Great to see Queen Bea back again! I hope her recovery has gone well and that she will be at good health and won't have anymore problems. A nice gesture to meet the Dutch medalists, Bea looked to be in a very joyous mood!

I missed her too Maxie! But it's been worth the wait. She looks very relaxed and happy! Did anyone see this on TV? Is the Queen able to walk fairly well? I hope the recovery is going well.

Yes, I saw it on tv. I actually don't know how well she walks at this moment. She met with the athletes behind closed doors and all they showed was how pictures were taken of the assembly in Paleis Huis ten Bosch and on the stairs in front of it.

Ireen Wust (the nations favourite girl these days) commented that the Queen was absolutely lovely and funny. And she seemed very down-to-earth and talkative.

The Queen seems to hold on to two ice skaters on one of these pictures, so I assume walking still causes some difficulties (or maybe it is the stairs, as the knee has to make a different angle there).

Thanks Maxie. I just watched the video that someone else posted a link to, and she seems to be walking fairly good - at least on flat surfaces. As Marengo says, the stairs may be a bit more difficult. At least she's got all of those strong Olympians to help her out!

What a "high" these althletes must be on right now. First to win an Olympic medal, and then to have a meeting with their Queen! Makes me want to go down to the rink & start practising my skating!

Well, 'your' Cindy Classen was the Belle of the ball inTurin I think, she won 4 or 5 medals, quite exceptional!

According to gold-medalist Bob de Jong the queen told him she was seated on the tip of her chair (is that a correct way of saying that she just sat on the front side of it), because she was so excited and that she said she followed all the rides!

The athletes are mostly tired (according to themselves), but very happy as they received a warm welcome in The Hague, and a few days ago in Zwolle where a square filled with people were cheering them. They have to start in Calgary again in a few days btw.

Finally the Luxembourgians are coming!!! From the Benelux Royals MB, posted by journalist H. Jacobs:

The Grand-Duke and Grand-Duches of Luxembourg are expected for a state visit to the Netherlands between April 24-26, 2006. The official announcement will be made next week, but the visit has been confirmed by both sides; the GPD papers carried a short article today.

STAATSBEZOEK LUXEMBURG
DEN HAAG (GPD) _ Groothertog Henri van Luxemburg en zijn echtgenote Maria
Teresa brengen van 24 tot en met 26 april een staatsbezoek aan Nederland. Dat
heeft het groothertogelijk paleis gisteren bevestigd.
Henri nam in oktober 2000 het werk over van zijn vader groothertog Jean, die
zoals ook in het Nederlandse koningshuis gebruikelijk is, met pensioen ging.
Henri heeft al een aantal buurlanden bezocht, maar Nederland kwam nog niet aan
de beurt.
Het eerste staatsbezoek dat koningin Beatrix na haar aantreden in 1980 bracht,
was aan Luxemburg, waar een andere tak van het stamhuis Nassau regeert.
De koningin was ook eregast bij de inhuldiging van groothertog Henri. Henri's
vader Jean kwam in 1991 voor het laatst op staatsbezoek. Het programma van het
staatsbezoek wordt volgende week bekendgemaakt.

I hope so as well. I believe Willem-Alexander always had a good relationship with Henri and Marie-Therese, and as South Americans, I think marie-Therese and Maxima will have some things in common as well. I aalso expect margriet and Pieter to be present. Sadly Laurentien and Constantijn never participate in these things, but maybe for the Luxembourg royals they will come over (I expect them to attend a dinner of theatre performance in Brussels as well, when the Queen pays a state visit to Belgium).
