I have rediscovered the Alexanderpalace again: http://forum.alexanderpalace.org and came across several great pictures of Dutch palaces, some of which I will repost here.

The pictures were originally posted by their fellowposter Thijs and come from his own collection of books, most probably form the series 'In Naam van Oranje'.

Here pictures of Soestdijk Palace, Baarn.

Main Hall of Soestdijk Palace, not the portrait of Prince Bernhard on the right:

:

Another picture of the hall, with a portrait of Queen Emma:




And another one, with on the right a painting of Prince Hendrik 'the navigator', son of King Willem III:



And the last one of this hall:

The weaponroom. The cannons were originally turned inside, but after the Lockheed affair either Juliana or Bernhard ordered them to be turned to the outside. Queen Juliana used this room for reunions with her student yearclub:

Queen Emma used a shorter chair when she dined in the white dining room as she had short legs. To see the difference the chair was marked with a crowned 'E':

Courtesy HJA.

Soestdijk Palace as it is now.

Onder;" Laatste Berichten" on the right,see "Honderdduizendste bezoeker Soestdijk".

Hans wrote that article you'll find almost a year ago and made the accompanying pics of how the Palace,or much of it,looks today.

Villa Vogelhof near palace Soestdijk that was the property of Prince Bernhard has been sold for 1,5 million euros to Ruud Bakhuizen (no 78 in the list of richest dutch people according to quote magazine). The profits will be shared among the 4 legal daughters only, the other two were already 'bought out'.
The villa used to house Mme Cocky Gilles, the private secretary of prince Bernhard.

It was announced today that the Palace will remain open to the public throughout 2010.The Rijksgebouwendienst has not yet decided on the future use of the Palace.Since the opening over 300.000 people have visited the former home of Queen Juliana and Prince Bernhard.

It was announced today that the Palace will definitely close its doors for the public after 2010 and will be converted into a scientific institute.

Calls to destine it to be a museum were not answered except that we already have a Museum of the Orange Nassau´s with Het Loo Palace.

Personally,I do not like the solution one bit.The Palace is a place for Royals to return to,not nerds.
