According the Dutch gossip magazines Prive and Party, the ex-husband of Princess Christina lives now together with his friend in France. They say he is gay.

WOW all the royal ladies did a wonderful job hiding their tiaras in their hair I would not hold my breath for Beatrix to change her hairstyle, but Maxima really needs to put her hair up when wearing a tiara. This is her 2. time wearing a tiara with her hair down and it just does not work very well IMO

Thanks for the pictures The Watcher. Do you know why Adrienne Clarkson and her husband are in the Netherlands. (I should probably know this!) Is it to mark the special relationship between the Dutch and Canadian people established during WWII? I saw a news report this morning about how upset Dutch war veterans were that neither the Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin or the opposition leader Stephen Harper were not appearing at special services in the Netherlands.

Superficially, what in the world is Adrienne Clarkson wearing?! Her outfit sort of reminds me of something Cruella de Ville from 101 Dalmations would wear. The Dutch ladies are very well turned out, especially Princess Margriet -- va va voom! :)

Alexandria haven't you been watching the news lately
The GG is in the Netherlands to commemorate VE day. I saw footage of her and Queen Beatrix at a ceremony to honour Canadian veterans at one of the Canadian cemeteries.
Btw...looks like the politicians have finally found some sense. Prime Minister Paul Martin and the leaders of the Conservatives, NDP, and the Bloc are going to the Netherlands, later this week I believe.
Public opinion was so disapproving of them putting petty politics ahead of the need to honour Canada's vets that the PM's office called the other leaders today and asked them to join him.

I've moved the pics I posted earlier of Queen Beatrix at the commemoration ceremony for Canadian vets to the Queen Beatrix thread since i was unable to get pictures of other Dutch royal family members at the event. Her sister, the one who was born in Canada was also there, Princess Margriet i believe.

~*~Humera~*~ you've caught me! I haven't had a chance to watch more than the morning news to catch the weather before leaving the house. But thanks for filling me in on why Adrienne Clarkson is in the Netherlands. And I'm glad to hear that Paul Martin, Stephen Harper and Jack Layton have coome to their senses and will take part in VE celebrations.

On the same piece about the Dutch vertrans being angry that none of the party leaders were going to come to the Netherlands to mark the occasion, the news reporter also added (and quite rightly, too) that as the vetrans were getting older and dying, it would be one of the last chances to speak to vetrans who had been part of the war and hear first hand accounts.

Video of Gala yesterday. There is only a video of Queen Beatrix, Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima arriving. There were no cameras allowed in the palace. The video shows the arriving of Q. Beatrix not yet dressed in Gala, and Willem-Alexander (also not yet dressed in Gala tenue). But also the arriving of Máxima and she was already wearing a gala dress.

For video:

-go to http://www.telegraaf.nl
- scroll down and click on 'Diplomaten prikken een vorkje met Beatrix' (the little picture of Beatrix)
