567

Queen Juliana’s weakness for the preternatural had landed her back in Dutch newspaper headlines: She had invited to the palace a crackpot from California.

Juliana & the Healer

1277

To help princess Marijke, who was born with cataracts on both eyes, Queen Juliana asked healer Greet Hofmans, whose influence over Queen Juliana grew over the years.

Queen Juliana and Prince Bernhard visited Harry Truman in the remodeled White House. Juliana seemed to be enjoying herself and thanked the U.S. for helping during and after WWII.

Frankly, a good many photographs . made Juliana…

As the first European sovereign to make a state visit to France since World War II, Queen Juliana of The Netherlands was treated to the full red carpet in Paris.

“First there was the burgemeesters’ convention,” groaned a fat mayor, “then the Queen’s birthday; on Saturday the abdication and then the inauguration. I don’t know when I’ll ever be able to get out of my morning coat.”

It was an amiable protest, for, like nearly every other Hollander, the mayor…
