What channel will you guys choose to see online the morning coverage? I know some of the online sites that will stream live, but perhaps you guys know which one is the best to follow.

I ask me, how the day for Beatrix, Willem-Alexander and Maxima had started. When did they woke up, when did they breakfast and when did the hairdresser and stylist came! And where did they sleep? In Palace?

I wish them a great day!

I feel like they must have felt back in 1952 when QEII was crowned....some people hadn't even seen a tv set then LOL!

Thanks.

Do you think we get live pictures from inside the palace at 10 o´clock?

Charlotte_Aster 04-30-2013 03:56 AM

Isn't it nice of Madame Tussaud's to put the figures of Wilhelmina and Julianne to watch over the ceremony?
