On This Day: Dutch Royal Family

September 25

1968

Today in Royal History is the 51st birthday of Prince Friso of Orange-Nassau born Prince Johan-Friso Bernhard Christiaan David van Oranje-Nassau van Amsberg of the Netherlands, Prince of Orange-Nassau, Jonkheer van Amsberg. He was the second child of Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands and Claus von Amsberg. He was a member of the Dutch Royal Family but because of his marriage without an Act of Consent in 2004 to Mabel Wisse Smit, he lost his membership of the Dutch Royal House, was stripped of his 'Prince of the Netherlands' title and was barred from the line of succession to the throne. This marriage brought the couple two children namely Countesses Luana and Zaria.



On 17 February 2012, Prince Friso was buried under an avalanche in Lech, Austria. After one and a half years of hospitalization, he died on On 12 August 2013 due to complications.

I recall the day vividly as we were off from school.

Pieter was,as we know,the first `commoner ` to get married into the Duch RF.
No titles granted,as Juliana wished a normal situation.But now,after so many years if there would be one person who would deserve a title it would be Pieter van Vollenhoven.So truly respected and loved,wise and a humour that leaves all in stitches.A dear father,uncle and husband and a confidant of the King with whom he has a very special relationship.They still,after all these years celebrate their wedding day with their best men and closest friends,Margriet wearing her wedding dress every time...One doesn´t hear that often of Ladies who wear let alone fit in their wedding dress 53 years after the ceremony...

At the time of his birth he was the grandson of the 1st King of the Netherlands,and his mother Anna Pavlovna of Russia was a daughter of Paul I of Russia .

Here's a painting from 1817 of Prince Willem Alexander Paul Frederik Lodewijk Nassau van Oranje as a child.

The last Roman Catholic Prince of Orange,he is not buried at the traditional resting place of the house of Orange at the Nieuwe Kerk , Delft but instead at the RC Church of Sint-Sulpitiuskerk in Diest,Belgium.
