Hello Goodbye

Today is Queens day in the Netherlands and it is being celebrated with even more enthusiasm than ever. The reason for this is that Queen Beatrix has abdicated and the investiture of Prince Willem to King takes place today. The Dutch Royal Family are immensely popular and the whole country will be following this historic event.

Somewhere amongst the invited dignitaries there is Prince Charles from England - clearly hoping that this whole abdication thing might not go unnoticed back home..........
