June 25 2005 The Queen unveiled a bust of her late husband Prince Claus today in the city of his birth - Hitzacker, Germany. Prince Willem-Alexander accompanied her (although I couldn't find a picture of him).

(Yesterday's event where she presented awards that had until this year always been given out by her father, and now today's engagement, must be in some ways, sad reminders of all the important people she has lost in the last few years. It is a good thing she has some cheerful things to focus on this year - her jubilee celebrations and the impending birth of another grandchild!)

... and a few more pictures from today's visit to Germany. After unveiling the bust of Prince Claus, the Queen and her son visited an exhibit on the Prince.

Thanks for the pictures Squidy! :)

I agree that it must be very hard for Beatrix on a daily basis, but at particular engagements and dedications in particular, to be reminded of the loss of her parents and her husband. I often think how this year in particular, with it being her jubilee year, for her parents and her husband who have been so much a part of her role as Queen, to have missed out on this milestone in Beatrix's life.

But thank goodness for her constantly growing family -- this year alone two new grandchildren, and obviously the closeness of her sons and daughter-in-laws, and her sisters.

A few more pictures, including women whom I think must be the late Prince Claus' sisters or relations of his.
