Bye bye, sweet Queen.....

Post by l!zzie on Mon Jan 28, 2013 1:47 pm

This evening our beloved Queen Beatrix announced her retirement.
On our national holiday 'Koninginnedag' at 30 april, she will renunciate her throne and we will have a king instead, King Willem-Alexander and his lovely wife Queen Maxima!!
An historical moment for the Netherlands today!

Thank you, sweet Queen Beatrix for being such a lovely, caring Queen for all of us!!

Hope you have a wonderful new King. I have to be honest, I have never heard of any of these people--looks like I have a date with the internet today! Thank you for keeping us to date with your life!

She has been our Queen for 33 years and she represented our country so, so well! No scandals, very professional but also very warm and caring.
She and her husband prins Claus (passed away 10 years ago) have three sons, of which prins Willem-Alexander's the oldest. He married Prinses Maxima almost 11 years ago and they have three girls! So after a King, we'll be having a Queen again! But that will take a while for she's only 9 years old!
Almost a year ago prins Friso (second son) had a terrible accident in Lech. He was struck by an avalanche and is in coma since then.
I feel so very sorry for her, must be terrible to have a child in such condition and still be responsible for a whole country.
I think she's a very strong woman and I admire her!

Hurray for our beloved queen!

We have been through so much, in her period of being Queen. But she has always been compasionate and loving to her people!

Hurray for our New King!
Hope things will turn for the better now!
A New point of view is always refreshing!

I do believe I met your Queen years ago when I went to the Tulip Festival in Ottawa, Canada.... don't remember exactly which year ' cause I've been there many times.
