Actually the foreign mixing goes back forever... way before Bernhard. The father of Queen Juliana (1909-2004), Prince Hendrik, was German as well, as well as the mother of the earlier Queen Wilhelminia (1880-1962) Queen Emma etc etc. So following Roberts calculations Amalia might end up being less then 1% dutch. Nobody really cares here! In royalty it has been intentional princes and princesses marry 'foreigners', as people on a royal level (like viscounts, earls and how those people are called) there are just too few locals available. I will be flamed for this but while UK citizens are much more "xenophobic" and seem to keep distance themselves from the rest of Europe then Holland, I never heared them make an issue that Elizabeths husband, Philip, is a Greek, a country culturally further away from England then Germany from the Netherlands.
The German husbands of our (former) Queens were more judged by their actions. Prince Bernhard who now died married Juliana in 1937, before the II WW
, and fought with the allieds. Prince Claus was much more controversial when he married Beatrix in 1966, because this was only 21 years after the II WW
and then Dutch didn't like Germans, but Claus stole the heart (much more then Bernhard actually) by distancing himself from anything military and having "liberal" ideas and deeds connected to devopment and human rights, not resembling in anything the cliches we then still had about Germans (right wing, agressive, formalistic, humorless, bratwurst-beer-lederhosen). It was never a problem for instance Maxima, the wife of the next king Willem Alexander, is from Argentina, the critisizm only focussed on the track record of her father in the former military regime of Argentina.
