The lady on the photo seems to be Queen Emma and since she died in 1934 the caption must be wrong about the date too as there has not been a miraculous resurrection of the Queen as far as we know.

That is indeed Queen Emma and not her daughter.

The royal collections have tweeted a photo of Queen Wilhelmina taking a 'selfie' in Mecklenburg 115 years ago:

Dobbin was owned as a vacation home by Queen Wilhelmina and Prince Hendrik. After the death of the Prince, his widow Queen Wilhelmina sold it for 1.035.000 Reichsmark to Sir Henry Deterding (President of Royal Dutch Shell Oil). Sadly in WWII the estate was completely destroyed by bombs.

After 1945 the Communists confisquated the whole estate (lands, moors, forests) as Volkseigentum ("Owned by the People").

I hope to see Queen Máxima with that fabulous corsage de devant. So far she has only a centre piece of it as a pendant.

Queen Juliana with the corsage in full setting: https://i1.wp.com/www.thecourtjewell...iana.png?ssl=1

The pendant of this combination is a centre element of the corsage de devant, attached to a brooch:

The large brooch that is pinned on the front of the dress.

This is a drawing of this parure, Queen Máxima has combined the brooch on the right with a pendant, taken out of the corsage de devant.

The problem will be that the heavy corsage needs to be pinned on a firm bodice (a corset), preventing a dress to be dragged down. In Queen Wilhelmina's lifetime a firm bodice was normal.

At age twenty, Queen Wilhelmina ordered a Dutch warship to evacuate Paul Kruger from South Africa's embattled Transvaal.

Read: the Dutch Government. Since 1848 the King is inviolable, the ministers are responsible. Nothing can happen without ministerial approval. No way a 20 years old (or whatever age) Wilhelmina could "order" warships.

Funny enough, that is how it's described on Paul Kruger's wiki page
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Kruger

"Kruger left the Transvaal by rail on 11 September 1900—he wept as the train crossed into Mozambique. He planned to board the first outgoing steamer, the*Herzog*of the*German East Africa Line, but was prevented from doing so when, at the behest of the local British Consul, the Portuguese Governor insisted that Kruger stay in port under*house arrest.[n 29]*About a month later*Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands*concluded a deal with Britain to extricate Kruger on a Dutch warship,*HNLMS*Gelderland, and convey him through non-British waters to*Marseille. Kruger was delighted to hear of this but dismayed that Gezina, still in Pretoria, was not well enough to accompany him.*Gelderland*departed on 20 October 1900.[222]"

It is nice to romanticize but Queen Wilhelmina wrote letters to Queen Victoria, Emperor Wilhelm II and to Tsar Nicholas II (in consultation with Prime Minister Aenas baron Mackay).

In 1890 an International Peace Conference was organized on the initiative of Tsar Nicholas II. Queen Wilhelmina offered Huis ten Bosch as conference venue. This conference was fruitless anyway.

When the Boer republics were defeated by the British it was Minister of Foreign Affairs Hendrik Willem de Beaufort whom organized a safe exit of Paul Kruger. It was "Her Majesty's" Panzer Cruiser Gelderland which picked up the Boers president. But all within the normal constitutional framework. No way that a heated young girl in The Hague ordered the Fleet to sail to South Africa and pick up the besieged Paul Kruger.

At the end of the film a group of Dutch army officers toast Queen Wilhelmina in front of a picture of the Dutch Sovereign.

It was her annual visit to Amsterdam,as was custom then since the days of King Willem I,the Monarch,and his / her family were to visit Amsterdam once a year for about a week.That tradition ceased after WWII,but the city still sees plenty of Royal activities throughout the year.
