The New Church & Royal Mausoleum, Delft

From this wikipedia page:

Quote:
Nieuwe Kerk (English: New Church) is a landmark church in Delft, the Netherlands. The building is located on Delft Market Square (Markt), opposite to the Delft City Hall (Dutch: Stadhuis). In 1584, William the Silent was entombed here in a mausoleum designed by Hendrick and Pieter de Keyser. Since then members of the House of Orange-Nassau have been entombed in the royal crypt. The latest are Queen Juliana (Queen of the Netherlands from 1948-1980) and her husband Prince Bernhard in 2004. The private royal family crypt is not open to the public.

The Royal Crypt at Delft will be expanded to twice the present size,as was planned for quiet some time already.It is nor exactly sure when the work will start,the church prefers to have it all done at the same time as the planned restauration of the church,which seems logical,but ah,logic is not the best point in "The Hague" (government),they haven't given the go ahead yet,but do plan to have the work on the crypt started sooner.

As of next week the Nieuwe Kerk and the Royal Mausoleum in Delft will be under extensive renovation work for the next 3 years.It wasn't mentioned in as many words that the mausoleum will be extended but that is very likely also one of the major works.The coffins already had been "re-shuffled" a few years ago but it didn't really create more space for future generations to join the ancestors.

Where do the Dutch bury their non-monarch royals? Is there a Dutch version of Frogmore? I realize this probably has not happened for some time since Whilhemina and Juliana were only children, but it will come up for Beatrix's sisters and WA's brothers at some point.

Yes, that's a good question. I would also like to know that if anyone has information.

Wilhelmina were not the only child. Her elder half brothers (all died before her) are buried in Delft as well.

There is no Duth version of Frogmore, but the Dutch RF only had one side branch, namely that of prince Frederik and Princess Louise of Prussia. Their two sons died very young. It is suspect however that Pieter and Margriet will be burried in Apeldoorn on the estate of palace het Loo.

The Nassau-Dietz branch was mainly burried in the Great or Jacobin church in Leeuwarden though some are in the Stiftskirche in Diez, the Dillenburgs are mainly in the Stadtskirche in Dillenburg and Siegens in the fürstengruft in the Unteres Schloss in Siegen. The Nassau-Hadamars are burried in the fürstengruft of the fransiscan church in Hadamar Earlier Nassau-Breda's in Great (or Our Lady) church of Breda. Nassau-Lalacq and Nassau-Woudenberg are burried in the 'ruin' church in Bergen and the Nassau-Ouwerkerk and some of the Nassau-Lalecq branch are in the vault of the reformed church of Ouderkerk aan de IJssel.

Only Beatrix and the present King and Queen and probably their eldest daughter,as she is the Heir and future Queen,will be buried at Delft.But the sisters of Princess Beatrix will not be interred in Delft.Princess Margriet and Pieter already have their vault ready on the Het Loo Palace grounds just beyond the Palace gardens,more or less in their own backyard.It is their wish,always was,to be interred in the nature.An underground mausoleum was build by them there and I posted pics of that at the time too....Princesses Irene and Christina have their own ideas on where to be buried.Irene's preference is on her estate in South Africa,Christina's is unknown but she doesn't fuss much either.

If W-A's brothers will be interred in Delft remains to be seen,Constantijn and Laurentien don't fuss either.But the present mausoleum will now be enlarged for the future generations of Monarchs...God willing...

And also,with the present works well on their way now they will have to see to it this time that a good solution will be found and implemented against the time and time again flooding of the place...with caskets floating so Anna Pavlowna floats past Queen Juliana in a sort of unwanted maritime party.
