Queen Juliana (wearing the Dutch Diamond Bandeau) and Prince Bernhard of The Netherlands hosted a splendid 30th Wedding Anniversary Gala at the Hotel Gooiland on this day in 1967, to mark their 30th Wedding Anniversary in the midst of the series of celebrations for the Wedding of their third daughter Princess Margriet, from whom a Gala Dinner had been hosted by the Dutch Government days previously. The Queen and Prince were joined by Princess Beatrix (in Queen Emma’s Diamond Tiara) and Prince Claus, Princess Margriet (wearing the Antique Pearl Tiara) and  Pieter van Vollenhoven, Princess Irene (wearing the Ruby Peacock Tiara and her Ruby Earrings), and Princess Christina (in the Laurel Wreath Tiara).
