We don't usually do news around here, but yesterday was a big news day for the extended Dutch royal family.
First, another wedding is in the works: Prince Jaime of Bourbon-Parma, the son of the late Carlos Hugo, Duke of Parma, and Princess Irene of the Netherlands (and a cousin to King Willem-Alexander), will marry Viktória Cservenyák on October 5th in Apeldoorn.
Not long after that happy announcement, a sadder one came: Prince Friso of Orange-Nassau, son of Princess Beatrix and the late Prince Claus and brother to the King, has died. Friso was trapped in an avalanche last year and has been in a coma ever since. He was 44 years old. He is survived by his wife, Princess Mabel, and their two daughters, Luana and Zaria.
