  • Description

    PRINCESS BEATRIX OF HOLLAND ARRIVED IN LONDON TODAY (THURSDAY) FOR A ONE DAY VISIT, SOON AFTER HER PARENTS' DRAMATIC APPEAL TO THE DUTCH PEOPLE. BUT THE FLIGHT TO LONDON DID NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH SPECULATIONS ABOUT A ROMANCE BETWEEN THE PRINCESS AND AN UN-NAMED MAN.

    LAST NIGHT, QUEEN JULIANA AND PRINCE BERNHARD OF THE NETHERLANDS SAID THAT RUMOURS THAT THE PRINCESS WOULD SHORTLY ANNOUNCE HER ENGAGEMENT WERE PREMATURE. THEY ASKED FOR TIME SO THAT SHE COULD MAKE A CONSIDERED DECISION.

    PRINCESS BEATRIX, HEIR TO THE DUTCH THRONE, IS TWENTY-SEVEN AND TODAY ATTENDED THE CHRISTENING OF THE DAUGHTER OF PRINCESS MARGARETHA OF SWEDEN, AND LONDON BUSINESSMAN, MR. JOHN AMBLER. THE BABY WAS NAMED SIBYLLA LOUISE AND PRINCESS BEATRIX WAS ONE OF THE GODPARENTS.

    (IT IS ONLY A YEAR SINCE THE DUTCH THRONE WAS INVOLVED IN A POLITICAL AND CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS OVER THE ROMANCE OF PRINCESS BEATRIX'S SISTER, IRENE, AND THE SPANISH PRINCE, HUGO CARLOS. TWO MEN ARE THOUGHT TO BE SUITORS FOR PRINCESS BEATRIX'S HAND, ONE IS EITHER BRITISH OR CANADIAN AND THE OTHER A SCANDINAVIAN WORKING IN AMSTERDAM.)
