Unfortunately, British Television as usual will not be showing anything live. They apparently believe that people in the so called United Kingdom are only interested in the British royal family and don't care about other royals. How wrong they are, most of us care more about foreign royalty than we do about the Windsors.

I agree with you even the Americans and other countries are interested in the events of the monarchy of some countries. The Dutch had jurisdiction of many countries before the British. The sponsors of the TV Co. are missing a lot.

I was hoping that the presence of the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall would be enough of an incentive for British TV to cover this event...but I guess they would have only reconsidered for William and Kate.

I think if you went to your local pub and took a poll you would find out how very wrong you are. Even if you brought pictures I doubt too many people could tell you who the continental royals are.

Here on this side of the pond, if it isn't the British royals, the reaction is "who?"

I think the British media have a difficult task enough managing to cover British royalty properly, let alone having a clue what happens outside the country! As a nation, the Netherlands has a national party at least once a year for Queensday/Kingsday - and it is a proper party, whilst we only have a royal wedding/jubilee every 10 years if we're lucky, so the national interest in these things and party spirit wains very quickly if it can be mustered at all! Last year was amazing with the Diamond Jubilee and Olympics, but alas, we are back to our miserable, disinterested selves LOL!

Actually, you would be surprised at how popular the Dutch royal family are in Scotland. It stems from when Queen Wilhelmina spend some time staying here during the war. She was so popular that ladies called Williamina changed the spelling of their name to Wilhelmina. A few years ago Queen Beatrix visited a housing scheme in Glasgow and more people turned out to see her than had for Queen Elizabeth the year before. I also remember being on a bus in Edinburgh and the traffic was held up for some time. People were getting annoyed at the delay especially after the driver said that it was due to a royal visit. A few minutes later there was a message came through the drivers radio and he shouted "it's the Queen of the Netherlands" at which everybody calmed down and one lady piped up "oh that's all right then, I thought it was one of that lot from London." I also found out from a historian that before the union with England there was talk of a union with the Netherlands so if history had been different Scotland and the Netherlands would have the same monarch.

Reuters live streaming begins at 3am CST. Of course, the youtube acct NOM has already started live streaming. However, it is not in English. -(

I gave the wrong info on the youtube acct to watch the inauguration for the U.S. Sorry, it is:

Try going straight to youtube because it says an error occurred. at 3am CST, Reuters will begin their live streaming. Hope it's in English.
