Happy Birthday to Princess Christina of the Netherlands, aunt of King Willem-Alexander, who turns 70 today. The youngest daughter of Prince Bernhard and Queen Juliana, and younger sister of Princess Beatrix, Princess Marijke Christina was born nearly blind, since her mother had contracted German measles during the pregnancy. However, with the aid of special glasses, she was able to have a normal childhood and pursued an education in classical music in Canada. In 1975, Princess Christina married Cuban Jorge Guillermo, abdicating her rights to the Dutch Throne. The couple had three children, but divorced in 1996. Princess Christina lives between the US, London, and Italy. She has recorded several CDs and has a Music Foundation in the Netherlands, but does not carry out any official engagements. We wish HRH many Happy Returns!
