The Dutch Government Information Service (RVD) has released new photos of Prince Constantijn and Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands.

Two solo images a piece were released of the royals, taken by Martijn Beekman, in the Royal Palace of Amsterdam in September. The RVD did not release any photos of the couple together.

These photographs were taken and released several months after those of the other members of the Dutch Royal Family – except Princess Beatrix. Photos of the majority of the family were released in February of this year. Images of the former queen had been released in the autumn of 2017.

Last year, several images, including some family snaps, were released for Prince Constantijn’s 50th birthday.

Prince Constantijn is the younger surviving brother of King Willem-Alexander. He married the former Laurentien Brinkhorst – now Princess Laurentien – in 2001. They have three children: Countess Eloise, Count Claus-Casimir and Countess Leonore.
