I don't think it will be a tiara event, it never was at least. We havent had those for ages, the only exception being the pre-inauguration party in 2013.

Was the photo taken at Het Loo?

Quotes from an interview Mr. van Vollenhoven had with a newspaper (i'll check if i can find the entire interview online)

Of the Dutch, this couple has always been my very favorite. Loved seeing them for the last many decades. Always look pleasant and caring of each other. They have been blessed with a long and happy marriage. I hope they have many more.

It will almost not be "an event" at all ;)
The couple will have a private party with the wedding staff (if i understand correctly they do this every 5 years), the couple will be wearing their outfit as it was then P.Margriet her wedding dress, her husband his air force uniform. This year also their children will attend.

In february they will go on a week long cruise with children (and grandchildren i assume) and then Pieter jokes in the interview "after that we will be bankrupt so after that all will be quiet again"

50 years is definitely a major milestone. Congratulations :flowers:

Pieter was in a strange position when he married. Though unlike current Royal husbands he didn't gain a title, he and his wife were not private citizens. Unlike other countries where princesses had to give up their place if they married a commoner (Sweden) or the children were untitled at least, his wife remained a part of the royal family and his children were titled and in line of succession. In a time when most women in public were known as Mrs husbands first name, it was an odd position fir a man to be in. And unlike his brother in law Claus, he didn't have a set position as his wife was not heir. Working in the public sector, there would always be doubts about how he got the position.

Wishing an amazing couple many more happy years. Hopefully their whole family was together to celebrate.

Yes, if I'm not mistaken, Pieter van Vollenhoven is the only current European royal husband who has been a full-time royal, with the exception of the husbands of the queens regnant, and he did at least gain membership of the Royal House when he married.

My,oh my!
You're not kidding?

Yep, surprising as it sounds, it is how they are said to celebrate. Here they are in the clothes 50 years ago.

And I must say that it is unusual to see no babies in this family

Marengo 01-09-2017 01:14 PM

Unbelievvable indeed; I feel old just by looking at these photos.

Nice to see the entire family together. I believe the pghoto is taken in the stables of Het Loo Palace. The carriage is the one that Pieter and Margriet used on their wedding day and at Prinsjesdag.

Countessmeout 01-09-2017 01:21 PM

Beautiful family. Happy the couppe were able to have their entire family together to celebrate such an important anniversary. :flowers:

I love they took the photo infront of the wedding carriage:smile:

Lee-Z 01-09-2017 01:51 PM

Mr. Pieter thanks everybody who congratulated the couple via twitter and tweeted an old picture of the two, joking "my glasses have changed" ;)

Wedding of Margriet and Pieter,the wedding that won the hearts of the Dutch even though many opposed as Pieter was "just an ordinary citizen",and frumpiness still very much ruled the sixties and perceptions.They have proved wrong.All of them.I recall the announcement...and ofcourse the day off from school on occasion of the wedding...wonderfull,cold but wonderfull..We've,my family that is,always loved "Prince"Pieter,for if there would be one to deserve to be elevated to that title,it would be Pieter van Vollenhoven more then anyone else.For all his work and relentless input for safety both domestic and internationally and for being the ROCK of the RF for decades,always there to advise,to console,just to listen or in any form,he's a Jewel in our Crown and we all can not thank him enough.
Thank you Prof.mr.Pieter and Princess Margriet and congratulations!!

The couple had celebrated their golden wedding with their family and the wedding staff at the Het Loo Palace on January 10th.
Prince Maurits(their oldest son) and Prince Floris(their youngest son) told the Dutch TV-program "Blue Blood" about their parents.

Thank you for your story, it was really interesting to read it.
So, if I understand you rightly, you have witnessed all the important events in the life of this family- i.e. birth of their kids, their christenings, upbringing, their engagements and weddings, births their own kids.
It's amazing, I think.
Their golden wedding is an emotional event for you, isn't it?
