The Dam Palace, the Royal Palace, de Koninklijk Paleis Amsterdam. It’s the place to be on April 30 when Beatrix of the Netherlands calls it quits. The unicorns are polished and ready!
And here’s the balcony everyone will be looking at, where Queen Beatrix might make her last official public appearance, and where her son, the future King Willem-Alexander, will definitely make one of his firsts. Wondering right now whether to scrape the courage to go or not – after all it’s not everyday a queen gets to abdicate. I definitely would if I wasn’t so averse to crowds, and it’s guaranteed this is going to be the mother of them all. It is going to be royally insane.
