also interesting to note that WA's crown has his name as 'alexander'. i wonder if this is how he is known in the family in an informal setting.
Yes, the family name is Alexander.

In 1967 Prince Claus registered the names of his son and before the Mayor of Utrecht, jonkheer Constant de Ranitz, he said: "The names are Willem-Alexander Claus George Ferdinand, and we call him: Alexander". See:

How sad it must be for the remaining sisters that the baby of the family died. Beatrix was 9 years older than Cristina, I'm sure that she didn't expect her baby sister to die before her. Does anyone know if Jorge Guillermo paid his last respects?

Well, the cancer chose the youngest this time

King Albert II of Belgium probably didn't suppose either that his baby half-brother Alexander (eight years younger) would die before him.

In the long, long funerary history of the House Orange-Nassau, Princess Christina will be the first not to be buried or interred. She is the first to be cremated.

And another possible nouveauté: the Princess will possibly be the first without a Christian funeral service, as there will only be a short gathering in the Garden Pavillion and a farewell at the gates of the Royal Mews, where the cortège will leave Noordeinde Palace's compound.


Maybe there will be a Priest but in any case there is no funeral Mass in a church.

It looks like a simple but dignified ceremony.

Yes obviously. I don't think the others have a say in this if it's her wish.

It's a nice arrangement. Funeral can be a celebration of life and not necessarily full of sadness.

Isabel is 10 and Julian 8 (Children of Bernardo) are, IMHO, big enough to say farewell to their grandma.

There was a private ceremony afterwards. It is possible that they were there. The Guillermo’s have always been very private and perhaps prefer to keep their children away from the press.

That is for the parents to decide.

Most probably yes,they are never seen in public,or hardly,and love to keep it that way.

There were Laureats of the Princess Christina Music Concours in attendance
at the ceremony at the Royal Mews and some performed

Meanwhile the ceremony is over and the late Princess has been cremated.R.I.P.
