Prince Bernhard changed his will

Prince Bernhard, father of queen Beatrix who died in 2004, altered his will just six days before his death, news agency GPD reported on Wednesday. Beatrix, her three sisters, and Bernhard’s two illegitimate daughters Alicia and Alexia were all given equal shares in his inheritance, GPD says.

However, the agency says, court documents show that Beatrix and the other princesses appear to have bought out their half-sisters’ claim on three pieces of property in Soest.
Some 2.5 years after his death, the inheritance has not yet been finalised, GPD says. An Italian villa has been up for sale for more than a year.
