What a great photo for the family album. What co-ordination and juggling of schedules this must've taken to get everybody together with all those royal duties to attend to! But worth all the trouble and headaches, I think!
1.Netherlands Royal Family at Their Royal Villa
Original caption: Standing outside on the veranda of their Dutch royal villa, "The Happy Elephant," are (L-R): Prince Carlos Hugo (blue shirt); his wife, Princess Irene; Queen Juliana; and Prince Bernhard.
2.The Queen Juliana and Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands with their daughters Princess Irene and Princess Margarite at Porto Ercole, Italy.
3.A picture from my friend Marianne from some royal postcards she bought, Willem and his maternal grandmother, Queen Juliana.
4.From my friend Marianne, some royal postcards ... Beatrix
5.From Marianne, Queen Juliana with baby Beatrix.
6.Another one from Marianne, the card announcing the birth of Crown Prince Willem. The picture was taken by his father, the late Prince Claus. Marianne tells me that the Dutch royals have a history of taking the first pictures of their offspring: Queen Wilhemena (sp) took the first picture of her daughter Princess Julia, and (then) baby Princess Juliana took the first picture of (then) baby Princess Beatrix ... Perhaps we can expect to see the first picture of the next Dutch heir taken by Willem himself?
7.And a final one (for the night!) from Marianne, (then) Queen Juliana meeting an fan?! :P ... Or perhaps this is the very same skeleton from Prince Harry's Eton pictures?!
8.Courtesy of Marianne again, Beatrix with her mom.
9.And one of the then Crown Princess Beatrix with her father.
These photographs are a little bit bad quality, and it is the too large character of the company name of a photo website. I think that it is hard to see these photographs for a character. Please overlook these photos' fault :flower:
1.With Japanese Crown Prince Akhito in Haneda airport in Japan
Very nice pictures, patje. Espescially the ones of Laurentien. The ones of Laurentien in the salmon-coloured jacket and white shirt and pants are particularly lovely. That colour looks very nice on her.
I think the second picture you posted of Laurentien in the pinky/red top is an older picture as I've seen it before.
I hope we will see new pictures of the rest of the family soon, like the Queen, Willem and Maxima, Constantijn and perhaps a picture of Margriet and Pieter with their sons, daughter-in-laws and grandchildren. What a nice family portrait that would be!
Princess Laurentien looks good on the 2 attires she wore.
Are the pictures new? Well, it isn't clear that she is pregnant.. :)
She looks gorgeous.
Among the sisters of Queen Beatrix, I find Princess Margriet the most beautiful. Her children are also handsome!

Margriet has grown into a very beautiful lady who ages with grace indeed! I think that she is far better looking now then when she was younger. In her 20-ties she was a bit plum I think & Princess Irene was by far the most glamourus princess till the 80-ties I think (PS...Margriet was alwayss the nicest sister .
