Although it's not a favorite, I don't mind her wedding dress...minus the gloves, minus the veil. It's hard to say how much I like it as many of the photos do not display the detail clearly and I'm not certain if the lace/embroidery is too heavy or just right.

Her wedding dress was very boring. Not a gown for a Queen.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Wedding Wednesday: Queen Beatrix's Gown

I think Beatrix's gown is dull, boring, uninteresting, and dated. I also dislike the gloves with the gown. Though I don't think it's one of the worst wedding dresses of course. The only things that I like about her look was her veil, tiara, and brooch. Nevertheless, not a gown for a future Queen in my opinion.

Agreed, but it was for sure of the time period!

Crown Princess Beatrix was an absolutely beautiful bride!



In July 1966 Queen Juliana broadcast on television and radio that Princess Beatrix was engaged to the diplomat Claus-Georg von Amsberg.
"I assure you," Juliana told the people. "It is a good thing."
A crowd of only 2,000 cheered Beatrix and Claus on the balcony.
An effort to raise $350,000 for the bride produced $20,000.

Raise money from whom? Do you have a source for this?

This is so absolutely not true. From their Wedding Gift the Princess and the Prince decided to donate 1 million guilders (1 million guilders in 1966 corresponds to 3 million US Dollar today) in projects for handicapped children "in the West" (= Suriname and the Netherlands Antilles) plus 60.000 guilders to the Catholic Foundation for the Handicapped Child in Vught (province of North-Brabant).

For themselves the couple received tableware, designed to their wishes, for family use at Dakensteyn which could serve up to 48 couverts. The gift was made by four chosen Dutch industries:
- crystal tableware from Leerdam Glassworks in Leerdam - artist: Andreas Copier
- bone china tableware from Mosa in Maastricht - artist: Edmond Bellefroid
- silver tableware from Kempen & Begeer in Voorschoten - artist: Carl Begeer (existing design from 1926 - modified to the Princess' wishes)
- damast tableware from Van Dissel Linen Industries in Eindhoven - artist: Kitty van der Meijl-Dekker

Here three of these couverts on one of the damast table linens: https://www.serviezendomein.nl/afbee...o-IMG_0925.jpg

On all these four sets (crystal, china, silver and damast) the monogram cb is used, see detail: https://www.serviezendomein.nl/afbee...aus%202927.jpg

Later the Princess ordered additional tableware (28 more couverts, plus silver serving trays, crystal wine flagons, etc.) with the same design and the logo cb. This fits in the tradition that each generation adds new elements to the immense crystal, silver, china and damast collection. This is the addition of WA and Máxima 350 (!) couverts existing of 14 pieces per couvert: https://www.serviezendomein.nl/afbee...s_compleet.jpg

I've just spotted Prince Michael of Kent alongside his sister Princess Alexandra and is that the Infanta Margarita behind Prince Bernhard?
Sir Angus is over beside King Constantine II?
Also is that Princess Irene of Greece at the back behind the duchess of Kent?

Yes for the first three. Not sure about Princess Irene of Greece because i don't recignize the man next to her and Princess Irene It is not the Duke of Parma who is standing before them.
And near Prince Juan Carlos and Princess Sofia are Princess Aschwein and princess Simone zur Lippe-Biesterfeld.

Between the two princesses Irene is standing the Aga Kahn.
In addition to Pss Margaretha of Sweden there was also Pss Christina, as one of the bridesmaids. She is standing between Pss Benedikte and Pss Christina of the Netherlands.

I believe it is not Infanta Maragrita but her elder sister Infanta Pilar who is photographed.
