For Wilhelmina and Hendrik of Mecklenburg-Schwerin's marriage (he was the half-brother of Queen Alexandrine of Denmark's father) it was stipulated that offspring would be:
HRH prince(ss) of the Netherlands, prince(ss) of Orange-Nassau, duke/duchess of Mecklenburg Schwerin
When Juliana married Bernhard:
HRH princess of the Netherlands, princess of Orange-Nassau, princess of Lippe-Biesterfeld
When Beatrix married Claus:
HRH prince of the Netherlands, prince of Orange-Nassau, jonkheer of Amsberg.
When Margriet married Pieter:
HH prince of Orange-Nassau, van Vollenhoven
When Maurits married Marilene:
mr/mss van Lippe Biesterfeld van Vollenhoven
When Bernhard married Annette:
mr/mss van Vollenhoven
When Constantijn married Laurentien:
Count(ess) of Orange-Nassau, jonkheer/jonkvrouwe of Amsberg
When Willem-Alexander married Maxima:
HRH princess of the Netherlands, princess of Orange-Nassau
Irene and Christina married without consent and the styling of their children was according to normal civil law of the age. Taking their familyname and in case of Irene title and style from their father.
Magriet's younger sons both married without consent too and it was announced that their children would be mr/mss van Vollenhoven like the children of their brother Bernhard.
When Friso married Mabel he lost his prince of the Netherlands title but retained his HRH and personal title of prince of Orange-Nassau. He was also created count of Orange-Nassau of Amsberg and his daughters inherited this noble style from him.
This in contrast to their cousins Eloise, Claus-Casimir and Leonore who as potential heir(esse)s of the throne have a royal title even if it is not princely. When they marry during the reign of their uncle they will need to apply for permission and the marriage bill will determine the style, title and name of their offspring.
