I kinda wonder if any more info will surface about this. I also kind of wonder if there will be any kind of memorial service or something or maybe that's wrong of me to think, maybe that would be more of a private event. I'm still shocked about all this. I went to tell my friends about this and they had already heard about it and they don't follow royalty so you can tell this was obviously big, even in North America.

A service of remembrance has already been set for tomorrow at Grote Kerk, Apeldoorn. The Queen is expected to attend, and I would assume the other royals too. Maybe our Dutch members will know more.

I read MSN news and it said that man planned to kill royal family but he missed. Instead he killed 5 innocent people. He is a murderer.
The day that started so nicely turned a nightmare.
Dutch people will never forget this day.

it will definitely change the manner the future Queen's days are held, less spontaneous and more security. This will be discussed in the coming months after Holland has recovered from the shock and have been given time to grieve.

Come to think of it all the Royals together (except the very young) is a dangerous situation and difficult to guard. The attack was not only on the Queen but on all of them. They are in a way like a company, who do not allow all the Partners to get on a plane together (when they have their annual fun gettogether with their wives).

My sympathies for the people of the Netherlands and in particular the victim's families.

i can't stop thinking that if the needle wouldn't have been there, the car would have probably hit the bus of the royals. i'm not saying that the people who were killed were less important or anything but what a drama would it have been if the queen or any of the members of the family died.

i hope the netherlands is starting to recover. it's quite a problem that the driver died because now it will be more complicated to get more information.

At the Grote Kerk,Apeldoorn.It is just confirmed it will be tonight.HM will be in attendance apparently.


What is happening right now is that all the flowers,over 400 bouquets in Orange,Red White and Blue that
were supposed to adorn the steps of Het Loo Palace yesterday,are now being laid at the place of yesterdays tragedy.Moving,very moving.

Thank you, lucien.

This might be a stupid question...
I saw pictures of big Koniginnedag parties all over the Netherlands.. especially in Amsterdam... showing many young people partying. Were the parties directly over when the News reached them?
Sorry if this is a stupid question.

It is not fair that the driver is dead. This sentence is too soft. He should be alive now and explain why he had done this terrible. He should explain the families of the victims why the dead are dead and why the injured are injured. And he should go to prison for the rest of his life.

Dear Netherlands, I wish you the power to cope with and that this will never happen. Please don't give up.

No this is not a stupid question at all.

The parties went on,even tho many knew what had happened.
The Mayor decided not to cancel all festivities,only the official ones,all
others continued as it would have caused a major disruption of public safety
since there were over 1 million people out and about in the city.Where to go with them?

You and I would have gone home,I'm sure,but there were many saying yeah well,sorry for Apeldoorn but we here party.

Some are just very selfcentered,by not wishing to use another word for it if you catch my drift.
But then also,none had seen the images as it happened like we/I have seen as it happened.
They just thought a car crash,so what.

this whole sad story is so much out of place for the dutch and their usual attitude ... if i had heard that something like this had happened and i had to guess where i would never ever had thought of the dutch and their royals. the famous laid-back or tolerant attitude, people looking at queen's day not only from a royal perspective but also to have a really good time has received a serious knock that will have an influence on what is to come in the future, and certainly for the worse. somehow unconcern or carefreeness has been taken away, again, after the killing of theo van gogh, but this time it is in realtion to royalty and, even worse, uninvolved bystanders are affected.

too bad the guy died, lucky and undeserved escape for him, he deserved to be confronted with his actions and face responsibility.

i feel for the dutch, very sad.

No not all the parties were directly over. Most of the official festivities were cancelled but Amsterdam decided not to cancel the big festivals because of safety reasons.

What a dreadful day. So many innocent people killed and injured and the Royal family in danger. This is not the Holland I knew and loved, used to live in Nijmegen, and my prayers go out to the families at this sad time.
