    1. I’ve only ever heard of Margriet, Irene and Christina, the three younger daughters of Queen Juliana and Prince Bernhard, to be the sisters of Beatrix. Who are the half sisters?

    3. Hello Anon 7:59 PM, the children from the marriage of prince Bernhard and Queen Juliana are the four sisters Beatrix, Irene, Margriet and Christina. Sadly, (almost) all people know prince Bernhard had extra-marital affairs, so yes, in fact, the four sisters had two half-sisters.
      I only wanted to explain this for those who didn't know, but please, let's not stick to that or dig deeper. It's about the passing of a beloved family member, not about 'sins of the past'.

    4. Thank you Rosalyn. As I had never heard of this I just asked an innocent question, which I thought was a normal thing to do. It was not my intention to make people angry.

    5. I'm happy to help, Anon 3:22 PM. Of course there's nothing wrong with asking a question about something you didn't know.
      Have a nice day!

  2. My condolences to my own Royal Family. The loss is big and hard for them. Christina was a warm, kind and very down-to-earth woman. She was rarely in the spotlights, but worked even harder to support classical music. She founded the popular and beloved 'Prinses Christina Concours'. She loved art and especially music. She sang sometimes during public occasions and even released her own CD!
    She will be missed by her family and especially by all those who knew her passion for and support of classical music in the Netherlands.
    My thoughts are with the family. I'm sure a lot of people will pray for them.
