I have just found these two pics of Princess Christina,one of her with her father and Princess Irene on the Wedding day of Prince WA and another at she presented her CD "My Christmas Album":
They are from Verena's Royalty Page 2002 and Netty Royal; and the third from Corbis, 2000.
"God save our Gracious Queen,
Long live our Noble Queen,
God save The Queen"
God save Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
I was looking at a thread at the Glittering Royal Events MB of Dutch post cards a member there had. And I noticed that Princess Christina was being referenced as Princess Marijke, which as I vaguely recall is her birth name. Can anyone tell me how, why and when the name was changed?
I am a bit fuzzy on the details, but did it have anything to do with her blindess that her name was changed?
And is the name an official one? Or just one that has become commonly used by the public and her family, rather than one is on legal documents?
No the others just are called by the name they were baptised with. It is ot uncommon in The Netherlands to use a daily name which is different from the official name. A friend of mine is called Clasina Adriana Wilhelmina, but she her 'roepnaam' is Diana.
The way you typed is is the way you would pronounce it, the 'ij' should be pronounced like 'I'.
Not only for pleasure, she is a professional and studied it for some years. I believe she teaches singing in NYC these days. And she recorded two CD┤s with her favourite songs, and sung at the funeral of both her parents.
I don thave an mp3, Beatrixfan, but she sung at the funeral of her parents and there should be videoclips on the website of the public channel. I will look into it later...
