Queen Wilhelmina started the 'tradition' of going back to the title 'princess' as she wanted to die with the same title that she was born with (at least she says so in her autobiography). Indeed, it...

Not only the priest called her princess, but everybody did. In the press and 'on the street'. But after a few years most are using 'queen' at the moment. I personally prefer the Luxembourg situation...

Broken into pieces might have been a strong statement indeed, but his image certainly is not what it used to be. 36% lost sympathy for the royal family and the prince is the most popular target in...
