Exactly 19 years to the day today since a El-Al Boeing 747-200 crashed in the southern neighbourhood of Bijlmermeer in Amsterdam and killes 43 people,including to pilots and a "passenger" on board..

October 4th 1992 - oct 4th 2011.

HM visited the crash-site the next day and was in shock:

To this day we still do not know the exact ins- and outs of this disaster,and what was on board of the aircraft,all we do know is that El-Al Israel Airlines doesn't,and didn't,play by the rules applying to all.All but them...ofcourse.

On the murals she unveiled,not one pic of them,only HM and the flower arrangements.Ofcourse that's nice,but not the subject of the event,no murals in sight.They date from the early 16th century,and they have been painstakingly restored the past 7 years and should look baffling.

It is this sort of attention HM dislikes,when they photograph her more then what it really is all about and the work people have had to accomplish that.She feels that is not so fair.But that is what photo-journalists do,picture HM first and foremost.In this case it wouldn't have hurt if they would have directed their lenses up to the baffling ceiling too.

I've often felt that way when looking at pics of events attended by members of
royal families - too often the actual event gets pushed into the background as to
the photographers focussing on the attendees only. But of course those pics are
easier to sell to all the special magazines


Here's an additional ppe gallery!

Toda the twitter and online media spread the news that Beatrix had a stroke. It was started by 'Shownieuws' of SBS6. Apparently somebody made the mistake of typing these words in the twitter account instead of the google search one.

Anyway, the queen is doing fine:

Met koningin Beatrix gaat alles goed, ondanks Twitter :: nrc.nl

HE President Amadou Tomani of Mali will be on a official visit from november 28th till december 1st.

Official visit,not a State Visit,hence my post here instead of starting a thread on it.

Tomorrow,November 4th,marks a "jubilee" for HM Queen Beatrix as she will then be the oldest Reigning Monarch in the history of The Netherlands.
Queen Beatrix was born on january 31st 1938 at Soestdijk Palace.

HM will be 73 years and 277 days,the age at which the former oldest Monarch passed away,King Willem III who died on november 23rd in 1890 at Het Loo Palace.
