I really don´t know how should I feel.
But, hey, better a new king for an abdication than one for death

Ireally like Beatrix, but after Friso accident I guess she was wishing for calm and a paceful retirement. I like W-A and Maxima too, I guess she doesn´t have to worry in that sense, they will make a good king and queen.

WA and Maxima accompany Beatrice on so many overseas trips. I've always wondered why, but perhaps it's part of the "training?"

"Bitter sweet" is an excellent way to describe this ( if the prediction is correct). I hope that Willem/Maxima feel ready to take on this. But as previous posts have informed, it is a tradition, so I guess it is something they have known was likely to happen.

If this is abdication then definite mixed feelings - being from a country where the monarch is one for life i find the idea of abdicating strange. Beatrix to me seems such a great Queen and popular.

But im sure Willem and Maxima will be great monarchs as well - it will take time to get used to them by King and Queen when are the counterparts remain heirs. Hard to see them all having to bow or curtsey to WA and Maxima from now on.

Also think about Amaila being Princess of Orange then at such a young age and not at a stage to fulfil the duties required. There will be a gap in the house of Orange.

WA's will be a long reign and a long while before Amaila begins duties. It seems a shame that he teenage years she will be even more in spotlight as the heir

Really is this true? I thought his daughters were the next in line.

It is sad if she abdicates, but she has done a wonderful job for close to 33 years as a Queen and everything she did before those years.

(Of course if they have made a desiscion about Friso or so it might also be a nice way to announce it like this. But I think this is not about him. At least I hope not.)

It is kind of sad because I kind of grew up with her as the Queen, but Willem-Alexander and Maxima will make a wonderful King and Queen of the Netherlands.

The triple A is still next in line,Emmily, however being in a dynast means belonging to the Dutch Royal House.

That's not got anything to do with his daughters, Margriets two sons will cease to be in line for the throne. All has to do with proximity of blood to The Monarch.

I would be pretty sure that the Queen has spoken to them both or at least her son. Im also sure the Queen wouldn't be doing it if she wasn't confident enough in them.

Well, Amalia will become Princess of Orange, then her sisters are coming as nos 2 and 3. Then Constantin, following by his children. And then...... the children of Beatrix sisters. So quite a long line to the throne.

I know, this is very exciting and yet it will be sad to see Beatrix step down.

When WA becomes King, Maurits and Bernhard will have no succession rights.

Correct me if I am wrong but, if she abdicates, Willem-Alexander will be King Willem VI and Catharina-Amalia will be the Princess of Orange (first female with this title in her own right).

And CP Frederik was an heir at the age of 3 years.
