King Willem III was fond of trees, unusual plants, and seeds.
He had an arboretum at Het Loo Palace.
The landscapes of the Great Hall or Audience Chamber were painted by Johannes Glauber.
The room is also called the Abdication Room because it was here that King Willem I abdicated in 1840.
Inside, the walls of the staircase area and the main hall were painted with scenic perspectives to give the impression of being in the open.

The four main buildings at the royal domain Het Loo consist of:
- Castle Het Loo ("Het Oude Loo")
- Palace Het Loo
- House Het Loo ("Het Nieuwe Loo")
- The Royal Mews

House Het Loo is build in the early 1970's under the direction of the Amsterdam architect M. Evelein and is private property of Princess Margriet. In 1975, Princess Margriet and her family have taken up residence. The house consists of three parts: a private area, an official area and an office area where the new annexes were completed in 2010. These three parts are interconnected. The arboretum (tree garden) on which House Het Loo has a view, was built by order of King Willem III (1817-1890).

What will happen with the property when Princess Margriet and her spouse pass away? When one of her sons take up residence, it will mean that in due time a family without any royal role will live on a royal domain. I hope the King will acquire this property, it would be a fantastic house for Princess Catharina-Amalia.
