If I am not mistaken, members of the Belgian royal house were legally forbidden from marrying any member of the House of Orange-Nassau. I am not sure if that rule is still in force. Does anybody know ?

It was in force from 1830 onwards. When Amalia was born the matter was given some publicity. In 2014 the law was still unchanged.

I stand corrected.

Do you have a link to the Explanatory Memorandum and the Advice of the Council of State?

If King Willem-Alexander wished to be addressed as King after his abdication, could he have it as a courtesy title just as Queen Máxima does?

And what about titles of spouses of Zaria, Luana, Eloise, Claus-Casimir and Leonore ? I think wife of C-C will be Countess. Will Eloise, Leonore, Zaria and Luana renounce the title ?

The daughters of Prince Friso and the children of Prince Constantijn are all have the surname Van Oranje-Nassau van Amsberg, the title Graaf (Gravin) van Oranje-Nassau and the noble predicate Jonkheer van Amsberg. As in Dutch name law it is not allowed to cumulate several titles in a surname, usually the highest title is used in combination with the surname: Graaf (Gravin) van Oranje-Nassau van Amsberg.

According the Nobility Act 1994, noble titles are hereditary via the male lineage. There were several attempts to make it hereditary in both the male and the female lineage. The Government has refused to do this. Argument: with the Nobility Act 1994 a sort of "glass dome" has been placed over "a historic institute". There are no new ennoblements (apart from members of the Royal House) and so the number of nobles will, generation by generation, become smaller. It is not the wish of the Government to modernize the nobility system because this would only lead to a revival of a historic institute, lead to more aristocrats, which was never the intention.

As the situation is as now, only Claus-Casimir is the one who can procreate the comital House Van Oranje-Nassau van Amsberg. If he gets no sons, it will become extinct with himself or his eventual daughters.

There are no laws about losing noble titles in the Netherlands. There is a possibility to dismiss the title, but this only happened 7 times, 5 times on the request of the title holders.The last time was in 1984. Jhr. Pieter van beyma wanted to drop his title. The high counsil of the nobility refused his request. After this the jonkheer went to the socialist television station and in the end he was allowed to drop his title.

Since none of the countesses or count is a member of the royal house, none of their marriages will have to be approved by parlament.

Countess Eloïse, Count Claus-Casimir and Countess Eleonore are still in the line of succession. If they wish to remain a successor, they still need an Act of Consent for their marriage. But: with Amalia, Alexia and Ariane in mind: it looks unlikely that the Countesses and the Count will request a formal consent.

Line of succession:
1. The Princess of Orange (1st daughter of the King)*
2. Princess Alexia (2nd daughter of the King)*
3. Princess Ariane (3rd daughter of the King)*
4. Prince Constantijn (brother of the King)*
-----------------------------------------------------
5. Countess Eloïse (niece of the King)
6. Count Claus-Casimir (nephew of the King)
7. Countess Eleonore (niece of the King)
8. Princess Margriet (aunt of the King)**

* = member of the Royal House by the Royal House Act 2002
** = member of the Royal House by special remainder in the Royal House Act 2002

I am not familiar with the exact wording of the Belgian law , but assuming the marriage would be invalid in Belgium, any issue would be illegitimate from the Belgian perspective and, therefore, excluded from the Belgian line of succession, which, incidentally, was the goal of the law in the first place, I.e. to prevent an Orange-Nassau from ever becoming King of the Belgians.

Prince Gabriel’s “ perfect match” IMHO would be the Princess of Asturias ( similar age, same religious denomination, etc.) .

Their highest title would be Princess of the Netherlands, which they will keep as long as they are members of the Dutch Royal House.

In times past, if HRH Princess Alexia of the Netherlands married HSH Prince XX of Waldeck and Pyrmont, she would have moved to Waldeck and Pyrmont and been known as HRH Princess XX of Waldeck and Pyrmont or HRH Princess Alexia of Waldeck and Pyrmont (I do not know if the wives of Princes of Waldeck and Pyrmont were known by their husbands' first names). She would remain a Princess of the Netherlands and a Princess of Orange-Nassau, but she would use the title of her husband.

I do not know what would happen today.

