I typed the message to Susanalicia twice as it disapeared somehow, I double checked if I posted it but it did not appear, so hence the double posting, my apologies.


To squidgy:

I think the speculations about abdication are only good for the number of gossip magazines which are sold, but nothing more. Most dutch would like to see Beatrix on the throne for a long time, I do not think she will abdicate within 5 years anyway, WA and Maxima are starting a family and Maxima (and WA) could do with a better preparation anyway. I think the queen is personally seeing this, and that is the reason why she sometimes for example takes them with her on statevisits, which is quite exceptional.

I think it is safe to assume that the majority of the english never did anything of the sort.

To susanalicia:
I wondered about those trees as well, the canals look so mpty without them! A few trees on Dam square would liven the thing up a bit, it is such a grey and ugly qquare now.

Talking about Dam square (and back to the silver jubilee), I know that for the 40th anniversairy of Queen Wilhelmina's reign there was a thanksgiving service in the New Church, I have seen some pictures in books of Wilhelmina, Juliana and Benrhard walking from Dam palace to the New Church. Was there any thanksgivingservice for Juliana's silver jubilee, or for Wilhelmina's golden jubilee? Are any planned now (probably not)? In Britain it is a tradition to do this, I still remember the grand procession of Queen Elizabeth II in the golden state carriage for her golden jubilee.

Gosh, yes - I think we all remember those images of the Queen Elizabeth in her golden carriage - that event made for some magnificent pictures. I haven't read anything to suggest that there will be a Thanksgiving service for Beatrix. What a shame! A more solemn, focused event like that would have provided a nice balance to the more fun & light-hearted events we have seen so far. But I guess that is the Dutch way - more informal & relaxed.

Yes, I agree BeatrixFan. I should not have been so quick to compare Elizabeth with Beatrix. As you say, they came to the throne in two different eras. Elizabeth was the perfect monarch for the 1950s & 1960s. I guess she had been "trained" so well, that by the time she realized times were changing and people expected different things from her, it was very difficult for her to make the necessary changes.
