Another article about the rumors that Queen Beatrix will announce her abdiaction today
MonarquÃ*a Confidencial
I like Wa and Máxima... anyway I hope it's not true (and somehow it's hard for me to belive that it's true). I hope Bea will stay Queen a little longer.

If she does this today then Willem-Alexander gets a reign of 36 years before he gets to announce HIS abdication on Catharina-Amalia's 42nd Birthday. Although, I would be surprised if Williem IV, as a man, ever abdicated.

I do not think that will be announced. Maybe later.

If Willem-Alexander will be king, would Amalia then be styled as Princess of Orange?

Niederlande: Spekulation über Beatrix' Rücktritt - Royales - FOCUS Online

The German media picks the topic up, too. To me Beatrix doesn't look like she wants to retire soon. Why should she? She would rob her son of the time he can see his children growing up whilst he is still PoO. My guess is that Beatrix will only abdicate in case of serious illness, if at all.

I hope she doesn´t abdicate. I really like Willem-Alexandre and Maxima, but...I don´t know, I think it´s too soon for them. Wait a few years more, please!

Yes, she will. She already hols the title of Hereditary Princess of Orange, that means that she'll be the next one.

Here is an article in a Danish newspaper that discusses the abdication rumors.

http://kpn.dk/blitz/article1675532.ece

The article talks about the rumors that Queen Beatrix would abdicate on the Prince of Orange's birthday. It says that this is the 3rd or 4th time these rumors have been spread this year.

Have there been many (more than 3 or 4 say) times in the past when media outside Holland or Argentina have picked the story up like this?

I find it hard to believe that a story like this would be one that the media would get one up (i.e. finding out to before they ought to) on the RVD or anyone else who knows... More likely to me that should there be rumours of abdication then an announcement in the next couple of days its just sheer good luck.

Media is the media and picks up on this story each and every year.Says a lot on the lack of grey cells doesn't it.

Well, the Dutch Wikipedia has a whole article about the title of Erfprinses van Oranje and there are quite a lot of Google hits for Erfprinses van Oranje.

Wikipedia is, like this forum, staffed and contributed to by volunteers. Mmore often than not, there are some inaccuracies, so it is best to take what you read on Wikipedia with a grain of salt.

The last Princess of Orange was Anna Pavlovna,nee Grandduchess of Russia.Sophie wasn't I think.More often than not,Wiki is totally wacko.
It is not a heriditary title,it is to the Monarch to bestow and only Him/Her.

The German Boulevard magazine declares at the cover of it's new issue Maxima as sooner Queen.

BUNTE – Das Heft Nr. 19: Inhaltsverzeichnis - BUNTE

The cover can be translated as: Princess Maxima - SOON QUEEN - In the Netherlands it is talked about a change on the throne - The daughter-in-law of Queen Beatrix will be the most shining monarch in Europe

We can think what we want, but I don't think that there will be an abdication in the next days. I think that Beatrix will gain Willem-Alexander and Maxima more time to enjoy their family life.

As Empress said, wikipedia is nog always accurate. In this case it isn't because the title Hereditary Prince or Hereditary Princess of Orange doesn't excist.

Technically the wife takes the title of her husband so Princess Máxima IS the Princess of Orange. However at the time of the engagement/wedding of the Prince of Orange and Princess Máxima it was made known that she would not be adressed as Princess of Orange. That doesn't mean she isn't the Princess of Orange.

But this should be another thread.

Queenece29, thank you for posting this link. Now, it is explained that Beatrix abdication is a mere rumor. Wonder if media were blabbing about abdication so many times this year because they wanted to force palace to make some statement and get some info when potential abdication is possible.
