Childhood When she was a child she didn’t have a lot of friends to play with so she was normally learning. This also caused Her Majesty to be closer to her parents. After her half brother died she became the heiress apparent which allowed her to become the princess.
Why did the Royal Family move? Her Majesty had wanted to remain in the Netherlands but the Royal Family sailed to London. This was chosen because the Dutch Royal Family needed to be in the most safe position incase something happened.
During the War There were strains between Queen Wilhelmina and the Dutch government but worldwide everybody considered her greatly. To keep spirits up Her Majesty would broadcast radio messages. While living in her country home she was almost killed by a bomb.
End of War As soon as the war had concluded Queen Wilhelmina chose to live at a mansion in the Hague. Her Majesty would ride on her bicycle during the eight months she was there to encourage her people.
