The marriage of Willem-Alexander and Maxima of the Netherlands could have been another one had his grandmother not abdicated. Juliana was still alive in 2002 and WA would have been the heir of the heiress apparent (in 1983 the succession became gender neutral). |
In Luxembourg they might miss out on one as well if Guillaume marries during his grandfather's life.
