This will be the first time I will see a royal inauguration. If that's what's about to happen.

Wow...I wasn't expecting this at all. I hope it's about her abdication because it would be dreadful to announce one's son death from television.
But if that's the reason I find it quite unexpected and tbh I think it's too early for WA to become King. I'm sure he's ready...but the girls are so young and they certainly still need their parents with them, not a King and a Queen.
On the other hand I think Queen Beatrix went through a lot in the past year, and I'm sure she made the best decision for her family and her country.
So, if we are talking about an abdication, I'm looking forward to see King Willem Alexander and Queen Maxima!!!

The Dutch do not have coronations. They have a formal installation of the new monarch, but that is a civil ceremony. The regalia is present but the monarch is never crowned.

So is that at 6pm in the Uk?

While I can understand her reasons for wanting to abdicate if it is an abdication there is something very sad about that.

Ah! Thanks much for correcting me on this.

It will still be interesting and historic.

What time on the east coast of the U.S.? I do have a feeling it's about an abdication and not Friso -- that's a personal issue and I can't believe she would speak publicly about so personal and tragic a subject.

I had hoped that she would serve until death. I'm not a big fan of the retirement thing for monarchs.

I have some problems with reaching the nos.nl-site. At my browser there is always an "Error"-Site. I am driving crazy.

Are foreign royals attending this installation, is this going to be a big royal event or not?

Checking NOS, sources close to the Royal Court comfirm it's an abdication. Queen Juliana abdicated on this date in 1980.

I too think it must be an abdication though it'll be sad to see Beatrix step down, she seemed like quite a wonderful and beloved regent. I don't think I would be able to process it if QMII decided to abdicate, but then again that might be because it isn't a tradition here in Denmark, might make it a bit easier in the Netherlands. It'll be exciting to see in forty minutes if it really is an abdication.

On God no, I'm feeling very unsettled about this - whether it relates to Friso or abdiction, I'm not ready for this kind of news.

It my happen that the server is exploding already.

N-TV Germany, a very serious news TV (CNN) is already announcing the abdiction news - and I think, if the PM is scheduled speaking afterwards, I think, that´s it....

On the Nos.nl livestream, its stating its about the expected abdication. Although I can't read Dutch which is what the livestream is, the actual webpage is translated into English which helps me out a lot.

I'm willing to be it is news of abdication now.
