Go to the website mentioned below, and click on 'De complete toespraak van koningin Beatrix', it will open a new window (buffer for a while, depending on your connection speed)..:)

I don´t think it is planned for this year nor next year, I heard the queen doesn´t want to go to a foreign country next year, in her jubilee year. So that will be in 2006 i think

Beatrix Wilhelmina Armgard. Wilhelmina is of course after her grandmother. Incidentally, Queen Juliana had Wilhelmina as one of her middle names as well. Armgard. Her father´s mother was Baroness Armgard von Sierstorpff-Cramm.

Queen Beatrix News Thread, Part 2 (Oct 2004-Aug 2005)

October 30, 2004, Queen Beatrix welcomes Polish President Aleksander Kwasniewski, in Netherlands for a two day visit. The President will be attending the 60th anniversery of the liberation of the Dutch city of Breda by Polish soldiers.

I must say that particular color looks really good on Beatrix, it brightens her up...

AFter her abdication she was styled as Princess Juliana (it was her own wish, she said that she should not want to stay queen for a little).After her death the court issued a statement that Juliana will henceforth be referred to as 'Queen Juliana' again.

PS Beatrix means 'she who maks happy' .. that is qhy Juliana chose this name (as she did with Irene = 'she who makes happy' and Margriet (daisy = symbol of the dutch resistance during WWII)
