I've moved the pics I posted earlier of Queen Beatrix at the commemoration ceremony for Canadian vets to the Queen Beatrix thread since i was unable to get pictures of other Dutch royal family members at the event. Her sister, the one who was born in Canada was also there, Princess Margriet i believe.

Public opinion was so disapproving of them putting petty politics ahead of the need to honour Canada's vets that the PM's office called the other leaders today and asked them to join him.
~*~Humera~*~ you've caught me! I haven't had a chance to watch more than the morning news to catch the weather before leaving the house. But thanks for filling me in on why Adrienne Clarkson is in the Netherlands. And I'm glad to hear that Paul Martin, Stephen Harper and Jack Layton have coome to their senses and will take part in VE celebrations.

On the same piece about the Dutch vertrans being angry that none of the party leaders were going to come to the Netherlands to mark the occasion, the news reporter also added (and quite rightly, too) that as the vetrans were getting older and dying, it would be one of the last chances to speak to vetrans who had been part of the war and hear first hand accounts.

Video of Gala yesterday. There is only a video of Queen Beatrix, Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima arriving. There were no cameras allowed in the palace. The video shows the arriving of Q. Beatrix not yet dressed in Gala, and Willem-Alexander (also not yet dressed in Gala tenue). But also the arriving of Máxima and she was already wearing a gala dress.

For video:

-go to http://www.telegraaf.nl
- scroll down and click on 'Diplomaten prikken een vorkje met Beatrix' (the little picture of Beatrix)

June 25 2005 The Queen unveiled a bust of her late husband Prince Claus today in the city of his birth - Hitzacker, Germany. Prince Willem-Alexander accompanied her (although I couldn't find a picture of him).

(Yesterday's event where she presented awards that had until this year always been given out by her father, and now today's engagement, must be in some ways, sad reminders of all the important people she has lost in the last few years. It is a good thing she has some cheerful things to focus on this year - her jubilee celebrations and the impending birth of another grandchild!)

Thanks for the pictures Squidy! :)

I agree that it must be very hard for Beatrix on a daily basis, but at particular engagements and dedications in particular, to be reminded of the loss of her parents and her husband. I often think how this year in particular, with it being her jubilee year, for her parents and her husband who have been so much a part of her role as Queen, to have missed out on this milestone in Beatrix's life.

But thank goodness for her constantly growing family -- this year alone two new grandchildren, and obviously the closeness of her sons and daughter-in-laws, and her sisters.

A few more pictures, including women whom I think must be the late Prince Claus' sisters or relations of his.

Just like the Russian statevisit planned in 2004, the statevisit of Jordan end this month is most likely to be canceled.
Just saw on the news that there were three bombings, target were three hotels, popular by westerners.
I don't know for sure if King Abdullah and Queen Rania proceed their visit, but it would be weird.

The Queen, the Crownprince and Princess Maxima send a wreath to the funeral of former dutch industrial Frits Philips, who was burried yesterday in his beloved Eindhoven. 1000's op people were lined up in the streets to pay their respects to 'meneer Frits', whose coffin drove through the city on a hearse.

picture from the regioportal of 'krantenonline'.



The monograms are so ugly and unelegant IMO, I wish Queen Margrethe would give them new ones for christmas.

are there any photos of this yet? I hope the royal family bundled up! I was at the Dom around this time last year and it was FREEZING! I was wearing a thick long coat, scarf and gloves but I still shivered the entire service.
