The faster she moves the quicker any renovations at Huis Ten Bosch can be done and the King and his family can settle into their new home. I thought all the moves would have been completed by the end of the summer.
What a little gem this house is! Are the outbuildings residential as well as functional (farm, horse, etc. related?)

Yes it was,perhaps the renovations were just cosmetic and not large scale,is there any information on the costs yet?

How far is Drakensteyn from huis ten bosch? I hope it is not too far as Beatrix seems to have a really good relationship with her grandchildren, especially W-A and Maxima's girls so I can't imagine she'd wantto be too far away from them.
Will Beatrix have anywhere to stay in The Hague or will this be the only residence she has.

There will be an appartment available in "Huis ten Bosch" for Princess Beatrix, for when she is for work in The Hague and of course when she is visiting here grandchildren.

It's absolutely adorable; like something out of a story book. I wouldn't mind living there myself.

Dutch News.nl stated that Princess Beatrix moved into her new home on Tuesday (February 4th, 2014). Princess Beatrix "has moved into the refurbished Drakensteyn castle estate in Lage Vuursche".
