Yep, the house and the big terrorism proof fenced garden is rented to Abdul Rahman Al-Otaibi, the Ambassador of Kuwait in the Netherlands. Rumours say the monthly rent is 12.000 euro.

The Royal Domain De Horsten is for generations privately owned by the Orange-Nassaus but Villa Eikenhorst (one of the buildings on this Orange-Nassau, Bourbon-Parma, Van Vollenhoven enclave) was just newly constructed for Princess Christina in the eighties, so not so much history about it, but of course it is a fantastic house of high quality.

I think the Princess of Orange will live at Drakensteyn Estate and her sisters in one of the properties at the Royal Domain De Horsten. In the past decade derelict farms have been knocked down to make way for houses for family members, in this lush green nature reserve in densely populated The Hague.

Drakensteyn is indeed also an option at some point in the future. They are not going to sell that, especially not because prince Friso is buried next to it.

When Queen Juliana died in 2004, her four daughters inherited the royal domain De Horsten. It seems items have been swapped in the inheritance portfolio, so that -then- Queen Beatrix became the sole owner of De Horsten.

In 2017 Princess Beatrix gifted (possibly for his 50th birthday) the whole domain to her eldest son, King Willem-Alexander. It is understood that when buildings on the estate are free, family has the first option. That is probably why Princess Margarita de Bourbon de Parme, Pieter-Christiaan van Vollenhoven and Floris van Vollenhoven live on premises on the domain: they have first choice and most likely for a "friendly price".

I guess this will not be different for the three daughters of the owner, the King. It is believed the King agreed that Princess Margriet (sister of Princess Beatrix) remains the beneficient of rents of some 20 agricultural tenants instead of the owner (the King).
