Princess Beatrix Picture Thread, Part 1

If you have answers, please help by responding to the unanswered posts.
stylish during her engagement period...

a photosession after the engagement is made public in the gardens of Soestdijk Palace. I have seen it on film, and it is so nice to see a young & radiant Beatrix runnig over the lawn with flowers in her hands & so much in love! Prince Claus was quite handsome IMO

a charicature. Many, many, many jokes are made about the queens hat, even a song I believe... but I like them anyhow. It suits her.

the queen & the pig...
the queen visiting a farm where mentally handicapped children are working...

the queen taking the oath during her inhauguration in 1980

the queen having fun at the civil wedding of Constantijn and Laurentien.

from netty's site

princess beatrix and prince Claus waving to the public from the Palace on the Dam, on their weddingday.

also from Netty's site,
the queen visibly proud of her son and rejoycing his happines after she announced his engagement to Maxima Zorreguietta on national television.

the queen during Koninginnedag in Meppel where she received enormous support from the public because it was the first one after Prince Claus died and the Margarita scandal was exploding. Behind her her lovely sister Margriet, another treasure to the monarchy.

welcoming her good friend Nelson Mandela

the queen listening... (she is always asking quistions & wants to know everything)

receiving the Karlpreis

1955, Beatrix, her sisters and Queen Wilhelmina waiting on the airport for Juliana and Benrhard to arrive home from a state visit...

queensday, old style...

mother and daughter visiting the 'elfstedentocht', a famous iceskating tour through 11 cities in Friesland.

Beatrix and Claus during the wedding of their eldest son... notice how she is supporting him!

the queen and her dogs, no corgies luckily...

I think the pictures of the Queen at Enschende and Volendam show what a truly human and caring person she is. One could never imagine Queen Elizabeth putting her arm around a greiving person or even showing human emotion of any kind.
I agree with you, Queen beatrix is a very warm person & not to afraid to show it at some occassions. When she is herself, not behind the royal shield of hair/hat etc.. but just Beatrix, as she was in Enschede, Volendam, Curacao ( I have no picture of this, but the queen visited the island during heavy storms & her hair got all wet by a wave & she talked to the local community..which went wild and started screaming, Regina, regina etc.) she is loved the most by the dutch & everyone is proud to have her as a queen.
I think she is the most underestimated queen (with Queen Paola), due to her discretion, lack of love for pomp & ceremony & she does not like it to be the center of attention. It is out of this modesty that she does not want to celebrate her jubilee to grand in 2005. I will not comment who are the most overestimated queens of the world, but I have never liked the fashiondoll-sort queens in some countries..

PS I hope others will post here as well.

It is the Grand Diamond &
Sapphire Parure of Queen Emma of the Netherlands, it is a whole parure, but the queen barely wears whole parures. This tiara has two parts. Mabel Wisse Smit wore the part with the diamonds at her wedding. A very intresting tiara.
