Queen’s niece marries for second time

Princess Margarita de Bourbon de Parme, the daughter of queen Beatrix’s sister Irene, married lawyer Tjalling ten Cate on Saturday.

It is Margarita’s second marriage. The couple are expecting a baby in August.
Margarita and her first husband Edwin de Roy van Zuydewijn caused uproar during their marriage by accusing Beatrix and her court of spying on them.
