  • Description

    CROWN PRINCESS BEATRIX OF HOLLAND AND HER WEST GERMAN FIANCE CLAUS VON AMSBERG RECEIVED A TICKERTAPE WELCOME FROM THOUSANDS OF CHEERING PEOPLE WHEN THEY PAID AN OFFICIAL VISIT TO ROTTERDAM TODAY (FRIDAY).

    IT WAS THEIR THIRD TEST OF PUBLIC POPULARITY SINCE THE ANNOUNCEMENT THAT THE PRINCESS WAS TO MARRY A GERMAN. YESTERDAY, FORMER RESISTANCE FIGHTERS DISTRIBUTED LEAFLETS URGING PEOPLE TO STAY INDOORS AND LEAVE FLAGPOLES BARE.

    BUT THERE WERE NO INCIDENTS AS THE COUPLE TOURED THE CITY IN AN OPEN CAR UNDER A DELUGE OF TICKERTAPE AND FLOWERS. REINFORCED POLICE HAD TO INTERVENE ONLY TO CHECK WELLWISHERS, WHOSE ENTHUSIASM SLOWED DOWN THE CAR AT SOME PLACES.

    THE PRINCESS AND HERR VON AMSBERG EARLIER MADE A TRIP ROUND ROTTERDAM HARBOUR. THE COUPLE HAVE ALREADY BEEN GIVEN A RIOTOUS WELCOME IN THE HACUE AND A MORE RESERVED ONE IN AMSTERDAM.

    ROTTERDAM, THE BIGGEST PORT IN THE WORLD, WAS RAZED TO THE GROUND BY THE GERMAN AIR FORCE DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR, AND THERE HAVE BEEN DEMONSTRATIONS THERE AGAINST THE PRINCESS'S CHOICE OF A FUTURE CONSORT. THEY WERE ACCOMPANIED ON THE VISIT BY QUEEN JULIANA AND PRINCE BERNHARD -- A MOVE SEEN AS A SAFEGUARD AGAINST POSSIBLE INCIDENTS.
