I wonder if she gave a notice ahead of time to the other European Monarchs? Such an historic moment.

I wonder if the Netherlands will get new Euro coins when Beatrix abdicates.

A funny tweet about a fake Prince Charles: Ok, mother, give one the remote control. There's something about to start on Dutch TV that you'd enjoy.

Abdication it is.

She doesn't think that it is too much of a burden, but she thinks it is time for the next generation.

The abdication & inauguration will be on April 30th

He's been The Prince of Orange since 1980, when he was 13 and when his mother became Queen Regnant. What evidence do you have for this 18 rule?

Abdication...I feel quite emotional.

King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima.

Very bittersweet indeed.

On the other hand, I am sure Willem-Alexander and Maxima will make a great King and Queen.

April 30th 2013,HM will abdicate.

HM feels it is time for a new generation,it is not that she is tired of her job
but sher has given it thought over ther past years to Abdicate,but now feels the time is right.

weird question, but do you think the "other" monarchs got a heads up on this one? Just curious more than anything else.

Good speech, loved the mentioning that she does not say goodbye to us but hopes to meet us again in the future and

that she was thankful for being able to serve

The only parts I understood were something about Prince Claus and then something about Maxima .. and finally, Queen Mother. Is that how she will now be known? When does this officially happen?
