I was just wondering if the situation of Prince Friso was the only thing that made her so emotional.
She almost never lets her guard down like that.
I must think that the situation with her son is far more emotional than abdication. He is, technically dead, as he lives on life support and she has not been given a chance to have any closure. Anything like this would, certainly, stir great emotions.

Like Hendrik-Jan, it indeed felt almost as if the Queen was waving goodbye to her reign. But indeed, that is speculation and I am sure she has other things on her mind right now than preparing for all that.

The entire concert, HM is waving goodbye after 1h 29m:


Very nice that president Gauck and his partner attended the concert too. He seems sympathetic and had quite a royal week(s), meeting the Swedish & Luxembourg reigning couple, as well as queen Beatrix (twice!).
No,HM didn't wave her farewell...what people read and see...loveble,yes,but this Lady isn't moving any time soon.

Some more lovely pics of may 5th:
