On April 30 we celebrate in Holland the crowing of our Prince Willem Alexander. From that day forward Queen Beatrix will be Princess again and her eldest son wil be King of Holland.

The last 33 years we celebrated her Birthday on this date and a big part of Holland is coloured orange. Starting next year these celebrations will take place on April 27th which is the Kings Birthday. This year too we can buy all kind of Orange coloured things and there will be a lot of celebrations all over the country.

He will be the first King after a period of 3 Queens. His wife Princess Maxima will be called Queen but she will not have the authority to make important decisions. But then..... neither will he because Holland is ruled by a Government which makes all decisions......

It will be a memorable day for your country, and strange, I imagine, to have a King instead of a Queen! I'll look out for this on the news on Tuesday.
