Miss Pepper sadly died in action. She went after a rabbit in the palace gardens and got struck somewhere.

An anxious Queen Beatrix alarmed all the palace staff and guards into the gardens to find Miss Pepper. Sadly she was found dead, suffocated in a hole under the lawn...

My wife has endured the delivery in an wonderful way and is recovering very well. For this I feel deep gratitude to God.

Professor Pleyte, who has done such an excellent job has ensured that my wife and our son will return to Drakensteyn as soon as this is medically allowed.

Our son, and I can say that as a proud father, is a gorgeous baby. He was born three minutes to eight and weighs almost 8 pounds and is 50 centimetres long. Right from his very first moment, he has given a very loud and clear proof of his presence.

Also in the name of my wife I would like to say thanks to all, in the Netherlands, in Suriname, in the Netherlands Antilles, who have shown their well wishes and joy on such an overpowering, spontaneous and heartfelt way, which have contributed to our great joy."

Thanks for the translation, Henri!
Prince Claus always seemed so proud of this wife and the 3 boys.
It's so nice to see the old videos where Claus presents his newborn sons.

Anyhoo, Queen Juliana, Prince Bernhard, Princess Beatrix, and Claus all speak English (Beatrix and Bernhard are flawless).

At the end of the text in the middle section, there is a video from BBC. Just click on the eye. The first video is an interview with the family but it's in Dutch (in case anyone is interested in that too).
/Geschiedenis : De verloving van Beatrix en Claus - Professionals
I enjoyed the BBC interview very much. Queen Beatrix speaks perfect English, which isn't a surprise since she spent part of her childhood in Canada. It was funny to see her acting almost like a giddy schoolgirl in love, and she was very much in love!

Sweet memories!!

"A #throwback to June 1966 ��. Prince Claus is greeted by the Golden Retriever 'Joris' at Drakensteyn castle. Joris lived with Princess Beatrix in Lage Vuursche from 1964 and in the following years also became acquainted with Prince Claus, Prince Willem-Alexander, Prince Friso and Prince Constantijn."

What an utterly beautiful picture, but was it indeed Princess Gracia's funeral?
I thought the Queen was joined by Princess Juliana and Prince Bernhard.

When I see Claus von Amsberg and Henri de Montpezat so happy at their wedding with a future Queen . I feel sorry how the end of their lifes was sad as husband of a Queen.

The caption must be wrong indeed. There was no Dutch representation at the funeral. Prince Bernhard was supposed to go to Monaco but due to mist his plane could not fly and he stayed at home.
