The older lady next to Queen Juliana is Gosta von Amstberg, baroness von dem Bussche Haddenhausen, the mother of Prince Claus.

Here a grouppicture taken in the evening when they held a ball to celebrate the enthronement. The guests had changed clothes but you will be able to identify many more. The picture was originally posted at the Benelux RMB by John in Assen.

How would they organice things if Queen beatrix would die unexpected (like King Baoudouin I.). Would Willem-Alexander first take the oath somewhere in The Hague and the would have the Inauguration Ceremony later in Amsterdam ?? I donÄt think the could organize the Inaguration Ceremony in Amsterdam in a short periode of time.

Hi, I'm not at all a specialist of Dutch Royal Family, but I beleive that at the begining of the third row, it's not Mr Smith but it's the husband of the Infanta Pilar, Luis Gomez Acebo, ViceCount Della Toore, Duke of Badajoz.

This is a very interesting question because the situation would be slightly different to the long established procedure of the act of abdication, balcony appearance to introduce the new monarch to the people and then the inauguration ceremony several days later. I would imagine that there would be some kind of proclaimation that WA is now the king - this could be done with or without a balcony appearance. The funeral of Beatrix would, I should think have to take place first in Delft after several days of mourning followed a few days later by the inauguration in Amsterdam. If the Dutch are anything like the British I shoudl imagine they will organise all this very well and efficiently within a few days.

One thing I've been searching for recently, William III of the Netherlands. I wonder: are there some more photographs of William III of the Netherlands? can someone link them? And does anyone have a link to the video of Wilhelmina's coronation? It was captured on film in 1898, I Believe.

The lady between prince George of Greece and Queen Elisabeth of the Belgians is Princess Armgard of Lippe-Biesterfeld, the mother of prince Bernhard. The man next to princess Margaret is the Earl of Athlone, brother of Queen Mary. The lady between Axel and Olav is the Countess of Athlone, born as Princess Alice of the UK (Albany). The lady next to the crownprince of Sweden is princess Margaretha of Denmark, born princess of Sweden.

Queen Wilhelmina considered that she was 'dead' after she abdicated and that she had no business at state events anymore. She was rather drastic in this and even threw her bodyguard out of the car on the middle of the highway, as she didn't need him anymore.

The very difference alone that you speak of two things,a Coronation like in the UK,and an Inthronisation as we have here.

In the UK the Monarch is actually crowned,here the Regalia are laid out on the Credenstable in front of the Monarch,but remain untouched.
We do not have a Coronation,but a solemn swearing in for the General Assemblee of the States-General at the New Church,Amsterdam as
it is written in The Constitution that it is there the Ceremony must take place..

A rather late reply, but the last time this happened was when Queen Wilhelmina was enthroned. I don't recall reading anything about an oath, just the enthronement ceremony itself after a period of mourning (or in Wilhelmina's case, until she was 18. I don't recall that king Willem III made an oath in The Hague or anywhere else either, just the enthronement in Amsterdam. This is one of the very few things that Queen Sophie writes positively about in her letters to Lady Malet.

Do we know how long the time was between the death of King Willem II. and until King Willem III. took the oath. I think i read somewhere that in Wilhelmina's case Queen Emma took the oath as Regent but i believe it was when King Willem III. was still alive as she was first Regent for him for a short time just before his death.

I have no clue what time it took, though Queen Sophie writes about the enthronement in her letters to Lady Mallet (in a positive way, for a change).

Dorine Hermans is writing a book on the enthronement ceremonies of King Willem I, Willem II, Willem III and Queen Wilhelmina, Juliana and Beatrix. The book will be available in the shops in 2011. The titlewill be: ' wie ben ik dat ik dit doen mag' (who am I, that I am allowed to do this), which is a remark made by Queen Juliana during her enthronement speech.

A clip of the enthronement and the festivities around it, of Queen Wilhelmina. The voice over keeps referring to HRH Princess Wilhelmina, while she was infact already Queen for 8 years when the enthronement ceremony happened. On the background a variation on 'Wien Neerlands Bloed', which was often used as anthem (until in the 20-ties the Wilhelmus officially became the national anthem.
