Wedding pictures of Willem Alexander and Constantin's younger brother to Mabel. Mabel had an unfortunate romantic past, including be involved with a gangster. The Dutch Royal house needs the approval of Parliament to get married. THe Dutch parliament balked and didn't give their approval (they only had a small amt of information). Prince Johan Friso gave of up place in line for the Orange-Nassau throne and married Mabel. Mabel has an avant guarde taste in clothes. I like her wedding dress, even with the bows...if only VIctor & Rolf had stopped th bows on the train.
