Princess Irene Emma Elisabeth of the Netherlands, Princess of Orange-Nassau, Princess of Lippe-Biesterfeld (born 5 August 1939) is the second child of Queen Juliana of the Netherlands and Prince Bernhard of Lippe-Biesterfeld.
In the public eye since birth, Irene made headlines when she and her family fled during World War II, first to Britain and then to Canada.
Her decision to convert to Catholicism and to marry the eldest son and heir of one of the pretenders to the Spanish throne caused a crisis in both the Dutch royal family and government, bringing her into the world spotlight once again.
A disarmament and nature activist, she is now well known for her work with nature.
