Dutch regency named

March 30, 1909

Both houses of the States General have approved a bill that would institute a regency if Queen Wilhelmina dies in childbirth - and the child survives. The queen is expected to give birth to her first child in the next two weeks.
Wilhelmina's mother, Queen Emma, the consort of the late King Willem III, will be named as Regent for the child, "and in default of the Queen Mother to the Prince Consort," the New York Times reported today.
