Dutch Royal Family Books
In today's newpapers I read an article about a new book about the Royal Family from the Netherlands. It says (sorry for the bad translation :wacko: ):
"There is a new book about Mabel Wisse Smit and her role in the Royal Family from the Netherlands. Het liefje van Oranje (title of the book) makes prince JF's fiancee look very good. The author, Bert van der Veer, has kept it decently.
Van der Veer is putting the queen (Beatrix) a lot of words in her mouth - 'kriegeltjes! appears to be her favourite word - but it never becomes undecent. Most members of the royal family are not made fun with.
Although: princess Margarita looks like a paranoid bird, thatexpects a microphone under every saltshaker in an Amsterdams café. Crownprincess Maxima too: she looks like a stupid chicken that takes note on prince Clause's funeral that the Netherlands have miltary people too.
But Mabel Wisse Smit is a real heroine according to van der Veer.

Any new books about Princess Maxima coming out or have come out?

De Telegraaf has published a new book on Princess Máxima, to celebrate her 5th wedding anniversary (next February 2nd). The book (by Alex de Vries and Menzo Willems) contains 300 photos and it's entitled Máxima: 5 years as Princess of the Netherlands, but takes the following subtitle: Willem-Alexander: 40 years preparing to be king.

It costs 13,95 € (shipment included), but is only available within the Netherlands.

In light of the upcoming wedding-anniversary of the Prince of Orange and Princess Máxima, there will be 2 new book releases.
This is the first one:

Hendrik-Jan77 01-24-2007 01:09 PM

This is the second one:

According to several sources, more new books about the princely couple are forthcoming!
How exciting!

Verde Esmeralda 01-24-2007 07:58 PM

I'm sure.

Btw can anybody advise me on good books (in English preferrably) about the Dutch Royal Family (not only Maxima) ? Thanks!

Hendrik-Jan77 02-06-2007 05:53 PM

A third new book coming up about Princess Máxima: | Boeken (Nederlands) | Het aanzien van Maxima - 5 jaar prinses

linda85 02-07-2007 02:25 AM

ahh to be able to speak and understand Dutch. Does anyone know if these three books would be available in English?
Thanks in advance,
Linda 85

I will certainly look up the 2 book suggestions already provided but I noticed that those don't seem to be that recent. So I was wondering if there was any other book that someone could suggest. I would really like to explore the history of the royal family. It's great to study only one royal but I would prefer a book with a great overview of this RF.

I think there are only a few books on Dutch royals available in english.

There are several on the Stadholder William III, whow as also King of GB. The book 'Orange and Stuart' by Pieter Geyl is rather informative.

Furthermore there is 'A stranger in The Hague', about Queen Sophia, nee Pss of Wurttemberg. It contains her letters to Lady Malet and is written by mr. Jackman and Hella Haasse.

The autobiography of Queen Wilhelmina 'Lonely but not alone' is available in english to.

Alden Hatch wrote a biography on Prince Bernhard in the 70-ties, with which the prince cooperated. I forgot the exact title.

The should be some books on Willem I (the silent) to. And I have a book in my collections which contain the memories of Countess Cornelia van Wassenaer, who was a lady-in-waiting of Queen Anna. Her memoires describe the visit to St Petersburg by the Princess of Orange and her suite.

Are all those these books only sold in the Netherlands and Europe? There is no way to get them in the USA?

angiep 04-08-2007 04:45 PM

Oh, I wish these books were available in the US!! I used to love all of the beautiful picture books made about Princess Diana in the 80's (Trevor Hall did some nice ones). Maybe an author reading this could take note and make some new ones of the 'young' European Royals? ;)
Princess Maxima is gorgeous and I love her sense of style--a fashion book would be really nice.

Today I saw another book on maxima by Marc van der Linden. It contains 250 pictures of Maxima, and some information to. Only available in Dutch though.
