That would be Princess Margriet of the Netherlands, the sister of Queen Beatrix. The Princess was born in Ottawa, Ontario, where the family had been living since June 1940 after the German occupation of the Netherlands. The Ottawa Civic Hospital on which Princess Margriet was born were placed temporarily outside the jurisdiction of Canadian law so that she would have exclusively Dutch, and not dual, nationality.

Crown Prince Alexander was born in London,UK.Same procedure was granted by PM Winston Churchill for the occasion,as was the case in Canada for the birth of Princess Margriet.

Princess Margriet & Canada

Princess Margriet was born in Canada and due to that she has a special connection to the country. She visits it quite frequently, meets Canadian war veterans etc.

----
A documentairy of Princess Magriet's early years in Canada, showing where she was born. One of the people talking is Renee Smith-Roell, one of the best friends of Queen Beatrix:
