Where do they live?

HM the Queen lives in Palace 'Huis ten Bosch' in The Hague (near Wassenaar)

Her Majesty's workpalace/ office is Noordeinde Palace, in the center of The Hague. Janet only saw the front of the palace, which is rather small. King Willem I added some extra buildings to thepalace & it is quite large, but you can only see that from the backside.

Princess Juliana & Prince Bernhard are living at Soestdijk POalace, Baarn (almost the center of the country, near Utrecht)

Villa Eikenhorst in Wassenaar is build on grounds that once belonged to Prince Frederik (2nd son of King Willem I, father of Queen Louise of Sweden & Norway), the grounds where inherited by his 2nd daughter Marie, Princess of Wied, she sold the grounds (Raaphorst, de Horsten etc. to her niece Queen Wilhelmina) In the 80-ties Princess Christina built a villa on the estate, now it is beiing recdecorated for the Prince & Princess of Orange

Palace op de Dam is only used for ceremonial purposes, sometimes heads oof state will spent the night there during a state visit (not often though)

The Queen also owns the wonderful small Castle ''Drakensteyn' which is next to Soestdijk palace, she lived there before she became Queen. Sometimes she spent the weekends over there (not very often) and it is expected that either Johan-Friso or Constantijn will establish there with their family.

In Apeldoorn there is palace 'Het Loo', favorite resort of Queen Wilhelmina, but now used as a museum, on the estete Princess Margriet & her husband are living in a bungalow. On the same estate there is the castle 'het oude Loo' used when the family wants to hunt.

Princess Irene lives in a large house in 'Wijk bij Duurstede (below Utrecht)

Princess Juliana & Prince Bernhard have the villa 'l'elephante felice' in Porto Ercole, the owns queen an old farm in Tavernele, Tuscany.

I believe that Princess Margriet also owns a chalet in Lech.

Because Constantijn and Laurentien work there.
The same goes for Mabel and Friso, they work and live in London.

I have no pictures of their houses but Maurits and Benrhard + families both live in Amsterdam Zuid or Oud-Zuid. I believe Floris also lives in Amsterdam as do Jaime of Bourbon-Parma and his twin sister Margarita (the latter in a new neighbourhood, possible Zeeburg or IJburg). Prince Pieter-Christiaan has moved to Noordwijk (near Leiden), Mabel lives in Kensington, London while Constantijn and family are living in Brussels.
I have never seen a picture of Friso's and Constantijn's appartments though. The houses of Maurits, Bernhard, Floris and Jaime are sometimes pictured in a gossip magazine but they are not available online.

Marengo Thanks for details. I wonder, I wanted to see the photos for.

I'm sure this was asked and answered after Princess Beatrix announced her abdication, but will WA and Maxima move now that he is King or will they continue to live where they are now? Thanks

They will eventually move to Huis ten Bosh once Beatrix relocates to her private estate.

Thanks, NGalitzine, I do remember seeing the posts about Beatrix and her move but couldn't recall the rest.

The Princess now lives at Drakensteyn,but Huis ten Bosch Palace undergoes major renovations & updates,so it won't be until somewhere next year till the RF can move in.

I am a bit surprised. Prince Constantijn bought a nice house (which needs a total updo) but it is pretty un-secluded, easy accessible for anyone who wants to do them harm. I expected the "reserve King" to take up residence at the lush and green royal estate De Horsten, where the King lives in the Villa Eikenhorst.

The new princely house is a nice object with four bedrooms and three bathrooms, an annex for an office, and it is situated in the Benoordenhout area (a stately neighbourhood in The Hague), it is situated alongside a canal but I wonder what will happen to Eikenhorst? Will the King keep it apart as a future house for Princess Catharina-Amalia?

Perhaps he doesn't have enough funds to keep up an estate like the Horsten? His 3 aunts all received considerable inheritances from Q. Wilhelmina and were able to buy/build a nice place. And later they received a substantial inheritance from their parents. Prince Constantijn will most likely have less private funds at his disposal.

Of course the couple likes city-life. If not the Eikenhorst they may have found another place at the estate, like some of his cousins did. Though there was some controversy about that which they may want to avoid. I don't think that there will be many free-standing properties with big gardens and privacy available in The Hague/Wassenaar for only 990.000 euros.

Perhaps they will continue to use the Eikenhorst as an extra guest residence until CA will get married.
