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

[edit]
sweet NOS Nieuws - Van Vollenhoven: jammer, ja

interesting and funny pic http://cdn.monarchypress.com/1/14553...a214645181.jpg

and may some tell what exactly they're speak about, I know it about Prince Friso but don't understand everything RTL XL

DPP gallery Queensday 2012 - Dutch Photo Press
Thanks for posting the NOS video. Briefly, the Queen thanked the people of Rhenen and Veenendaal for providing an unforgettable queen's day that was very touching and heartwarming. With her voice catching a bit, and this is where the Crown Prince and Princess also teared up, the Queen said it is a pity and sad that our family is not complete today, but we will pass on your warm wishes and thoughts that have touched us all today very much. Thank you again for an unforgettable day.

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.
LOL! True Marengo....Who on earth thinks of something like pot throwing..I mean...and they claim they have it as a tradition,they do it every year...."a bit" of a toe-curling program at times yes...but,the main thing was to make HM and the Family feel how much we care for them,respect & genuinely love them,and that message came across both ways too...I shut off the noise with the kids,no,it wasn't your train to Antwerp that went wibbly wobbly...it were the darn screaming top of their lungs little devils..What one has to endure at times...

Thanks for those photos FanvanMaxima. There seem to have been quite a few different relatives this year. I notice Pricne Pieter Christiaan, the duke and duchess ogf Parma, princess Margarita and her husband Tjalling ten Cate. Any idea where the prince of Orange and his wife were? They didn't miss one thus far I think.
