Princess Irene wants as let scatter in South Africa”

Princess Irene wants to take after her death not to be buried in the family tomb in the Nieuwe Kerk in Delft. Prefer to see the princess that her ashes will be scattered in South Africa.

In an interview with the AD says princess Irene (77) that she is very devoted to being the country. “I want my ashes where scattered. It is a unique place, it is so very special.”

That the love for the country is large, is also evidenced by the fact that the second daughter of former queen Juliana and prince Bernhard in South Africa is a nature reserve set up: Bergplaas, in the south-east of the country.

The scatter of the axis of princess Irene in South Africa would be particularly. Almost all the Oranges are after their death to be buried in the vaults in Delft. Prince Johan Friso broke in 2013 with a long tradition: he was buried in Lage Vuursche, near the house of his mother princess Beatrix.
