The 'National Comittee Inauguration' is talking to the Jewish community. The date they have chosen for the farewell is September 14th, which coinsides with Jom Kipur and thus makes it impossible for many Jewish people to participate.

The comittee says that they chose the date as the venue (Ahoy in Rotterdam) was available on that date. The event will however not be moved to another date.

Esther Voet, of the CIDI (Center Information and Documentation Israel) called the palace a month ago and pointed the problem out. The private secretary seemed shocked. It is quite clear that they overlooked it. Chief Rabbi Binyomin Jacobs earlier critisized the decision too.

The Jewish Dutch aren't 'just' another group IMO, and Yom Kipur isn't 'another' religious holiday. I find it a minor blunder by the committee. It isn't that hard to check if any important religion has a special holdiay before they plan such an event.

Totally agree, I'm quite surprised.

Minor yes,very,especially since as far as I can remember,and that's really really far,anything like it has never ever occurred before as most of us 16 million then didn't even know or gave a hood.It has never ever before been the slightest problem and was never the norm to take notice of what each and every fraction has on the menu for celebrations.That has never happened,but ofcourse...let the games commence..on another date?..OK..sois..

I am looking forward to that documentary, it is the first time I hear about it. Nice of Queen Margrethe and the Empress Farah to participate! Apparently Shimon Peres, president Gül of Turkey, Mary Robinson, Sonia Ghandi, Kofi Annan and former German president von Weizsäcker will also participate.



Ivo Niehe will do the interviews.

--

Is it known what will perform at Ahoy? Good artists or Xander de Buisonjé & co? According to the NOS there will be 33 'odes' to celebrate the 33 years of the reign of Queen Beatrix.

Edit: according to the NOS it will be 33 'normal' Dutch who will perform. The Nederlands blasersensemble will accompany the performances. Some groups/people participating: Nederlands danstheater, Corpus Acrobatics, Humberto Tan, Erica Terpstra, Jeroen Henneman, Anita Witzier.

It would have been nice if the grand children of Princess Beatrix would come too, but it must be too late for them and perhaps rather tedious.


--
Tonight the NOS will air 'Portret van prinses Beatrix' on Nederland 1.

I read in the NRC that a person named Hans Sönghen is getting married today, so that may explain the absence of princess Aimée (assuming it is a relative).

--
Princess Beatrix will arrive last, after the king and queen. Which is against protocol but as a special honour.

------

The RF just arrived, Queen Máxima surprises us again and wears one of the two large sapphire bow corsages that has last been worn in the 80-ties. This one is not part of the (formerly-known-as) Mellerio saphire parure. http://www.dutchroyaljewels.nl/Diamo...re_Corsage.htm

It seems the photographers had a lot of attention for Pss Mabel greeting the prime minister, due to some (undoubtably fabricated) stories in the German gossip press.

The RF seemed terribly overdressed for the occassion, but it is nice to see them all dressed up.

The idea for the programme was nice, but some performances were bad and/or tedious. Even princess Beatrix had trouble keeping her eyes open at times.

The programme can be rewatched here: http://www.uitzendinggemist.nl/afleveringen/1394571

Princess Viktoria seemed to be wearing a dress that was worn previously by princess Aimée. Princess Marilene wore some diamond ears of wheat in her hair. Princess Anita didn't attend the programme after all.

Terribly overdressed?No..Most others were terribly underdressed for an occasion were the former Monarch was honoured.They know what to wear and what grandeur is.Many others don't.The RF came out in a blaze of wonderfull gear and jewelry,just like it should!..True..many people do not really understand that...but I don't blame them,especially not if dressing up to many means they wear a jeans and t-shirt....Next to that everything looks like overdressed....grin.....

But the evening was a succes,it went from toe-curling to being in awe and every segment in between.I loved it...and most important,Beatrix loved it as did the family...Priceless reactions.
