Geez, I don't like Princess Beatrix .. think she should be Queen Mother or something along those lines. Once a Queen, always a Queen (easy for me to say!)

Beatrix once proved again why she is and was such a great monarch. She mixed tradition with renewment so very well. She basically said what I predicted for her reason to abdicate.

She's had her ups and downs but her regency itself had no mistake. What a woman!

On another note, in a few months, Crown Princess Victoria will not be the only female heir apparent in the world anymore!

I'm happy her speech wasn't about Prince Friso's health (unless good news of course)


I was starting to fear about it

A great Queen, and I'm sure her son will do her proud.

Both Wilhelmina and Juliana were known as Princesses after their abdication.

I wish Willem-Alexander and Maxima well as they tackle their new roles. One thing I would ask; the most recent 4 rulers of the Netherlands have all been female, and they've all abdicated - is that a tradition for Queen Regnants, or will Willem-Alexander one day abdicate in favor of his eldest daughter?

3 rulers have been female, Wilhelmina, Juliana and Beatrix. Wilhelmina succeeded Willem III.

Okay, so I was off by one. That said, is that something that female monarchs do, or is it something that Willem-Alexander will be expected to do as well?

Why?
Ther is no 18 rule on that Title,the Monarch is free to bestow that when or if He / She feels it is right to do.
