HH Prince Maurits of Orange-Nassau, van Vollenhoven and Marilène van den Broek
May 29 & 30, 1998
Prince Maurits, the eldest of the four sons of Princess Margriet of the Netherlands and Pieter van Vollenhoven, was the first to walk down the aisle. He married Marie-Hélène (she goes by Marilène) van den Broek, the former Dutch foreign minister's daughter he met while studying at the University of Groningen.

all three of her future sisters-in-law and one of her husband's cousins would also choose the Ears of Wheat Tiara.
