Two Dutch groups

Recently added these postcards to my collection.   The first group shows the newly married Crown Princess Beatrix and Prince Claus of the Netherlands on March 10, 1966.  The group photo includes family members, attendants and royal guests.  Beatrix's youngest sister, Princess Christina, a bridesmaid, looks like she wandered in .. or was in need of a quick escape!

The second group photo was taken on September 10, 1968: the baptism of Prince Maurits of Orange-Nassau, eldest son of Princess Margriet and Pieter van Vollenhoven.

This photo includes the families and the godparents, including then Hereditary Prince Alois-Konstantin of Löwenstein-Rosenberg-Wertheim
