From ANP, the city palace Lange Voorhout:




It was used for prinsjesdag in Juliana's days, when Noordeinde was not used by the RF:

Former palace Lange Voorhout (now the Escher Museum) in The Hague. Originally built as a city mansion for the deputy of Friesland in the Counsil of State, but from 1841-1983 a royal palace.







pictures by Chris Schram

Here a drawing of the palace in the time that Prince Hendrik and Princess Marie (nee Pss of Prussia) lived there. From the Alexanderforum, poisted by Thijs:

Thanks for the pictures! I was not familiar with these palaces, it's nice to see other buildings besides the more photographed ones. The books I have seem to stay in the historically popular structures.

Now the interior of (former) Palace Lange Voorhout in The Hague. Again all posted by Thijs on the Alexanderpalace forum.

Vestibule:



Sitting room:



The main staircase. The uppe painting was identified as a Waldeck-Pyrmont anscestor of Queen Emma and the lower portrait is Empress Maria Feodorovna of Russia (mother of Queen Anna). The last paining was replaced to palace Noordeinde.



Another room in Lange Voorhout. On the paining right a young king Willem III and his brother Alexander.

More of Lange Voorhout, again as posted by Thijs on the Alexanderpalace forum.

The ballroom around 1980:



Dressingroom of Queen Emma:




Drawing room of Queen Emma with on the background portraits of her parents and sisters (and maybe her brother as well). The portraits were inherited by her cousin Fuerst Josias of Waldeck-Pyrmont.



Better view of the portraits:

It was built originally for a Frisian deputy to the estates general. Much later king Willem II bought it. The palace passed to prince Hendrik (uncle of Q. Wilhelmina) and later to Queen Emma. Juliana sold it in 1991 to the state. Since 2004 it is the location of the Esscher Museum.

Unfortunately yes...Juliana used it as her office during her Reign,would have done nicely these days as a Palace.... It is beautifull!!

Queen Juliana was the first queen to start the riding tour of the Golden Carriage from Lange Voorhout Palace at the opening of the States General on Prince's Day.

Apparently the house next to the palace -on the Lange Voorhout 79- also belonged to the Royal Family.

I read nothing in the press about the building, but apparently it was sold by princess Beatrix to a private firm for 3 million Euro's in March 2017.

Prince Constantijn and his family temporarily lived in the palace according to the vastgoed journaal. Between 1998 and 2015 it was the residence of the grand master of the court. Before that it housed 'stateless refugees', among them Russians who fled after the revolution of 1917 -hence the name. When the palace next door was still in use, it housed the staff of Queen Emma.

How very interesting that Princess Beatrix is mentioned in the article as responsible for the sale...Has she taken on the stewardship of the Dutch royal family's famously large (and murky) fortune? Her grandson Prince Bernhard jr is also in the news as a real estate magnate, owning several million euros worth of houses in Amsterdam Such fascinating questions to ponder...?

It seems a bit odd to me that Beatrix would sell this house after being given a taxpayer funded townhouse a few streets away. Anyway, nice building and didn't realise the main palace was being used by the RF so relatively recently

The city mansion Noordeinde 66 (picture) is an annex of the Noordeinde palace complex, including security, access to facilitary services, the Royal Mews, etc. I think it was more practical to use Noordeinde 66, which has representative salons to serve as a pied à terre for Princess Beatrix.

It is strange that Prince Constantijn and Princess Laurentien bought a much simpler house while this pretty big monumental house at the beautiful Lange Voorhout was available and already owned by his mother.

Their new house looks nice and homely but not what I would associate with a brother of the King: https://cdn2-img.pressreader.com/pre...D%3D&scale=100
