Former Girlfriends of King Willem-Alexander

I have been reading a book on the Royal Families of Europe and
in the Chapter on the Netherlands it states that The Prince of Orange
was engaged for quite a few years to a young Dutch Lady, but
was encouraged by the Queen to break the engagement, since she was a commoner and Catholic.

Does anyone know who this lady is?

Emily.She was his girlfriend for a few years,yes,but that she was catholic was not the problem.Her dad,a dentist,was a bit of a fraud tax wise and had moved to Belgium as the tax climate "is better there",besides that,he wasn't discrete on his daughters relation to Alexander,he blabbered,we can't have that.Being the girlfriend of a Crown Prince makes everyone thinks they have a say and everyone will start looking for what we call "lijken in de kast",bodies in the closet.Besides all that,everybody has had more then one girlfriend- or boyfriend....at least I hope so....

They seperated,yes,but Emily is happily married,since years,with a friend of Alexander.But Alexander has had several girlfriends,you know...

In addition, what I know is being Catholic isn't a problem for the Dutch Royal family as Maxima is Catholic.

I believe at the time it was said that the Queen was afraid that Emily wasn't fit for the function of Crown Princess.

A picture of Emily Bremers in the 90-ties:

During the baptism of Princess Ariane:

During her wedding to Jhr. Roderick van Wijk. I believe Princess Máxima also attended the wedding.

And here a picture of Jkvr. Vanessa Loudon. the gossip magazines linked her to the PoO in the 90-ties too, esp. as his mothers favourite candidate (as she is a noble), but there seem to be very little truth in the story:

According to the Telegraaf, Emily Bremers and her husband Jhr. Roderick van der Wijck are getting a divorce. Bremers is moving to another house in The Hague. The couple has two children.

Ow... too bad for the couple. In 2002 Jonkheer Rhoderick Wolter Arnold van der Wyck married Miss Emily Anna Hubertina Maria Bremers at Duyvenvoorde Castle in Voorschoten near The Hague (civil). The religious wedding took place in Kapellen, close to Brasschaat, an posh residential area just over the Dutch-Belgian border, in the province Antwerp, where the couple lives (lived).

The couple got two children:
Jonkheer Philip Rein Lodewijk van der Wyck (2003)
Jonkheer Maurits Rhoderick August van der Wyck (2004)

The aristocrat family Van der Wyck still owns some historic estates in the Netherlands.
