Greetings, I have been reading up on Prince Bernhard van Lippe -Biesterfeld , (1911- 2004) , German born, but then prince consort to Dutch Princess , later, Queen Juliana . A German prince, Bernhard became a Dutch citizen on 4th December 1936 and married Princess Juliana on 7th January 1937. Bernhard , Juliana, their two baby daughters, and Queen Wilhelmina fled to London at the time of the German invasion of The Netherlands. Juliana and the children went on to Canada, Queen Wilhelmina stayed in London working with the Dutch government in exile. Bernhard went on a mysterious mission to Paris, then was largely based in London. Bernhard gave a radio interview in which he called Hitler a 'tyrant' and declared that Britain would defeat Germany, he worked with British intelligence and the Dutch resistance in exile, served with the Allies in liberating The Netherlands. Seemingly to have made a break with Germany and having an impeccable war record. Yet recent scholarship has not been kind to him. Philip Droge's 'Beroep: meester spion het geheime leven van Prins Bernhard ' published in 2002, ( 'Occupation Master Spy: the Secret of Prince Bernhard) depicts Bernhard as hiding the fact that he was once a committed Nazi, that he was lucky not to be interned along with other Germans when arriving in Britain in 1940, that one of his circle could be connected to a security leak which jeopardised the success of Operation Market Garden. This writer was also quite scathing about his post-war career The question of Bernhard's Nazi past was also the subject of a 2010 book by Dutch writer and Journalist Anejete van der Zijl titled ' Bernhard een verborgen geschiedenis' ( Bernhard a hidden history') Looks like his legacy will continue to face criticism.
