Actually, I got it from the website www.angelfire.com/realm/beatrix1966/index.html


They have scanned the pictures there, so I must say it is there hard work and they receive all the credit for it. I am also sorry for not mentioning it before.
I posted the pictures last night and too tired to even know my name...lol..

Please check out the site, it has some wonderful information on Queen Beatrix and Prince Claus and some problems surrounding their wedding.
