A very solemn occasion for the new King and Queen consort and in stark contrast to all the recent celebrations.

Question about Queen Consort Title

Of course, I wish many many happy and healthy years for this beautiful family (so please do not read anything into this question -- it is simply curiosity).

If Willem-Alexander abdicates I assume Maxima would revert to being a Princess. However, if he died in office (many years from now), would Maxima be the Dowager Queen?

Or would she still revert to being a princess when her daughter succeeds?

She could, theoretically, revert if she wished to (at least, I believe she could), but she wouldn't have to.

The last Queen Consort of the Netherlands was Queen Emma, who went from being Her Majesty The Queen of the Netherlands (during her husband's reign) to Her Majesty Queen Emma of the Netherlands, The Queen Regent (during her daughter's minority) to Her Majesty Queen Emma of the Netherlands, The Queen Mother (the rest of her life).

Beatrix is not able to remain Queen anything because she was the Queen Regnant, but if Beatrix ceased to be Queen consort because her husband died she would still be a queen, just not the queen.

Those are wonderful portraits. I love the one where the King and Queen are standing together. He looks so regal with his cape and she looks stunning, every inch a Queen. The other portrait I like is the one with them and the girls and Princess Beatrix. That is a lovely photo. Its nice to see them all together. Thank you for sharing that link.

Absolutely beautiful portraits! One question I have though on the Act of Abdication document. Does Maxima's signature actually say Maxima? It doesn't look like it does.

Thanks Lucien. Not being overly familiar with the Dutch royals up until Beatrix announced her abdication, watching Maxima signing, it looked to me as it was an entirely different name than Maxima and got me wondering.

it's great news that they are visiting another country following their investiture. even though it's a short visit, i think it's important for them to get to know the other heads of state of neighbouring nations and have meetings with them, even though they probably know their counterparts, to be able to concentrate on "business"

i wonder what the visit will exactly entail. the official website mentions a lunch with the queen of denmark, but isn't it likely that some visits will take place?
