A tribute for Remembrance Day that focuses on a harrowing escape to safety during WWII. Amongst the violence and terror, two countries an ocean apart became forever bonded by blood in more ways than one. Princess Margriet Francisca was famously born in Ottawa in 1943, while the Dutch royal family lived in Canadian exile during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands. As way of thanks for the family’s treatment in Canada, the Dutch royal family sent 100,000 tulips to Ottawa in the fall of 1945. It was the start of a beautiful friendship that has lasted to the present day.
