we often see photos and feature or news on her Majesty, the UK HM, who returned from a holiday trip in Africa with her husband one 1952 day, somber day, when her pa died and she landed at the airport and stepped off the plane as queen- and all, all the stuff afterward, the annis horribilis, her kids, the press Oh just everything- but how many of us even know her name of the 'other' HM over there, the other 'blue haired lady' with the hats and the constitutional crown in the modern age thing going on?

so here is a spotlight- HM Beatrice sovereign of the Netherlands announced today she will abdicate and her son HH Willem will be the new king there in Amsterdam- they have a habit of this, so there can be a retirement but also some advising for the new sovereign; her mum Queen Juliana did it in 1980.

So on Apr 30 Netherlands will have their new king Willem, and he will enjoy mum's advice (Bea) and he will be the first king in like almost forever,


{Hit ViewPhoto then}click on right for more photos, see em all: her in ceremonies and with her husband who died, and Willem a bit younger in past times, this is what they look like,


and Here they are in the attchd photo,

I saw this, and watched the abdication announcement she made. I think it's an intelligent choice, especially as it puts a young, ish, king on the throne while still keeping her active as a kitchen advisor.
