Tomorrow I'll be breaking from this series for a Victoria Day post, but will be back to it on Tuesday. Here we have more views of tulip beds.
More information panels in the park examine the bond between Canada and the Netherlands, including this one featuring Crown Princess Juliana and her daughters- including Margriet, born here in Ottawa during the war.
Another panel features this panorama from the Netherlands.
I noticed this set of Shetland sheepdogs together, watching their human. The Shelties were tethered to the backpack in the shot.
Then I returned to the tulip beds.
This car was parked outside of a pavilion area, which will turn up in a post after the weekend.
More of the panels. During her time in Ottawa, Crown Princess Juliana was busy working on behalf of her people, all while raising her daughters at a home in Rockcliffe Park. Her husband, Prince Bernhard, would visit as often as possible, working with his mother-in-law Queen Wilhelmina out of Britain on the efforts to aid the Dutch resistance.
Princess Margriet was born here during those years at the Civic Hospital. The government of the time passed a law designating the maternity suite extraterritorial, thus preserving the princess's royal status. This portrait of mother and daughters was taken by Yousuf Karsh, who operated out of Ottawa throughout his career and was by then well known. We'll see more of Karsh's work in the next post in the series on Tuesday.
