Clip-clap, clip-clap through the tidy Hague, good motherly Queen Wilhelmina of The Netherlands clattered off last week in her State Coach to open Parliament. With her rode buxom, schoolgirlish Crown Princess Juliana and the Queen’s fat but studiously self-effacing Prince Consort-Henry of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. A smart troop of cavalry gave dash…
