I hope this is the daddy his daughters remember, and not the silent body on the bed with tubes going in all directions and machines beeping.

Mabel has released some new (private) pictures of Friso and their family:










 Star the girls are lucky that the Dutch royals are close knit , it's talking and remember a person and telling stories that keeps memories alive, and as long as he is remembered in smiles, in tears, at Christmas , special occassion he will live on within the family .

Couldn't agree more with you, Bumbershoot and Tiger. Those photos are to be treasured. And I have no doubt that Luana and Zaria themselves are/will be treasured always by their Grannie Bea, and their uncles Wax/Constantijn and their aunts, who will all help to keep Friso "alive" (in a positive way) for these dear little girls. And of course, most of all, by Mabel, who knows exactly what it is to lose a father at their age.

Regardless of how deep their grief, I think this family will do OK because of their exceptional closeness.

I don't think that Friso cared much about that royal thing, he easily gave up his place in the succession. So he would not have wanted a "who is who" at his grave or memorial, so maybe they went with that.

Also that way they received less media attention and could focus more on their grief.

I think he gave up his place in the succession because the government had objected to his choice of wife but they both cared enough "about the royal" thing for her to be titled and royally styled.

No, the government objected because they had lied to the Prime Minister about the extend of Mabel's connection with a top criminal in the Netherlands.

According to an interview with (close) friends of Friso and Mabel, Friso was (very) affronted by the declaration and words of the former Prime Minister Balkenende.

Technically it was a slap. They really had thought that Maxima had paved their way. After all Maxima's father was much closer involved into organized crime, they had lied about it and were caught and they still got married with all the fanfare. It was almost same same but this time the decision was polar opposite.

DRF has some very  dubious stories

In the end of the day with all their Hague court engagement and connection If It was up to them Max's father would have been at the wedding too!

IMO Maxima's father's connections were worse.

Wasn't there some suggestion that Mabel had been working for the Dutch Secret Service?

Edited to add:


Found it!

"Former Secret Service agent Frits Hoekstra has published a book, disclosing that the Dutch princess Mabel must have been working for the Dutch Secret Service AIVD. Hoekstra notes that:
•before her graduation, Mabel worked at ABN-AMRO, SHELL, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the United Nations (the latter two require background checks as conducted by the AIVD)
•she had a relationship with Muhamed Sacirbey, the Bosnian Minister of Foreign Affairs
•when she got engaged with Dutch Prince Friso, the Dutch Secret Service completed her background check within a week, something that would normally have taken months."

Of course they were far worse. But at the end it was her father's decision and not Maxima's, while it was Mabel herself who had associated with twilighty characters.

I agree. The government couldn't find fault with someone who had been a child during that period in Argentine history. An adult though would have been a different story. So excluding Maxima's father was the appropriate decision.

I agree It's not Max's fault but what about Bea's morals?

I'm guessing Argentina and Holland don't have a lot of trade/political links but personally I find it quite dodgy that the Queen of Holland has major and intimate links to a fascist regime. It just seems very unsavoury to me.
