Love Maxima's look today from head to toe! Just stunning.

Laurentien for once ... looks good.

What's the story with Aimee's outfit and shoes? Not good ...

He started out from the beginning,so say since 1981 I believe,all three started at a young age....but the girls are too small yet to walk these ends....a few more years when they're about 12 or so.

NOS Nieuws - Beatrix: helemaal onder de indruk
You can see when Queen Beatrix speak and the end that family is not completed, tears in W-A, Beatrix and Maxima's eyes. And I love Maxima's gesture (1:13) to Queen Beatrix to the end

Her Majesty's brought tears to my eyes as well; can't imagine what the family is feeling. The look on Crown Prince Willem-Alexander's face when the Queen spoke of "incomplete" family was truly heartbreaking. And I agree, the sweet little gesture of encouragement from Maxima was really nice - it showed genuine affection and care.

A lovely day that gave a chance to see some of the lower profile royals. Her Majesty is a brave woman; I have never admired her as much as I do now.

My uncle (born and raised in Armenia) has been living in the Netherlands since 2004. Whenever he speaks of the Queen, he calls her (roughly translated from Armenian) our beloved Grandmother - and he's someone who never supported the institution of Monarchy. Queen Beatrix is truly a special woman to enjoy such genuine love and devotion of her people.

I'm sure the queen is heartened by all the messages of support and to see Friso is not forgotten.

Wonderful pictures, I especially love the ones of Maxima and the Queen.
The speech was pretty emotional for me too, it must have been hard for the Queen and the entire family to be joyous and happy on a day like this and meanwhile missing a beloved one. It was very beautifully said by the wonderful Queen, how can one not admire her and her strength.

You could see the heartbreak in both Willem-Alexander and Constantijn's eyes ...

HM is very, very strong!

queen's day has always been a proper celebration. we are used to seeing all the family, every year, together and having fun with the people they meet and engaging actively in the celebration. even the queen's "nieces in law" attend the event! that has to mean something: it's a family event, and everyone very much enjoys participating.

seeing friso and mabel not being there, i bet this is a sad day for the family, even more so than any other days since the accident happened.

one phenomenal queen indeed. my heart goes out today, specially to her.

Though HM never seems comfortable, and sometimes even shy, in these 'spontanious' speeches at Queensday. This time it did seem very difficult for her, esp. the part of her absent relatives. Her voice seemed to change and indeed, her son and d-i-l became emotional too. It musn't have been an easy speech.

Now on the down side... I saw the first 5 minutes of the broadcast in the train to Antwerp yesterday. These hysterical children in Rhenen were beyond bad and it aseemed that they have been eating sugar non-stop for the last 3 weeks. I know you are supposed to like anything that children do or say, but would it have been so bad if they at least practiced ...once? They were shouting the song (krijsen) and they seemed to jump around in all different directions. I can't see what is wrong in getting a childrens choir that can actually sing (in Sweden they seem to do that pretty well), or not get a choir at all and just have these children do whatever games they are playing in the village.

And although the family is a good sport, some of these games are beyond silly. Silly in way that it is not comical anymore. Throwing toilet pots... really? Who ever came up with that idea and decided that is was a good idea to let the RF join in... sigh.
