Happy Queen’s Day To Outgoing and Incoming Dutch Monarchs

The new king and queen

Today is Queen’s Day in Amsterdam, held annually on April 30.

But today is a special celebration as it marked the abdication of the popular monarch of The Netherlands, Queen, now Princess Beatrix in favor of his son, Prince, now King Willem-Alexandre and his fabulous new wife, Queen Maxima, the first-ever queen from Argentina.

Always a popular holiday Queen’s Day 2013 is even bigger because of this milestone event, marking the first time there has been a king of Holland in 120 years. (Hat tip David Mixner.)
