Oh, Queen looks amazing at all photos!
I should admit Queen Beatrix always films very well!

I'm not usually on this part of the forums, but as an ardent fan of Andre Rieu and his Orchestra I thought you might like to see the concert he performed for HM Queen Beatrix this week:

André to play for Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands

There is a 30 minute video posted at that link

Enjoy!!

PS - Monday 29 March - today we were lucky enough to get tickets to see Andre & JSO in Birmingham (UK) in September)

After the 'mini concert' Her Majesty told André Rieu that it was 'geweldig leuk' (very nice/fun) and that it lasted far too shortly. To which André replied that he could go on a while longer. HM left though. The location (one of the many limestone quarries) looked very nice, though André Rieu commented several times that it must have been the smallest location where he and his orchestra ever performed. Rieu seemed very proud to finally perform for HM, he kept repeating that on television and in various programmes he was interviewed by.

HM sang along with the provincial anthem of Limbourg, although she and the other officials did not rise like the rest of the audience. That is only reserved for the national anthem. Rieu is a very nice man IMO, very suitable to present these kind of festivities. Always an innocent joke, a an anecdote to share etc. Next month he will be performing in South Africa. The first time on the African continent probably.

Have fun,you'll love it,the whole atmosphere is just wonderfull!!

Marengo I agree,André Rieu is a nice guy,flamboyant and funny,and a great entertainer.
Also,he is the 6th best selling artist worldwide.I think that is an indication on how darn
good he and his orchestra come across to the global audience.

HM will unveil a work of art today at the Grote Kerk,Schiedam.

By unveiling this work HM concludes a period of extensive renovations on the building and a sign to the new
and broader use of it in the future.

The work of art consists of a large bowl with bits and pieces of stone arising from it transforming into a lamb at the top.

The "bits and pieces" come from remnants of medieval altars found under the church during the renovation works.
There has been an extensive study into these bits and pieces,and the first copy of the conclusions will be handed over to HM today.

A pity prof. Pieter isn't joining his sister-in-law here, as he was raised in Schiedam.

It really is a fabulous exhibit of the,ao,trains of ArchDuke Franz Ferdinand,Sissi,the train of Queen Adelaide of GB dating from 1842,Queen Maria Pia of Portugal's entire train is there,a gift from her father King Vittorio Emmanuele II.And the dutch Royal train of HM Queen Juliana and Prince Bernhard,the most sober of all trains.

HM drove from The Hague to Utrecht in her own train after first having a look in
the newly restored Royal Waitingroom at The Hague Holland Spoor trainstation.

The exhibition will last untill september 15th.
