What channel will you guys choose to see online the morning coverage? I know some of the online sites that will stream live, but perhaps you guys know which one is the best to follow.

I ask me, how the day for Beatrix, Willem-Alexander and Maxima had started. When did they woke up, when did they breakfast and when did the hairdresser and stylist came! And where did they sleep? In Palace?

I wish them a great day!

Could the MODS please open the Abdication & Inauguration Information thread?I believe that is today.Thank you.

The Dutch Government Ministers,the Chairs of the Second Chamber and the Senate,the Ministers Plenipotentiary of Curacao,Aruba and St.Maarten,the Governors have arrived at the Royal Palace ahead of the ceremony of the Signing of the Act of Abdication in 48 minutes.

So far so good,its all Orange here at the Dam Square right now:

Isn't it nice of Madame Tussaud's to put the figures of Wilhelmina and Julianne to watch over the ceremony?
