Knowing Villa Eikenhorst only had its outer walls still standing and the whole inside was totally rebuilt at the time WA & Maxima wanted to make it their family-home I got the impression they were not afraid of turning a place upside-down which made me wonder about the present renovations of HtB.
Thanks for re-assuring me anyway
: Im assuming HM referred to the private
: (Wassenaar) wing when he spoke about their
: living quarters. The main block and
: guest/staff (The Hague) wing are being
: restored but i don't think the lay out of
: those parts of the palace will change much.
: When the private wing was renovated for
: Beatrix and Claus the lay out was changed as
: it has been changed several times since the
: wings were added in the 1730's. Beatrix used
: the paintings of Schouwman depicting the
: menagerie of Stadholder Willem V to be used
: in her private dining room. These hangings
: have been loaned to a museum and will return
: to the palace when the renovation is in a
: later stage.
