Storyline

Berhard tells Maxima and some research journalist in 2003/4 how he accidentally met her then young father in Argentina during the war. Queen Wilhelmina, who absurdly conceived a major boast for the Orange dynasty's socio-political role by constitutional reform, had resorted to suicide threat in order to make him accept exile in Londen, Juliana in Canada. Benno still had a mind of his own, concluding from countless contacts Churchill was in a sense conspiring with the Nazis and hence wanted to accept a gubernatorial role in occupied Holland.

Trivia

During World War II, Bernhard is seen meeting a British agent in London named Fleming, who is interested when Bernhard orders a vodka martini, "shaken, not stirred". The man is obviously Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond, who prince Bernhard really met during World War II. Bernhard's reputation as a womanizer led to a myth that Fleming based his character partially on the prince, although there's no real evidence of that. Fleming did however create a villain named Count Lippe for his novel Thunderball, referencing Bernhard's title as prince of Lippe-Biesterfeld. See more »
