Re: The reason why some royals are attending Grand Duke Jean's funeral
" Im a bit saddened that the Dutch Royal couple decided not to attend. They had no trouble in attending the King's day celebration and afterwards flying to Greece to attend the Greek Easter celebrations to start a family holiday but they did pass over the opportunity to attend the funeral of another Benelux former head of state and the former head of the other branch of they Nassau-dynasty.
To me this is a missed opportunity if not a sneer. Yes Princess Beatrix was there but Willem-Alexander and Maxima should have been there as well"
Fully agree here Johan!
