Her Majesty looked to be both very happy and then sad in some of those PPE photo's.

The Volkskrant published some information about the book "Beatrix, dwars door alle weerstand heen".

The book claims that HM was furious about the interview her father gave to the Volkskrant (which was published after his death). She called it high treason and wondered "which man did we burry?". About the journalist she is supposed to have said: he abused his friendship for journalistic purposes.

The author (Jutta Chorus) seems to have some good sources for this book. Among them Pim Waldeck, former grandmaster of the court.

It was...a bit sad really,but OK,we'll get used to it eventually.

At present Pim Waldeck is HM Ambassador to the Court of St.James.

And,a most beautifull album of pictures of HM Queen Beatrix,gathered by Hans Jacobs of Royalblog and many Dutch photographers

I wonder if there were larger crowds than normal to greet the Queen at the Grote church given that this was final public act prior to her Abdication next week.

Oh but thousands of people gathered outside the church yes,certainly more then otherwise would be the case,especially as The Hague is used to Royal appearances throughout the year,this last one was special.
