Het Loo Palace shows from tomorrow on the photos that photographer Vincent Mentzel has made in the last decades of the royal family.
Mentzel made twice an official portrait of Queen Beatrix, in 1980 and 2010. His official photographs formed the basis of her portrait by the Dutch guilder and the familiar dotted postage stamp ‘
As a photographer, he built a special bond with the royal family and he was given the opportunity to also capture more informal moments. This resulted in a series of intimate and personal portraits, of which a selection is on exhibition.
