I'm a little confused - the revamped version of the official website for the royal family says that Margriet is chair of the standing commission of the International Red Cross (see http://www.koninklijkhuis.nl/english...?objectid=5538). But didn't she give that position up in December 2003? Was she recently re-elected?

Has anyone heard any news about Margriet? I hope that the healing process is going well, and that she is feeling much, much better these days.

Since there aren't any new pictures of Margriet (& we may not see her until her son's wedding next month), I thought I would post some retrospective photographs of the princess.

Most of the following photos are taken from a collection of royal postcards that the Royal National Dutch Library has digitized. (See http://www.geheugenvannederland.nl/g...6-4F8396BCEF6C)


It is a wonderful collection! There are over 4000 postcards (including close to 600 of Margriet).

The beginning years: Canada

  1. January 1943 Margriet at the Ottawa Civic Hospital with her mother Princess Juliana. The Parliament of Canada passed a special law declaring Princess Juliana's rooms at the hospital as extraterritorial so that her child would have exclusively Dutch and not dual nationality.
  2. June 29th 1943 Margriet with her parents on the occasion of her baptism at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Ottawa. Among her godparents were Franklin D. Roosevelt and Great Britain’s Queen Mary.
  3. October 1943 Posing for the royal family’s Christmas greeting card, Margriet is already at ease dealing with photographers.
  4. Summer 1944 Taking a break in Cape Cod, Massachusetts with her mother and sisters Beatrix and Irene.
  5. 1945 Ottawa
  6. 1945 Beatrix, Margriet, Juliana and Irene pose in Ottawa.
  7. Summer 1945 With the war in Europe over, Juliana and her daughters prepare to return to the Netherlands. Here, they are pictured in New York City, just before boarding the ship that will take them home.
  8. August 2nd 1945 Clutching a cherished doll, Margriet sets foot on Dutch soil for the first time.
Photos from: Albert VanderMey’s When Canada was home.

Thanks for the update Dutch Royal!:) I hadn't heard anything about Margriet, but didn't know if that was because I am living so far away from the Netherlands. Yes, I hope she is feeling very good by the time the wedding comes around. I imagine that all of the planning for the two weddings this year are keeping her very busy!

None of Princess Margriet's grandchildren seem to resemble her very much while Amalia looks a lot like her father and grandmother the Queen. Or does anyone think that Margriet and one of her grandchildren does resemble her?

Thank you for the pictures by the way.

Dutch Royal, Gabriella, Genevieve and Lynn - glad you enjoyed the pictures. I imagine that Dutch members of this forum have seen them all countless times before, but they were new to me, and I was hoping that non-Dutch posters would not have seen most of them before either. And I just love the old black and white pictures ...

I will post one last set ... I ran out of time (& patience) yesterday!

I don't really see any resemblance between Margriet and her grandchildren either ... but maybe as they grow up, this will change.

If anything, I think some of the grandchildren, with their fair hair, look like their paternal grandfather Pieter - especially Lucas when he was younger.

Margriet and Pieter attended the Nationaal Hippisch Saluut, along with the Queen today. (It is so nice to see Margriet appears to back in good health again after breaking her tailbone).

... and some more pictures from Apeldoorn today (Colourpress)

It looks like Margriet might have decided to stand up for awhile, to perhaps ease the strain on her back? Anyways, she looks very good dressed up in the national colours.
