I don't think that the queen will speak today. Perhaps tomorrow or at the weekend.

If this was an accident, tragic. If this was an attempt to hurt Queen Beatrix, her family and innocent bystanders let's hope the vile excuse for a human being that was the driver snuffed it.

ja, I do not doubt the integrity of our mayor, there are 3 very big parties going on at the moment, but the one on the rokin, near me is small, they could chose to stop out of common decency.

TV Gelderland also mentions 4 deaths. But it has not been confirmed yet.

-
The board of the national Orange associations asked all the local Orange comitee's to stop the festivities that they have organised.

Having an heart attack and then driving for hundreds of meters straight through a crowd in the direction of the bus?Kidding!So,NO.


Meanwhile many most graphic pics have appeared,even on royalimages,pls. do not look.It is un-decent to a fault,un-human almost.
There still is something like human dignity.

I just removed the flag. I see they are doing the same at Palace het Loo. I am not sure if we can fly them half mast today.

I can't believe that this happened on a day that should be so joyful.

<Link to Graphic Images Removed By Moderator>

Don't watch this picture when you're easily shocked because it's an horrible one (No blood intended though)

I believe that this was done on purpose.
Queensday will never be the same.

This is just horrible. I couldn't believe it when I read about it. How traumatic for everyone! I am so sorry for the victims and all those who watched it... it's simple terrible.

How horrible. Especially this year when Koniginnendag should be extra celebrated special in honour of queen Juliana. Now her centennary will be forever overshadowed by this.

We are hearing here in Portugal that it has been confirmed that it was not an accident and that the Queen and the royal family were targetted.

No accident indeed, the driver has been arrested and taken to the police station, not to the hospital (so no heart attack!).

-
The Prime Minister arrived from Warschau at Rotterdam airport. He will make a statement on tv soon.
-
The NOS showed the route of the driver, over the Jachtlaan. He seems to be driving in a straight line to the royal bus. In the end the car change direction a bit, perhaps by the people he drove over he was unable to steer his car. Thank god he didn't have explosives!

---
At palace het Loo the flag is half mast, I am doing the same.
