Didn't she abdicate on her birthday, April 30?

Wikipedia says 30th April.

There were some foreign royals at Beatrix installation....the Prince of Wales, the Prince and Princess of Liege (Albert & Paola) amongst them but it was not a huge turn out from the Gotha. The dress code was rather like when the Dutch monarch opens Parliament, not a tiara event except for the new Queen herself.

Oh wow, if that is correct then it's definitely going to be an abdication. I am quite unsure how I feel...I am excited but a bit unsure...

Queen Juliana abdicated on 30 April 1980. Not today.

You're right. The headline was deceiving. But speculation is that Beatrix is going to abdicate on april 30 too. She will be the regent for exactly 33 years on this date.

And it was only this weekend that there was a news article dedicated to her and her upcoming birthday- saying that her popularity has been soaring the past decade.

April 30th was the formal abdication/transfer, but she announced her intention to abdicate in January 1980.

Even here in Brazil the media are noticing about the possible abdication. For me it's a bittersweet feeling cos I think Queen Beatrix is a great monarch and it's seems too soon for WA becoming a king. I'm used to see much older monarchs nowadays, he seems too young to join the club.

Gosh, I also have mixed feelings..... she deserves going to retirement .... and we have a young King and Queen, that is great as well....
Nevertheless it is a pity....

BBC News is now saying that HM Queen Beatrix will announce her abdication tonight. I think I am in shock.

I think she's definitely abdicating. Sad to see her go, she seems lovely. Don't know much about her, but from what I've seen she's a lovely lady and a good Queen. She hasn't had a very nice year. Willem-Alexander and Maxima are delightful, at least.

Hihi, well, one of the young generation has to start - at least we will get a truly GLITTERING Queen.... Looking forward to even grander tiaras for Queen Maxima - maybe even the Stuart at the coronation???

It is bittersweet, but in a way I like that WA will be King at this age. I think about Charles and that more than likely he will be King for such a short time if at all.

You always heard she will abdicate, but never thought it´s serious. But this is really a little shocker now.

But perhaps it's also the Dutch mentality. Our work is our work, not our life.
Very true too!!

This is the way it should happen IMO, look at Charles for instance. Beatrix will have time for her family, her growing grandchildren and can guide her son and granddaughter.
