No, they are staying at the Amstel and the Okura hotel.

Isn't it a CORONATION and not an inauguration? Inaugurations remind me of presidents and principals (of schools) or am I just missing something?

Today is the day of days,HM Queen Beatrix will Abdicate,The Prince of Orange will be Inaugurated as King Willem-Alexander.

In honour of Both,Their House,and all of us here,here's the most beautifull rendition of the Dutch National Anthem,the "Wilhelmus" by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.



Amsterdam during this past night,many partying what's called "Queensnight" while others secured their spots by sleeping there to be on the front row to view the scene on the balcony at 10.30AM local time,and the cortege to and fro the Nieuwe kerk this afternoon:

And the first folks arrive in the city for the celebrations,early birds..:

Good Morning Lucien! Good Morning the Netherlands! Good Morning everyone! I think the sun is shining over the Netherlands today - at least as far as I can see, living on the east coast of England facing our regal neighbour across the sea! There is nothing quite like listening to a National Anthem first thing in the morning! What an exciting day it is going to be!
