The devant de corsage that Queen Wilhelmina is wearing must be dating from the end of the 19th century or early 20th century. Perhaps making use of some lose stones of the inheritance of prince Hendrik for matching the new weddinggift parure.
The drawing of the Amsterdam Wedding Gift Parure does not show any devant-de-corsage. Only an enormous diademe and an even enormous collier and two equal bracelets
The inauguration of princess Wilhelmina as Queen of the Netherlands took place in 1898. She was the youngest queen in history -just eighteen years old - as well as being the first female monarch. The royal family had lost a lot of support among the population during the reign of her father, king Willem III. Wilhelmina was able to restore faith in the monarchy and grew into a well-respected 'Mother of the People'.

Queen Wilhelmina's reign spanned half a century. The final years in particular  established her reputation, as she guided the kingdom through the difficult years of World War II during her exile in England.

Queen Wilhelmina is known as a steadfast, self-willed woman who regarded kingship as something close to a divine calling.

Queen Wilhelmina married the German prince Hendrik van Mecklenburg-Schwerin in 1901. They had one child: princess Juliana (1909-2004).

The devant-de-corsage worn by Queen Beatrix in Luxembourg 1981 looks like a large butterfly-shaped bow of diamonds with a big central sapphire and then two sapphire pendants dangling under it.
