He is a mess! Doesn't he realize he has no sense of credibility? Oh, I am sorry...of course he doesnt. He is not a rational being. I am sure Margarita is ruing the day she met and married the man! He is like a bad penny.

The article in dutch (provided by Joris on the Benelux royals MB):

http://www.propriacures.nl/archief.php?artikelid=500

I have read the article and am completely unimpressed.

The fake baron points his arrows first at the biographer of Queen Wilhelmina (Professor Cees Fasseur). According to de Roy the professor claims he could write in all liberty about the RF but Edwin claims that The Queen made him change several passages. Not to shocking IMO, and Edwin gives no other evidence the that he heard this from his wife.

The he goes on about the refusal of the goverment to open the files on the constitutional crisis whiaround faithhealer Greet Hofmans. According to Edwin Prince Bernhard created this as an hoax, to cover up 3 letters of himself that he wrote to Himmler and Hitler in 1942. Again, Edwin has no other sources then ´my wife told me´. He gives no insight about what was written in those letters though.

-

A terribly weak article, not worth the paper on which it is printed IMO, no evidence whatsoever! I am also annoyed by the language Edwin uses, he goes out of his way to use as many ´difficult´ words and intelligent sentenses as possible, so he can appear clever. IMO it only makes the article tedious to read and shows that he is a snob (my professors would definately make me change something like this).

The fake baron doesn´t use ANY evidence or sources (other then his wife, who of course will deny this all) and uses the foornotes not to show where he got the information but to enlighten us that he is related to the wife of professor Fasseur.

Also creepy: he talks about ´my wife´ all the time.

I just saw the 8 o´ clock news, apparently the police is looking for him due to something Margarita reported to them. It has nothing to do with the tapes he is supposed to have stolen or other things related to the other members of the RF, it is strictly personal.

He has to report before monday, otherwise he will be arrested.

According to SBS6 programme ´shownews´ sombody has broken into the car of Edwin de Roy van Zuydenwijn today. They showed video images of an old white shabby Volkswagon with a smashed-in window. The car was parked in front of the house oif his mother. The programme said they did not know if anything was stolen from the car.

This events after their divorce would be funny if they weren't so sad.

Why doesn't this man just move on. No one in the royal family would bother him. Its really rather pathetic.

'De Telegraaf' opened with the headline 'De Roy ruins princess'

Apparently Princess Margarita is fnancially ruined by her husband. According to the article the couple loaned 230.000 euros for their wedding and the castle in France that they owned was completely covered by a morgage of 1.2 million euros. According to the newspaper in 2001 she still owned 800.000 euros, and now almost nothing is left. The couple also still have a debt at Van Lanschot Bankers of 800.000 euros.

Can't say I'm terribly surprised..I suspect however that the bulk of that money went to the heaps of lawyers they employed during their quixotic fight against the DRF..

Frankly, I don't only think de Roy is an idiot, but, his ex (?) wife also deserves part of the blame, for letting him get away with all this. Ugh what a mess.

Fellow poster Lucien posted this information at the Benelux Royals MB. As it wasn't reposted here I took the liberty of doing that:

'[Court will rule the divorce case of Princess Margarita and EdRvZ on november 8th.Mid january the whole case has to be settled,the whom gets what and why not......
source:Eenvandaag. '

Finally, that was about time. Maybe this will shut him up...
Sorry for me putting this so bluntly, but this de Roy guy is really tiresome... he get's way too much attention, imo...

EdRvZ completely ruïned

Edwin de Roy van Zuydewijn is really completely ruïned. He lives from money provided by family and friends and has to hide for lawyers and bailiffs.

He already predicted it: the Netherlands are a democracy, but the Orange-Nassaus not for nothing have succesfully been the premier family since 1403. Their influence is everywhere. According to him it is totally out of fear for the Queen's wrath that no one dares it to employ him, do business with him, etc. He even has no bank account anymore.

Well I certainly wouldn't wish ill will on anyone, Edwin's complete and utter ruin is his own doing really. If he is considered totally unemployable, is hiding from lawyers and other court officials, has no bank account or anything else, then it's his own fault for having carried out a vendetta against the Dutch royal family for so many years when it was clear at a certain point that his allegations were completely false. A more sensible person would've dropped the ridiculous crusade against the Queen, Prince Bernhard, Margarita and the rest of the royal family a long time ago.

Didn't Edwin and Margarita live somewhere in France when this scandal broke out? Can't Edwin go back to France and get a job there? And if his family and friends of his family are wealthy enough to support him financially through this, then why can't one of them get him a job? Or do they not completely trust Edwin, too?

