The Dutch royal family is involved in a scandal as it emerged that one of its members is to marry someone considered so unsuitable by the Dutch government that they have refused to sanction the marriage. Prince Johan Friso is to marry Mabel Wisse Smit, a former gangster's moll.
A Dutch government press release on the subject stated:
"The Dutch royal family has standards to maintain. She assured us that she had a long term relationship with a mob godfather and was personally involved in murdering and torturing rivals to her lover's drug empire as well as smuggling large quantities of crack in her pants which she handed out to young children outside schools, occasionally blasting away at passing cars with an Uzi that she concealed in her handbag. It has subsequently emerged that she may not have been personally involved in the drugs business and may have simply been shagging a gangster for the money to supplement her student income. The intelligence services have investigated her family for fascist relatives who may have been involved in crimes against humanity, but alas none have been found. We therefore find her quite unsuitable for a position in the monarchy."
