The princess will wed Tjalling Ten Cate in a low-key ceremony in the Netherlands.

Because Margarita, daughter of Princess Irene and a niece of Queen Beatrix, is divorced, the couple will have a civil wedding.

The couple - who are expecting a baby in August - had hoped to keep the news secret, but Dutch television station RTL broke the news yesterday (29.04.08).

The princess was first married in 2001, where the celebrations were infamously marred by her quarrelling with new husband Edwin de Roy van Zuydewijn in scenes shown on TV.

The couple separated in 2004 and their divorced was finalised in 2006.