She would use her husband’s title , but the style of her Dutch title ( HRH) , which is higher in rank than Her husband’s HSH.

Exactly like BTW Sophie of Liechtenstein, who uses her Bavarian HRH even though her husband is only an HSH.

But would Alexia follow the same tradition of using her husband's title if she married a prince from a non-reigning family and continued to live in the Netherlands? Was Princess Irene known as Princess Irene of the Netherlands while she was still married to Carlos Hugo, or was she known by one of her husband's titles of pretense?

Princess Astrid’s family uses their Austrian titles and styles even within Belgium itself as shown by Anna Astrid’s birth certificate, but. I don’t know what Alexia would do in a similar situation.

Irene’s chiildren’s Bourbon-Parme titles were, I think, legally incorporated by royal decree into the nobility of the Netherlands, and that is why her children use them in the Netherlands itself. Princess Irene herself doesn’t use a Bourbon-Parme title and the 2002 Act on Membership of the Royal House contains a special remainder that enables her to keep her title of Princess of the Netherlands even though she is no longer a member of the Dutch Royal House.

Apologies if my meaning was unclear; I meant the title which they use for everyday purposes, as opposed to the full titles used on documents such as birth certificates. For illustration, while the Belgian monarchy has regarded Princess Astrid as both an HRH Princess of Belgium and an HI&RH Archduchess of Austria-Este since her marriage to Lorenz (and an HSH(?) Duchess of Saxony since 2015), the only titles and styles they regularly used to address her were "HI&RH Archduchess Lorenz/Astrid of Austria-Este" until 1991 and "HRH Princess Astrid of Belgium" after 1991.

Should Alexia follow the example of Astrid of Belgium after 1991, she would continue to use "HRH Princess Alexia of the Netherlands" regardless of her husband's title or style.

I wonder what title she used prior to her divorce from Carlos Hugo, when she and her husband lived abroad (Princess Irene and her husband were divorced long before her children's titles were incorporated into the nobility of the Netherlands).

They will keep the title they currently have. Legally their name nor title will change. They might decide to be either known by their maiden name or taken on their husbsnd's surname but legally thry will remain what thry are from birth (for example Mabel and Laurentien do use Van Oranje as a surname but legally their surnames are Brinkhorst and Wisse Smit, respectively (Mabel's surname did legally change at one point in her life from Los to Wisse Smit).

Great question. Although I don't think it will help us much to know what would be done 2 generations down the line.

Just FYI: princess Irene in practice doesn't use '(princess) of the Netherlands' but (princess) of Lippe-Biesterfeld.

In Ebenbürtige marriages the bride followed the style of her royal husband:

H.K.H. prinses Marianne van Pruisen, prinses der Nederlanden, prinses van Oranje-Nassau.

H.K.H. prinses Sophie, groothertogin van Saksen-Weimar-Eisenach, prinses der Nederlanden, prinses van Oranje-Nassau.

H.K.H. prinses Irene van Bourbon-Parma, prinses der Nederlanden, prinses van Oranje-Nassau, prinses van Lippe-Biesterfeld.




The two brides whom married Ebenbürtig but would become Queen, kept their Dutch titles in front and just had their husband's style as an addition:

H.K.H. prinses Wilhelmina der Nederlanden, prinses van Oranje-Nassau, hertogin van Mecklenburg

H.K.H. prinses Juliana der Nederlanden, prinses van Oranje-Nassau, hertogin van Mecklenburg, prinses van Lippe-Biesterfeld




The three princesses whom did not marry Ebenbürtig kept their Dutch titles and just had their husband's surname as an addition:

H.K.H. prinses Beatrix der Nederlanden, prinses van Oranje-Nassau, prinses van Lippe-Biesterfeld, mevrouw Van Amsberg.


H.K.H. prinses Margriet der Nederlanden, prinses van Oranje-Nassau, prinses van Lippe-Biesterfeld, mevrouw Van Vollenhoven.

H.K.H. prinses Christina der Nederlanden, prinses van Oranje-Nassau, prinses van Lippe-Biesterfeld, mevrouw Guillermo.

Did the princesses have "mevrouw Van Amsberg/Van Vollenhoven/Guillermo" in official documents, and if not, when were they styled with their husband's surname?
