WWII turned Wilhelmina into a fervent nazi-hater and she understood the anti-German sentiments after the war very well.
: In the thread below about Prince Richard, Stig
: posted comments made over the years by
: Prince Richard. I was a little surprised by
: the one regarding Queen Ingrid and her
: dislike for Germans. Was this based solely
: on the occupation of Denmark by Germany in
: WWII? Or did she have a dislike for
: Germans before WWII? Both of Queen
: Ingrid's grandmothers were German, as well
: as her mother in law, and sister in law.
: Also, Queen Ingrid was one of Prince
: Richard's Godmothers. Prince Richard
: himself was half Swedish. His mother and
: Queen Ingrid were said to be childhood
: friends. Was Prince Richard exaggerating
: when he made the comments about Queen Ingrid
: and Germans?
