I really was shocking surprised in the beginning as well, but now I really like this idea. You will get a new king without mourning for the former monarch. Handover is done, when the new king is "prepared", not when he needs glasses and a walking stick .
Clever solution ...

I so agree, I now really think it is a great idea, the new King still has his parent around to give advice and support, he can concentrate on ruling (although I know most don't really rule) and not be saddles with new responsibilities while trying to mourn their parent being gone. I wish the British would adopt this idea, but only after QEII makes it longer then Queen Victoria.

Queen Elizabeth II will never abdicate. Nor will Queen Margrethe II, who said that she'll stay as Queen until the day she fall from the Throne, dead.

Well, in the Netherlands and Luxembourg the tradition is already established, and I believe Belgium will follow this "trend". And, of course, Liechtenstein has the "Regency tradition".

But I can't see the other Monarchies doing it. Maybe King Juan Carlos will abdicate after all those scandals.

"Abdication" sounds very abnormal to me. I believe that being a Monarch is job for life.

I think the process of abdication is acceptable in some monarchical traditions and not in others. It all really just depends on the role and symbol of the monarch and the vows that they each take.

Abdication in the Netherlands means one thing, in Britain it means something else entirely. I think that to wish that one monarch would abdicate because another one is, or to wish that one monarch wouldn't abdicate because another one isn't is to fail to take into consideration the nature of the individual monarchies and monarchs themselves.

I doubt that we're going to see a tradition of abdication develop in nations that don't already have one, especially if the monarch makes any life vows or is particularly religious.

It's been announced Crown Princess Victoria & Prince Daniel will attend the Inauguration. I wonder who will go from the British Royal Family? The Prince of Wales & Duchess of Cornwall or The Earl & Countess of Wessex?

Announcement of the Swedish Court:

Charles was here in 1980,bound to be back again...He's a very close friend of HM..yes,I'm almost sure he and dear Camilla will be in attendance here.

I expect all the Heirs,and some spares,but all with their spouses.

I am almost certain Charles and Camilla will be in attendance as well. Apart from the apparantely close relationship the Dutch and British Royal Houses have, most other senior British royals already have engagements on the day, including the Earl of Wessex (the usual representative abroad). Sophie has engagements on both 29th and 1st of May. So unless there is a surprise appearance from the Cambridges or Harry, Charles and Camilla it is.

Nice video of the interior of the Nieuwe kerk in Amsterdam,having visited it twice myself I find it a most fascinating former church building and well worth a look around.

This link goes to the speech of HRH Queen Juliana on her last day of Queen on 29 April 1980. The film is not very good and I think Queen Beatrix will do it on a more modern way than Juliana.

The Earl of Wessex is attending the State Dinner on the evening of the 30th April for the UAE President. There is no mention of Sophie however and so far we have programme for the state visit.
