By 0.01 am do they mean 1 am? Why would they send or give the suprise at that time if indeed it is Dutch time? Anyhow here in the US east coast it will arrive around 8-9 pm. Which is great!!!

I can't think of anything else the surprise might be besides pictures? Although when they say "arrive" it makes it sound like it will be something big, like a new house or a new car or something like that, but I doubt that's what it is. And if it is pictures, 1 am is an odd time to be releasing them.

If they release pictures 00:01 AM, it is possible for the newspapers to publish the pictures in the morning.

But probably the media already knows what the "message" and "surprise" is, but are not allowed to release it before wednesday.

ps. arrive was not a word www.royalblog.nl used, release is perhaps a better translation.

They don't mean 1 am, I'm not sure how to explain it so I'll just do it like this: it's 59 minutes before 1 am.

Well, they sure have me intrigued. Are we sure this source is reliable? Or is it also been said by the official side of the royal house? I sure can't wait. I hope it's a nice photoshoot of the girls. But why at this hour?

I;m considering staying up for it, bacause I'm just way too curious to wait until tommorrow morning to find out. Thanks all for the warning about it. I just hope it isn't a very late 1st of April joke or something

That depends on in which part of the US you are. But it can be 6, 7, 8 or nine hours of difference (counting from Amsterdam, Paris and Madrid, not Greenwich) , so that would be 6pm, 5pm, 4pm or 3pm. (I hope I'm saying it right and not confusing everyone in the US )

My guess: the two daughters together with baby Ariane in a spoken video message to say 'thank you so much' for all the well-wishes for papa's 40th birthday and the birth of Princess Ariane.

I agree to dazzling. The re-entreé of Máxima, thank - you - messages and baptism date. Amalia doing the talking (now that she is 4, she might now speak more clearly), could also be.

Another options we definitely should not be considering:

- Beatrix's abdication ... no way

- A new pregnancy... highly improbable

That's nice! That cradle she's sleeping in sure is huge. Is this an older picture? It's good to see them again, but I wish we could see Ariane a little bit better. W-A and Maxima look very good and so happy!
