Thanks for the pics HMQueenElizabethII:)

On Aug. 4, the Queen is visiting the province of Fryslân. It looks like this might be part of her Jubilee Tour, but other than that, at least according to the Palace site, there doesn't appear to be much in the near future. I guess things are slowing down for the summer. I imagine that she would appreciate a bit of chance to relax & enjoy the nice weather.

Does anyone know if she will be going to Porte Ercole, Italy for a holiday? Awhile back, I heard a rumour that their summer home was up for sale, but haven't heard anything since.

July 1 2005 Queen Beatrix and Princess Irene attended the opening of an art nature exhibit in Amsterdam. (I think that the Queen was scheduled to attend this event alone, but her sister, who is known for her love of nature, decided to join her.)

from the website of christies

"Happy Elephant

Argentiono, Italy


Caressed by sea and sun and awaiting the creative touch of a new owner, this fabulous property, which once belonged to H. R. H. Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, occupies a beautiful private gated 4.2-hectare estate on the idyllic Monte Argentario peninsula in southern Tuscany. Breathtaking panoramic views of the Mediterranean unfold here, in one of the world’s most captivating settings. Simply put, a property of this magnitude and grandeur is rarely available, and it is an opportunity not to be missed. The estate comprises a main building, a guard’s building, a 345-square-meter guest house, and a swimming pool. The charming U-shaped main villa is awash in sunlight and showcases lovely views from a majority of its rooms. This versatile estate, which could serve any number of uses, features roughly 610 square meters of space. Mature gardens, olive trees, and wild Mediterranean vegetation add to the sense of privacy that pervades the entire property. One would be hard-pressed to discover a more beautiful setting than Monte Argentario, yet this tranquil haven is conveniently located close to Rome and the wealth of cultural and leisure pursuits for which the Maremma region and Tuscany are renowned. Price upon request "


(According to the dutch newspaper de telegraaf the price is 10 million dollars)

Thanks for the pictures The Watcher! Beatrix looks "cool" as always, but it must be very hot down there at this time of year. I'm sure she would much rather have visited in January or February as a nice little winter break.

The skirt in this floral ensemble is too frilly. It reminds me of the early 90s.

For once I like the hat, but the frilly outfit is a negative. She should wear something more structured and with better lines for her body type. The nice skirt/jacket combos she wears look very professional and sleek - QB should just stick with those.

... another picture from the tour of Curacao. (I think it was taken yesterday.)

Does anyone know how long this tour will last? Is the Queen back in the Netherlands yet?

Sorry for going back in time, but this is too funny ...

I was looking for pictures on Beatrix's trip last week to Curacao and my search query on ANP brought up these pictures. I had heard of the incident, but never seen pictures.

I guess the story is that on a previous visit to Curacao (1999?), the Queen was standing close to the water's edge during a storm, when she was hit by a rogue wave. She of course got a soaking! I heard she was a good sport about the whole incident and carried on as normal. It is funny to see her without her usual puffy do!
