Well, today there is a new political situation. Hero Brinkman left the PVV party and with that the government coalition lost its -shaky- majority. They will need to fall back on the orthodox christian party for support, which means that that party can demand things in return. And the party is against any change in the role of the monarch. It will be interesting to see how things will develop, new elections hopefully (though not likely).

I know nothing of situation in the Netherlands. I'm guessing the queen gets to keep her powers because no one can come to an agreement.

Diamond Queens

On matters of constitutional right and political principle, it would appear that Queen Beatrix, like Queen Elizabeth, is the better of any man....
