Apparently the visit was kept a secret. Even the press didn't have a clue and in the end Janine van den Ende had to make some pictures herself! In over-all I would say it is well deserved indeed.

To susan alicia: I think they are diamond starts, don' t know if they are from the set that Maxima used for her wedding tiara as they have around 10 stars in the collection.

As posted by Joris on the Benelux Royals MB:

Quote:
in Amsterdam Friday evening at the Royal Carré Theatre Queen Beatrix attended the premiere of the musical theatre Ciske The Rat (story of a little Amsterdam brat). Years ago she attended the film premiere too. Both actors, "old" (who now plays his father, and who also became a musical singer) and young Ciske, of course, were there too. And the Queen wanted to pose in between them. It was a moving event, the Queen wiped off a tear or two... because this classic song keeps being very moving. In a true Amsterdam/Jordanese Accent (our own Cockney accent). H.M. obviously forgave them using bad language ("krijg toch allemaal de klere".../you guys you all go to hell... is a neat translation)

Talking to Danny de Munk

I love the golden dress that Beatrix is wearing. Apparently this was the first musical premiere the Queen ever attended. Note that the Queen awarded the producer, Joop van den Ende a high and rare decoration only two weeks ago. The Queen was accompanied by at least two ladies in waiting. In the newspaper I saw Mienthe Boelaard and Martine van Loon-Labouchere. HM was seated between Joop van den Ende and the mayor of Amsterdam, Job Cohen.

In 1984 HM attended the premiere of the original, the book ´Ciske de Rat´:

Ha, ha Danny de munk, the actor that puts his head close to hers makes the picture gezellig, as the dutch say.

It is so nice to see Beatrix out and about and doing things that she must have some pleasure in. Between this visit which was not really all that publicized and the visit to the museum it does not look like she is slowing down at all.

What do you all think about that psychic who claimed that Beatrix would abdicate on 13 October? What a bunch on nonsense I think! Obviously that did not happen, but it does open up the discussion about what we all think regarding when she might do that. I hope that she does not do it any time in the near future! She still has much to offer, and W-A and Maxima could definitely enjoy the time with their children.

It doesn't open any discussion at all.I read it,the man was a freek,discharged from the asylum to early,so,no way,imnsho,to start a moot and boring discussion on any abdication,(there already is an "abdication thread" btw)maybe the old girl tells us all off and hopefully,remains HM for at least another 5 to10 years.Everything related to that is just speculation,and just that and darn boring too.Only HM knows,if,when and how or at all.She enjoys what she is doing too much to give up already.

I thought Q.Beatrix went deep into her thoughts while looking at some of the lovely paintings. This was very intresting, some paintings (from the picture) were either really colorful or black, grey & white's.

Is this the award that was started by King Willem III? I believe it is financed with the Queen´s private funds, isn´t it?

HM visited several communities in Hoeksche Waard (a landscape in the South of the Netherlands). She visited several organisations, a school, the Campina-company for 9!!! hours nonstop, just a rest for lunch (Starter was somthing with Scotish Salmon, main course was turbot, dessert was fruitcake, mousse au chocolate and raspberry icecream.)

http://s180.photobucket.c...w&current=6560230.jpg

Just a few things about the visit yesterday:

First a video, http://www.rtvrijnmond.nl...t%20de%20Hoeksche%20Waard (click at the link under the photo) but most of the time you see the preparing, but it is so lovely when HM arrives (after 2/3 of the video), the first thing she is trying to do (after greeting the mayor): She tries to warm the hand of the girl, who gave her the flowers. (It was a cold day yesterday). This is so cute.

- There were much more people than were expected. And Beatrix said she was very moved that so many of them waited so long in the cold.
- The 8-year-old Jacobine Mourits didn`t wait, but ran to Beatrix to give her a picture painted by her. Beatrix handed it to her Hofdame, but said to her that she want the picture back later.
- Another little girl (around 2 years) thought that it was Santa Claus coming out of the bus.
- Beatrix leaved one of her agenda points more than one our later than it was scheduled, because she also visited a hospice, because of the long and deep conversations there.

I saw a report of this on television, it was a grander visit than usual, the presentor called it a sort of Queensday but in November. HM also visited a hospice, where people who are dying can go to if nobody can look after them at home. She stayed there 1 hour longer (!) than planned.
