I'd like Beatrix to buck the trend and remain Queen until she dies. She's a warm and charitable woman, not least of all a great Queen. But, I am a mere foreigner so...

Great news re Maxima though!

Idea makes a lot of sense in a modern gender equal world, but I for one am very happy we will have a Queen Maxima one day!

Does this come as a surprise as all of Maxima's peers will bear the title of Queen consort one day (Britain is a special situation, remains to be seen)? So do all "reigning" European Queen consorts.

In terms of a modern equal world, I am waiting for Daniel to become King consort but unlikely to happen

Provided that Beatrix will abdicate, how will she be known? Queem Mum?

Her mother Queen Juliana reverted to her former title, namely Princes Julianna. So did Queen Wilhelmina.

According to the law of the membership of the Royal House a former reigning monarch will be Prince/Princess. I agreet that in terms of gender equality a husband of a reigning Queen should be King-Consort instead of Prince.
But it seems that not even in Spain this will happen with a husband of a possible Queen Leonor contrary to the tradition as Spain had King-Consorts in the past.

wow wonderful!!! i wonder when this will actually happen? it has to happen to a crown prince first, and it looks like it will be W&M YAY!!! maybe it will be like a fever, you know, the weddings and engagements were annouced year after year as so was the pregnacies. finally is the last step, the enthournement!!!
maybe next year???? after the Queen 40 years of rule.

about the prince-consort thing. i always thought it was a bit unfair. BUT at the same time, the name KING is way superior to the name QUEEN, so it would not make sense to name the male consort above the queen ruler. so my ultimate ideia was to be like Morocco, a King ruler and his wife the princess consort.
King +wife= princess consort
Queen +husband= prince consort
this way it would make more right and not discriminating

On another message board the suggestion was made by a poster that Maxima deliberately acts to overshadow Queen Beatrix and will be very disappointed if the Queen does not abdicate in favor of WA but instead chooses to reign for life.
Is this a generally held opinion in The Netherlands? I was under the impression that both the Queen and Princess Maxima are really quite popular and that they have quite a good relationship.

Nonsense.HRH Princess Máxima makes no attempt to overshadow HM at all.That is not the way things are done,and it is not a reality.Again,bla bla of the Boards and other nonsense perceptions.HM and the Princess get along absolutely fantastic,they are besotted with eachother.

From the little I have seen and read on this and other boards, the general impression is that the Queen and the CP couple make a dynamite trio. It appears Beatrix genuinely likes, perhaps even loves, her daughter-in-law and shows it in a very tangible way.

She is seen so often with Maxima and they appear to have a really good rapport. Maxima's being seen in 19+ tiara's is just one of the really subtle ways Beatrix uses to get her message across to the truely thick!

Just because it is announced that Maxima will be Willem Alexander's Queen Consort does not mean that the Queen has to abdicate. When and if she does is entirely up to her. I don't for one minute think any of her children would wish here to abdicate unless that is what she wishes.

I thought she will automatically be queen. Why does parliament have a say in that?

Both Queen Beatrice and Princess Maxima seem to be exceptionally kind people. I was just viewing a clip from Maxima's wedding and was actually startled by the warmth of Queen Beatrice's response to W & M's bows to her. I hope she stays queen for life.

Because it is not usual in the Netherlands that the wife of the future king will have the title Queen. Its the same that it is not usual that the husband of the future queen will have the title king. In case of Juliana&Bernhard and Beatrix&Claus the men did not have the title king but prince.

She will be the Queen Consort, known as Queen Maxima of the Netherlands, as the wife of King Willem IV of The Netherlands.
The wives of previous Dutch Kings held the title of Queen, but in this age of equality some people felt that since the husband of a reigning Queen was just a Prince then the wife of a reigning King should remain a Princess. The same thinking applies to Maxima not being titled Princess of Orange even though married to the Prince of Orange.
