I guess we will hear who will represent The Queen soon at the inauguration. I'm thinking Charles & Camilla will go. Edward & Sophie, Anne and Gloucester's seem to be busy at the moment.

It would be nice if the Cambridge's were sent though.

Do you think that there will attend any non-reigning royals (now I am not speaking of Princess Irene's family) the inauguration?

I doubt, but it can be checked if non-reigning royals attended Beatrix's to have a general view.

Well, back then Felipe was too young to represent his country (12 years old), so I believe he will go this time with Letizia

No, there were no non reigning royals in 1980 or in 1948 (apart from the Parma's and Lippe's) so I do not expect them now either, which is a pity.

Is this really actually happening? Does anyone know Beatrix's reasoning for abdication? I mean, it is one thing to be personally tired (mentally and physically) about doing the job...but by doing this (abdicating) you basically are telling your son, it is your turn now, I have had enough! I don't know, I could be wrong but this is so rare these days and being a monarch is a job for life with your offspring taking over on the occassion of their death...?

It's common in the Netherlands to Abdicate in favor of the heir (Son/Daughter) After you get to a certain age unlike in Britain, Belgium and Sweden where it a 'Til Death Job' Her mother and Grandmother abdicated as well.

Abdications have different meanings in different monarchies - not all modern monarchies believe that to be monarch is to do so until the end of your days. Abdication due to age is considered the norm in the Netherlands - Beatrix is the 6th monarch, and will be the 4th to abdicate. Luxembourg also has something of a tradition of abdication (although not always out of choice), as 4 of it's 9 monarchs (3 out of the last 4) have abdicated.

In newspaper 'Trouw' an article was published of Margriet van der Linden, editor-in-chief of the feminist magazine 'Opzij'. In the article she regrets the lost opportunities of princess Máxima to be more active for minorities (gays, immigrants, women). She fears that in the future Máxima will be more limited to support these groups.

Adiós, Máxima, je kansen zijn verkeken - Nieuws - TROUW

I don't agree with the author and think that as crown princess she also wasn't allowed to be too much involved with minorities. They tried it with the commission PAVEM (integration of immigrants) and it proved to be too politically sensitive.

I completely respect the Dutch system and will only say this once, but it makes me sad that there will no longer be a 'Queen Beatrix'. She's such a majestic lady!

Oh, well - time moves forward and it's exciting to have a King Willem Alexander and Queen Beatrix.

I suppose that she will be referred to as Queen Beatrix only after her death again, so let's hope that we can enjoy Princess Beatrix as long as possible.

---

The New Republican society started an initiative to collect 40.000 signatures to start a debate in parlament about the salary of the new king. If a çitizens initiative has 40.000 signatures, parlament will need to discuss the matter there.

They compare the salary of the queen at present (€ 825.000,-) to the salaries of president Obama ($ 400.000,-), bundespresident Gauck (€ 199.000,-) and king Juan Carlos (€ 150.000,-) and add that all three of them do pay tax while the Dutch monarch does not.

I wonder if they will obtain the 40,000 signatures required!

I am wondering about that too,if people can sign online perhaps they will have a chance. But I didn't check how their campaign actually works.

------
According to two Argentinian newspapers, Vice president Amando Boudou will head an Argentinian delegtion of twenty people that will attend the ceremony, among them the chairwoman of the Argentine senate. The will stay in Amsterdam for about a week:

"Vice-president Argentinië bij 30/4" - NOS Nieuws

Apparently he will be travelling with KLM and NOT with Aerolineas Argentinas, even though president Fernandez de Kirchner issued a decree that Argentine officials have to use the national airlines for official visits.

Great to know Haakon and Mette-Marit will be going. Still no word on who will go from the British royal family. Perhaps Charles & Camilla or Prince Michael & Princess Michael of Kent.

Charles is meeting the UAE President for lunch on the 30th April I believe.
