I am pretty sure it's not a coincidence that it happened a few days before his 80th birthday.

By Royal Decree Pieter van Vollenhoven, Colonel of the Royal Netherlands Air Force Reserve, Aide-de-Camp Extraordinary to His Majesty The King, has been promoted to the rank of Commodore titulair.

Commodore Van Vollenhoven was given his new épaulettes in the presence of his spouse HRH Princess Margriet of the Netherlands and of his third son HH Prince Pieter-Christiaan van Oranje-Nassau, Van Vollenhoven, Colonel of the Royal Marechaussee Reserve.

The épaulettes were attached by Lieutenant-General J. D. Luyt, Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Netherlands Air Force and by Rear Admiral L.H.I. Brummelaar, Chief of the Military House of The King, Aide-de-Camp General.

Commodore Van Vollenhoven started in 1966 at the Juridical Department of the Staff of the Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Netherlands Air Force.

In 1967 Van Vollenhoven enrolled in the course to obtain a military license to fly as helicopter- and light aircraft pilot. He did this at Deelen Air Base near Arnhem.

In 1968 Van Vollenhoven became reserve pilot of the 300 Squadron (77 helicopters of the type Aérospatiale Alouette III and 30 helicopters of the type Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm BO-105).

In 2005 Van Vollenhoven was promoted to the rank of Colonel of the Royal Netherlands Air Force Reserve.

In 2019 Van Vollenhoven has been promoted to the rank of Commodore titulair.

The chapel with underlying mausoleum for the patrician Van Vollenhoven family has been restored. Picture and link to video: https://www.adelinnederland.nl/de-te...n-vollenhoven/

The chapel was built for one of the ancestors of Professor Pieter van Vollenhoven: the very wealthy Maurits van Vollenhoven (1860-1885) who married the noble jonkvrouwe Maria Louisa van de Poll (1857-1928).

Professor van Vollenhoven was not the first one to marry into a royal family. The beforementioned couple Van Vollenhoven-Van de Poll had a son, Ambassador Dr Maurits Willem Raedinck van Vollenhoven (1882-1976).

This Van Vollenhoven would marry Doña María Cristina de Borbón y Madan (1886-1985), daughter of Don Pedro de Alcántara de Borbón y Borbón (1862-1892), Duque de Dúrcal. Their union was without issue.

The coffins of the Van Vollenhovens are in the crypt under the chapel, not visible on the pictures.

It seems that there are a lot of professors in the family. Princess Juliana was following classes by Prof. Mr. Cornelis van Vollenhoven in Leiden.

What a splendid restoration of the Van Vollenhoven Chapel and mausoleum.

My understanding of Dutch is quite basic but is Doña María Cristina de Borbón buried there? too?

No, she is burried in the Cementerio Sacramental de San Isidro in Madrid, as is her husband:

https://www.geni.com/people/Maurits-...00003725599949

Other members of this branch of the Borbon family are burried at the same cemetary.

--
According to wikipedia the family rented the Sparrendaal estate for decades from the bishopric of Utrecht. Maurits received Felix Youssoupov and Queen Victoria Eugenia there. I had no idea that either of the two had visited the Netherlands. In 1919 Van Vollenhoven moved to Madrid and in 1921 he married his wife. He would be based in Madrid for the rest of his carreer and life. Apparently there is a buste of him in the Belgian senate, due to his efforts for providing humanitarian aid to Belgium in the first world war. His mother's coursin Jkvr. Henriëtte van de Poll was a lady-in-waiting of Queen Emma.

This is the Dowager Maurits van Vollenhoven née jonkvrouwe Maria Louisa van de Poll, her remains are in the crypt under this chapel.

Interesting that the Van Vollenhoven family is partly Protestant and partly Catholic.

I always assumed Calvinist but that makes sense with the Doña María Cristina de Borbón conection.
