Dutch Queen Beatrix hits a jubilee coin in The Central Bank in Curacao, Netherlands Antilles, Willemstad, 29 July 2005. It's the first time ever that the Queen hits a jubilee coin in the Netherlands Antilles. The coins, worth five gulden/florin (silver) and ten gulden/florin (gold) are designed in honour of the Queen's 25-year jubilee. The Antilles-gulden and the Aruban florin are normaly produced in the Netherlands.

the queen has been so busy this summer, I hope she is enjoying a well deserved holiday in Tavernelle, Italy now.

I have seen the ceremony on television yesterday, very impressive. Especially the old veterans from the Dutch Indies. A shame that out foreign minister disgraced this day by apoloising to the Indonesians, insulting to the veterans previous gouverments sent there & who have sufferod so much from the Japanese occupation!!! The minister could have chosen a better moment I think.

Is it the first time the queen attends this ceremony? Much to late in my opinion.

Please excuse my ignorance Marengo:o, but what is this all about? Please help:)

Then I have to apologize! I know that the queen always showed a lot of interest to the eterans of the dutch indies & to the people from the molukken (don t know the translation of this island). During one of her christmas speeches they played a moluc song in the end.

Has the Queen had much of a chance to go to her villa? She seems to be so busy this summer - certainly much busier than other monarchs.

Does she always carry out so many engagements in the summer, or is this year special because of her Jubilee celebrations?

Marengo 08-23-2005 02:08 AM

She is more busy then usual, indeed because of her jubilee. I think she managed to go away for at least one week, but not much longer. Most of the holiday months was business as usual however, the queen already received 4 ambassadors this month for example.

Queen Beatrix in helicopter scare


23 August 2005

AMSTERDAM A helicopter carrying Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands made a precautionary landing while on the way to a royal engagement on Tuesday.

The incident took place in the south-eastern town of Rosmalen in Brabant Province. It was first reported by regional broadcaster Omroep Brabant and confirmed by the government information service RVD.

The RVD stressed the incident could not be described as an emergency landing.

The Queen was travelling to De Peel air force base near Eindhoven when the pilot decided the weather conditions had reduced visibility below an acceptable level.

The helicopter landed on grass next to the Mercure Hotel in Rosmalen and the Queen continued her journey in a car.

Thanks Marengo.:)

She appears to be thoroughly enjoying all of the Jubilee celebrations, but part of her must be looking forward to next year, when life returns to "normal" (or as normal as a Queen's life can be!)
