Thank you! It looks such a long time ago!

'Mr A' the interviewing is referring to was, I believe, Prince Richard of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg. I like it when Beatrix shows her ring 'all diamonds'.

I read that Prince Richard was never in the picture for Crown Princess Beatrix. They have always been friends and he even served as the distraction from Claus when Beatrix and Claus went skiing together (before their relationship became public). He was their decoy! I'm sure that's where all those silly rumours got started.

I do not know for certain if he or his later brother in law, the Prince of Hesse-Kassel was the decoy (just imagine the uproar the hesse-kassel marriae would have caused, his mother being of the italian RF and his father a staunch Nazi-supporter!).

I have read the story of Claus 'taking away' Richards bride in many books (which doesn't mean anything as they can all be quoting each other & the same false rumours). However I believe Richard and Claus were good friends, as were/are the two families.

Beatrix and Claus

I have a question about their marriage and this might not be the proper place to ask it. However, were they faithful to each other? I ask because I know that Bernhard was not faithful to Juliana and I don't remember if I read that Claus had affairs.

In pictures, it always seems like she adores him!

I don't want to speak evil of the dead but I am curious to know. If someone has posted on this somewhere else on the forum, let me know!

I have heard stories of other royals being unfaithful to each other, but I don't think I've ever heard a single story of Claus or Beatrix being unfaithful to each other. I think there were difficulties in their marriage as there are in any marriage, but I don't think infidelity by either of them was a problem.

I think that despite the infidelity by Bernhard Sr. in his marriage to Juliana (and at the time and in those social circles it was the norm), their daughters had faithful marriages. Even though Irene and Christina's marriages ultimately ended in divorce, I don't think the reason for either of the divorces was infidelity or a wandering eye, but other problems.

Thank you for your quick response! I'm glad they had a good marriage, although I'm sure that she really misses him now....

Thanks for the pictures, Catherine! They're so beautiful (as was Beatrix on her wedding day). Everytime I see Claus I just have to sigh a little. He's very much missed here. :(

Question

Does anyone know why (then) Crown Princess Margrethe of Danmark didn't attend the wedding of Princess Beatrix?
I heard they had quite a good realtionship this time (Margrethe is even a Godmother of WA). I think her sisters, Benedikte and Anne-Marie were both there.

I think this has been a really cute wedding. It's lovely to see Beatrix smiling after Claus said "yes".
A very very beautiful couple.

Neither Beatrix nor Margrethe were Crown Princess. Margrethe was formally titled Throne-follower because she was heir presumptive. Beatrix seems to have simply Princess Beatrix.

I think you will find Margrethe was expecting Frederik and only had a month to go before the birth.

oh no that cannot be true.
The wedding took place in April 1966! Margrethe married one year after Beatrix in May 1967! And frederik was born in May 1968.
So she wasn't pregnant this time.
I think it was Beatrix who just gave birth to WA when she attended the wedding of Margrethe and Henry/ Henrik. :)

I believe the official way was the heiress presumptive, Princess Beatrix. But it was popular to use Crownprincess. These days it is the same. Officially it is never Crownprince Willem-Alexander but The Prince of Oranje or Prince WA, though in magazines, newspapers, daily language people usually use '' crownprince', even on the television news of the public channels.

I heard she was called "supposed successor to the throne". I don't know but to me that sound a bit negative... Like they still weren't sure that Beatrix would become Queen one day..
Has she ever been called like this or has it something to do with the diputed wedding of Beatrix with Claus?

True, in dutch it is 'vermoedelijke troonopvolger'. It has nothing to do with Claus, as Willem-Alexander is called this now, and Juliana, Wilhelmina, Alexander, Willem, Willem and Willem were called the same :) and deo volente, Catharina-Amalia will receive the same title.
