I happened upon this live stream about 15 minutes ago and so have had the chance to see the balcony appearance live, which has been nice. A nice, big, crowd and the public is enjoying it.

Ok, well BBC News has actually had live coverage for quite a while and the story seems to be third on their list at the moment after two stories about crime and prisoners, so that's about as good as it will get...we should be grateful LOL!

The broadcasting will start again at 13h30 (local time), so I guess it will begin at 14h or so, after we got to see all the royal fashion

BBC News 24 is carrying fairly extensive coverage but it tends to be in little 10 minute slots as and when things happen rather than rolling coverage. I'm watching it all on NOS and I have to say, it's a joy. And of course I can improve my Dutch!

I have to agree You are right about that. The British Royal Family is really the only Royal Family that Americans know of and knows who everyone is is and their names. You also or talk about Queen Elizabeth, Queen mother, Prince Philip, Charles, Diana, Prince William, Harry, Princess Anne, Kate Middleton, etc... Everyone's knows who you are talking about. Then if you talk about Queen Margrethe, Princess Maxima, Crown Princess Victoria, Crown Prince Maakon then you will most likely get a confuse lookbecause they don't know who the heck they are. I understand why and it also has to do with the media.

The U. S media pretty much ignores the Dutch Monarchy and most of the other Europe Royal Families. They have for the most part have not paid attention to Queen Beatrix Abdication. I do like Queen Elizabeth and nothing against her but there would be a stark contrast if it was Elizabeth who was Abdicating! It would be on the news 24/7 with heavy amount of coverage on her abdication. All the networks (including Fox) would have hours of Special live Coverage planned of her abdication and Charales Corronation, It would be the only thing anyone would be talking about for days and Days on end!

Most people's here when you only say 'The Queen' know you mean Elizabeth because as far as they are concern there is only one Queen in the World and they would be surprise to find out ( as of yesterday) that their are Three Queens in the world. Many have never heard of Beatrix or Margrethe.

I don't know but my local channel mentioned it quite a few times on the news this morning. (they tend to repeat the headlines every half hour to hour). Which is surprising because most of us wouldn't know that there are other royals in Europe.

Sorry, but this is obviously too late. Check youtube & you'll be able to see all. Of course, it's in Dutch, but we don't need to speak the language to understand what is going on.
