Official Visit to the Dutch Caribbean; October 28-November 6, 2011



HM Queen Beatrix accompanied by TRH The Prince of Orange and Princess Máxima will visit the Caribbean islands of the Kingdom from friday october 28th till sunday november 6th.

After the new Statute the islands of Curacao and St.Maarten became autonomous last year october while the islands of Bonaire,Saba and St.Eustatius became Dutch Municipalities by referendum.The island of Aruba already enjoyed its Status Aparte for several years now.

No doubt it will be an enormously warm visit,not only due to the climate but due to the fact the House of Orange is immensily popular,loved & respected in the Caribbean part of the Kingdom too.

It will be the first time HM and TRH visit the Islands together.
A visit to look forward to.

Mostly in a top hotel,like fe when Members of the RF are on Curacao,they used to prefer the Avila Beach hotel,or better its annex,for decades.
