I cannot see the queen remarrying because she was so devoted and loved her late husband the prince.In royalty it is about service and duty to the monarchy.Her Majesty has to decide on rather she will abdicate or hold her postion for life the queen is the only one who will know this outcome.

Were Queen Juliana and her daughter Beatrix able to travel in same mode of transportation, such as automobile or airplane, or was this discouraged because in case of an accident, both monarch and heiress would be gone?

Don't forget that when Beatrix was young (under 18) there were three other sisters who were still eligible to be the next heir. Eventually Irene and Cristina lost their place in the line of succession, but Margriet was still eligible. If both Juliana and Beatrix were gone there would still be an heir to the Dutch throne.

It depends if they have a similar protocol as the British do.

In the UK, the queen can not travel with her direct heir, Charles. It doesn't apply further it seems, as Charles has flown with his sons, and Will with his. Despite the fact that Elizabeth has three other children and now countless grandchildren, great grandchildren and several hundred other heirs.

If the same applied with the DRF, despite her other daughters, Juliana could not travel with Bea. Did Bea ever fly with WA, or has he with his daughters since he became king? There in may lie the answer.

Queen Beatrix did fly very often with her son. The Prince usually used the opportunity to make the compulsory hours to keep his license as an airline pilot: picture

Well that seems the clear answer: the Dutch don't have protocol between the monarch and heir traveling together.

When the royal family came back from Canada on August 2nd 1945 they did so in two planes: Beatrix and Irene in one plane and Juliana and Margriet in another. Air travel was still considered risky in those days. That is the only instance I can think of where it was mentioned that the RF travelled apart for security reasons.

At the moment there are more than enough people in line of succession to safeguard the throne in case of a tragedy. When the throne depended on 1 person in the 20-ties and 30-ties there were one or two safety measures: Queen Wilhelmina didn't allow her daughter to go away on long trips, especially not to the Dutch East Indies as Juliana had wanted. The car accident of Queen Astrid of Belgium came as a big shock to Queen Wilhelmina (she had a soft spot for King Leopold III); the plans for such a trip were shelved on Queen Wilhelmina's orders. Apart from the travel the Queen mainly was worried about tropical diseases that could harm her 'dearly beloved child'.

Going off topic, but does the King still have the opportunity to fly or has he had to give that up since his ascension?

Since Beatrix abdicated as the Queen Regnant, does she celebrate her birthday privately or is there a public festivity for her?

Her birthday celebrations have become a private matter. She celebrated her 80th birthday in January with a smaller and a great celebration, but privately, see here.

In one of the films made about Beatrix there is a scene where she pulls off a wig. Does she wear a wig?

I have never read it anywhere that she read a wig. The movies and series about our royal family are painfully amateuristic, overly theatrical, dramatized and to a large extent fictional. In one of these series there is an entirely fictional conversation between Beatrix and Bernhard -about Bernhard's interviews with the Volkskrant that were published posthumously - while it is widely known that Beatrix only discovered about these interviews when they were published, after her father died (in shock she apparently said: 'which man did we bury?'.

The broadcasters who order such series/movies are usually from the public channels. This means that there are budget restraints which has its effects on the script and set. Many of these series/movies are made by the same script writer -Tomas Ross- an ardent republican who made a career out of spewing all kinds of conspiracy theories around the royal family. His last movie was about Pss Mabel who supposedly had to be rescued in the Libyan desert during the revolution while she was there as an undercover agent for the Dutch government.

The only believable portrayal of a member of the RF was in the television series about the late prime minister Den Uyl, where his many meetings with Queen Juliana & the Lockheed affair had a central role.

Thank you Marengo. I didn't think she wore a wig but thought I would ask any way. The problem with people making claims about royals is they know that they can say anything they want and the royals will not answer back.

There was a scene like that in a drama-series about Q.Beatrix, but that was fiction...do you know which film it was?

We have seen Queen Beatrix' perfect hairdo splashed by an unextpected wave of seawater while visiting one of the Antilles. We have seen the hairdo blowing in the wind when sailing on the Groene Draeck. We can see differences in the model and the volume of the beatrixian hairdo, which all reveals that it simply is real hair.

It seems that it is not too difficult to create the hairdo. A Carmen curl set and lots of hairspray do the trick.
