In front of the Nieuwe Kerk
This is the original entrance of the Nieuwe Kerk, in Amsterdam. The former stained-glass window was bricked up when the organ was installed.
This church is no longer used for services, however, it was here that the coronation of Queen Beatrix took place in 1980, as well as the wedding of Willem-Alexander, Prince of Orange, to princess Máxima in 2002.
|From Amsterdam 2012|
Princess Máxima is a descendant, through her father, of King Afonso III of Portugal and many noble families of the Iberian Peninsula.
