On her marriage Aimée acquired the title of Her Highness, Princess of Orange-Nassau, van Vollenhoven as a result of her husband's status as a Prince of Orange-Nassau. Since Floris did not seek parliamentary approval for his marriage, owing to the remote chance of his succession to the throne, he lost his place in line to the Dutch throne when he married Aimée. However, he and his family still participate in family events such as the investiture of his cousin and weddings.
