  • Description

    QUEEN JULIANA OF THE NETHERLANDS SAID TONIGHT (MONDAY) SHE WAS HAPPY THAT HER ELDEST DAUGHTER, PRINCESS BEATRIX HAD DECIDED TO MARRY THE WEST GERMAN DIPLOMAT, CLAUS VON AMSBERG. QUEEN JULIANA FORMALLY ANNOUNCED THE ENGAGEMENT OF THE COUPLE TODAY (MONDAY), BRINGING TO AN END WEEKS OF RUMOUR AND CONTROVERSY.

    THE DECISION WAS NOT POPULAR WITH SOME SECTIONS OF THE DUTCH PEOPLE WHO WERE OPPOSED TO THE PRINCESS MARRYING A GERMAN. HOWEVER, QUEEN JULIANA AND PRINCE BERNHARD SAID THEY HAD FULLY APPROVED OF PRINCESS BEATRIX'S CHOICE.

    PRINCESS BEATRIX AND HER FIANCE SAID THEY HAD GIVEN SOME THOUGHT TO THE HOSTILITY THE ENGAGEMENT WOULD AROUSE, BUT BELIEVED THEY LIVED IN A WORLD WHERE THEIR LIVES WOULD HAVE TO BE BASED ON THE FUTURE.

    THE COUPLE MET AT A PARTY A YEAR AGO. THEY HAVE SAID THEY DO NOT INTEND MARRYING THIS YEAR.