I couldn't have said it better, you express my thoughts entirely. If I were DeRoy, I'd go where no one knew my name. Britain? France? Germany? something like that. Thing is though, the guy is so delusional, to me it seems he's bordering on..well..not sure what to call it and I'm not a doctor..but something isn't right with him, mentally. If he can't hold down a job in the Netherlands, he might also run into trouble in whatever country he goes to next. Bottom line: I think he's an idiot and that's why he has the problems he does. It's all pretty sad and tragic if you think about it.

Quick question though: what is Margarita up to these days, professionally? What is she spending her days doing? Is she working? I read somewhere that at least in terms of men, she's moved on & has a new boyfriend. Anyone know more about this?

Interesting in the 'Margarita-affair'

I understand that all the attention is on 'poor sheep Margarita' and 'brutal wolf Edwin'. Sensation, scandal, etc.

But THE most interesting thing of the whole affair was that a complete machinery of state went into working, totally without any knowledge of the responsible ministers and initiated by the royal court.

It is often said that Queen Beatrix is a powerful monarch. However her formal power is pretty limited by the constitution. But her informal power, something which is very hard to categorize in words, is totally outshining her formal power. The 'Margarita-affair' shockingly brought it to the surface.

The director of the Kabinet der Koningin (the Queen's Cabinet Office) asked the director of the General Intelligence- and Security Service to investigate Edwin de Roy van Zuydewijn.

Then the General Intelligence- and Security Service made telephone taps, intercepted letters to and from Edwin de Roy van Zuydewijn. They asked for the cooperation of the Royal- and Diplomatic Protection Service, from the Amsterdam Police Corps, from the Amsterdam social security service, from the Tax Revenue Service, they asked for cooperation from the Queen's Treasurer (who also manages Princess Margarita's finances) and they requested banks, companies and other institutions to provide information.

All these institutions, services, departments and companies were immediately willing to cooperate. No one, I repeat: no one, dared it to refuse cooperation because there was no any proper ground for these deep examinations and violation of citizen's rights and privacy.

Then a thick report was made. Top secret. And who was given -unlawfully- insight in this report?
Grandfather Prince Bernhard...
Father the Duke of Parma (not even a Dutchman)...
Brother Prince Carlos...

Thát was the shocking revelation of the whole affair: that a certain lady named Q.B. can raise her eyebrows in her cabinet at Noordeinde Palace and immediately a giant machinery sets itself in movement to fullfil her requests.

In the meantime the premier and the minister of the Interior conscientuously answered Parliament: "No, there are no investigations to mr. De Roy van Zuydewijn..."

That was the shocking revelation. That such a formidable power came to the surface and became visible for all Dutchmen.

Are you really shocked by finding out the Queen has this power? I have always thought she's a very strong headed lady, who can be lovely at times as long as she gets her way. Don't get me wrong, I like her very much and think she's a great Queen, but I'm totally not surprised by her mingling in some business the Dutch people aren't aware of, especially when it comes to business concerning her family. I mean, don't we all? When there's a problem in a family, most of us start covering up things and checking people out in all kinds of ways. She just has more powerful instruments at hand than most of us do.

Well, it came to the surface, that's true. But I always had this feeling that the power was already there, so the revelations of the couple did not really surprise me...

That's why I find Edwin so totally and utterly annoying, btw. He's not telling me something which makes me go 'Eeek!' or 'Whaaat?!' He's just telling utter nonsense and if I want to hear utter nonsense, I just turn on my tv and I get loads of that...

Let us be realistic here. What 'power' are we speaking of? Opening a few records of the public service of Amsterdam? Sure, it wasn't their right to see them & measures should be taken to avoid repetition, but to say that it was shocking and showing how much power the Queen has is a bit to much (as in the words are to strong) IMO.

To say how the RF has ruined Edwin is a bit dubious to, at the very least. I think Edwin did most of the damage to Edwin. If he wouldn't have been so completely delusional the serious press would have taken up his pledge much more fervently then they are doing now. Having that said, I wouldn't be surprised if some in the RF or their network is working against Edwin dRvZ, but as I said, most damage has been done by himself in all these interviews (where he seemed a mentally disturbed person).

-

To awnser Olga: I sometimes see pictures of Masrgarita in the boulevard press. She has a new relationship now but tries to stay in the background. She is accepted back in the family on public events (how far the wounds are healed and how far it is about PR we do not know). She is probably still working as an interior decorator, as she did before and during her marriage, no new information about that has been released.
