It comes naturally after 76 yeurs of "petticoat reigns." "She reminds me of her grandmother," said the old Dutchman In talking about Crown Princess Beatrix and her marriage Thursday to a former German diplomat, Glaus von Amsberg. Beatrix is in line to inherit the throne in a series of queensliips that began with Queen Emma's regency for Wllholminn In 1890. Grandmother Wilhclrninn WHS described by Winston Churchill (luring World War II as the only "man" Jo the Dutch government In exile In London. This praise came when she fired wavering Premier Jan do Goer In the fight against the Nazis. On another occasion Churchill called the stout-hearted queen the bravest king in exile. The royal Dutch matriarchy has served as a symbol of unity to an Individualistic, independ- ent-mindcd people sharply divided over the centuries into many political and religious denominations. The Dutch queons -- and Crown Princess Beatrix — have shown a determination along with womanly wile In getting their own wny with Parliaments dominated by men. Wllhelmlna, on ascending to the throne In 1898, said she was "ready to accept the splendid but weighty task," Her engagement two years later to Duke Henry of Mecklenberg-Schwerin raised concern among the Dutch people mis- She won them over, trustful of foreign influences. Wllhelmlnn reigned 50 yours before abdicating in favor of her daughter, Juliana, and withdrawing entirely from public life. She devoted herself to the study of religious subjects and writing «n autobiography — "Lonely But Not Alone." She died in November 19G2. Juliana did away with some Clements of the old-fashioned court formalities that still remained. She went to live in a palace In the country, at Soest- rlijk, when; Informal life was possible. She does not like to see even the slightest bending of knee by persons being presented. From her devout Orthodox Protestant mother, amiable Juliana got her mysticism which landed the Dutch royal family In a crisis in the summer of 1956, She clung to a soothsayer, against the advice of the government, In her motherly hope to restore oycsifiht to her youngest daughter Christina, nearly blind in one eye. Christina, now 19, has overcome this handicap somewhat and will be a bridesmaid at sister Beatrix's wedding. Another crisis arose in June lilG'l when daughter Irene defied government and family to become a Roman Catholic and married Prince Carlos of Bourbon Parma, a pretender to the Spanish throne. Irene, 27, lives In virtual exile but enjoys her mother's embrace on private visits back to her homeland. The ujwoar over Crown Prln- rlage to Von Amsberg, who had schoolboy links with the Nazi regime, brought Jullnmi to her side as queen and mother . "This is the choice of her heart and from a human view we believe it is an excellent one," Juliana told those who Helpful Hints Color, colleges and co-eds arc a natural trio.

(Note: Even the most, riotous color combination come quietly through tht! wash — if they're color-fast.) raised doubts about a German being at the right hand of their future queen. And Juliana quieted the protests by promising she has no intention of abdicating — though this report had circulated since Beatrix became of ngc, She Is 29, Von Amsberg 38. Before World War II, Holland was probably the most pro-Gorman country In Europe. The Nazi occupation changed tills, A German princess ,however, molded the royal matriarchy.
