Burglary At Dutch Royal Estate ‘De Horsten’
Newspaper De Telegraaf reveals that Princess Margarita of Bourbon-Parma has become the victim of a burglary. The Princess lives on the Royal Estate ‘De Horsten’ in Wassenaar with her husband Tjalling Ten Cate and their two daughters Julia and Paola . King Willem-Alexander and his family live in Villa Eikenhorst on the same estate.
The burglary happened a month ago. The thief was possibly looking for gold and diamonds as the princess told several times in the press that she has a workshop at home where she designs jewelry for her jewel collection ‘Leaves‘. However, she keeps no precious materials at home as the jewels are made in Antwerp.
