Thank you for the pictures and information, lucien and iceflower! :flowers:

This must have been an extremely difficult engagement for the Queen, her first official event since the tragedy that happened to her son.
Her Majesty put on a brave face but you could see it came with a cost; her smile is forced - nothing like the happy, informal Beatrix we are used to seeing. Which, under the circumstances, is perfectly understandable. :sad:
A wonderful lady, at a very difficult time. But keeping busy when you have problems is often a good thing.

Queen Beatrix attended an anniversary concert to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the
Master Pianists series in Amsterdam today, March 11, 2012.

Thank you Lucien for these most interesting links. Certainly a very busy time for Queen Beatrix but I am sure her attendance at these events is so very special for all involved. I hear the TEFAF is particularly interesting this year.
A very professional Queen! I admire her for keep doing her duties.

I just cycled on the Dam square and it seemed quite busy at the church. Lots of cars, police, spectators and some vans of the NOS and other broadcasters. And it seemed somebody at the entrence was playing with fire.
