Its a shame that De Nieuwe Kerk is a redundant church as its a very beautiful and historic space,having visited it twice myself.

The ongoing secularization has caused that the Protestant Community has to withdraw monumental buildings because of the enormous strains these lay on the budget.

The Nieuwe Kerk Amsterdam (wedding church of King Willem-Alexander) has been taken out of religious service, already for 50 years.

The Great- or Saint James' Church in The Hague (wedding church of Princess Juliana, chirstening church of King Willem-Alexander) has been taken out of religious service.

The Great- or Our Lady's Church in Breda (the oldest Nassau church in the Netherlands) has been taken out of religious service.

The New Church in Delft (where the royal vaults are) still hold irregular services but now the church is closed for years due to restoration. Big chance that after the costly restoration the New Church will remain a tourist attraction but also withdrawn from religious service....

In October 1903 Prince Philip's parents, Prince Andrew of Greece and Princess Alice of Battenberg were married at Darmstadt in Germany (the bride's mother's ancestral home.) There was a civil ceremony, then, the next day, a Lutheran ceremony was performed in the Evangelical Castle Church in the town, followed by a Greek Orthodox ceremony in the Russian Chapel on the Mathildehohe. The bride was profoundly deaf and must have found the multiple ceremonies rather an ordeal.

Philip's first cousin Prince Michael of Greece wrote an interesting anecdote about one of the ceremonies. He said

"Prince Andre of Greece, the beloved brother of my father, married Princess Alice of Battenberg. She was somewhat deaf, and out of fear that she would make a mistake, they had her memorize the responses she was to give to the priest’s questions during the marriage ceremony. Unfortunately for Alice, the priest reversed the order of the questions.
Have you already been married?
Yes.
Have you renounced having any other man in your life?
No.
What clearly provoked confusion among the clergy, was a source of great laughter for the family."

I'll bet it was a source of laughter within the family for years to come! Alice was an incredibly good lip reader, though. In the days of silent films she would tell people next to her what the actors were really saying.
