Doctors see Bernhard over breathing difficulties

27 October 2004

AMSTERDAM Prince Bernhard, the 93-year-old husband of the late Queen Juliana, was visited by his doctors at Paleis Soestdijk on Wednesday to discuss his recent breathing difficulties, the Government Information Service (RVD) said.

The prince was given the results of medical tests and told what could be done to to alleviate his problems.

Prince Bernhard has undergone regular observation in hospital in recent weeks for shortness of breath. But he was not sick and still received visitors. Bernhard has had regular problems with his bronchial tubes.

The RVD has denied speculation that the prince's condition had suddenly deteriorated. A spokesman also said earlier this month that a 93-year-old suffering from shortness of breath is not if(flashinstalled == 2){document.write("");}else{document.write("[img][/img]");}

The German-born Bernhard met the then Princess Juliana in 1936 during the Winter Olympics in Garmisch Partenkirchen, Germany, and their engagement was announced seven months later. They were married on 7 January 1937.

The couple's first daughter, Queen Beatrix, took the Dutch throne when her mother abdicated in 1980. The royal couple also had three other daughters: Irene, Margriet and Christina.

Queen Juliana died on 20 March 2004 and was interred in the royal family tomb in the Nieuwe Kerk in Delft 10 days later. Despite initial concerns of poor health, Prince Bernhard was fit enough to attend the funeral.

The RVD announced today that it is not going well with the health of prince Bernhard. He has lungcancer and there were found also cancercells on other places in his body.

The prince is getting weaker and weaker, the RVD said.

From the RVD:

Communique van de Rijksvoorlichtingsdienst
Zijne Koninklijke Hoogheid Prins Bernhard der Nederlanden is de afgelopen weken poliklinisch in het UMC-AZU behandeld wegens klachten van kortademigheid. De klachten werden veroorzaakt door vocht in de borstholte. Het vocht is verwijderd, waardoor de klachten verminderden. Bij onderzoek van het vocht werden cellen verkregen die kunnen wijzen op uitzaaiingen van een tumor. In 1994 is Prins Bernhard geopereerd aan een tumor van de darm en in 2000 aan een borsttumor. De Prins beperkt zich in zijn activiteiten omdat hij een vermindering van krachten ervaart.

Gabriella 11-17-2004 05:36 PM

What sad news. You are right though Alisa, he has had a very long and full life. Hopefully when he does pass, it will be painless and peaceful. Poor Queen Beatrix, she has dealt with alot the past few years...

I had hoped that Prince Bernhard would be able to see his daughter's Silver Jubilee celebrations. Sadly, it looks as if that will not be the case.

Hopefully, he will be free from pain.

What a difficult year it would be for the Dutch royal family if they lost Prince Bernhard now, too. Not only is it right before the Christmas holidays, but also having lost Queen Juliana earlier this year, too.

Duke of Lippe-Saalfeld 11-18-2004 08:33 AM

it is sad that everytime a few weeks before a celebration someone died in the Queen's family. Like her husband, Prince Claus died before the Queen celebrate her 65th birthday, and her mother Juliana died some weeks before Queen's Day and the 95th birthday of Juliana. And now (with next year her Silver Jubilee) her father dies

Duke of Lippe-Saalfeld 11-18-2004 08:34 AM

Prince Bernhard is the oldest royal of Europe (don't know oldest of the world for sure). If he dies, Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh becomes the eldest royal of Europe, and as runner-up Prince Rainier III (who is also not very healthy anymore)

Grand Duke Jean of Luxembourg as well. He was born in 1921. But how sad for Queen Beatrix and her sisters to lose their mother and now might soon lose their father in the same year.
