YEAREND PICTURES 2002.
Dutch Queen Beatrix is comforted by her son Johan Friso (R) as her son
and Dutch Crown Prince Willem-Alexander (C) looks on during the funeral
service of Dutch Prince Claus in the Nieuwe kerk church in Delft 15
October, 2002. The 76 year-old Prince, who fought hostility to his
German roots to become one of the Netherlands most popular royals, died
on October 6, from Parkinsons disease and pneumonia in Amsterdam's
Academic Medical Centre hospital. The German Born aristocrat, who
sacrificed a career in the West German diplomatic service to marry then
Princess Beatrix in 1966, gained respect for his fight against prostate
cancer, Parkinsons disease, kidney damage and depression. Burdened by
the legacy of his World War Two service in a German tank division in
Italy, Claus von Amsberg took Dutch citizenship and became a popular
partner to the Dutch Queen in the House of Orange as he captured hearts
with his verve and charm. REUTERS/Jerry Lampen
